CT Scan Time
My 3 month check-up CT scan is due, joy. I know it’s needed, I know a CT is quicker than an MRI, still not fun though and there is just so much hanging around waiting for all the different elements. I work in the morning and then head over to Michelle's who...

Pinch, punch.
It’s very early, but somewhere in my head I remember it’s the first of June. That means I need to get   Amy! Me, competitive, never - Haha. I send her a very early pinch punch message with Recky 😝 Then I fall back into a drug induced deep sleep and wonder ...
