So what have I been up too…

It’s been so long since I have written a proper blog post, I am sure you have been wondering what I have been up to.

Portugal April 2012

First off, we had a little holiday in Portugal (the sun was out most the time but obviously not on the day I took my photos).

Seville April 2012

Since where we were staying was so close to Seville. It is about a 2-hour drive. We decided to head over the border for some Tapas and to check out the Plaza de España. As the plaza is used as a film location for the Attack of the Clones.

Whilst, away it struck me that my life had become very static, with the pregnancies and my operation. I haven’t made any effort to improve my career or seek out job opportunities. So, after we returned, I signed up to return to school, I am planning on taking a few course over the next year to improve my Web Design skills and learn some new ones (HTML5).

When we returned home Jason’s eczema flared up pretty badly. And he began a cycle of antihistamine, lotions and anti-biotics. After a few weeks, when Jason’s eczema showed no signs of improving. In fact, it was getting worse. He ended up at A&E after he developing a fever. He was diagnosed with a Staph Infection and spend the next 24 hours in hospital having more antibiotics, this time administed via an IV line. This was only the third time in our five year marriage Jason and I have not slept in the same bed. One of the others being when I was in hospital last year. It seems to be under control now and we are just hoping it doesn’t get that sever again.

Sitting around the hospital for 24 hours and then the numerous follow up doctors and dermatologist appointment. Has meant I had a lot of time to knit. Firstly, on a Wingspan shawl and also on Ruth’s Mystery Sock KAL
