Tests, tests and more tests
So thumbs up, my fallopian tubes are healthy! And I've had all my bloods done now except for checking my progesterone, which has to be done on or around day 21 of my cycle. I am a little confused as to how the process of finding a sperm donor happens here at CARE, as I have been told a couple of different things. I'm anxious to get started so I hope I can clear this up soon. I'm not sure if it's because CARE have recently taken over Nuffield Health at my clinic and they are still setting up the new system, or whether it's because of the pandemic.
I did have my mandatory implications counselling. Like the chat with my doctor, it was a difficult but good hour of frank and open discussion. With CARE, I will have three more counselling sessions per treatment cycle.
Anyway, I've been distracting myself with finally buying a bookcase for my bedroom and arranging for the dresser to be given to charity. I got the bookcase all set up and it's lovely to have all of my books out of their boxes and on the shelves after many, many years! You know how much I love my books.
Furlough ended and it was back to work on Saturday. I quickly got up to speed with the traffic light countries that are good to go and it was like I'd never been away. We've also got colleagues and clients coming back from long awaited holidays now, so it's good to hear their experiences of travelling at the moment and how the testing procedures worked out for them. I'm looking forward to my trip with Mum to Lisbon and Madeira in two months and really hoping we will be able to go. I've held back with booking day trips even though I booked the hotels and flights back in May. It's great that we've both been double jabbed, but at the moment that doesn't really give us any benefit when it comes to the testing. I'm hoping this will improve by the time we travel.

Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
