Another draw!

The girls played well tonight, and the score was 6 games each. They were one short though, so we got a singles game by default.
We had some great games, and the best bit of the night was one of the other side getting out on the bullseye. We had a few arrows going haywire, but it was a good night and the last time we played them, we lost 8 games to 4.
We are currently second from bottom in the league and have 2 more matches to play, one with the current league leaders and the other with the team below us who we drew with last time.
As always, when I get home I need to unwind, and I’ve already scheduled tomorrow’s 3TC so I can relax and check out my reader and any comments I haven’t responded to.

Maggie has had a shower and is curled up beside me fast asleep.  Hubby took her out earlier and she has performed the business. She has also eaten her scrambled egg and a little bit of sausage.
Hubby was in bed when I got in, so I hope he isn’t going down with my cold afterall, but he says he has a sore throat and that’s how mine started.
The appointment with the Doc went OK though and there is no problem with his blood test results. What is good is that the GP he saw treats him as an individual rather than a number to be compared to a tick list. His age is taken into account plus his other medications and health issues, and the doc is not worried about anything, which is great to know, unlike the HHA (Head Honcho Ass) who is obsessed with statins and expects everyone to abide by his rulings, even when it has been proven patients have allergies to what he prescribes!

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.

    Ahhh, statins!! My mother had the same problem with a doctor. She had very serious reactions to every statin on the market and this one doctor gave her real grief because she refused to take them. In fact her reactions could have been life threatening. Luckily she was no shrinking violet and she stuck to her guns.

    • Good for her. Husband has had bad reactions to the three they tried him on and it is official by a consultant that he is allergic. I won;t take them either because of side effects and I have enough to worry about. Besides, I have managed to get my weight and diabetes under control with diet, plus my cholesterol levels have also improved.

        Good for you!! We’re lucky when we need medication and there is medication for us. But when we can’t tolerate them and the side effects are dangerous for us, then we shouldn’t be taking them. Period, end of story. That’s why it’s so important to read up and become knowledgeable about our conditions and the medications that treat them. It’s easy with the Internet.

      • Hubby always does that as a matter of course with any new meds. It’s quite interesting what he finds out. At the moment, the pills he’s on for reducing cholesterol (non-statins) work on the food you eat, and as we have reduced the fats and sugars, they are not working so well. Eating green leafy veg and foods high in iron will help but he can’t have those too often as it affects his warfarin INR! He’s in a catch 22, but at least the GO he;s seeing t the moment realises that. Swings and roundabouts!!

      • fransiweinstein says:

        I look everything up as well and before there was an Internet, my mother had some very good books she always consulted. Would foods high in fibre like oats, for example, help him?

      • He has porridge, but too many hi fibre foods trigger his IBS. It’s very much a balancing act but we are getting there.

      • fransiweinstein says:

        It is a balancing act and sounds like it’s also a bit of trial and error.

      • Very much so as what works once doesn’t always work a second!

      • fransiweinstein says:

        I find the opposite sometimes too. Something won’t agree with me and then time passes and I find I can suddenly tolerate it. Our bodies are very complex.

      • Hubby found that with fish. For years he couldn’t touch it as it triggered migraine. Now he can tolerate tuna and pure cod.

      • fransiweinstein says:

        Happened to me with lentils. For years they used to really upset my tummy and now I’m fine with them and eat them all the time. As a child tomatoes gave me giant hives and once I got out of my teens I could eat them every day with no problem.

      • fransiweinstein says:

        Me too, in every way, shape and form.

    Sounds like a good night, I am glad Maggie has eaten, done her business, had a shower and is now curled up with you. I hope hubby doesn’t have a cold and feels better in the morning 💜
