Vicky doesn't drink or go out to town, and with me not allowed to be out in crowded places or able to enjoy the tastiness of alcohol I came to the conclusion that a trip to the Zoo was called for. So me and Danny took her to Chester Zoo a few weeks ago and we had such a good time. Mostly laughing at Danny. He's never been to a zoo or anything like that so spent the day hyperactive, jumping from animal to animal. He loved the monkeys so in honour of his pure giddyness vicky got a monkey teddy and named it after him so we'd all remember the day. And I got a teddy penguin, I named her Zooey. We had so much fun.
I've just wrapped her prestents, and I've blown up some balloons, all I have to do now is wait to be able to run into her room, jump on her bed and sing "Hippo birdy" at the top of my lungs ~waits to pounce~.
So I've been trying to busy myself, which has been extra hard today. I'm trying to loose a bit of weight, my Dr told me last week that if I do get the go ahead for more surgery it might be better to loose a bit of weight. Which I've been wanting to do for a while now, not too much though. I'm a fan of the curvy look, I used to be skinny and I wasn't really comfortable with who I was. When I started to put the weight on, I felt better, but then I put a little too much on. Only problem is I can't diet. It's not a mind thing, it's been a week and I've stuck to it. Not one sweet, or cookies. Only good foods. The trouble is I can't eat many of the "good" foods. Due to my colostomy and ulcerative colitis a lot of food is off the menu. Eating most fruit and veg is no-no for me, I can't really eat wholegrain or anything with too much fibre in and nuts are what I like to call "suicide", they won't kill me but they hurt like a bitch. So, you see my problem. Plus exercising can't really happen either unless I want to land myself back in hospital. I got a meeting with a dietitian once my letter comes through, and hopefully they can help. That's when I get my letter in.
So I've been running on full distraction steam today. I read my tattoo mag, I read some blogs, read some tutorials and have started to make a bustle apron for myself. But now it's late and I don't feel much like doing anything except maybe watching a film. Shaun of the Dead methinks. Yay!
Hope you all have a fabulous night,
