Just a quickie. A lot has happened since my last update, so I will try and summarize it here. I still don’t have access to the internet (I am at someone’s house doing this!), so regular updates won’t start until at LEAST next week.
1. I gave up my job
Whilst I was off sick, I re-evaluated my life and decided that I wanted to give up my job. There were other work-related issues that swayed my decision aswell. I won’t go into it here, but once I had made the decision, I felt so relieved I could tell straight away that it was the right decision. I gave my 4 weeks notice and left in early September.
2. I have moved to Slough.
(hence no internet!). WE moved in on 5th September and a lot of stuff is still not unpacked yet. Internet access should be installed next week. It has taken forever due to awful customer service and just bad bad management at Virgin Media. So we have decided to go to BT instead. I am starting to find my way around the area but I’m still quite a long way off being a ‘local’!
3. I have been on holiday to Greece!
Yes, we went to Lesvos for 2 weeks and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Apart from being bitten alive by mosquitos and the fact that everyone seemed to smoke in your face, it was a great holiday. Reading books on the beach, swimming and snorkelling in the sea, eating out every day, siestas. Brilliant! We went on holiday only a few days after moving house.
4. I am still poorly.
I am much better than I was, but I am still coughing and still have bad asthma. I have been referred to see a consultant at the hospital (I have an appointment for the first week in November) so I hope I’ll be able to get it sorted out. I can’t laugh without coughing my guts up. I can’t bend down or do any strenuous exercise without coughing. So it’s a pain in the butt! It has been 3 and a half months now. SURELY it shouldn’t last this long??
So that, in a nutshell, is my update! I’m hoping to get back on here more regularly once I have internet at home. I’m still unemployed so I should have plenty of time!
