When The Golfer does the washing up he just digs in and gets it done in what seems to be record time. I like to sort things beforehand and do things in order ……small things go to the back of the drainer, larger plates come next with big things placed on top. After rinsing the pots and pans go upside down on the stove before I dry and put away.
And as usual while washing up my mind wanders here, there and everywhere.
Take earlier this morning:-
- I know some of us take prescribed medication but how many take over the counter bits and pieces like vitamins on a regular basis?
As well as the Vitamin D I need to bring my levels up to ‘normal’ the doctor suggested that Magnesium may help with muscle cramps – the bane of my life. Whether true or not I do know when I take it regularly I don’t wake during the night screaming the house down because my calf (usually my left one) is ‘on fire’ Lots of ooh, this is hurting as I stand beside the bed trying stretch it out and then lie there wondering ‘what did I do in my sleep to cause that’
- We still have our Telstra landline – it’s needed to connect to our ISP – and I don’t see us getting rid of it in the near future. I wonder how many of you have committed to giving yours up and now only use or rely on your mobile/cell phone?
I think the main reason we hold on to ours is that if the electricity goes off it still works unlike all the extra ‘cord free’ extensions we have in the house that rely on power. Yes we do both have mobiles (prepaid) but need to remember to keep them fully charged. As well as that, a while ago we negotiated a new local plan covering unlimited local plus a refundable discount on other calls and services. Fairly low set price (think line rental cost) unless we go over that limit and I’m all for knowing what my bills will be.
- As I stood there my thoughts turned to why does my nose drip so much? Do any of you suffer in the same way and do you have any tips to alleviate the problem?
Don’t laugh but I’m constantly sniffing….and at times snorting…(very un ladylike behaviour) I don’t seem to be able to go far without having to wipe that awful dewdrop from the end of my delicate nose. There doesn’t seem to be a physical reason and the season of the year makes no difference so the doctor and pharmacist both recommend various sprays – which have no lasting effect except to make my nose very very dry. Years ago during yoga classes with a ‘wise old gentleman’ he would make general ‘health’ suggestions, one of which was to cleanse the nasal passages by sniffing small amounts of warm water up each nostril. I’ve found this does help…..when I remember to do it 😊
- And of course the age old question surfaced……..Do I reply to blog comments. Just wondering because this is starting to bother me – How do you feel?
Some bloggers answer each and every one – I’ve tried but often get bogged down with time or finding the ‘right’ thing to say. Thank you is good but seems a bit weak. Some bloggers reply on the post, some by email, others not at all except to answer a question. Is it necessary – because how many return to see if there was a follow up comment by the blog author?
