Happy New Year

Hello Readers,

So here it is, 2016 and my first post of the year!

Firstly, what a year 2015 has been! Where have the days gone?! It’s been a good year, filled with lots of good memories, holidays, celebrations and birthdays! 2015 has been a good year for my music business, Treble Tess Music. It continues to grow, and I have met many wonderful students. It's also been the start of my final year of my MA degree in Music Therapy and I've also loved MD'ing and being involved in the shows with KYDS over the year! Most of all, spending it with Terry, and celebrating our Anniversary together! It’s been hard without my Dad, but I know he’s always with us and watching over us! My health has been pretty stable over the year, with a few episodes in A&E, which is to be expected, but Doctors have been happy with me at appointments and I’ve managed to get through the year with only one chest infection! Amazing! The PH conference was a big event in my life and one, which I learnt so much about this heart condition. Yes we’re incurable, but the hope and research is just mind-blowing!

Unfortunately, after a good year of health, now it isn’t at it’s best and over the last month, it hasn’t got better, especially with the busy schedule I’ve had. My breathlessness and leg pain have been hell!! As always, I cover it well with a smile and determination that I won’t let PH get the better of me. Thankfully I’ve got my Cardiology appointment coming up this month, so maybe they’ll be able to shed light on why I’m going through such a bad spell and hopefully I’ll be right as rain again, well for me anyway!! Anyway, I’ll keep positive and know things can only get better!

On a happier note, I had a great Christmas and was spoilt with 2 amazing meals, Christmas Day and Boxing Day! It was a very busy period, with family coming to ours on Christmas Day and then onto Terry’s Dad’s for Boxing Day. Their business, Wombat Fitness is going very well! I received some great presents and I’m looking forward to redeeming the Experience Days sometime in the Spring/Summer.

I then had a couple of days to rest and then it was New Year’s Eve! Terry and I travelled to stay with friends for a Southampton Uni reunion. It was great to catch up with everyone again and it was a rather awesome night!

One of my Christmas presents were tickets to see Disney on Ice at the O2! Wow, what a show! It was fantastic and I loved singing along to the Disney songs (much to Terry’s delight……. Haha!!) A truly super day and then onto a Friend’s leaving do, as he’s off to travel Asia for a few months! (*and breathe*) Now to get back to teaching and to get this Dissertation done to finish this Master’s Degree for May!!! 2016 I don't know what you've got in store, but I'm going to make it a rather good and a memorable one!!!

Thanks for reading and may you all have a Happy and Prosperous 2016!

  1. Tess so sorry to hear,things are not the best right now with your health. I hope that they get to the bottom of it and you get back on top. It's a bummer this illness isn't it. Now yes, you get on and do what you need to do, after all you have a career to think of. Your mom will be proud of you I know,and your,dad would have been so proud too. Hope you and your fiancΓ© have a great 2016. Carole xxxxxx
