Today has been an interesting day. We’ve been a bit bad at missing my painkillers for a bit and today my pain levels got a bit out of control. Since it was obvious I wasn’t coping we decided to give me extra painkillers as I’m allowed to do so. The only problem with that is it makes me really dopey and out of it so I’ve done very little today. Johan was amused when I slurring my words and getting stuff wrong. Is like the worst parts of getting drunk without the good bits 😛 It did sort my pain levels out so it was worth it.
What has happened is lots of deliveries, so Johan was busy. I still need to go through all the boxes and check everything is there and then I’ll figure out how much wrapping paper I need to get. I did get the most awkward ones wrapped as I know Johan struggles with anything not a cuboid.
Once the worst of the dopeyness had eased off we watched telly. Johan and I watched more Hell’s Kitchen and in the middle Esther joined us to watch Doctor Who. The Doctor Who episode was excellent but also incredibly creepy and will probably give me nightmares. I’m really interested in what will happen next week now.
Hell’s Kitchen has been a lot of fun to watch with Johan. We’ve just got one episode of season 11 to watch left which we’re saving for tomorrow. It really amused me how Johan got increasingly annoyed with their pronunciation of risotto (the Americans pronounce it like re-zo-toe, we pronounce it more like ri-sot-toe). There’s also the difference in pronunciation of fillet but that’s easier to understand and cope with. Risotto is one of my favourite dishes so I’m glad it’s on the menu but only Gordon Ramsey says it right 😛 Of the two finalists of this season my favourite is Mary as she’s so nice.
I’ve no current plans for tomorrow. Will depend on how I’m feeling and things. I do want to make another long loom band chain to use for securing the pillow to my wheelchair so might start that if I’m up to it. I’m hoping my pain levels remain bearable now and we do a bit better at remembering my medication.
