Do you know what day it is? I'm finding that every day feels exactly the same as the one before and I'm losing the plot! I write all appointments and events down on the calendar so that nothing is forgotten. It will soon be June 1st and what exciting events do we have?
Oh... Well what about July then?....
Zilch, nada, nothing. Blimey our twilight years are sailing by on a sea of boredom. I must get my ass into gear and make PLANS. I don't know what plans yet but they might include puncturing a certain outdoor jacuzzi 😂😁🎶 There were more visitors there yesterday: 3 women and later on a man came to pick them up. It finally went quiet somewhere between 8 - 8.30pm. Thankfully the music was on quietly, it was voices we could hear and squeals from water play. I never thought I would pray for a wet Summer..... until now. It's sunny again today...…..
As I'm feeling all cooked out and totally bored with menu planning on limited supplies, I have taken to ordering two ready meals each time I get lucky with a food delivery slot. This is what I got this time: a meaty meal for G and a veggie one for me. Ping cuisine at its best 👍 so no cooking today!
Oh, and a lemon meringue pie to have afterwards with a good dollop of vanilla ice cream. I'm not going to worry about calories because I have lost 8lbs in weight over the last month due to my IBS anyway.
My blood tests BTW came back clear. Kidneys, liver, thyroid and full blood count all normal so I need to battle on and sort myself out. I have cut down my consumption of dairy quite a bit, cut out sugary things (in the main) and I drink very little alcohol, coffee nor eat much spicy food. The main problem is in trying to control my stress response which is easier said than done when I can't even sit outside and read quietly.
There is no way we will be planning a holiday this year so I need to get my thinking cap on regarding planning pleasant things to do in the near future.
Do you have things planned? Will you be risking a holiday?
For 'ping cuisine' today, so no actual cooking required
For feeling marginally better so that I actually *want* to plan ahead
For the majority of caring, unselfish people who stick to the rules no matter what
Stay safe, wherever in the world you happen to be x
