Wake me up when my life becomes normal again

HA, what a joke, like my life has ever been normal. And what is normal anyway?

Whilst we’re at it, have I really been away from WordPress that long…..I’ve logged on and they’ve decided, just for kicks, to confuse the shizzle out of my by revamping everything. Not cool.

 

So, I’m writing this from bed, because my body hates me and doesn’t want to move a muscle without pain shooting through my abdomen. Again, not cool. Welcome to the fun and fabulous world of Crohn’s Disease!!  I don’t normally have crash and burn days where I have to get into bed though in all fairness, I think my inflammation is just so far through the roof that my body has had enough and needs a time out…..and maybe a few painkillers whilst I’m at it! As a result of my feebleness tonight, my mum has decided ‘no more crap is coming into this house now’, and by crap she means everything that is joyous in life. Chocolate, crisps and shortbread. I want to cry haha

 

I also need to kick Chiquitos ass at some point soon too, I went for lunch today with my boyfriend and no joke, over half an hour we waited for our food and I was pretty sure they hadn’t gone to catch my fish themselves! My opinion, they’d had the fish grilling away for that full half hour because I’ve never had to chew fish as much in my life, and to add insult to injury, the rice was definitely something that had either come from a microwave or had been reheated, it sat in clumps around my plate. Vile.

 

So as you can all see I’ve come back grumpier than ever haha my bad, I’m sorry! An early night is needed tonight, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and my body will be friends with me again 🙂 A girl can dream right!!

 

Sweet dreams folks xoxo

Birthdays

Tomorrow I turn 26. Twenty-frickin-six.

Generally I look forward to my birthdays, but that was before my early twenties slipped away from me. So depressing. Oh, and I found a WHITE hair today, it didn’t even have the decency to be grey, it was full on white, on the top of my head, taunting me! So I did what anyone would do, squawk about it, then pull it out!

So until tomorrow *sigh*

Xoxo

Babies,babies,babies

Just had to share our very first nappy cake with you, we’re so proud of it haha it’s a custom order, we’d never made one before but I’m addicted!! Isn’t it sweet?!!

2 Blogs in 2 days, didn’t I do well!!!

I mentioned yesterday that I had started reading the Twilight books…well the first one anyway, I thought now that the craze had calmed down a bit in between films I’d take the opportunity to see what all the fuss was about. I.AM.HOOKED. I refused to be sucked in when the first film came out, and I was a HUGE Buffy fan way back when, but I just refused to be sucked in my yet another franchise. I did the same with Harry Potter, and Glee, but now I feel like I’m really late to the game and have missed out on seeing what could have possibly been amazing films at the cinema! I’m now on a mission to read all of the books before November so that I can at least see the last one on the big screen haha I’m such a geek. But seriously, I’m gonna end up broke at this rate between buying the books (the first was £4.99 on my Kindle so I dread to think what the newer ones will be), then the fact I NEED, not want, NEED to see the films, this is not gonna be a cheap month.

 

I do love a good book though, I downloaded a sample of the Hunger Games and quite enjoyed that too so maybe I’ll download that after my Twilight binge. Are there anymore good books I could read out there? I love books that can carry on, like Wicked too, fantastic reads in my opinion, and the I Heart series by Lindsey Kelk, amazing chick lit, and the carry on so you get a continuous fix haha

 

Oh, oh and…..HURRAH!!! I have my bridesmaid dress as of last Monday. We went to Meadowhall, a mall in the next county to where I live and found a dress in a store that wasn’t even a ‘bridesmaid’ dress but it’s lovely! And only £45, and is cream! Mum figured why conform to tradition, who says we can’t both be in the same colour, hey, if it works for Kate Middleton!! One major snag is that mum still actually needs her dress and the wedding is on 24 August. Yikes.

 

That’s me for now anyway folks

Lazy blogger

Hey hey! Just checking in to confirm that yes, I am still alive, but boy am I a great big ball of sleepiness.

These last couple of months my Crohns has kinda kicked my arse a little bit……ok a lot. I had it appear in my throat which is a pure mother plucker, then, as I got that under control I started to struggle to walk properly and lift my right leg. Weird right? Well when I saw my gastro on 13 April he said there was a risk that it could be an abscess. Be still my beating heart.

Anyway, after one CT scan referral, a giant thromby on my part over no one telling me they wanted to pump a load of contrast dye in my veins, then a different hospital and an MRI scan, I am happy to tell you I have no abscess! It’s my stricture which may not be scarring (bonus for my mammoth appetite) which indicates that I’m in, yet another, major flare. Anyway on a happy note I started medication today, I’m being built up slowly on it and am extremely hopeful that this will work now instead of the damn steroids.

So that’s my grumble over, and an explanation as to why I’ve been so quiet, I’ve just been absolutely drained with everything and have been trying to just relax. I started reading the first Twilight the other night too but that’s a whole other blog!!

Peace out my little cherubs xxxxxx

Bad blogger

Wow, have I been a sucky blogger or what?!!

The last few weeks have seriously FLOWN by, seriously, I can’t even remember what’s happened in between me blogging last and now, aside from the exhausting weekend I’ve just had with my mum looking at bridesmaid dresses for me. You’d think this would be an enjoyable task for all taking part but alas, no, because my mum is quite indecisive when it comes to some stuff, take colour schemes for example. She started off wanting burnt orange, gorgeous right? When you’re getting married in Cyprus you want vivid colours that blend with the country you’re in in my opinion…….but trying to find anything burnt orange at the time (last August/September) was impossible, nowhere had anything, so the colour changed to baby pink. Cute, no? NO. Because god dammit when we went to 2 major shopping malls this weekend, the White Rose and Trafford Centre we did the length of both malls several times and can away with, you guessed it, NOTHING! However we did come away with a potential new colour scheme. Olive green. Only it’s not an olive olive green……here, this is the dress we kinda like……..

 

This is called Anna Green according to BHS

 

It does look slightly darker in real life. So we may be going with green, because none of the shades of pink were right sooooo, but it’s ok, we still have….. *GULP* 4 months left. No need to panic right? Right???

 

Seriously though, it was fun this weekend to all go out together to look at them but I genuinely thought I was going to keel over at one point, this was either because I am completely unfit, or because they had the heat too high and it dehydrated me…..I’m going for the second option 😉

 

Who knows what the final decision will be, but I will keep you updated haha

 

Have I missed much??

 

Over and out xoxo

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?!

I was sat talking to my boyfriend last night and we both realised just how fast time seems to go as you get older. I mean, I’d already realised this once I got into the working world because you find yourself praying for your holidays, or bank holidays, or even the days that your boss goes on holiday! But last night I had a really depressing thought…..it’s TEN YEARS this year since I left school. I’m officially getting closer to 30 day by day. Zoiks.

Age generally hasn’t ever really bothered me. I have a friend who started using anti-wrinkle cream at 21, seems like a waste of time to start so young if you ask me, I know some may disagree but, as long as you keep your skin well moisturised and look after it then you’ve got a pretty good shot of keeping wrinkles at bay. Wrinkles are a fact of life unless you’re wanting to go under the knife, I’d rather just wear them with pride (providing I don’t start to look like an elephant at 30, then I may have a different opinion on the matter).

I look through old photographs sometimes and think, really, was that however many years ago? The post I did recently on San Francisco contained pictures from my holiday in 2009, 2009, that was almost THREE YEARS ago, a sad fact that makes me want to weep into my green tea. Sigh. It’s the same with music isn’t it, do you ever hear a song and think, aargh I remember this from that night me and *insert name here* were on a night out and stumbled up to the DJ like a drunken fool demanding he play such a classic. And yes, Dolly Parton 9 to 5 IS a classic despite what that nightclub DJ says.

It’s a sad fact of life that time goes too quickly, depending which way you look at things too it can be downright depressing but, I’m choosing to think of it as a reminder that I should shift my little ass and work on that bucket list because it isn’t going to complete itself. I should start with something easy, to give myself a boost so I feel like somethings getting done, like when you write a to do list, even if its a really easy and quick task that you’ve checked off, the point is, you’ve made a start and one item has been checked off. Now, I think trying caviar might be the easiest one because, because, and I hope, the snow angel is a no go until we get more snow around December (please mother nature, spring snow is unacceptable. Just saying.)

Never take a day for granted! I’m off to requaint myself with my bucket list haha have a fun weekend folks!!

XOXO
