The kidneys/gall-bladder/whatever: Still twinging. It stopped after the vocal cord operation, but that's because I was on codeine+paracetamol for two days. Talk to the GP tomorrow about the blood test, and in for an ultrasound on Wednesday.
The house: is still lovely, though matters medical have meant that I haven't really gotten very far with it over the last while. I am definitely still in the honeymoon phase - yesterday I realised that if I sit at the computer with bare feet on the wooden floors, I can tell when G gets out of bed and starts pootling around.
Also G: Is generally awesome, and is here a lot, and now it appears that without much fuss we're now (half the time) living together, and it's kind of great.
