Ok, so absolutely shattered (not helped by the fact the kidlets came launching in at 3am!) but I've got through 2day with very little stress & worry. My other half has been a star, washing this, cutting that, opening this etc & the kids have been bouncing around like mad banshees while various family members have popped in & out exchanging gifts & I've had a REAL smile on my face, not a fake 1, trying 2 keep every1 happy & masking the pain, but 1 that actually reaches my eyes!
Yeah, I ache all over & I'm bloody knackered. My body is crying out 4 a long hot soak (which I will b doing shortly) but I think I can safely say, this is the best I've felt in a long time. Ok, I may suffer 2morrow (can't rest up 4 the day though as it's over 2 the in-laws 4 Christmas Day part 2) but I have renewed hope & mental strength that I'm getting back 2 my old 'Lupus Arse kicking' self. The spoons r firmly back in my drawer as I feel I have way more than I need. Feeling like the old 'Sher Sher' again FINALLY & boy, I've bloody missed her ;0) I'm looking 4ward 2 how I WANT 2 b, not back 2 how I USED 2 b & I'll bloodywell get there even if it kills me (obviously hope it won't lol!). Christmas wishes & renewed strength 2 u all x
