Minols- hope the back gets better soon, have you seen a chiropractor or osteopath before, I can’t remember? Might help if it doesn’t improve soon, & definitely take a sickie for a bit, you don’t need to be sitting at a desk…Bribe the boy to find your hottie for you?!
Jean- hope Steve gets his medication & cough sorted…keep strong! Xena’s tail was kept under control yesterday, so no bleeding, but eldest is coming back soon, she’ll go loopy when she sees him so hope it doesn’t hurt it again. Tried a bandage yesterday but as it’s right on the tip couldn’t get it covered well wnough & kept on!
Dave- did you say you were fasting today? Hope it goes okay…
Out early with Xena, then on to a car boot, got some hyacinths for mum, but it might be too late to do them indoors- dad always did them for her birthday in November. Fasting going okay, pretended the donut van at the car boot wasn’t there!
Jean have some time off until Steve gets home.Minols put some rice in a sock and heat it up in your microwave, then put it on your back. Lovely day here warm again but a nice breeze.
Evening everyone, another nice day here but definitely cooler now and aren’t the nights pulling in quickly.
Went to the garden centre yesterday to collect a new bottle of gas for the BBQ and have a look around but didn’t buy anything else. Been to visit daughter and son in law not forgetting Poppy as usual today.
Have been mindful of my eating the last couple of days and planning on a fast day tomorrow.
Well done to those of you who have completed a fast day today.
Minols hope your back is easier now.
Jean hope Steves sorted out soon and back home with you and Charlie.
Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone and stay safe.
Weird weather here today- cloudy & some rain this morning, hot & sunny this afternoon, then chilly, misty & windy tonight! You’re right, Nana, getting dark early ๐
Managed to keep Xena from knocking her tail, that’s 2 days now, hopefully it’ll heal, fingers crossed!
FD done, 817 cals with a cuppa tonight taking me just over. Hope I can do another one tomorrow…

Feeling really hungry today, hope that goes ๐ Feeling pretty frustrated too- scales show the same as this time last week, 4 days of 800cals to just maintain?! Was hoping to lose 3lbs before we go away for hubby’s birthday in October, shouldn’t be that hard, but at this rate it won’t happen!! Sorry for the whinge, hope everyone has a good day!
I am also very hungry, not a good sign this early. The weather is lovely again today. Bad news about the covid outbreak in Yorkshire.Hope it dosen’t stop our holiday.Dosent seem to be an end to covid ๐ฉ.My son is making his dinner now so that dosen’t help my hunger.Minols hope your back is improving.
Keep strong, Dave! I’m doing my best too!
Jean & Kay as well!
I am trying HH.Finding it difficult today but so far just 1 cuppa.
I’m hungry and have just eaten an apple
2 cuppas and a ginger stem biscuit.So under 100 calories so far but a real struggle.
Might be missing a bit..bad news on Steve, the cancer has returned, he has been told three to six months as thereโs no treatment, itโs quite aggressive…..could be more or less…
Just got to process it, hoping to bring him home tonight if his oxygen stays above 90…
House has come off the market..
Jean- so very sorry for you & Steve, terrible news, hoped it’d gone, he did so well with chemo & radiotherapy. Sending you love & hugs xx

Good morning everyone, couldn’t sleep, got on the scales and have lost 5lbs.Very rare I am on here first.
Walked Charlie…I didnโt sleep very well maybe 5 hours…Charlie knows I am upset, he is too..
Steve didnโt come home yesterday, I shall collect him later if they donโt release he will discharge his self, he wants to be home.
I have stayed the same this week.
Well done on 5 lbs off
Posted something earlier, it’s disappeared!
Jean- hope Steve gets home without too much hassle, you need to be together…could they sort out oxygen for him at home?
Dave- well done! Seeing MIL today? Are you stiff from bowling, or is it getting easier?
NonFD for me, been picking rather than proper meals! BBQ for us tonight. Xena had a run in with another dog on our walk this morning- the other dog started it & nipped her, she turned on him & sorted him out! Luckily didn’t need my spray…
Spoken to my HS family this morning- they’re having an unbelievably crap time, mum was in tears, was close to it myself tbh, nothing I could say to help, just listened ๐ Feel the same with you Jean, thinking of you xx
They can organise oxygen but if you over do it, it can poison you maybe for the future..I feel much better this afternoon not so many tears…I have had a nap.
Still waiting to go for him..hospitals are so slow.
Glad Xeniaโs got out of her do, I donโt like the squabbles they have sometimes.
Sorry on your HS family, you feel like your the only one…
Back from mil. It’s another warm day here, soon be winter.I don’t know if the country will go into full lockdown, but if it does I hope it’s after my holidays.I think it’s the only way to stop the virus.Too many ignore the safety factors when alcohol is involved.
Evening everyone, am getting bad at posting on here but to be honest there’s not a lot of difference in my life at the moment as I’m sure it’s the same for everyone else. Scales showed no loss yet again this morning but at least there was no gain. Trouble is now fingers crossed we get to go away on the 26th for a holiday to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary and I’m already starting to feel in the holiday mode.
Jean thinking of both of you
Hedgehogs well done to Xena. Sad about the home start family.
Hope everyone else is keeping okay and stay safe.
What you going Nana? We go away on the 28th to Yorkshire.Just 4 nights in Skipsea.
We’re off to the Norfolk coast to stay at the same place that we spent our honeymoon
19 Sep 20
Jean- thinking of you & Steve…hope he’s not coughing all night.
Nana- lovely to be going away, we’re lucky that the virus rates are low here, hopefully it’ll be okay. & a golden wedding anniversary should definitely be celebrated!
Dave- how was MIL? Did she feed you lots of biscuits again?
Had a lovely walk with Xena- out for a couple of hours, & quite a few people wanting to stop & chat!
Hopefully a low day for me today…
A lovely day…
A small walk, Charlie was walking lopsided, shaking his head, just 30 mins, he wonโt be going far today..unless he picks up.
A vets visit with sore ears flapping for three hours overnight, he was beside him self..steroid injection and ear cream all in one go..ยฃ51..we have to go back next week.
A bit of shopping and some naughties for Steve….and I suppose me ๐ฌ
Soon be holidays ๐ค…..quite a bit of virus around us….Scarborough is bad…
Hoping your golden wedding anniversary goes ahead…things are changing so quickly…
Coughing seems much better..long slow breathes if it starts…I am keeping away from people at the moment, I donโt feel like talking..people are always asking after Steve..
Have a good weekend..
20 Sep 20
Jean- hugs to you, hope you got some sleep. Just go with the flow with what Steve eats, it’s not important right now. Hope Charlie’s ears are better soon. Must be hard bumping into people & them wanting to talk…
Dave- hope your bowling goes well today! A roast tonight? Are you cooking today?
Nana- it’s nice to hear from you, days the same quite often here too!
Minols- hope your okay & Church service goes well!
Hope everyone else is okay…
A long walk with Xena, naughty girl found some manky things to eat! Listening to our online Church later, hubby on the drag!
Son quiet, court case for his speeding has come up sooner than he thought. Presumed we’d take him, but he wants to deal with it on his own so will go by train…it will do him good to have to go to court & face up to it properly. Will be a relief when he can’t drive, especially as his new car is so powerful!
Hoping for an 800cal day- yesterday wasn’t the low day I’d planned though ๐
Not cooking today, only the Yorkshire pudding.Bowling was good and playing again on Tuesday, were play the team who beat us last week. A lovely day yet again here, holidays a week tomorrow, just 4 nights. Jean stamp my passport. We will stay away from Scarborough. Going to Whitby and Bridlington though. Haddock and chips ๐๐๐๐๐.
A chilly start for this mornings walk….winter coat out in another month…๐ฌ
Busy morning collected a Dyson Amimal, my cordless gave up….cooked a batch of steak pieces for the freezer it makes it easy for meals…
A worry for your son do you think he will loose his license, would he have to take his test again, itโs a worry.
Looking at buying a mobility scooter for Steve to go in the car, so we can go places as he feels up to it.
We are both sleeping reasonably good considering…
A holiday soon, passport stamped ….hoping the weathers better than last time….
Everything ok…you are missing a bit…
Cold chicken with chips tonight, I am cooking the chips, Steves job usually I do them in the garage then they donโt stink the house out…..๐
A bit of sunshine this afternoon. Will take Tara out in a bit but she is having a snooze at the minute.
Doing some research into laptops as we want to buy one and get rid of our desktop pc.
Also trying to find a small wooden cabinet for on the landing, but its not easy!
Still hoping to go visiting family next Sunday, although expecting an announcement tomorrow about further restrictions. Its so annoying that this could have been prevented! Too many people with the ‘we are fine and its ok’ attitude. ๐ก
Eaten and drunk too much this weekend!! FD tomorrow. Not lost any weight this month as yet. A week to go!!
Jean how do you cook in the garage??
I use an air fryer for chips, looking forward to using the new Ninja cooker when it comes. Looks good for breakfast, you just put everything in the air frier and it takes 5 minutes, obviously the eggs are doing seperatly.The bacon goes crispy sausage well done ๐ค
Evening everyone , been a lovely day here and made the most of it. Started off with our usual daily constitutional walk and then did a bit of tidying up in the garden. Have got a busy week ahead planned which includes a visit from my sister and brother in law. Flu Jabs booked for tomorrow afternoon. Am starting to feel in the holiday mode so ๐ค we’ll be able to go away.
Jean glad both of you are managing to get some sleep and also that Steve feels up to going out. Hope you manage to get a mobility scooter sorted for him.
Kay hope you manage to get away also.
Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone and stay safe.
Jean- glad that you & Steve have had some sleep, & hope you can get a scooter to go in the car…Yes, son will definitely lose his license, that’s why he has to attend court, he had hoped to plead guilty in absence, he’ll have to take his test again.
Nana- exciting getting ready for your holiday! Hope you don’t usually get any side effects of the jab? Enjoy all the visits!
Kay- hope you do get away too…good luck with the laptop- our ‘technical advisor’ (eldest!) recemmended ours, saved us trying to do the research!
Dave- well done with the bowling, & hope the roast is good! The amount of fried breakfasts I do I think I coukd do with one!
Had a lovely walk on the beach with Xena, although as she goes loopy & charges all over the place when she’s 1st let off we have to keep her on the lead a bit longer, it’s been so busy this summer. She found yet another ball, getting very good sniffing them out everywhere we go!
Got rather hangry cooking dinner tonight- disgraced myself & said a very rude word which of course son heard, I don’t let them say it at home ๐ฑ I won’t hear the end of it now! Feel better now we’ve eaten. Hoping to go back to ADF liquid FDs for change next week, although after today’s hangriness I don’t know if I’ll manage ๐
Have a good evening!
