Day 61 – 1st March – Went into town with mum and nanny today. Had a dander around the town and went into McDonalds for a Shamrock Shake. They generally only bring these out over St Patricks Day, and don’t bring them out in England so when I get home ad they have them out, I do enjoy them! It was nice to be able to out and enjoy some time with family 🙂
Day 62 – 2nd March – Started knitting today. Haven’t been knitting in years and mum does it quite a lot so I decided I was going to give it a go again. I’m not very good at it, and can’t really do a lot with it. But I can knit a scarf! I might actually get good at it and do it a bit more, but for now I’m content just trying to knit simple things haha. It’s meant to be something I’ve tried doing loads of times, but I’ve never managed to keep it up. So will see if I can manage it this time!
Day 63 – 3rd March – Have been doing this for TJ for about a week. He wanted me to draw something for his room but wanted something with a lot in it. I’m rubbish at putting pictures together, So I’m not as happy with this as I could be. But he loved it, and put it up in his room, so as long as he’s happy with it, I’m happy enough! I still like drawing though, but think I will avoid doing anything like this again.
Day 64 – 4th March – Took nanny for lunch today. She had originally wanted to go to McDonalds, but I wanted to take her for a proper lunch and McDonalds didn’t count as that. So we went to one of the local restaurants in Monaghan called Dinkins. It was really nice to be able to do it and we both really enjoyed our lunch. We both had sandwiches and a cake for afters. I don’t get to spend much time with nanny, and I had originally extended my trip for a few days because I wasn’t going to be able to get to see her otherwise, and despite having done that I wasn’t spending much time with her. So getting to do this was great.
Day 65 – 5th March – Flew home today. Went home from Belfast City which was something I hadn’t done before. I’ve flown from Belfast City before when I was originally moving to England, and once when I flew to Manchester shortly after moving. I quite like flying from Belfast. It’s quite a small airport and is a lot easier to get around than Dublin airport. Mum and Nanny drove me up and I tootled through security and got myself something to eat. Was nice to be able to not have to worry about buses and stuff. I much prefer being able to get lifts but sometimes the only option is the bus.
Day 66 – 6th March – Back home and back into the normality of appointments. Today was endocrinology. it was my first appointment with them, and I’m not feeling as if I got any straight answers from them. The only firm answer I got was that I don’t have an insulinoma as Dr N suspected which was a relief. But things are still very confusing to me. He spoke about my adrenals, the steroids, my hypos and other things. But none of it made sense. They also haven’t written the clinic letter from the appointment yet, and this is now months on. I have chased it up several times but heard absolutely nothing.
Day 67 – 7th March – Went for pancakes with my friend Chris today. Chris stayed overnight last night and i’ve not seen him in ages. He’s from Belfast and I went to school with him when I was about 10. He’s my oldest friend and even though over the years we’ve lost touch a few times, we’re still best friends. He’s been there for me through some really rough times and I love him to bits. We’ve gone out a few times but we work better as friends and I’m happy with things like that. But there’s a place near us that do the most awesome massive crepes. You can get all sorts of different fillings in them and they’re amazing. Was good to be able to get out and have some time with him!
