It's so annoying. I got a missed call from one of the doctors at the Clinic Wednesday. No idea which one as I couldn't understand his accent. By the time I got the message and phoned back the clinic was closed. I work in a cellar - my mobile is out of signal for the … Continue reading IVF – how the Lost Astronomer doesn’t count
I've always loved being outside on summer evenings. There are a couple of reasons reasons for this. 1. As mentioned previously I am not a heat person, in fact I go so far as to hide from it. 2. The light is so pretty. 3. It's good thinking time. My parents always hated my habit of going … Continue reading An evening stroll around Follytown
Well that's that then, no more IVF for a few months. Today we went to the Fertility Clinic for a baseline scan before starting on the next round of IVF in this case a frozen round. They were using the scan to check for a polyp which they'd picked up on during the first round … Continue reading And Pause!
The sun has come out with a vengeance. Starting yesterday. Or at least starting properly yesterday. The couple of days before yesterday alternated between blazing sun and pouring rain.

I'm not very original and find it better if the Lost Astronomer points at something and I tell him the word. So down on the farm … Continue reading Teaching The Lost Astronomer Welsh: Animals
I knew today was going to be annoying as soon as I stepped out of my front door this morning. The reason for this was that just as the door closed I realised that my keys were inside. This is never a good sign. What's worse the Lost Astronomer is in Portsmouth and when not … Continue reading One of those days…
So I'm very close to my teulu (family) and as a result the gwr (husband) and I spend a lot of time traveling back and forth to Wales. Two and a half hours from our current cartref (home) and probably at least three and a half from our next one. However it's worth it to … Continue reading Teaching the Lost Astronomer Welsh: Family
The last time I went to the cinema was to see LaLaLand which I wasn't that impressed with: not MGM enough for me! That feels like last year sometime, although I am aware it's probably only a couple months ago. And now all of a sudden I've spent two Saturday nights in the cinema. Last … Continue reading Cinema
So we're about 5 weeks on from the period that made it clear that our first round of IVF has failed. I didn't even get to do a pregnancy test while not bleeding... Today, we saw the doctor - he went through the whole IVF procedure with us, explaining this was normal and that was … Continue reading IVF Time to Reflect
