Starting with the statement "It has been a month since my last post" make it sound like a bit of a confession, but I've had a busy month, well actually, it's probably more true to say that I have had a peculiar month.
After my stay in hospital I was under house arrest for two weeks unable to leave due to the piles of various tablets blocking the door. The first week wasn't so bad, because I did feel unwell and my being at home therefore felt somewhat justified. The second week was harder to cope with and by the end of the week I broke my curfew and went to work. I should have gone in on the Tuesday, I would have liked to seen korruptor off.
Then the following week my parent were visiting to take charge of the little one while I whisked Mrs Teeth away for surprise wedding anniversary trip. A long weekend in Venice. This meant that although I was at work nearly a full week, stuff going on around was certainly at the forefront of my thoughts. When I got back to work the following Tuesday I felt like I could finally settle down to some sort of routine again.
And I could have if I hadn't' developed a sore throat over the weekend. If I hadn't recognised the symptoms so clearly.
I thought I would be writing this, once again, from my hospital bed, but not just yet. I shouldn't really be at work, but there's so much to do. Too much really to be writing live journal posts but what the hell. I'm so full of pills I wouldn't trust what I work did anyway.
The post I have wanted to make in the month gone by (but didn't get round to) was about how well I have found the NHS. I accept that I have been fortunate in this, but very rarely do the positive get voiced. Now though, I am in fear of invoking sod's law by doing so. A trip to hospital yesterday has furnished me with yet more pills and a couple of days before a return appointment to see if I need to go under the knife again. Sod's law would surely state that anything good I might have to say would come straight back at me and bite me on the arse. I shall therefore hold off until I know what's going to happen. I will remain here trying to do as useful stuff as I can today and hope that it will not be the total repeat I expected yesterday.
I should also mention that gargling TCP is rank.
