Day Four in the Sick Mummy House.
Well, I’ve eaten porridge and toast! Go me!!
I’m even contemplating a shower! Although I still feel dizzy when I stand for too long.
But I need fresh air, and I need to measure my garden to see if my sister can fit her tent in at the end of the month… So, those are my plans for the day! Tomorrow I must be back at work, it’s a very important week for crossover as I’ll be working with another child next year and we need to get to know each other… We did three days last week so three more days this week is better than two.
So, what’s new with you..?
Day time adverts are really starting to bore me! Although I’m loving early morning Frasier! Such reminiscence :-) the two shows that remind me of my time in Florida are Frasier and Friends :-) I used to watch them with my host mom. Host dad hated Friends because of the lesbian couple, but then he had a lot of very old fashioned views. I just let him run with it, his house and all that.
Our town centre is slowly being pulled down to be replaced by modern buildings. Including car parks. This isn’t the first time, a lot of the Victorian buildings were removed to be replaced by 60’s/70’s concrete. Now the concrete is to be removed for modern buildings.
First of all, my confession, I love big slabs of concrete, huge motorway junctions, cooling towers, city centre car parks and seventies department stores. This fact may our may not be colouring my judgement - who knows - but I really wish that these judgements weren’t made against old building just because they’re old fashioned. If a building is unsafe it’s different, but when they’re just removing buildings to make a town centre look trendy it’s just wasteful.
ON ANOTHER TANGENT
I don’t know if I’ve been stuck in too long but suddenly my whole house smells of dust, and trust me, this sort of thing doesn’t usually bother me! I must just have a dusty nose! Me needs fresh air…
I’m horizontal again though ;-)
Has anyone seen Empire? I’ve seen a lot of adverts for it over the past couple of days. It seems to be full of not nice people therefore not very entertaining, in my opinion. There have to be characters that I identify with, or aspire to be, for me to enjoy a t.v. show. Another memory of my time in Florida was watching Jerry Springer and Montel Williams etc.. after a couple of months I realised I was yelling at the telly and I knew that wasn’t the person I wanted to be. I haven’t watched that type of programme since then, I also stopped watching Big Brother when they started to choose contestants based on their likelihood to argue. I want my fantasy time to be spent involved in the lives of people who give a damn, maybe that’s why I love Fried Green Tomatoes so much.
And now I’m waffling. I have plans for my day which will start with a shower.
Thank you all for supporting me through my whinging during this mild illness!
I’m such a shit patient!
