Hi all been a while. In just don't seem to either have the energy or mainly the time lately Since I last blogged my bro and sil to be they get married 25th in a civil ceremony in Holland came over for a visit and to discuss Robin (little bro)s health as you know he was in priory for treatment at the beginning of the year It was great to see him after 18+yrs and to meet Caroline who he has been with for 14yr.
They called at mothers on way over and ended up getting social worker out as she had lost the plot and was really nasty with everyone at the moment she has moved in with my sis Pat but really needs proper supervision as Pat has medical issues and problems of her own.
Anyway we had a good week sightseeing here in Lake district visiting place even I have never been. By the time the visit was over Robin had gained a little weight and didn't look so drawn. I wish we had got together earlier but maybe the time wasn't right till now who knows.
When they left they left a shopping list of things they would like taking over when we go though no date has been set yet.
I have been naughty when they came over they brought me cheeses but I have rationed it and shared some with Ian's parents.
Ian is having problems with his hands he is in so much pain he is finding it difficult to work but he's trying to push till schools end next week for the summer We have visited gp twice and he's had various bloods done this morning after 6 weeks he has got a hospital appointment but is another month away I am going to ring Monday t6o see if they can get him an urgent one or else he is going to have to go sick from work.
To say the least I am stressed worried and retaining fluid due to this heat wave we are having Though gp has given me some diuretics to help out. I have been so fatigued due mostly to the heat but the last 2 days have felt better in myself.
Today is a little cooler so I am going to a coffee morning in our village hall and this afternoon walking up to Tottlebank church about a mile away they are having their summer fayre with a folk group and various other entertainment which sounds good.
These are the first social activities I have decided to attend this year without others trying to persuade me to attend and I am looking forward to the church one as I will get a 2 mile walk into the bargain up hill going and downhill back through tree lined lanes probably take my camera you never know what you see when just strolling
My b/p is ok but I do wish the weight would move I still haven't lost the gain caused by meds at beginning of the year but I am still positive. I probably need to eat more than I do I think that is the main problem I never feel hungry but keeping focused and looking forward

  It sounds like you've had a very full summer. I hope that Ian's hands feel better soon. And I hope that you have a good time at the summer fair.

    hi carolian, overall you sound in good spirits. mmm you've got a cheese pal in me, too. I live off the stuff. plus the heat drives me nuts, too. i don't function in it at all. and it's much harder to cool off than warm up in winter.
take good care of yourself and your family, as I can see you're doing.
greetings! hugs, rosie
