Where have I been, all your liii-iiives?! Couldn't resist, sorry! I had no intention of abandoning Little V but as ever, life got in the bloody way again! What with my illness, my uncle's situation, personal issues and complete lack of the internet, things have been a little fraught. With all this in mind, I thought I'd just waffle on for a while about what I've been doing and pray it doesn't put you all in a coma. Does that sound okay?!
Sofa ridden with a second mouthful of ulcers, I've found myself eating through books as if they're going out of fashion. When I read, I read! I've read three books in as many days and I've, surprisingly, enjoyed all of them. Everyone always seems to ask me about books, being an English undergrad and all, so I may give you a mini review of them all. Thoughts?! I'll get it up ASAP. If I'm perfectly honest, I haven't had a good reading session like that in so long; for some reason, reading seems a lot less appealing when I've got piles of it to do for university. Please leave your book suggestions for me in the comments! Onto more pressing matters, my uncle is in a much better state. Whilst I've been away, we did have a bit of a scare, leaving me in charge of the fort and family-less. However, we've now been told that, with chemo, he'll have at least six months. That, in itself, is an absolute godsend. I'm off to Scotland to see him in under two weeks and I cannot wait. He's an inspiration to all. Thank you to everyone who has put up with my worrying/incessant weeping. It means a lot to me and my family.
My diary is relatively busy these next few days - thank the lord. I'm having a movie and takeaway pizza night with Luke tonight before heading out for a road trip with my Fatherbear (and his white boy Bob Marley singsongs) to see my Grandma in Reading. She's not well (yeah, none of my family are ever quite 100%) so I'm hoping it'll cheer her up! By 'not well' I mean 'she's not allowed to move in order to save her foot'...Sometimes I wander whether old age is really worth it :/ On Tuesday, the whole world is ending. Well, by 'whole' I mean mine and by 'world ending', I mean my teenage years. I've suddenly turned into one of those women who despises the thought of their own age. I'm not sure I'm ready for my 20's but I'm relatively moved all the while. It seems crazy that the zoo trip was a year ago now! I'm not doing much for my birthday this year what with all the things going on but I'm hoping to get the family out for Indian food. I'm sure I'll post about my birthday next week!
What else?! I'm hopefully going to be around more soon because I'll have a bit more access to the net/enthusiasm now that my ulcers seem to have subsided for a while. I've now got the internet at my Grandma's house so I should be able to return to normal ASAP. I've missed the blogosphere so I'm going to bookmark a day next week to tackle everything blog related and slog through my emails (read: watch YT videos). Anyway, I'm off to enjoy greasy takeaway pizza, movies and my ever-understanding boyfriend. Thanks for reading - let me know what you've been up to in the comments! I'll be back sooooooon ♥
