....We Get Out The Hospital

My son got out of the hospital on Monday afternoon, was home for long enough to have a nap (a total of 2½ hours) before his temperature spiked again up to 39C, so back we went to A&E.


They let him home yesterday after an overnight stay because the injections stimulating his bone marrow seemed to be working. But I had to take him back today for an antibiotic injection; and will have to do so tomorrow as well as on Friday. Hopefully after that he can take it orally.

Anyway, his chemo was postponed from last Thursday, to Monday, to this Thursday; to finally *fingers crossed* this Friday.

Btw, my bum still aches from all those hours spent sitting on a visitors' chair. A small price to pay in order to have him home.

I've just had an invitation from someone via FFN to join a website called Inkitt.

Apparently they want people to submit stories of 40,000 words or more
[You can see the details HERE]

What I want to know is:

  • has anyone else been invited to join this fandom contest?

  • is it worth taking it seriously?

Or am I just too cynical?

Oooh Errrr

Just a quick note whilst I bask in having Internet access for a brief spell. My phone has been utter rubbish, and I have been confined to messages via Facebook. Weird.

But I will be home in *checks my watch* approximately 16 hours, so I will be able to actually read posts, and then comment on them. *fingers crossed* Hopefully. So I'll see you then.

I saw these two separate posts today on tumblr doing comparisons of the Duplicate Doctor.
something that keeps bugging me big time )
bas_math_girl: Doctor Come With Me (DT sleeping)
We were woken by magpies at 5am this morning. 5am! The little sods.

Now singing I'm fine with. Birds can do that as much as they like. But these magpies were tap dancing on the windowsill, wearing what sounded like hobnail boots. Then to add insult to injury they started to bang on the glass (come to think of it, other types of banging might have been going on too. I'll have to ask David Attenborough if I ever get the chance).

Hubby leapt out of bed to rap on the window pane to get them to bugger off. Not exactly a great sight before your morning cornflakes for most, but fortunately I had my eyes shut in denial.

So all in all, I've had the grand total of five and a half hours of sleep; not all of it due to insomnia. Just leave me here while I try to catch up on life.... Zzzzzz

My husband has not only sat through a Nigel Slater cookery programme [I normally get some derogatory remark about him being gay before hubby switches over] he has just begged me to make some flapjacks tomorrow.

Is it wrong to like seeing a man beg?

Our internet connection disappeared for hours again today!

a personal update about yesterday )

That is all....

.... except to say sorry if I haven't commented/replied to anything of yours yet.

I did it!! I took part in the Race For Life and completed the 5km with the massive help of two of my lovely cousins. Let's just say that I could have easily given up after 1km, had to sit and watch the ducks for a couple of minutes after 2km, but managed to drag myself to the end. I even have a medal to prove it!

We were urged on all the way round by some lovely Americans from RAF Mildenhall, warmly greeted by Heart FM and local cadets with refreshments; and rained on by sudden short sharp bursts. All in all, it was a great day, but I am SO glad it's over.
BTW, should you still feel inclined to donate anything, please go HERE.

In other news, I saw this and thought it was very apt.

First of all, please accept my apologies for not answering posted comments yet - I'm still working myself up to doing so, and desperately need to nap again - but it's a top priority in my mind.
there follows a snippet of my angstiness; but the video IS worth watching )

We have the right, and the obligation, to tell old stories in our own ways, because they are our stories.

Neil Gaiman

Now I don't feel so guilty about ripping off the old stories I know. Thanks, Neil!!

Now that you’ve decided to be friends with me, there a few things you need to know about my behaviour in this matter and my mind-set.

It is important for you to know that in my job everybody gets a second, third, or whatever chance to redeem themselves as long as they can be seen to try. It is for this reason that I do not take the acting of de-friending lightly. Once I have chosen to friend you, I am committed to try and keep our relationship to the best of my abilities. I am human and will falter; but I promise I will try.

I have been near the epicentre of a few spats on here, and gained criticism for not taking sides. This was deliberate on my part. I will sympathise, empathise and offer you all the support I can but I will not blindly cut people off purely because you have had an argument with them. I keep contact in the hope of building bridges, not to diss you behind your back. If I have a problem I will tell you.

Which brings me neatly onto another point. In Real Life you can charge up to someone, bang on their door, and demand to know what the hell is going on! The situation can then be quickly resolved. Alas, you cannot do this on LJ. Instead, you face being blocked, filtered out, and anything else that anonymity provides you with.

The whole landscape of cyber friendship is puzzling when you first come onto LJ. Where are the codes of conduct, for instance? I mean, I know the general ethical standpoint (having had to deal with that in a computer course) but social psychology doesn’t provide bullet points for this. I have asked what you are supposed to do, or are allowed to do, once someone de-friends you. Nobody seems to know.

So, in light of that, I will tell you that I will do what I have normally done in my life:-
  if knowing me causes you any possible harm, I will retreat and leave you be. I won’t comment on your public posts and won’t contact you unless you give me permission to. If that is still not enough, please let me know and I will remove you from my friends list ASAP. No reason is necessary, and I won’t question you about it. This, after all, is your choice; and I will respect your wishes.
Not to say that I won’t hate to see you go, but people move on and tastes change. I accept and understand that.

So what do you get out of knowing me? Hmm. That’s difficult to say exactly.
·         Lots and lots of silly posts where I drone on about actors I love and things that amuse me.
·         Numerous pieces of fanfiction featuring the same beloved actors; and
·         The occasional video that I’ve found.
·         I also offer support whatever your idea may be. I have been described as being a ‘cheerleader’; not a term I’m comfortable with, to be honest [aren’t pretty, popular girls in films called ‘cheerleaders’? because that certainly isn’t me]
·         A listening ear, no matter what your problem is. And I never reveal your deepest darkest secrets to anyone, not even my husband [he is on a need-to-know basis with everything, in case you were wondering] although I tell him my secrets. The ONLY time I broke a secret was because I was certain the friend in question was about to commit suicide (this was back when I was a teenager) and I was terrified she would. As it turned out she didn’t, her mum was very grateful, but I sort of lost that friendship.
·         The chance to meet up when the planets line up when I can get to a set place if my head allows it.
·         I won’t ditch you just because someone else tells me to. In fact, being told to do so always makes me more determined to hold onto someone, I find. Unless it’s a marauding spouse, of course….
·         On the odd occasion I genuinely get angry with someone [it has been known to happen], and when it does, I go quiet. Just leave me be and I’ll come round again soon because I know it won’t last.
