Back to Tower Hamlets

So after my big bout of travelling last year, I went back to my old job at UBS for three months, but I’d given up my flat to go travelling, so I had to move somewhere else, and since I’m now a contractor I can’t commit to living in a rented place for longer than 6 months.

So I moved south of the river, gasp!!!! To the borough of Southwark. People say there’s a big divide between North and South London and now I think I see what they mean.

But this month I moved back to the north side of the river, back into Tower Hamlets! And it feels like home again. I can walk to work again, which is great, and all the roads and pathways are familiar again. And people aren’t as loud north of the river. Everyone in South London is very loud.

No coeliac disease

Well, I hadn’t actually posted on here but it was talked about on my Mum’s blog that I had gone to St Thomas’ Hospital to check for Coeliac Disease, since my Mum was diagnosed with it last year and it is hereditary. I had my first blood test in December which was inconclusive so I went to the hospital for a gastroscopy in early February.

But lucky for me, yesterday I learned the news that although I do carry the genes for it, I’m not suffering from the disease and won’t suffer it in my lifetime. But because I’m a “carrier” my descendants may have it.

Still, that’s very good news for me. Sometimes I feel like I should have had it and my Mum should not, because she is the foodie in the family and I think it is much more of a big deal for her than it would have been for me. But, I guess you can only play the hand you’re given, as they say.
