I'm your fairy godmother

I can't believe a week has gone by since I last updated. I've had a busy few days and am beginning to feel the strain today!

On Thursday me and a friend went to see the film Mamma Mia. We have been saying about going to the cinema for ages but havent got round to it, I can no longer manage to navigate my local cinema so my lovely friend (L) drove us out to another one.

To cut a long story short, I was'nt feeling my best before we left the house and wasn't sure whether to go or not, then i had some problems with my oxygen so had to organise extras. When we arrived the car park was closed so L had to drop me outside and then drive off to find a space! It was all a bit of a nightmare made worse by the fact that I left my wheelchair at home thinking it wouldn't be far to walk.However,when we eventually got in to see the film it was totally worth it. As most of you know I love musicals and Mamma mia was brilliant, a real feel good movie. The cast were excellent especially Meryl Streep and I would throughly recommend it to everyone. I had to buy the soundtrack the next day, and I'm guessing my mum is sick of hearing ABBA by now!

Yesterday was my nephews christening. I was thrilled to have been asked to be his godmother. I did find it a hard day if I'm honest both physically and emotionally. I had to use my wheelchair and a ramp had to be put in to accommodate me, and as their were lots of people there (we weren't the only ones being christened) I felt very self concious. It was also hard to see everyone else able to help out etc while I was the one needing the help.

The service was lovely and my nephew looked very cute. It was the first time I had been to church in ages, I don't claim to be a religious person but I love the feeling of peace in church. The whole transplant situation has made me reassess a lot of things and as a result my faith has grown. I lit a couple of candles or friends who had lost the fight, to let them know i was till thinking of them.
Here are a couple of photos of the day. I had taken my oxygen off for a few minute because there were alot of candles about and i didn't fancy being blown up!

The events of the last few days caught me up and I had to leave the christening party early. I was pretty exhausted and over tired as I've had trouble sleeping lately. I was up again last night finding it hard to achieve restful sleep and when i did, woke up with a tickly throat. As a result, i think a day in bed resting is called for, so thats the plan for today. I hate it when my body feels so tired, and its even harder to handle when in my head i feel the same as everyone else but my body lets me down.

Anyway I will be a good girl and rest up so that i feel better and hopefully sleep will come easier tonight!
