New Brighton Beach

This week was not good.

It was dreadful.

There were a few good moments but they were completely overshadowed by great sadness and loss.

If there is one thing I’ve learned this week is that life is precious. I shared a post on Tuesday about the little things in my life that make my life so great. This weekend, all of those little things, like enjoying the sunshine pour into my bedroom, drinking my first cup of tea of the day and watching the flowers blossom will feel extra special and meaningful.

My trip down to Hertfordshire which was suppose to be this coming week had to be postponed until the middle of May. At the time I was annoyed because I’d started preparing for the trip, but now I realise it was a blessing in disguise.

On Thursday I had my first driving lesson in an automatic car. It went really well. So well that I booked my theory test afterwards.

Before my lesson, when I was getting changed out of my work clothes into something more comfortable, my hip clicked and I was in agony. I went on with my driving lesson because I knew I wouldn’t need to use my left leg, but the pain continued for the rest of the evening.

I was still in pain the next day but decided to go into work anyway. Realistically I just should have phoned in sick, because when I got into work I was in an unbearable amount of pain. I decided to go back home and work from there with a hot water bottle on my hip and a constant supply of strong pain killers.

I can’t explain how grateful I am to have a job that allows me to work from home if I need.

Fortunately, I woke up yesterday feeling a lot better. I’m still in pain and still walking like Bambi but there has been a great improvement.

I’ve just been spending this weekend resting and removing so I’m fit enough to go back to work tomorrow. At least I can sit outside in my garden in the sunshine while I rest.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Get better soon, girl. What exactly happens when your hip clicks, is it like a luxation? Do you have extra pain meds to take when these things happen?

  2. Aww, I’m so sorry. I hope you are feeling better now. xx

  3. I’m sorry to hear that this week wasn’t good for you.
    I hope the next one makes up for the past one.
    Get well soon, Holly. I hope the hip is not troubling you any more.

  4. It is really awesome being able to work from home. I have that same perk where I work! I feel like I work a bit better in the office, though – if I lived on my own and not still with my parents, I’m sure I would feel better and more productive working from home. Hopefully your hip feels better soon, but it’s great that you can give it the rest it needs :) <3
