*GASP* I know it is shocking really that it has taking me to 24 years old to realise that actually the world isn’t revolving around me. Is it because I am an only child? Who knows… I am just used to getting my own way most of the time. I am not the best at compromising and I can be ever so slightly selfish as it is usually my way or the highway but now, oh how the tables have turned for the next few months or so (then I can return to my normal needy self – sorry Russ)!
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (sorry, little plug there) you will know my more emotionally stronger other half found himself in an accident which was pretty serious. Ambulances, surgery, stitches etc…. Real life episode of Casualty.
This is when for the first time EVER my adulting (is that a word?) instincts kicked in and I wasn’t top of my list. Russell was… oh I am soppy.
Funnily enough, more than one person has questioned how I will cope… and so far so good, I think. What I lack in normal household jobs I make up for with hospital knowledge and teaching Russell the Spoonie way of life BUT I haven’t gave Russell food poisoning, the washing is still getting done and I am reading more than ever due to the Rugby matches that are taking over the telly – it is only fair as I usually subject Russell to hours of RuPaul when I’m not feeling too good.
Russell has been so brave, it puts me to shame. He has held himself together like an absolute trooper, both emotionally and physically. I have been crying tears for him, sparked by a lasagne not warming up fast enough. Drama queen eh!
Anyway, this is just a little post to get me back into the swing of things as I have been majorly neglecting my blogging life which I am starting to miss. I just am using my energy, or lack off, to keep Russell smiling – and luckily for him, it is birthday this week. Five Guys here we come (I know how to treat him ha!)
Russell, We will be high fiving before you know it. Love you lots x
