Turn for the worse.

Yesterday I didn't feel too brilliant. As the day went on I felt worse and by bedtime I had a headache and felt really uncomfortable all over, had no appitite and felt sick.

This morning I got up and ready for work, then as I drove away from dropping Yorkie off at his work I was sick all over the passenger seat and floor of my car. Actually while I was driving! So I pulled over, wound down the window, but opted vom into a carrier bag rather than have my head taken off by a passing lorry.

Each time I have taken one of these penacilin tablets I have either come close to, or have actually been, sick. Usually between 20 mins and an hour after taking one. I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't be taking them! Wiggle certainly seems to want them out of my body and sharpish. So I drove home - trying not to gag again on the smell inside the car, but the fumes from the other traffic when I have the window down make me feel even worse.

When I got in I tried to call the midwife, but she was either not on duty yet or already dealing with someone else and I couldn't get through, so I called the docs instead asking for advice either from a midwife or nurse on duty, or my doctor himself. I was told my own doc would be available to talk to me in about on hour and a half so I rang him back then.

He was very suprised to hear that I'd had such a strong reaction, especailly since I had been given one of the least reactive versions available, but insisted that I didn't take anymore. He asked me a few questions about how I felt regarding this water infection and I told him that I was suffering none of the usual symptoms (burning, smelly pee, back ache round my kidneys, all the stuff I am familiar with). He asked for another sample. The infection was only slight, he sys, and could possibly be a contaminate from something else - such as bacteria from any other part of my (ahem) undercarriage being passed into the bottle by my flow of pee, but that with my medical history any sign of infection has to be taken seriously. Another sample done today, midflow, and after a bath or shower to reduce any chance of other bacteria getting in, would help work out what is wrong with me. So I took a shower, made another sample and dropped it off. Hopefully we'll know by Monday or Tuesday.

Meantime I'm sat at home on the settee feeling pretty sorry for myself and getting hacked off with cold-callers who seem determined not to let me sleep! Work are also keeping in touch, making sure I'm alright and still asking if I can do this that or the other. I have no appitite still. I've even tried munching on some chocies to see if that bit of comfort food will perk me up, but I have no intrest in them either.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
