Dear Diary: Saturday 6th October

I can’t settle today, just can’t put my mind to anything.
I woke up with slight pain in my chest, but that was probably because I’d slipped down in the bed as I slept and the angle was wrong. Hubby is sleeping with four or five pillows in an almost upright position to ease his reflux, and I’m sleeping with four.
The pain’s eased though, so no worries there.

Bro rang me this morning, so it was lovely to talk to him. I’d sent an email the day before posting anything about my hospital trip on my blog so that he was aware. He suffers from reflux too, so we could compare notes! He’s been on meds for it for years, and takes his at night the same as Hubby does, and me as well now so that at least we stand a chance of a good night’s sleep. He’s OK though, as is everyone there. Loads of love there too ❤ ❤ ❤

It’s been raining all day and the temperature has dropped, so we’ve flicked the heating on. When we open the door, we hear the sea raging and know that colder times are coming.
Housework done, breakfast had, we went out to post Bro’s parcel and to get a PIR light for the back garden. Maggie is reluctant to go into the garden at night to do her business, I guess because her eyes take a long time to adjust. We’ve tried putting on both bedroom lights which do help, but decided a PIR will be better for her. Hubby will fit that tomorrow if the rain stops and the wind drops.

I’ve been good with the food today, opting for melon for breakfast with only 2 chopped apricots and a banana, so just 2 syns. Lunch was sweet ginger and pineapple chicken, so 2 syns for the sugar, and everything else was free. I had a fruit yoghurt for afters at 4½ syns.
Two poached eggs on toast for my tea, using the bread as my B option and 1½ syns of low fat spread. I’ve also treated myself to 3 sweets, so my total syns for the day are 13.

I’m tired, and guess Thursday’s events are catching up with me.
The pain I had in my chest when I had my two heart scares was nothing compared to what I experienced this time and it scared me. I shed a few tears in the ambulance I can tell you. I don’t like to make a fuss, don’t like to be ill and become anxious about the unknown.
Still, everything was clear so I can hopefully get back into the swing of things.

On a different note, Hubby has treated himself to some lighter darts (19 grams), which has proven to be a good move. He’s getting his finishing double a lot more often than I am, though after losing three games straight yesterday, I did win 2 of the 5 we played today.
Tomorrow I shall be going through the Darts fixtures paperwork and making notes.
The team is down from 7 to 6 as one of our ladies is not well and will be out of commission for quite a while. We need 6 players, so I hope we don’t have a repetition of last year when we were always short and lost points for not having players as well as lost games.
We can but see.

Tomorrow I’m may get the card kit out as that always relaxes me. Might even get some crimbly ones done, though our posting list has diminished considerably. I’ve also got a special anniversary card to make as our neighbours celebrate their thirtieth next week.
These are some from February.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I can certainly understand being scared and shedding a few tears. Chest pain is scary!
    I hope the cards can relax you!
