81/100 Painful Treat

Day 81 and I had a painful but rewarding treat. I had the spider veins on the side of my nose zapped and yowzer did it hurt but instant result. They are gone. I have always been conscious of them but they have got worse over the years (daughter says no one can see them except me) and not sure if dog walking in all kinds of brutal Cornish weather or the free flow of red wine had the biggest impact but either way this was a big treat. Put it off for years due to cost, thinking it would be thousands but no £32 for 30 minutes and the majority have gone, one more session for about 3 tiny ones on my chin. I can see a massive difference even if no one else can. I am doing all of this for me alone so if I am happy that is mission accomplished.

1. No more veins, yay.
2. Mood, oh so much better-about 7/10
3. Chippy chips for dinner and no regrets
4. Have been making calls and organising future jobs on the house, getting quotes etc.
5. I didn't cry today. Today is the 22nd anniversary of when my dad died and it usually floors me but this year I remembered what a lovely man he was and how proud he always was of me. Sad but not devastated.

After yesterday's MEGA post today's is short and sweet.

    2. Ahh my good old dad, he was a gem and lost too soon. Thanks for the hug and back atcha.
      No it was a hair thin needle with an electric pulse through it, basically heat up and collapses the vein. It does feel like hot tiny needles stabbing you too ha ha but worth it.
      You should see the autocorrect I had on SoberMummy's blog the other day ha ha.

    1. Thank you Mark. My dad was the person who loved me the most out of anyone and I lost him too young in life when I was too stupid to realise how amazing he was.As an mom I mourn the relationship we could have had as adults.
      **GASP!**Chippy chips are far from fries. The are very fat fries but are soft not crispy at all but they have their own taste. I think only in Britain and Ireland can you truly experience what they are. I waitressed in Chicago and always was amused when people asked for really crispy fries, I used to think don't ever eat chips in England.
