No mojo as yet …but I can sense its presence, so I know some helpful soul has kindly told it to go back home …which is a start.
I got my Pink Gun for Xmas… which I have to say, the filling of said item defeated me totally… and then took DD quite a while …during which time she punctuated the air with some interesting adjectives before handing it back … filled. Does anyone else have problems with this one?
Catch up time
The cats ...We had problems with Lucky who had to have a hysterectomy on the 23rd, due to a huge abscess (not a bill you need at Xmas) and then when she was checked again just before New Year, she had an infection due to the internal stitches which caused her system to react badly and she had to have another operation …they said the tissue was necrotic ….we hope everything is OK now ...she is due to see the vet on Thursday …she seems a lot perkier. .
The festive season was a relaxed quiet one with some wonderful meals cooked by Vicki. The only thing that put a damper on things for me was that little Ben is under the weather again …being sick a lot …not wanting to eat ….all stemming from the colds that are doing the rounds in the family, so they were not able to visit on the Tuesday as planned. It seems so long since I saw them all and could give them a cuddle.
New Year was also quiet but we let Robbie and Kristofer stay up as a treat …and we chinked glasses at midnight to bagpipes on the TV. They thought it was so much fun and kept asking ‘Is it time for bed?’ and then beamed when they were told it wasn’t. They were so good …they played with games and their presents …and nibbled bits …then …as soon as the New Year was seen in ... went to bed … and slept.
Lastly …an up date on my health …some of you already know most of this.
The loss of balance gradually disappeared ….as did the cold /flu that had plagued me for over a month, so by Christmas Day I felt pretty good…considering.
My heart reading on the ECG had anomalies and they have no idea what it is …but I am not to worry about it as it shows no signs of strokes etc. …they may send a copy of the reading to a consultant to see what he thinks !!!?!!!. I just have to wait and see.
I am however … DIABETIC. Apparently I have been …they think … for sometime.
I know it was naughty of me but as I found out only a few days before Xmas with the cupboards and freezer groaning with yummyness …I thought … for the sake of a few more days … I’d enjoy myself… Today is the start of me watching what I eat …I see the Diabetic Nurse on Friday and then have to start taking tablets.
The thing that gets me down is that I gave up smoking 4 years ago (after 46 years) and my only real vice left were cakes. Visits to Tea Shops and Cafes for cakes and coffee …bakeries….home baked goods …and the odd deluxe chocs gave me so much pleasure.
Now that I don’t smoke I only enjoy tea and coffee with something sweet …I really am not a savoury nibbles type of person. As I have a silent gallstone I have to watch cheese …which I LOVE … but although chocolate can bother me …cakes never did. ….has anyone any ideas? Oh yes …they say the tablets can make me feel unwell for about a couple of months …great start to the year… not.
Sorry this was a long one …well done if you got this far….
