We are still alive! Just not felt like writing to the blog of late. Tired (mentally), fed up, and nothing to give. Have been up north at mother in laws house since last Friday so had lots of down time which has most likely done me some good. I don't feel I have much to update on a gain as life is so samey really. I remember last time I updated on a weekend full of gardening. The week following that Mon 15th-Fri 19th saw nothing out of the new ordinary of school runs, nap, housework, repeat. I don't really have many photos to share of that week. I seem to have got out of the habit of taking piccies of my day of late. Just don't seem to be remembering to do so! I have had sinus issues again the past few months so I have had to take about every nose spray going. Finally conceeded that I need to talk to the Drs which I did. I got a weeks worth of Doxycycline antibiotics which worked fab. Cleared it right up. 2 days after they stopped I was stuffed right up again. Suffered for a few week before conceeding I had to talk to them again. I had a f2f appointment which was a 2 in 1. Sophie needed to go for a cough she has had for ages. Nooo not the corona! It started after a cold beginning of December and never went. We had her seen by a nurse who said that she was clear of infection and it might last a few weeks. It stayed and tbh sounded more allergy-ey to me. So tried her on Piriton per GP advice but it didn't go so I tried her on a nose spray (used to be ok for age 6+ but they have now changed it to adults only?!) Any way this worked a treat! So I know it's that. however GP still wants to investigate her for Asthma as it runs down my side of the family. So we are now using a peak flow metre, spacer and Ventolin for a few weeks. For me he said to try Avamys. A nose spray I have never heard of before. This is in case the Nasonex I usually use has become resistant and no longer works for me. Not too convinced as I've been on it since 2007. Surely that would have happened by now?! I don't mind trying for a bit though. But do want to go back to Nasonex if I can as I was put on this by my ENT on discharge after surgery for polyps. It is to prevent them from returning so is quite important! So far so good and it does seem to be making a difference I think. I'm not too convinced my GP knows much as he isn't that great though so I might email my surgeons secretary to see what he would like me on long term here onwards! I have restarted my sinus rinse again. The sachets are sooo expensive so I tried to make my own. But seems I got all the things mixed up though in quantity as it hurt like mad LOL. I could try another recipe but can't be arsed with the faffing so back to the neilmed expensive ones it is! Right time for a few random pictures that I have.
One school morning saw Jessica refusing to get up. She didn't want to go but did technically get out of bed but relocated herself to her wardrobe floor ... as you do!
