Got all excited (well, ish!) on getting a letter from the hospital this morning, only to discover it wasn’t a surgery date but rather a note saying it would be ‘usual’ to send me for a vocal chord check and then schedule the PTH removal. Urm… I’ve been on this waiting list for 2 months now, already had my pre-op – why the HECK am I hearing about this now?! So, just hoping this doesn’t push everything back – have a sneaky suspicion this is one of those fudge-the-waiting-list-time things, but that just makes me angry so no point in thinking that now! I’ll ask at Maggies when I’m there next week.
And sigh. I just want it over with!! Sniffle.
Anyway. Trying to stay positive – this is another little bit of ‘holiday’, right?! I refuse to feel guilty about being off work, still, as while I think the levothyroxine *might* be working a little, I’m still largely knackered. Yesterday was a looooong, albeit lovely, day. Dentist went fine, sm enjoyed pottering about shops with me, and being included in the post-opera meal. She also liked the show the best of us all – I like it for being a bit different, and it’s only an hour. K was pretty bored, alas, was quite surprised she’d joined tbh.
I suppose it’s now in my head that I should be looking to do something other than sitting around waiting – that feeling is what’s making me wonder if the tablets are starting to work! So, I’ve signed up to a freebie 5-day novel outlining workshop via email (oh, SL – in case you’re interested: http://www.daniellerollins.com/5-day-outline-challenge/) which starts on Monday, might get me moving a little on that front. Tons of ideas to play with, including a new one seeded from an online writing forum’s “Why don’t you see more middle-aged heroines?” and listening to interviews with the not-20-something cast of Big Little Lies.
I’ve also just got a NetGalley proof of a 30-day ‘Everyday Watercolour’ course book, which also might get me moving on a hobby I’ve wanted to develop for years. So, silver linings and all that. Ho-hum!
Anyway, wet weekend ahoy, so plans largely revolve around crashing out a bit tonight (after yesterday, the groceries have near killed me!) and depending on how house moves (not mine, obvs!) and cinema plans pan out, a weekend of reading and catching up on reviews. Have a good one, folks!
