After the operation...

....which was horrible, a bit of me looks like this. And no. I'm not showing you my face or you mightn't sleep tonight. I bought this sweatshirt to cheer me up and avoid those awkward what-on-earth-has-happened-to-you-and-is-it-okay-to-ask moments. It works quite well, and cheers me up. A bit.

One day, I'll look human again, but at the moment I look like some leftover Halloween decoration. Self-pitying? Me? Too right  I am. But I'm sorry not to have visited other blogs this week. I'll be back soon.

  1. Glad to see you out the other side and still with your sense of humour in tact. It can only get better.

  2. That sweatshirt seems like a clever idea. Sometimes one really hates those "are you okay" questions, doesn't one? even when they can be supposed to be an expression of genuine concern, it can be really tiresome to have to come up with good answers! (please feel free not to reply to this comment...)

  4. Poor you! Like Monica, I think the sweatshirt is a good idea. It can certainly be useful to make the situation less awkward - for others as much as for yourself.

    1. Thanks, Rosemary, I subsequently contracted an infection in the wound, and the pain was something else. But I seem to be on the mend now.
