2 major things to talk about in this post.
We’ll start with the bad news so we can end in a positive way. I’m more than half deaf on one ear. Apparantly I had a cold that stuffed the connection between my throat and my ear which caused a pressure buildup in the inner ear, damaging the eardrum. First the doctor thought it was ruptured which luckily was denied later by a specialist at the hospital. It’s just damaged (not tight anymore). It might heal in time, it might not, in which case surgery will be required. I should know more in about a month. It’s really strange being half deaf at one side. My ear picks up things such as surrounding sound but not voices, making it really difficult to understand a conversation. Let’s hope that I have a bit of luck in the medical department this time and that it’ll heal out of itself …
As promised, let’s end with a positive note. I had my 30th birthday party ! I organized it together with Kristof. He wanted it to be a surprise party for Els. And surprised she was ! She wasn’t very happy though at the beginning, a bit shocked even. Thankfully she turned around as soon as people started to arrive It was a super party, had a great time. Oh yeah and one minor detail, you had to come dressed up themed about movies & tv series ! Everyone had a great outfit except Els her brother, his loss Here are the pictures, enjoy !
Wow a month has gone by already. Time sure flies
As I mentioned in my previous post, Kristof and I had to go over to the Ukraine for work. It was a nice trip and luckily not as cold as I feared. It was also extremely busy but we did manage to see some sights in the evening 2 in particular come to mind. The first being a pub where you are greeted by a guy carrying a Kalashnikov, then you have to say in Ukrainian “Long Live Ukraine”. If correct he opens a book case with a secret way into an underground pub, themed in resistance style, it’s quite ingenious. The second one was an SM themed pub (not an actual SM club for the record ) where they tie you up and give you some whip lashes all for a couple of good laughs. They do slash hard though, I could feel it in the shower the next morning. Maybe I shouldn’t have dared the waitress carrying the whip though. But it was all in good fun
Last weekend we had another game of Descent, we are almost at the next level in our campaign. Then the heroes can stop whining they don’t get any cool weapons Arwen overate himself though (so recent after his surgery) that he had to go to the hospital the next day for observation. In the end everything turned out fine, phew.
And then we come to the biggest thing that happened in the past month. I became 30 ! Yup, the big 3 – 0. Everyone claims I have to start acting responsible and grown up now, but I will remain to let my inner child roam free I’m having a party next week. It’s a movie/TV series oriented event so everyone has to dress up. Should be fun, got my costumes all prepped Even Katrien is dressing up, didn’t expect that, yay ! Pictures soon no doubt !
