Looby, I hope your gut pain is easing. Jo, I hope your AS is settling.

Thanks Ivy.
Next skin appt. is Nov 11th (or round about, cant quite remember) and he will be checking the ones on my neck to see if they need removing. I hope they dont anytime soon though, Im just getting over this one!
No muck up day yet as she is doing exams - Biology today and she is not a happy camper - even though she has studied to the max.
She had her Formal the day after my skin cancer op and I was too sick to watch her arrival at venue and I had the hideous Frankenstein scar so did some very ordinary photos with her before she left home.
She looked very glamorous and grown up and had a wonderful evening, so that was good. Only two more exams after this and then the dreaded waiting for results and applying for Uni - ugh, for her sake I hope she does well, I dont think I could take the disappointment on her behalf (I wont be disappointed but she will be).
Heres me waffling when all you asked was a simple question lol.

Waffling is good! I like the chatter :-).

Funny that they haven't done muck-up yet. Ours used to be done before exams. Will she be able to muck up afterwards, or does her school discourage it?

Lovely that she had a proper formal. What did she wear?

Is she wanting to do nursing next year?

She said no muck ups any more for her school, previous years got out of hand, probably a good thing really. She still wants to do nursing, but is worried she might not get enough marks from her exams, I think she will get in due to studying nursing for the last two years at school, but she is looking at the worst case scenario (she sounds like me lol).
She wore a beautiful knee length blue dress (she has red hair so is limited in the colours she can wear) which had a plunging neck line and back (not too revealing) with a sash around her waist (dont know if I have given the description of the dress very well) but it was quite elegant. She had here hair down with long, loose curls (her hair is waist length) and her make-up done professionally - looked like Lyndsay Lohan before she turned skanky lol.
Jo - waffling again

Oh, wow, Jo, that sounds beautiful. Thanks for sharing that with me.

My 4.30 pm update - I made it to afternoon tea! I feel quite proud of myself because it was a brave thing to do, considering how much I've been struggling with d this fortnight. I got through it with no problems *and* it was fun, so yay.

I have also cut my fingernails and toenails, changed the sheets and done some dishes, talked to a relative, returned the library books, and the house is tidier than it has been.

Sorry, short; I typed too much yesterday and my hands hurt.

I.
