The Weekend Blog
1st February 2015
What a week!
I went to the doctors on Monday and my GP has convinced me to have steroid injections in my hip because I am suffering so much now. I’m going in to have an injection on Tuesday, and while I am dreading it I am also excited to see if it will work. It could be life changing if it does.
On Wednesday I went to Birmingham to meet up with my friend Becky and to attend a postgraduate fair. I’d had to cancel on her when she arranged to visit a week after my birthday due to hip problems, and so she gave me my birthday presents that day. She gave me a beautiful storage box covered in maps, and inside was a jar of Nutella with my name on it and the gorgeous watch in the photo above.
(Yes. Yes I do have the hairiest arms you’ve ever seen on a woman. It’s good insulation in the winter.)
Anyway, the postgraduate fair was pretty interesting and has certainly made me think more about studying for a masters, however funding is such an issue and so I might wait until I’m in a better situation financially.
When I got back to Liverpool on Wednesday I realised that our toilet had been leaking quite badly. We had to turn the water off and wait until the morning to call the letting agency. It was 8.30pm before the plumber called, at which point I had almost lost all hope and was preparing myself for another waterless day. Fortunately it was a small problem to fix and all was well again in the flat.
Friday I conducted another interview with a business at Albert Dock. This one was my favourite because the manager took me to Costa to conduct the interview and bought me a coffee. I’m hoping I have enough data now because I’m running out of time and also because my hip isn’t coping walking to the docks so often.
On Friday afternoon I caught the train home to Shropshire with Tyrone, and we are heading back later this afternoon. Yesterday I went bridesmaid dress shopping for my cousin’s wedding with her other two bridesmaids. We’ve found and bought the most beautiful dresses, but it’s all a secret until the wedding in August, so come back to see the photos then! After a successful shopping session we went for cocktails, and then later on in the evening I went out for food with my parents and friends.
I’m going back to Liverpool for a rest!
This coming Friday I am suppose to be going to see Phoenix Nights Live in Manchester. I say “suppose to be” because one of the main characters collapsed during last nights performance and is still in hospital. I really hope the show will still be on when I go on Friday. Get well soon Ted Robbins!
