I had to give myself a good talking it this morning.I had been feeling really down over the weekend,disappointed about the cancelled holiday but also asking -why me.What are the chances of getting another abscess after 5 years of nothing and it has to come just when we are about to go on,what for us,was an adventure.I think as well it has really knocked me for six.We went to the Grosvenor Museum in Chester on Friday.C hadn't been before but I went in the summer with S and the girls and we were impressed with it.So off we went but there are a lot of stairs and we had walked a fair distance from the car park(it's free at Tesco if you spend £10 for 2 hours).On the way back I decided I wanted to go to RKM wool shop and when I got there I really didn't think I would make it up the stairs to the fancy wool.I did but it made me realise I couldn't have coped with Manchester airport etc.So I know it was the right decision not to go.I was also disappointed because after my knee op in January I vowed I wasn't going to the doctors for anything for at least 12 months!!
So today is the new positive me!We have been to Ikea at Warrington and actually bought something.We use our dining room as a second sitting room because we often want to do different things so we have a TV in each room ,C has his music,guitar etc in the lounge and I tend to sit in the back and watch Corrie.You can tell who is the intellectual in our family.In the dining room we have a black Ikea type chair and a 2 seater sofa.The sofa is going and we have bought another chair and a coffee table.We also had lunch there.It's usually meatballs but today I had the herring platter which was yummy.
I have just had a long chat with S.We speak virtually every day but she told me I was wonderful which is good to hear.We are helping out with the children after school on Thursday and her OH is having "the little op".So I am taking tea and will stay to put the children to bed so she can go to Zumba.
I think I must have felt down because I felt so grotty.It's all over and I am grateful for so many things in life.A missed holiday is nothing.
