  1. The Hospital Stay

    So I might have worried you when I mentioned stroke at the end of the previous entry. As I said then. Don't panic.
    It's a "mini stroke"/TIA/transient ischemic attack.

    So. To the beginning. Well. Actually a bit before that for further clarity. Then to this beginning.

    Last year my mum was diagnosed with a heart condition. AF/Atrial fibrillation/one valve in the heart doesn't beat in time with the rest so the rest have to work a bit harder. She didn't ...

  2. Oh So Many Plants

    Right then. Haven't had clear access to my keyboard for a while. It seems that the last thing I wrote was my plant theft. We never recovered the plant. But clearly I'm not the only one. Going into town, so to speak, I passed a home with a lower ground floor flat (you might also know it as a basement flat perhaps, where you have to go downstairs to get to the front door from the street) with a BEAUTIFUL array of flowers in containers. Many many different flowering plants. Clearly this is a keen gardener ...

  3. A Plant Thief

    *Added later*
    I just looked it up. It's a thing. Turns out I was lucky to keep any of my tomatoes last year. I'm not so sure about growing veg this year now. They have to be out front for the sun. The back is a bit too shady. Ironically we got new, bigger pots for the lavender. This leads me to believe that last years planters haven't yet been stolen because they're full of dirt? I guess I need to worry about all of it. I was so proud of my tomatoes last year. I did worry that someone might ...

  4. stuff and things

    The foxes are screaming again. It's to be expected. It's breeding season afterall. I put chicken out for them yesterday but they didn't take it. To be fair mum put some out the day before and yester a neighbor had something out front. They've probably taken my chicken now though. Why do we have chicken to waste you may wonder. And where have I been? I said I'd pop in over the week or so to fill in events.
    Hah. We knew you wouldn't keep it up. You never do. I bet you were doubting yourself ...

  5. About the Dog

    by , 01-21-2021 at 11:30 PM (Barmy Blue's Bland Blog)
    Okay. This one's still ongoing but here's what we have so far. The dog, Yuki (Siberian husky 12 years old but 13 in February) keeps nibbling. And I don't mean a little bit. I mean REALLY going for it like a dog possessed. Originally belly and front paws but it has progressed to elbows and back legs/feet. What with recent issues it's not so easy to go to the vet. We can't just walk in in morning surgery like normal. We have to get an appointment and only one of us can go in. Vaccinations were also ...
