Blogtober 31st


It’s the 31st of October which means it is also the last day of Blogtober! Today I am answering my questions based on 30th October.

  • What made me feel enthusiastic today?

I carved my pumpkin tonight and that had filled me with enthusiasm for much of the day.  I don’t really celebrate Halloween but I like the thought behind pumpkins – originating from Ireland the carved pumpkin started off as a carved turnip that had a candle placed inside it and was displayed on Halloween to ward off evil spirits.  It amazes me where some of our traditions come from and the meaning behind them and I find the history so interesting.

  • What drained me of energy?

I’ve been feeling throwy-uppy sick much of the day, it started not long after I got to work and continued through the day getting worse and worse.  I really couldn’t face eating anything at lunchtime as I felt so sick.  I left work at 4pm and came home and slept for a bit but it didn’t help much.  Feeling sick is the worst and really drained me of energy, I don’t think anyone likes to feel sick but I also have a fear of actually being sick and felt pretty anxious about it so that didn’t help matters either.

  • What did I learn about myself today?

I learned that I am really no good at dealing with being ill and really wish I was still a kid as my Mum would always know how to make me feel better.

  1. All the best things come from Ireland Suzi.
    Sorry about your bout of sickness.
    Hope work not the cause.
    I remember as children carving turnips to enclose lighted candles & going out on Halloween long before trick or treat. Are pumpkins softer inside than a turnip?
    Happy 🎃 Halloween

    1. Not sure what caused it to be honest, it wasn’t nice though! Feeling better generally now tho! Pumpkins are lovely to carve and so easy too! They are a bit like a marrow – seeds and stringy bits at the centre then flesh and the skin! Roxy loves pumpkin flesh! Xxx

  2. Oh man I hate feeling sick! I also hate the cycle of “I feel sick so I’m not going to eat” which turns into “I’m not eating which is causing me to feel sick” and back to “I feel sick so I’m not going to eat” lol

    Will you do one more post for October 31st feelings?! Or is this the last one?
