Why Hello there😀
I got a bit of good news in regards to my operation yesterday! My parents and I travelled up to London to meet my consultant for a check up and we were met with a positive outcome. Basically everything has gone as well as it could have gone as my knee is staying in the correct position when going from bent to straight. My parents were shocked that I had even let the doctor touch my knee after the many times I would cry and tense up beforehand. Funny how with one thing, anxiety can go. Anyway, I don't have to have another trip to London for another 6 months unless I need to chat to my doctor so I am incredibly happy and pleased that stage one is coming to an end in terms of hospital visits. I still need to go regularly to Physio and continue to exercise my muscles as my Hypermobility makes building muscles and healing scars a longer process to those without Hypermobility. Onwards and upwards though, I say!
Oooooh on our way home from London, I convinced my parents to stop off at Westfields for a short shopping trip. I ended up treating myself to a pandora heart safety charm and a Mac lipstick🙈 how cheeky haha. I am in love with the lipstick, it's the Cremesheen Hot Gossip - it's like a lipstick with a glitter sheen through it. I LOVE IT.
I just felt like I could justify a small spend on something nice after all this fuss over my knee. Plus it makes you feel happy going shopping and picking out something nice.
Before we actually went to the hospital appointment, we went for lunch in Pizza Express as we had just over an hour to spare. When we are going on the train to London, I like to have plenty of time to spare because of the stairs and I prefer to take my time. So, we managed to have a quick, yummy lunch! Mum and I had the "Bosco" salad with chicken - I'm sure that's what it's called. My dad had a Sloppy-something pizza which had spiced beef and some other stuff on. Oh and we also shared some Doughballs, I do love those.😍
I'll be posting again soon about how I feel I've come over the past few months as I'm hoping that other people who have had similar experiences may like to read how I have felt. Anyway, let me know if there are any MAC products that you are loving at the mo and if you like my new pandora buy!
