Yuck - couldn't do it myself.

Okay so here it is - the worst job in the world must be looking up peoples snotty noses for a living.

I'm convinced this must be why specialists of this nature will charge an arm and a leg and ask you to sign over the deed to your house when you visit them.

I had my highly anticipated trip to the ear, nose and throat specialist today, what a joyful way to spend an afternoon.

I paid a weeks salary - well almost - to be told my nose / sinuses are stuffed, will require surgery (and thus will probably require me to sign over ownership of my house to fund it)

It's somewhat reassuring though to understand the reasons for my hideous breathing difficulties and years of sleep disruptions. Also explains why I'm so damn tired alot of the time. Seems my breathing problems could have a lot to do with it.

It also seems my nose has been broken at some stage in this lifetime. I remember a really painful injury as a child which involved me, a swingset and hard ground in-between but I never had medical attention for it. No reflection on you mum, it just didn't seem that bad. Obviously it was.

I now have to have a CT scan this week (not looking forward to that either) and then I have a two month wait till I go back, because the specialist has trips planned to France and then Glascow in June and July. Good to know someone is getting an overseas holiday with some of my hard earned dollars, even if it's not me.

So other than that, what's happening in my world? Mothers Day was delightfully normal (as long as your version of normal is expansive). Dinner with hubby's family and my boys is always challenging but nonetheless the meal was good and I got wonderfully spoilt.

I have so many things on the go at the moment which I'm trying to learn more about and I simply can not find enough hours to do it all in. I'm trying to learn how to use my Kindle as well as understand how the hell Google+ works in correlation with Blogger and all the other things that link up.

Does anyone else have problems with all the identities and how they appear and cross over, or am I the only dumb one at the moment?

That's all coupled with challenges at work, family, dogs, children and all the other hoo-haa, so I apologise sincerely if I have not replied to comments, visited many of you or done much of anything else lately.

Hope everyone one of you had a sensational Mothers Day whether with your own children or with your own mums. I think it's fair to say that my boys drive me absolutely crazy but I wouldn't change them for the world.

Cheers, Fi

  1. I'm glad you got spoiled for Mother's Day! I will keep you in my thoughts for your sinus troubles. Have a good week.

  2. Glad Mother's Day was a great one for you!! Ick too about the sinus/nose problems. Hoping they can get resolved without costing you an arm and a leg!


    1. Betty - everything these days seems to cost an arm an a leg. Ick says it all

  3. you always make me smile Fi with your down to earth, straight forward approach to life and living.

    Sorry about your nose! Glad you'll be breathing free! :)

    1. Sometimes that's all we can do - look at the bright side

  4. Wow, sorry to hear about your sinus/nose thing. At least it is figured out now so you can get it resolved and move on, right. Glad you had a nice Mothers Day, I know getting everyone together, all on the same page is definetly trying in our world too. We took a break Sat evening and took MIL out to dinner since we knew it was not going to happen on Sunday. I will start posting some pics soon of new house, decor, etc. Take it easy.

  5. Ohh and forgot to mention, I am not sure how Google + works either. I have a profile but don't use it much. Does not seem to user friendly.

    1. Glad its not only me - that's exactly how it is, not user friendly at all. I want to post as my blog name but now it will only use my full name so I have to figure out what to do to change it


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
