Life has been pretty good lately, if stressful.
Waz and I have been going through a worrying health related period. He's fine, pretty much got the all clear and just a follow up appointment in 6 weeks to ensure he's definitely fine and he doesn't have anything sinister at all. It's been hard though and taking a fairly serious toll on our some aspects of our relationship whilst at the same time bringing us closer together.
With this my step-dad has also been in and out of hospitals for tests. He's finally agreed to find out what actually is wrong with him. So far they have several avenues to explore because he has several possibly unrelated health issues. It's a constant waiting game. We have a bit of an argument on the phone about it the other day because I finally told him how I felt about living with not knowing what was wrong with him and him doing nothing about it for 5 years and how he doesn't know everything and he's just scared and I was proud of him for finally manning up about it but he didn't take it well and wound up putting mum on the phone.
She's coping well as usual. She's a stronger lady than she gives herself credit for.
We've had lots of social occasions - birthdays and things which have been welcome distractions and this will only continue.
Last weekend his parents were up which was lovely, if a bit exhausting. Weekend before that was Ann's murder mystery party. 1840s wild west extravaganza that was :D Yestereday was Leon's 80s movies themed party and Wendyhouse. I didn't make it to Wendy but I did get to dress up as Rachael from Bladerunner and that was pretty fun.
Work is still driving me a bit mad and Waz thinks the project he's working on is coming to an end so he's looking elsewhere.
Christmas planning is going well. I've decided to throw a Christmas party at ours because it was high time I hosted something! So I've got that to look forward to - plus I have Jay's 40th bash which falls in the middle of a 6 day stretch of annual leave. It is a weekend away at a castle and we're having a medieval style banquet and it's gonna be lovely I've probably posted about this already but I'm excited! I I am really in need of some time out not least to do Christmas prep/crochet/crafting and some very serious unwinding. I also have 2 days booked to make a nice 4 day weekend in a few weeks as well - thank goodness.
Not much else to report really.
