BLOOD, NEW DUVETS AND DREAMING •
Yesterday as some #retailtherapy
i bought myself this gorgeous duvet cover and pillowcase set... been so busy sorting the girls rooms and getting practical stuff for the living room, I’ve not even painted my room yet... then i saw this in #TKMax
- reduced from around 150 to £40... MINE!!! •
My period started on Saturday and i thought it had pretty much ended.
Not much to write home about in fact pretty measly... not only on time but no pain and very light. Off the back of all my recent stresses i was surprised but didn’t question it... but last night seemingly was the beginning and the last few days just a taster. I awoke at 534am in agony... i could visualise the blood about to drop into the canal of my #vagina
... could feel the unmistakable tension of a dam about to burst... ‘oh no, my new satin duvet cover set’ was my first thought as i eased myself out of bed and started to move, gently towards the bathroom... halfway there i stopped in mild panic as i felt the earth move and oceans upon oceans unfurl and that incredibly sensual feeling of warm fresh blood running down my thighs... fortunately i managed to make it to the safety of the bathroom lino before said blood hit the floor... in my dazed and confused state i wished I’d bought my phone with me to take a picture cos the blood looked so pretty... the droplets and pools upon the bathroom floor were like mirrors and the patterns it made on my legs... rivers and streams heading for earth, navigating and forging a path through the barrier of coconut oil upon my skin looked volcanic... after having cleaned myself up, inserted a tampon and reapplying the coconut oil i went back to bed and slept really deeply for 2 more hours... in my dreams i was a bird flying on a beach around sunset. I was without a flock but not alone. Nothing happened really but the sense of freedom was immense. •
God i love being a woman!
