It has been a long while since I blogged. I guess I am trying to embrace life as much as I can that I just don’t come on here much to blog.
I am currently suffering with a sore throat and swollen gland, no idea what happened there.
Anyway, kidney life for me is still on the up. My last appointment I was given the heads up for carveries and things that I couldn’t eat at the very beginning of transplant. Mum recently had an appointment to see how she is doing with her one kidney, and her kidney is at a function of around 55% which apparently is okay. The last thing I would want is to see my Mum in the position that I was in, its awful.
My energy levels aren’t great, I still suffer with restless leg syndrome too. Many symptoms I had when I was ill. I still have but obviously I am a lot better than what I was. I am worried if I am made to go back to work as I feel like I couldn’t even last a day with my energy levels.
I have check ups every 3 months or so at the minute and my next appointment is next Tuesday on the 9th to find out how things are going. I have eaten so badly recently as my partner and I went away for a few days to Thorpe Park, LEGOLAND and Windsor Castle and their is not a healthy restaurant in site at such places and so its been pretty much fast food every day. We did come back to something amazing and that was collecting or baby Chihuahuas, yay.
I haven’t actually written here at all. My Girlfriend Kayleigh and I took the plunge and got a house together. I no longer live in Norwich, Norfolk anymore but I live in Suffolk (Location Disclosed) in our lovely 2 bedroom Victorian terrace house. Its been an amazing time so far. 20th March was our move in date so it will be a grand 2 months this month since we moved into our house.
Our living room is Mexican Corona Furniture theme, and the colour scheme is Purple, Black, Cream and Charcoal. It all goes together really well. Our Dining room also has the same colour scheme and Mexican Corona Furniture. The kitchen is cream, black and chrome. Our bedroom is Shabby Chic design, Bathroom is sailing boats, life houses beach theme and our spare room is Brown Furniture and red, cream colour scheme.
Our garden was a mess, and had thousands of weeds so Kayleigh and I had completely blitzed the garden, discovering patio and flower beds, we pulled up a massive bush and over time killed and pulled up weeds and stinging nettles. We had the help from Kayleigh’s Grandparents to take all the rubbish to the dump. Kayleigh and I bought some wood chip and neatly covered the flower beds, we then bought a selection of pretty colourful flowers and potted them. The garden is looking very tidy, and we can’t wait to do a BBQ out there soon.
Many people have come to visit us in our new home and everyone says how lovely and quirky it is and has such a lovely happy homely feel to it. Yay, for no negative energy!
I must actually bring this down as on the 10th March we lost our Chihuahua Milo, I am not sure if I ever blogged about him but he literally was my everything, he was my shadow and I took him everywhere. I needed him as much as he needed me but as you know life throws some shitty things at you and he was taken away from me and Kayleigh way too soon.
Kayleigh and I have almost been together 9 months now, I can honestly say I am totally in love with her. She is everything I ever wanted. She is fiery but romantic, loving, and fun and I am happy when I am just in her company (which is everyday now lol) I def can see us getting married and having children in the near future, we talk about it all the time. We are totally loved up, since moving in together it is like we are in our honeymoon period all over again yet this time we are so in love with each other. Kayleigh has become one of the most affectionate people (baring in mind she wasn’t before lol) she always wants cuddles lol, proper little princess. I love her dearly and honestly couldn’t imagine my life without her.
I am currently sat here with our dogs asleep on the sofa next to me waiting for Kayleigh to arrive home as she is on a late today. I just want to get in bed and go to sleep to be honest lol.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my catch up. I will blog soon.
