I have been very absent. I am sorry. I have done a lot of home based foraging and cooking and have lots of recipes to share with you. But I have been a bit overwhelmed with things domestic. And things related to my face. It has not been going too well and I am not exactly full of health and vitality.
I return on Tuesday to see my lovely Max Fax guy. We have decisions to make, he and I. The summer has established that I do not have sinusitis. This I knew. But the ENT bod still shoved a camera up my nose and thought I would enjoy watching the pictures on the telly. What is it with doctors and cameras? Can they not understand that if it is covered in skin, hidden behind tissue, cartillidge, muscle, fat or bone it is Not Meant To Be Seen? At least not by its owner. I had a similar experience once with my cervix. I mean, seriously?!
The summer has also established that while six weeks of antibiotics lulled my bugs to sleep, they woke fully refreshed and ready to par-tay once I completed the course. So I am back to feeling rubbish, hurting and not sleeping; with a red puffy face and slightly squiffy eye. I have morphed into a weepy moany pathetic drip who I do not recognise and do not much like.
This post is really just to say that I will be back. I have lovely recipes to share, and lovely foraging trips to talk of. But for now, I just need to try to get on top of all the things I can do on the off-chance that I have yet more surgery soon.
So, as a fellow metal friend once memorably said: I’ll be back!
