Documenting not dying since October 2013.

The 30th & 1st; A less depressing day, for sure.

The 30th of September.  A less depressing day, for sure. I was at the chiropractor this morning which I definitely needed because I'd strained my neck at the gym. It now keeps clunking every time I look to the left, so I'm hoping it settles while I'm asleep tonight. 

I had to go out again this afternoon for renal clinic, but until then, I worked on another hat for Christine using the wool I bought on Monday. I might give her both and see which one she likes best, or she can just keep both. I got the majority of it done before we left at about half past two, then we arrived at the QE and we ended up having to pull over in the car so I could go in the wheelchair to my appointment while Mommy parked as there were no immediately visible spaces. 

She met me in the waiting room and we sat there for over an hour before being called in. We were prepared for this and had reading material, but a lady next to us was livid even though she was not new and ought to have been used to it. Nothing much to report from Dr. Hewins. He's added Doxasozin to go with the Irbesartan, and apparently my kidneys are slightly underperforming so there's a lot of protein in my urine but he's not very concerned just yesign

The 1st of October. 

Busy day! I was up earlier than I had expected to be after a look at my diary showed me that my hair appointment this morning was an hour earlier than I thought! I wanted a total change, some drastic colour, so I showed James some pictures of autumn leaves to use as inspiration and we came up with a plan. I was hunched over Vogue (I have to, to be able to read it without my glasses) when I saw a small dog at my feet! A lady had brought her Yorkshire Terrier with her and was sat on the other side of the mirror to me so I gave it a little pet. Somebody else came in with a baby too, so I was having a great day. I had a little chop from Michaela, tidying up the sides, back and fringe, and I am to make Blossom a flower hat. 

Afterwards, we had a trip into Sutton to get some micellar water and cotton wool pads, then we went to the sorting office to pick up a parcel we missed yesterday. 

We came home for lunch, then went back out into town because I'd seen a dress on the Topshop app that I wanted to get, but after looking around the main shop and the Selfridges one, we couldn't see it anywhere. I decided to keep looking elsewhere for a substitute and actually found a really good one in Oasis which I purchased before we came home again. 

This evening I have wrapped Christine's presents which was really fiddly because they were of no real shape. I hate doing untidy wrapping. 

The 4th & 5th; I feel like my breathing is getting worse.

The 28th & 29th; The most monumentally shit of days.
