Not been on to blog for a while but do read the posts.
Wonder if anyone has found the same as me over last couple of weeks..
While the snow was on the ground my hands and feet weren't too bad but as soon as the cold rain arrived I flared only mildy, but feet and fingers sore and my eyes (optician thinks I have sorgrens but RA nurse is dubious!!) are dry and gritty again, and that dreadful weariness and fatigue has returned or perhaps that's just the time of year!
My house is upside down as well as the renovations have started, new windows before Christmas, new door last week and new kitchen this week. My dining room and conservatory are full of kitchen!! How come a tiny kitchen (10 foot by 5 1/2 foot without the cupboards) can hold so much stuff? To add to that hubby has stripped walls in front room and backroom, dust everywhere but hopefully it will be worth it when finished. He is going to get decorators in when the dust is cleared and everything back in it's place. All of this made possible because we managed to sell his mum's house just before Christmas (she sadly passed away after a 7 month battle in July last year , and to be honest I would rather she was with us than the benefactor of all our home improvements ) Neil suffers spinal problems and me with RA (right pair aren't we?) so he is getting people in to do all the heavy stuff and decorating. At the end of all this we are headed for Florida (April) for a 2 week break with the kids, Dot always wanted to send them to Disney so that was top of the list of things to do, a special holiday for them from their nanny.
I just hope my mini flare goes as quickly as it has come, my GP has written to expediate my clinic appointment as it has been postponed 3 times since the last one and it has now been almost a year since my last review when he started me on leflunamide!!
Here's hoping that you all have a great 2013
