LAZY MONDAY

After such a busy weekend Mick has had an understandably quiet day today. He has eaten exceptionally well though and not choked at all. I made a Shepherd's pie with the remains of the lamb joint and he really enjoyed it.

One of the side effects of the patches is a difficulty in passing urine. I have noticed that Mick has been going a lot less frequently but he doesn't seem to be having any discomfort when he does and also, although less frequent, he does seem to passing a good amount.


I must say, it's quite handy using my blog to keep a record of things. It is so easy for one day to become another without me realising how much time has passed. By writing this blog I can look back at my previous posts and see when Mick did what. A sort of "log of logs" (bit of schoolboy humour there I think!).

If you recognise this flower you'll understand the validity of this photo on this post.

Good evening from 'Exhausted of Portugal, who wants that cup of tea real bad'. i am very pleased to see it was a good weekend for you all. And things seems stable.
Here, life has been quite difficult over recent days. There is motion and it is unstable, but I'm not going into that. I have had a bad secondary effect from the cold since Saturday, which has done undesirable things in my chest - scary. Felt very weak over the weekend, but I can never really stop. It is a bad trap. There is so much work outstanding, there are people in trouble waiting for mails, ordinary mails un answered. AND I want to do my blog-posts, but sometime the time melts like snow.
I have just seen that you have read Analia's post. Tricky, really sad. Maybe a lot more of have very hard lives, but it doesn't come out unless it is a black & white situation, like yours. You cannot pretend it is otherwise, as you are living it every minute of every day & you make it clear. My oen life is incredibly more complex than most people realise. My 'real'would be totally unreal to the majority of people and I know that. At times, it is beyond my own comprehension & I honestly don't know where it is going. But it feels like a small sailing ship crossing a very large stormy ocean sometimes.
Enough! Ruth, last Friday I sent you two photo-mails. Through the past 3 days, I have received advice mails saying they are delayed because of some incomprehensible problem with btinternet. i am told to do nothing, no need to send again. So have you receievd. Today, i sent you something different about the Beatles new CD. Did it arrive? If you still haven't got the photos, I'll send them again, because I want you to have satars anbd skies and flowers! There! Night-night! Oh, BTW, I got real sick AND I got on with it. So I guess that makes me both a man & a woman!:-))

Hi Ruth, just catching up with your life here. I'm glad you and Mick had such a nice weekend. You're doing better than I am, keeping 2 blogs up to date! I haven't had a chance to update mine yet this week but hope to do it tomorrow...

Take care,
Mauigirl

I'm not quite sure about your flowers - are they what we call johnny jump-ups? They are lovely anyway! (They're not blooming now, in November, are they? Though if they are johnny jumpups they could be!)

Sweet peas, of course - I knew that (but am a bit rusty on my flowers as I took a year off gardening!) Yes, Johnny jump ups are violas.
