Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer . 

In my private life

What a week!

I know that I have a lot to catch up with and comments to reply to but this week has been super busy between work, hospital intervention for my mom, minor surgery for me and finally, a big cold that’s having me shivering with a runny nose!

My mother had to have a colonoscopy and gastroscopy this week. As she is 82 and lives alon, the doctor asked her to go to the hospital the day before the exam. So of course, after my work day I went to see her, walking 3 km in extreme cold to go from the station to the hospital!

Everything is fine with her so that’s great news!

The day after, it was my turn to have a minor surgery to the hospital. That went well too.

And since Friday I have a cold that is leaving me with a runny nose, backache and hot flashes replaced by uncontrollable shivers. Sigh.

I am very rarely sick so I am complaining nonstop LOL

But I had a COVID test, negative, so that’s a good old cold here. Nothing to do but drink lots of fluid, take paracetamol and wait it out.

As per usual, I am leaving you with two reels.

One where I imagine what it would be to be on the train and have my seatmate reading the same book as me.

And the second is my Owlcrate unboxing after I have waited for weeks to get my boxes!

  1. Oh wow when I saw the word hospital in the title at first I was very worried! Thank goodness it was a routine appointment for a test and a scheduled procedure. I’m glad it went well and that everyone is doing fine!

  2. I am glad you and your mom are doing well after your medical procedures. But, oh no! A cold! I am so sorry. My family and I have all been sick too. Take care and feel better!

  3. I am glad both yours and your mom hospital adventures went well! But sorry to hear about the cold… I caught a bad cold in November and I am not 100% back to normal yet… I hope you would be more lucky!!

  4. Glad to hear your mom is okay and your surgery went well. You might have the flu, Sophie. It’s been going around here like mad and we had a lot of patients at the hospital with it besides Covid patients. Hope you feel better!

  5. I am so sorry that you have been experiencing some chills, hope you feel better soon. Drink lots of Orange Juice. My allergies have been bad though with the inversion we get here in Utah, in the states. So yeah its not fun.

    I hope you have a wonderful week of gift wrapping and holiday cheer darling! XOXO

  6. Yikes, I was so happy to read you don’t have Covid, and that despite having a cold, your surgery went well. And I bet you are so happy for your mum too, that’s great news. Do take care and stay safe over the Christmas holidays.
