Weekly Roundup 20/10/19 – 26/10/19


  • Reading

I’m still reading Who Is Tom Ditto by Danny Wallace.  I have been taking it a bit slow despite wanting to find out what happens as I really don’t want the story to end!  I had a mammoth reading session in the bath a few days ago which was a really lovely way to spend a rainy evening when I had backache as well as shoulder pain.

  • Watching

I’ve not really watched anything this week, I have had the television on at times but more as background noise rather than watching anything.

  • Listening to

My Audible subscription renewed the other day and I downloaded “This Is Going To Hurt” written and read by Adam Kay and have been listening to that in work.  It was really interesting to hear things from a doctors perspective and was really funny at the same time, I can’t count the number of times I had to suppress a chuckle as I was in work!

  • Eating

This week has seen me eat a lot of rice-based dishes, mostly rice with some kind of veg mixed in, or risotto.  I make them so that they are vegan and have been really enjoying how simple, quick, filling and cheap they are to make.

  • Drinking

I bought some lovely white tea from The English Tea Shop at the beginning of the week and have been enjoying making my way through the selection that I bought (white tea, white tea and blueberry, white tea and cranberry, white tea and citrus).  I’ve not had white tea in years and it has been really nice to start getting back into drinking it.

  • Doing

This week has seen me doing lots of little things from my physio appointment on Monday, collecting my prescription, changing the bedding over, doing the laundry, working on a few little projects and making plans for the next few weeks.  I feel like I’ve not done much but seem to have been busy most of my waking hours.

  • Feeling

This week has been a real rollercoaster of emotions from feeling anxious and worried about my physio appointment, to feeling pleased that I did the logo for work and emailed it (and my presentation off), to feeling tired and grumpy then feeling relief that the weekend was near and not feeling motivated to do anything much because the weather has been really rainy, cold and dark.  I did buy myself some Vitamin D tablets which I have been taking for 4 days now and am hoping to see an improvement in my feeling tired all the time, once I have got that bit fixed then I think everything else will get better.

How has your week been?  What have you been up to?  I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. We have many injured hedgehogs at the moment. Especially young animals. Still too weak for hibernation.

    PS: What do you think about HIIT? It does not take much time (9 minutes, 3 times a day) and makes fit even on rainy days.

  2. My week has been an emotional roller coaster and a stressful one. I made a post yesterday lol. I’ve been eating a lot of chocolate which I normally don’t do, but yum!

  3. Hope your physio appointment went well. Good that you were able to incorporate some feel good stuff into your busy, productive week.
    I really like your idea of splitting your week into different topics, not forgetting the all important one for me – feeling. Good ideas for my journal Suzi & I hope you have a good week. 🙂🌈

    1. Thank you! Physio was ok, next appointment is 12th November. I got given some stretchy bands to do some load bearing exercises with but shoulder has been really achy this past few days so haven’t done as many as I feel I should have xxx
