Guess where we have booked...... Well we have a while to go before we actually go so we are keeping our fingers crossed it all gets sorted out beforehand.

It couldn't all go smoothly could it!?!

Hen Party

I had my Hen do this weekend. Was really great. My bridesmaid, T, did a great job organising it and we all had a great time. I attempted to drink a sensible amount in order to feel fine this morning but I obviously was not careful enough and felt terrible this morning after being woken up with a horrible headache. I took a triptan over my small breakfast and that got rid of the headache but my tummy still feels terrible and I am having hot flushes.......

We had a lovely day at St Anne's Manor, I had a facial and then sat in a jaccuzi for longer than I should have! Everyone else had a treatment and spent time relaxing. We then had dinner booked for 8pm - 3 course buffet. I was wearing a mini tiara and viel and flashing sash saying 'bride to be'! I was just what I wanted as a hen do, family and friends around me, relaxing, great!

I picked up B's Mum from the station Friday evening and we had a nice dinner and evening chatting. I took her back this afternoon and I was pleased at how well we managed!

Oh, almost forgot, when I got back from work Friday the doorbell rang and it was one of my neighbours asking if he could come in and rod the drains as they were backing up - nice. I of course let them get on with it and apparently they managed to do a reasonable job of getting it flowing again.

I happened to mention the cards we had been receiving for W and S, the husband and son in the family we bought the house from and that I thought something had happened to L, the wife, as nothing had her name on it. Apparently she had cancer when she was younger which was cleared, however she was diagnosed as having lung cancer which then moved to her brain, she died within 9 months, 10 months or so after they moved. She was 41, mother and wife, so very sad.

I am now sat on the sofa debating bed...... Very tired and feeling icky......

Not long to go......!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As the title suggests we are now rushing very quickly towards our wedding date and associated honeymoon. It's all very exciting, well I think it is supposed to be anyway. I don't feel overly excited yet. Maybe it's all the planning and the 'will everything go to plan' thoughts. I am not sure I actually believe it is happening, although my bank balance certainly does......

I have had my hair and make up trials and had my nails done, all in one week - unsurprisingly enough it was a week of rushing from one thing to another. I am still having the first 15 of my Oxygen session which has made it hard to fit it all in, but I am also feeling better for it (I think, who knows..). I have officially stopped the accupuncture. I haven't had it for 2 odd weeks and have felt fine. I think all the improvements I was having were correcting things that had got worse the week before and could be put down to anything..... It is however one less thing to fit into my week, which is a relief.

The Oxygen Therapy is going well, I have had 9 sessions and feel fine throughout and afterwards, even with working half days beforehand. I am hoping to continue with it but will obviously have to have a discussion with work about the time off to do it......

The kittens are still idiots. Pepsi is now getting to be bigger than Whisky but then she does take after her father who was a big, sturdy looking black and white cat, Whisky takes after his mother who is a petite, mainly black cat. He is still a numpty but at least we can now get him off the flat roof without having to use the recycle bin as a lift.

MS wise - my fingers are crossed, I am touching wood and generally pleading with my body to behave as it is now - sensibly!!

Oxygen (again)

I have just had a look at Google Analytics - it appears that people are still looking at my blog, if only by accident, some people are reading though!

I went back to Oxygen Therapy on Monday. It seems to be going well. My ears are clearing fine, a little slower than pre cold but it's not hurting so that's all good. I am finding that whilst I am in the chamber I start to feel very tired, however I haven't been tired in general and even managed to get to the gym! I am keeping my fingers crossed that it helps, even if just a little. So many people have said how good it is.

I am in the process of getting an appointment to have my nails done - very friendly lady! Apparently for the look I want I need acrylic nails, which is fine, I had them before. I know my nails will end up atrocious but hey, they will look good!

I am now going to watch new season CSI on the sky+ box and eat a dairy free ice cream!
