Wed, 20 Aug 2014 14:44:16 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762971 I have only got a half day today so I am pleased with that as hubby's toe was really sore this morning he said it had been throbbing all night. Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:35:48 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762219 Well we finally got to the Dr. I have changed his Dr. which he was pleased about and the Dr. told him he had a fungus and infection in his toe so he now has 10 days antibiotics and 3 months fungal medication to take seeing he has had the fungus in his toe for about 2 years I hope the medication clears it up. Mon, 18 Aug 2014 14:56:47 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761669 Took hubby to the Dr. this morning he didn't want to go but I made him go because his big toe is swollen and infected also he has a fungus in his toenail the Dr. has put him on an antibiotic for 10 days and tablets for the fungus for 3 months. Sun, 17 Aug 2014 21:17:40 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761082 Been very busy today that is why I am so late after my walk we did the grocery shopping come home put it all away did lunch went out and cleaned the car, then I had to do Hubby's feet as with being a diabetic I like to keep them right so he does not get any infection in them. His Sister has to have a Kidney ultrasound on Friday and Barry has to have one on Sunday 24th. Sat, 16 Aug 2014 22:04:00 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5760544 Change in weather today no rain so went for my walk came home done all the washing so will get them all dry which is good because I like hanging the washing outside to dry so will be bringing it in soon. Fri, 15 Aug 2014 22:17:40 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759706 The storm really hit us last it took me a long time to even go to sleep listening to it, we park the car under the trees and with the heavy wind I was scared that the tree would come down on it. Once again there are a lot of people lost power because of trees falling on power lines. Thu, 14 Aug 2014 14:37:55 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759030 What a wet and wild night, I will be doing all my walking inside today as it is far to wet out there. We are going to be on the move around about the middle of October as they are going to revamp the Theatre's here so we are going to move to the old theatre block over at the main hospital. Wed, 13 Aug 2014 14:44:25 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5758335 Back over at the other Hospital today so at the moment don't know what I am in for just another busy day. Been awake most of the night listening to the rain at some times it was very heavy. Tue, 12 Aug 2014 14:36:28 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757634 Yesterday I was running late so could not do my Spark points until after I got home as I had to sort out a few work issues, but back to normal today the weather is a bit warmer but it is pouring with rain and will do over the next few days. Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:41:06 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757273 THE WEATHER WAS A BIT COLD THIS MORNING BUT WAS PLEASED WHEN THE DAY WAS OVER AS WE WERE VERY BUSY AS I WAS AT THE OTHER HOSPITAL TODAY. Mon, 11 Aug 2014 03:51:04 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5756547 Today it is bitterly cold even though the sun has just come out I am still freezing. I hope I am not in for any thing. Sat, 9 Aug 2014 21:02:38 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5755977 Today has turned out to be a bit warmer than we have had lately the sun is nice and warm when you are inside bit outside is another story as I noticed when I went for my walk but should be good for getting the washing dry. Fri, 8 Aug 2014 21:28:05 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5755175 I can't wait for today to finish even though I have not started work yet, went for my walk as it was raining during the night and I wanted to get it done before it started again. It was a very nerve raking day yesterday as I asked my boss if I could come over here at 11:00 am as there was a lot to do before we started work here in the afternoon as the Dr. always arrives at 12:45 pm to start and she said definitely not but my coordinator let me go at 10 past 11 anyway. Thu, 7 Aug 2014 14:36:23 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5754484 I am rushing this morning as we are back here after lunch and have no scopes ready so I am rushing to put some through before I catch the shuttle as the Dr. likes to start early and they won't let me leave there before 11:30 am which does not give me much time. The shuttle back here is 20 min. get changed and also to have lunch. Wed, 6 Aug 2014 14:49:26 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5753742 Went for my walk early this morning I am on days off today I am pleased for that as I need a break from that other hospital it is really hard work as they keep adding on to the lists where as at the other hospital where I normally work we have a set list and they don't add on to the daily list. Tue, 5 Aug 2014 15:54:08 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5753001 I wish I had yesterday off instead of working as it was a really stressful day and I was pleased when it was over, they were still working so had to get someone to take over from me. I hope today is better, even though it was cold I went for a short work as I don't think I will feel like it after work. Mon, 4 Aug 2014 14:34:07 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5752308 Suppose to be my day off today but I have been asked to work and will have Wednesday off instead, don't like the idea but thought it would help with the roster.I asked to have next Monday off but was told I could not have it off so in future I will not be changing days to suit my boss. Sun, 3 Aug 2014 14:35:22 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5751897 Today I will be doing my exercise inside as it is very wet and windy outside, had to go and do the grocery shopping and got wet. Sat, 2 Aug 2014 21:30:22 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5751308 The weather is a bit unpredictable today have hung all my washing out but have to keep an eye on it because it really looks like it will rain any time but the wind will help to dry it all. Fri, 1 Aug 2014 21:03:41 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5750459 I had a terrible day yesterday the machines kept plying up, Dr's were waiting for scopes because of it and it made for one really long day. Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:46:46 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5749737 Running late today as hubby is home sick so did not get started on my SP till late and now I have to rush to catch the shuttle as I am over at the other hospital (which I hate) all day today. Wed, 30 Jul 2014 14:46:49 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5749012 Today it is very wet out there but managed to get my walk in while it was dry, at least it was warmer this morning than it has been so that was a plus. Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:37:34 EST TUESDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748336 Hubby had a bad turn yesterday, he said he was pleased he was not driving as he just went to sleep so am not to sure whether it was his diabetes or some thing else, but being him he won't go to the Dr. He is suppose to go and have an ultrasound for his Kidneys tomorrow but he is going to cancel it and make it another day. Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:51:42 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747577 Woke up this morning to another 1 deg Celsius hence another frost did not want to get out of bed, got to work and had forgot my security card without to I cannot get into the hospital so had to go back home for it also it has a bar code on the back of it and without that I could not operate the machine, then went to check my emails on my work computer and found I had left my glasses at home to, so what a disaster of a morning. Sun, 27 Jul 2014 14:39:06 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747178 Running late today as I have been watching the Olympic games at the moment we are watching bowls and the triathlon switching between channels. N.Z. did quite well in the cycle races they have so far got 3 gold 1 silver and 5 bronze.

I was able to get my walk in so that was good now we are just enjoying the sun. Fri, 25 Jul 2014 21:50:35 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745784 This week is over and I have never hoped for a week to finish, I went to physio yesterday and he tells me my knee is still swollen and when he started pressing on it it was really sore, this morning it is a bit painful but I have taken some pain relief I still have to climb up on the shuttle to go over to the other hospital and I struggle with that. Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:28:35 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745043 I am off to the other hospital in a minute only 1/2 day which is not so bad but tomorrow I am there all day. The temperature at the moment is 5 deg a fraction warmer than yesterday but still really cold. Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:35:44 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744329 Another freezing morning 0 deg. it is very hard to stand this cold weather I love the hot climates, so does hubby he really feels the cold as he is on blood thinners.

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 15:30:41 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742286 The sun is trying to come through the clouds but it is still so cold, will go for my walk later hopefully it will be a bit warmer. Only today and tomorrow then I am back at work. Sat, 19 Jul 2014 19:32:07 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741702 Even though it was really cold I went out for my walk as I had to go out early as hubby was putting bets on for the races today as the first race started at 10:30 am I don't know why they are starting early because the normally start about 12:00. Fri, 18 Jul 2014 19:13:03 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741117 Went and had my hair done this morning it made me feel better, it was bitterly cold this morning 0 deg a frost this morning and it is still cold even though the sun is out it does not have much heat in it. Thu, 17 Jul 2014 23:23:04 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740227 We are now half way through Winter I can't wait for Spring for the weather to start warming up, it is 4 deg. Celsius here this morning. We were going to go away for the weekend as hubby has taken tomorrow and Monday off but because it is so cold he said we may as well stay home. Wed, 16 Jul 2014 16:12:29 EST Another Cold Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5739474 I think I am noticing the cold a bit more because I am at home if I was at work it would not be noticed as the hospital is heated and I notice the heat as soon as I walk in the door in the mornings. Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:30:00 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738778 Today once it hears up a bit it will be quite a nice day, very cold this morning with fog but the sun is out but at the moment there is no heat, will be going out for my walk soon, yesterday I didn't go for my walk till about 11 am Mon, 14 Jul 2014 16:45:33 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738037 Boy is it cold this morning I think I would have been warmer at work, will wait before I go for my walk as it is also dense fog out there and hopefully when that lifts the sun will be out and it will get warmer. Sun, 13 Jul 2014 17:02:24 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5737554 What a big change in the weather was able to go out for my walk nice and early this morning no wind and no rain, I don't think the rain has completely gone as now it is overcast. I feel for the poor people up north as the roads have been flooded as well as a lot of houses and hundreds are still with out power, my Daughter and BIL cannot go up to the farm to check if there is any damage. Sat, 12 Jul 2014 21:39:14 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736970 I am now on 1 weeks A/L and we were thinking of going up north as they call it the winterless north but just as well we didn't pre book into a motel as nearly all the roads north of Whangarei are closed because of flooding even the road we normally travel is closed to so it looks like we will have to stay home. If we went south it is to cold and with these high winds I think it is better to stay home and save money. Fri, 11 Jul 2014 21:42:36 EST Friday yah! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736199 Have not gone to work today as my knee is sore and swollen yesterday went to physio and the could not do much as my knee was swollen then and that was early in the morning 07:30 am and I did not finish work till 4:45 pm. Thu, 10 Jul 2014 17:35:16 EST Another wild night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735410 N.Z. Was once again caught in this shocking weather there are a lot of people out there with no power because have bought down power lines and especially up North they have no power and have a lot of flooding. Wed, 9 Jul 2014 14:27:12 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734658 Boy what a wild night last night with gale force winds and pouring rain kept me awake most of the night which I did not need with going to work to day so will see how it goes. Tue, 8 Jul 2014 14:55:30 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733907 Tomorrow its back to work but I don't mind as I do have next week off as long service leave so might go away for a couple of days. Mon, 7 Jul 2014 15:05:12 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733168 Only 2 more days and I go back to work, I am hoping my knee will be able to take it as I am standing all day so here's hoping, I am a bit tired this morning as we got woken up at 3:00am with the phone ringing but it stopped before we answered but it makes you wonder who it could be. Sun, 6 Jul 2014 15:00:07 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732791 The weather here today is cold and overcast but was able to get my walk in early, I am now resting before I have to start cooking tea. Sat, 5 Jul 2014 22:53:04 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732007 Had to get up early as I was in quite a bit of pain with my knee and take some Panadol to try and ease it, will go for my walk later as I don't want to over do it. Fri, 4 Jul 2014 15:15:32 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731634 Stayed in bed this morning as it was that cold I don't normally do that but once in awhile won't hurt then went for my walk as it started to warm up, once the sun came out this morning the weather was great. Fri, 4 Jul 2014 00:22:31 EST Another Cold Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730663 At the moment because it is so cold I am going for my walk a bit later. Had my stitches out yesterday, my knee is still a bit swollen and my surgeon has given me another week off so should be going back to work next Wednesday. Wed, 2 Jul 2014 14:59:35 EST
