I have been feeling rotten about not being allowed in the sunlight for the next week and not being able to swim the the Great London Swim so my whole trip to London is going to spent inside during the day, only able to venture outside in the evenings. Well I am sure I will still have fun with my family and I will try and watch my sister and her partner swim it anyway.
But today I was overwhelmed when one of my friends suggested we do something tonight that i would enjoy because he knew I had been feeling unwell and I guess he gathered how upset I have been over this whole illness. So I held a poker night at my house and at the very last minute a few of my friends came which made me feel so much better about everything, they were willing to travel to see me, comfort me and keep me company. So I thought I would honour these particular friends who managed to come.
So yeah, I know my other friends were to busy or in other countries so couldn't make it, but it really made me feel better that these came and we had such a good poker night. Okay I didn't win but I came second, I was playing recklessly because there wasn't money involved in this game. Apparently some students are too broke to buy in to a poker game! Who would have thought it haha?!
