So, you know a while back I told you I went deaf in one ear? (Here's a reminder) Well, it turns out, it's permanent!!! Soooo annoying. Last night I had an MRI to make sure there was nothing sinister causing it, which thankfully was clear. The unfortunate news is that the partial deafness is here to stay. Pardon?? Yes hilarious jokes like those never wear thin. Yesterday I ventured out to do some Christmas shopping, for those things I can't get online...and a woman rammed her pram into me. I must have looked at her incredulously because she told me she had said "excuse me" three times and I hadn't heard. Hmmm...see normally I would say she was a rude cow who squeezed on through whispering "excuse me" as an afterthought. But now? Well, I've lost all right to win arguments based on what I heard. Disaster. Some pics from the past week..
