I have had a couple of manic weeks, in both my head and the real? world! I have started a couple of posts but they didn't come together and gel into anything except manic meandering and dismal drivel.
I popped by Sass's blog, One lustful mum, er no that isnt right, Sass is of course One strangely lush mother, sorry Sass, it just drips of my tongue, I have no filter today! I've caught up with her last few posts and borrowed and tweaked her most recent because it enables me to sum up the past couple of weeks a little more cohesively. I hope you agree, well you would if I let you see my saved drafts. I must delete them!
So to sum up for you.
Frazzled- waiting to know if our house move is going through. Yes again! We are cramped and encroaching into each others personal space in this house. Though lovely, it is small for us 4 big people. This garden has more room and if it were warmer l'd be out there, but it isn't and so I'm not!
Moved...as posted by Sass I too am moved by the sad news of Ivan Cameron. The press appear to have given the family the space they need at this awful time. As India Knight wrote in TST give a thought to Ivan's siblings. Ivan has probably been the shadow and the light in their lives until now and I'm sure Samantha and David will help them adjust.
Shocked - to learn I have sustained high bp.That it is higher than Larry's, who has been on meds for 20 years and now I am on a higher dose than he is! The doc is trying to get it down to a manageable level, so I can try HRT, because of my 'severe symptoms'.
Sweaty - my hot fushes/flashes are up to every 20 minutes or so, my cycle all over the show, but I believe they're on the wane. My doctor is happy to let me try Hrt again, as there are so many types now on offer and I am hopeful we will find the right one for me this time around. I keep turning off the heating and everyone says it's cold...not in my word it isn't. And when I have a flush, its all consuming I have to stop mid sentence and fan myself!
Humbled- by the bravery of Jade Goody. Some may say or think she is still after the limelight. Well as she naively entered the Big brother house and I was encouraged by a huge block of the uk public, who watched and voted on that series, me included, she may well be, who can blame her. It has been thebetter part of her troubled life. I don't read the red tops, but on other news it appeared her neighbour was having a go at her as she got into her car! With the press outside her door how could he not. The git. She is still giving interviews, to be paid and to encourage other woman to have regular smear tests (and l know some who have never had a smear, they are too shy and ignorant to do so). I had dodgy cells caught on a smear test, an erosion too, shortly after I had a miscarriage. I had treatment immediately. It may have saved my life.
I wish Jade some pain free moments with her boys and family. I cannot begin to feel her anguish. How does one manage to breath in and out and put one foot in front of the other knowing your time with your children and in this world is so very limited. I could weep for her.
