Kathy took me to have blood tests done both my normal 6mth check and the tests for the neurologist

However, one of the tests the neurologist wants isn't covered by Medicare and costs around $250, so I said not to bother with that one.

Kathy had to second Covid test as she made the mistake of mentioning that she was sick of sneezing to her boss. She has hayfever.


Woke at 5am, had a wash and called Tasha, however, the door was locked this meant I had to walk out naked to unlock it but found I couldn't and had to wake Tim to open the door. Leo must be here.

Read some blogs, answered some letters and watched 6 episodes of ANZAC BATTLEFIELDS. I am right into both world wars I find them interesting.


Woke at 4.50am and had to get Tim to help me get out of bed as I had cramps in my calves.

First day of school since June.

Having a reasonable day being able to stand and sit pretty ok.

Started doing the calendars for next year, thankfully I saved the work as I went along because Chrome shut down on me before I finished. So I will attempt to finish it tomorrow.

Tasha came down to settle me down to listen to my book at 2pm as she has been doing for a long time now. However, I said I have to meet Leo but she said she will meet him in the afternoon as she knows how worn out I get by 2pm. I just want to lay down and listen to a book for a while, say 3 or 4 hours.


Awake and up at 4.30 needing to pee, I laid there thinking how long has it been since I last peed answer 14.5hrs. No bloody wonder I needed to go.

Had a phone call from the pathology people telling me on Saturday they didn't take enough blood. So I had to go down and have more taken.

At midday I had another call from the pathology one of the vials taken this morning broke and they needed more blood. This time they came to me and the lady told me in future I should ask the doctor to request a home visit.


A new day and also second jab day, Tim is taking me.

I thought Tasha was going to shower me but no she will do it this afternoon.

Had my second jab no drama, although Tim was in mood because he didn't really want to take me, standing with his arms folded.

Discovered that Leo didn't take his meds, I rang Jess and told her in case the school rings.


A new day is here, I slept well enough. In pain with my knees and right arm not the arm, I had the jab in, also a lot of back pain.

Hot enough for the A/C today starting to feel like summer is around the corner.

I have been very restless all day, unable to sit for more then a few minutes.

Sue's birthday.


Another hot day on the way 30 degrees again, so maybe another A/C day.

Ordered something for Daemon & Freya for Christmas.

So much to sort out and me with daily struggles.

Boy, your health system is a real mixed bag, isn't it? Breaking vials, not taking enough- but then coming to do it at home. I haven't had anything like that with my GP, although they and the urologist don't seem to work well together.
