Weekly Life Update: Paris & Being Unwell

© abieelucas 2015
Hey guys! It's the end of the week so it's time for my weekly life update. I wasn't able to write one last week of course because I was in beautiful Paris! We left on the Friday evening, stayed in London overnight and took the Eurostar to Paris Saturday morning. It really surprised me how fast it was to get there! We left Paris on Monday evening and ended up getting home in the early hours of Tuesday around 1-2am after some long delays. I will go into more depth in my Paris post which will be up in the next few days so look out for that! I think it should be up on Tuesday or Wednesday. I have so many photos to show you guys! If you want to take a look at them now then head on over to my instagram @abieelucas and give me a follow I have loads of pics on there.

So this week I had my first day back at my old job; considering I have been off for a month it was all like second nature to me so I hadn't forgotten anything. I actually had to train newbies on my first day back! I am glad to be back in a place I know well but I am still looking to find a job that is more fitting with what I want to do. For example beauty, fashion or social media related. I actually got in contact with etailPR which some of you bloggers will know about and they are looking for interns; however they are based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire which would be over 1hr40m commute for me every morning so unfortunately I had to forget about that idea. The dream would be for me to be a full time blogger! That is my biggest life goal and I work so hard on it that I'm hoping that it will all pay off one day and I will be able to make a living from it. Wish me luck.

For the past few days, particularly yesterday I've been feeling incredibly unwell. I've been having some of the worst stomach aches I've ever had. In fact some of them made me double over in pain it was that excruciating. They came and went until yesterday I began getting shivers and I was freezing cold and felt so nauseous. I was on my own so I had no choice but to call the NHS 111 line to see what I should do. The lady on the phone booked me an appointment at my nearest hospital and I managed to drive there okay. I had a bit of a walk in the fresh air which made me feel slightly better and the doctor examined me. Turns out he thinks I have a kidney infection - which was actually a surprise to me. I'm being treated for that and today I am feeling a little better but not 100% yet. The doctor did also tell me that if the pain got any worse I must go straight to A&E as he thinks it could be appendicitis - which is actually what I thought it was in the first place; but I am feeling a little better now so I don't think it is anymore. I actually went to a small house party last night and didn't feel like drinking - that's how you know I'm ill.

So that's pretty much it, it wasn't a very exciting few days after my return from Paris but hopefully next week will be better and that I won't be ill. Thanks so much for reading guys, your support means the absolute world to me. See you in my next one!
