The Diary Of A Menopausal Mum / Reviews

Diary Of A Menopausal Mum – 09/07/2021

Yay we made it to Friday again, and survived another week. So how has your week been hopefully good and not full of drama.

Here I am catching up from last week, plus anything new that has been happening. Also this week StressedMum turn 6 you can see how my journey started here.

Last week, I was saying how finally I was going to get my broken tooth, which broke during lockdown 1 removed.  Well, as I was getting myself ready to leave to go to the dentist, I had to cancel.  So am rebooked and going again today.

I am really not looking forward to it, and know I will be in a lot of pain after.  But I will also be glad to finally get it removed as trust me having half a front tooth is not fun.  All I can say is thank god for the face masks we have been wearing.


This picture is just how I have been this past week, I have been totally stressed out.  We share a house with my parents which works great as not only do I have C, I also am doing more and more for my parents.  It is also better for me as I do not have to worry about them constantly.  But I swear they think I have nothing better to do than deal with minor things for them.

I try to tell them I am busy working, or helping my husband with something (I also help with his business), or of course dealing with C, before I even get a minute to myself.


On top of that I have been sneezing a lot more and have been trying xlear, which is a natural sinus rinse, and found it has been helping me.  Not sure if it is an allergy to something or hayfever as never really suffered before.

I have managed to get C into the kitchen this week and we have made our banana bread, it is so quick and easy to make.  We love it and luckily C can eat it as is soft enough for her.

I can not go without mentioning the football.  I am not a football fan but even I got tense watching the game the other night.  Good luck boys.

    Sorry to hear about your continuing dental problems. having dental surgery is not fun. Try to find pain killers that have codeine, as that helps tooth pain better than paracetamol or ibuprophen.

    I hope that getting your tooth out will help loads, and maybe that will take away some of the stress.
