Let's get the CF stuff out the way first! Good news is I haven't had a bleed for 2 weeks and 1 day. Woop!! I have, however, come to the conclusion that I hate using seretide. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to be more or less cough free, but when I need to cough I can't and I can't feel anything at all in my chest. As well as the lungs, I'm having trouble with it because of my mouth. My tongue and throat are completely coated and scratchy and behind both my top and bottom lips are all red and white and blotchy. My lips keep splitting and bleeding as a result too and it's making me most unhappy! I haven't taken it since Saturday and although I'm wheezy and tight (which ventolin helps with) I can actually feel where the crap is and get it out...and it's really rather rotten still. To top it all off my sinuses are killing me.

On to real life. My exam kids did really well! One girl (age 12) got 138 out of 150 (distinction) and that included full marks for 1 of her pieces and full marks for aural. Brilliant! The only boy (age 8) got 125 out of 150 (merit) and unfortunately could have got a distinction if he had passed his sight-reading, which he failed by 1 mark. Completely gutted and I know he was a little upset about that but overall very pleased with his grade. They were both sitting grade 1 and did really well. The other girl sat prep test and received a great report.

I'm trying to figure out my work life. I'm totally stuck on what to do, as the piano teaching hasn't taken off as well as I'd hoped on Arran and the people I have keep taking lots of holidays, so I'm skint! I really don't want to stop teaching but I need some financial security, especially after the 3 weeks off over Easter (not my choice, just that everyone else took holidays :/ ) and the resulting bank charges etc. I called a couple of places today for application packs so that I can at least sit down and think about what to do.

My cousin, David, who went missing in January has been found. Or at least they think he's been found. My family are currently waiting for DNA results on a body found near where David was last seen, and wearing the same clothes. It's been a really difficult time for everyone so hopefully this will give them answers and they can put him to rest. I can't imagine what they must be going through, and they have been fighting to find him all this time.

Not sure there's much else to say...I'm sure there is but I can't think.

Oh, turns out that gin is actually quite nice! Just a by-the-by haha

  1. Wow! Great exam results! I have a question for you, so I'll whack that in a fb message if that's ok?

    I'm so sorry about David. I hope it can help bring some closure and he can finally be laid to rest. Thinking of you all.
