Be Back Soon

Evening

Thanks to those who've wondered where I am disappeared to :)



Just a bloggy break as life has taken over recently - so much stuff to sort, rehome etc. One move has taken place and the boys & I should (keeping it all crossed) be having ours early August.

Another big event in my life takes place next week - my pesky and sometimes very painful gall-bladder is being removed. It has caused no end of problems recently - another trip to A & E and some days I rattle with all the painkillers I take. The upside of it all - since this first started to play up in the Autumn, I've lost 3 stone and dropped 2 dress sizes! I was wearing an old pair of jeans today to paint some garden furniture and its just crazy to think that they fitted in the autumn - they are so huge now. I fully intend to never fit those jeans again!

The Morris dancing continues - I am so grateful to my friend for dragging me there in early Feb - I never realised how much fun it could be. The butterflies no longer plague me - instead a wonderful calm happens for several days after a day out. Off out again in a little while - this will be my last one for a couple of weeks. I have no idea how longer it will take for me to feel ok to dance - the hospital say a couple of weeks and others who have had the same op vary from about 10 days to the more pessimistic 6 weeks! I am aiming for the shorter recovery - life is to short to slob around in baggy joggers!!

Right - just checking my list - twizzly skirt, big stick, boots, mask and tailcoat - oh and beer money!!

See you soon

Wishing you all the best with the move and especially the gall bladder operation. I had mine out about 5 years ago and I recovered very well. Take care of you.

Hi Vicki, thanks for the update...I was wondering how you are.
Hope the op goes well, my Mum is having the same procedure next week, so I know how horrible the attacks are.

Good luck with the op - I was so relieved when I had mine removed. Nothing can describe the pain you can suffer with gall stones! Be very careful with that weight then, unfortunately I put all mine back on and more...........once I could eat everything again without being scared! Now I'm dieting to try to lose it again!! Take care and don't overdo it afterwards though -x-

I used to Morris Dance many years ago and we used to have so much fun! M x
