It's warm and humid again here. MS and I took SM out for a coffee/cake then changed her sheets (again!) when we took her back. We have put a waterproof mattress protector on and a 'puppy pad' beneath the bottom sheet - hoping that will stop the worst of stuff getting to the mattress!
So now I'm home playing on the comp with Sky alongside me on the bed
Yumms, I'm, glad you had a lovely birthday - even more glad that you finally have someone who wants to do nice things for you When are you going to bring her down to see us?
Podds, that journey must have been hellish for you! How are you feeling now?
Melds, it is possible to have absolutely normal peak flow and still be asthmatic - but it is unlikely if you were actually symptomatic when the PEFs were done. Gastric reflux can indeed cause very similar symptoms though, so it is certainly worth a try.
MC, glad you are feeling a bit better, please look after yourself.
Yes, it was my birthday on Friday. TM became FM and took me out for lunch, MS cooked dinner. SB came down for the day yesterday and we went out for cream tea, then popped in to see SM. The 3 of us enjoyed the last of the sunshine by sitting on the quay and sharing some chips. Took SB back to the station for the 7.30 train He has a lot of w*rk to do before Tuesday.
Glad that you survived the shoe shopping mc! It was bad enough with just one child - albeit one with unusually narrow feet for a boy.
Hope you enjoyed the balloon flight DL. We bought MIL one for her 70th birthday and she really enjoyed it. It's something I would have loved to do - despite my fear of anything approaching a 'height' - but wouldn't want to risk it now as a bumpy landing could cause problems.
Podds, I forgot to comment about the houndie boys yesterday They are seriously hansum boys and those rosettes are well deserved.
Bake Off starts today? Woohoo!
Took SM out as usual this morning but she was very distracted cos she couldn't find her bank card. We found it when we got back, it was in the pocket of the mac she wore on Friday. It confirms my feeling that she should keep her card when ours arrives so that she doesn't mither about it. It's a pity we didn't find the porridge and milk when we found the card - MS clearly remembers buying them on Friday but they are no-where to be found now!
It's another lovely day. Maybe a bit cooler than yesterday but temp still in mid 20s, which is enough for me
Glad that you eventually arrived in 1 piece Dragon. It was 28C here today, that's plenty hot enough for me! In fact, it was still 24C at 8pm.
DL, I'm worried about your ability to commit to anything - I think sofa September might be too much for you
Chuggy says that she is still in one piece but seems to be feeding the 5000 on a regular basis. I'm hoping she will be back with us when the summer is over but meanwhile she sends her love to everyone.
The assessors arrived at about the same time as me, the carer arrived just a little while afterwards. Mum had already had her breakfast - I had to chip the burnt porridge off the bowl! I have ordered a lockable 'cash box' from Amazon and will put her meds into it so that she can't help herself to them. I have also sorted out Mum's bank account so that we can have a card of our own to use. That means Mum's card will be de-activated, but she doesn't use it independently anyway.
This is the 2nd morning I have been up at 7am - a time of day that I don't see often since we both retired! I'm sure it must be against my yuman rites!
Hoping that everyone is enjoying a bit of sunshine without melting.
