Good morning, everyone.  I'm feeling oodles better this morning, just a residual backache, so that's great!  Thank you so much for all the good wishes.

I didn't do much yesterday after pulling out of granny-helping in school but that was OK; I did sleep rather a lot which helped considerably.  There doesn't seem to be any snow at all here now and there's definitely a freshness in  the air.  I was even able to walk to the shed bare-footed this morning.  We just need a bit more sun now but the rain did help to melt everything so no complaints!

I was intending to go to the White Company shop yesterday and then again today but that didn't happen.  I'm getting lazy.  Never mind, there's no rush, is there.  I also have to get myself to the hospital for a blood test early one morning (just as the sun was rising) in the next week or so, so I need to buck my ideas up a bit.
Still no news about the op date so I'm guessing not March now although I have no idea how much notice one is given, not being used to this sort of thing.  Being on the third week of the liver shrinking diet, I could go in almost at a moment's notice really.

Today I have no commitments until tuition but I do have a loaded ironing basket and more clothes and stuff to wash so that will get sorted today.  Beth's coming to dinner - three cheers!
I got going on preparations good and early and now I have the lunchtime soup and the component parts of the cottage pie for dinner all ready.  The house is smelling gloriously good and my conscience is clear.

Well, better go and get myself sorted.  Dinner may be ready but I'm still unwashed (apart from my hands, of course) and in my night things.  See you tomorrow!


  1. Glad you are feeling so much better. I should know by now when I'm in for a bout of tummy troubles (I have diverticulitis) as it usually starts with awful backache. But I just think, Oh, I've got backache!
    I do hope you get called for your surgery soon, better to get it over and done with and then you can regain your strength again.

  2. Thanks, Margaret. It's been a bit of a nuisance today but nothing to fret about. I hope you stay fit and well.

  3. How are you finding the liver reducing diet? I wonder how much your liver has reduced??

  4. Well, I've got used to it really. The restrictions annoy me, especially the one about when to eat certain food groups but there's no doubt the weight is coming off. I do feel very tired at times though.
    I'll probably carry on with it afterwards, but less rigidly and with more vegetables.
    I hope it's doing the necessary as far as my liver is concerned too! :-)
