Bad Sunday blogger!

with 2 comments

I know, I know – I’m supposed to blog on a Sunday, otherwise I’ve got no business calling myself a Sunday-blogger.

However, I ran into some difficulties. Firstly, our internet connection was off more than it was on this weekend. Secondly, I was trying to upload the cutest video to YouTube. It took me ages and for some reason I just couldn’t get it to upload. It kept saying: Success, your video is uploading. But then it would hang and hang and just never actually finish uploading. I’ll give it another stab but I’m not holding out much hope.

Then there are the photo’s on Michael’s cellphone that I still need to send to the PC. Sundry photo’s of roses and Bluebeary. You know, the usual, lol.

On the news front we went to JHB last Tuesday for a quick scheduled trials’ visit. A four-hour round trip for a 15 minute (if that much) appointment. Tedious, but I’m in no position to complain, so I won’t 😉

What was nice, though, was that we were able to go and visit my granny at the retirement home. Turns out it is not so far (4.3km) from the doctor’s consulting rooms. It had been her 86th birthday 2 days previously, so I could take her her prezzie (a rose-bush, what else?) and also see where she lives for the first time.

We had a really nice visit there. My granny is so impressed with Michael. She told me later he is such a good conversationalist and so tall 🙂

(She has obviously met Michael many times before, but she really appreciated it that we came to visit).

We walked all around the grounds of the old-age home and they are quite beautiful. Lovely gardens and very secure and tranquil. My granny goes walking every single day and is a real example to people half her age! She broke her hip five years ago and was determined to walk again, and now she is determined never to stop, because she says if she stops it will only be a matter of time before she can’t anymore. And when I say she goes for walks, I’m not talking about a short stroll, either. It is a big place and she goes all around it.

When we got back to her room, which is lovely and opens up onto the garden, she showed us the scrapbook she is making for little Sarah-Kate. It is so beautiful! I’ve seen some real amateurish scrapbooks before and this was not one of them. I should have expected nothing less, because my granny has always been very arty and a perfectionist. It is really stunning and well thought out and I think Annie (and Sarah-Kate when she is old enough) is going to love it.

Just outside the building, on the grass, came and sat a whole lot of pigeons, waiting for the old guy who feeds them. I have never seen pigeons lying on the grass like chickens sitting on their eggs before. So cute. I was very taken with the whole set-up.

Speaking of Sarah-Kate, that little madam caused a real stir at the old-age home when Annie took her there on my granny’s birthday. Everyone just loved her, and she put on quite a show for them.

She is walking all over the place now at the grand old age of ten-months. Can’t wait to see it for myself. She is such a special little one.

As far as how I am feeling on the extention phase? Well, I feel exactly the same still. I never did treat the mild relapse that I had just after Christmas. It had abated somewhat but a couple of days ago it started up again. It is affecting my right foot and right hand which I am less than thrilled about. Not sure what to do about it, but don’t think I’m ready to treat with steroids just yet. It is not bad enough to warrant that. Bad timing though, as always. Not too worried about it at this point. I’ll take it one day at a time.

Right now I have to go and tackle a mini-mountain of weekend dishes before Michael comes home for lunch and can see how sleg I am on a Monday morning, hehe.
