Day 247 of 365: Needlephobia
I survived my visit to Russell's Hall Hospital today for blood work. I'm not really sure why I get so bothered about needles because once it happened, I didn't feel it as much as I thought I would and by the time it was over, it wasn't that big of a deal in the first place. I'm just glad the lady was able to easily find a vein so I didn't have to be poked more than once.
This was to test my haemoglobin and check for any signs of anaemia. Hopefully all is well.
Matt bought me a chocolate bar and a large mocha from Costa Coffee as a treat for being a good sport about it all.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
