Today Looks Like This…

17 Comments 23 June 2011

After a few days off work sick, and hoping I’d just get better, I finally realised I wasn’t so I bit the bullet and went to see the doctor… Now as a nurse myself (not a “real nurse” I’m a psychiatric nurse so I can’t tell you about your dodgy knee or your Mum’s sciatica), I hate going to the GP, especially for anything I suspect might be “viral”, ie, no point giving me antibiotics as it just clears up on its own etc. But after four days off, I wasn’t feeling better, in fact if anything I was feeling worse…

One GP appointment later I have been given a load of antibiotics for a chest infection and signed off from work for a few more day… So my day looks like it’s going to be spent on the couch under a duvet, with trash mags, a book (the rather excellend “One Day” by David Nicholls – which I’ll be reviewing), and my latest film from LoveFilm (The Killer Inside Me – I’m not in a RomCom mood right now… although I do want to see Bridesmaids!)

I also have these two monkeys to keep me company…

Renfield making herself comfortable on my lap...

Don’t be fooled by that innocent look on her face by the way. About twenty seconds after I took that snap she was cleaning her unmentionables with a very smug look on her face…

Coco-Pops hiding under the washing stand...

For some reason Coco wasn’t feeling very photogenic today. She loves sitting uder the washing waiting to pounce on Ren…

How’s your day looking?

  1. When you’re sick, you can actually do what the working people are dreaming about (which is what you described here). Excepted you hurt, you can’t breath, and you need a nap every 2 hours. Life is a b!sh on that one ;-)
    Get some rest and feel better soon!

    Do I need to try and read that book again because I got about four chapters in and nearly died of boredom…but I know its highly regarded…

    • Jen (Mizz Worthy) says:

      The first few chapters were a bit wierd I agree – and the male character is difficult to like, but I think it gets better as you read on… xxx

    grr the programme made me lost my reply. boo.
    ‘ about your dodgy knee or your Mum’s sciatica ‘ –> haha.
    monkeys? these cats are so good value for money! they double up as furbabies and monkeys. ha xx

    • Jen (Mizz Worthy) says:

      Hehe – I call Renfield my monkey as she is usually up to no good, Coco is a furbaby – she is a big fat cushion with legs but so gentle and sweet.

    Lovely cats Jen, get well soon xx

  5. Kate & Zena says:

    Get well soon, Jen!

    It looks like your kitties are taking good care of you though! Zena doesn’t like to care of her people much. She decides when she’ll “take care” of her people. It normally comes down to whoever has the treats, gets the attention! She’s the one who is needy, not us!

    I don’t know if you know this, but petting your pets releases serotonin (the happy chemical) which has been shown to help people get better faster! So, pet your kitties more because I have a feeling your one of those people who don’t like to be bedridden (I hate being in bed all day. I need to move.)

    P.S. WordPress seems to like not posting my comments. Then, when I go to post it again, it says, “Duplicate comment detected.” Are you receiving my comments, even if they aren’t being seen on the site? (Curiosity is peaked.)

    • Jen (Mizz Worthy) says:

      Hi Kate – I have to put comments on approval so I don’t get any spam or porn links or anything on here – you’d be amazed at some of the stuff I’ve had to block!
      I think all pets can be a bit “out for themselves” – my cats are no exception, I’m just wrapped around their little paws!
      I do feel better after havinga cuddle with them though, so the serotonin must be working its wonders! xxx

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Oh yea, I know what you mean. Zena has my dad wrapped around her little paws like no other dog. What other dog has a custom-made pea coat (“No, Daddy, I won’t go out in the cold. I mean, I will, but I’ll come in shivering and then you’ll have to baby me with blankeys.”) AND a rain coat (“Me? Go out in the rain? You have to be joking! I am far too regal to get my fur wet.”)? Oh yea, I have one spoiled little dog.

    Your cats are so cute :) I’m a sucker for black cats with white paws and attitude to match :)

    I hope you feel better soon! :)

    Hi jen,

    Hope you feel better now. I have been ill all this week and still at work. Don’t feel like I can take the time off as just had a week’s holiday so I’m braving it out.

    I don’t think I’m as ill as you though – obv as I wouldn’t be in work.

    I know what the above comment means though, it’s no fun really being off work when you feel like rubbish:( I hope the antibots kick in soon and you get back on your feet soon.

    Lauren

    • Jen (Mizz Worthy) says:

      Hey Lauren, thanks so much for the lovely comment. Unfortunately the first set of antibiotics didn’t work, so I had to go back to the doctor’s again yesterday and was prescribed a different lot of tablets, and signed off sick for another week, which is very dull. I’m missing my job and my colleagues – at least I appreciate my job now! x
