Sorry I still haven't got around to replying to your comments. Being back at work has left me tired the rest of the week, so am trying to be good. Haven't yet been to the gym in 6 weeks, but hope to try again next week.
It was hard though, as in the midst of starting to feel sorry for myself, we learnt (as a dept) that one of the team has been diagnosed with a late-stage cancer. She is 42, and will fight, but it really brings home how fragile life can truly be.
Anyway, yet again I chose the subject over at photo_scavenger
so thought I would share my post with those who aren't members. The subject was "10 STEPS"
... in other words walk 10 steps out of your door, and take a photo -( The FrontCollapse )( The BackCollapse )
...And back to work today. I only work 7 1/2 hours a day, but I am tired and aching. At least I felt almost 100% OK through the day. The doctor had told me I could be asleep for 6 weeks, but I managed to get back to work after just 4 weeks. Luckily I had booked tomorrow off anyway, It didn't help that I actually fell partly down staires when I was half asleep and broke one of my toes!
I do hope that I can get caught up with all the replies I owe .... having done nothing for 4 weeks, it certainly seems wrong that I am so far behind with everything. I am sure I have missed birthdays, as well ... so, sorry.
A friend of mine knows I am interested in the history of both World Wars, and with my name she sent me this link ... The fate of Deborah D51, Mark IV
. I have actually booked to go to The Somme battlefields in April, but now I need to go back to visit this museum!
I have become one of the maintainers for photo_scavenger
and it is my month to pick the weekly promts, so thought I would share the photos with you that I used for my prompt of HEAD( 3 HeadsCollapse )
I am (as aver) sorry that I (again) disappeared. The flu that started at the beginning of this month is still with me. I have spent the last 2 - 3 weeks sleeping. Over the last couple of days I have been able to stay awake during the day, so progress is being made; however I am still sleep a minimum of 12 hours overnight. Jiffy is happy to have me around, and as he loves sleeping he is quite happy to snooze the days away. I feel guilty about the work missing me, and I have missed a few birthdays here ... so all in all I have had a fuzzy time!!
On another note it is weird to think that it was 2 years ago today that Mum died. Can't believe that it's been that long, but as Brenda pointed out when she text me this morning, Mum is still very much alive in our hearts and minds.
I am not around much, but had spotted this meme that kazzy_cee
have been doing. I liked the look of it, but have recently started too many memes only to abandon them. However manoah
has done the whole thing today so thought I would also give it a go .....( 70 questions and answers, more or less.Collapse )
I have just been told by my good friend that although I export my LJ posts to DW, they are not showing up on the reading page.
So for LJ friends who no longer check in there, sorry - I haven't ignored you, but DW doesn't show the posts where it should ... so if you want to catch up read my journal.
This was originally post on Dreamwidth
I joined photo_scavenger
when it started and in her latest post, curiouswombat
pointed out that a lot of people have drifted away. I will admit I am one of them, despite my best intentions. I wonder how many on my f-list are members ... and if so if they ever have a go. All it is, is one photo-challenge per week.
Anyway, as I'm off sick with flu, I have gone through this years holiday photos to post the last 6 colour challenges. All were in America, July 2017.
Colourful, brown, orange, grey white, blue( This way to the coloursCollapse )
So, pop over and have a go!
Anyway, yesterday was the monthlydiaryday
and I posted there the first time in ages. However, this is all I wrote ...
I slept! Well, drank water, ate some fruit & salad, and slept!
Yes I have managed to get flu, despite having had the flu jab last October!
Hope the rest of you had a better day!
So even though I have loads of comments to reply to, loads of icons to make (I actually signed up for 2 sets of 20), loads of letters to write; but I have a fuzzy brain and an aching body.
Sorry I keep disappearing ... as ever, will try better.
In England we are so lucky to have the NHS.
I work for the NHS - and love it.
However people are always complaining about it - especially the waiting lists.
Well, a colleague of mine's husband found out last month he needed a heart proceedure. He was told it could be a year before he got his appointment, but as they said they could take a cancellation they were lucky and Freddie had his proceedure yesterday ... Yay (and all went well).
HOWEVER, when they got there just before 8 am they were the only ones there ... there were 5 slots. About 20 mins late one of the others turned up, but the others never did.
So all these people who complain should see this, and the fact that 75% of the clinics I work in have at least one non-attending. Routinely they are offered another appointment, and thus more money, more delay in waiting lists .
I don't often get political, but was just so annoyed about these other 3 missing people.
Washroom: showers or baths? bubbles? bath bombs?
I used to love a soak in a bubble bath ... complete with a book to read. However the bath at my house is a bit short to stretch out as it's a small room. However, last year I joined a gym that has a jacuzzi ... so, I have a nice soak there every time I go.
I do like a quick shower ... not ages like some
2. Kitchen: favourite comfort food?
Well, tonight being a Saturday I shall be eating Chicken & Chips (fries) ... still in the paper! That is a great favourite.
I also love tomatoes, grapes (especially red ones), Cadbury milk chocolate, doughnuts, and roast chicken crisps (chips)
... Oh boy, now I am hungry!
