Thank you

Thank you for all your get well wishes and prayers. I think this antibiotic will be the one. I need to give up entomology and start collecting something else instead, coins, stamps, anything but bugs. Sorry to all those people I have had to put off coming. I have missed the visits and banter but it was the right thing to do.

Awaiting results

Thank you all for the kind emails. I would also like to thank the lady that creased up over my frilly knickers and brought the lighter side to my current predicament.
The nurse didn't hang about this morning, grabbed the sample and beat a hasty retreat. I had just emptied the contents of my stomach and the aroma wasn't good. I am starting to feel better and hope to be back to normal very soon.

An update

Sorry I have been slipping on the blog but I'm attention seeking again. I have an infection and on antibiotics to clear it. I will back to normal I'm sure very soon.

Back on track

After my diary disaster I'm back on track. Fortunately my diary had synced with the iPad calendar at some point so I was able to recover quite a bit. Technology is brilliant except when numpties like me press the wrong buttons.
Ellie is providing entertainment. She will do almost anything for porridge. Give a kiss, look as cute as possible, she has definitely mastered the cute face whilst resting on your arm. Her party piece is the meerkat dance she performs. The naughty one (there has to be a bit of naughtiness when Ellie is involved) is stalking the spoon and taking a well timed swoop at the porridge knowing that once any contact is made she has secured the kill.
Dee came today with photo books from her Turkey and Iceland holidays. Time flew by and I visited two places I have never been to.
New medication arrived today which has to be taken every other day.

Oh dear. My thumb caught the iPad screen and completely wiped my calendar entries so I now have no idea who is coming when. Please can you let me know if we had agreed a time and date, so sorry.

Bedford sue

Sue and I have been mates since we were five years old, which is a considerable length of time. Sue took Ellie for a walk outside in the snow, this morning...there was a lot of paw shaking, which was quite funny to watch, and penny built me a snowman. Why does snow bring out the kid in us all? It didn't take Ellie long to work out that if you stand on the rim of a pot it takes your paws out of that wet cold and white stuff. It's great to see the pattern of just three paws. But I think she likes it as it is exploring and Ellie is the noseyist cat I know.
My friends Carole and Trevor couldn't come today because of the weather. Sue did my morning care. Rented a film on apple tv last night, I was unable to stay awake to the end so will catch up this morning. I'm such a shandy light weight. I slept during the day as well. The rugby was exciting to watch. Ipswich won again 3-2 I'm so pleased we have got back a winning streak.

A day of two sides

Good news is that the iPads have been ordered by the QE hospital for people with speech problems from MND. And as one gift arrives another great gift is taken away, rest in perfect peace. That's all I have to say today.

Did not do hospice today, penny decided yesterday that an extra day in bed was needed and she was quite right.
