It's hard enough getting out of bed each day on The Block — let alone doing it under the weather, as Sophie recently found out.
"I get pretty bad headaches and migraines, and they've been pretty bad the past few days," she admits. "We had a challenge yesterday, and I struggled through it."
Sophie says that frequent exhaustion coupled with the environmental difficulties associated with living on a building site are really taking a toll on her health.
"I think [my headaches] have cropped up a lot more because of the dust," she explains. "Stress, and not drinking enough water too."
Sophie is finding it difficult to stay properly hydrated during the day, and says she needs to make more of an effort to drink her allocated 8 glasses of water a day.
"I don't want to drink too much before I go to bed, because the bathroom is so far away!" she explains. "It means I have to trek all the way out across the site to the toilet in the dark — it's dangerous out there. There are three bathrooms in this house — and I can't use any of them!"
Here's hoping their plumbing is connected soon.
A shopping spree with Shaynna
It isn't all bad news for Sophie — she and Dale had a personal shopping session with judge and interior designer, Shaynna Blaze.
Feel like retracing their steps? Shaynna took them to visit Grant Dorman Interior Products and Spacecraft, Fitzroy.
