As 2011 comes to an end, I am looking forward to 2012.
I haven’t had the best of years in terms of health, four cancer scares for me and one cancer scare for Russ, it is certainly a year I would want to forget if it wasn’t for my fiancé and my little girl being part of it. Having them two in my life means I can deal with anything, hopefully!
Looking back, I feel very lucky that all my health issues have been sorted and turned out to be nothing sinister. The test was the tumour in my parotid gland, that was a little bit scary as that was something that was physically there and did not get instantly sorted by having scans done. But I survived and luckily it was benign. Just need the feeling to come back in my face and ear, a common issue when you have this kind of operation and then I will just have the scar as a reminder, that doesn’t bother me much!
I am very lucky to have my little girl and fiancé in my life. I don’t know what I would do without them. My fiancé is a fantastic Dad and a fantastic fiancé. I love him very much. My little girl is amazing, she is such a loving little girl that is growing up way too quickly. She will be two on the 5th February…now that is scary!
I don’t want a lot out of the next year…well actually yes I do. I would love another baby, a finished house – but I do not want to pressurise Russell to get the house done, he works hard enough as it is and to be honest I have got used to living in a construction site. Upstairs is getting there. So maybe I should rephrase that, I would love the living room sorted but the most of all I just want my family to be healthy and happy. They mean the world to me.
So that’s my Goodbye to 2011 post. It has been challenging but it certainly could of been worse.
For anyone reading this post, I would like to wish you a very happy and healthy 2012 xxx
