Not So Good

Apologies for my absence but I haven't been very well. I have been backwards and forwards to the Doctor who along with the NHS have been brilliant. I'm still awaiting blood results but the emergency scan I had within 48 hours of it being ordered by the Doc, thanks to a cancellation proved normal. I'm count my blessings  as I'm a very well person normally, so to feel unwell has really got me down. Everything has been a struggle because of the pain and tiredness I been experiencing due to the lack of sleep. 

When you reach your sixties you seem to hear, all too frequently that someone you know in your age group has passed and this happened only this week when my SiL's father had a massive heart attack and died aged 62, despite being airlifted to hospital. That's no age. He'll be missed by the family. 


Christmas has slowly visited my home and the tree and decorations are finally in place. There are 2 battery sets of lights to go on the bays later today when/if it stops raining. I must recommend these sets of LED battery lights available form all sorts of places.  We got our first ones 2 years  from Wilko and managed to pick up 3 more sets  on offer at £3.75 instead of £5 with batteries included. We did invest in some extra batteries from Poundland, 24 AA Kodak batteries for £2 (I know its a bit of an oxymoron). The lights have 8 functions and automatically come on for 8 hours and go off for 16, furthermore the batteries last for 30 days on average.
They are ideal for dressing my small conifers in pots near the front door and anywhere you don't have an outside socket.  

I discovered these  picture ornaments in my bargain box, the place I put all the after Christmas sale stuff ready for the following year.  I'll be searching my phone for suitable photos to insert.
 

I've had a couple of very good yellow sticker shops and I'll report on them shortly. I'm loving having to think on my feet when I get the ingredients home and turn then into meals etc Well that's all for now, I have a four legged little hairy friend whom I'm totally in love with waiting for a walk as the rain has finally subsided. The wind or rain doesn't bother him in the slightest but it does me! 


Bye for now, Tx

  1. Hope you get health issues sorted ASAP - very true what people say about being 60+ - bits start failing - then aged 70+ bits start falling off!

  4. Get well soon and do not put too much pressure on yourself over Christmas. Enjoy what you can do and don't worry about the rest!

  5. I'm sorry to hear you haven't been well, but I hope you're on the mend now. And yes the NHS is wonderful (given half a chance). Scary stuff hitting 60+ though isn't it. When I hear people not being well or being in pain (or sadly even dying suddenly) it makes me treasure my health all the more. All the more reason to look after it I guess.

    1. Absolutely. I have been in persistent pain and I hate taking pills which has made it worse. But as I said to the doctor, I'm making the symptoms if I do. I want to know what it is.

  6. Sorry to hear that you are still having health worries, so sorry to hear of your families loss too. That is no age to go is it :-(

    Lots of health worries in my family at the moment too, although a brand new grandchild and another baby due on Christmas Day is lifting everyone's spirits a bit.

    Bertie is so cute!

  9. So sorry to hear about the death in the family, far far too young to go! Hope you're feeling better soon. Getting old isn't much fun at times and can certainly curtail some of our activities at times. Bertie is so cute!!

  14. What a doll baby! Did you change your blog address? The link I have on my sidebar doesn't work. Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather. It is sad to hear how many people pass as we get older. It makes us appreciate the time that we have, though.

  15. Fur babies lift spirits no matter what! I'm sorry for your loss and your illness and hope all is sorted quickly. I've been sick for going on three weeks and the coughing at night is driving me crazy...I will check again and see how you fare.

  16. How Lemeridian funding service  grant me a loan!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm Lea Paige Matteo from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to lemeridian funding service for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, I was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, I was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to Le_meridian funding service and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Lisa, I was also granted a loan of $216,000.00 So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 1.9% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact Le_meridian funding service. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, I'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com Or lfdsloans@outlook.com} or Text through Whatsapp +1-989 394 3740.
