One of those days....

Jun 25, 2012 - Comments: 0

You know those days where it starts off with so much promise and ends with you wanting to cry your eyes out or really lay into a punching bag for no apparent reason??

Mine's kinda been like that.....
Firstly, the good GP believes my chest infection is clearing up very nicely, and is confident next week I'll be cleared for my LR surgery. YAY!!! Huge boost to my confidence, as it's taken a few...
