So I’ve been having medical problems again. A couple of weeks ago, I started getting dry, gritty eyes; within a couple of days, I could barely see – everything was blurry and bright lights made my eyes hurt. Naturally, I couldn’t do anything on the computer – I managed to snatch 20 minutes or so … Continue reading Springggggg….
So I had planned to go on a little photography expedition today, attempting a walk to the loch to do some landscape pictures. Never make plans… It was probably that early-morning bad dream that precipitated it. In this dream, Cleopatra had been reanimated by means of DNA technology and installed in a glass-sided pyramid for … Continue reading Flat Out…..
At last the year is turning; winter is still hard and frosty, but summer is on its way. We’re promised a thaw in a few days – can’t come soon enough. Lovely as snow looks, it gets boring after three solid weeks. B is finally getting to see a consultant in Glasgow, next week. Hopefully, … Continue reading So This is Newtonmass…..
Well, it seems to be here at last. A couple of days of sun and warmth. Spent most of today in the garden, tidying up the grass mowings, then lounging with a book. I have been trying to get more exercise over th e last couple of weeks, mainly by walking up the hill opposite … Continue reading Summer is acoming….
OK, I don’t post much these days. I spend a lot of time (probably too much time) reading blogs, articles, Twitter and Facebook – I like keeping up with the news. And I haven’t much real work to get on with – heck, no paying work at all right now. Plus my health ain’t that … Continue reading Still Here….
So I went to see Doc G yesterday. I first told him about my tinnitus and growing deafness. My whole life, I’ve always had very short bursts of noises in my ears – howls, rustling, whines, whistles, even far-away whispering, but they never lasted for more than a minute or so; I assumed that everybody … Continue reading Good News, Bad News….
…another tachycardia attack. This one started at approximately 3am this morning and didn’t stop until 2pm today. Something of a record for me. So I’ve not done a lot of anything today, aside from lying in bed and staring up at the ceiling (getting up and walking around during an attack makes me dizzy and … Continue reading Another day….
Did not get to Preston today. Got to the coach and got told extremely brusquely that it was fully booked and I couldn’t get a ticket. I had wondered if I should book a seat beforehand. But I couldn’t put any money on my PAYG card until yesterday, and it takes at least a day … Continue reading Peed Orf…
Ack. My left knee has decided to make trouble again. For the last two days, it’s been stiff, painful and achey. Not only that, but it looks like a King Edward potato that’s come third in a Humourous Vegetables contest. So I’m doing as little walking as possible. Hopefully, it should have sorted itself by … Continue reading And the Winner of the Knobbly Knees Contest is…
Had one crappy day yesterday. First, I missed almost a whole night’s sleep – a tachycardia attack hit as i was going off to sleep and lasted for at least five hours. I spent most of the night sitting downstairs watching crap TV, got back to bed at six, managed less than a couple of … Continue reading Busy, Busy…
