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 208….Baby’s First Trip to Spetses!

Day 208 = August 3rd, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Where Have You Been” by Rihanna

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Turtle A Go-Go”

Anything to Note =

I am in Spetses!!!!!

It’s the baby’s first trip to Spetses!!!!!

Since I extended my trip in Greece I had to find time to come down to Spetses to see my brother as he found a job working at one of the bars down here and so coming down would be the only way to see him. I tried to find boat tickets but they were all full and then suddenly my sister-in-law’s sister and her husband and child decided to drive down for the weekend so hitched a ride down with them!

The driving was a little insane I have to say!!! And those curves around the mountains are a killer – more so being pregnant! Was having to fight the nausea with my usual trick – turning my head to the side of the turn!! It works!! But you look and feel ridiculous!!

Anyway, had to go all the way into town to find wifi to write this and it’s super late as got stuck seeing people and having dinner and then having a drink (sprite!!) out and only now got down to write this!!

And better go as people are waiting since I am only here until Sunday – so only a day and a half!! Although I am exhausted!!!

I am sad that Stuart is not with me though out here – wish you were here Stuart!!

Hey I always said that I would be at the Rendez Vous bar with baby in tow….well, I guess I was right!! And it’s not even born yet haha!!!!
