Sorry it's been ages since I came on here. Had loads going on and not really had a chance to write properly but I have been lurking and keeping up to date with everyone!
Hope everyone is well!
Very quick update on the Takers household.
Takers had another op on his foot and had it reconstructed again. He got an infection within days and was in/out of a&e a couple of times before finally being admitted for a few days to get it under control. He's on the mend now though, foot still swollen but he's walking and driving again at last (been 3mths!)
TJ is a little sod at the best of times and certainly well prepared for the terrible twos. He goes to nursery once a week now and absolutely loves it. Still talks in his own language with a few english words thrown in when he feels like it! He's been checked by Takers consultant and is showing signs of having the same foot problem his dad has but we have caught it early so he'll probably be getting insoles when he's 3 if his ankles still fall in.
My motherinlaw is still a bitch :roll:
SBJr is currently lying on the sofa with his foot elevated after he hurt it yesterday. Yet another trip to a&e for a foot related problem :roll: Thankfully it wasn't fractured but soft tissue damage and will be fine in a few days.
Me - well, lots to say really. I've finally qualified as a Weight Watchers leader and now run 5 meetings a week. It's hard work but worth it and I love it. Things have been manic with Takers not being able to do anything after his op and so I've had to look after him, the boys, work part time in the pub and get my business running - am shattered!
I've been diagnosed today with moderate depression and given some pills. I'm struggling to get my head round it all to be honest but Takers and a mate made me go to doc. My dad suffered depression for years and I've always said I'd never end up like him so I've been trying to deal with it myself but as Takers says I'm rapidly getting worse then I've given in. Feel really ashamed if I'm honest, weak and pathetic but then I guess thats down to the illness too.
Not going to start the pills until after Christmas though - can't drink with them :lol:
Gosh - what a downer to end on!
Hope everyone is fine and dandy. Gotta dash cos just seen the time and need to get to my meeting tonight!
Love to you all and I've missed you!!!
