had a little jaunt.....
last weekend was my first away in such a long time. spontaneously, my mum and i, plus little rosebud travelled up the m40 to my aunts in warwickshire. nothing was planned, it was suppose to be a day out, yet my aunt asked if we would like to stay the night, which we did. dads in madrid working, so it was us girls in the motor!
the m25 was a nightmare. deciding to go on the motorway instead of travelling through london was probably the wrong choice, yet choices are made. what should of took two and a half hours, turned into near on four hours. we never rush, years of travelling has made us into tortoises. we stopped off on a service station on the m40,we was a little cheeky, rosie came into the service station, no one questioned me, thank goodness as it was too hot for her to sit in the car.
i was pretty much beat when i got to my aunts little village. however i suffered the afternoon in stratford upon avon. i didnt realise how useless my body really is. i cut corners at home, know my limits, yet i feel i cant when around others, however i have no choice now. stratford was crowded so we had a short push/walk along the river, then a tea and home. i had a lot of chest pains, so i lay down in the living room with the french doors open. im sure having rosebud there helped no end. she was excellent by the way, no accidents on the newly layed carpet.
i woke the next morning, mornings are the worse, i lay in bed knitting my socks, i should call them worry socks, like worry beads. mum saw that i wasnt so good, so we left around 11am. home we travelled. avoiding the m25, instead driving through london, which was crowded yet i knew a few short cuts. homeward bound.
the last few days ive noticed a few changed in my body, but i didnt suffer so much thank goodness. luck old me ive got the barium meal on friday, something to look forward too!!!
