I've recovered from tonsillitis, so it was back to work this morning - after I had been cleared by the Doctor.
Will admit that I wanted a longer than 2 week break from work - but that was not quite how I envisioned spending my time. Truly a cruddy and painful week/time. Thankfully, I only get tonsillitis every couple of years.
Neale looked after me most excellently though..
I have another appt with Dr Mundae next week - my blood pressure was still high, so he was going to up my medication - until I said I wasn't taking any, so have been prescribed another hypertensive and will get checked again next week to see how I'm going with that one. Fun - not!
Unfortunately, last week turned rotten for the family - my BIL, after not being in contact with my FIL on Thursday at all and unable to be contacted, Neale went around to his flat and broke in - to discover that he had passed away. So, so sad, as Rod was only 61 - so lots of arrangements have been made and still to be made. The funeral is on Wednesday, so I've got another couple of days off work this week.
STRATFORD, Rodney (Rod;
Passed away peacefully at home, on 20 September, 2012.
Aged 61 years
Much loved son of Alf and Shirley (dec). Loved brother of Rose-Marie
(dec), and Neale, brother-in-law of Jenny. Uncle of Thomas, Morgan,
Hadden and Laura.
Forever in our thoughts
Reunited with his Mum
Those horrible people at BMV got me again last week - in my sleep deprived, drugged out brain I managed to nearly clean up my ''wishlist'' and have 15 more patterns on their way to me. According to the tracking no. several days ago they were in Chicago!
Work wise - they saved me heaps to do/sort out. First thing tomorrow, I've got to get a payroll done and all the invoicing that goes with it and then will sort out the debtor's reports - aarrgghh!
Finally finished watching season 1 of Mad Men - actually, I stated from the start again and watched the whole season in one go. It was very good.
Time for bed - 6-40am comes around all too soon.
