Out and About
Well hi there, just checking in once again. I've had that cooped up feeling the last few days, after that long in hospital, then sitting around at home, i'd had enough of the indoors and thought it was time to get up and about a little bit. Yesterday being wednesday, I woke up around 12pm and thought yep time to go, I had some chores to do, hit the bank for some bags so I could bag some coins up that I keep on saving up. Hit the chemist for ome more painkillers, gotta love nurafen plus at times.
First of all though we drove to kmart and parked as every Wedneday at the Penrith racecourse, they have a market. Now I had never been, but had been told about them and been the recipient of chocolates that had born bought there. I guess the markets fairly like paddies here in Sydney, though not quite as big. I basically just went to kill some time and get out and about, I did but 3 pairs of white socks for $2 and saw a mandarin tree, I thought would be nice to put in, not just any mandarin tree though, it was an imperial mandarine tree, the only type I will touch. By the time I had got back to the stand though, the guy had packed up for the day, as the market closes at about 1-1.30pm, so I missed out this week, probably better net week though, as I might be able to dig it in by then. After this and going to the plaza for the errands, I was feeling pretty sore and while mum did some shopping I leant on the trolley or sat down on a chair. Maybe overdid it a little again, but it was good to get out. I think broccoli is bad for me, the last few nights we have had it and at night I've been doubling over in pain with what appears to be blockages that go on for a few hours and the only way that has helped has been painkillers and in the morning it seemed to unblock and im more comfortable again. Today I had a morning snooze for a couple of hours, then read and played around. We walked a couple of blocks down to the supermarket and then tonight we had Ande and her daughters Monique and Poppy over for Tea as Dave is away with work in Adelaide, so it's been an ok day.
