Attack of the Crohn's!
Sounds like a 70's sci-fi movie, huh?
It isn't, unfortunately – but it has been the reason I've been a little bit quiet this week on DeafinitelyGirly.com.
You see, after forgetting to edit my diet, and indulging in all the wrong things at a Pot Luck Day at work, I ended up losing 3 days of eating and 3 days of sleep, too.
I knew things were bad when I had to go and have a sleep in a cupboard at work. I lay down in a corner and slept for a full hour... on the floor!
Delightful life I'm leading.
What upset me the most is how many fun things I have missed out on this week – a late night at the National Portrait Gallery, a Superdrug VIP night, and London Aunt's birthday party.
I was actually at the latter, but wasn't really the life and soul... and watched three courses of delicious food pass under my nose without being able to eat a morsel!
So when it came to being Thankful this Friday, I was kinda stuck for ideas – I mean, should I be thankful that I keep missing fun social events, that I got 2 hours sleep on Wednesday night, or...
And then I stopped and thought about all the things that made my life bearable over the last few days and have decided to be thankful for them. They are:
London Aunt! whoop!
Blanco and Mrs Blanco
My new sofa and Orla Kiely blanket
Ma and Pa's fantastic advice
Crap TV recorded on my digibox
Texts from lovely friends
I am thankful for all of the above and more – without them, I would have gone stir crazy.
So, it really is a very thankful Friday after all.
