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. Sat, 26 Jul 2014 21:41:21 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746633 For once we have a nice day was cold this morning but the sun is out but there is not muck heat in it though. 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. Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:15:03 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743528 Well I am at work have not started yet but will do soon as I have to get these scopes through ready for when the surgeon gets here. Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:10:45 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742799 Not looking forward to tomorrow I have really enjoyed my few weeks off but never mind it has to be but I only have a half day anyway so that I can handle. 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 Wintery Blast http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729947 We are going to get a very very cold blast coming up from the Antarctic so I will be getting all rugged up when I go for my appointment this morning.

Tue, 1 Jul 2014 15:23:56 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729308 This morning I went with hubby to see a diettion and she explained a lot to him that he did not know before but she also told him that he is close to having to take insulin. Mon, 30 Jun 2014 19:37:32 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728518 Boy what a cold morning it has rained non stop since I got out of bed this morning have had to do most of my exercises inside now it is really cold so am sitting under my electric cuddle blanket trying to warm up. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 18:21:36 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728517 Boy what a cold morning it has rained non stop since I got out of bed this morning have had to do most of my exercises inside now it is really cold so am sitting under my electric cuddle blanket trying to warm up. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 18:21:32 EST Home Now http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727989 Had a great time on the farm DIL had the 2 younger dogs shaved and we hardly recognised them as they have always been a long haired type of dog so know wonder they looked different. The 2 older dogs which are chocolate Labradors both seem to have arthritis in there hind legs which is such a shame as they are really cute and they love racing around when they go down to feed the calves and the pigs. Sat, 28 Jun 2014 21:58:43 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727327 We are down on the farm as I said it is not far from home but it is just a nice break the weather is not the best as last night it poured with rain and blew a gale. At the moment the sun is shinning but it is still blowing a gale. Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:01:05 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726466 After hubby gets home from work we are going down to the farm to spend the weekend with our son and DIL it is my son's birthday today so it will be nice to spend the rest of the day with him. Thu, 26 Jun 2014 15:06:35 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725812 Having my stitches out next week on Wednesday and hubby is going to see a dietition on Tuesday morning he said he was feeling a bit better but I am not sure how he feels with having this patch on that is suppose to help his blood pressure. Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:55:32 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725046 Hubby went to work today he was feeling a bit better I think it was a shock for him to find out that the results of his blood test was not good, he knows now that he will have to alter some of his things. Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:54:21 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5724361 My leg is still sore, hubby had a really bad night last night he went to the Dr and his blood pressure was 190/ 80 and blood sugar levels were 77 which was not good news, I put a patch which is suppose to help his blood pressure and straight away he blamed that even though he has had the same problem at night before I told him to give the patch a chance. Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:58:14 EST Very Cold MORNING http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723539 Will go for my walk a bit later as the cold morning is making my leg ache this morning other than that the swelling has not yet gone down but will keep doing my exercises as it is good for my knee. Sun, 22 Jun 2014 17:56:13 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723065 I am trying to walk a bit further each day as when I go back to work I will be on my feet more so I have to strengthen it up. Sat, 21 Jun 2014 22:17:53 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722380 My walk was a little longer today which was good as my knee seems to be getting stronger still a bit sore and swollen not sure when they will take the stiches out they said 10 days. Fri, 20 Jun 2014 21:06:45 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721531 Not a nice day today only went for a short walk again, leg is still quite swollen but I am getting around alright with crutches, hubby said he might take me for a drive this morning out to the farm.
