Hi, long time, no see! Before I get into the goodies, I have some life updates first.
So far, still no news on when my gastroscopy will be. I had another blood test and this time, it came up deficient in iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. I'm on tablet supplements for the iron and D, while B12 is being taken care of by injection every six weeks. Because that hadn't shown up previously, I asked if having a heavier period could contribute to it.
The other day, I had an ultrasound of my uterus, ovaries and kidneys to see if I may be menhorragic or if there are other present problems in my inner lady parts. Hope not.
Tash and I aren't friends anymore. I was meant to help her out over the last couple of weeks with minding Bryce in case she went into labour (as she was due on the 11th) but with my health, I am not exactly in any condition to run after a playful 2-year-old (if anything, I'd be in bed more of the time, not someone who can look after a toddler), and I don't know the first thing about minding kids! I would've been bothering her with phonecalls non-stop when she was meant to be resting after giving birth. So, because I let her down in such a big way, our friendship has been terminated. I'm going to miss spending time with Bryce, and I am sad I didn't get to meet Baylee. But...other than that, I don't feel too sad about losing Tash as a friend right now. It might hit me later, maybe not. I don't know. How did I find out about our friendship being over? She unfriended me on Facebook. Maybe that's why I don't feel as bad about it.
Not long until I am 30. I was going to go on a holiday, but well...that will have to wait until I am well again. Oh well, when I am, I'll be ready for a big trip to Queensland or something. Might even be able to catch Gee and Leila since they're currently occupied with other events (Leila being with family that lives in another part of Australia, Gee working on a huge art project). Not going to have a party, doubt I'll be able to go out for dinner either. So, I'll just be at home doing what I did last year; nostalgia marathon!
Been rewatching Danger Mouse. I can't get over how hilarious it is! Both versions, really. I did watch the original as a kid, but the dialogue flew right over my head so it was a bit dull to me back then. Now, I get all of the gags so I can enjoy it more. I'm going to see about getting the 30th anniversary boxset for my birthday, if not Christmas.
Okay, now that all of that is out of the way, time for the goodies! I'm like a month or so late with this, but here goes!
First up, we have the wife of Huckleberry Hound, a cute little plush of Desert Flower. She was featured in 'The Good, the Bad and Huckleberry Hound'. She's made of fleece, and is so soft and cuddly, it was hard to put her down. She measures at about 3". She's currently cuddled up with her husband. The artist was vulpes_canis.
Here we have Choo-Choo from the series 'Top Cat'. He too is made from fleece. He's larger than Desert Flower, standing at 8". His face is flat, but it adds to the uniqueness of this one. He's not going to be my only Choo-Choo either, I am having more commissioned for variety. He was made by an artist on Tumblr called teensiest.
I have two of these notebooks, they're from the Pokemon Sepia Graffiti range. The illustration on the inside is the same as featured on the back cover.
The Pokemon Time collection did a special Eeveelutions set, focusing only on Eevee and all of its evolved forms (Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon). I got mascot plush of Vaporeon and Sylveon, two of my fave Eeveelus (the third being Glaceon). They're official, not bootleg. They're made of a minky fabric, so they are very soft to the touch. Still thinking of nicknames for these two ladies.
Uta no Prince-sama
These were get well soon and cheer-up gifts from shiroi_ume. The screen cleaner, cracker charm and badge all feature Shinomiya Natsuki, my fave character (aside from Sho and Haruka). The figure is Piyo-chan, one of the mascots of the series (along with the music note Onpu-kun). Piyo-chan is also one of Natsuki's fave characters in-series, so it's suitable there's something of her to join all of these Nacchan goodies.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: Equestria Girls
These figures of Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy came from a Kinder Surprise collection (it also had their pony forms, but I focused on the human forms). They have pony ears and brushable tails (the stand doubles as a comb), though Twilight, Dash and Fluttershy are all missing their wings to be completely ponied-up (Pony Up is the term used when they become anthro pony girls).
Hahh, there we go. Goodies post done! Heh, it might be a little while before my next one. Hmm...might actually make my next one on my birthday so I can show off pressies too. I'll keep you informed of my health updates when something new comes up. I'm getting my results on Monday, so wish me luck that all is good at least in my uterus, ovaries and kidneys. Last thing I want is another concern to come up when the first issue (a year of nausea, 10 months of pains) still has to be dealt with.
Anyway, included in that goodies post may be another Choo-Choo, a tiny custom plush of Tracey (yep, finally having him made...he'll be about the same height as Desert Flower), maybe something of Danger Mouse?
Okay, see you all later!
