Well what turned out to be a weekly update has disappeared, my last post of Diary Of A Menopausal Mum was back in February, you can catch up on my last post here. So here is my latest in the diary of a menopausal Mum – week I have no idea.
Catch Up From My Last Post
In my last post C had not long been out of hospital with abdominal pains. She still has them and they are no better, we are having appointments by phone with her new Consultant at the moment. We were due a CT scan last week but for safety we cancelled this, which was a hard decision. So just waiting on a new scan date to come through.
Lets Talk About The Madness Going On
For a long time I have been bulk buying toilet rolls. I purchase through Amazon and have a repeat order every few months. My family and fiends all laugh at me when this big package arrives. Who was having the last laugh when everyone started panic buying and you could not get loo rolls, while I had received a delivery about two weeks before all the panic started. Queue smug mode . My family was pleased for my bulk ordering then haha.
I will say I only started doing it as I was fed up with nearly running out all the time.
What was going on with everyone panic buying every single item in shops. The worst thing is the amount of waste that it produced, to me and I am sorry if I upset anyone saying this. It was pure greed and selfishness. I am so glad that supermarkets are now stepping down on the amounts people can buy so we all have a chance of getting the food we need to feed our families.
This is where you see what a menopausal woman is like, as I tried to do a food shop. With a child who is ill and can only eat certain things it made my job of trying to find food a lot harder. If you had seen me you would have seen me ranting to myself looking like a mad woman.
A Huge Thank You
We need to all say thank you to those who are carrying on day and night for us.
- The NHS staff
- The shop workers
- The public transport workers and cab drivers getting these staff to work
- Everyone else who is out there working hard
I have heard harrowing stories of how these workers have been treated, so from me at StressedMum a huge thank you for all you are doing.
Instead Of Going Out
As we are all stuck in, I am giving myself some tlc. I have been using some lovely new face products (post coming soon). I am also giving my nails a break from nail varnish. I have had this nail product in for a long time. But as you have to give your nails 28 days I have never had chance to leave my nails that long without putting varnish on.
I am also loving nice long soaks in the bath, which is helping my bad back. I have no idea what I have done to it, but am keeping my family amused with their jokes of getting old, and various other comments.
If all else fails the lovely Asha at Yeah Lifestyle has the perfect idea with her review of Bosford Rose Premium Gin, which will brighten anyones day.
How are you all coping? Just remember it will be over one day x
