i hope everyone is doing well and not too flarey. i am doing very well,
i have just been to manchester to spend 2 nights with my uni mate anna, and then 2 nights with my boyfriends lovely mum in sandbach. it was so so nice to be able to chill out on the couch, watch some dvds and eat eat eat! i have put on 3 lbs and i dont give a shite! life is very good at the minute. the simponi i swear is kicking in already, i can shampoo my hair without feeling suicidal after, i put make up on- liquid eyeliner again!! i shaved my legs (finally!!- with not seeing my bf since sept ive totally let myself go!! well- that and the flares!! the last thing you care about whilst flaring is body apperance!) sorry im rambling again! i opened a tin of tuna with a tin opener..this was my biggest achievement i think! i literally could not believe it i was nearly in tears i was so happy!!! its amazing the little things that you appreciate when things like this happens
today i started my healthy eating buzz to try and stop eating bad foods and fizzy drinks! so far so good (just 1 jaffa cake so far 2day!!) i love healthy food so im looking forward to loads of fish and salads and hummus and ryvita and stuff like that! my downfall is mug of tea after mug of tea etc, and scones----> walnut and vanilla scones are like heroin to me since ive moved home........ need to stop with them... and the jjjaaaammmmmm mmmm drool!!
thursday evening is the start of my living well with arthritis course up in dublin, so for the next 6 thursdays i will get to meet people like me, i cant tell you how excited i am!
ooh and i got my interim report back from uni, i got 70.5% which i am very happy about, now i have to start my 8000 worder thats due in august but i want to have it done in the next 12 weeks so i can enjoy my summer.
i hope everyone is doing well and im not on this as much as i have been, as i have had to cut back my internet useage as i found myself being online for long long hours and it was becoming a problem so its been about a week now and im doing ok, more reading and doing other, more productive things... that facebook is a definite addiction and it sucks out your life and soul!!!
take care all you lovely people,
big hugs xxx
