 I have just been told by my good friend that although I export my LJ posts to DW, they are not showing up on the reading page.

So for LJ friends who no longer check in there, sorry - I haven't ignored you, but DW doesn't show the posts where it should ... so if you want to catch up read my journal.

Just A Few Points

  • GGgrrrr - haven't been posting regularily!

  • GGGGgggrrrrrrrr - haven't replied to your comments.

  • Jiffy is still scratching, but not as bad as he was, so the vet has suggested increasing his baths, and I am being more pro-active at finding different walks to go on.

  • Went to Salisbury & Stonehenge on Wednesday (photos to come)

  • Work comes & goes ... well, the patients do.  Everyone moans about the lack of money spent on the NHS, however whatever really annoys me is that so many people just don't turn up for their appointments.  That causes more expense.

  • And, as a final point - I have booked a weeks trip in June in Italy ... Rome, Florence, etc


And, finally Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] kudagirl ... miss you

Staying At LJ

 Although I have this account, I will only post over at LJ.

However I will try to pop in here as regularly as I can to keep up to date with those friends who have come over here.

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*

Day 21 → your favourite websites this year

Well, it still is LJ! Even if I have been a bit MIA this year, I still love it, and miss it when I can't get too involved.

My other website I like is Instagram, although I tend to use a different one called 6tag. But I do like sharing a few photos ... but also looking at other photos, especially ones about travel, or giraffes .... or Westies and other dogs.

The other sites are MSN & BBC news, Wikipedia, ... and eBay, of course.

I am actually sitting with dad and typing this update - the great thing about a Chromebook. Dad's home has Wi Fi, so thought I could actually do an update.

Firstly, sadly, when I said Dad is poorly, I mean that he is now drifting, having had yet another stroke. He just wants to go Home. He is very peaceful and the care is stunning so although I don't want to say Goodbye, but I know he will be going to Heaven, and I will see him again one day. He told me yesterday he wants to go Home, and that he is missing Mum. So hard to realise, but a lot of positives in such a negative time. I have had the privilege of knowing an amazing man for over 55 years, and even now is is half asleep with a beautiful smile on his face.

As I said my back had been playing up ... well my osteopath said I could look on it as good news!!!! For the last 3 years I have struggled, some days terribly, with the CFS ... yet he thinks I am doing so well that my horrific injury of 1982 is now able to become a separate entity. So looking at it that way I could see cause for celebration, and certainly nice to be able to tell dad that after he and mum have been so worried about me.

Jiffy has also been to the vets as he has a small infection in one of his anal glands. Marni has seen him 3 times now, and if there is no improvement next time then he may need a mini op. He was not great on his walk this morning. I had told him dad was poorly and I wonder if he has understood what I was saying.

Anyway, on a brighter note, here are the photos of Glastonbury Tor I promised you ... we had a great day for the walk as the view was amazing.

Well worth the climb )

Dad's asleep at present so I will try to get some more bits done, but doubt I will be focused enough to go through my f-list ... sorry

Kidnapped By CFS

debris4spike: (Do Not Disturb - James!)
That sounds like a book title that would be a winner!!

Actually I have good news in that I have managed not to have to cancel any work, but other than that I have been wiped out.  So yet again I have been a hopeless friend ... so sorry, feel free to de-friend me, as I know I have been missing.

I am a bit better today, but poorer as I have treated myself to a Chromebook so that I now aim to try to catch up with all those long due replies to your comments.

Today Jiffy and I went to see Dad to find there was a concert so we went as well.  The routine was great with well known sing-along things.  The final one was the Okte Cokie ... and I got dragged into helping.  I could blame the the CFS, but basically I just think I am out of shape ... I was puffed!!!

Oh well no other news as I ahave not done much.

Sorry again, hope all is well with you all.

As I said when I found this meme I would be doing it, although maybe not each day. However the following day [livejournal.com profile] teragramm started to "wake up" LJ, and so I am now using it to do an intro to those who don't me.

So for those who know me, you needn't read and get bored!

It's me, me, me )

I am aiming to get back to LJ more, as over the last couple of years I have had to be more absent than I used to be. At least this LJ-push has really pushed me as well.
debris4spike: (Spike - LiveJournal)
[livejournal.com profile] teragramm has suggested we should encourage folks who miss the good old days of LJ flists taking a long time to read to friend each other. I've done a few of these memes in the last year or so, and added some very cool people to my flist as a result. Go to her LJ to join in the original comment thread, or simply friend folks who comment here, assuming anyone does.

Here are [livejournal.com profile] teragramm's rules:

If you answer this post with "I'm in", there are 5 rules.

RULE 1. If you answer this post you must friend everyone else who answers this post. (I will post a complete list in a week or two, just so you don't miss anyone.)

RULE 2. Being/having been, a part of the Buffy/Angel fandom is suggested but not a deal breaker. (I have some awesome friends who have never been part of fandom.)

RULE 3. After you have "met" your new friends (and given them a fair chance.) If you feel you have nothing in common with them, you are free to unfriend them, with no hard feelings.

RULE 4. You must pimp this post in your LJ (with a link to the post.)

RULE 5. Sometime after you have made new friends, you must post an "all about me" post, as an introduction.

So fingers crossed we can make some new friends and expand our lj family.

And I am in!


I have already gained a few new names on my f-list .. many of which are names I have seen around for ages. I hope that it works, and in doing so I will be able to re-focus on my old-style LJ posting, and be able to bore you all soon!!

Yay

Sorry for the delays in replying.

YAY!!!

I think I am back up to date with all the past comments!  If I have missed someone, sorry.

Off to make myself a "cold-cure" hot drink to celebrate!

Just to say, with the problems they have, I have the new style Friends page ... I really, really don't like it!

May The 12th

debris4spike: (Stone sculpture)
Yesterday being the 12th of the month it is "Diary Day", on [livejournal.com profile] monthlydiaryday ... I seem to only get this done every other month.

Anyway ... here goes ....

The alarm sounded too loud this morning ... but I was a good girl, crawled out of bed, showered, had breakfast, got lunch ready, read my Bible reading for the morning (1 Kings 1 - 2) and then headed off to work.

The shift was in "Clinical Measurements" and is part of the technical side of ill health.  I spent the morning ina "flow" clinic ... men with prostrate problems who have difficulties passing a smooth stream of wee.  It's all timed and measured ... then sent off to the specialist.

In the afternoon I was calibrating and cleaning "sleep" kits ... the testing equipment that is used to see if someone has sleep apnoea. So all in all a more different day in a hospital than most people would expect.

Then home, and I made a bacon & cheese pasta (enough for 3 days as there's only me) ... and then computer time.

I started off my checking through LJ, and catching up with comments etc, then updated the great news about my mum's breast cancer improvement, and my dad's skin cancer surgery.  Then I got some final icons made for the [livejournal.com profile] season20in20 latest round (I did a Blakes 7 set), and then wrote to my brother, and also emailed my dad's doc to check on his prescription.  My dad, sadly, has Alzheimer's and so I try to keep tabs on what's happening with him.

And so to bed.

A normal day - but actually got quite a bit done.

Hi

As ever Fridays are hectic - so although I have time to scribble a post, haven't time to catch up today ... but promise I will ASAP!

Hope you all are safe from the cold and or wind/rain ... depending on what part of the world you are in.  We are OK here - but very windswept.

On another note ... Still looking for ease from my cough!

New Year 2014

debris4spike: (Eternal Refuge gif + my name)
I am so far behind then I shall never catch up ... so PLEASE, if you posted anything at all in the last month that I need to see aim me in that direction.

I am going to catch up with all your comments, but can't attempt to catch up with your news - I am so sorry.  However, as of now, I will attempt to keep up with you all ... and will endevour to post daily from now on ... just to keep myself focussed, if nothing else.

Hoping you all had a good Christmas, and a happy New Year ... and have managed to already break your New Year Resolutions, as I have!N  (And I only made 1!!)

Not Yet Here!

debris4spike: (Christmas Tree + James)
But am making the effort to say I'm not here, in the effort to get back on-line.

Dad's pc seems to be working for a moment, and I am awake enough to have the time to type ... although mot the time to also read my friend's news ... I'm a bad friend.

Life is slowly tottering along - the virus on my diaphragm is horrific, and my doc cheered me up that I may have another month before it goes.  Still, at least I know I'm not infectious ... just super-annoying to be around!

Hope you all had a great Christmas.  Mine was great - especially watching Jiffy open his new toys ... a fluffy/ squeaky squirrel, similar but a chicken and a plastic squeaky Christmas cracker.  I do have a few photos that I may try and post tomorrow.

I will try and get comments answered - although some date back weeks, I'm sure.

Sorry for being a poor friend

*hugs*

The LJ Revival Meme

Apparently I am not the only one who is noting the lack of LJing at present, and so this meme is going around at present that I have snagged from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lupina78


It's about me ... again )


So, snag and get LJ back busy again.

Or - just scribble something about nothing (like I usually do!!)

How Weird

debris4spike: (James - London 2011 - flashing colours)
I have had my Kindle over two years and have just reised I can actually use it to get internet on .... I am just weird .... or slow .... or mad???

In fact I am typing this on my Kindle now.

Sorry if this is old news to everyone else!!!

Oh well .... back to Spuffy .... my real use for this gadget.
debris4spike: (Grr.aargh)
Is it just me, or have they changed the layout for posting again?
