It nice to have a day off work. To have no plans.
We slept through the Fit Body Farm this morning. Think we’re both exhausted after such a busy weekend.
I didn’t have much voice this morning when I woke up after shouting over the noise at the party and singing at the top of my lungs and way to much talking…. But do not fear because it came back, Craigie hasn’t had the luxury of a silent day. 😬😆
We took Abbie the Campervan back to the garage at 9am and walked back home from Glengarnock.
It’s a lovely morning but bitter. Hat and gloves for this first time.
I have Freya, I’ve just hidden her 😂 it’s more a photo of Craigie’s ass 😂 and me wearing his hat. 😂
This next one would have been amazing except for the power lines.
Gloves were off by the time we got home but it was a cold walk.
I got vouchers for Gro Coffee in Irvine from my Auntie Marion. Strike while the iron is hot, we have spent them already!
We had a lovely wee lunch. Look how pretty the food was.
It was super tasty too! I also had my custom coconut milk latte and Craig had posh diet coke!
We did not have a cake. Check us. We still have a house full of cake and regardless of what you might think when you might want cake… you CAN actually have toooooo much cake 🎂 😂
Forgot to share a really cool card I got from Kate and Jamie who live in the village. I love it!
So I’ve actually handled all this turning 50 malarkey, quite well. Age is just a number but this doesn’t feel as easy as 40 did.
I have had the best time despite wishing we were in the Maldives for a fortnight. We’ve seen so many lovely people and I’ve made some very special memories of my 50th.
The HRT is going fine despite losing a patch and having to plaster one down. Craig is the key to a plaster sticking. Any I’ve applied end up falling off.
I’m off the progesterone just now as it’s 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off, but I have to go back on it on Wednesday night.
I’m a bit nervous as it made me feel so low a few weeks back, but I need to take it.
“If oestrogen is the feed you use to grow a lawn, progesterone is the lawn mower that keeps the grass in check”. So my eloquent Doctor put it.
I’ve spoken to so many people this weekend about menopause. There are 34+ symptoms that are now attributed to peri-menopause or menopause.
All of these can be helped by replacing the hormones that we lose at this time of life.
It’s no less natural than taking insulin when you are diabetic or even for humans to drive in a car. It doesn’t matter what age you are. There are benefits from taking HRT that will help on later life. If you’re not sure, read up on it. You might be surprised.
In a stark reminder of my new age bracket, I’ve just received my bowel cancer screening kit. Craig’s lucky I won’t get him to help with this. 😆😂
It’s not even 3pm and I have my feet up, I’m listening to my birthday playlist on Spotify as I write this. I never got much chance to listen on Saturday.
I may have a nap.
Yet the garage phone just as I settled down…. Abbie is still wobbling despite having the passenger side drive shaft fitted. They need her overnight. They’ll drive her up on the ramp tomorrow….. the saga continues.
We are just watching the last ever episode of The Walking Dead. The end of a blood thirsty, zombie era. Who’d have thunk the blog would ever say those words?!?
I actually cried…. Way more than I should have. I’m just tired 🥱 😂
Hope Monday was ok for you.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
