Trying to stay positive 👍🏼
I know I have posted a lot this week but I felt like I've had a lot to say. That's one nice thing about having leanneonlife - I can just start typing about myself or other topics whenever I fancy.
I was going to update you all on my exciting life as a sofa-bound individual this time. It has been exactly a week since my operation and I'm doing okay.
Having an operation is weird. The whole feeling of being put to sleep/waking up somewhere you don't recognise is a bit surreal. When I woke up I was trying really hard to bend the leg I had operated on, until I eventually realised that I had a cast to prevent me doing that strapped to it. I blame the huge amounts of morphine😉
Gosh. I've slept sooooooo much this week. The first few days I came home I was having long naps during the day and then sleeping really well at night - it became a bit of an expectation that I would be asleep😂
I am getting slightly lonely and bored though. My family have been amazing. And my extended family have visited as it has been a long awaited operation since I was very young. But I do miss my uni friends. Especially since many of them are back in Canterbury and partying! I just miss Charlotte (my housemate) knocking on my door, asking me if we can go eat breakfast together in the morning, or should I say early afternoon (only sometimes) 😂 and chats with Éilish and group trips round the corner to Asda. I became soooooooo used to seeing everyone every day that it feels slightly weird now.
One great thing about being home is that I get mums home cooked meals😍 we had fish pie tonight which is one of my all time favs but the other night we had Thai Green Curry which was loooovely. It's nice having freshly cooked meals instead of chicken nuggets and chips!
However, I'm growing to hate the inability to do everything for myself. Everyone is saying I should get a bell to ring whenever I need something. All I want right now is to have a bath and get myself a drink. It feels odd bossing my mum about. Plus my nans coming over to 'look after me' tomorrow and I can't bear to keep asking her to get me things!
Sooooo that's all things me at the mo. I'd love to hear from you: tweet me @leanneonlife for any questions or ideas of topics to batter about!
Ciao for now,
