Last week, after my parents went home , I had a list of what I needed/ wanted to do.
Complete a TEFL assignment
Start my Portuguese practise
Meet a friend and go for a swim
Get back into my creative work -do some calligraphy , finish a painting, and make some jewellery
Continue learning how to make an on-line shop
Start some regular exercise again
But sometimes things just come along and say ” I don’t think so ! ”
That’s what happened this week.
I got sick… with a kidney infection
So My plans changed .
Spent hours visiting my bathroom
Drank gallons of water
Cuddled up with a hot water bottle
Visited the doctor
Chewed on anti biotics and painkillers
Experimented with ways to stop cold sores taking over my face …Earl Grey tea, aguadente , toothpaste and honey have been tried !
Avoided the sun ( not easy when its 32 degrees & sunny)
Towards the end of the week I started to get a few things done. I managed to make a Polymer clay cane ( see my craftinginportugal blog ) started my TEFL assignment, and went for a short morning walk, (where I felt like Bambi, on new legs)
Although It has not been the best week, It has been a good lesson in acceptance, and letting go of things you can not change.
I am now finally feeling my old self again, and so I hope to share my photos of a much more interesting week next week!
