Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Week 3

…of January is done! Can you actually believe it? My child is settling in well at school and in a few short weeks the term will be over! I am seriously struggling with dealing with the passage of time here…

Anyway. In a bit if an update, work continues to be busy. I was not on call last night, but I forgot to switch my phone off, and 2:30 am it rang – groan! Anyway, I have had some terrible sleep this week, I am seriously struggling with a cough; and while I felt a lot better yesterday, when I climbed intoned, it started again – I think I had a bit of a reaction to the chemically smell of our brand new mattress  (yes, we finally treated ourselves to one) and I had coughed and coughed and coughed until I almost threw up, and had struggled to sleep, so call at that hour was very unwelcome!

Like I said, Thandi is having a great time at school. She is a bit sad her buddies aren’t in her class, and she says break time is way too short to play with her friends, “Mom, break is so short, I just had time to eat my sandwich and then I had to go in again!” Charlie and  I are back on the PTA this year – I like to be involved, and it’s looking like it’ll be a good year.

My running update is interesting – so I got hold of a friend who is a sports physician in CT and he has said that some of the medication I am on could definitely have an impact on performance. Mid last year I was diagnosed with hypertension and started on medication, to my absolute horror! I am just so relieved that I haven’t imagined things, that I may not just be fat and unfit… Time will tell what we can do about it though. I have to do some tests and get the answers to him, but I want my cough to be better first.

The weekend awaits! Birthday parties and braais, runs and relaxation are on the cards. Sunday we head off to the neighbouring city to go and watch Johnny Clegg in his final tour – I cannot wait! It’s going to be awesome.

I must get my bloodwork done as well – I get dizzy every time I run!

Enjoy the weekend.

I was told I always get HB to school late (because they play in the morning before school…little did I know).
What works in our school: they get ten minutes before the outside break starts to eat, so they at least get something in.
I am no doctor here, lol. My mom has a cough as a side effect from her hypertension medication. The doctor told her that it does happen.
Enjoy Johnny Clegg!

Have a great weekend and very happy to hear school is going well. The first term always feels like it’s on fast forward so much to fit in to a very short time
