Have been off work sick yesterday and today. This is not good.

Saw the consultant yesterday; Gideon is a fibroid. He needs to be taken out, and I've been booked in for February (three months away FFS!), with the proviso that I can go in earlier if the surgeon gets a cancellation. My GP has given me some super extra strength painkillers to keep me going. I feel very down about the whole boiling.

Podcast is all recorded, but there have been some hiccups with the editing. I may put up a rough cut, just to get episode one out there.

Holly is having The Hobbit for her bedtime story and I got so into it that I was reading to her for three quarters of an hour tonight. She's loving it. She managed to wangle herself onto a school trip that we had no idea was happening today too, the little so and so...

Blogging mojo is all out of kilter.

All the above, though? None of that is why I am not going to help out in Old and Sad. If we lose the by election, the party will be wounded. The media will whap us with it. But if we win, with that candidate? I can only see damage resulting from that too. So I'm hiding under the duvet as far as Old and Sad is concerned. For more information, Andrew Hickey has written a post which is full of the conflict I feel.

*healing vibes*

You know, if you were to record yourself reading the Hobbit, I'd listen to it.

I'd listen to the Shipping Forecast if you read it. There's just something about your voice/accent I love.

Sorry to hear you've got such a long time to wait to get Gideon removed, that must be seriously tedious.

On the other hand, if only we could be certain of getting rid of the other Gideon by February...

Still, glad to hear it's not the c-word or suchlike.

Will await any podcastings with interest.

Here's hoping for a cancellation. :-(

Still, there are many worse things that it could have been, so yay that once it's gone, it's gone.

At least you know what Gideon is now, so that's something. Three months is a long wait though. I hope there's a cancellation. *hugs*

I have downloaded episode one and will listen to it on the way home this evening. Your dulcet tones will keep me company while I trudge around the volcano in the dark. :)

Sorry to hear that you will have to endure another few months of pain and discomfort.

Meh. Good wishes and strong thoughts.

Knowing is better than not knowing, and if there's anything practical we can do to help, there's an army at your call.

Ach, {{Jennie}} - hope you get a cancellation; having to live with Gideon (can't help picturing your fibroid in a stately home wearing a bow tie and spouting incomprehensible gibberish to camera) for another three months is just wrong.
