You may have noticed a distinct lack of posting, from me, lately. I apologise for all those that wait with baited breathe for my ramblings........you do, don't you!?
Anyway, I thought I would catch up, with an explanation.
I, sort of, lost my blogging mojo. I haven't been depressed, or down, I probably would've have written about that. I've just had so much going on in my life, I think I got stressed and forgot how to write.
A while back I mentioned, in a post, that my hubby was off work. He has had problems with his knees for as long as I've known him. In fact his first day off crutches, the last time he had a camera in his knee, was our wedding day. That will be 23 years ago, this summer! He has cartilage damage, that can only be repaired with an operation. The problem there is, the waiting list in the UK.
It could be May, at the earliest, before he is seen. In the mean time he is in pain, all the time. He also has arthritis in that knee, so until his op, we don't know what is causing the pain. He went off work, sick, just before Christmas. Doctors have now agreed that the earliest he will go back is, approximately, 3 months AFTER his op!
As you can imagine, this has led to some financial stress. He is the main wage earner. Thankfully, we have sorted that side now, and are not so panicked.
While he's been off, he has been a little happier. I think working (driving) in constant pain was seriously getting him down. He's been a great help with the boys, which has been very much appreciated.
Which leads to the other reason I've been a little stressed.
My tween has not settled into the new school environment and routine at all, it's been bloody hard work and utterly exhausting.
All I want to do is sleep.
My health has been bothering me, as I seriously struggle to lose weight, but again, I seem to be getting the balance right there *fingers crossed*.
That is why I lost my mojo. I think I'm back, well, I'm writing this......
I have continued with things like meal planning, as they have been a great help with the financial worries, I just haven't blogged it. So hopefully now normal service will return, especially as I have a real bee in my bonnet about all the parenting
orders advice, I keep reading.
I hope you'll stay with me, my mojo is back with a vengeance!
