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.
