{Nearly} Alive & Well

The last month has been hell. 

I would love to be able to admit that this was an exaggeration and that I'm embellishing my woes. It all started with me just feeling a little sick. Then it just worsened from there on out. 

It culminated in a very nasty visit to hospital on Friday, where they finally sorted out the cause of my illness. That wasn't before having to have a nasty procedure, losing a lot of blood, screaming for pain relief and passing out for a few hours. Lover-ly

I shall spare you the remaining gory details, and just say that I'm alive! I'm feeling much better already. It's like the black cloud has been lifted and I feel like my old self again. I'm eating real food, and wanting to go out in the sunshine and am able to actually clean my disgracefully dirty flat. Whilst my boyfriend has been a real gem recently, you can tell he learnt his standards of 'clean' from University halls. 

Now it's time to get back to real life. 

  • I can't wait to get back in the office and start my job again. The time at home was nice to start with, but now I'm just bored and raring to go!
  • I can get back to blogging! I've really missed blogging, and reading your comments and visiting your own blogs. I'm going to start posting more about my local area and help you to explore this stunning little corner of Wales that I live in, as well as a house tour and some more 'how to' posts now that we've nearly finished decorating! 
  • I can start running again. I haven't been able to run in two months, and according to my Doctor I have to take another fortnight off still. Boo! After that however, I'm going to restart the Couch 2 5k programme and let you know how I'm getting along week-by-week!
I am just so damn happy to be well again! I didn't realize how much I take my health for granted, and now have real empathy for those that are bed-ridden or house bound due to their illnesses. It's like only living half a life. 

What have I missed?! Please link me to any amazing posts you've read recently, or your own blog or just tell me what the weather has been like near you!  We have sunshine at the moment.
