Today is Sunday 28th February

Guess we’ve had it with the glorious sunshine then. The day has dawned with thick fog, and we’re unable to see across the road. Hopefully the sun will come back after its mini break and burn it off so that we can enjoy another pleasant day. It’s still mild though, so shouldn’t complain I suppose, and at least it’s not raining.

I got away with the flapjacks yesterday, but know they will reflect on the scales tomorrow. I’ve scraped by with a maintain, but admit to not exactly standing on one foot, but putting the scales on a friendly spot for the best result.
The good news is that Hubby has put on over two pounds and that is a relief for both of us. He has another INR blood test tomorrow so hopefully that too will be going up. It’s possible the protein puddings and shakes have been affecting his INR, so he didn’t have any yesterday, and won’t have any today either. We can only try.
Tomorrow, I shall also be having a discussion about my diabetes blood test results. I’ve been given no time slot, just ‘anytime up to 8pm’. Good job we only have the mobile else we’d be staying in all day!

So, what is on the agenda for us today?
Not much I’m afraid.  We will be going out for a walk shortly, though it won’t be as far as yesterday, plus we need to get some more ice cream as Hubby polished off the tub last night. He also managed to digest my non chocolate coated flapjacks, so that’s a plus. Gingernut biscuits still rule in our house though, and I have plenty of stores in!

Stew for lunch for the second day, something else that is going down well, so we are sticking with things we know. He’s been out of hospital for two weeks now, and was advised to stay on sloppy food for a month, so we’re halfway through. There is a lot to take into account, from keeping him hydrated to stopping him from feeling hungry, to not overloading his tummy and keeping his intake soft. Porridge for breakfast is the norm, and sometimes his final meal around 4pm. All swings and roundabouts, learning curves and frustrations!!

Have a good day everyone. Take care and keep safe.

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’ve been watching my cholesterol and have been eating oatmeal but just bought oat bran porridge that is very tasty. (The box warns “This is not a diet food” probably due to the high fiber and carbohydrates)..

    • I shall find out the results of my blood tests today . Nothing flagged as urgent and from what we can see, the two things out of range aren’t drastic. I just need them explained to me!!
