It feels like forever since I done an outfit post! I definitely want to get back into the swing of things with them, I feel like this blog has been a little more lifestyle lately which makes a nice change but ultimately fashion posts are my favourite to do (even if I'm not very good at them and wear the same things all the time!) But I shall make it my aim, if I'm well enough, to do two a week.
Now these jeans are my favourite, they get a mixed reaction with people thinking they're either cool or that I look like an urchin. I like to think I'm kinda getting my Jane Birkin on (ha, I know I wish!) but I don't get to wear them a lot. As with a lot of H&M's denim I find they err on the small side so they're really only for skinnier days.
Such as now! I'm aiming to put on like 5kg at least in the long term but until then I have a few weeks to get myself over 50kg by my next appointment which is very doable I think (just give me ALL the cheese!) I had CF Clinic last Tuesday and it went quite well, I'd gained a tiny bit of weight and although my lung function was a bit poop at 35% before I was too ill to even do the test so the fact I did it is a sign I'm doing a bit better. I also had a little chat with my doctor about my feelings about not working right now, she actually thinks it's not a bad idea. She said I'm kind of balancing between getting very ill or getting a bit better, a little like being on the edge of a cliff. Obviously I want to get better so to be able to put my time into lots of treatment and medicine and getting enough rest when I'm unwell is good. When I left uni due to illness I had a few months to myself and my health improved so much (and then went downhill again when I threw myself into a full time retail job, so lesson learnt!) She said it's not to say I'll never be able to work again, I just need to get my health back to where it should be and then try a part time, less physical job if I feel able to. So I feel a lot better now about things and am going to ignore stupid statements from other people with CF about there being 'no excuses' (yes, there's actually been a lot of judgemental comments from people who should be more understanding than most but hey ho!) I think I'm going to trust the opinion of my doctor more than strangers over the internet! In the meantime I have Frojo Designs to concentrate on, my brother's business The Formal Shirt Company had it's first pop up store on Sunday and it went well which has really inspired me, so I'm aiming to start selling at craft and school fairs next year. And while it may not be a big job, at least I'm feeling confident enough to say I'm an Etsy seller when people ask what I do instead of feeling awkward and saying 'Nothing'. Basically what I'm saying is you will no longer have to read work related worries on here from me, I'm sure you'll be very relieved to not have to sit through those again haha!
