Good Afternoon

Oh hell what another warm no make that hot day here in my part of the world, I have to have the air conditioner on like I have done for the last few days.

Yesterday I was up at 6am with Leo, I was not a happy chappy as I had told Jessica that her and Leo could stay but she would have to get up with him. Well as it turned out on Saturday night she called in to pick up her house keys as she was going home for the night and Leo got out of the car to see papa and wouldn't leave so what did papa say “go get in bed with nanna” so Leo stayed and Jessica went home and that meant I had to get up with him in the morning.

On a different note Tim is on afternoon work again, and that means for me a nice quiet afternoon and evening. Recently I have found that I am not eating as much, this morning I made pancakes for breakfast I ate only 1 of them. When I went to get fresh bread I bought myself some hot chips for lunch but ate only 6 chips, I have put the rest of the aside and will reheat them for tea tonight I am not wasting $2.95. Thankfully the air fryer reheats them nicely. Nothing wrong with eating less..........

I have been in a lot of pain today with my back,any movement causes pain and yes I have taken pain relief and it has helped but still the pain is there.

Jessica went back to her place this morning after her run it is nice when she does that although most of the time her being here doesn't bother me.

I have also bought a couple of other personalised things for Christmas this morning good thing Tim doesn't know how much I spend on things at Christmas time, because trust me he would complain because he likes to complain.

Well this is a post about nothing much just this and that which is fine nothing wrong with that either. 


  1. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Hope your back is somewhat behaving better. Pain is no fun... I've had my share as well the last couple of weeks. Monday evening I got released from the hospital where I'd been for 6 days. For a very minor wound, my rare autoimmune disease needed to have one of those flare-ups again. Like one time when I pricked my hand on sharp holly leaves and I got such a terrible Oedema that Pieter had to rush me to the ER. Than I got almost completely paralyzed and a few more times it acted up. This time my hand got so swollen that it looked awful. They had to open up my finger top and inside hand, to see if something was inside. No, but still the fever and the swelling + pain persisted.
    Tomorrow morning I do have a checkup and hope to be making some progress.
    Good for you to eat less; it is very much portion related as the sizes of plates also have changed since the 1960s. All those changes slip in slowly and we eat it all up...
    Sending you hugs,

    PS Monday evening (our time) I post about the Train Ride...

    1. Oh sorry to hear about all your suffering, makes my back pain seem trivial...........

  2. Hope your back soon gets better.
    You may lose weight not eating as much. It's different sometimes when the shift changes of your husband.

    1. Yeah would be nice to lose some weight my back is not as bad today thankfully

  3. I sure hope someone pitches in to take care of you when YOU need it...

    1. Don't be silly the only to take care of me is me



Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on? When it comes to disagreements with others what do you do are you one to...
