OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

Good morning Barb, hope you're fit and well.

How's the counselling going, hope the situation is resolved or at least a lot better.
I'm thinking of you emoticon

The little indian summer didn't arrive and we seem to be in the throes of the 'seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness' especially today where l can't even see the bottom of the garden!
And it's so chilly! Brrr!

My a arm's still pretty painful, not sure if the colder weather makes it ache more and l'm on medication for a sinus infection which has caused a lot of pain under my right eye...seems to be on the mend at last, it doesn't actually hurt to breathe in any more!
Apart from that feeling chipper emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope you're fit and well.

My shoulder has been playing up a bit over the last week after l got a bit ambitious and pegged the washing out myself, it's the reaching up and backwards l find difficult!
l didn't sleep so good for a couple of nights as it's painful to lie down but last might it all caught up with me and l just zonked...slept for eleven and a half hours straight...lol...l feel so much more alert today and the pain seems a little easier too!

Sorry to hear you've family trouble again, the councillor will be a big help to you, it's nice there is someone you can confide in. l know what it's like being a mother hen, please take care and look after yourself!

Thankyou for the lovely positive comments about me, l feel so much fitter and healthier (apart from my shoulder) l only wish l'd done it years ago instead of waiting until l'm older...my skin's not as elastic as it was and is beginning to sag a bit...lol...it's good job l won't be displaying it!

The weather's still dull and cloudy but the weathermen are forecasting a little indian summer beginning tomorrow, when it's supposed to hit 73 degrees, and lasting into october which will be nice if it materialises.

My friend, Ruth, turns sixty five tomorrow, she's organised a little get together for twenty five ladies which will be nice, we're all meeting up for lunch at her house...it's been catered for by another lady who is in big demand for wedding food etc so should be delicious, l'm going to enjoy myself!

Well, take care and have a wonderful day emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope all is well with you.

It's the long August Bank Holiday week-end here, they're notorious for wet weather but today is gorgeous.

We're starting to put the garden borders to bed now the flowers are going over so will be doing that this morning them might venture out for a walk, not sure as we're hoping to do that tomorrow.
The weather has been quite chilly the last few days with some good downpours too so I'm hoping it stays fine. I think I might feel the cold a bit more now I'm a bit thinner!

Had a lovely afternoon out with a friend yesterday, so nice to have a cuppa and a chat. I see you've done the same with Elaine now she's back. I tried to comment but your feed has gone back to private again. emoticon

Have a wonderful week-end emoticon
