    Hugs, Fuds - hope they get to the bottom of it. i have beta blockers to take in case of an anxiety attack - they do not like me at all and consequently it has to be a really bad attack for me to take them. i think they are there now as a 'security' type placebo - i haven't had to take one for some time, even with everything that was going on with dad.

    Good luck with househunting NM and Mrs LW.

    I am busy busy, as ever. The study is nearly finished now and we have got to the 'pictures' part of the lounge. i hung curtains today - but they are a couple of inches too long - i think i am going to cut the eyelets off and put a header tape on there, it will solve the length issue more easily than taking them up at the bottom. If i get that done this year, they'll be lucky....

    Sorry for being late posting a reply but my DH's health took a dive yesterday, I think he's coming down off his injections, the next is not due till next week. However he was a little better this morning and managed to drive me to the supermarket to get some supplies. First time we are able to get out due to the amount of snow . He's now dozing in the recliner and that's where he will stay, if I have any say about it. He's as stubborn as a mule ! ( another RV ).
    Monna you have nothing to be sorry about. It's me, not you, as the saying goes . After 60+ years I should have known better than to try to make scones. My late Mum could make them and pastry with her eyes shut, I have not followed in her footsteps I'm afraid . I'm pretty good at cakes so I shall stick to those, but thank you all for your time and tips.
    Fuddle sending healing vibes and many gentle hugs.
    Karcher I'm glad that you're Ok and posting.
    Hugs to anyone who needs them.

    I'm taking a little tea break . Henry and I have been for a little wander chatting as we go . Well I talk and he listens with an understanding smile on his little blue face .

    I used to have Charles but he became far too heavy to lug around as he was a wet and dry . Henry lives on the landing and does the bedrooms bathroom and landing .

    He wont reach from the bottom to top of the stairs from the hall and is now too heavy to carry up so mainly I use my EMop for all the downstairs rooms as they and the hall are hard floors .

    I have a shark with lift off pod for stairs , lift off has a tool for coving , edges , skirting tops of mirrors etc and is handy for curtains too .

    VJsmum I did exactly that with a pair of very wide extra long curtains - lots of big windows here - from next . They were quite dear fully lined and meant to be machine washable . They puddled a bit on the floor but the first time I planned to wash them I checked online and many reviewers were claiming the rings had rusted or damaged their machines .
    Glad I had the excess length off tidied the top edge and put rufflette tape on . Job done . The only time I've bought ring tops . I 've always made my own soft furnishings but they were a very pale grey/ blue fabric which I'd tried and failed to find .

    Mar I'm surprised poor Jim has his ears intact . His ears must be constantly burning

    Back to the grindstone .

    fuddle this is just a hiccup, not the end of the story. These are early days and you are like a toddler learning to walk. Every time you fall over you are afraid that you will never be able to walk with confidence. Things will sort themselves out eventually and you will be sorted out, promise.

    My vacuum does not have a face, but if it did it would be leering sarcastically. It doesnt have a name either, although I have a pool of possible nomenclature to choose from as the occasion and mood demands.

    Poor little FUDDLEY ONE, if you need to be there for safety love then it's the very best place as they will spot any changes no matter how small and deal with them. Sad for you that you've ended up in hospital again but on the other hand pleased that they are taking care of you. Just you concentrate on being calm and getting well again xxx.

    The main thing is I'm home.

    I have antibiotics incase of chest infection even though my chest sounds clear and so is x-ray.
    I have steroids incase of an asthma attack.

    But I've been taken off the beta blocker as it likely that it's stopping the receptors in my lungs or something like that. I'm now on a calcium channel blocker which is supposed to treat angina. For me it's a way of slowing my heart rate down but I'm not at all happy.

    Thank goodness I see the cardiologist on Tuesday.

    No scan to see if I have a blood clot 'as it's highly unlikely given the situation'.

    So we're no further forward. Something is up and I just have to 'hope' that it is a reaction to the beta blockers. I'm weary and I'm scared folks.
    Please don't judge my story by the chapter that you walked in on.

    Easier said than done fuds but try as much as you can to breathe slowly and try to keep the anxiety levels down .
    I wondered about the beta blocker but not trained medically it could be anything .
    At least you're back home . All the worry in the world wont help so try to settle for now and see what Tuesday brings .

    Love and a very gentle hug

    Thank you Polly. I've been on the auld Google and it seems that these calcium blockers help with anxiety so at least that is something.

    Thank you for being with me today fence folk. As you'll be aware I don't have too many people I can run to in real life so be sat alone ( DH was on kid school duty then I said he had to go to work) in the hospital knowing you're listening and supporting me, well it's lovely. Thank you.

    RV was on betablockers for a while after his heart attack and they were brilliant for him. He didn't stay on them for that long. I hope this stuff works Fuds x

    So sorry you're poorly again fuddle, hope you get lots of rest.

    nm, there has to be give and take in any relationship, I think your DS will have to compromise somewhere. Good luck with the house hunting.

    fuds I've just remembered you have a copy of Handmade Apothecary as I do . Lots of the stuff in there cleaning products , bone broths and many teas etc are fine . I'm aware the Cardiovascular System , Respiratory others are covered in detail .
    Not sure if you've made many of the remedies . With herbal teas etc some are fine but some people have intolerance to some ingredients .
    For example I have chronic bronchitis and dried yarrow in the cold and flu tea doesn't agree with me so I've altered the ingredients . The love heart tea also has yarrow so that's amended too .
    This may not apply in your case but I thought I'd mention it , certain foods don't agree with different people and herbs are the same .

    Hope all is well babs , any progress with the declutter ?

    I'm off to wash my hair if i don't get back on tonight . Sleep well all you especially fuds , nm , karcher and burtha if you read .

    Glad you have an appointment with the cardiologist soon. It sounds as if you are back to square 1 again. I think the doctors are foxed again. They will get there you just have to learn to be patient. There is one good thing most doctors hate to be beaten and if it is unusual they get fired up and determined to find the cause. Someone is probably reading everything they can find about your symptoms now.

    Hang on in there no one here is a quitter and we will stay with you. I am not going under your bed though, they are dusty places and I am allergic to dust. I don't know if you still have a pantry under your bed I still do.

    Hopefully, If I can persuade DS that a house he has been refusing to view is OK as I say it is and get him to say yes too it I think this could be the one. He has agreed to look on Friday if he is not too exhausted.

    This week is a very busy week for them. Last week was hectic and if everywhere was stripped like most supermarkets they will all need a lot of stocking up. On top of that it is Mothers day on Sunday. He is on flowers this week. Thursday and Friday have estimate for the flower pick are 47,200 cases. That is boxes of a dozen or so bunches, both days just for the North West. Ald! don't exactly do the most flowers of the supermarkets.

    Fankooo NM. The best thing is there's no pneumonia. I've been on me knees and no pneumonia I'm coming to realise that I think I just need stability. Keep doing what I'm doing to help myself but also to find a way that the medics know about to stave off problems. I'm doing better this evening.

    Yey, I didn't realise you had it too. I'm hooked. Yeah I would like to try the love heart tea but I'm waiting a wee while for the reasons you mention. I've never had yarrow or hawthorn. It's in my nature to 'mess on' and excitably experiment but I'm getting older, wiser and more sensible.

    You are all just wonderful!
