On the road to recovery.

Another massive thank you for all the get well messages. I appreciate each and every one of them.
This week has been another struggle but you've made it a lot easier with your kind words :)

I'm going to continue with my feature of my week in instagrams, however I haven't got too many as I was in hospital for some of the week!



1) My friend Iain 'attempted' to build a pyramid out of cards whilst waiting for the hospital to ring me back, he got one layer from the top each time and gave up haha.

2) My attachment in hospital.

3) My very large pile of pain killers.

4) I had a moment of nostalgia of Russia, a very happy time.

5) The very horrible weather we experienced this week.

6) My parents were determined to make me eat, so bought me food and wouldn't leave until I ate it haha, it worked.

7) The guilty shopping trip my parents took me on.

8) Same as the meal, find any way to make me eat.

9) Our very lovely walk along the beach :)

As you know, I was in hospital- and that was horrible. But it was made better by my friends constant love around me. One thing I did miss though, was my parents.
Being so far away from home and them was really hard, and I know that they felt it too.
Everytime I was on the phone to my mum she's break down and even my dad was noticeably upset- something which never happens.
So they came to visit on Thursday, and one of the first things they said was 
"You don't hate us do you? Don't resent us? Will still talk to us?"
It really broke my heart thinking that they'd thought like that.
I know I say how lovely it is to see my family when I'm home, but it was so good to see them.

After we'd been out on Thursday, we went back to their Premier Inn and I was curled up on their bed before we went out to dinner and had both of their arms round me. 
For that moment I felt safer then words could say. 

Anyway, since coming out of hospital, I've been really weak and sick. The pain has gone but I can only eat when forced (which was my parents mission!) and either sleep 12/13 hours or none at all. So we couldn't go too far. On Thursday we industrial estate hopped, which is a lot more fun then it sounds. There are estates with massive shops on one main road which you can't get to unless you have a car, cue parents. So we visited all the home shops and picked out our favourites, and wandered around, it was really nice as it wasn't something I could do any other day, as we couldn't get to them, so it made it really special.

On Friday we went shopping for my nan's birthday present (and saw the xfactor auditions in Bangor highstreet!), to the pier and beach. It was lovely spending time with them again.

As my parents weren't around whilst I was in hospital, they were feeling mega guilty- so they took me shopping! What lovely parents they are :)
Unfortunately, it's now been a week since I've been able to eat properly, so I 've lost a lot of weight so I had a hard time finding clothes to fit!

But this is what my parents bought me :)



Shoes: Matalan - £10                                          Dress: Henry Holland in Debenhams - £20

I absolutely LOVE the dress. And as soon as I'm well again, I'll be wearing it on a night out!!! 

I was in dire need of some new shoes, I've thrown away 2 pairs in 2 weeks due to holes :(




Note my mum's very fashionable yellow coat haha.



Finally, welcome to all my new followers!! I promise I will get round to commenting back and checking out all your blogs, things are just taking a bit longer now!

How is everyone else? xxx

  1. Gah, just read this and your hospital post :( It sounds so awful. I can't imagine what the pain must be like, but I'm sorry you felt so isolated too. But yay for your parents taking you on a shopping trip. Eat! Or drink high calorie shakes so you can get into your clothes. Hope you are starting to feel better.

    Sending much love xx

  3. I'm glad you're feeling well enough to shop! I was in hospital with a mystery virus some time ago. I started crying on the phone to my boyfriend, he realised then that he wanted to be with me forever (bless him).Nothing like a bit of guilt to get something from your loved ones. Hehe.
