The big house move

Well in fact it still hasn't happened yet and it getting me down - just a little bit.

We want to live a bit closer to my family and friends as I hate bee so far away - I know 25 miles doesn't sound like much but when its a 50 mile round trip for a cup of tea , it makes a huge difference.
I've tried to make friends where we are now but its just not the same.

My family are great and try to get over when they can, but they are busy and have there own familys and my parents are old and don't like to drive on the motorway ( which you have to do to get hear )

Our house ha been on the market for 6 months and we have had loads of viewings but no sale as yet :( are we too hopeful is it too soon to give up or will we just have to bite the bullet and stay hear forever ??

I can only dream of a nice big house home in the suburbs with a nice big garden for G to play in. Our next home will hopefully be our happy ever after home and we will never have to move again.

oh I really wish we could sell our house but I will have to dream a little bit longer

Me and my left ankle

Ive had a weak left ankle since I was 15. I was jumping around on a trampoline on holiday and twisted my ankle, but it turned out to be more than a twist. After about 10 minuets I had a lump the size of  a large apple on the side of my ankle.

I was put in plaster cast for six weeks and told I had some ligament damage. Then I was given physiotherapy for a few weeks. I was still in pain but at that stage, but it was ok.

Then as the years have passed my left ankle has become the bane of my life - it gives way on me at such random times and it been driving me nuts.

As I've been using the pushchair for nearly 2 and half years I've become reliant on it for support and comfort, holing on for fear of going and if it does go on me its my stability and so now when I don't have the pushchair it will give way at any given time - even around the house on my wedding day.

Now that G is starting to walk by himself I'm getting worried - really worried as when it gives way I almost always fall over and having G's hand in mine I'm terrified of falling on him or pulling him to the ground with me.

I dread going out on my own ( with out pushchair or H to hold my hand ) the embarrassment is worse than the fall.  

So after many years of embarrassment I've finally sort some help from my GP who has referred me to an ankle specialist ( I never knew there were such people )

Who knows what the future holds for me and my left ankle - I'm a little bit scared but so long as it gets sorted ..........
