Had a lovely evening yesterday, a beautiful setting made even better by the evening sun. Went down to the quay today and managed to find a bit of shade in which to enjoy a snack lunch. It was very hot!
Morning all. I have to ‘endure’ another warm day, but not so horribly hot as it has been.
My Saturday morning coffee has been moved to afternoon, hence am still sitting here in nightclothes!
I managed to have a good day yesterday, when I went shopping early, then later filled car with petrol, got prescription at the third attempt ( car park full on first two attempts), went to bank ( very long wait) and got a picture framed as I waited. These things move mostly been waiting all week to be sorted, so rested on my laurels when I got home!
I’ve also sorted a way to feel slightly better in the mornings - take one strong painkiller instead of two not so strong ones. That gives me 10 mins to sort and tidy instead of 5! ( two strong ones put me to sleep!)
One good thing is that my blood pressure, normally high though I do take the tablets has dropped back to normal! Can it be weight loss? I’ve never noticed it before when I’ve had weight loss.
Hope those who have been ill are feeling better!
Plus hoping birthdays enjoyed and weather has been good for all you outdoorsy people!
Hi Spamar, I'm glad you had such a productive day yesterday. Yes, weight loss can lower blood pressure but it is often a combination of elements. Whatever the cause, I'm glad your B/P is now well controlled.
It has been warm here all week but temps in low 20s, which I find more tolerable. Went down to see some of the airshow yesterday evening, really enjoyed the helicopter that also gave a firework display (even better, there was no noise!).
No, Slugsta, I’m as well as I ever am these days. I was a bit cold the evening before as well. I don’t understand why, why is the reason I mentioned it. I wouldn’t like to tell you how many typos I made in three lines!
There’s been very heavy rain this morning, will have to dry the conservatory later. A bowl catching drips is not very elegant!
I had all my windows checked on Monday, so am waiting for the estimate. I’ve got one cracked window and one broken hinge, plus a couple of leaks and many windows I find hard to shut properly. I thought it was my carpel tunnel wrists, but apparently as I’m close to the sea, it’s the sea air. Told him I’d lived much closer to the sea than I am now with no problems!
HI slugsta, good to hear from you, I hope you have a good holiday.
I'm still here - fairly busy - first school uniform buying, now uni essentials buying (laptop, kitchen stuff, ensuite stuff, cleaning stuff, food). Also cyclocross season started on 1 sept which makes life madness. We seem to always be fitting too much in
Yesterday I did a day trip to Cardiff, nearly 8 hours of driving. Son was fencing, so straight into a sports hall for 5 hours. He won a medal so all worth it.
Have things to sort out re mum (and post on here) but that takes time I haven't had.
I think Ann is now on holiday, when she is back I will message her and say we are all thinking of her.
I’m also off for a few days tomorrow, Slugsta. Cousin visiting! However, the weather is looking good, so I live in hope! Might even get a paddle in the sea!
I’m being picked up at 06:50. Not early, I’m nearly always up by then, but not ready or dressed. So worried I won’t get up early enough. Think I’d better find out how the alarm on the clock works!
Had to go out this morning as I suddenly remembered, in the middle of the night, it was step daus 50th, plus her wedding anniversary, next week! Had to get out of bed to check. And of all the cards I’ve got, nothing suitable! Typical.
Oh well, the cold coffee was nice, the bacon sandwich even nicer.
The traffic! Loads of motorbikes (40?), couple of horses, quite a lot of bikes and more than expected cars. The fine weather is stirring everybody to get out!
Have a good break, Slugsta! Hoping the weather stays fine for you as well.
Congrats to son, JM, glad he’s doing well. How is daughter going to fit her cyclocross with uni? But hope she settles in OK. 2nd step granddau simply loved her first year, and her summer ( Bali building underwater reefs). Putting her subaqua training to good use!
My mum often has confabulations, including thinking she was in Hong Kong, no idea why. She was in hospital at the time and hasn't been eating much so I tried to get her to promise me she would have something to eat later to which she responded that she would try but that she didn't like Chinese food!
Mostly she is happily confused but on the weekend she had reverted back to thinking the nursing home were poisoning/torturing her and was very distressed, crying and begging us to take her home
