Hi all. Been poorly the last few days, another infection, my gallbladder has melted onto my Liver. Yum. Why I think about Rhubarb and custard when they say that is anyones guess.

Had lunch with my Sister today. Had a nice salad and enjoyed the company. Then spent the rest of the day chasing round like a blue arsed fly. I am now sitting down and watching Britains Got Talent. Stavros is through so I am happy.

11 days and counting.

Tough Choices

I woke up this morning to an epic tummy ache...Gallbladder revenge. I had 2 choices, either, lie in bed with the covers over my head weeping softly or I could indulge in some retail therapy. But what to buy? I quickly scanned my clothes and found that last years shorts were way too big. Excellent, thought I an excuse. I hotfooted it out to the shops and found 2 pairs of shorts. One purple and one pair of crop hipster denim(for a laugh) Anyhoo, as I put the hipsters on imagine my surprise when they fitted. Oh dear, now I had a dilemma. Do I go for the purple ones (which are fab) or do I go for the ones that look tiny. As I gazed in the mirror common sense dawned...The hipsters were meant for a 20 year old with smooth skin, no stretch marks and a tan. In case you missed it I just described not me! The purple shorts won!!!

I also bought 2 nightdresses for my hospital stay. My sis Vicki kindly bought me 2 last time I was in but as I am sensing that I could be in for a bit of a stay I bought 2 extra. I mean to go in prepared with a weeks stuff because if I don't Jase will get the selection wrong!Bless him, he means well.

I am feeling a bit more cheerful now, lets just hope we get some sun for me to wear my new purplies! Ed has the tutor later then swimming. He breaks up tomorrow for half term then it's 2 weeks til the op. Bring it!

First Kill

Milo caught his first bird. Clever boy. Not to be outdone, Miss Hoops caught one too, only she brought it in the house still warm...Yuck. Harry then decided to get rid of a pesky magpie that landed 2 inches away from him. He may be old but he still is not to be underestimated. That's 3 for 3....whose turn is it next?

Normally for Gb surgery it is keyhole but mine is in such a mess plus they are not sure whether stones are escaping I was told that to be realistic I would have to expect open surgery. I asked if they could make the keyhole openings a bit bigger but no dice.

Happy belated birthday to Todd. Sorry, mate I did mean to write on fb but my time got away with me yesterday!!!! Hope you had a great day!

Ok. No Race for Life. CRAP. I have adjusted my fundraising page to say I can't do it. It looks like I will be having open surgery 6 days before the race so no chance. Gutted. I do have to wonder why the universe has chosen to pick on me. What did I do to deserve this?
