No Wales trip:(

We didn't go to Wales this morning after all. Mr Mog isn't too well and very tired and the long journey would have been much too much. He hasn't improved at all in energy levels or well being with these hormone tablets so it is off to see the doctor tomorrow to ask if there is any alternative(but I don't think there is) and if there is anything he can take along side the hormones to minimise the tiredness and the depression. Also to minimise the soreness to his breast area. He was so low this morning and typical Mr Mog worrying more over letting me down by not taking me to Wales than over how he felt. I feel so helpless, I am trying to remain cheery and lift his spirits but it is hard when he is so low. We ended up ringing my daughter and going to meet them in Bowness for lunch. That was a trip in itself despite being only 40minutes away. Bowness + summer holidays + lake windermere = h&ll. Not easy to find a space to park but we did eventually and had a gorgeous lunch in Aunty Vals, simple well cooked delicious food and not too expensive. He is a little better now thankfully.
We can go to Wales another time, we have a standing invite which is fabulous of Anne and Tony.
I'm thinking a couple of days out this week, maybe train journey along the coast to Workington for starters. We have a cheap day trip option here which allows unlimited train and bus travel for the day around the lakes plus a trip on lake Windermere. It would mean no driving which would be good for Mr Mog also.
So here I am still:)

Oh dear, so disappointing, Amber. Do hope you both have something positive which will lift you both very soon.

Take care, and thinking positive thoughts for you both.

Poo, I'm sorry :( But I'm glad you got to do something that had nice bits at least. And I'm glad Mr Mog was a little better at the end of it. Have you tried a wheat back for his chest and breast pain? If nothing else it is a comfort to have something warm and gently scented against you.

Oh, what a shame. Do hope the medics can find something to help and that you manage to get a day or two out this week.

{{{{hugs for both of you}}}}

Sorry to hear you can't get away. Probably best to leave it a couple of weeks anyway as the schools will then be back and it will be a lot less crowded and more peaceful. This cloud could have a silver lining after all :)

Hope the doctor can provide some more help for Mr Mog tomorrow.

I'm really sorry. Coping with the disappointments brought on by illness is a real bind. Glad you got out anyway, although I don't envy you the Lake District in August :)

Not trying to be funny - but would some sort of supportive undergarment help Mr Mog? Like a tight vest? Knowing how hormones can make female boobs hurt sometimes and that good bra can make the difference...
And I second the comment about a trip out after the school holidays end - much more peaceful!

Sorry you missed your trip, Amber, but happy to hear Mr Mog is feeling a little better. The train trip sounds like a great idea - let the train take the strain! ;-)
