Hey Everyone, how are you all doing? For those living in the UK are you finding the weather a little easier to cope with? ( I certainly am!) Leave me a comment and let me know how your weekend has been.
Last week I went and stayed with my Aunt, Uncle and Grandmother for the week 🙂 I love spending time with them we always have lovely adventures and… nothing beats my Grandmother formerly known and Nana’s cooking!
So its been a lovely week, however my MS symptoms have been playing up quite a bit and I found myself resting quite a bit in the afternoons. My main symptom being… fatigue! I’m fine with dealing with fatigue my body tells me what it needs and its usually rest.
My Aunt and I would usually do something nice in the mornings and then in the afternoon whilst she taught the piano I would rest in my bedroom or sit in the lounge and have lovely chats with my nana — I love talking to her I always ask about things she used to do when she was my age, we are very close 🙂
So let me fill you in on my adventures that I got up to…
Monday morning my Aunt and I popped into the town centre to pay the final fee to the Registry Office where we are getting married next year! How exciting!! George and I have an appointment with Peterborough registry office this week to give notice of marriage and then… we are all good to go and can get the marriage package delivered! Its all happening now!
I had to rest in the afternoon as the fatigue hit, so I spent a few hours in my bedroom resting whilst my Aunt worked so it was a win win all around — fatigue was a little better after a rest — its been horrendous in this heat that we’ve had!
It was also my Uncles birthday today so we all made a little picnic, brought a cake and went down to my Aunt’s field where she keeps her horses and had a wonderful picnic ☺️ — I also taught my Nana how to Snapchat! That was hilarious!
Today was a little more restful because of what’s to come tomorrow!
We had a little trip out in the morning to a little garden shop where even in the heat we’ve been having, the flowers all looked beautiful ☺️ there was also a lovely little cafe attached so of course we had a cup of coffee and a little something to eat! Delicious!
I did however paint my Nana’s (grandmother formerly known as nana) nails! She loved them and k just spent time with her, which was really great! I love spending time with her ☺️
Today was a big day! We all had really early nights (I slept really well) and then today we were off to see some of my Aunt’s friends who kept and trained race horses!
As you all know I’ve been to Royal Ascot and a couple of other race days, so it was really exciting to see what goes on behind the scenes.
These horses were just magnificent! All in such amazing condition, real athletes! And they were all super friendly! Considering they had never met me before!
They were well looked after and had lots of things to keep them occupied, we even got to watch a couple go on the gallops, which was so exciting! I was able to sit down a lot because my Aunt took the car around and her friends knew about my MS and that my fatigue was playing up and they were wonderful to me.
After having a look around the yard we popped into the local town centre for something to eat and a look around, it was a beautiful little town and we stopped at this vegan/gluten free cafe and honestly I had THE best pea and mint soup I’ve ever tried! And the recipe was so simple!!
We then had a little look around some shops whilst on our way back to the car, which is when I found my bargain of the week!! In the British Heart Foundation charity shop I found a gorgeous dress.. my size for £4.99!!!!! Amazing!! I’m going to wear this to my friend’s birthday this coming Saturday!
Once we arrived home I had to go to bed for a while as i was exhausted, however WHAT an amazing day!
Well after our exciting day yesterday, today was spent doing very little. We did pop into town because my Aunt needed to pop to the bank.. of course we had to go for coffee and we went to the cafe where the own will be catering for the wedding — we always go there as it’s so gorgeous!
Then we came home had a lovely home cooked meal by nana and the rest of the afternoon was spent resting and looking through my Aunt’s scrap book that I made for her 60th birthday ☺️
We also had our final picnic at the field because tomorrow I went home to be reunited with my boys 🙂🐈 — I also made the “Jus-Rol” chocolate croissants and introduced them to nana.. it was so funny! She absolutely loved them! Bless her!
Homeward bound! Today is the day I was reunited with my boys! Firstly we stopped off at a local retail store called “Boundary Mills/Downtown near Grantham for some retail therapy. I got some amazing sandals for £10 — bargain! Then I got home to my amazing boys and we generally relaxed the rest of the weekend ☺️
I hope you enjoyed reading this week’s blog post ☺️ sorry it’s been a bit late — technical difficulties!
Sending you lots of love always,
