January 2016

Over the next few months I'll be catching up on the 7 months I went AWOL blogging,with lots of photographs and just a little journalling :)
 I struggled last year with major feelings of inadequacy and then I heard both these phrases on the same day so made my own little meme for 2016 :)
 Leonie Dawson Shining Year planner. This was quite hard, but actually it helped me really take stock of my health - and since this I've already lost 8lbs and 5" around my middle thanks to the Whole30
 Planning - incorporating the Bullet Journal system, Leonie Dawson diary, and Whole30 (to say nothing of work, Ella, fostering, shoes and 101 other things!)
In November I had the most intense pain ever. For the first time in 25 years I actually asked Jeff to take me to A&E! Thankfully it passed but left me jaundiced! Scans and blood tests confirmed it is an unhappy gallbladder. And today saw the Consultant who says it needs to come out - which was fine until I saw this cartoon and now I actually feel sorry for it LMAO! 
 Thought it was time I updated my profile pics - took Jeff too many attempts but we got a respectable one in the end - hmmm, grey hair sneaking through, I suppose was bound to happen!
 Been using the trains more recently, which makes for a much less stressful journey for my head and my foot, except when you see that train - yeah that one right there - and you realise it's leaving the station and you have a half-hour wait in the cold and dark!
 Went with Jeff, Ella and Joy to our annual trip to see the Quince Players Pantomime - as good as always :)
 Photograph from Ben - so envious!
And another one, boys with their Landlady's dog :)
