Project 365 2015: Week 7

Last week, I mainly moaned about being cold. This week, things have improved slightly weather-wise, at least. In myself, I’ve felt tired, stressed and unhappy, which I’m blaming on the nasty eye infection I’ve had for the last six weeks.

Here’s our week in pictures.

Day 39 – Sunday 8th February – after the usual cold, cloudy morning at rugby, something amazing happened – the sun came out! This sky is most definitely blue.

Day 40 – Monday 9th February – this is my view most of the time. I sit at my desk in the spare room and look at the magnolia tree outside the window. Again, it was nice to see a bit of sunlight and blue sky for a change.

Day 41 – Tuesday 10th February – my mum knitted this jumper for my daughter’s beloved Teddy.

Day 42 – Wednesday 11th February – weirdo that I am, I quite like an ugly selfie. But, even for me, it took a lot of bravery to include this one. I have a nasty eye infection in both eyes (this photo doesn’t do it justice at all) and my acne has got out of control.

Day 43 – Thursday 12th February – emergency hospital appointment for my eye infection. It has a name now – blepharitis – and a course of treatment, which is going to take a long time.

Day 44 – Friday 13th February – the kids have been doing circus skills at school all this week and today I went to school to see them perform. That’s my girl on the tightrope!

Day 45 – Saturday 14th February – we do celebrate Valentine’s Day, but we don’t go over the top. This is my card to my husband – I don’t like either slushy cards or funny/ rude cards, so that leaves me with very little choice!

    • Thanks very much! I’m surprised how much the damn eye infection has taken out of me – I’m not sure if it’s physical or psychological, but I’m feeling quite drained by it. The endless doctor’s appointments for it don’t help! I love the Teddy jumper too! 🙂 x

  7. aargh, blepharitis – I’m prone to that. Annoying, but I manage to keep it at bay these days by having occasional breaks from my contact lenses and by using eyelid cleansing wipes every day. Hope you feel better soon!

    • That’s good to know you manage to keep it under control. I need to track down those eyelid cleansing wipes!

  15. Oh you poor thing, I hate the germs and nasties around at this time of year. I hope that your acne isn’t too painful, I’ve got some along my jaw and chin which are so painful.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    • Thanks very much! Acne can be so painful, although this is mainly sore and dry, due to the effects of the roaccutane.
