Week 11:Post Op





Wow so I haven’t updated my blog in almost two weeks. Apologies for that guys. The past few weeks have been busy with finishing uni for Christmas and I haven’t had time to update.

Rather than give you a low down of each day over the past two weeks,I’ll just let you know the important stuff.

Uni update:

So I finished uni two weeks ago with a timed law assessment which involved me answering four questions about law. Once that was finished with I went for a celebratory drink with my friend at our course Christmas party,which was nice.

Due to a change of plan I ended up staying in Southampton an extra day. This resulted in me binge watching the last two series of secret diary of a call girl,(Welcome back Billie piper phase),seeing friends and ordering dominos. Ah student life.

I’m happy to say that I met all my deadlines despite having five weeks off for recovery. I’m now done work wise until I come back from New York. Wahoo! Which by the way,is 23 days away. Eeek!

Post Op update:

Not a lot has happened post op wise. It’s now been over 11 weeks since I had it done though! I’m starting to eat normally again which is great. I went to my Nan’s for a few days last week and found I could eat chocolate again. By that I mean biting into a galaxy bar. Yum!

I also managed to eat Pringles. Jaw is suffering now though so think I may have over done it a tad. Oops!

The bad news is I still can’t swallow pasta. I can chew it but it doesn’t go down very well. I did enjoy the meatballs I had tonight(Friday) instead though.

The bands are doing their job nicely. For now anyway,I think that’ll go out the window when I go to New York because I’ll constantly be eating.

Social update:

Speaking of New York,I met up with Lucy yesterday to fill her in on everything. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited,especially as she’s coming too. I’m excited to introduce her to my uni friends and experience a trip of a lifetime with someone else who understands. Bring on January 12th.

I’m off to winter wonderland this afternoon which I’m excited about as I’ve never been. Even though we’re not ice skating it will still be lovely to have a wander and get in the Christmas spirit.

Before all this though,I should probably explain last Monday.

I met up with Alice and we attended the premiere of Night at the Museum:Secret of the Tomb.

There,I met Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey which made me very happy. The part that made me more happy though,was that he recognised me from picture I sent to him on twitter that afternoon. How cool?

Anyway,it was a great day. Id forgotten how much I loved the premiere atmosphere,despite being really cold.

Looking forward to more in the new year.

Writing update:

In my last blogpost I mentioned I made a start on a story. I wrote 6000 words of it and then added a prologue. A few days later I went back and rewrote it,taking out the prologue and beginning in the action of the first chapter. Im now not sure which I prefer. I’m hoping to plan and give it a good sort in the new year to see if it’s something I believe in to carry on with. So,if the characters are there,now is the time to be heard. I hope to have a first draft of a book(whether it’s this one,or another),written by next December.

I also hope to be more productive in my blog writing and writing in general. I’ve slacked over the past few months with the sites I write for.

Ok so this blog post has started to turn into resolutions so I’ll stop there and write that another day.

I think I’m going to take a break from blogging everyday and go back to once a week instead. That way I’m not boring you with a daily routine as there really isn’t a lot to report at the moment. Not op wise anyway.

So every Friday I’ll put up a post about what happened that week. It may be post op related,it may not but I’ll make sure to include something in there for those of you who are still interested in it,despite it becoming boring.

I can’t thankyou enough to yjose of you who have read these posts. It means a lot,so thankyou.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and I’ll catch up with you on Friday,after the big day.
