So much has happened since last time.
Twelfth Night at the Opera House was very good and Gareth really enjoyed it.
Jess passed her test with flying colours and is now awaiting her new posting. Again fingers crossed everyone (seems to work really well) that she gets the command she would like to be at.
Weight is going down slowly. I have lost 4.6kgs since I began this time. I might get back into my jeans yet.
I have had an endoscopy and found the cause of the pain. I have a healing medium size ulcer. Have to continue with medication and have another endoscopy next year to check how it goes.
My iPad has arrived and it is gorgeous. Just like a big iPhone but you cant make calls on it. I read the paper on it in the mornings. A few things I have to sort out but I will eventually.
Today is my last day at work until the end of January next year.
Tomorrow is Oprah day with Jess and on Wednesday I am off into hospital to have my lower back fused thanks to a very understandng neurosurgeon who wanted to operate on Tuesday and accomodated me on Wednesday instead. I will be in hospital for 10 days so will be out of contact for a while - at least until I can sit up and Mark brings me my iPad and iPhone. I wont be able to drive until early February and will have to wear a corset (hopefully looking really slim).
I will let you know about Oprah - I am looking forward to it but I hope it is not too hot.
Just in case I dont get back to you (hardly likely I know) have a wonderful Christmas and a hsppy new year.
