I am so happy that it's now January and we are into another year, however, I can't believe how quickly last year went and how much has changed in my life - it's actually rather scary.
Honestly, December started terribly for me. I was in and out of the hospital due to appointments with so many different doctors and I felt like all I received every time was bad news, I had a couple of breakdowns where I cried which if you know me is something I hardly ever do when it comes to my health as I'm usually rather strong about it all and just get on with it.
The middle of December I was in and out of the hospital with appointments, it was annoying but it had to be done. At one appointment I was diagnosed with shingles. Singles! I was gutted. I was put on bed rest and other than going downstairs on Christmas Day for my lunch, I have spent so much time in bed but it has actually been so good for me. Of course, I have been healing my foot where the shingles is but it has meant that I became so creative with colouring and drawing again and even managed to read some new books on my new Amazon Fire which my husband got me as a Christmas present. I've had a really wonderful relaxing few weeks just catching up on life and having lots of self-care.
Once Christmas Day was been and gone, December was over with before I knew it. I was looking ahead and looking forward to starting a New Year with lots of plans and goals, the first and main one of them being to get rid of these damn bloody horrible shingles from my foot!
How was your December? Did you have a wonderfully festive Christmas time? Do you have any goals for January? Let me know by leaving me a comment below?
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
