Apologies for not posting last week, getting home and back to 'real life' after holibobs was pretty frantic and mixed up with the added anniversary of losing my brother and the memorial service in Knowle to lay his ashes to rest.
So what's been happening .... well I got home from my holiday at 05:45 in the morning on the 26th with my appointment to have my bloods done at 09:30am ..... that made for an interesting if exhausted experience. The M23 and the M3 were both closed coming back from Gatwick so being tired and following diversions through unknown routes in the dark wasn't fun.
We went up to Knowle in Sunday for the memorial and internment of my brothers’ ashes. A long and emotional day, it was good to see so many people who had cared about Ian again. We were supposed to go to Loch Fyne for lunch after the service, but the thought of going to a fish restaurant after had my stomach rolling around so we just came home to the dogs and then I took a long nap on the sofa.
Tuesday of course was the anniversary of losing Ian and I’d previously booked the day off, but the thought of spending all day clock watching and reliving that day at home alone suddenly seemed like a really dumb idea so I went into work anyway just to get away from myself.
Sadly once again the thyroid is being a lazy slob so I'm going to be ultra good and avoid broccoli and cabbage again for a few weeks and just take care of myself and see if that helps right itself again.
