This week has been a pain in the bum mostly....

This week my Word of the Week is.....


I bought Stu a jigsaw for his birthday....One of the saws not the puzzles.....hehehe! He used it for about 30 seconds and it just stopped working.....Such a pain! I had to box it back up but Amazon were quick to arrange collection and the refund.....He's not got one from Argos and it does what it's supposed too......

This week was the anniversary of my girls heart surgery.....I got a bit emotional on Monday....I kept watching the clock thinking this is when we did this, this is when we did that, this is the time Becky came out of surgery.....Thank goodness I was busy on Tuesday so I didn't have to think about the six years since Ellie's surgery.....I thought 6 years ago when I was going through it once it was all over I wouldn't get emotional....I still do. 

Becky finally got the tooth taken out....So she now has the space she needs for her braces to be put in next month......She was so brave and hardly complained....Well she couldn't really as she was so numb it took her hours to be able to speak properly.....hehehe She did find it funny that she couldn't even say her name.....Bless her! 

I finished of the back to school shopping.....Hooray! It pained me to pay sixty odd pounds but everything is bought and the kids are all ready to go back to school.....They have less than a couple of weeks left of their holidays.....We have got hardly anything we wanted to do done.....I have been having lady problems and I've been feeling pretty rubbish....I have the contraceptive implant in and I rarely have periods usually....Maybe one every 6 months or so.....The last 5 weeks I have and the period pain has been horrible.....I've been to the doctors and it's not normal but it's nothing to worry about.....They gave me the option to have it removed or leave it a few weeks and see how I get on....I've been using the implant for about 4 years (I got it changed last year) and it has been fine....I hope this is just a short term thing....I don't think I could cope with being so tired when the kids are back at school.....I've actually been falling asleep on the settee watching TV on an evening and that never happens....

The biggest pain in my backside this week has been the toilet.....We thought it was blocked.....Stu had his arm down it and couldn't feel any blockage.....Eww! So her started throwing buckets of water down it to try and dislodge anything....I went outside to put something in the bin and saw all the drains overflowing.....We lifted the metal drain cover up and it was full to the top with water and poo....Double Eww! We spoke to the water board and they sent someone out to have a look......He looked stuck a stick down and found a blockage of wet wipes...Grr! If I've told the kids once I've told them a million times....Wet wipes in the bin not down the toilet....I am so glad it was easily fixed as I didn't fancy paying for someone to unblock it....

So this week has been a bit of a pain.....It all hasn't been bad though....Stu had a great birthday, a few competition prizes arrived....I won a breakfast box from Hovis with some bread, jam, juice & honey.....We ended up having breakfast twice on Tuesday....hehehe My nephews mother has been in touch and she is coming up to visit next weekend & is calling in to pick my great aunt on the way too.....Yay! Ellie is on with making a lot of wish lists her birthday is next weekend and she's counting down the days....

  5. I have to confess when your word was pain and you had bought a jigsaw, I feared the worse - phew! I am not surprised you were emotional about the girl's anniversaries, you probably blocked it out at the time and now you know everything is ok, it's hit you - it makes for emotional reading never mind living it, your are amazing. I hope you get your lady tummy sorted soon xx

  8. Well done on your win! Sorry to hear that this week has been a bit rubbish though. I bet the anniversary of your children's surgeries was emotional, what a tough time. Glad your toilet is unblocked now and I hope that you are feeling better/less tired soon.
