Oh, lucky me. Firstly, I was (and still am) ill. And secondly, it was during the holidays. Such fun. Or maybe not…
To start with I spent a whole day of my precious 9 days off in bed and the rest of them with a temperature and a throbbing headache, add in a sore throat and a cough.Viola! One very high and rather grumpy teenager with a workshy pancreas. Oh the joys never stop!
Ill also means, yes you guessed it, high, high levels. I had just got an amazing (if I may say so myself) pie chart of mostly green levels annnnnnnd now it is gone. From all the high levels from being ill. I did add illness and took corrections but no, those levels weren’t budging at all.
Yesterday I had the worst nights sleep ever and now I am sitting here coughing away typing this, contemplating the joys of tomorrow at school. Yay! No, I’m being harsh – school really isn’t that bad. I was hoping to feel energised and refreshed after this holiday but as enjoyable as it has been I feel more like a slug than when I started it.
Nonetheless I did have fun and with a couple of painkillers I made the most of this holiday! I got up at 5 am to do a boot fair – we had lots to sell. Part of the reason behind going was a free Mr Whippy from my mum. Needless to say I was more than horrified when I queued for ages only to be told that the machine to create the lovely white stuff was broken. I had even allowed and given a shot for it. I had a nice lolly and a banana though! 🙂 What else did I do? My grandparents came for the day and I went shopping and out to dinner with my mum. We went to Cote brassiere. Mmmm that food was amazing! I also had quite a few nerf fights with my brother and went to see “Me before You.” It was probably the most amazing and inspiring film ever. I loved it! Cringe… Last but not least I ate a massive slice of cake with my dad and bought a new PE kit for school.
So, I found i week, that even being ill and having roller-coaster levels shouldn’t stop me from doing anything. I also realised that I didn’t need to feel 100% to have a great time. I made the most of it and on the whole I think I had an amazing week! I know, this is contrary to my first paragraph but hey ho, looking back makes me realise that I really have had a fun half term!
