From about Wednesday of last week I had a bit of a sniffle, but thought nothing of it, I took Berocca & Echinacea day & night, thinking I would nip it in the bud. And I continued on my weekend planning.
I start planning on Monday what we've got to do the following weekend, the weekend just gone was to include:
- Garage Sales for decorations
- Passport Application
- Wedding Suit for Mr Mel
- Shoes for Me & Brideslave
- Suckitallin Underwear for Me
- Shopping for then cooking Duck & Chorizo Cassoulet
- Making Bunting for decorations
- Visit to Spotlight for bunting supplies
- Visit to Hall to check if iPod connector works ok
- Visit to several Vineyards to try wines we've seen come on special online
Friday 2pm I had headed downhill rapidly, still at work, I had dizziness, and was coughing, my bosses wife caught sight of me and sent me home.
Once I got home I lasted about 3 hours, then was asleep on the couch, then to bed, having dosed up on Vitamin C, Echinacea and Codral.
Saturday morning I was feeling a bit better, so 7am I head out to the garage sales while Mr Mel finishes off some work. I scored a napkin holder ($2) a cool old glass cordial bottle ($1) and the score of the morning, 10 Agave's for $20! Perfect for our front garden, with the hydrangeas we're going to plant.
|Agave - I picked up 10, 1 about 1/3rd this size, the rest about 1/5 the size (photo source)|
We stopped for a coffee & water, which helped, then headed into Hunter Street for menswear hire.
We ended up buying a suit for Mr Mel for only $150 more than it would have cost to hire a similar one, score!
By then I was struggling, so we headed home, I got inside, and made it to our bed, laid down, shoes and all and was asleep within about 3 minutes, woke up 30 mins later feeling a bit better.
Then the chills & fever set in, excellent. Needless to say the rest of the weekend was a write-off, Mr Mel was such a sweet carer, making sure I was warm/cool, fed/watered, asleep! And we swapped cassoulet for toasted cheese sangas, made with love by Mr Mel, so even more tasty :)
The downer is that weekend being a write-off means it's battle stations for next weekend! My to-do list is already doubled the one I had above! Am at work, which is probably silly as I feel dodgy, so will probably head home early.
The great part of the weekend is that my Mum came through her minor surgery with flying colours, I spoke to her about an hour after she woke up, and she sounded great, she is being released from hospital today, and Dad is all set to play nurse :)
Till next time,
