Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 25, 2017

My Life Goal, ze Weight

A huge increase this week however I’m taking it all on the nose; my period has started…the hope that the coil would potentially stop my periods hasn’t materialised and am feeling very bloated in the process so am sure the weight will hopefully come down next week.  Would love to hear about your experiences with the coil…my hair has also started to fall out in clumps as well and I have lumps all over my boobies and underarms for a few days every 10 days or so…anyone else suffered from these symptoms with the coil?

Shake Your Booty

I managed to do some walking on the treadmill until it got all a bit too hot in England…G ended up buying us an air conditioning unit…best decision ever!  Then I thought I would try doing kettle bells on Friday morning and have been in pain ever since…big mistake.

What I’m Up Too…

So I went for a little tiki tour to Northamptonshire to wander around the Coton Manor Gardens (blog post will be published on Tuesday and I have a few more scheduled…it feels so weird to see scheduled posts!)…and managed to take the wrong exit from a round about however got to see this cute little pub from 1620 so a total silver lining for my wrong turn…

…and how cute are these little houses.

I’d forgotten how pretty Northamptonshire really is!

I’m back in the office tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it but I’m only allowed to work 4 hours a day as per the instructions from the company doctor. It will be lovely to escape the house and to see a some of my work friends again.

I’ve managed to book a few flights to Europe for August and September so I can see my folks and sister as they travel around Europe so that should be fun.  I’m flying Wizz Air and somehow my profile is set to a male and I can’t change it…I dread to think how much this is going to cost me to change.

G and I need to use up a British Airways companion voucher before October and we are struggling to work out where to go…we know Europe isn’t a great use of the companion ticket however we have another 3 sitting against our profiles to use at a later date so we have decided to burn it on a flight within Europe or maybe North Africa.  So we are thinking of a trip somewhere in Europe…any suggestions?  I was thinking of Rhodes however struggling to find seats!

After my morning visit to the little chocolate box village of Clare, my next pit stop was exploring Cavendish which was only a short drive away…like less than 10 minutes…barley enough time for a boogie in the car.  If you’ve seen photos of Suffolk then you’ve probably seen the iconic photo of Cavendish…the large village green, the pink cottage and the church behind.

^^If not, now you have!

I parked in front of a house for sale…I call this omen, I may have instantly downloaded a property app to my phone and stalked the inside of the house…G later talked some sense into me about how long my commute would be to Luton…honestly he can be such a spoilsport!  A girl can dream right?!?

I really loved this house, the owners exited the house as I was photographing their front door…caught in the act, doh!  They thought it was hilarious, I have no shame whatsoever (including when asked what was so good about their front door…I tried to explain door porn, he just didn’t get it!) and we had a chat for a bit about their home…apparently I could have it as it was a noose around their neck.

Exploring Cavendish had worked up a sweat as it was super photogenic, my finger needed a rest and a cold drink…warm spring days are a blessing…so I popped inside a little antique shop come tea room…

Cavendish…if I wrote a post of my favourite 10 Chocolate Box Villages in England…you would be on the list.

Travel Tips for Exploring Cavendish, Suffolk

  • It’s an easy drive from Bury St EdmundsLavenham or Clare and parking is a breeze, just find a spot on the road.
  • There are a few pubs dotted around the village if you are peckish or you can visit the Cavendish Antiques & Tea Rooms (unfortunately they don’t have gluten free options).
  • The Green at Cavendish would be picture perfect spot for a picnic
  • It’s pretty flat in Cavendish and there isn’t a huge amount of places to walk to so you could get away with pretty shoes…but make them comfortable!
  • Why not check out my Suffolk Weekend Itinerary if you are planning to visit this neck of the woods.

“Time did not compose her” – Jane Austen, Emma

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 24, 2017

My Life Goal, ze Weight

A slight increase which I don’t mind about; I’m eating more which is good thing as it gives me more energy.

Shake Your Booty

I’m feeling a tad more active with each day; I managed to do 20 minutes of yoga on Friday and 20 minutes walking on the treadmill yesterday…slowly…but it was good to be able to get moving again even if it was slowly.

What I’m Up Too…

I went back to work on Tuesday after over a month off, I was excited to be going back to work (weirdo I know!)…first stop was seeing the company doctor who then recommended I work from home for the next two weeks doing half days…I’m sick of our house at the moment so I felt like I was getting banished back to my little tower…but then realised that driving and work was just going to wear me out pronto…which it did…along with suffering from a total lack of concentration.  I’ll get there, baby steps and realising what I am currently capable of which isn’t a lot!

I had a blog post which I thought I had scheduled to go out during the week…it was finished but I had forgotten to schedule it…doh…concentration levels are appalling.

Work then told me to have Friday off as part of my phased return…which was then promptly used to get a MOT for my car which was due *coughs* in April…seriously, where was my letter to remind me!  Dropped the car off, gave him my keys…walked out of the workshop…walked back in a minute later after realising my house keys were on the keyring…such a wally with a capital W!

G’s mum took me out the yesterday afternoon to visit a pretty little garden in Silsoe, Bedfordshire…it was a thatched cottage with the most beautiful little garden which was open as part of the National Garden Scheme which is a charity run event that raises money for various nursing charities and it’s celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this year…you can check out what gardens are open in your area here

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 24, 2017

…and most will have cakes to snack on as well…pretty roses, gluten free cake and a lady playing a harp in the garden…all very English I must say!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 24, 2017

^^My Boden dress that matched the floral tablecloth rather well and let me fit in a piece of gluten free cake with ease!

Anyway enough of my babbling…time for lunch.

“It was a delightful visit; perfect, in being much too short.” – Jane Austen, Emma

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 23, 2017

My Life Goal, ze Weight

Another decrease of the old weight which I’m not complaining out…my weight was even lower again late last week…unfortunately my GP is now worried about why I’m losing so much weight so quickly, apparently it is to much even after an operation.

Shake Your Booty

No exercise at all…maybe this week…maybe not.

What I’m Up Too…

Obviously I’m late with my weekly diary blog post…I didn’t lose any sleep over it!

Last year was shit and writing a blog post just didn’t come naturally to me so I parked the blog bar my weekly diary posts (these are posts I write for myself) and a few travel posts in between when I felt inspired which didn’t happen often…the same thing has happened in 2017.

The past few mornings I’ve woken up actually feeling refreshed…and that’s not a word I use often…I normally wake up feeling nauseous and suffering from serious brain fog and that’s how I tackle the day in that state…needless to say I take a no prisoners approach to my day.

This week I’ve learnt what is causing the constant nausea…my colon…once you know, things get a little less stressful and I’m thankful that my colon and I are going to be looked after by a great team at St Marks Hospital in London going forward that specialise in genetic colon diseases.  I get to have another colonoscopy very soon…two in a year…unfortunately I am showing colon cancer symptoms again.

Health is so important and when it starts slipping away you do lose part of yourself…I lost my confidence as my periods were so heavy I couldn’t live my life the way I wanted to anymore…2 operations in 2017 later and I’m free of fibroids; I thought I was going crazy as GP’s kept telling me things were all in my head which they weren’t and I lost my ability to really give a shit about people and life in general and that’s a really horrible feeling to have…nothing worse than disliking people as their life looks just to “easy” from the outside.

Tomorrow I am back to work after over a month off on sick leave…it’s a weird feeling to think I’m going back to work now…I don’t feel like I’ve had over 4 weeks off but I have…it feels like I have blinked and lost a few weeks somewhere.

Moral of the Story – Health is Wealth!

Anyway enough of my babbling…time for dinner.
