Sorry I should have written something before. I'm okay. I'm still waiting to speak with the consultant about the results of the MRI but it is the NHS and I can't expect things to happen immediately. I should know by the end of next week at the latest which will by then be two weeks after the scan.
I'm afraid I haven't really read done any blog reading. I feel a tiny bit spaced out most of the time. Not as much as I should considering how many tablets I'm popping but not enough to concentrate for long. I've also just wanted to be 100% with the boys as it's half term. They have been hilarious! My boys are really funny, I mean seriously funny, and I'm not just saying that because I love them and I'm biased because I'll admit they can also be a nightmare but they have such a great sense of fun. They have also been so kind and caring and considerate of everything that is going on. Typing that makes me want to cry because I wish they didn't have to be considerate of me. Anyway I wanted this post to be upbeat so here's a few alternative words for things that you should all use from now on. They make me smile.
These gems are from Small. When things have disappeared they've actually missappeared. I think that's quite clever, he started saying it when he was two and it's just stuck. Something was missing and he said it had missappeared ...and a trampoline is a bounceoline...
Food... we've have had some gorgeous food.... Haddock sprinkled with herbs then wrapped in pancetta, drizzled with olive oil, then roasted in the oven with tomatoes and kohl rabi which I have fallen in love with. It's absolutely gorgeous raw!
Pasta with spinach and enormous prawns, chilli, garlic and the tiniest amount of cream.
An experimental cake with bananas and marmalade which was so good I wish you could all pop round for a slice and a cup of really good coffee or tea or a vat of gin if that was your choosing.
We've also had some truly dreadful food including a McDonalds when we came out of hospital one day and we were all totally starving. Funnily enough and I'm ashamed to say it tasted good!
I do seriously wish you could pop round for coffee, it would be great to just chat with my lovely cyber friends. Besides you could cook me something marvellous and that would be truly splendid!
