Twas the Week Before Christmas...

My mother just rang, having a stress about christmas.  Fair enough, you may think, its a stressful time for anyone, but here is a short list of what has been going on in addition to your usual christmas kerfuffle.

  • My youngest sister has been trying to get on a plane, from Heathrow (news just in: she departed 25mins ago - so now 24hrs of worrying about plane crashes and it'll be fine)
  • My brother in law, who has been recovering beautifully from his spine operation, came out of hospital yesterday (in record time - YAY).  
  • My nephew who has been suffering from chronic ear infections has been ferried about to specialists and a grommit operation is looming on the horizon
  • The vet ballsed up my sister's dog's cruciate ligament operation and thought that this week would be a good week to fix it all up ("you'll only have to pay for the anaesthetic") - because what someone with an incapacitated husband and sick toddler needs is a dog that can't even get itself outside to go to the bathroom
  • I got food poisoning - and not just your normal 24hour type food poisoning; its been so bad that I haven't been able to function since Sunday, and in a great improvement managed to eat two tablespoons of boiled rice yesterday.  Apparently my gut has shed its lining, about which I have no idea, but I do know its really fricking painful.
It can only improve from here, right?

Oh good lord! The only way is up. Fingers crossed you get a stellar Christmas next year to make up for this one.

It has to get better. It doesn't sound like it could get any worse.
Merry Christmas!!

Oh and I was going to have a whinge because I have been to the supermarket 3 times in the last 24 hours - I'll just shut up now. (and go to the corner shop for the brown sugar and honey I forgot this morning)

Man, that sux. Will send you some good vibes of the telepathic kind. Not sure if it will help so will also have an early arvo bacardi & DC in your honour! At least the family Christmas can only get better from here on. Thanks for some good laughs this year BTW ... love ya blog-time! xx

yikes, hoping your luck changes for the better! More absinthe required in those cocktails I think (will kill the tummy bugs). Merry Christmas!
