Today was Thursday 18th August

The day is almost over, it is now 6.40pm and I have just accessed my blog.
There are 36 comments waiting for me, so I shall get to those next. My apologies for the delay.

All is well. I walked Maya on an extended route this morning after almost aborting because she was not co-operating, then suddenly she settled down, so I did an extra lap and two additional roads.

Hubby has almost finished laying the carpet tiles in the hall. It looks really nice, and being industrial quality, it should wear well. We shall then think about doing the same in the lounge.

I am having a guy come to give us a quote for a new front door next week. I am hoping it will not cost an arm and a leg, but our existing door is tatty and the frame rotting. There is also one helluva draught through it, the bottom trim has broken off at one end, and it leaks in the corner.

Hubby’s INR has gone down to 2.9 from 4.6 so still out of range and not settling down, though we’re getting close! He has another appointment on Monday.

I have the Xrays on my feet tomorrow, so I will be glad to find out what is going on there and what the doc can prescribe in the way of painkillers for those and my hands. I am convinced it is all arthritis and the current painkillers I have are NSaids which affect my kidneys if taken for any length of time.

Enjoy your evenings. 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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    My goodness! You certainly have a lot going on! Good luck with your feet; I have bad arthritis for which I see a pain management doctor ever other week and have massage every week. At the moment I’m doing very well.
    You may be interested in a treatment called PRP (Platelet Rich Replacement); I had it done in my wrists and it was a miracle. I was pain free for almost 2 years! It can treat various body parts but I’ve only had it in my wrists; it might be good for your feet – certainly worth a shot (no pun intended)!
    I read the other day that you’re in the Lincolnshire area. I had a friend you has lived there for many years but we have unfortunately lost touch with one another. One of those things in life.
    Wishing you and your hubby a good night from across the pond. 🌟

    • Thanks Nancy. My mother had pain in her heels and had injections which almost crippled her. Good to know you’re doing OK.
      I have good days and bad days but try to keep active.
