Sunday Spotlight - 28th December 2014

In my life this week…


So unfortunately I’ve spent this Christmas dosed up on antibiotics. I’m now on my second course and I’m really crossing my fingers that they will make a difference this time. It’s definitely not how I planned spending my Christmas, but it’s no big surprise really, seeing as I have been very run down over the last few weeks. I saw my Urologist last week and he has now suggested that I start self-catheterising, so I will be meeting with the specialist nurse in the New Year to learn how to do that. I’m not particularly looking forward to it if I’m honest, but hopefully it will help in the long run.

This week, like many of you, we celebrated Christmas! On Christmas Eve I spent most of my afternoon down at my local Church dressed as an angel, for our annual Crib Services. Although I’ve struggled with getting to Church much this year, I knew I needed to be part of this because I feel like it’s not Christmas without going to these services. We then came home, had some soup, finished any last-minute wrapping and settled down in front of some Christmas Eve television. I was up pretty early on Christmas morning and we all gathered in my parents’ room to open our stocking presents. I was very spoilt with Santa and will be doing a post soon about the presents I received. After breakfast we headed off to Church, which was lovely, and then a few of us went for a Christmas tipple in the local pub. We had a fantastic lunch cooked by my Dad, and spent the afternoon opening presents, watching the Queen, eating turkey sandwiches and watching everything from Doctor Who to Downton Abbey. Overall, a really lovely couple of days.

Family time

One of my favourite things about Christmas is getting to spend more time with my family. Although we do spend some time together throughout the year, Christmas just seems to give us the opportunity to really get together properly and have fun. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day it was just my immediate family (minus my brother unfortunately, who works with the ambulance service) and it was so lovely to just be together. Then on Boxing Day we had the whole extended family round (minus my brother’s fiancĂ©) and had a great time chatting and eating and opening more presents. I tried to be in the moment more this year, so didn’t take as many photos as I sometimes do, but I might have some to share with you at a later date.
