I have some news

For weeks and weeks I’ve been waiting for a phone call or letter from the hospital and the weird this is…. i said to Mum I had a funny feeling it would be today I’d hear and it was 😯 am I psychic or what.

So I am having my bladder removed in just under 2 weeks. After 7 years of it being a pain and rather dysfunctional, I’ll be glad to see the back of it.

If course I’m scared but it’s something I’m hoping will be the best thing to help me.

A friend who I’ve met through having bladder problems (not actually met she lives in the Isle of Wight) sent me this

I think it’s so pretty and it’ll be better to have that to look at rather than a bag of wee 🙈

I’ll keep you updated over the next week or so how my nerves are and how I’m preparing for it, I wanna try and still blog when I can in hospital.

Anyways it’s been a long day gonna hit the hay, whether I nod off quickly is another matter.

Today I don’t feel like doing anything (OK I did a bit)

I had a horrendous dream, screw that… it was a nightmare.

I woke up 2-3 times during the night which has made my eyes super tired today.

Its 9am at the mo, still in my pjs curled up on the sofa with a fluffy throw. I don’t intend staying in them all day though 🙈

I’ll keep you updated as the day goes on…

I had to wait in for my upgrade to come, so I couldn’t really do much as I didn’t want them to knock and leave it with a neighbour if I couldn’t get to the door quick enough.

It came about 2pm a Huawei P20 Pro. So I’ve spent most of the afternoon transferring my stuff from my old phone to my new one.

Mum’s a lucky one too as she has had an iPhone 4 for ages so she now has a Samsung S8.

I’ve just had a lovely bubble bath and jumped into bed, apparently a night time bath is supposed to help you sleep, fingers crossed.

Sorry it’s quite a boring post, promise the next one will have a bit more excitement to it.

A bit of Self reflection

It doesn’t hurt every now and again to sit down and think about what you really want.

Finding questions to answer to delve further into finding out who you are does no harm so that’s what i did.

Heres a few I’m going to share with you.

  1. What 3 words describe me best? Talkative, courageous and flirty
  2. What does my ideal life look like? Healthy, loved up and happy.
  3. What do i admire about myself? I manage to stay positive through all the health issues i encounter.
  4. What compliment do most people give you? That i have nice eyes.
  5. Who do you look up to most? My mum, she shows me what a strong person is and she helps me be one too.

I could go on and on but i know you’d probably get bored at some point.

I really do reccomend asking yourself questions like this as you will discover a part of you you never realised was there.

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend and heres to a great week ahead.

Treats, triumphs and a throwback

Today i actually took the bull by the horns and went out in my wheelchair…and not just any wheelchair but my electric one that I’ve had little confidence to go out on it of late. – if you didn’t know i suffer with temporary body paralysis so it’s much needed.

I also for the last 3 years haven’t had a TV in my room – because there was no ariel port until today i treated myself to a really good portable ariel and a new TV, all singing and all dancing. Im a happy girly.

Tried YouTube on it ( sophdoesnails)

Can’t bloody wait to shower, wash my hair and curl up, even though its been a sunny day it’s nippy nip nips.

Hope you’ve all had a good day.

I’ll leave you with a throwback pic since it’s Thursday

Cute wasn’t i in my christening gown.

Til my next post

Much love xx

Creative old soul

I have always loved getting super crafty and creative. I however lost my mojo with it last year and I’m just starting to fall in love with it again.

So this evening before I close my peepers I’m going to add at least 10 ideas to my DIY Pinterest board. Then once i decide what to do first then I’ll get buying some crafty bits.

Of course I’ll share what i make with you but promise you wont laugh.

Here’s one thing I’m definitely going to make my best friend with my own personal touch.

Nighty night my loves xx

Be inspired on a Monday

It’s rare on a Monday morning that you feel inspired.

So the thing to do is to get a list of uplifting things you want to include the night before aka Sunday . That way you’ll have an idea what to do with the week ahead.

I woke up in a happy mood even though it was peeing down outside. I wasn’t going to let that make me miserable.

I put some music on and got singing along as i done my writing.

A knock at the door came…it was the postie with a parcel of some underwear I’m going to be featuring on my main blog HOLZIELOVES in the next week or two. Im excited.

It fits a treat so that kept the smile on my face.

Well I’m going for an early night I’m chilly willy, so pjs and hot water bottle and bed.

Til tomoro my loves…night night xxx

Sleepy head show me my bed

Well i have done alot of sleeping today.

There is a reason for it though.

First of all my friend knocked the door last night and we talked into the early hours.

Always make time for your friends when they need you so they can return the favour if you ever need them.

I had slept in majorly, like 1pm. I haven’t slept too great this week so maybe it was catch up time.

Lack of food/drink because i haven’t mastered the art of doing that in my sleep caused me to have a headache.

After i was fed and watered i slept again and luckily the headaches nearly gone.

I bet you i won’t be able to sleep tonight for love or money.
