If my life were a cartoon I’d be literally coloured blue right now. I am in the midst of sorting out a group of medications for a condition(s) I have mentioned on here in the past and one of them is disagreeing with me vehemently right now. I will write about it properly when everything is sorted, I think one of the medications will work and I don’t want to ‘curse’ it by writing about it too optimistically before I’ve given it time. Anyway I’ve been to the docs today to get a repeat prescription of the successful medication and to discuss going off the one that’s been making me feel literally like the colour blue (amongst other things) and the doctor agreed with me, so I’ll be off the one that is disagreeing with me in just over a week. But meanwhile I’m trying very very hard not to comfort shop, you would not believe the price of the stunningly beautiful tapestry kit I’ve been drooling over and I don’t even do tapestry, yet. I think (if I can control myself, which I have to), this may be making it’s way to me instead at the end of the year as a self brought Christmas / birthday present or mmmm if I do really well at my book selling events coming up?
Whilst there I happened to have yet another coughing fit and (and I wasn’t there to see the doctor about my cough) the doctor goes “oh dear”, listens to my chest, agrees with my suscipion that it’s my asthma worsening (I reckon it’s due to my hayfever) and I’ve been prescribed the preventative inhaler, I should have sorted that out ages ago, maybe then I would have been able to have actually run the race I did yesterday.
Anyway I’m working in 10 minutes, groan, just what I need, although I did enjoy the spot of research I did earlier today for my tuition session tonight on the arguments for and against global warming, I think the for argument won but I tried to be balanced.
Edited to add – it’s now 8.10pm and my client hasn’t shown up yet which is strange (for him). Private tuition can be plagued by clients not turning up but this one is reliable and whilst I could do with not working tonight (a nice hot bath and a good book sounds really nice right now), I could also do with the £20!
Edited to add again – it’s now 8.20pm and still no client, I really don’t think he’s going to turn up but you just know if I go and grab that bath what will happen. So I’ve been playing with Paint, this is me as a (very bad) cartoon.
Mmmm ok, it doesn’t look like WordPress likes my Paint files, jpg may I point out (i.e I don’t think it should have a problem). You’ll have to trust me, it was a work of art (not). Oh I want a new scanner, then I would have drawn something by hand.
Anyway thank you dear anonymous (mostly) WordPress readers, writing this has actually cheered me up a bit. I still have stomach ache (another suspected side effect) which a bath would cure, but we know what will happen then, even though it’s now almost half way through the session that was booked. Oh well if I can’t have the bath, I can still have the book.
Yet more editing (8.35pm) – oh it did work ↓, see I told you it was art
