Wednesday we went to the blood centre to donate blood. This, I’m ashamed to admit, was my first time donating. Squidge was a big hit there! While I was giving blood Wallywoo was supposed to be watching her. Well once the nurses got a hold of her they weren’t giving her back!! So he made out pretty well. The nurses took his child and would occasionally check on him to see if he was alright, did he need more tea? Cookies?? I had filled out the forms, donated about a pint of blood, had my juice and cookies and off we went. I had pretty normal day, I didn’t feel faint and all was well.
I’m trying to teach myself how to knit and it is NOT going well. On Wednesday nights there is a knitting circle at the haberdashery here so I thought I would go and get some tips/help. All was well, the woman was trying to show me how to knit. I suddenly became very hot and a bit dizzy. So I sat down. Next thing I know I’ve broken out in a cold sweat and feel like I’m going to seriously faint. I call Wallywoo to come pick me up and I leave the shop. I was sooo embarrassed. I had never been to a knitting circle and the first time I go I FAINT!! Who the hell faints! I was a bit surprised that giving blood would knock on my ass!! I gave blood at 11 am and I didn’t start to feel faint until 7:30!! I got home and ate something and felt a little better. I kept asking him if he was cold and he wasn’t. Wallywoo said I was ice cold and I was!! I was in bed by 9pm and slept until 8 the next morning. I felt much better.
