Writing from my sick bed again today, lemsip in hand. It’s safe to say that 2018 hasn’t been the year of dreams for me so far. I think I’ll just brush this week under the rug and pretend it never happened. I look around social media and see everyone already achieving so much and it would be really easy to get myself down about it. But I’m not going to do that. I got sick, I can’t help it and the only thing I can do is go easy on myself and take this year at my own pace.
So how was my week? It makes me laugh that I can safely say that I’ve been sick all year. It’s just been a really bad flu so it could be worse. I’ve been in bed most of the week but I was able to venture out of the house for a few hours on Friday when I had a burst of energy.
Topher and I went to the cinema and saw The Greatest Showman and Ferdinand. Both films were really good and it was just what I needed. Ferdinand made us both laugh (though especially Topher – he was giggling more than the kids in the room) and The Greatest Showman was escapism at it’s finest. I enjoyed the film but I loved the soundtrack even more. When I got home I immediately checked Spotify to see if they had it and they did. Score! I’ve been listening to nothing since and it’s been a bright spot in the sea of sneezing, blankets, sore heads and tissues (so many tissues).
To round off a somewhat crappy week, I’ve done some damage to my car. Topher and I headed to the shop today to pick up some cat food and another driver almost crashed into us. It’s a ridiculous piece of road near us that is not clear which combined with the fact that the other person was going way too fast and didn’t realise it was my right of way luckily ended up with no damage to either car. We were both able to stop in time. Just.
So how did my car get damaged? I was flustered I ended up scraping my car alongside a lamppost when I was trying to move it out of the way. The sun was in my eyes and I didn’t see it. Silly silly. Luckily it’s all cosmetic damage as far as I can tell. Poor car.
Week 1 of 2018 is down and good riddance to it. Hopefully that’s all the bad stuff out of the way! Here’s to next week.
How was your week?
