lizziec: (granny's garden bee)
I mentioned here that Phil and I spent hours cleaning out the spare room at mum's place so that I could have my own space here. The bed arrived on Saturday and is now all together and covered with bed clothes. I brought some things back from Canterbury this morning to make it more my own space, so I thought I would post the pictures of how it looks now (please excuse the quality, I used my phone camera).

I'm still trying to think of ways to improve the walls. Maybe I need some postcards or something to stick up?

Pictures of my little corner of mum's house. Cut to save your friends page :) )

In other news, still waiting to hear when the MRI will be. I also called mum's council this morning and they're sending forms to register for postal voting, then I called my council who are sending me forms for both a postal and a proxy vote so I can pick which one I want to use. Then I'm hopefully covered should I be here on election day.

It's been a bad day for both mum and me today. She's had the nausea and vomiting and lack of energy that she's been getting frequently from what we now know is the tumour (though I don't know if it's the Primary, the Secondary or both making her like that), so she's spent most of the day asleep (and getting the sweats from the tramadol which the hospital gave her for the pain, which is just the crown on feeling crappy anyway, I would imagine).

On top of that, the hospital have yet to call and tell us when the MRI is going to be, so there's a fair bit of sitting around twiddling thumbs and I'm really struggling with that. When mum's downstairs, as she is a lot, because it's easier for her to breathe and whatnot when sitting in a comfy chair down there than in bed up here, she has the tv on to what she wants, and has the volume up fairly loud, so as a general rule I'm happier elsewhere. In addition, I want my own space very much and so because of all of these factors I've been hiding out in my room (who'd have thought that at 26 and married I would be saying that again?) most of today. I ache from sitting on a bed or a floor all day.

It's also Monday, so I'm furthest away from being home again, and even though it's a short week as far as being away from Ben is concerned, I miss him, and it feels like a very long time before I see him again. I miss our flat, I miss our gerbils, I miss home cooking, I miss our companionable silences.

I'm sorry for the whining, I truly am. I'm very low, mood-wise right now and I just need to vent before it gets too much.

On the upside, I did the computery part of a tesco order for mum (she told me what was needed and I did the typing and ordering of the things), so at least one good thing has been achieved today. And I just remembered that I also called about postal voting, so I suppose that's two. And hopefully tomorrow will be better.
