|I think this is the very bed that Gordon has!|
Unfortunately, over here you're not allowed to visit on the day of the op. so he won't see a friendly face today (although, I must say, the nurses were really all very nice, and being English, he had a slight celebrity status). And I should be able to get him out tomorrow morning at around 9.00 so he'll be back home soon enough.
In the meantime, today is the 31st October, in case you didn't know. Over here, Halloween isn't a very big thing, thank goodness. I never grew up with halloween, and not having any kids, I've never really seen the point. Bah, Humbug!!!
But the 31st of October is the last day of the BLOGTOBERFEST. HOOOOOORRRAAYYYYY.
I feel as if there should be a fanfare or something. Is there a party? A bottle of champagne? When do I get my medal? I'm happy to report that I have managed to blog every day - I'm not being smug or showing off or anything, but I am very satisfied. I'm just one of those sad people who have to be in control of something. It's been hard thinking of something interesting (? you may disagree that I achieved this) to write about every day and it has taken a lot of time. But I am showing improvements on both fronts. I have learnt not to agonise over every work, every phrase, until I think it's just right I would've still been doing day 5 now! . Also for the first time ever, my husband has shown an interest, helping me to find topics to ramble about. I have some new followers too - not many but all welcome, and I have found some great new blogs to follow. So all in all, a great success on my part. No doubt normal service will be resumed, and I'll be posting less frequently. But thanks to you all for sticking with me
Oh I fogot to add that there was a 2.2 magnitude earthquake about 50 kms away from here today. I didn't feel anything, but it's news to be that we have then. Thankfully there is no chance of tsunami this far away from the sea!
