That Was The Week, That Was

January 9, 2009

This week, with a couple of early mornings and the fact that I have not been sleeping very well, I am feeling very tired…and ready for the weekend!!  TGIF!!!


On Monday, the chap came and installed the new electric meter…Tuesday we expected the courier early with the new gas card (I think it’s finally sorted…quoting fail/fault23 did the trick!)


I was up early on Wednesday, too, as I had my appointment with the specialist over at King’s Mill Hospital, yon side of Mansfield  (there you go…over thirty years in Lincoln, and I finally succumb to a bit of dialect!!)


It has been over eighteen months since my thyroid went on a rampage (so to speak), and it’s still over-active, so he has decided that it’s time for radioiodine treatment.  Usually a thyroid will stabilise within a year to eighteen months with normal medication, but after that, if it’s still over-active, it’s time to go to the next step…and be nuked!  I will have to wait for a letter from a doctor at Nottingham hospital where the treatment is done, then go for a consultation, so who knows how long that is going to take!


Yesterday….I got my lie-in!  But had to rush about a bit to get ready to go into town to meet my friend Ange, for our weekly cuppa and chin-wag!  I was still very tired, as I was still sleeping fitfully and laying awake for, what seemed like, ages and ages!!!


Last night was spent in front of the goggle-box…a whole evening devoted to costume and fashion on BBC4…from the House of Chanel, Ozwald Boeteng, a programme made in the fifties (interesting!), Style on Trial about the fashions of the forties, and a programme that took us behind the scenes at fashion shows…made in the eighties!  Ooooh…those big hairstyles and the glitz!!!


And today?  What am I going to do today…?  Dunno!  I did sleep well last night, for the first time in a week, but whether I feel better for it I shall have to wait and see.  I have got to e-mail my friend’s daughter, to let her know we will be attending her mother’s fiftieth party next month…in Maidstone, Kent…so I’ll be able to see two old school friends who I haven’t seen for over thirty years.  A fair bit of catching up to do!! 


Have a lovely weekend…and be good…or bad…or whatever you want to be…!!!  XXX

    It is little wonder you have been feeling tired with all the sorting etc you have been doing. Because you;ve been active and not relaxing sleep doesn\’t become the restful experience we need. This is because our brain is still work mode when we go to bed. As for the Iodine therapy I hope it works, but it does help if you can keep taking your pills on a daily basis Sandi……….. You get my drift? Wishing you a happy weekend. xx

    Ahem!! Deep breath!! I just had to delete the comment I wrote in reply to your \’experiences\’!! You are naughty!! But do carry on, sweetie, because I like it…!!No, I haven\’t been clearing out all the time, Natalia, because Robert is in bed during the day, and if I get carried away I make lots of noise…so I sit quietly at the computer, or reading…Rebecca, and a book I bought yesterday and am reading at the moment…\’Concertina, The Life And Loves Of A Dominatrix\’ (which made me write something very saucy…so I deleted it….! It put ideas into my poor innocent little head!!!!)
