i have been very quiet both here on my blog, in my day to day life and also in my very soul..
just under two weeks ago my doctor found a lump in my left breast...
i rarely visit the doctors as i am lucky health wise and this was my very first visit to my new local surgery..
my doctor was also newly qualified..
i may have scared her with my sobbing..
from that visit it has taken under two weeks for the wonder that is the NHS to get me booked in to my nearest breast clinic which is where i was a few days ago...
before i go any further i have to say that i am all clear
one of the lucky ones
very very very lucky
i just wanted to write down my experience here and really shout from the roof tops about how wonderfully caring and sweet the hospital staff were ...
this minor blip in my road has really stopped me starting that winter nesting thing that i get every year, you know the feeling right?
the gathering of blankets, extra cushions and hot water bottles..
the cursing of a lack of a decent wood pile... every year the same
the draw towards bringing the entire forest inside the house as i know walking amongst the trees will get less and less as the daylight hours are stolen away by animal and household tasks...
i may be a little behind this year but i shall catch up..
although i am slightly regretting taking up the carpet in the day room even though it was a hideous colour and covered with all manner of nasty things dragged in on the feet of whippets, it did give a little warmth under the feet and softened the sounds of tap dancing hounds...
rug making is at the top of my to-do list
