Today is Thursday 21st October

It had been raining most of the night, but we were up early, had breakfast and out on the road by 8.30. With it being Market Day today we anticipated heavier traffic, but the town was eerily quiet. We even missed the school run!
We arrived in plenty of time for Hubby’s appointment and when he went trotting off, I got out the suduku book. The weather was at least dry now, but the wind was bitterly cold.

All done and dusted, they have ruled out gallstones, so it’s a start.
We had a few hours to kill though but had other things to do, including collecting the interior socket which has a RCD trip on it and a few other bits to help keep the box waterproof and also ventilated.
After that, we went into the town for ‘lunch’ and were able to park in the High Street.
It’s quite nice having a picnic in the car as you don’t have to worry about social distancing as you eat!

Hubby’s yogurts have been in short supply locally, but we have found another source for them so I got enough to last him a fortnight. I also got the lasagna in for tomorrow’s lunch as he cannot eat anything after 1pm. Strawberries were 30% off so I got a pack for 70p and was well pleased with that.

After shopping, we had plenty of time to get to his INR appointment, except we missed our turn so went about 8 miles out of our way. Ho hum. We wanted to use up the bad diesel anyway and will fuel up after our major trips over the weekend.
His INR is down to 1.3 (normal range between 3 and 4 but they wanted it less than 2) so that is good in a way, but puts him at a higher risk of a DVT. The tummy jabs will give him some protection, and after Saturday he can start taking his warfarin again. He’s booked another INR for Tuesday so until then, he will be having both.

The box is coming along though. If it seriously was for me, I would be very snug and dry!

Hope your day has been kind. Keep safe and take care 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.

    Those tummy jabs are the worst

    Glad there aren’t any gall stones but the mystery remains 😦 It turned chilly here with highs in the low 50s and very windy… I’m sure it was because Sparky was rearranging the storages area and pulled out the space heaters!
