Sometimes life doesn’t go to plan.

Hello it’s meeeee!

It has been a little while since this girl posted on here. I do not particularly want to go into the deets of my life… BUT I do want to acknowledge the fact that sometimes life just doesn’t go to plan no matter how hard you try.

So nearly a month ago I become a law graduate (I blooming got a 2.1, I’m so proud of little old me!) and I made the move to Bristol to be with my baby (that’s Will… not an actual baby FYI). However since I’ve moved to Bristol I have been in quite the sorry state so to speak. For those of you that have read my previous posts would already know that I’ve been having trouble with my left foot for over two months now and it was only a recent development that I can now walk around the shops without my trusty crutch (which has been with me absolutely EVERYWHERE).

I know I’ve not been my self because I have actively chosen to chuck myself in a wheelchair at any given opportunity because I simply just did not have it in me to walk… seemed a tad dramatic especially as I am used to ankle injuries and have managed amicably in the past. I suppose at some points I did second guess why I was feeling quite so ropy.

Anyhoo, my foot basically just turned ‘sassy’ over night and I was complaining to Will… oh my foot hurts, does it look swollen? I really can’t walk on this. It did all seem a tad odd especially as it was my left side (the side that is determined to be an absolute sass pot!)

Then probably around 2.5 weeks ago something else happened, something which was a little more scary. Something which made Will phone the doctor and basically dragged me kicking and screaming about all my ‘issues’. So that appointment was literally so surreal. The things she said to me, I don’t really think I was taking it all in. The result of that appointment amounted in a further referral to a certain kind of specialist and a quick turn around appointment for a procedure. It has been quite the action packed time! What with all these medical thingies.

I don’t want to go into details, but I’ve had to put ‘things’ on hold for now. I’ve had to admit that I just need a bit of time out from e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g

The whole sodding point of this post is that life isn’t exactly going to plan, its not quite panning out as I had envisaged BUT I have so much to be thankful and grateful for! I am so blooming blessed to be surrounded by the most fantastic cheerleaders imaginable (female and male may I add).

I didn’t plan to start our co-habiting life together quite like this?

But.

You know what? Life is what you make of it? What good is there staying in bed and just worrying yourself and wasting precious moments thinking about the what ifs? I’m not letting this small set back phase me because in the scheme of things I’m one lucky girl to have all that I have and to have such an amazing support network!

The moral of this post is that sometimes things don’t go to plan but it doesn’t mean it’s the end of absolutely everything, I try to think of it as a small diversion? I suppose I’ve got to add a good 45 mins onto my journey due to a certain road being closed (which admittedly is blooming annoying but it’s not the end of the world is it?)

So my life motto for life right now is this…
