Today is Thursday 10th June

It is 3.30 in the afternoon and I have just accessed my blog.
Hubby had an INR this morning and is still in range. He had a ‘discussion’ with the current nurse who wanted to reduce his dosage unnecessarily as it could have sent it the other way and he’d be back on tummy jabs. He has to go back next week, though will see another nurse as this one is on holiday. Our regular and efficient INR nurse is still off, and it is unclear if she will actually be coming back to our surgery. Bummer that.

He has spent the majority of the morning fixing our neighbour’s gate as the hinges had dropped. All workmen here do a grand job, that is it costs a thousand pounds for whatever you want done. Hubby replaced rusted screws, realigned the hinges then rehung the gate and all is good.

I was going to make some cards today but it is too hot and stuffy here in the lounge where I’d have to work at the table. The fan would blow everything everywhere, so I’m holding fire until a cooler day.

We had corned beef hash today for lunch followed by ice cream. We’ll have the last of the stew for our final meal around 4 pm.
On a finishing note today, I’ve counted 65 buds on the Ancient Mariner and this is what it looked like this morning:
Isn’t it fabulous?

Take care everyone, 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.

    Beautiful rose, and when they all bloom out it will be awesome! πŸ™‚

  4. I laughed when I read everything costs a grand. Here too but you are lucky if it’s only one grand. I can’t believe how costs have skyrocketed.

    I don’t want to talk about the cost of repairs! My pocketbook is still reeling in pain… Anyway the rose is very beautiful and I can only imagine the smell when it is filled with blooms!! Wow!
