I went for my follow up appointment with the consultant today for my knee problems. We’ve decided that they’re going to operate on it.  There’s a 5 month waiting list (bloody NHS) but that’s OK. I’m just relieved that it’s finally going to get sorted.

In other news, we’re getting a Wii!! I’m so excited. It got dispatched today so fingers crossed it’ll be here for the weekend!

That’s how I feel. I feel like I’m being dragged in a lot of directions and I don’t have time for them all. If it’s not work, it’s physio. If it’s not physio, it’s the kitchen. If it’s not the kitchen it’s hoovering the dog hair. If it’s not hoovering the dog hair, it’s puppy class. If it’s not puppy class, it’s my parents. And so on. Also, as of next week, add Fat Club to the list!! When do I get time to have a life?

We’re so busy all the time that we don’t have time for us, and it’s starting to affect us. We irritate each other.

It’s like everything boils down to “when the kitchen’s done” and I bloody hope things do calm down then, because I think I’m about to collapse with exhaustion!

I Must be MAD!!!

I’ve signed up to do a sponsored sky dive for Tommy’s, the baby charity. It takes place on August 25th. I have never been so scared, nervous and excited in all my life.

I’m aiming to raise £1000 and I’m halfway there with one single sponsor thanks to the company that hubby works for!

I’ve tried to raise sponsor money from my blog before and it hasn’t worked, so I’m not going to post the link, if people want to sponsor me, they’ll let me know.

Wish me luck everyone!!

Kitchen Update

It may not look different to the last picture, but look closely……


Can you tell? Can you?

All of the electrics have been done, AND

I have a ceiling.

Kind of.

The plasterboard is up, the plastering gets done next weekend.

It’s a slow process, but the finished result will be worth it.

I am ill.

I don’t have tonsillitis, I have a chest infection. I have no voice, a bad cough, a streaming cold and I look like shit.

I hate being ill. I haven’t been off sick for over a year! I went in today after my doctors appointment, I lasted just over 4 hours before I was sent home. I don’t think I’ll be in tomorrow. I’ll be here, at home, feeling sorry for myself.

Just so you can see how bad it is….

….this is my kitchen


See, I’m not blowing it out of proportion, it REALLY IS shit. And it won’t be complete for another 6-8 weeks.

Does anyone want to invite us round for dinner?

Stressed Out

I am extremely stressed out. I have no kitchen, no worktops, no cooker, no oven. I don’t even have a ceiling. This whole getting a new kitchen thing isn’t as good as I thought it might be.
