Hi everyone! I’m very sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been extremely busy and also have not had any internet for a while and then no stable internet until now! (I’ve moved house, so internet issues are understandable right?)
So, I have been feeling generally good lately but life really is trying to test me at the moment. I’m having a really tough month. So firstly, at the very end of last month, I was in a car accident (don’t worry nothing too serious I’m okay, just got a little bit of whiplash/muscle pain) – it has been really stressful dealing with this and trying to get courtesy cars sorted and fighting the liability on it as I wasn’t to blame etc… it’s been a very hard few weeks with that. Thankfully they are going to repair my car (it was a huge repair bill, I was worried it would be wrote off!) and I should get it back in a couple of weeks.
I had a trip planned to go to the Harry Potter Studios with my mam, but unfortunately the night before we were meant to go my mam had a really nasty fall, she hit the ground face first and has taken a chunk out of her nose and a big gash in her head. We had to call an ambulance and get her rushed to the hospital, after they had cleaned her wounds and checked a few things (she had a CT scan!) she was then transferred to another hospital to see a plastic surgeon – she may loose a little part of her nose unfortunately. We waited 45 minutes before the ambulance arrived and before they got to us she actually lost consciousness, as you can imagine – this was really scary. She is on the mend now, healing but very very sore!
My mam insisted I go on the trip anyway as our hotel and tickets were non-refundable. So, Richard and I set off the next day (a bit later than planned as we slept in, we didn’t get home til about 4am the night before!) and it took us about 5 hours to get to the hotel, with a break for food. We had a lovely evening, went out for tea and when we getting ready to go to sleep I checked the tickets. They had been booked for the day before! What a nightmare! 😦 It was too late to call anyone so I had to wait until the next morning to ask if anyone could help us. I was told there was nothing they could do and that the place was fully booked so I couldn’t even buy a new ticket for the day! He did mention to call back in case there was a cancellation. So we did, the next lady was way more helpful, although there were no cancellations she did exchange my tickers into gift tickets so we can rearrange for another day.
There were a few things we could have done with out day instead, there was a zoo nearby etc… but we were both feeling pretty fed up and disappointed – I was exhausted physically and mentally, so we just drove the 4 – 5 hour journey home, we got back about 3:30pm yesterday.
I was feeling pretty down about everything, just when I thought – “right things have to go well now, I’ve had so many major bad things happening that something good has to happen, or they have to stop now right?” My mam had this fall! I couldn’t help but feel pretty negative and usually I’m normally pretty good at picking out the goods things and feeling positive. Like now I know that it could have been worse, it is pretty bad but worse things could have happened.
At least I still get to Harry Potter studios with my mam when she is feeling better, we are going to go with my sister too which will be great!
Anyway, I’m feeling much better now, I streamed this morning (yes on a Saturday!) It was a test stream as our internet provider said they had fixed the issues we’ve been having. It was really fun, I thought I’d just be streaming about 10 minutes just to check things over and make sure everything was running smoothly. I ended up streaming for about an hour and a half. I have missed streaming so much and probably needed it more than ever this month! So, glad to be back – it always cheers me up FIND MY TWITCH CHANNEL HERE!
I felt I needed to vent a bit, and I have! I’ll check in again soon!
