And by ‘it’, I obviously mean ‘me’. Just checking in to say that despite the fact I’ve thought of a couple of posts over the last nearly-three weeks, I haven’t been able to connect them with a computer to get them posted. Don’t even remember what they were, now. Eh. But the last three weeks have been an epic flurry of getting two weeks’ worth of lessons prepared, written out, and resourced (for the duration of my sick leave), doing all the things I needed done before the end of term which was two weeks earlier than it should have been, cooking for an impending wedding, and then, of course, the surgery itself.
Let me tell you, tonsillectomies? VERY. NOT. FUN. Though tbh I don’t have a horror story (YET) like some peoples on the netz do. Ohmigosh, the terror. No, mostly I have just been literally zonked for the last five days, sleeping about 20 hours out of every 24 – which, I confess, has actually been awesome O:) I do love my sleep. Of course, this has only been possible because I have THE BEST HUSBAND EVER, who has taken (unpaid) time off work to be mum, dad, housecleaner, cook, nurse, etc etc etc – beacuse the 7-mth old still wants attention, and food, and nappy changes. Bizarre child.
I am rambling. What was I saying? Did I even actually have a point here? …
I think someone stole it. (Also, when you read that sentence and start having visions of someone trying to wear a point as a stole – is it even spelled like that? – you know the meds are kicking in and it’s time for a nap. Again.)
ANYWAY. Despite appearances, I think that I am a little better today than I was yesterday, although I still had to resort to the Painkillers Of Doom (which I didn’t on day 3, oddly enough), so hopefully the worst is over. That would be nice.
I was going to tell you about the awesome cooking I did for the wedding, but I think I’ll save that until after the actual wedding, which is this coming Sunday, and then there will be pretty pictures and everything, and maybe, y’know, actual coherency. I hear it’s recommended.
…And now, I’d conclude the post properly, but let’s face it: I don’t think there’s anything I can say here that will make this post magically cogent. And if segues are for the weak, then conclusions are for the lost. <3
