My mum and I walked quite far down the high road as part of my 365 cardio in the hopes of a home-depot-esque shop called B & Q was still open. I mean we walked anyway, or my mum came with me to do some walking, but we did think that this store would be closed by the time we got there as shops close early in the UK and its Saturday.

Well, turns out it was open! And we had an hour till closing so we were on a mission to find black out blinds for the baby’s room and perhaps a shelf unit, and some bathroom taps for my mum to take to Greece. Oh and maybe a night light also for the baby. Things are expensive so we were hoping to find some good deals here!

Sadly there is no Ikea around here, and when she had gone to Ikea in Greece they had nothing anyway!!

This shop was huge and we actually managed to find some light blue roller black out blinds and a tap set on sale for my mum for Greece. We failed at the shelf and the night light but still got some things successfully, and it was down to the wire with checking out one minute before the shop closed!

Anyway, then we had to make that long walk back annoyingly.

And as we were walking my mum made some comment about how she had thought something was in her foot. And while in Greece she had found a piece of glass in the moving process in her foot. But she was not in any pain now, but had commented about that.

So we got home. Made dinner. Just watched a movie while we ate, and I looked over at my mum’s foot that was perched up and saw her heel was covered in red!

I was like – blood blood blood! Are you okay????

Lights came on and we were both looking at her foot for like half an hour to see what was wrong. I brought up earlier that she had made a comment about something in her foot, and the glass in her foot in Greece story she had mentioned while we walked home.

But we could not see anything. And there was no pain.

I checked my feet. Was it me that was bleeding?? Nothing.

It was so weird!

It looked like dry blood right there on her heel.

Then I looked at it again after half an hour and it appeared to me as quite purple in color suddenly. Almost too purple to be blood….

And then it hit me!!!

Earlier in the day I had had some Ribena to drink there in the kitchen so I must have spilled some on the floor and my mum must have stepped in it!!!

And sure enough it was Ribena!!! Haha!!!

It was just so odd that we were talking about foot pain, and glass in the foot, and blood while walking home and then hours later it looked like her foot was bleeding coincidentally. Ironically. Funny how that happens – when you talk about something and then it happens!

Even if it turned out to be Ribena!!

(For those who don’t know what Ribena is – its a black currant drink that is delicious so go out and get some!!!!!)


365 ONE: day 212…Mosquito Nightmare!

Day 212: August 7th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Mamacita Buena” by Claydee

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Mosquito Battle”

Anything to Note =

I had a fight with a mosquito at 2am this morning for over half an hour.

It was me versus this annoying effing mozzy.

I was watching TV and saw it fly past the TV light and I was like UGH!!

Then I got itchy as it had already bitten me in several places the mongoid!!!

So then it was on!! It was a battle to the death!!

Lights went on. I was focused on all the lights in the room, ready with my hands out to clap it to death!

I kept missing it though!! It was on the door at one point and I realized it was huge!! I wish I could have taken a photo of it as it was really big but weird looking, with an almost bright orange/yellow tinge to it – with long long legs! I picked up the iPad to take a photo but it had already left. It kept disappearing and then would be on me trying to bite me again! It flew into my face at one point!

That really pissed me off! I mean, I was seriously getting irritated.

I finally cornered it in the bathroom. I saw it fly in there so ran in and shut the door behind me. It’s a brighter and smaller space to deal with but it kept coming to attack me – like straight for me! It was insane! And so difficult to keep track of!

Finally I clapped out in front randomly as I saw it coming and got the mofo!!

I had blood all over my hands as it was obviously full of MY blood!!

But how satisfying to kill it! I even made a noise when I got it – probably inspired by all the Olympics I’ve been watching haha!! I let out a loud groan of success when I got it!! You know, like they do when they throw the shot put or discus or hammer throw haha!! 🙂

It’s 43 degrees here in Athens, which is ridiculous, like over 108 degrees Fahrenheit or something (don’t quote me on that as have no idea!!) – but no wonder there are so many mofo mozzies flying about. They are everywhere in this heat and so lethal!!
