It's fun that I can travel from the west to the east of the country in 2.5 hours. Namely to go and collect la Belle. She was at my mums for half term, being thoroughly spoiled by all the affection you can imagine. And more so seeing she is having an op on Wednesday. Belle doesn't know about it and to be honest, it's not worth the potential night sweats and anxiety if we do tell her. She is having a general to have some muscle taken from some abnormal tissue in her calf but when she had the same type of op, when she was six, they didn't have her under general then. Mark and I have sworn that after this, that's it. No more invasive investigation. The poor kid has really had it all. To top it off she has a heart scan due on the 18th April but that's just a bit of jelly and a hand tool to see how her prolapsed valve is getting along. I think that's it for this year, which is a relief.
So............ being home. I love my parents dearly and being home is really special for me. Luckily, my bro and JJ were there for a day so it made the trip more sweeter. I only had my iPhone for pics so here is my weekend in snapshot form:
Walking on the beach. My bro with his dog as I pushed JJ in his stroller with Belles. I love mums beach x
Belles and granny cuddle up
What was also an added bonus was that my dad suggested that my bro, Leigh, and I go out for a few drinks. Well, I just don't go out for drinks these days so I was a bit out of sorts on what to do!!!! Well, almost.
Here is my dad and bro, playing to the crappy iPhone Camera quality
And me with dad, it's struck me how very few pics I have with my dad :(
A few hours later, slightly inebriated and soaked to the skin (after a walk home in the rain), we play a quiz and get the munchies. How I got 13/20 is beyond me, I was well tiddly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had such a good niight/weekend but I knew I'd be in for a thick head the next morning. Ugh, I was right.
