Ok just a quick update before I go to bed ready for my second lining check at the hospital tomorrow morning.
I went out tonight to meet up with some girlfriends in the city centre as my husband is already in Scotland preparing for his sister’s wedding (I hope to join him tomorrow, see previous post).
I’m British and like most of my fellow countrymem I absolutely love drinking. Not in an alcoholic way (well ok maybe in a slightly borderline lush sort of way…my nickname for years was Patsy after all).
Since trying for a baby the alcohol has pretty much been reduced to zero (and especially now as I’m in my FET cycle).
Luckily I don’t find it too hard being out without booze in Italy as people here only have a couple of drinks and make them last all evening. This means that people don’t notice me cradling the same glass of red wine for hours at a time.
The downside of nights out in Italy is that everyone smokes. I was sat on a terrace this evening with 4 friends and every single one of them was smoking. It’s not that I mind if there’s a bit of wind…but at one point they were all lighting up at the same time and I was surrounded by clouds.
I hate being the boring one. Before this babyquest I used to smoke and drink and get up to all kinds of mischief. But instead tonight I did the sensible thing and ducked out early leaving a my lovely friends to their fun.
Instead I consoled myself with a cycle ride home through the city’s lovely cobbled streets (see photo below) in the warm late spring evening.
My life is a shadow of what it used to be. But I’m ok with that for a few week’s longer…but definitely not forever…
Happy nearly Friday everyone
