Spring Forward, Fall Back

I am back!!!

First up, welcome to British Summer Time where the clock went forward by one hour yesterday. I left Edinburgh yesterday in sunshiny 17 degrees (63 degrees for you non-Europeans) and arrived home to rain and 11 degrees (48 degrees) and it has not stopped raining cats and dogs since then. Oh well, it is good for the garden though the flooded garage would probably disagree with me this morning.

Much fun and merriment was had by all this last week or so and I will update more on that later.

The most important thing is that I still do not have my period and it is well over 2 weeks since the last Provera pill. I am not sure if I have a cyst as I have been having sharp pains and cramps. My body seems to always look for the opportunities to fuck me up!!!!

I am having a much-needed week's holiday this week so I am in my jimjams, DVDs at the ready (In her Shoes and My House in Umbria), 2 episodes of Prison Break to catch up on, washing machine whirring and ready to just relax until Friday when we go off again to Loch Lomond. Bliss.

A big shout out to Millie as she has her FET in Cape Town today. Much love and luck to you, my friend.

Welcome home! A week with DVDs sounds pretty good.

I just watched "In Her Shoes" while recovering from my retrieval. Hope you like it! A week in jimjams sounds divine.

Welcome home! Your week holiday sounds fab to me. I love the book In Her Shoes and should get it soon after I get home. Have a lovely time.

Thanks so much for the big shout out. I heard you all the way down here. XXXXX

Your intro to Spring sounded promising. We got our intro by dealing with 2 feet of snow. The most we have had in years.

I need to get a life: I haven't seen ANY of those movies.

Strange, I watched those exact two movies last week--preferred Umbria--something so much more real about Maggie Smith's pain.

Best of everything...

I'm glad you had a good time. I'm sorry your body isn't cooperating, though. I hope it gets itself in gear pronto.

How funny that you are watching "In her shoes". We used to drive the author to soccer practice when she and my sister were on the same travel team.

Welcome home! Watching movies sounds perfect for the weather you are having. Need to add Umbria to my movie list.

How frustrating about your period. Is this messing with your donor, too? Does your body have no sense of decency? well, I guess we actually covered that one earlier.

Hope you're able to get started soon.

I'm sorry Auntie Flo didn't come back to the countryside with you, she's such an old hag - curse her. But glad you had such a nice holiday! All those Spring showers, I'm sure you'll have great flowers and possibly other blooming things real soon.

Love relaxing at home with videos.

Sorry to hear about your period - what will it mean for your cycle?
