At long last I get time to sit and type.

Last week I ended up with another week off work with a virus. It started as sinusitis that was quite mild, but went onto my chest again! So this week it's been busy to be back at work, catching up.

Well my conservatory is up (vinyl to come next week) ... so now I shall spend this weekend trying to get my house looking like a home again. Once that's done I shall take some photos so you can see what has been happening.

This afternoon Misty and I went for a walk around the city ... and payed for my holiday, so now it's all ready to go.

As I said it's Maundy Thursday, and as you can see here, The Queen has been handing out the Maundy money. Here are a couple of photos to show how well the Royal Couple are looking.

Well that's me up to date again. Hope you are all well

52 - What is your most treasured item?
53 - Your biggest insecurity.
54 - Something that you want to do before you die.
55 - What is something that makes your heart break?
56 - Something that you’re extremely afraid of.
57 - What food are you craving right now?
58 - What was the last dream you remember about?
59 - A habit you wish you didn’t have.
60 - Describe the room you’re in right now.
61 - A dead person you’d like to talk to and why?
62 - Go look in the mirror. What’s the first thing you notice?
63 - What song makes you dance?
64 - Name a cartoon you loved as a kid.
65 - Your ultimate feast?

And here are the answers )

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 )

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*

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!

What mood were you in today?

Pretty good.

  • I heard back from Annemarie, and it looks as if plans can be made for my USA trip.

  • I went to the gym, and although wasn't there long had a good time.

  • Jiffy had a good walk this morning ... this week has been tough as two vet visits (he likes them, but sad they had to happen).. An ear infection, then a cut paw. But today he was doing well
