A musing and other things

How quickly you can get used to something different! After living alone for 3years and spending the majority of my evenings alone, at first it was weird having D around every evening when we moved into together 8months ago. Now when he is missing for an evening I feel abit lost and don't know what to do with an evening by myself. I always thought I would be greatful for an evening alone but it appears that is not the case. I miss having him in the house, even if we are not in the same room its the knowledge he is there if I wanted to have a random chat. Is this a sign of dependence on him or just a sign that I've turned into an old married woman who craves routine rather than the abnormal?? Who knows.

August has been a bit of a busy month in some ways, it certainly feels like lots has been going on anyway! Lots of wedding preparations have been done, with things marked off the to do list we created. Birthdays have been celebrated, including seeing my grandma turn 85. She is a very special lady to me and this year has been abit of a tough year with her health, with lots of ongoing tests to try and work out what is going on and if anything can be done or if its just the effects of old age. My biggest worry is that she wont be well enough to travel for my wedding, but I know by hook or by crook she will be there if she is capable.

Things to look forward to:
Celebrating A turning 4 with a party and watching his face (hopefully) beam in delight at the presents we have got him. I can't wait to see him celebrate his birthday!

It is also my birthday this year, but so far I'm not really feeling it and could quite happily let it go by. All I have asked is that I get to spend the day with D & A but otherwise I couldnt care less what I do or anything else. D has said he will take me for a birthday meal though to one of my favourite resturants which I haven't visited for awhile, so thats kind of exciting.

I also have a dress fitting coming up for getting it altered so it is the correct length and need to have my wedding shoes and underwear with me for the fitting, so thats quite exciting!

September is full of lots of exciting things which I will blog about as they happen

So its been awhile! I had a great period of health and managed two whole months before I needed to go back on IVs, however when I did need to go back on them it was felt a weeks stay in hospital would be beneficial boo!

I've been on holiday to Hafan Y Mor, Pwellheli with D and A in a caravan. It was a great week and I took over 300 photos from it. We had lots of fun doing different things during the day and meeting up with D's family in the evening for an hour or so in the club so A could meet the characters (I think his favourite may have been Rory the Tiger but he seemed to enjoy a cuddle with Anxious the Elephant too).

Plans have been afoot for the wedding and we are now down to the final things that need to be sorted, organised or bought ready for October.

At the end of July I made the very hard decision to step down as Beaver Scout Leader from my beaver group to enable concentration on my health for awhile and to ensure I am in tip top condition for the wedding. I am sure I will return to scouting but for now I am having a couple of months out.

I have started on a new nebuliser antibiotic which is 3 times a day, it is done a month on a month off. On the month off I will be started on the TOBI podhaler, which is meant to be better than the bramitob nebuliser. Both of these things and a set of IVs that have been prebooked for the start of September as a precautionary thing are all to enable to enjoy my wedding to the best that I can and not be too poorly or tired on the day.

Birthdays have been celebrated and time has been enjoyed with A and D at home doing general stuff like trips to the park, time in the garden ( A is currently loving helping D water the plants in the garden and generally help in a big boy way) and playing with play-dough.

This coming month we have more birthdays to celebrate, a trip to the cinema to see Smurfs 2 and a free breakfast at the local beefeater that was won in a raffle.
