It's a week today since I had my last dose of chemotherapy and apart from the really tender, sore mouth and the dreadful digestive problems I am having, I feel much better today!
Last round of chemo, I was wiped out for nearly two weeks but this time I seem to have recovered alot quicker. However, what do I do when I feel this way? Yes, I jump right in with both feet and over do things!
I bundled the children off to my mums house for an overnight stay, their first time ever with her. She has some rescue chickens and they enjoyed harvesting the eggs, washing them then eating them for breakfast this morning. The "jobs" she has lined up for the boys are things like feeding the wild birds of which there are many where she lives; sparrows, jays, woodpeckers, robins, thrush, starlings to name but a few. There is nettle clearing to be done in the orchard and pruning, always pruning! Oh, mum found a dead bird and they have a funeral to arrange! All good fun for my boys. Hopefully, I will have my bed to myself tonight!
So once my boys were off on their adventure, I went off on mine!
I left Dave Decorator painting the outside of our house and went for the most beautiful walk with the dogs; Pickles, Wilbur and Poppy. We ended up in Darland Woods which has been newly cordoned off. Some people would complain about this but having walked these woods for 15 years, I am quite glad because it reduces the amount of people using them and I can enjoy the natural beauty with my dogs without hassle.
The golf course was busy today so we decided to remain within the woods then cut across the footpath. I met Dave Golf, the groundsman and had a lovely chat with him. When I am grooming, I clip and bath his cocker spaniel, Maisy.
The walk across the course was glorious. The sun shone down on us and the dogs ran through the long grass. Heaven!
I was just deciding whether to cross Chester Road into the fields there with the dogs when that sudden wall of chemo tiredness over came me and I decided that enough was enough, time for home.
It was lovely to walk amongst nature and it was lovely to see familiar faces in Dave Golf and W the bus driver amongst others.
My dogs and I have returned home to rest but satisfied that we have had our own splendid adventure....
