The Day It Came Back

on Jan 30, 2016

THE COUGH. IT CAME BACK. I know, right? I am so over this now. TL;DR, after telling the doctor that the cough/wheezing has moved to my throat (wtf), he now thinks it may be acid reflux related. And even though I already take medication for that, he wants me to take more, just in case that’s the cause. LOL, right? I’m off the steroids now, though. So yay for that. My week was pretty frantic; more writing deadlines to juggle with a busy schedule day-job wise. Writing has been stressful (read: irritating), but I can’t talk about what’s irritating me on a public post, so let’s gloss over it. Wednesday I went to a leaving party and saw some colleagues who no longer work there, and that was lovely. Thursday I went out for dinner with M and K and others to celebrate M’s birthday, and that was also lovely, if a bit weird (the restaurant only had four menus...

The Day With My Sister From Another Mister

on Jan 18, 2016

My weekend was magnificent; stuffed full of love and laughter and good food and good times. I ate too much and drank too much and stayed up too late and I don’t even care. It was fabulous. Sometimes I wonder if D and I have remained friends for 20+ years because we live 200 miles apart, and other times, I miss having her near with a ferocity that hurts. We’re lucky that our husbands too get on, as do our kids, so when we’re all together, the house is noisy with love and laughter. We don’t do much when we’re together – sit and watch TV, eat, and drink. We don’t need much, I guess (which is just as well, considering how shitty the weather was over the weekend). Rather excitingly, we’re having an extra visit next month. We’re both in the wild a bit with childcare, and living so far away from each other doesn’t make it easy for us...

The Day With 2015

on Jan 2, 2015

I was totally going to start with a Back to the Future joke. Be grateful that I didn’t. Our best friends from down south joined us for New Year. It was touch and go for a bit – their eldest was vomiting less than twenty four hours before they reached us – but thankfully it all worked out, and although J started to feel unwell whilst here, we got through the three days with zero vomit. EXCELLENT. It did put a bit of a dampner on activities as we didn’t quite manage a meal out or anything, but we watched the Inbetweeners 2 whilst waiting for the clock to strike midnight (it was amazing – better than the original film), and then popped a bottle of Cava and watched the fireworks on TV. It was low key, but wonderful. I felt love and loved and really, what else can you ask for? As I said a year ago, resolutions and I don’t mix. The goals I set myself...
