There’s a hashtag I love on Instagram: #littlestoriesofmylife. I’ve taken to using it most days, as a way to share the moments I want to remember, usually the best moments of my day – big or small.
Today was a long, long day, but it was a good, good day. I had my third tuning appointment for my cochlear implant, and then the third rehab appointment which is mostly Speech and Language at the moment. It was the first time we did a hearing test with my cochlear implant (which has been activated for 3 weeks now), and I was completely surprised. Contrary to how up and down last week was, I am actually hearing so much already. There’s a long way to go with rehab, which is just getting my brain to remember and/or recognise all the sounds, and there is still likely to be a lot of work on speech comprehension, but it’s really promising at this stage.
This may be a short post but I wanted to share some little stories from today, and perhaps begin another regular post on here.
Moments to remember from today: a sister coffee date with Lizzie, a little adventure in St Pancras Station, *that* purple car that seems to live outside St Pancras, getting excited at spotting some beautiful Christmas lights (which I texted to my Christmas-magic-maker-extraordinaire friend the moment I saw them), and walking through mountains of leaves, loving the feel of them crunching beneath my feet and smiling at the sound they made. All documented below:
If you want to find me on Instagram, I have two accounts – and you’re more than welcome to follow along. One is predominantly for Sarah Emma Photography, and the other is my personal account (lots of pictures of cups of tea and all the little things that make me happy).
Do you use Instagram? What are your favourite hashtags?
Happy Tuesday! (Even though I’m across the pond in London, I’m nervously following the USA Presidential elections tonight…thinking of you all across the waters.)
I’ve actually yet to post all of the pictures on Instagram yet, so you lucky ones are getting a sneak preview here!
