Yesterday I had another appointment with my specialist. I had hoped I would be told I would be going into surgery promptly. But, to be told I have to go back in two weeks to confirm then was not what I expected, nor what I had prepared myself for. I left feeling despondent and upset that my life was once again on hold for an indeterminate period of time. My normal way of dealing with things would be to go quiet, internalise and figure out how I am going to deal with things. But last night I had scheduled dinner with a good friend. I am glad I did.
It was great to spend time with someone who of course is concerned for you but actually wants to spend time in your company. There really is something to be said for friends who have shared the best and worst times of your life (and theirs with you). Everything resets – and I left dinner with a smile on my face. How fabulous.
On a lighter note, I have been whipping up wonderous treats on my new sewing machine. My latest productions have been new pj’s for me and skirts for my nieces. It occurred to me once they put on their skirts that we have become the Von Trapps from The Sound of Music and their matching outfits made from curtains. While we haven’t got matching outfits from curtains, we aren’t far off!! Oh well, there will be some interesting photos we will be able to laugh over for years to come.
