2011.03.14 My Evening

I had a busy day at work as per usual, and my legs seem to have been playing up even more than they have been.  I am still waiting for an expedited appointment to go back to see my Consultant, but so far that has not materialised.  We will have to wait and see what happens.  This evening I haven't done too much as I was tired and I am an eternal dreamer. Sometimes you just need space to just be and come too gradually.  Very gradually.

I have been horrified by the reports of what has happened in Japan and my heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the Japanese people at this most terrible of times.  Kinda puts everything else into perspective.

I have spoken to OH's sister on the phone this evening and played catch up.  Chrissy like me is animal mad and any animal becomes part of the family.  She has two King Charles Spaniels Alfie and Lotty and also two cats, Mr Willis and Maddy.  Since we last went to stay Mr Willis has developed a new trick.  Chrissy kept coming down and found that the fridge was open and various things missing including a ham joint. She thought her partner Nick was responsible and blamed him, despite his protestations.  However the cat burglar has been caught red-handed.  He is such an angelic cat and so laid back you find it hard to blame him for long.  New problem how to stop the cat breaking into the fridge! War tactics have been brought into play to try and stop his opportune strikes.Ever the one to take advantage.

It has been a quiet evening here and I have managed to knit one of the two squares for my lilac blanket and have started the second square this evening. Whilst knitting  I have been listening to the TV "Waking the Dead" and currently a little adult humour in Mrs Brown's boys, which I have found hilarious. Its one of the best comedy programmes that I have seen in a long time - although as I have said totally adult humour but one for a good belly laugh!  And I subscribe to the theory that laughter is the best medicine.  

I do like listening to programmes.  I find listening leaves much more to the imagination than constantly watching the box, plus I can get on with other things at the same time.

One thing I would like to say is thank you to all of you who read my ramblings and for your comments - I do look forward to these - sometimes they are a bright light in an otherwise drab day.

Now stop it pattypan - glass half full instead of being blooming empty.  I Must improve my attitude.    As the saying goes Attitude Changes everything - and I am a firm believer in this  - its just every so often I kinda slip!  Now I have told myself off - am going to get myself organised and ready for tomorrow - another day and all that jazz.  Then off up the wooden hill to bedfordshire.

Nighty Night!

Hope this post finds you all well.

Catch up soon





  1. Suggestion for prevention of fridge theft...a child safety lock on the fridge door - my cousin had the same problem and found the child safety lock stopped the little thief in his tracks!

  2. Thanks Rose I will pass that on to her
