I had a washing machine fall onto my foot @eth they done xrays a week ago but it was pretty fresh and they couldn't see any breaks but its not much better still so its a little worrying. I cant walk much and even sheets touching my foot ia painful.

Re: A long rave

Hi @frog hope you reach your goals with the chores today and find something good on netflix.  I'm watching Harrow on iView at the moment. Australian crime drama.  It's really good, just the sort of thing I like.

Re: A long rave

Do you like tea @frog? I have a little collection of fancy shmancy teas that I treat myself to sometimes when I need a little lift. Hope your Netflixing feels good and your chores go OK ❤

I have dropped son off for his weekend away. Doing a rehearsal at my place today.  Keeping things simple.


Just thinking about how many incompatible social situations I have tried to fit into to, and no wonder I ended up being so frustrated and things not working.  It was all the rapid changes that made my life so complex ... not that I was complex per se ...


Hope you have a good weekend all.  As Good as Possible

Re: A long rave

Hello Everyone Smiley Happy


It's a bit warm, sort of normal warm, considering I'm a bit inland, it's Australia & it's Summer. It has got to the time of year where I have to leave the bedroom curtains open a little at night; I need any little whisper of breeze that might just happen by. I have rubber-backed curtains & the reasons I do is because light & sound disturbs my sleep - having to leave them open a bit means waking up too early for my likings, when you combine the fact that I'm not getting tired at a more resonable hour at night - it makes for scratchy eyes a constant slight headache & bit of a case of the grumpies. I've started taking herbal sleep assist tablets again & yesterday I put a reminder on my phone, because it's been midnight or so before I've been remembering to take them & they take a couple of hours to do anything. I get paid in a couple of days & I'm going to buy a 12 volt, deep cycle battery of at least 100 Amp hour, the car battery that I have on the 2nd solar system isn't running the evaporative air cooler for me & it's that time of year too. I still think this Summer's been kinder than the past couple.
