Why, hello world…

I am so happy to be back in the land of the living I could jump up and down!

On second thoughts, given my newly reconstructed mammaries (that’s something I never thought I’d type) I’m pretty sure dancing around might hurt a bit, so I’ll refrain. I’ll just grin a little instead.

Before I share with you what I’ve got planned for this month, I want to give the biggest shout-out possible to the staff at Casey Hospital.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this stage of my medical adventure; the hospital was a fair stint from home, I’d never been there before and I was quite nervous about going under the knife again. Right from the outset, the staff at Casey were without exception wonderful, and put my mind at ease.

The nursing staff of Ward A took such amazing care, knew their job so well, and were more than happy to have a little chuckle with me to lighten the mood. No one likes to spend time laid up, but these guys make it more than bearable. So, thanks Casey peoples, you’re super.

And now I’m pleased to say that I’m home sweet home. Moving a little slower than usual, but very happy to have a clear head and a little bit of time to do some reading and writing.

Because I’m not quite up to form and wont be able to go out much for the next couple of weeks, I’ve decided to make this month BE MY GUEST AUGUST. I am so excited to be able to include some really interesting new voices on TBYL! I’ve asked a few friends and fellow bloggers to share their thoughts on something that they’re loving at the moment – and I think it should make for a really colourful and fun-filled month of reviews.

I’ll start off Be My Guest August tomorrow with a book review from the wonderful Fiona of My Mummy Daze fame. She’ll share her thoughts on some fun chick lit.

I hope you’ll join me in hearing from my new friends, I’m very excited.

Pst…a big announcement coming in a couple of days too. Stay tuned (wink, wink).
