Another knock

Felt really rough last night with sickness and stomach ache keeping me awake for a good part of the night. Sickness came on for no reason just as I was about to go to bed so I can only put the whole thing down to something I must have eaten.
I am hoping to feel better later today as I should be out with friends for eats and need to get myself up to speed as I feel weak with it once again.

Now that it is early evening I am feeling better as we get ready to go out but my stomach has been strained with the pains etc. I am once again indebted to Zoe for caring for me and getting to grips with things that need doing, such as arrangements for a break away and the next round of decorating, this time the kitchen.

Time off

Apart from the shortness of breath and the occasional bout of nausea I am not feeling too bad at all. Thankfully I am being told, instructed or just left to get on with doing very little, which is good for my body but not for my mind. We are soon to go out to pick a carpet so I can at least feel a little useful in that sense, other than that it is difficult doing nothing but necessary unless I want to be laid up in bed once again. I am enjoying a relatively pain-free existence at the moment and I am not suffering from the lack of chemotherapy.

If you hate your job right now, or the person next to you or the co-worker who is standing in your way it really isn’t all that important in the scheme of things; having wished for so long to escape the chains of the workplace I would gladly change places with most of you.

Being at home does have its benefits though and in good health I am sure it would be so different but for us, for now, we are making the most of this time off together and despite the difficulties I like being retired; if you can afford it, try it.
