So a few people have messaged on here asking whats going on with me?

I've actually been in and out of hospital again with a big operation, followed by getting rushed back in with complications and a chest infection that has left me really weak and taking a long time to recover.

I'm out of the hospital now (about a week now), and i'm slowly starting to eat again as the operation itself was a ghastric bypass. I still have a lot of trouble with what i can and cannot eat, so i get sick a lot or half the time i really havent just eaten at all which i guess doesnt help, but then this operation changes your body so much, everything else goes out the window too.

Currently i've lost 4 stone and although ive been told i look a lot better for it? I really do still feel like a (excuse the language!) bag of sh*t. I'm pretty much living on soup and liquids right now and just the very occasional cracker which i have to practically turn to much before i can swallow the damn thing.

Can you tell how frustrated i am yet? LOL.

I don't want to go on too much, but just wanted to let the few who asked know what was happening and those who sent get well messages, i want to say thankyou! Candy, your a total peach! love you, hun!

As for arts and icons, i still have the few i made before the hospital and hopefully i will get back into it when i can stand longer than 20 minutes on the computer at a time, as i use that time to quickly answer emails at the moment, before most of my little energy runs out.

Anyway, i'm about to hit the sack early as i will probably have to wait out the doctor at the hospital tomorrow, they rarely ever run on time at my hospital in Doncaster, so i will need all the sleep i can get. *sigh*

I will post omething within the next week or so. Promise.

Well. First off, i know i've said ill post things, but so much has happened that it just hasn't happened. Yet anyway.

The first promise was defunked after i got a nasty case of food poisoning. And i mean NASTY. I was sick for nearly a week, after i tried my ex's cooking. Now i know why he always ordered in or took us out for dinner.


Then the next was me having a nasty fall down a stone staircase. I was a walking bruise and literally couldn't do anything for 3 weeks while i healed.

Technically i am already disabled after my car accident years ago and damaging my back and knees (i got pinned under the dash), but this knocked me for a loop completely. I felt awful having to get my brother and dad to do everything for me.

The final excuse im giving (do they count as excuses if they actually happened?), is that i ended back up in hospital more than TWICE i might add, with flare ups for my gall stones, then i had a BAD case of pancreatitus.

It's just taken me till now to really get back on track in life, let alone with livejournal, you know?

I've started some new icons, but have some saved in a couple of folders that i have to check with previous posts, as i just can't remember if i've already posted them or not?

Hopefully i'll get something up soon, because even i'm starting to get pissed at myself.

Also, to mention christmas cards this year. I'll send one if you'd like one, so just leave me a PM with your details.

As for my usual sendees, nelliewu & dhfreak, yours already in the post my lovelies!

Someone PM'd me last night asking why she couldn't find an old icon post of mine, so I thought I'd make a post and let everyone know that I changed my user/journal name.

I used to go by Jo_Winchester, but I decided to change it to go with my personal twitter instead, WinchesterJo.

Last night they were still changing things over, but all my posts are now sorted, so nobody should have any trouble with finding what they want.

As for posting I have a small batch growing, so it shouldn't be long till I post them for you guys! FINALLY!

I'm sorry I've made you guys wait so long, but life's a bitch, ya know?

love y'all!

Ok, so last year hardly anyone posted me back about Christmas cards, which i admit was a little depressing, but this year i have one or two addresses and was wondering if anyone would like a pretty card for their mantle?

If you send me a PM with your addresses then i will gladly reply with mine and get a card sent out ASAP, as im trying to avoid the December post madness that tends to happen over here in the UK.

Either way, i want to say a Merry Christmas to everyone on LJ and all my other little online buddies who stalk my LJ. .*COUGH* Carrie-Ann *COUGH*

All cards have been posted! Hope you like em'!

Things havent been that amazing recently, hence me not doing the icon posts and arts that i promised before. So this is my first apology.

I'm sorry.

Secondly, i keep saying that i will make bits and pieces for everybody, and some i have half done, while the other are arranged and in folders to do. It's not that i just keep putting them off or anything, but that photoshop and me just aren't the best of friends at the moment? My drive to actually make things seems to desert me every time i open the damned program lately, which has really frustrated me.

So again, to those i promised arts for fics or anything else. .

I'm sorry.

Ive had the occasional message from some of you, but most of you have been really patient with me, as i have the crappiest health this last 2/3 years, especially with the accident before. You guys were amazing then and the support i has really kept me going, during all the psysio and the annoyingly upsetting visits with the therapist who was determined to ignore the fact i has an accident and wanted to rip me to pieces every visit. .Which im not going to go into right here.

:S Sorry.

Anyway. I'm just letting you all know that i am trying to get stuff done when i have the time and for the two of you who messaged and asked recently, my next operation after my ghall stones, will be one ive decided for myself and not just because of health reasons. Its called a ghastric sleeve.

So if i go quiet again in a few months time, it's probably because i'll be dealing with that, not because ive gone off radar again and had a fight with photoshop or anything. Sort of a pre-warning thing.

But, to other matters. Im trying to do more crossover arts again, and i do have a small pile of post-it's with all my own wants on it. But what about you guys?

Any crossover at all, ill give it a try for you! Just leave your suggestions in the comments below!

Ok, so I'm starting with an apology for when I promised an icon/arts post for the end of Feb/early march.

I do have a few icons made up to post, but not enough to warrant an actual post. .around 8?

I planned to finish them off and actually do some crossover manips as well, but never got round to doing more than one for an RP I've been running with a longtime friend, drumbitch and it was a crossover of TVD and a character of mine, Bella, played by Demi Lovato.

(if you guys wanna see my RP manips as well as the more regular ones, ill post them as well?)

Anyway, I don't want to waffle on about cr@p, but needless to say its all health related stuff that got in my way, and I'm only just coming out of my months long funk. Basically it was diabetes etc and having a majorly bad reaction to some medication I was given. It's been difficult, but I'm getting through and will hopefully be getting back on track soon and back on livejournal within a month or so.

I really have missed some major stuff, but from what I read so far, a certain peep got a Dalek tattoo with a cat, another is having Arrow withdrawal, as am I, and a 3rd was pissed that one our favourite Nintendo series, harvest moon, wasn't releasing the latest version in the UK yet.

WT$#*?! Right? (I have a bad addiction to harvest moon on my 3DS, just so you guys know WTH I'm complaining about now. Lol!)

So, if you guys wanna bitch at me, yell about lack of icons and art etc, I'm trying to get back on as much as possible now and catch up. I will answer your comments if you leave them! Don't worry!

Hugs & cookies!

Hey everybody! Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year!

I would say my own was so-so, but then i"d be telling some porkies. .Collapse )

I mostly needed to vent more, but i know i'm carrying on like woah. So shutting up and getting back to the main reason for my post.

I've started some icons and am aiming to post, HOPEFULLY by the middle of February or early March, unless the muse hits and i get inspired, maybe sooner.

I also want to redo all my links on my main journal page, but am having a hella hard time getting certain mini icons to link to Pinterest & 8Tracks. Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later and i'll get more regular with posts again, as i do miss being on here!

If you don't know anything about 8tracks, btw, it's a site for music mixes, like the old 8 track tapes. It really is a cool site and a lot of people are using it for their fan-mixes now. Including myself at some point, as i'm working on mixes constantly through my iPhone, just adding tracks willy-nilly to god knows how many mixes i've thought up.

I'm carrying on again. . .If you guys want to give me ideas for icons, banners or manips etc, i'd be more than grateful as i'm SO behind on the fandoms themselves.

Hey guys!

So I'm just making a post to ask you guys to PM me your addresses so I can get your Christmas cards sent out? I don't have ALL your addresses, as I lost my address book twice in the last 2 yrs, once when my bag was stolen and then when I lost the next one after a long train ride.

This year I have a full proof plan though! I'm going to keep 2 address books! One for my handbag and one at home in my desk! Idiot proof, hopefully. LOL!

If you aren't bothered about a card, I won't be offended, but I'd love to send out more than just family like I have been doing, you know?

You guys are my buds, and I'd like you to know it when you see my pretty card on your mantel this year,so please drop me a line and let me know your all doing ok, as well as an address to get one sent out.

Merry (in advance) Christmas, guys!

So if you get a phone call like this, i suggest you guys either give them the runaround (they totally deserve it) and hang upCollapse )

I know i promised an icon post (i'm working on it! promise!), but i just had to vent all of this SOMEWHERE.

So. . .Collapse )
