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

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

Have you ever thought about sayings….

Sometimes I tend to have really random thoughts. Not like, why is the grass green, or what is the meaning of life, that’s far too deep to be honest with you!! So, I thought about the thoughts that I think about the most….confused?! You will be hahaha I just sometimes wonder where on Earth sayings come from, or just why on Earth we say such stupid things anyway. If anyone has any answers to these then please do let me know, I’m always happy to learn random bits of information, I’m like a mine full of crappy knowledge usually!!

 

 

  • Losing out hand over fist – huh?
  • I was up at Sparrows Cough – do sparrows actually cough?
  • It’s all gravy – as oppose to what, jam??
  • It’s raining cats and dogs – no it’s not, it always has been and always will be, WATER
  • What’s on the gogglebox – is this an English/Northern thing??
  • I’ve got eyes in the back of my head – weird
  • Grass is never greener on the other side – of what??
  • You can’t polish a turd – just gross!!
  • You can take a girl out of the city but not the city out of the girl
  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away – wanna bet!!
  • Every dog has its day – to doooooo?
  • You’re as keen as mustard you – I just don’t get it.

 

The list could really go on but, you get the general idea. I would just like to know who the hell creates these things?! Any why, really, why would you even want to polish a turd. Vile.

 

I guess sayings make for an pleasant world but (you see, again, why would it make for a pleasant world, I’m sure David Cameron isn’t thinking, if only I could think of some sayings dammit then I know we could have world peace).

 

I’m beginning to rant now. It has been a long day, I’m gonna get my ass to bed before I start driving myself crazy! Until tomorrow 🙂
