Today we got the gift of hope. Hope for a future with children. Today we were told that we can go ahead with the IVF. I'm really quite excited about the whole thing even though I'm also trying desperately not to be. There is after all quite a large chance it won't work - the statistics say so. But still...
So last Thursday I had an interview in an old peoples home, on Friday I got offered the job. The thing is I've heard nothing since and as I need a DBS check (for non-UK types that's a criminal records check to make sure I'm not about to kick any little old ladies or something) … Continue reading Busy, busy
Monday was not my day. I walked to the local shop to pick up some bread and milk instead of heading into town for a proper shop. On the way back I went flying. I ended up sprawled all over the floor in front of some poor woman and her daughter walking their dog. They … Continue reading Walking along, then, splat….
So we are now ready to go on with the frozen cycle. Theoretically. The clinic don't seem to want to check anything else out and think I should book as soon as possible for the frozen cycle. I need to do this. But I'm reluctant to as well. It terrifies the living daylights out of … Continue reading IVF: The Next Step
I have a problem - I love Creme Eggs. All well and good you think. This is Creme Egg season. Except, Cadbury has only gone and done a Willy Wonka style prize thing if you can only find the White Chocolate Creme Eggs. Wonderful. The chance to win money and if you don't win you … Continue reading Creme Eggs and the disgustingness of people
I'm a dreadful sleeper, or at least I'm a dreadful getting to sleeper. Always have been. It takes me ages and ages to go to sleep. I can't switch my brain off not that I'm thinking of anything particularly bad but at the same time it's just going, whirring away all the time. Recently however … Continue reading Insomnia, interviews and Shaun the Sheep
Well, nearly. Technically there's still a fortnight or so to go. 32 sounds so old and grown up. And I'm neither of those things really. There's nothing I enjoy more than a bit of silliness, or maybe a lot of silliness. I can have whole conversations about random made up stuff. They're the best sort … Continue reading 32 years old
No wonder I felt like Crumpets for breakfast - apparently this blog has lasted a whole year*. I'm quite impressed with this. A year is a long time. Or on the other hand it's a very short amount of time. It all depends on your perspective. Time is a weird thing, I've never really been … Continue reading One Year On
So I feel I'm blaming 2017 for a few too many things. It has, to be fair been a stressful year what with IVF and moving twice etc etc finished off by a leaking hot water tank and a washing machine not doing it's thing, really not good as I have about a million towels … Continue reading 2017 wasn’t all bad, honest
2017 has most emphatically not been our year as proven by the latest fiasco. We came home after Christmas to find our hot water tank had sprung a leak leaking through the floor of the airing cupboard and into a puddle by the front door which I stepped in when we came through the front … Continue reading Why, 2017? Why?
Finally. I mean it - it's finally starting to feel like Christmas. I'm a huge fan of Christmas. I mean huge - I love it. I spend ages getting the perfect presents, my tree is up on the First of December that sort of thing. I love the lights and the excitement and the secrets. … Continue reading It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
