Hello and good morning! Happy birthday to my nephew in NZ who is 35 today.
It’s been raining through the night and is continuing in drips and drops of varying size and frequency. For once you can’t blame us as we have neither cut the grass, washed the car or cleaned the windows.
We had a few things to chase on the diary, and the good news is that Hubby’s notes have now been registered at the hospital where he was recently treated, so in the case of an emergency, he is on their records. HURRAH!! This has given us a terrific peace of mind, and an official consultation will follow in due course, though they are giving priority to emergency and cancer patients which is only right.
I’ve chased my bone density scan in relation to my cancer meds, and have my chest Xray on Thursday regarding the annoying little cough that comes and goes.
Our official letter of complaint regarding the prescriptions office is due to be followed up later in the week allowing for their ten days deadline. They’ve given us the addresses to take the next steps if we don’t hear anything. We are not letting it drop.
Today I shall be playing office clerk with spreadsheets.
Our new energy provider intends to bill us monthly, and at the moment we are paying a fixed amount on a fixed tariff. My plan is to take my weekly readings and get a feel for monthly charges so as to be ahead of the game. If they decide to charge us on a monthly basis later I want to know what I’m likely to be up against in the winter months. I hate change, but if I know, I can prepare accordingly.
We go on our new telephone provider today, though as yet have not heard anything from them. The internet is up and running and we’ve made a phone call on the landline this morning, but if I go quiet (stop cheering you lot), it will be because we are not connected.
It’s been four days since we had the last of our stew, so that will be on the menu for the next few days provided we can get decent ingredients. The last stewpacks have been dire offerings and we ended up buying full packs of everything and freezing the surplus. That’s not a problem, so we shall just see what’s available today.
Other than that, a quiet day is planned and we shall get out for our walks between showers.
Hope your day has started well. Take care and keep safe everyone.
You must have send me some sunshine 😊 it’s just come out. I hope all your quests will have a good ending. At least you won’t get bored. Sorry, if that sounds obnoxious 🤗 I spent yesterday to do our monthly shop online. We were low on everything because I only got paid 87£ in January and in February my car needed some repairs for the MOT. So we made do with what we had and got creative 😁. That’s the good thing of buying in bulk. You don’t easily run out of stuff. But more than two months and even we get into trouble. Today I catch up with stuff: cleaning the bathroom, baking cookies (Do you want one?) and reading blogs 🙋♀️🐝
Thanks for the virtual cookie Bee. We buy our UHT milk in bulk for the month, and stock up with things like washing powder etc when we see them on special. So far we’ve been able to keep on top of everything. We did buy some 3 ply toilet rolls when we couldn’t get our usual brand, and they were dreadful, so we threw the lot in the bin…… 17 and a half rolls!!
Ah, my toilet roll mistake was worse. I bought toilet roll from Amazon. It said 12 rolls for a normal price but they had rolled off half of the toilet roll. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw teeny weeny toilet rolls. They didn’t get a good review and they went in the bin too 🤣🙋♀️🐝
don’t blame you.
I do hope all goes well 💜🦋🦋
We’ve had responses to our two enquiries, so that’s half the battle. We shall see on the third as the deadline isn’t up until tomorrow.
Fingers crossed 🤞💜🤞
Medical follow ups of the paperwork kind are so frustrating!! Hope you can find good ingredients for stew. I’m making steamed sugar snap peas and roasted chicken. No doubt we’ll be eating on it for days!
Stew ingredients got and prepared, some frozen ready for next time. We now have the next two days covered too.
