Evening all, glad your Dad's op went well Lovewine. What a charmer your son's ex-girlfriend is - not! He will get over it in time, but I remember going through this with my son and it is very hard not really being able to comfort them.
Rosie, glad you had a nice weekend. I enjoyed lunch with my aunt and did manage to get my nails done! Our Farmers market has vegetables, organic fish and meat, a bakery or two, eggs, cakes, chocolate, beeswax candles, jewellery, plants and herbs, game, all sorts really. We get our eggs there every month and sometimes we treat ourselves to something nice, this week we got gournet sausage rolls for lunch. They were yummy.
Joan I am sorry to hear you are still having problems with your nails. Have you tried a nail strengthener? I am using one called miracle cure from Sally Hansen and it seems to be helping.
I hope the weekend is being relaxing if the weather is not good. I am just back from a walk in the local park with my work friend and her little dog it felt like autumn today blowing a gale and constant drizzle.
After popping her little dog home we went for a lovely lunch with a glass of wine and a potter around the shops in Muswell Hill.
I know exactly what you mean Rosie about feeling like you are skiving off, when you have actually been through and are still going through so much, us ladies need to learn not to be so hard on ourselves. I am the last one to speak though as I have not had a husband for some 25 years plus now it means I am the family social worker and also at work its the same, I have worked for the same employer for 20 years this Dec so I am like part of the furniture and people do put a lot on to you when you are usually efficient and productive.
Sorry to hear your Dad's are not doing so well at the moment, I hope they are feeling better soon.
My younger brother is marching tomorrow at the remeberance ceremony, my Dad always went right up until his last year, bless him, he was part of the HMS Amythyst convoy on The Black Swan which was part of the Yangtse incident, there are not many of the members left now that are able to take part, therefore they ask if thier children will wear the medals and take part for them. I have marched once myself when one year my brother had the flu, it felt strange but I felt very proud to be allowed to take part with my father and grandfathers medals on from world war I and II. I will sky plus it this year, it is emotional and coincidentally also would have been my mothers birthday 11th Nov.
just sending a quick message - scan all ckear whoop whoop !
Lovewine sorry to hear about your dad too, I hope you enjoyed your holiday as much as you could you deserved to have some you time. - its always nice to return home to a house as you left it, my lot drive me mad lol
Thanks Rosie re the expanders i dont think he will put in as much next time but it has made them much more comfortable, and im glad your dad now knows you have been poorly too its better its out there even if the details arent x
hi to everyione else i hope you are all doing well, i better get on with what im paid for....... i never get any time anymore but im not complaining 🐵
Just a quick catch up today as I will have to leave shorly for my massage.
Rosie, I hope the consultant had a good reason for ringing you it is always such a worry.
Lovewine I am jealous of your lovely walks on the beach and pub meal yum, I know I have only just come back from Devon but it is soon in the past when you go to work each day.
I am hoping to start a yoga class locally I will see if its any good, I don't fancy going to the local sports centre as I have in the past the classes are too large and I don't think that they would be able to give the attention needed, I feel rather decrepit these days with the aches and pains and tiredness. and tight veins which by the way seem to be getting worse rather than better, I have a physio appointment booked for the 26th hopefully that will do some good. I have had a reply from the endocrinologist regarding my histology at last, apparently they did not take enough fluid to get any diagnosis! I have to wait until my next appointment in Jan to have a discussion about where do we go from here another biopsy or wait and see approach?
I will plump for another biopsy if I can, I hate the feeling of unfinished business and not knowing.
Must run hope you have a good day Cassie
