chit chat

Help! I’m sure you know the answer

Well, friends, life goes on. Things are slowly improving here, but the emphasis is on the   s l o w l y . . .   Things seem to have changed with WordPress too. Am I right in thinking that there is no longer a ‘heads up’ when someone comments on / links to / or follows a blog? My settings haven’t changed – no time to see to that.

All input gratefully received with thanks in advance.

 

And there it was! Gone!

And so it went! One minute the bed was there.. the next it had gone, with occupant, to theatre. It was almost 6 hours before I saw it again.

A difficult op, lots more found than expected, but hopefully a good result – and now the long recovery of this part can begin. When I left the occupant was drinking tea and wired to all sorts of monitors and oxygen. I finally arrived home sometime before midnight and crashed into bed. It was a long day…..

 

 

Celebrating the Mundane – Blog Hop

It’s over a month since I’ve been here – and in fact my presence on the web has been severely reduced for a number of reasons. To be honest, the only thing I have been posting is the weekly blog hop. It suddenly occurred to me that you may not know about it, and that you might like to join in, so below is a copy and paste of what you will actually find here. I hope you will consider joining us – the more the merrier, as it were.

We all go through times of uncertainty in our lives. The last two months have been very unsettling at times as DH has been very ill, however there is hopefully and end in sight and things are now a little calmer. Next week, on this day, we will be preparing for him to return to hospital for an operation – what exactly will be done we won’t know until after the event, but we both have a sense of peace about the whole thing, and if all goes well he will be home within days.

This month has been irritating. Our internet signal has dropped continually – and this is really unusual. It would appear that it is due to our overhead wires, but they aren’t due for replacing any time soon, and cable is not an option. So on we go – and the peace and quiet has been wonderful! Maybe it was all planned! Of course I’m not seeing as much as I would like, but normality will return – and I’m sure people understand.

There is another little ‘mishap’ to report this week, though, and that has made me rather cross.

My camera has stopped working :(

It stopped working 2 days after the guarantee expired! I’m in negotiations. Thankfully, due to the memory card, I lost no pictures, but I have nothing other than my iPhone to capture my life until further notice, and that is not always a convenient tool.

Apart from accessing the internet, there are other things that ‘slide’ when life is not normal, and one of those I remembered to my cost. I take a daily medication – thyroxine. I take it religiously, but somehow it was one of the things that took backseat during the ‘traumas’. Sadly I completely forgot until I began to recognise symptoms that I had hoped to not revisit. I’m back into routine now, but they are important and mundane enough to be the subject of today’s picture.

This is just one of the things that I get up to before the early bird. By the time the early bird is up I’m often ready to go back to bed ;) Links for the challenge are below.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange? Am I glad?

Spring, well, this early, is not a good time for orange in the garden. However I do happen to have been dyeing in the garden today – and here are the freshly rinsed fabrics. Orange, green and ….. well, you can see them here.
