Update to my Rollercoasterride Life

In the turmoil that has been my life recently, the days passed me by in a whirl and I really believed I had posted a new entry on the weekend but seems to have been the weekend before!

I have been sick for the past few days with a very strange ailment, truth be told. I suffer horribly from reactions to stress and on Sunday ended up at the ER with a severe reaction that seemed much like a horrible mouth infection but it was just from the stress. Cost me a huge bruise on the arm where I asked the doctor to try and insert a canula though he'd warned me already that the veins were too tiny where I was pointing for him to try (I couldn't open my mouth, talk or eat and drink so was all miming and writing on my phone and handing it over to receptionist, nurse and doctor. Sounds hilarious but it actually wasn't.

Anyways, now that you know how come I totally didn't realise another weekend had come and gone before I wrote a post, I will say this one thing, as it is quite big. I am moving this week. It was quite unexpected and causing me even some more stress and worry but hopefully all will be good once I settle down. One thing that has come out of the move is that it has caused me to realize just how much stuff I do have. Considering I hope to eventually move to a flat big enough for me and my son, rather than just a room in a flat share as I am going to be doing for now, I cannot remove all my stuff then have to re-buy it all when I get my own kitchen etc. However in general I am having to downsize a lot of my things and look carefully at what should remain. As a result I am for the first time even thinking more practically. Will I realistically ever reuse my son's old clothes? I am in no relationship, let alone sure I will be in one where both me and a partner will want another kid. Which might turn out to be a girl after all! The one thing is I am trying to sell rather than give away my son's old things. Well, old they aren't really. I came across so many barely worn articles that it is a lesson in itself to stick to practicality on shopping trips. Add to which not even his school books are that worn! At least the ones that were not used for writing in. So I hope to get around to photographing and posting those too for sale on Facebook.

I am off now as it is close to midnight and with my sick leave over, I return tomorrow to a full day's work, therefore needing an early start to the day. I leave you with a promise that I will update you all about my move and what I learn from it throughout this coming year of flat-sharing and having most of my life packed into one room. Till next time, good night.
