Unintentional Hiatus – March 2016

April 6, 2016

Where I’ve Been…

I didn’t mean to disappear so completely. Well technically I didn’t I was still on instagram and twitter a bit but for me March was a hard month and to be honest I knew it was going to be health-wise as every other month tends to be worse. But other stuff happened too. Someone stole our paving stones from our backyard! While I was home. Who does that?! 
We got our new cooker which is so much better than our old one and I can’t wait to convince Ryan to bake something in it.
My laptop suddenly went and died, with no warning. So I’ve been using my husbands iMac and it’s taking a bit of getting used too. 
Our kitchen ceiling finally had enough after six months of waiting for our handyman to fix the leak and started spurting water on Easter Sunday. Which meant we were mopping the floor for ages.
Ryan had a weeks holiday but it was while I was on my period and doing the whole vomiting and diarrhoea so it was a bit rubbish as I spent most of it in bed and we didn’t get to do anything fun! My ring finger came out in an awful rash so I’ve had to take my engagement and wedding ring off for nearly three weeks now while it heals back up and my hand feels so naked now!

What’s Been Going On Health-wise…

As I said I new March was going to be a bad month but I lost 4lbs in two weeks with being so ill. I’m now about 7 stone 9lbs. I spent 10 hours vomiting one Saturday, which was a new level of awful, even for me. 
I’ve really badly burnt my stomach with constantly using a hot water bottle and my stomach now resembles the coat of a cheetah, very splotchy. I’m now wrapping my hot water bottle in a towel. I still have nearly constant hip/ovary pain and can’t tend to walk for very long without the pain becoming really unbearable.
I finally went back to the Drs to try and work something out and I was given a prescription for anti-inflammatories to take all the time now but sadly they really mess with my intestines and give me a whole different kind of pain to deal with and just aren’t worth it.
On what I’m hoping is a plus side my Dr is going to chase up why I haven’t heard anything about being on the waiting list for surgery!

What I’ve Been Watching…

I’ve been addicted to Kung Fu Panda (the first one) as well as Man From U.N.C.L.E and when I say addicted I mean watching them on repeat over and over for days and days. Actually I’m still doing it in April!
We also watched Spectre, Kung Fu Panda 3 and Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mocking Jay Part 1 and Mocking Jay Part 2 and we finally finished season five of Rizzoli and Isles which thankfully didn’t have a suspenseful ending but I’m sad as season seven will be the last season!
On Sky we’ve been catching up with Code Black which is a little like Grey’s Anatomy but also not and it’s great when I need a good cry but have no actual reason to cry because it’s some emotionally heart-wrenching stuff.

What I’ve Been Eating…

I tend to use my instagram for mostly posting food pictures, because it helps me keep track of what I’ve eaten in case sometimes I’m ill and it’s related to food. I’m not the best at remembering to post everyday but I try.
Looking back at March we’ve eaten quite badly, and when I say we I don’t mean the royal we, I mean me and my husband! There’s been Dominos, Subway, KFC, and an Indian {if you live in Huddersfield, you have to try Natural Flavours, it is so good!} I had the double zinger burger at KFc but it wasn’t for me. There hasn’t been as many visit’s to Coffeeboy and I’ve been trying to put weight back on {I try to do this every month because I’m losing weight being so ill} but I did manage two days where I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner! Which is a real achievement. Although we haven’t really eaten that much chocolate this month. Even with it being Easter we only bought each other one egg and made chocolate corn flake cakes however, I’ve been pretty addicted to Lidl’s jelly beens.

What I’ve Bought…

I had a bit of a shopping spree just after the middle of March, you can see my recent purchases post of everything I bought. But I also bought a new battery and charger for my laptop hoping that would get it to work again, which sadly didn’t so that’s money down the drain. I also gave my husband money to get me a copy of Man From U.N.C.L.E from work and to buy a new washing pole for our front garden because the sun doesn’t get to the back so the washing hasn’t been drying. 
As a nice surprise my husband also bought me some goodies from Ann Summers, I seriously love their underwear!

Plans for April…

My husband has the last two weeks of April off and we’re planning to pop home to visit family and friends for a day but we need to come up with other plans too.
I need to decide what I’m doing about replacing my laptop as well as while I’m enjoying working on my husbands iMac I do really need a laptop for when I’m just not well enough to get out of bed. But I’m stuck between trying to get my laptop fixed, buying another laptop or buying a macbook pro! Decisions, decisions.
My Mum and Step-dad are meant to be visiting later this month and Ryan’s Dad and Step-mum might be visiting next week too.
