Blogging-silence

I don’t know whether any of you have noticed, but there has been some ‘blogging-silence’ for a while.

And this time it hasn’t been anything to do with my 2 little boys.

I decided that I needed a break from being mummy for a while, so had a week away from them, unfortunately this was not as much fun as it sounds, as it involved a lot of pain, a ride in an ambulance (which was being manned by someone from Junior paramedics, or so I was told, I’ve never seen it!)  6 nights in hospital along with lots of tests, scans etc.

I am now home to 2 little boys who I am informed were really well behaved while I was away (they are making up for it now!) and am waiting an operation. I can’t get used to the fact that I am needing a couple of hours nap a day at the moment, it just isn’t me, I am used to being active all day, ok a lot of the time maybe running around in circles normally, but at least it’s running and not napping.

 

So I have a provisional date of the 12th April to have my gall bladder out, I know a lot of people end up waiting years to have this operation and this is all happening within a month, but I think this probably shows just how serious things got.

At the time I really didn’t realise how ill I was, and all I keep hearing from people at the moment is

I had that, it’s really painful

and yes I agree the pain really is bad, but for me it was the complications that were involved and why I am having to wait for the operation and not have it sooner.

People had started to say I was looking a little yellow at the beginning of the week, by the end of the week no one could miss it. However even the jaundice it seems was nothing compared to the Pancreatitis, when they said to me before I was taken to a ward that over the next few days I could end up in intensive care, I don’t think I was really listening to them, over the next few days when I was dosed up on morphine, it still didn’t really sink in.

Now that I am home and still struggling to function to what I class as my ‘normal’ level, I am starting to realise just how serious things were.

So I am just taking each day as it comes and making the most of playing with my boys before the next stay in hospital.

Ok, so todays post isn’t going to be very interesting, no pretty pictures yet

but to put it simply I have found a recipe for pancakes, and lost it, and found it and lost it and …. well you get the idea

so I have found it again now

and I am going to write it down now before I lose it online somewhere again

I will be back later to let you all know how it goes and add it to my recipes list

  • 4oz plain flour
  • 1teaspoon baking powder
  • 8fl oz preferred milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

mix it all together and fry like a ‘normal’ pancake

If anyone has any advice on whether this recipe will work, or any changes to make it would be great to hear them

Wish me luck, hopefully Tim will get edible pancakes later

Of royal descent – another Sammyism

crownThe other night there were some noises coming from Sam’s bedroom, I went to see him to find him sat up in bed saying

my pajamas are covered in blood

as you can imagine Mummy started scanning his pajamas quickly to see what had been going on, while I was doing this

and my duvet

ok something major has been going on

and my curtains

Oh My I start thinking there must have been some sort of massacre in my sons room while Mummy and Daddy sat downstairs. Now with all this blood around I would have thought I would have been able to see some, but no nothing that I can spot.

So not to the quick Mummy investigation!

I start enquiring, what has he done? what does he mean? etc, etc

the response had me in hysterics

it’s from my French lesson at nursery Mummy

so it seems that we are of royal descent and have blue blood in our house or for anyone who hasn’t worked it out yet Sammy sometimes wears blue pajamas, has a blue duvet set and blue curtains, or in french BLEU not blood!
