(((Podds))) sorry that you are still ailing - vomiting with sore ribs must have been little short of agonising!
(((Chuggy))) Glad that you have your orthotics in the right way round and that the neurologist has given you the 'all clear'. I think the only possible answer is that you have your legs on the wrong way round Congratulations on the 35 years together.
DL, it's great to hear that you do enjoy your job, it certainly helps youm get out of the door!
Yumms, well bimbled in the mud. I am so sorry that you won't be seeing too much of the bird
FarFar, that is one heck of a commute on top of a demanding job
Meldy, I'm glad you enjoyed your trot, I do think you were wise to ditch the race when you were entertaining Luigi. Glad that you also enjoyed your birthday - I think you will find that they come round much more quickly now!
I was lucky enough to be given tickets to go and see the St Petersburg Ballet production of Swan Lake locally last night. I had a lovely evening
Still nothing happening re the house move but am hoping that our vendors find something soon now that the market is picking up again after Christmas. Meanwhile, we are happy here so trying not to stress over it.
Happy Birthday Meldy - you are looking good for a 60 year old! Hope you enjoyed your din-dins.
Lovely to see you Mousicles!
Podds, it sounds as if you did yourself a real damage Rib injuries are particularly difficult because you cannot rest them properly other than by stopping breathing - but you did say you were not going to hold your breath! Thank you for your kind comment about SM and I. I am incredibly lucky that she is loving and grateful - unlike many persons with dementia!
Hope everyone is snug and warm, it sounds as if some of us are due for some wild weather!
Podds, that fall sounds nasty, I hope are completely better now. It's good to hear that Tom is coming on well, poor lad, it must be very confusing for him to suddenly find himself living inside!
FarFar, I'm very glad that things at work have calmed down somewhat, make sure you get that day off before everyone forgets you are owed one! Also glad that Ned is doing well and Mr FarFar is back at work.
Meldy, I think it is high time you stopped playing host to Luigi
Dragon, how low can people sink?! I do hope that the lovely Roxi didn't come to any harm being left in the cold
MC, it's so good to hear that your student is doing well
Chuggy, I had hoped that the new orthotics were helping with your pain I do hope you find something that helps soon.
SM seems to have slowed down somewhat recently. She is complaining of pain in her left hip and right knee, then there is the nasty bang on her left lower leg. Thankfully she seems to respond well to a couple of paracetamol. I kicked up rather a stink at Social Services and have managed to get her some extra time at Day Centre and another care visit during the day at weekends. I hope this will be enough to keep her comfortable and safe where she lives, it would break her heart to move.
1st choir of the year this evening, it was good to be back
(((Meldy))) sorry that you are still lurgified, I have heard that the current round of bugs have staying power. I wouldn't expect them to be a match for you though!
Yumms, hope you manage to find a few minutes to meditate each day, it should really help keep your head clear.
Jenni, such a shame that you are expected to work b/hols - you should get at least double time back!
DL, good for you for seeing the positive side of things. Very glad that you don't have the hassle of replacing all your cards.
I have braved Ikea just once but I expect I will visit again when we are in the new place (no progress at the moment, still waiting for our vendors to find somewhere to go). The nearest one is in Southampton so it's not the kind of place I can just pop into.
It is some years since I had a bath, we had ours removed and a walk-in shower fitted. The last time I had a bath it took me a very long time to get out - which was particularly galling as I was only able to stay in the bath for a short time anyway!
I certainly hope we see the lights on our cruise, but there are no guarantees. Yumms, I'm afraid I have never been to Newcastle.
When I got to Mum today she had a very sore leg - she has obviously hit it on something, it is very bruised, has some superficial scrapes and has deeper wounds in several areas. It is also leaking serous fluid by the pint! Have padded her up for now (the dressings I really wanted to use are Prescription Only Medicines) and made an appointment to see the Practice Nurse on Friday. The chances of Mum elevating the leg are about the same as a snowball's chance in hell
TM is away this week so I will have to amuse myself tomorrow afternoon!
