Those of you who come and read my blog regularly might wonder about certain things, so I will give some updates about recent happenings/unhappenings/events.
First of all: Andrew's mice. I am very happy to say that on the second attempt, the mice made it! They arrived in good health, with lots of tales to tell. A stone from my heart that!!
Secondly: The duck. Well, the doctor really (quack, duck? Anyone??). Turns out I wasn't going to see a man, I was going to see my own gp who is a very nice young lady. It was she I saw the last time. She pestered me somewhat with taking my blood pressure. Twice! Which hurt!! But other than that, it was a great meeting. I have been prescribed more migraine pills (to get when I need it, which I don't very often fortunately) and yes, even more of those other pills that don't seem to work.
But, I have also been given a referral to a physiotherapist. Now I just have to find one. Which means asking my colleagues whether they know a good one, preferably one who does do massages. They might hurt, but they certainly do help as well. Because we figured out that the majority of my headaches actually are tension headaches. I need to 'untense'. Which is not a word according to the red squigglies under the word, but you know what I mean. During the summer my sister said I stooped a bit as well (my Mum didn't see it) and I think she might be right.
Originally she was going to give me medication to prevent me from getting migraines, but I felt that was a bit much. I only get two to three a year and the medication to combat it works a treat, so no need for more meds in my opinion.
Thirdly: Brom. He is on his way home and I am expecting him every day! He has had a blast in Scotland, visiting castles and the sea and even going to the cinema. He met lots of people, did some cooking and I just want to thank Yamini for being such a great host and organising all those fantastic treats.
Fourthly: Knit and purl. I am working on two projects at once right now. I need to finish some mice for Mice for Mama and I want to keep going on my poncho/cardy as well. So, I bought a new pair of scissors, another row counter, more of this and more of that. That way I can take one to work (the cardy) and keep the mice at home.
And that's it. I don't think there is anything else that needs to updated. Of course if I am mistaken in that matter, I would like to hear from you in the kindest words possible. No screaming, no hollering, no shouting. And definitely no cursing, in whatever language!!
