Today is Thursday 11th February

Good morning!
The sun is shining …… and I have dirty windows. Nothing like emphasising the point when the sun shines on the glass and it’s permanently foggy. One thing living by the sea, we get a lot of salt in the air and the residue sticks to the glass. Might get out there in a minute.
Hubby is up at A&E in the hope of getting something sorted with this reflux issue. I would have gone too, but it would mean sitting in the car for hours as I could not wait inside or sit in one of their cafes.
The meds prescribed by the HHA have gone back to the pharmacy unopened as they will do more harm than good, and trying to get a face to face appointment with someone who actually knows what they’re doing (he needs to be examined) is like asking for tickets to the moon.

Meanwhile here at home, I’ve had a shower and washed my hair, cleaned the bathroom, done a mini wash, and had a quick sweep through. Breakfast was cereal and a second banana as the first was rotten in the middle, and lunch is……………. a surprise as I have no idea what to have. I have bacon and mushrooms in the fridge so could throw that together.

Following up on the saga of Covid jabs here and the ridiculousness of expecting residents to travel thirty plus miles. Our MP has put her website details on FB with a direct contact number for those wishing to arrange local appointments. Our neighbour did that yesterday when Hubby took the details round to her and has an appointment at 4.30 today. She has now put a message on FB letting everyone know. The surgery told me yesterday (2 different people) that they will not take /are unable to cope with calls about Covid vaccinations, Now to me, if I was in admin, I would designate ONE LINE purely for that as the GPs have direct lines so they could utilise one office. Ho hum, makes sense to me………

Onward with the day then, and those windows are annoying, so I;m going to don a coat and gloves and do something about it………. and I had a shower this morning because ????

Tale care and keep safe everyone

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.

    It is a sad saga about vaccinations where you are Di.

    I hope your hubby gets sorted out too. This reflux problem sounds horrid.

    Have a good day. We gave bright sunshine here too

      • Crazy you’ve had to wait all this time to have ot fixd, I would have thought you were a priority. Hope you are now basking in warmth! Take care

        Thaks Dit shoud rginally havebeen done by our regular gas fitter on 6th.Jan, but then thee neew lockdown began right then. We didn’t know what to do a d we oyrselves were very scared as cases were rising fast round here. So we opted to wait a whilevrather than ttakeisk. We were really scared. But cases have dropped dra atically now so we are happier.

  2. I realize I ought to know, but (if it’s not too much personal information sharing) what exactly did ‘they’ fix on your hubby with his recent surgery? The continual reflux problem reminds me of my father, who suffered with it his entire adult life, despite various attempts at a cure. They fixed something called a ‘hiatal hernia’ during one attempt (that is a condition where there’s a hernia in the tube from the esophagus to the stomach, and that hernia prevents proper digestion, so the sufferer often ends up with wicked gas, belching and extreme pain. As well as regurgitation of certain foods, or actual vomiting because something just won’t go down. Pop was told to stick to a bland diet, which I’m not sure he ever did. He was in pain anyway, so I think his attitude was ‘what the heck. May as well eat what I want”. My best wishes to your husband on them finding out why this keeps happening to him! Good on you too for washing your windows. You wanna come do mine? 😉

    • Yep, this is what Hubby had and it’s failed. Finally we’ve found someone prepared to help him, but we have to get his notes transferred first. Hell. It just gets worse, but at least he’s in the right place at the moment.

  3. I am not surprised your Hubby has reflux problems, I am sorry I let them but in the stomach pump. My stomach has not been the same then. Wish him good luck with the reflux problems.

    Be safe washing those windows! It wouldn’t be good if you fell or got frostbite while trying to get them clean! As for the COVID vaccination scheduling – I think they should hire you to organize it!!

    • I couldn’t do much worse! Saying that though, Hubby has had a notification for his and it has been confirmed they’re doing the over 65 groups now. We can;t access the link given as we don’t have a smart phone, so have to wait for a call. When it arrives, we’ll try and book me in too.
