Oooo cover me in marmite and call me happy

When DH was 27 he was diagnosed with a particularly nasty degenerative arthritic condition (Ankylosing Spondilitis and Psoriatic Arthritis)

The bloke I knew virtually disappeared .. he had to, over the course of a few years, give up everything he loved doing .. cricket, football, any sport you can name he played .. rollerblading, dancing ... with it he gave up on friends .. because they were sort of associated with sports and the pub after (he is no longer allowed to drink because of medication)


this morning ... DH has gone off to an ART CLASS

he is trying to find a new interest

it has been 3.5 years since he's felt good enough to do something for himself .. and find an interest he can manage

and I just want to shout to the hilltops .. the partner I had 5 years ago might be finally coming back to me

.. this will make no sense to anyone else .. but it does to me and I wanted to post

Oh Twig that is fantastic! I'm getting quite tearful here and I don't even know him. Aw, that is so lovely. I hope he has the time of his life. You both soooooooo deserve it.

... and nice to have a bit of good news after recent shenanigans on here too ...

Arrrggghhh .. he just called .. he hadn't booked a place .. he turned up on spec .. he has to wait outside till 11am to see how many people turn up and whether there's space for him

.... oh gawd .. keep yer fingers crossed ... poo bums

emmaTooMuchGrub Sat 08-Jan-05 10:56:52

only 5 minutes though.....surely if the place was gonna be full all the pupils would be there by now.

Fingers tightly crossed anyway.

Twiglett Sat 08-Jan-05 10:59:40

oh I can tell its gonna be MY fault if he doesn't get in

never thought I'd be concerned about a blinkin' art class .. an art class FFS

emmaTooMuchGrub Sat 08-Jan-05 11:02:10

is he in?

11:02 by my watch?

Casmie Sat 08-Jan-05 11:04:51

Twiglett that sounds great - keeping fingers and toes crossed for you.

Twiglett Sat 08-Jan-05 11:06:26

I assume by the lack of any further communication he's in (I wouldn't guarantee it, knowing him) .. but I'll go back to anyway

Oh Twiglett how lovely. I'm so pleased for you, and for him. It must have been such misery. I do hope he gets in.
