    Aaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!

    I've had NO internet ALL morning! Grrrrrr!

    I was going to go out, then changed my mind, as I'm out tomorrow and Thursday, and don't want to risk a relapse, as I'm feeling so much better at the mo.




    Alfie, I read Battersea Cats as battered cats.



    World Post day....... it was just recently that I thought about posting on here to say how clever it is that you can order something from the Netherlands, and then it arrives!
    All those people who could just take your money and run, but they don't!
    And all those people who enable you to get your thing without leaving the house! Es ist wunderbar!


    It's when you can track your order and see where it goes at each stage that you realise how good the organisation of it all is.

    And even little letters! You write something, put it in a box a few yards away, and someone, somewhere else in the world, gets it!



    It's the little things in life that marvel, isn't it?

    Poor Sleazy.


    I wonder why your eye is so red and sore.

    Did you rub it with something on your hands, or is it a stye?
    Is it the eyeball that is red, or the eyelid?

    It's the eyeball ... GP told me what to treat it with (said they don't prescribe eye drops or ointment now - NHS saving money perhaps?).

    Anyway, some antibiotic eye drops that I now have every two hours for 2 days, then every 4 hours for another 3 days.

    Wondered where you were - thought you'd maybe gone out for the day.

    Grrrr. The internet went again.

    Right in the middle of editing a post, too.

    This might be a thing, so if I disappear, don't panic!

    (But I will be out a lot the next two days, although I should be able to post sometimes if the internet is on).


    Chloramphenicol?

    I think, (dredges brain for distant memory), that most bloodshot eye conditions do resolve by themselves, but those types don't tend to be sore.

    Has Bobby been licking your face straight after doing his 'ablutions'?

    At one point a couple of days ago, it was physically hurting, so more than sore, hence my GP visit. She said if the Chloramphenicol doesn't settle it down in a couple of days she'll send me down the local hospital. she had a look, but no sign of a stye, just very infected ... more comfortable when it's closed, so I look a bit strange ...

    It's possible that you may have brushed you eye or forehead with a bobby-germy hand, and later touched that spot and then your eye.

    It's very difficult with pets.

    I must admit, I did use to try to wash my hands if a pet licked them, but it is easy to forget, and of course, it might not have been that anyway.

    I'm terrible for touching my eyes, and all parts of my face. The eye touching started years ago when I wore contacts, to make sure there weren't any loose lashes that could get under the lens, or to wiggle away somehing irritating the eye when the lens was in.
    I get sort of 'itchy' a lot, so that's why I touch my face...it's part of the ADHD...hypersensitivity to light touch. It's worsened since I grew my hair, because the longer hair keeps touching my face.

    I carry some antiviral spray around with me everywhere, as a result.

    Must say - it's been a beautiful day today! Anyone would think
    it was summer.


    I've been trawling around town for most of the day - needed
    quite a few bits and bobs including decent walking boots, couple
    more shirts, warm cardy etc.


    I'm going away this coming weekend with son (Friday to Tues).
    We're off to stay with lovely family up Lincoln way. They've got
    plenty planned including a trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, a joint
    birthday party for gorgeous granddaughters at the local village
    hall. It makes good sense because their birthdays are
    only one month apart. It's also my daughter's birthday
    & we're all off out for an evening meal to celebrate. Think there'll
    be quite a few of us raising our glasses etc etc.


    And in between all of that, we'll be out dog walking - that's one
    of the reasons why I treated myself to new walking boots!


    Puddy cat will be coming up to stay at the house, I always like
    to take her with me (if possible), and a couple of good friends
    will be staying at mine for a well earned break. Happy days.


    Couldn't believe the amount of people I saw in town (all ages,
    not just youngsters), who were walking around scrolling on their
    blooming mobile phones. One mum (complete with pushchair),
    was so engrossed with her phone that she almost collided with
    me - luckily I managed to jump out of the way. It was like
    being surrounded by zombies, was fairly pleased to get
    back home.


    Sorry to hear about your poorly eye Sleazy. I've had a red eye
    recently. It happens to me a couple of times a year. My optician
    says it's 'digital eye strain' & gives me a telling off,
    but thankfully it's nothing dodgy, health wise. It usually rights
    itself after a few days or so.


    That's just reminded me. I'll try to post as many events as
    possible before I go away, because there's quite a few that I
    think may be of interest. But I'll just be posting a shorter
    version of each, iyswim.


    I’m famished now so going to have a rummage through the
    freezer to see what I can rustle up!

    Can't sleep, so got up and had a shower.
    Mme. sleeping ok, judging by her snoring ...
    Bobby's didn't even sniff me, but left by his door once I came into the lounge.

    Oh well, only two and a half hours until my butler shift starts, and I can't even stay on here because my eye hurts .....

    Suppose that eye'll be in and out today,
    That was supposed to be punny by the way ......

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well on this thoughtful yet scrumptious
    day!



    Mental health problems can affect anyone, any day of the year, but
    10 October is a great day to show your support for better mental
    health and start looking after your own wellbeing.

    What are mental health problems?

    Our mental health is just like our physical health: everybody has it
    and we need to take care of it.

    Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any
    given year. They range from common problems, such as
    depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia
    and bipolar disorder.

    Find information and support >>>

    Taking care of our mental health

    We all need to take care of our mental health and wellbeing
    whether we have a mental health problem or not.

    Mental wellbeing describes how you are feeling and how well you
    can cope with day-to-day life. It can change from moment to
    moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

    We have some tips on practical steps you can take to improve and
    maintain your wellbeing including making time for yourself,
    building positive relationships and getting active.

    World Homeless Day is an annual event on the 10th of October.

    History

    The concept of 'World Homeless Day' emerged from online
    discussions between people working to respond to homelessness
    from various parts of the world.

    The Inaugural World Homeless Day was marked on the 10th of
    October 2010.

    Since its founding, World Homeless Day has been observed on
    every continent except Antarctica, in several dozen countries.

    Use of the idea of 'World Homeless Day' is open for all to use...
    anywhere in the world.

    Purpose

    The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to
    homeless people’s needs locally and provide opportunities for the
    community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while
    taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides.

    Wednesday 10th October 2018 (and 10/10 every year!)

    Join in this celebration of Scotland’s traditional national dish to
    help feed hungry children in some of the poorest countries across
    the globe.

    The small Scottish Highland village of Carrbridge – home of the
    annual World Porridge Making Championships – has teamed up
    with the Scottish-based charity, Mary’s Meals to establish an
    international World Porridge Day.

    We hope you will take part by joining porridge makers across the
    globe to help support the work of Mary’s Meals.

    For all the latest news, check out the Mary’s Meals Facebook Page.

    You can also follow @MarysMeals on Twitter.



    Mary’s Meals, which operates its international headquarters from a
    tin shed in the Argyll area of the Scottish Highlands, has one
    simple aim: To provide a daily meal in a place of education so
    chronically hungry children are encouraged into school, where they
    can gain a basic education that can provide an escape route from
    poverty.

    Mary’s Meals works in 14 countries, providing daily meals for more
    than 1.2 million hungry children every day they attend school.

    World Porridge Day aims to raise awareness of the role that
    porridge plays in Mary’s Meals’ largest school feeding proramme in
    Malawi, where a daily mug of maize-based porridge ‘likuni phala’
    enables children to attend class and learn. One year after the
    introduction of Mary’s Meals, 100% of teachers said children in
    their class found it easier to learn.

    It costs just £13.90 to feed a child with Mary’s Meals for a whole
    school year.

    You can help impoverished communities to build a better future by
    supporting Mary’s Meals on World Porridge Day. Get together with
    family, friends or workmates and cook up some good, hearty
    porridge – or maybe bake some oatmeal cookies or flapjacks – and
    ask everyone to make a donation to help support Mary’s Meals.

    Mary’s Meals can provide a mug of likuni phala porridge for just
    7p, so donations of any size will make a huge difference.

    Have a brilliant and safe day all whatever you have planned. I will

    That's a nice word....spurtle!


    I have heard it before, but not for ages!



    Interestingly, they can be round or flattish......











    I really like things made of wood, so was interested to see how fine they can be!

    Beech is traditional in Britain, whilst in the US, cherry wood or maple is the usual.



    The round one would be good for poking and prodding, too!


    I got my second nice surprise......... I've had a letter printed in a publication! No reward or anything, just the glory of seeing one's words in print!


    Ok, come in number three, your time is up!

    Myrtle got a spurtle for her turtle.
    What's this spurtle poky-me-prod all about then.

    Interesting posts today Alfie. Not saying they aren't usually, but Mental Health Day and porridge! Homelessness hasn't really affected me personally, but my father was one of the 'displaced people' following WW2 and used to tell me how they had walked miles and miles.

    He spent some time in a British camp in Italy and later Germany while the Allies decided where to send them. I think finally he was given the option of England, Canada or Australia. He always had great respect for The Queen as she apparently spoke up for the displaced people as Princess Elizabeth as she was then, and suggested that the Commonwealth should settle them rather than send them back to their own countries and an unknown fate. My Father was a royalist and the communists were now in power. He was convinced that had he been sent back, it was unlikely he would have survived.

    Well, that's me ramble about serious stuff over for now.

    Interesting story about your father, Sleazy.
    It's easy to forget just how many people had to move huge distances after the war. Not just in Europe either. Look at India/Pakistan.



    Alfie, your coming weekend break sounds lovely! Lots of different things all coming together for one big joyfest! I bet you'll have a whale of a time!
    Not sure what the weather has in store, though.
    Lincoln is nice.....I've only been once, several years ago, for a Cathedral event, but it was good!

    I visited an old mill today, which had a shop full of local crafts, very good ones. Saw some unusual jewellery.
    They had some hand-made wooden utensils, but no spurtles.
    There's a cafe there, which has become a restaurant, but they couldn't give us a meal because they had 'lots' of people in and only one chef. Not even chips. Not even a salad. They had tables spare, but even so, couldn't serve us.
    Couldn't even order anything for twenty minutes. Didn't really understand that bit.
    I ended up having a piece of cake, which I didn't really want.
    It was all a bit surreal.

    On the way home, I popped into my local shopping mall place to get some stuff from Smith's, and decided to go to M&S and have my favourite toastie, as I'd only had a banana and the piece of cake all day.

    One of the things I'd bought in Smith's was a magnetic board, for my kitchen. (My fridge-freezer is integrated, so I can't stick magnets on it). As I walked into M&S, the magnets set the alarm off.
    So, when I was ready to leave, I decided to find an assistant, and explain that I would set the alarm off on the way out! She came with me to make sure I wasn't arrested!

    Several years ago, something similar happened when I walked into a music shop. I'd previously bought some cabling, and the copper wire set the alarm off as I walked in. All eyes turned to look at me, so I said "But I'm coming in!"

    Another time, again in M&S, the cashier had forgotten to take the security thing off something, some high-cost food, can't remember what, so that set off the alarm. I had the receipt, though, luckily. That's one reason why I always, always ask for the receipt. In the small local supermarkets, they always ask if I want the receipt and I always say yes. The tills are up the other end of the store from the doors, and I don't want the risk of a false accusation, especially as bags aren't handed out any more.


    It was jolly hot today! I was baking at the mall! And at the mill we were sitting outside.....it was too hot inside!

    Well, I exhibited my lifestyle manager prowess today.

    Mme broke a tooth last night, so yours truly rolls up at the dentist and succeeds to get her a 1530 appointment for today as somebody had cancelled. Then I went to her school to plead her case for leaving early today, explaining that she wouldn't want to ... but it was annoying her. Anyway, rolled up at the school at 1500 and took her there. An hour later and almost £120 down after her composite repair job. I just has has plain NHS Mercury for my own gnashers.

    Plus bits of housework.

    Visit to Sainsbury's on the way home and now cooked and eaten, wine being enjoyed.

    Eyes still bad despite drops every two hours. Now both of them, so treating both.
