JULY 2015

I decided that this is my year - well, am getting off to a slow start - but have kept going.

Am not following any challenges right now. Am just trying to keep cool in our very warm weather - in the 3 digits most days. And that has resulted in more water retention - so the doctor has upped my water pills and the potassium. Am concentrating on getting more potassium in my diet.

I decided that this is my year - well, am getting off to a slow start - but have kept going.

Am not following any challenges right now. Am just trying to keep cool in our very warm weather - in the 3 digits most days. And that has resulted in more water retention - so the doctor has upped my water pills and the potassium. Am concentrating on getting more potassium in my diet.

Am getting to the club at least 3 to 4 times a week - and am starring to use the elliptical some - it is hard for me but am determined to do at least 3 to 5 minutes on it.

And, of course, am truly enjoying my knitting. Started a new cowl pattern in a light purple - a fun knit.

Good afternoon Barb, hope you're well.

l have the two littlest grandchildren and their friend for the day on a Tuesday, l love it they're such cards!
Yesterday we went to the park and then they played in the garden as the weather was so nice, they were bouncing on the trampoline and giggling away.
Amelia goes to nursery in the afternoon and l have Joseph and his little girlfriend River to look after, Joseph's seventeen months and River is thirteen months so it's fun!
l then collect Amelia and Belle after school and take them back home, my son has changed his shifts at work and he's usually home when we get back.

l'm just nicely back from the kneeler group, we don't seem to get a lot of sewing done but we do a lot of talking...lol...it's nice to be with friends again after missing a few with being poorly.

l've been given the all clear at the doctors and hospital and am finally feeling like l've turned a corner, still a few symptoms left hanging on from the virus l had four months ago but l definitely feel a lot better and am now sleeping through the night again which l think makes a big difference.

The weather's changed a bit, my washing was almost dry but is now blowing on the line in the middle of a right downpour...it can stay there too...lol...l'm definitely not going out to fetch it in in this!

Hope you have a wonderful week, enjoy your barbecue emoticon

Good morning Barb,
Glad to hear thar things are going well with you.
l'm feeling loads better, just one more check-up with the doctor on Wednesday and then that's it.

Our weather hasn't been too bad of late though we've had some thunderstorms which came with lots of rain. Today isn't too bad, it's sunny but there's a strong, cold wind blowing and we had a ground frost over night. lt was forecast so David managed to cover his seedlings after he got caught out a fortnight ago and lost all his runner beans.

Hope you have a wonderful week-end emoticon
