Today was a funny old day. I was so productive in the morning; getting washing done, making progress with business bits n bobs and feeling great about it, then out of nowhere extreme nausea came and led to me emptying my stomach contents in to the toilet (you’re welcome!). I then proceeded to feel nauseous all afternoon until I got a migraine in the evening and ended up in bed at 9pm.

I had a pretty easy going first trimester; just tiredness and nausea with a few small headaches in the recent weeks, but I was never actually sick, and wonderfully, eating helps get rid of my nausea! Boy am I thankful that every day wasn’t like today! I’m still not sure what it was…a random short stomach bug, or extreme “morning” sickness…who knows, just as long as it doesn’t become a regular thing in the second trimester.

This poor guy came home to a basket full of damp washing waiting to be hung, a kitchen still full of dishes, and no prospects of dinner in the fridge. He sat with me on the sofa until hunger got the best of him, then he hid in the kitchen to eat his dinner because the smell was too much for my nausea, and once I went to bed he stayed up to do the dishes and hang the washing. He’s a keeper, I’m glad he’s mine forever!

Iain’s in town again! Which meant tidying the flat again…and then a delicious dinner at Maggie’s Grill. Couldn’t believe that was the first time we had taken Iain to Maggie’s, from nearly a year of him coming to stay with us before joining his ship. It was most definitely a hit! Iain’s ship is in dry dock in Aberdeen for the next few weeks so we’ll be enjoying his company more often this month, and what’s even more exciting (sorry, Iain) is his fiance, Aaltsje, is able to come over from Lewis for a visit during this trip too! We’ve waited a whole year for this! So, keep your eyes peeled, maybe in a couple of weeks time you’ll be seeing a pretty, Frisian girl on the blog instead of these mugs.
