  • Microblog Monday – crafty thoughts

    I went to the craft fair this weekend.  G came along as well, but was too tired to last long. So I was by myself for a while.  I went to two presentations that made me think.  The first was a show about repurposing and mending to create vintage looks.  It was about how people…

  • Insert swear word here

    Dear government agency, When I complained last year about the decision to no longer offer opening hours outside 8:30-4:30 weekdays ( the time many taxpayers such as myself are working) you told me that this was because your digital was superior.  It’s not.  It can’t cope with the complex claims I used to take in…

  • Travel

    Things I like about traveling On an airplane, once it has taken off, looking down at the land. On an airplane, just sitting in my chair and chilling out, it’s a chance to just relax Travelling by train The chance to walk around a neighbourhood, looking at the supermarket and the daily living things. Seeing…

  • Microblog Monday…

    I have these thoughts, but when I sit to write my blog posts they are gone. So random statuses. I went back to work mid-last week. Very tiring the first few days, but movement helped.  I did discover walking around the block at work was too far for me. G has been sick since I…

  • Things I wish I had done before my surgery

    Some thoughts 1. Taken a belly selfie.  One of the side effects is some swelling/ bloating.  I can’t tell what is last few years weight gain and what is surgery puffery.  Plus I could have done a whole series of belly selfies on FB! 2. Done a temporary tattoo of a dashed line and a…

  • Update

    Was discharged from hospital on Saturday. Spent the weekend doing little.  But my husband, who needs to be the one doing the heavy work, is sick. So not awesome. I feel guilty for having to ask him to do things I could normally do. And J still has the attitude.  I don’t know what to…

  • Observations from a hospital bed

    Firstly, I wasn’t expecting to still be here.  The original plan (as I understood) was that I have the surgery Thursday morning, stay overnight and be discharged Friday morning.   So, the surgery happened earlyish Thursday morning, a laparotomy, so I will have a larger scar.  I spent most of the day dozing and medicated.…

  • Still Around

    Stressed at work- a project due date got moved from end of September to September 4. With a week to,complete it.  Done now, or at least that part but brain fried. Stressed at home.  J is 19 and has attitude to match. I lack the patience on this. He seems to be angry all the…

  • Games I play

    I wrote about distractions, and then failed to elaborate.  I have found that I have a maximum of about three different games I can play on a given device.   So, on my personal iPad I have Family Guy:the quest for stuff.  I am conflicted about this game because I don’t like family guy very…

  • Bad news Thursday

    Not a good day. I saw the GP a few weeks ago about the excessive bleeding I was having with my period.  Apparently the technical term is flooding.  So off I went for an ultrasound. And today I found out I have a 7.1 cm fibroid.  Which is causing some issues with my uterus.  Surgery…
