Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I made a Chicken Tikka for dinner, but used a dried spice mix, which I don't usually buy ( trying out new stuff to take in our camper-van). Added the usual shake of Chilli flakes as per my usual routine. Phew! Nearly burnt my face off. We like things hot, but now I am worried I will be up on the loo...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Hubby had his Cystoscopy last Monday. All clear. He goes to yearly checks now and he already knows the date and time for next June! ( as I said, he gets his next appointment handed to him before he has pulled his trousers back up..)

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Fair enough.

Had a mid afternoon walk around the garden centre today, in full sunshine. Made a pleasant change.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yes...but Stanley has been expressing he is more tired since the bladder treatment. That is a new thing. I think it warrants a finger prick.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Stanley. When did you last have a blood test? You may have Anaemia. ( hard to believe as your diet is largely meat based, but if you are not taking in enough Vitamin C it can still happen). Get your Iron levels checked. They can do it with a finger prick nowadays. Sue, I met a distant cousin in York...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Having said that, I see some parts of France will suffer 40C and over.
Crazy world. Extremes are hard for us too, as we aren't used to them.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Flipping Freezing tonight! Got down to -7C somewhere in our state. Might be forced to share body heat with my husband when we go to bed...just can't keep warm! Haven't really needed more food, but one does seek warm food. And I am having a glass of wine despite our rule to not drink on week nights. ...

Deep Joy! -3C here again this morning. Rugged up like the Michelin Man and burning the leccy to keep warm. Lawns were all white up and down the street this morning. Both working in the same space on our respective computers today, making the most of a warm room. We have been here 6 years now, and I'...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

-3C here this morning (and no such thing as central heating)!
We decided against a bike ride, but had a long walk with jackets, scarfs and mittens. It was 6C when we walked the local markets late morning. Very sunny for such a cold day.

I have all the original feet and attachments for my old machine, Sue ( plus all the original paperwork). I soaked the tarnished feet in CLR..But it didn't do much good! I have done some sewing on the machine, but I find the feet terribly narrow and with poor grip to the dogs, meaning one has to work...

True. Sometimes the little problems that annoy you are not important, but just show how much you are in tune with your body that you notice them at all.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Can't drink Beer. Can't drink Spirits/Port/Gin/Sherry/Brandy etc. can't drink "white wine". Can't drink Champagne.
Can only drink one brand of Shiraz/Cabernet which they tell me...will be discontinued soon.
Looks like I will be in dry dock soon...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Today's mission is trying to keep warm. We have a large hailstorm approaching ( probably about two hours from now and heading straight for us). The temperature has been plummeting for the past two hours. Heater is on in the lounge and warming the lower floor of the house ( it is freezing upstairs). ...

Well...I've never seen nappies like THAT before, Stanley. (Are they nappies? Or some sort of medical apparel?) Love the frozen long johns. We can't complain about wet washing here. I would say we get over 300 days a year that washing will dry on the clothes line. Very rare that I have to finish it o...

I am going to go back through some old holiday snaps on the computer tomorrow...I shall forward any interesting ones to Stanley ( though I doubt I have a direct view like that).

Just think how good it will feel in the morning, to come downstairs, and see that lovely fresh looking window and surrounds as the first light comes through.

We did a 3 hour walk instead of a bike ride this morning. My blood sugar was 6.0 when we got back ( yes...I had breakfast before we left) Toward the end of the walk I had wished I had put my folding walking stick in my bag....but I made it without it. I really enjoyed the walk. It was a relief to fi...
