Had any collections as a kid?

That was when I got my first giraffe - a wooden one, standing 8" tall ... now I have them from 1" to 40" tall, in most materials.

I did have quite a few dolls, more toy cars; but nothing specific that the family could keep buying for me.

I Am Still Alive!

Wow

How did I manage to dissappear for that long - so far behind?  I suppose it asn't helped that I have been working a couple of "normal" weeks, which is actually only 3 1/2 days, but I have been very tired the rest of the time.  I also ended up very sore after having Carpel Tunnel injection.  The GP just caught a nerve as he put the needle in, and although he moved it it was still really sore for a week.

Jiffy has been keeping OK, which is good.

I have booked my holiday.  I will be out of the country for almost all of July (and a couple of days of June).  This coming Thursday I shall be meeting up with a lady and her dog who may be Jiffy's carer for the holiday.

The decorating is finished for the present.  I am slowly trying to pack things away in their permenant home.  However I have decided to have a conservatory built!  So some things will have to move again after Easter.  I will post some pictures soon, I promise.

Still I am posting a couple of pictures here.  Last Wednesday I had an email to say that Mum & Dad's stones had been placed.  If you are on Facebook you will have seen the overall view, but here are some more.

RIP Mum & Dad )
debris4spike: (Queen)
50 - Someone who fascinates you and why?

No one in particular.  Although some of the great commanders of the centuries.  People like Nelson, Napolean, Sir Francis Drake, Winston Churchill, etc.  How did those men manage to gain the followings that they did ... and to be able to change and adapt as the conflicts progressed.

And all without Google!



51 - Who would you love to trade places with for a day and why?

The Queen's personal secretary/bodyguard.

To follow in Her Majesty's footsteps for a day.  To see her work, keep up to date, etc.

One thing that I have managed to do over the last couple of weeks is make 20 icons for the first round of [livejournal.com profile] monthlyinspo ... the theme is "Blazing Blue". There were no other prompts, which I tend to find slightly harder.

Anyway, here are the three teasers :-

A problem that you’ve had.

What a difficult question? I am mostly an optimist, so often find the positive, or the bizarre in anything that happens.

i suppose one problem I often have, is the same as most women in the Western World ... getting a bra to fit well!

365 Meme Day 44 - 46

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 12:48 pm
debris4spike: (James - actoring theories)
I told you I was all behind - so here is another catch-up

44 - How important do you think education is?

I have a degree as I trained to be an osteopath, my dad and one of my brothers did PhD's. However my mum left school early.

I do think a lot of people get a degree but then don't know what to do with it. So that seems a waste of 3-4 years to me.

I think education is something we can all do day by day as the years go along. However I do wish that people could be educated in manners from an early age!



45 - List five celebrities that you’re attracted to.

James
Cary Grant
Steve McQueen
Tom Hanks
... and James!



46 - What is your favorite movie? What is it about?

Actually I don't have a #1 favourite. It will change from day to day to day. Some of my super favourites are :-

The Sound of Music
Fiddler on the Roof
Operation Petticoat
White Christmas
You've Got Mail
Apollo 11

etc

I am sure you know all these films, so not worth explaining them.

I owe replies, I haven't caught up with my f-list .... I am just so, so bad!

But I am determined to start catching up, starting today.  In about 1/2 hours time Jiffy and I are heading out to pick up my friend Christine, have a walk and lunch at a doggy friendly place.  I am taking my camera but as the decorator is still in I can't get at my main computer so won't share today .... but will asap.

Anyway, what's up with me?  Not much!

I am having my kitchen painted at present, and yesterday the same painter finished painting my bedroom.  The carpet arrives next week.  So hopefully as the days and weeks now move on I shall be able to start packing things away in their permenant homes.  I have decided to have a sunlounge off my kitchen, so there is that to confirm and book ... and then the only thing I will eventually need is a new lounge carpet and the room painted.

No further on my holiday plans, as I am waiting for Annemarie to confirm the dates with her.  So annoying, as I dare-say flights, etc will be going up in price.   So am still at the vague point of Oregon - LA - San Fransisco - Visiting a friend in Missouri.  Will update, when I can.

Jiffy is doing well - slightly confused by stuff being moved around all the time, so it will be nice to get him settled again.

Having been a bit on-off with the gym, I have gone twice last week, already once this week, and booked for a class on Friday.

I have had a week or two of drifting, but I am determined to get myself back on track.  I will catch up with comments, re-post a gift I owe (!), and try to keep up to date with all your journals.  Bear with me - I will get there!

Well I had better get on and get Jiffy ready.

I know I have missed a few birthdays over this last week sorry - but on the day that would have been Mum's 89th birthday, I do hope you had a good day, and the year ahead is special.

Be back later *hugs*

Write a letter to someone who broke your heart.

Dear Jaykub,

I am so sorry that we had to part after such a short time together.  For me it was love at first sight, and I know in our time together you did look after me, and kept me safe.

You also taught me to know what it feels like to be loved.

Although you were only young when you left me, I do still think of you and the great times we had.  I wish we had been together longer, but those times were very special.  Thank you.

Love you Jaykub, miss you ...  Will see you in eternity.

Thank you.
Love Deborah xx

Write a letter to your reflection in the mirror.

Sorry I don't look at you very often, but never really think there is anything special to see.  Sorry.

There's no reason to look, is there.  Make-up is still not something I get used to, and as I love my hair short then it's no problems to style.

Maybe one day when I catch my reflexion, I will see what Mum & Dad saw, but until then I shall just potter along as I am.

Sorry

Write a letter to your parents.

Dear Mum & Dad,

Thank you for so much.

The support of my training, and accepting my change of job. The friendship, as well as all that you taught me.
The example, love & care was something that I appreciate more than anything.

Finally let me assure you that I love you both, and miss you both. I know that you are at peace, you are in Heaven, but I do wish I could give you another hug today.

I will see you one day, and thank you for the knowledge of eternity.

Love you both, miss you both
Deborah xxxx

Not For Me!!

Friday, February 10th, 2017 08:36 am
debris4spike: (Jiffy - sitting)
I have had to get up "early" today, despite not at work as the decorator arrives at 7.45am

So I have just had the TV on and saw a programme about an American couple making a "Tiny Home".  It was a lovely place, with room for 4 cats, as well.

However for me, it is ironical that they (and others) are making these petite places, whereas I am looking to get a conservatory built.  So I am up-sizing ... not down-sizing!

Daily Bible Reading

debris4spike: (Amen!)
Psalm 37:39-40 (The Message)

The spacious, free life is from God,
            it’s also protected and safe.
God-strengthened, we’re delivered from evil—
           when we run to him, he saves us.



Just a great thought for me to remember today.

40 - What were your highs and lows of the past year?

Obviously loosing Dad was the low point ... as was helping him to cope with loosing Mum and also his independence. Although I do have some good memories of some of those days.

So spending time with Dad was special ... as was my trip to London. I plan to go back to London in November again, and know I will see Dad again in Eternity.

I seem to have spent the last few weeks dipping in and out ... terrible.

I am totally in a muddle as I am having my bedroom furniture built, painted and the room decorated.  I decided while in a muddle I would get evn more muddled, knowing (?hoping) that as the days go along then my whole place will be more organised.  Please note I am not saying my life will be more organised, just the house!!

Anyway, what else?  Because I am having my bedroom done, and all my junk is in my spare room it means (Jiffy &) I are sleeping on the settee.  Needless to say, my old spinal injury has flared up for the first time in absolutely years.  So I make a good advert at the hospital ... work for the NHS and you have to stumble around dragging a leg!  I actually had to leave early on Monday, Tuesday is a half-day, but yesterday I was able to get most of the way through the day!  So, all in all I am getting better.  Today I don't have a clinic, so am not at work, although have to go in later.  I am sitting resting and doing this before trying to catch up with my Future-Learn course.

I went to Nick & Brenda's for lunch on Saturday.  And I must say Nick was more relaxed than I had seen him in literally years, and unlike when I was there at Christmas, he didn't disappear for a few hours.  So I am hoping that in writing his book he has been able to take another step on his way to that light at the end of his long tunnel.  I have read the book, and for me it was listening to Nick as I remember him in his twenties.  So although he can't process this, I do believe that he is managing to find a few of the positives that he talks about looking for.

So, sorry there is nothing much to talk about - and certainly no real reason for my "poor attendance".  I didn't even po in to do the 365 meme yesterday!

No news on the holiday.  I'm waiting for Annemarie to confirm those starting points.  So will catch you up to date when I know more.

Hope you are all enjoying February so far ... can't believe we are already more than a week in!  Will try and be a better girl!

Write about your first love.

Perry our blue roan Cocker Spaniel died in my arms a month before his 5th birthday. I vowed I would never speak to an animal again!

However as the icon shows, My Jaykub, was truly special. It was love at first sight, and I do know that he loved me, as he really took care of me. Sadly, my friend Toni had to phone me with the news that as a 10 year old he had to be put to sleep. I still miss my boy.

Humanly speaking - I'll have to fill this in at some future point, when I have a name to add!

What do you hope your future will be like?

I hope to have the time, health (and money) to be able to continue the part-time work, and to be able to travel and sight-see.



(I also hope to, in the near future, to catch up with all my comments.  I picked up a tummy bug that has come and gone ... so been really annoying!!)

35 - Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Drugs for a medicinal reason are great. However as most are addictive that can also bring problems. "Recreational use" often gets out of hand, addictive, or fatal.

Yes, I do drink, but one glass of wine occasionally is not a problem, either for me or others. I have worked on wards where cirrhosis is prevalent, and sometimes those patients started off as a once-in-a-while drinker that has slowly increased.

The trouble with both drugs and alcohol is that as the addiction increases so does the need for money as well as the erratic behaviour, and it is at this point many others are then affected ... family, friends and totally innocent strangers.




36 - What is your zodiac sign? Does it fit your personality?

I don't truly believe in the zodiac, however I am Cancer, the crab. Yes, I can snap, and do like retreating into my own (home) shell.
