2011.07.03 My Day

Its been a quiet weekend this weekend and I haven't really done a lot as I have not had an awful lot of energy again and I have had trouble moving around with pain in my lower back and hips..  Have done most of the washing and got it air-dried but it will be tomorrow night before I start the ironing and then I probably won't get it all done.

I have however made some Basil Pesto, Basil Vinegar and Basil Oil - so have done a little bit of work.  Still have loads to do, but at least its a start.

I went to the veg shop yesterday but didn't buy too much.  However I did buy two large pineapples and some cooking apples.  I have in mind to do some pineapple and apple jelly; but we will see I could well change my mind before then.

I have to go into hospital this coming Thursday for an endoscopy.  I am having an anaesthesia as I have a dry mouth; I do not produce saliva and have to use an artificial saliva spray.  I gag easily too and I would rather not know anything about it.  It is worrying me though as I don't really like being messed about with, but as long as it helps find out what is causing the discomfort I have been experiencing then it will be a job well done.  However to be honest I am not looking forward to it.  I have booked the Thursday and the Friday off work to be on the safe side.  So I am only in work three days this week.

I have however beeing working on my crotchet "Rainbow" blanket again.  I am pleased with the progress on this and it is growing very slowly, still a way to go though, but it will be lovely and warm when it is finished.  Something to cuddle up under on a cold winter's night.  I have in mind to do a pink version of the same blanket too, but I want to get all the other throws etc finished before I do so.

I hope you all have a good week I am up the wooden stairs to Bedfordshire.

Catch you all soon




  1. Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling great. I can imagine that you aren't looking forward to the endoscopy - I wouldn't be either! You're wise to have booked a couple of days off work. Let's hope they can find out what the problem is and do something about it.

  2. Will be keeping you in my thoughts Thursday *H* :)

  3. You still manage to put more into a day than lots of folks ;o) Hope all goes well for you on Thursday and you get your questions answered, in the meantime - TAKE IT EASY!
    Very best wishes
