Hi everyone,
I am finally back as the hard drive in my computer had to be replaced, just thought i would tell you what has been happening since Christmas, I think it will make intresting reading for you all,
Came back from the South after Christmas and we both had streaming colds and dreadful coughs, then my computer decided to crash, then last week OH coukld not walk, he had achiles heel, so painful, he had to use my stick to get to the toilet, I had to venture to Morrisons by myself, damn trolley would not go the way I wanted it to and kept crashing, on Monday of this week OH decided to use the new veg slicer " Mandolin " he was given for Christmas, before I could shout you have not got the safety device on it it was to late, he had taken part of his thumb off, we still have not found that part of the thumb. to the Doctor and straight to A&E, they were pretty good an put us with the emergency Dr, unfortunately they could not stitch his thumb as the cut was to bad, came home with him at 8 that evening bandaged up and in a sling, tuesday I was going to the village, OH said he would come with me to get out, I went into Lidl he went up to the co-op, I came out of Lidl and looked at the back of the car, we drive a Saab so not cheap to repair, someone had hit the rear of the car, what a nightmare, then today I took him to the Dr, to have the dressings changed, nurse set it off bleeding again, we think its stopped now, god I hope so, came home and computer man phoned and said he had lost all my emails, and he was going to have to find them, anyway that is sorted, lunch time OH asked could he have some soup for his lunch, no problem says I, poured the soup into a pan and went for a bowl, he said what’s this, I said what,!! looked into the soup and there was something funny in it, I put my fingers in and pulled out a piece of blue plastic about 3″ × 2″ big enough to have choked him if he had got as far as eating the soup, that and the can are on their way back to Heinz with a strong letter, so you all thought that was the end of our saga, well its not, last week OH ordered a new oven, delivery for Friday, said they would phone Thursday evening to say what time they would deliver, no phone call, OH phoned them Friday and they said Oh yes its last delivery you will get it at 6 this evening, 9 o clock still no oven, OH phoned them, open till 10 and cancelled it, got aphone call ten minutes later to say they were still delivering, then later my mobile went and the chap said I am delivering your oven, no your not I said its cancelled, Saturday morning a director phones up full of apologies etc etc and asked would we reinstate it, I said No, but decided OH would have to go back on the internet and re order from another firm, so I said o.k. they said they would deliver between 10 and two on Monday, they were on the ball this time, it finally arrived Monday at half ten, well I think if you have had the patience to read this I think that is about it, taking the car tomorrow for OH nephew to repair it, by the way, I have missed you all,

13 Jan, 2012

 

I'm getting very tired now Pp, starts with getting him showered until I get him to bed at night, he is very good though so that makes it easier to cope with, have to do everything right down to putting seat belt on coat on, zip up, shoes, and it goes on, xx

13 Jan, 2012

 

Just read you PM.....
Oh my, your new year did not start off good for you. Let's hope the rest of the year is much much better.
I hope Ralph recovers fast and he doesn't lose function of his thumb.
Don't forget to take care of yourself too.....

23 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks!!!

Oh! Yorkshire what can I say. What a crappy start to the new year. I do hope Ralph's thumb is improving now the pain is controlled well. You must be shattered and ready for a break.
I can't understand why I don't get some notices about my favourites until a week or even more after they have posted a photo or blogg. This only showed up today.

2 Feb, 2012

 

I have noticed some come back on after a couple of weeks, thumb healed up nicely, but a very sickly daughter at the moment with pluerosy, 2nd time within about 9 weeks, she has been very ill, we have been on stand by just in case we had to dash down south to her,

2 Feb, 2012

 

you aren't having a good start to this year,Yorkshire..glad Ralph is on the mend,but very sorry to hear about your daughter..Just hope she starts improving soon..x

2 Feb, 2012

2 Feb, 2012

 

Oh! Val that's a big worry for you. I do hope she has good care where she is and soon improves and gets well.I am glad Ralph's thumb is now healed. Take care of yourself....xx

2 Feb, 2012
