    Hello bubbs

    Doc wanted to know why I decided to stop taking Gabapentin, it hadn't been added to my records when I had to have home visit. She's not happy that I'm stopping them as they are an additional painkiller but since I've cut right down my feet aren't as swollen. She's accepted the fact that I don't want them anymore, if pain increases she said she can increase my slow release morphine or give me something else in addition to.
    The wheezing is here to stay unfortunately, I have to learn to live with it I guess. I can use my inhalers so not all bad. Just need to get the light headedness in check and I'll be off, no stopping me. It takes me an age to walk around 3 or 4 aisles in my local Mr T

    Hope you are ok and your wheezing has gone, if not get yourself to the doc

    I excelled myself this morning dgd breakfast made beans and sausages , went to put my porridge in microwave and couldn't find it

    Though I thought I had already put milk and porridge in a bowl , so I put porridge and milk in another bowl and popped it in the microwave

    And with that I suddenly realised where my porridge was .....

    Yes you guessed it

    Under dgd beans and sausages ...I quickly retrieved them and made her fresh

    But I can imagine the story she will be telling her Mam and Dad tonight

    As she said to me this morning with hand gestures ...you really are going to have to stop forgetting things and start listening when people are talking to you Grandma .

I can't be late it's not in my nature.

    Then the dissertation...... Well still worried to hell

    I don't tend to have smoothies that often. I'd rather give my gut some work to do in breaking down proper food ( extra calories burned ) than something that has almost been broken down completely.

    Bet they are brilliant for Mr TM post cycling race, calories into the system fairly quickly and you can chug down a fair amount of calories without realising

    Tinyshoes - I really feel for you. I am dreadful at losing things. Have you looked in the pedal bin/recycling? I have found things in there before that I have lost. Last week I lost neighbours keys and oh said we need to change the locks straight away. Luckily found them in a back pack - no idea how they got there so keep searching in random places and hope you get lucky. I think sometimes all this money saving malarky can make things a little complicated and you are more likely to lose/misplace things. Good luck.

    Shelves cleared of the hipp at our tesco tonight so business must be booming for them lol.
