A huge thank you to all who voted for me in the art competition – I actually won!!
I’ve never entered or won a competition before, so that was really really cool 🙂
The $100 gift card had to be used on amazon.com, so finding things that would ship to the UK and where the shipping didn’t add $20+ was a little tricky, but we got some great things nonetheless.
For anybody interested, here’s what I got with my prize money!
Two kits for hand stamping, which is a new hobby I’m trying out. Currently I only have the alphabet, this was today’s attempt (the heart at the bottom was made using a Y!)
The stamps I bought (I’ll be able to make my own dog tags with the numbers!)
A 6ft light dog lead and an easy clean treat bag for the pups.
A Pokemon cap for me, because I fell in love with it XD
And I got my partner some t-shirts too…he’s an even bigger Pokemon fan than me, so yeah 😛
Today I have been floored by the worst cold.
My nose is a tap, my throat is covered in sand paper. I fought valiantly for less than four hours sleep last night, and exhaustion combined with being physically ill has lead to a high number of seizures today. Being a spoonie AND being ‘normally’ sick sucks XD
Alongside bipolar fun, I’ve been feeling crappy physically too recently.
I’ve had a lot of migraines and a lot of neck and back ache (which usually happens daily in a depressive episode but I haven’t been depressed recently!), and then today was the icing on the cake.
I’m sleeping more atm (12 hours up from 8-9 hours). At the beginning of this week I had a two day migraine, which left me in so much pain I couldn’t do anything.
Ever since that I’ve had ear ache in my left ear and just felt really tired. Then today I woke up with a really sore neck which leeched into a headache.
Since early morning I’ve had a really bad allergic reaction ALL DAY to something in the house…I should add I don’t really have any allergies, I’ve tested allergic to tree pollen but nothing else. We don’t have any trees in our house haha and nothing’s changed over the past few weeks, yet today my body is claiming I am allergic to everything in the house. Outside I’m better, little snuffly-sneezy but nothing like inside.
This seems to happen with me, every other month or so I have a day or two where allergies cripple me and I don’t know why.
So all day today I’ve been sneezing, big painful sneezes with a tickley throat, nose and itchy eyes. The sneezes result in a bloody nose and a very sore throat. 24/7 irritation is awful and I feel sorry for people who have allergies this bad daily!!
I feel absolutely exhausted. Totally drained. My head is all muggy like when you have a cold and I still have ear ache. I ended up sleeping until early afternoon so I’ve only been up 8 hours and I’m knackered and definitely ready for bed.
