    Old Style Daily Wednesday 8th August 2018 8th Aug 18 at 2:54 AM
    This is an ďover the garden fenceĒ type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. Itís a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things weíre going to do today or what weíve achieved already. Everyoneís welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasnít just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please donít post large pictures, or clip art Ė links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that donít have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning

    Morning everyone

    Off out with my niece and nephew this morning for the day. Iím really looking forward to it. It isnít often that I get to go out with them both together because of their different schedules. Iím not sure where we are going, my niece said that they wanted to keep it as a surprise. Wherever we are going Iím sure I will enjoy myself.

    As it is supposed to cool down from today I will make an effort to catch up on the housework tomorrow.

    Specky the sleeping is almost non-existent since the hot weather. I am getting about three hours in total at the moment so not good. Iím sure that it will improve a bit when it cools down though.

    AOD the seafood casserole was lovely and like you, it is very much my type of meal. I really love seafood and this had salmon, cod, scallops, monkfish, prawns and muscles in a rich tomato sauce.

    Thinking of the TAs.

    Csarina I hope that they manage to your OHs scan today so that he will be a step closer to finding out what is wrong.

    Gers I hope that your mum got home as planned and is well settled at home.

    Silver-oldie hopefully your OHs Blue Badge will turn up soon.

    You are so right Lainey, tea and cake so help with convalescence. I hope that your DSIL was up to going out and that you had a good time.

    Snoozer it must be hard for your OH being in this kind of limbo, not having a definitive diagnosis. Hopefully you can both keep busy for the next 4 to 6 weeks while you are waiting.

    Poppy that seems like a sensible plan.

    I hope that you all have the best day possible everyone.

    Good morning everyone
    I couldn't sleep for worrying about things that are out of my control, plus it is still too hot to be comfortable so I thought I would get up, have a cup of tea and post on here.

    I wanted to say Congratulations Nanny Elona, hope mum and baby are doing well xx
    poppy, the new drug treatment sounds a lot more bearable for you than chemo, hope it goes well xx
    snoozer, I have everything crossed for you and Steve xx
    gers, hope your mum is home now and more comfortable xx
    csarina, also hope they get to the bottom of your DH's problems while he is in hospital and that you manage to get some rest too xx
    Sending hugs to the TA's xx

    I have to take some chicken out to defrost for tea tonight. I have a couple of jars of sauce to use up so that will be a nice easy tea to make with some rice. Lee has promised to do some baking too which is bad for my waistline but good for his mental health. I shall just limit myself to a tiny taste so it shouldn't be too calorific.

    I am still waiting for my cross stitch kits to come from the USA. They cleared customs on the 3rd but there is still no sign of them. Hopefully they will turn up today so I can get cracking. I am off out today with my lovely cmht lady so I can pick up a new magazine from WHSmiths. I also need to get my glasses repaired if possible as I have lost one of the nose pieces and they are very scratchy to wear now.

    Hope you all have a good day whatever you are up to, take care xx

    Morning everyone

    hollyharvey - thanks for starting us off x

    Hugs to those that want/need one x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    Cloudy with sun trying to break through, much cooler, although it was really muggy during the night.

    DH up and gone to work stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work and DS2 still in his pit, will wake him shortly, not sure what his plans are for today.

    Dinner last night was egg, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, fried new potatoes and beans, ice cream for dessert. Tonight will be roasted chicken portions, mash, veg and gravy for the menfolk, I'll be having the roasted chicken with veg and jacket potato or a mixed veg. I've started a diet class last night as I want to get my head back in the game as I've put on a little weight and want to stop it before it gets out of control, target weight has been set and that's lower than I was before so we'll see how I get on with this. I've just eaten my breakfast and I'd never normally eat that much! I have my lunch already sorted and I know that's ok.

    Work yesterday wasn't as busy but still had problems with the cash machines, then they managed to sort it mid morning, so hopefully things are settling down. My longer day again today, then on days' off but working again Saturday.

    Keep safe and well x

    Hi all

    Lovely blue sky again today a lot cooler though which should keep the weather moaners happier

    Great day yesterday and my 3 delegates were a pleasure to work with. Not site training today but do have a fair bit to do from home. Going to nip out for a cheeky lunch with one of my besties as we have both been really busy so need a catch up as you do.

    Finished my pizza for tea last night and probably wont bother with anything tonight. As predicted my packed lunch had gone by 11 yesterday Don't know what it is about them but its like they call to me from my me eat me. Its probably because its a rare treat for me but I now really want one of these lovely cool bag lunch bags with different sections for extra treats ....I know small things

    Hoping Mr TA is OK seems a while since TA posted and I know yesterday was results day.

    Right going to crack on to buy some lunch time for later. Have a great day all

    Morning all

    Been raining most of the night but its stopped now and we are in for a nice day although not as hot as before its only in the low 20's today so not the scorching hot we have had.

    Off to work today and its birds of prey today so im not sure how busy it will be.

    Dinner tonight is a mixture of some chicken coated in tika rub with a packet of sausages I found in the back of the freezer and a use up of all the old veg in the fridge such as mushrooms and courgettes and some mash, a right mix up but I am trying to empty the fridge and freezer a bit.

    General tidy round needed tonight and I must put a wash on.

    Snoozer what a shame you now have a long wait of a definite diagnosis x

    Cers hope mum got home xx

    TA hope everything is ok xx

    Have good days all xx

    Morning all.

    DM arrived home at about 10.00am, without any meds or discharge letter. Was told 'they'll follow by taxi'. Well, I think they stretched the understanding of 'follow' by a mile - meds arrived at 5.30pm, and then there were two items missing.

    DM stayed out of bed all day and walked about the flat a fair bit on her own before having had enough by 9.00pm. She also ate well which is a relief.

    Today we are marooned. The European Cycling time trials have meant a huge number of road closures in the west end and city centre. I've no idea how people will get to work, no mail deliveries, district nurses have planned walking routes and re-arranged appointments etc.

    There's food in the fridge and stuff in the freezer. No shopping needed.

    My thoughts are with all the poorlies. I hope Wednesday is kind to everyone.

    Good morning all, I've been up for a while but have been cleaning up after my DS who likes baking in the small hours. He has made delicious doughnuts and although he put away nearly all the ingredients, left me the washing up. And icing sugar everywhere. All cleaned now though. Unfortunately as it is too hot to do this type of activity without opening windows, in came the wasps and he seems to have more or less emptied my wasp spray. I've disposed of the dead wasps too.

    Are doughnuts a healthy breakfast? Don't answer that! I would worry about my waistline but I seem no longer to have one, am spherical.

    I am thinking of tge TA s, Csarina2, Snoozer, poppy, Gers and I know I've missed people out so please excuse that and know that I am sending healing thoughts to all who might need them.

    Today's plan is go shopping for wasp killing spray.
    I was jumping to conclusions and one of them jumped back

    Morning folks. I am back with you this morning. I was too miserable to be sociable yesterday morning after a really horrible Monday. Yesterday was a much better day so back to waffling on to you all again!

    Anyway a re-cap of the horrible day Monday. After Mr TA's tumble out of bed the night before the brain scan showed no damage, so good news to arrive at the hospital for, Downhill after that. He was still pretty dozy and sleepy, off the drip but still on the IV anti-b's. The doctor came round and said no way was he fit enough to travel to Leeds for the Oncology results next day and we should cancel. I didn't have the necessary numbers with me so had to wait till DD finished work and get her to go to our house and gather up all the numbers so I could ring and cancel everything. (No help forthcoming from the ward staff!) Finally sot that sorted and re-booked for next week - if he is fit enough to travel. Then two nurses appeared to "help pack his stuff up" Why I said. Oh has no-one told you he is changing wards again! The 3rd different ward since he was admitted Sat night!

    Got to the new ward 5 ish and it was total chaos with irate short tempered staff, obnoxious foul mouthed patients hurling abuse, and generally totally depressing. No-one had time to tell us what his plan was or anything. Mr TA's DB arrived to visit and said his BIL had been on the same ward and they had the same opinion of it. I was in tears leaving him there and was totally heart-sloughed when I got home.

    DS and I got there yesterday morning for visiting fearing the same again but it was much calmer, the staff were pleasant and helpful and even the obnoxious patients had calmed down! Mr TA looked worn out through lack of sleep. he said it had been horrible through the night with these patients banging, buzzing and shouting all night.

    Still on IV anti-b's and daily bloods. Two young physios came in the afternoon and got him out of bed and into a chair, talked him through gentle exercises and walked him round the ward. A big advance from Saturday when he couldn't move. They are coming back this morning.

    DD arrived with the 3 girls and suggested asking for a wheelchair to take him for a little wander round the grounds. She said there were loads of patients and visitors sat around in the sunshine. The nurses were in agreement so off we went on our little excursion. The two younger DGDs thought it was great fun pushing grandad around! He had really enjoyed the change of scene after being cooped up in bed.

    DS picking me up 10.30 ish for another day of visiting so we will see what today brings. DD bringing the 2 younger girls on late afternoon and, all being well and weather permitting, we hope to wheel him out again. Meanwhile my poached egg on toast is calling and then must pack up my goody bag of eats for the day. I can't do with being hungry! I have a fancy for BLT bagels today. I don't bother with a flask as the take away Americano from the cafe is pretty good. Not very MSE but what the heck!

    I shall read back on yesterday's posts now but from the above comments I gather ELONA is now a grandma. Huge congratulations to all. It sounds like there is more optimistic news for POPPY, GERS DM might have been getting discharged, Mr CSARINA also still in hospital and health updates for the SNOOZERS. ((HUGS)) to all, have a good day if you can and take care all xx

    Am sorry that things have been rough TA but the trip outside sounded good and seeing you all will no doubt lift his spirits.
    Good to read that your DM has settled in at home Gers
    A weather moaner here who is pleased that the temperature has dropped as it means Lu and I can get out and about today, itís been far too hot & unfair to do anything for days.

    Thinking of all poorlies and those who are caring for them, have a good day folks x

    Morning chums,

    Dry in Glasgow but it's been raining and clouds cover the sky.

    Yesterday went exactly as expected as I stayed late in work - and I've still got lots to do. Broke my fast last night with some light nibbles. I think it was boredom that made me hungry more than anything else tbh.

    Tonight is date night with my gran. First I'll take her to the chiropodist and then we'll come back for some food. Really looking forward to it. I typically leave hers around 9pm, so I'll aim to do some job searching during that time before bed.

    Gers - I feel your pain. The positive from all this is that they redone some of the roads to fill in pot-holes
    TA - Jeez, you and the family have been put through the wringer of late. The spin with the DGD's must have been pleasant for all though and I hope Mr TA has a speedy recovery, i really do.

    TA, I'm glad Mr TA had a better day yesterday, I hope it continues. It's awful how some ward staff are much worse than others. Dad was on a ward where the patients were neglected to the extent that he ended up back in intensive care even though we'd been telling them that he had a problem.

    We're still trying to get our heads round what is going on. If it is CLL then Steve has the same as my friends DH who lives just up the road. I have managed to persuade him to give up work again. We don't need the money and also don't need the stress of trying to organise our lives so that he can work 3 days a week. It was sold to me that he would be working from home most of the time but that isn't what has happened. He went back to work for a friend he's worked with before but he's hardly seen him.

    We're off to Yorkshire today, having suffered through the intense heat here, now we're off to much cooler weather just when it seems to be becoming pleasant here. Then on to Edinburgh on Friday with Sis-i-law.
    We're going to the Tattoo on Tuesday because she's never seen it. We went with Laura's orchestra when she was 15ish, they wre playing in the festival and we were helpers. We stayed in uni accommodation and so did one of the pipe bands, they were Canadian police and DD came away with a Canadian police shirt which I think is still in the wardrobe upstairs.

    We've booked a few of the fringe shows but I think we'll have a quieter time than Steve originally planned because he's sleeping more atm.

    Laura's off to Mexico tomorrow on a press trip looking at Tequila and Mescal, she'll be away a week and isn't looking forward to the journeys.

    Ziggypup got the all clear from the vet yesterday thank goodness. Since she had a painful ear infection a few months ago she is terrified of the vet's table. She climbs up your front like a cat and Laura said that she even did it last night without any support from DD. I don't know what we can do about it, any ideas LW. She's treated on the floor now but that might not work all the time.

    Good morning chums and a bit of blessed relief with a very slight drop of rain last night ,good bit of thunder and lightning though, but at least the temperatures have dropped by around 10 degrees so its a lot more comfortable at least and certainly less humid.

    Hope all the poorlies get some cool breezes to chill them out a bit. I can't think of anything worse than being bed bound AND hot.

    MrsTA hope things improve for your OH and he can get some sleep and peace.

    Gers great you have your Mum home so feet up and a bit of R&R for you both I think

    I am pottering with the boys today ,as its cooler I may get DGS Mikey to finish off the painting of front fence.

    Hope everyone has a good day what ever they are doing

    Cheers chums

    Morning all

    Thanks for the thread Holly and hugs for all those in need.

    Yesterday we came up the Caen Hill Flight we buddied up with a hire boat, we were the first boats through and did it in 2 hours 10 minutes, the temperature was in the 70's so a bit cooler.
    We stopped at the top for ice cream from the caf!, then we went to the shop and stocked up on food.

    We then buddied up with another boat to do the last 6 locks, it was into the 80's by then so I was glad to finish locking for the day. We now have a few lock free miles and 2 pubs along the route.

    Have a good day everyone.
    Hugs Hester

    DM's had a visit from a nurse from the rehabilitation unit to assess her needs. As she's already got a walk-in shower, toilet guard, kitchen trolley and walking stick there's nothing else for her.

    Physiotherapy will be arranged (long wait) and some stair climbing practice sessions (shorter wait) too. She's been told to eat more protein and full fat everything - she already has blue top milk and ff yogurt etc.

    DM is now sitting on her sofa watching TV with a tin of soup in each hand lifting them up and down! She's determined to get fitter and stronger!

    I'm being very MSE and not doing anything - not expending money nor energy. I've written a few work emails and that's it. Reading will be taking place.

    snoozer - your planned trips sounds good, you're braver than me going into the Edinburgh crowds!

    First of all, I'm very glad she's got the all-clear. Penny-Dog was often treated on the floor, as getting her onto the table was hard work and stressful for both her and me.

    Does it make any difference if Ziggypup sees a different vet in the practise? Penny-Dog was always much calmer if we saw a female vet, so once I realised this, I always booked her in with either Susie or Sally, not any of the male vets. Other than that.... *scratches head*....

    Ah, yes - one of the dogs who's just stayed, Indi, has chamomile "pillules" they were called, for when he gets over excited/hyper, and they seem to calm him very quickly. I think they were by a company called Helios, and they are tiny little spherical balls, you just pop one into the dog's mouth, and bingo.

    They're actually made for humans, but they certainly work for Indi. I wonder if something like that would help? They're homeopathic, so it's just a wee dose, nothing dramatic.

    Ah, I've found a link to the product:
    This is definitely what Indi has, I recognise the packaging.
    If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.

    Afternoon all.
    It was all go yesterday as the window man arrived swiftly followed by the engineer. The latter was due pm but rang to ask if he could come am ! We didn't know who we were was talking to as we were bouncing between them . We shall wait for the quote for the guttering etc but it sounded a good price, but the poor engineer was left scratching his head for 5hrs . He finally found a fault underground and has put in a request for new cabling, as he said the fault affected the whole street. We noticed this morning there is another engineer up the pole further down the street, so he may be right and we are all affected in some way.
    This morning we have been out to get Hopalong........ aka Mr Fix It, some knee pads, as there is no way I will let him hurt his knees climbing about on the shed roof again . ( they will also come in handy for him pegging down the awning when we are away, when we are on a gravel hardstanding ) Stopped off in the garden centre for coffee and a slice of carrot cake, we did share the cake, then called in the surgery to get an appointment for Mr Fix It's oncology injection.
    This afternoon DGD will be here for a Princess Sofia sleepover, so probably there will be lots of crafting, baking and colouring done .
    Mr Fix It ( plus one.... me ! ) has been invited to the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff, by the University of Wales in their guest box, but as nearly everything is in welsh we have declined, we wouldn't have a clue as to what "was occurring ! " oooooh get us hobnobbing .

    Mr Fix It has made a lamb curry and that's tea sorted, DGD has requested spag bol so I have taken the HM sauce out of the freezer. Don't know if Dad will turn up, I rang him yesterday and he's ill ( and miserable ) again . I should have known that something was up as he was negative about everything last Sunday. I asked if he needed anything or could I do anything and the answer was no. So that's it , I can't do any more for him at present .
    Gers glad your Mum is home, hope she goes from strength to strength. She sounds such a lovely lady.
    TA I hope today is a much better day, hugs going to you and Mr TA
    Poppy we have the same thoughts, carpe diem. Enjoy every moment lovely xx
    Holly I hope you love your suprise
    Hester I take my hat off to you, I only wish I had half of your energy !
    Snoozer I hope you and your DH can sort out the work / life balance. Enjoy the Tattoo.
    AOD I thought doughnuts were part of your 5 a day

    Right I'd better get my tiara on for the princess sleepover party and put the DW on.

    Sending hugs to all those who are unwell / caring for poorlies and also for anyone struggling with life in general.
    Take care all

    Afternoon all,

    Been busy in real life so haven't been posting,though I think I'm up to date with the news here now.
    Happy to see your DM is home Gers,smiling at the tin in each hand excercise.
    TA & Csarina,hope today finds your OHs feeling better.
    Snoozer,sorry to hear youre in limbo re a diagnosis for DH,enjoy your trip. Poor Ziggy- I don't really have any suggestions as Ly1a is also scared of going to the vets,other than we now try to always see the same vet,he doesn't push his luck with her iyswim and keeps his distance until she's come round a bit.It's on her notes now that she's very nervous.She's far too big to get on the treatment table so he ends up kneeling on the floor sometimes She has had a lot of visits recently ,also due to ears and I think the place has become a bit more familiar too,which has helped.They did suggest just taking her to be weighed now and again so there was nothing uncomfortable to experience .Hope DD finds a solution.

    Poppy,it's good to hear of the different treatment plan,you sound very positive and I'm sure it helps xx

    Elona - Congratulations on becoming a granny

    One of the things I have been doing is a complete inventory of my food cupboards and freezers.We have bought a small chest freezer,as the freezer in the fridge is very small and the undercounter one is ok but I just dont have enough space for all the stuff for 4 adults and 2 part time GC.I'm hoping I can keep enough milk and bread in there to save me going out almost every day to town on the bus,so should bein the long run and a big time saver with there only being 1 bus an hour.Also been building my store cupboard back up and it's coming along nicely,I'm like a squirrel in autumn

    DGC are here in a bit,so I don't know why I've tidied up really
    Take care everyone xx

    Afternoon All, just a quick pop in to give all the poorlies & carers gentle hugs & healing vibes
    Hope everyone has a pleasant Wednesday.

    Rained last night so temps are much cooler today & it is very windy.

    Had a Chinese meal last night on the static boat Chinese & enough in the doggy bag for dinner tonight.
