I just waved my Cornish friend off on her journey home; she stayed with us for a couple of days and they flew by. I was sad to see her go, but at the same time I am absolutely exhausted and the first thing I’m going to do after writing this is have a nap!
Yesterday was a lovely day; we had a lazy morning drinking tea in our pyjamas and having a catchup on everything (reminiscent of our days at university) and when my painkillers had kicked in enough to allow me to walk comfortably (ish) we caught the bus to the village and had more tea and a cake for lunch, before wandering around the little shops and gallery. We were out for a couple of hours and it made a nice change to my usual daily routine, especially with it being a nice sunny day.
I had some time in the afternoon to recharge my batteries, while we watched a film and then she helped me to colour my hair (something I haven’t been able to manage on my own) and turned it into a makeover of sorts – much needed too! In the evening we went out for a meal and then just had time to listen to some of her tales about weird Al Yankovic and Brian Cox before calling it a night.
This morning was a struggle, but I managed to get myself up and hobble to the bus stop with her to say goodbye and wave her off. Yes, I feel exhausted but it was worth every second and every spoon.
I’m off now to try and recover some,
