Ramble #8

It’s been a funny old week, primarily because I’ve been off work with ghastly cough and have been feeling all round icky. I did start the week at work, feeling fine until a rogue cough at 9:30 turned into a coughing storm of doom and after 5 hours of work, I accepted my colleagues repeated…

Rambles #7

It’s been a funny old week. For starters it has flown by. I got back from Skiing late on Saturday (11th), after a delayed takeoff and a taxi driver who seemed intent on doing 50 in a 30mph windy country place. I got very car sick. On Sunday, I cooked with my Dad for the…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No 4

I skied. I wish that statement filled me with happiness but actually I’ve had a terrible day. It took me about 3 hours to get down one run from the top to the bottom of the mountain. I was crying hysterically, suffering continuous panic attacks, swearing and angrily hating myself. I have tight calves, I’ve…

Travel Ramble – Tignes No. 3

I almost feel like giving myself a reward for remembering to blog about my holiday three days in a row! But then I remember the crepes I had for lunch and think I’ve been rewarded enough! Update from yesterdays post: After much research on the subject of ski boots, I concluded that my boots were…

Ramble #3

For better or for worse, I have survived this week! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have survived it all!!! I generally thought I’d never get past all the stress and anxiety I’ve been dealing with the last month and a half, the tunnel was very dark for a long time! I…

Reaching 100

I did a post a fair while back in celebration of reaching 50 followers. I’m late in this celebration but I now have over 100 followers. It still amazes me that there are people out there willing to read my book reviews and general book rambles. This year, I have accomplished more than I ever…

Weekend Catch Up

I have not done a weekend catch up in forever! Mostly just because I haven’t been doing much on the weekend that warrants attention, but, I thought it would be good to catch up a little on what I’ve been doing and what I’ve been reading. I have, since Thursday 17th October, been suffering from…

Unexpected Turn of Events

So, I had minor surgery on Friday (27/09/2019) and stupidly didn’t think things through. I’ve only had long surgeries with general anaesthetic and didn’t make the connection that I’d be out for the count and out of work all Friday. I did however, expect to be back at work on Monday but I got signed…
