The Worst Weekend

I was so excited for this weekend just gone. We’d booked a hotel so that we could do Billericay parkrun on the Saturday morning so that I could complete my unofficial Gavin & Stacey parkrun challenge. They really should make that a proper challenge!

However after arriving at the hotel on Friday afternoon I started to feel really queasy and not well. We still went ahead with going out for dinner as we had a booking and my husband still needed to eat. I ordered a bland mushroom risotto. I thought that was the blandest thing on the menu but when it arrived it was packed with garlic and I struggled to eat it without thinking I was going to bring it back. I ate very little and sat shivering and achingly cold in the boiling hot restaurant.

We went back to the hotel as soon as my husband had finished and I crawled in to bed. I watched a little of Children in Need whilst shivering under the duvet with a pounding head and the overwhelming feeling I was going to be sick. Thankfully I wasn’t, being sick is the worst thing!

I slept terribly as through the night I developed a heavy cold and get waking with a horribly dry mouth from having to breath through my mouth from having a blocked nose. I ached all over too. The alarm went off and I made the decision not to go to parkrun. I was devastated. Instead I had a couple of hours extra in bed and then we drove home.

Sunday I was supposed to be going to spectate at the Gosport Half Marathon which practically runs past my front door and which lots of my friends were running in. Sunday I was no better though and again had some extra time in bed.

I know you’re going to hate me for it, but to cheer myself up, I put up my Christmas tree and decorations. It started off badly though as my husband dropped a box of baubles and decorations. We lost about 50% of the box. Putting up the tree only took me an hour but it wiped me out for the rest of the day. It was worth it though!

What a write off of a weekend! Sorry for the moany post but I like to keep it real haha.
