In a spin

Thankyou for all your best wishes on the blogiversary and the MIPP thing.

I am putting some plans in place to gain some experience in a different style of midwifery. I have some role models, some contacts. Approaches have been made.

I have been a bit flat out: with work, illness, resting (snort), planning and organising for a major event on November, overseeing my daughter in a work experience placement and the transport training for that. I've been reading a bit (Russell Brand - My booky-wook- fascinating 8/10, and the new Dan Brown ' The Lost Symbol' - formulaic 6/10). Trying to stay relaxed. Taking the tablets. Can I just say that labrynthitis sucks. Big time. I like having my head and my world steady. Without drugs. Its most weird. But at least I know that I don't have a brain tumour, or was not having a stroke at that time. Despite very raised blood pressure for a short time (its absolutely fine now). That's a good thing. Phew. Sigh. Did you notice some of the mutually exclusive things on the above list?

And don't talk to me about mobile phones that go all independent of thought. Mine keeps turning itself off. Just without warning. Its most inconvenient, when there is so much to do.

Its been a strange week.

Finally, Frogdancer and Victoria - there are presents on the way to you both by the end of the month. That's as good a deadline as I can deal with at the moment.

Right, work have called, they are short of an idiot / midwife, and my number came up. So much for extended days off.

See ya.

Oh Laura...isn't Labyrinthitis just hideous..?? I suffered with it for quite some time in my 20's so understand how ghastly you are feeling. It was the unpredictability and suddenness of it's arrival that really did me in, I could be driving down the freeway or just roll over in bed, there appeared to be no specific trigger.

I hope it passes for you quickly and never darkens your doorstep again.

Take good care.

Hope you are feeling better, the condition sounds horrid. And congratulations on being registered: a great achievement.

Frogdancer said...

Presents???!!! Woo Hoo!
Take your time... it's better when things arrive out of the blue. (giggles with anticipation)

I have no idea what labyrinthitis is. After your description I don't think I want to know.... Hope you feel better soon.

Well, yes, frankly Laura, They are repetitive in ALL THE RIGHT PLACES, and I do in fact have several favourite... or HOT (as you put it).. passages even though the whole thing is really quite chaste. Hang on, did I say Hot Passages?
Never mind.

And on a more related note, is that pesky phone a motorola? Mine used to do that and it drove me bonkers, I'll never bother with one of those again. Sent it off to get fixed but it continued to turn itself off until the day it finally died in a throwing-related incident.

Well a wonky brain sounds horrid but I'm glad you don't have a tumour! Also! Labrynthitis is the coolest disease name ever.
