Oh yes, there once was a time when I could do lots of things without making a noise 🙄
They really were good times 😊
After groaning outloud and following up with a quick ‘ouch’ trying to put my shoes on at the GP’s yesterday I ended up having another CT scan on my lower back. It’s a few years since the initial diagnosis so we’ll see what changes have happened in that time. Spinal Stenosis can be a pain- in your back, hips, legs, even your bumalumsky lol
October has arrived- dry and sunny and quite warm at the moment…..although I do believe the weather gods have plans to change that. I changed some of the bedding, removing the ‘spare’ queen size quilt that is used for really cold nights; since we came back it’s been sitting on the chair looking very forlorn so today I thought a bit of sunshine to air it off would be good and then pack it away for ‘hopefully’ a very long time!
There once was a time when I’d bound down the back steps to hang it over the big line in the back garden but today I got The Golfer to drape it over the little whirligig on the deck. It was an easy option to get him to do it before he tootled off to the city – I’ll be able to bring it in later without getting tangled up in the line – sure as fate if it was on the big one I’d end up with it over my head as I tried to dislodge it, then fall flat on my face trying to get up the steps!
October means birthdays – mine and The Golfers. It also means a frantic look through the gift cards in the cupboard to see if any expire this month!
There was a time when businesses would acknowledge customers on their birthday- you’d get cards in the post, discounts on lots of services, I remember (many many years ago) one of my hairdressers gave a free shampoo and set. Mine just texts a Happy Birthday greeting now. One place The Golfer does get a gift from is the club…..at one time it was a free meal and drink for himself (plus a tiddly little birthday cake) and similar value meal for a guest.Not these days now – just a monetry voucher.
I received a little ‘card’ from the optician the other day. Oh that’s great, I thought until I turned it over. Always a catch isn’t there. Spend $400 to get $100 off – yes 25% – there was a time when I would have jumped at the offer but no good to me now, my days of dressing to impress are long gone lol
Oh dear, look at the time – it’s nearly 2 o’clock – I spent some time fiddling about on here this morning changing my theme again. Hopefully I’ll settle on this one even if I can’t get the photos to enlarge if they’re ‘clicked on’
Bye for now.
