Here is my Day in the Life as chosen by Claire.

8.45am Jump awake with fright for unknown reason. After a bad sleep last night, I try to get some more rest.

9.45am Alarm goes off. Press snooze button.

9.55am Alarm goes off. Get up and wander about the house, getting myself a cup of fruit tea and trying to waken up.

10.05am Phone my sister to find out how she’s doing. Arrange to go and visit her in the afternoon.

10.15-12.10pm Feeling rather ill today, I decide to take it slowly. Spend the remainder of the morning showering, checking email, chatting on MSN and getting some housework done. I treat myself to half hour on Animal Crossing – YAY I won the Flower Fest and got a trophy.

12.15pm Phone a contact for my research work and am delighted he agrees to let me interview him straight away. He’s very helpful and interesting which always helps.

12.50pm Heat up burger (Lee made amazing homemade burgers yesterday) in oven and go to tidy some clean clothes away.

1pm Straighten hair. Now my hair is short it takes hardly any time. GHDs- I still love you. Put on makeup.

1.10pm Eat burger. Yummy!

1.20pm Tidy the house some more, leave to drive to my sister’s house.

1.35pm Arrive at Suzanne’s. She coos at my new hair (always gives me a boost to get hair admiration!). Little Josh is sitting on the floor with cushions all around him. He’s laughing and smiling and managing to stay upright….and he’s falling back. And he’s up again, smiling, and he’s back down again. I tickle him and call him a weeble (weebles wobble but they don’t fall down) and he tips forwards again.

1.40pm Suzanne realises the baby car seat is in her husband’s car, so we can’t go to the carpet shop. But neither of us are too bothered and decide to just hang out.

1.45pm-3.50pm We chat, fuss over Josh, have a coffee and catch up. I feel tired again and decide to drive home before I get too sleepy.

4.10pm Back home the sun is streaming into the kitchen, but the house feels cold. Switch on heating.

4.20pm Have a quick chat with my Dad and find out all the Fife gossip.

4.35pm Decide I need to lie down. Set alarm for 35 minutes. Cannot sleep, but close my eyes and rest.

5pm Get up and wander about the house feeling a bit disorientated. Spend some time tidying out my bedroom. The chest of drawers is covered in bits of paper and random objects, so I tackle the mess. I spend a lot of time clearing out my jewellery box and badge box. Find lots of pretty things I’m not fussed about but decide my niece Eva will like. Put them in a spare box and keep them for her. I remember the delight of being giving sparkly costume jewellery as a child and think she will enjoy playing dress up with beads and hairbands.

6pm Put some wholewheat pasta on for dinner. My wonderful husband made bolannaise sauce yesterday, so I am delighted I don’t have to cook. I go back to finish dusting and polishing the bedroom.

6.15pm Dinner is served! It’s yummy, but my tastebuds must be dodgy as I cannot taste the six cloves of garlic Lee put in the sauce. Yes, SIX cloves of garlic.

6.45pm Lee drags me out for a walk. It is beautiful and sunny and I push myself to feel motivated. We take a slow walk to the park and Lee takes photos on the way. We wander about the park. As we head home my legs slowly decide to stiffen and ache, so the last part I feel a little like the Tin Man.

7.25pm Change into tracksuit and sit myself down on the sofa.

7.40pm Realise Lee has left the camera charger at work. The camera doesn’t work and needs to be returned to Canon tomorrow. (Thanks you Citylink for collecting it between 9am and 5pm, how accurate.) So I put my jeans back on and we head over to Lee’s work to pick up the charger. I go along just for the fun of it.

8.15pm We are back home. Settle on sofa. Watch Delia. What are you thinking woman? I shout at the tv many times over. My reliable cook has gone a bit odd. If you are going to cheat – buy a ready meal. If you are going to cook – follow a basic, classic Delia recipe, they are foolproof.

8.45pm Give up on Delia. Phone Audrey for a quick catch-up.

8.55pm Sort out some treasury business for the craft group.

9pm Watch programme on addiction. Very interesting.

10pm until bedtime…the rest of the night is spent watching TV, surfing the internet and doing the dishes.

Not the most exciting or glamourous of days, but I enjoyed myself.

Here is Tuesday the 25th of May as nominated by Marceline.

9am Wake up drooling (thanks wisdom tooth) and in pain. Lee kisses my non-puffed up cheek goodbye. I get up and book an appointment with the dentist. I need to take an antibiotic, so cut up strawberries into bite size pieces and squeeze them into my mouth. They taste lovely but it’s an effort. I chat with Claire on MSN for a while, check my favourite blogs, read email and then log off.

10.30am Back to bed. Take laptop and go and cosy up to watch some TV on BBCiplayer. Sip on a lukewarm cup of herbal tea.

11.30am Write blog. Lie in bed until 2.30pm, resting and dozing. Then I go for a long needed shower. I strip the bedsheets and get them in the washing machine. Have a bowl of homemade soup (thanks Mum!) and a chocolate mousse – yummy but I have to shove it into my mouth. Take more antibiotics and painkillers.

4pm Chat to Fiona for five minutes, then to my Mum. Have to give up as it hurts to talk for long. I know, stop laughing!

5pm Hoover the house. It’s hard work, but I feel the need to get moving. I feel all happy and feng-shui about a clean house. Take washing out of machine. Watch some of a terrible TV show on TMF – Living on the Edge – it’s like a UK version of The Hills – basically a fake reality-documentary that follows rich teenagers. The problem is – they can’t manage all the Dawson’s Creek banter very well, so they fall back on big hair and set-up conversations. It’s quite astonishing that it’s called Living on the Edge – what are they on the edge of? Their tennis court? Their swimming pool? Aah, they live in Alderly Edge – it all makes sense now. How clever. I have no problem with wealthy kids or private schools, but get so annoyed with fake drama. Why don’t they do some kind of life swap docu-reality show where they swap for 2 weeks with teenagers from an impoverished area of Glasgow? Now that would be interesting….

5.45pm Lee rushes into house, grabs his football gear and runs out again.

6pm Baked potatoes go into oven.

6.15pm Something pops in my mouth. I have no idea what it is, but I gulp quickly and hope for the best. I realise there are still three wisdom teeth to come in and feel slightly sick…

7.20pm Lee arrives back from football. I arrange some cottage cheese, smoked salmon and chickpea dahl (all random mushy foods) to eat with the baked potatoes.

7.45pm Yum! Dinner.

8pm Play Animal Crossing on my DS. I am in love with this game. It’s all I ever dreamed of in a computer game – easy, relaxing and cute. The rest of my evening is spent playing the DS, relaxing and watching TV. I go to bed feeling very sick and put a towel on my pillow (comforting childhood habit) and a basin by my bed. I am not looking forward to the dentist.

All in all, a very dull and rather moany day. I am however, constantly reminded that things could be worse, afterall it’s just a tooth.
