Morning all and a very happy new year to everyone who reads my ramblings and rants. I feel like I should say sorry for not blogging for so long but there have been strange goings on here.
It has been exactly 48 days since I blogged last and my last post talked a lot about going back to work and my fears concerning returning to the work place after 18 years. I haven't changed my mind and am hoping to stumble across my calling any time soon. The past couple of months have been....................Well.............How can I put it.................Shit to be honest.
After having a tooth out back in November I developed the most horrendous jaw pain which was 24hours of constant give me more drugs mind numbing excruciating pain...................I won't bore you with all the details but you get the drift. The final conclusion after seeing the specialist and the words "Tumour" and "Cyst" being launched at me was that it was just taking my jaw a long time to heal and the possibility that I have started grinding my teeth at nighttime...........................A night time mouth guard has been suggested which along with the Tena Ladies, thick socks for bad circulation and a dodgy back will make me feel and look totally sexy.........How will Mr DG keep his hands off me.....................This is the question I find myself wondering.
As Christmas approached I started to feel a little bit better and the tray of pain killers, Antibiotics and various other paraphernalia was put to one side in place of Wine..............This seemed to not only numb the pain but worryingly made me feel better.
Just as I thought things were on the up we very sadly lost Mr DG's much loved Nan. To say we were sad was an understatement and Christmas really seemed to be pointless, the kids were not coping at all with it and we decided to pull ourselves together and really make an effort to enjoy the time we had together. After all there is no way she would want us to be sad at her most favourite time of the year and although we missed her and our hearts ached we remembered her in our own way on Christmas morning.
As we woke up on New Years Day we smiled at the thought of a spanking brand new year stretching out in front of us. This is the year The Female Teen aka HRH goes off to University and that is the most exciting thing ever for her. The Male Teen aka Sparky is about to choose his options and the realisation of hard work is poking its head around the corner almost goading him.
Mr DG and I have become Dry Athletes for the month of January and so far so good although I almost caved last night when I found out how much flowers are for a funeral............................
I am so excited for my blog this year and am in the process of designing a spin off series called I'm In A Uni Daze which will be useless to most of you but to others who have Teens about to start the daunting path of University decisions I am hoping it may come in handy if not just to make you laugh as I fumble my way through it pretending to know what the hell is going on.
So, there we go............................My back to blogging first post. I am sorry if it has been a bit depressive and can assure that normal service will return very soon.
Hoping you are all well and haven't forgotten me.
Lots of Love
Hi lovely. Aw I knew you were having a tough time during the last couple of months of 2014 but this was really sad to read. Glad you're seeing the positives already about 2015. I really hope it's a fantastic year for you and your family - you really deserve it! Love David xxReplyDelete
Bless your heart David, hopefully fingers crossed things will start to improve. Happy New Year to you too my lovely friend xxxDelete

Aww you poor thing, what a rough few weeks - am sorry for your loss and the toothache sounds horrendous. Lets hope 2015 is bright and shiny for you! And yes, funeral flowers- when my Grandad died last year I was gobsmacked at the price, and he would have been furious at the waste of money as he would have seen it, but we had to have them, would have felt weird without any at all!ReplyDelete
Thanks lovely Sonya, i can't believe how much they charge but as you say you can't not have them can you. I think i might have it written somewhere that i would rather people donate money to a worthy charity xxxxDelete
Really sorry to hear that you have been having such a hard time but definitely hope 2015 brings better things, all the year through.ReplyDelete
Lets hope so Sarah, thanks so much and a happy new year xxxDelete

So sorry about your loss and there is nothing worse than toothache. My nine year old had to have a tooth out due to an abscess and he was much braver than I would have been!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, poor thing and very brave too. I don't know how i would of coped if it hadn't been for very strong painkillers so goodness nows how a little one coped with just Calpol or similar xxxDelete
So sorry that 2014 had to end the way it did. Here's to a happier 2015!ReplyDelete

I can't tell you the number of times that I've clicked on your blog hoping to see a new post but been bitterly disappointed. I for one am thrilled you are back! However I'm so sad at all the bad news going on in the DG household. So very sorry to hear about Mr DG's Nan - she must have been very special to you. Really hoping your tooth is on the mend now - what an ordeal! x xReplyDelete
Oh Suzanne you are such a sweetie, Thankyou so much for bearing with me and my little blog. Happy new year to you and your lovely family xxxDelete

You have my sympathy - I had a similar pain when I was pregnant with Eliza over christmas which the doctor / dentist put down to stress. I had the fetching mouth guard too. Glad you are feeling better and welcome back, we have missed you xxReplyDelete
