    Yayy, Friday has finally arrived.

    upload_2018-10-12_8-27-16.png

    The days are getting longer and hotter. Which means that your days are becoming shorter and colder. Sorry for you all ;).
    Today is actually quite windy which makes the temp drop slightly. I love it when the wind blows especially on hot days. Helps tremendously with the heat.

    I am seeing the osteopath later today, I was supposed to go back to him only next week, but my neck, shoulder, lower back and arm muscles keep on wanting to go into spasm. And are in pain. I have had to take pain killers once but am trying to stay away from them for as long as possible. Just when I thought that all was going well and that I was getting back to feeling like a normal person it has started again. I am so so sick of it. I need to order myself a new body. Anybody know where I can get one please?

    Tomorrow morning I have to get up early so that I can go to the traffic department and renew my car license. Hopefully the queue will not be long, as I cannot stand for long periods and I don't have a walking stick or something to indicate that I have that kind of problem. I am not sure if it is the same overseas, but if you are injured or old or handicapped over here you generally get to skip waiting in queues - which is a good thing, those poor people have enough to deal with without having to stand in queues.

    Anyway rant over and I hope everyone has an awesome day.

    I know that single parent feeling. JoesDad did 7 months in Sydney, Australia, had 3 months at home and then did 18 months in New Delhi, India when the children were in their public exam years.

    Usually he spent 2 weeks there and then 2 weeks here. Sometimes it was only 1 week here and sometimes up to 4 weeks over there. It was a punishing schedule especially on his body clock. He can now sleep anywhere at any time of day.

    Wasps live to sting again and I still haven’t found this one

    My finger is much more swollen than yesterday but the swelling hasn’t spread to my hand IMG_1539335372.215136.jpg

    This is what happened within hours when I was stung last year

    I’ll keep taking the pills!

    Don’t despair Carol. Think back to where you were. Setbacks happen on the road to recovery and people like me and you are probably never going to be one hundred percent fit. There are always going to be bad periods with our bodies, but hopefully they will become fewer and further between. And if you need painkillers then take them! It doesn’t matter for short periods - that is what they’re for! (And I am dreadful about taking them when I should too )

    Nagh...not sure if anyone else has done Bikram Yoga, but the room is kept at around 105-110 degrees. Stretches and warm up, followed by 26 postures. It really gives you a a whole body workout..the more often you go, the “easier” it gets....

    Oh, nasty wasp ! I don`t like wasps too. Do you know that some wasps eat bees ?
    I hope your meds work and you don`t get a swelling. Poor Linda.:(
