DD I better ring you. I didn't see the lady with tea cups at church as I didn't go because of my painful hip and leg.

Here is update, don' read if it's too boring!

Been to the Doc, not my normal one as his surgery was full to bursting and he doesn't do appointments. Went to another, I know him anyway, he gave me an appointment this evening. The pain was because of a trapped nerve. Treatment is rest and strong painkillers. General aches and pains are arthritis. He gave me a good examination to eliminate other causes of the pain. He said I have arthritis in the right knee, he's pretty sure I have it in the lower spine and he thinks my right hip is arthritic too. I need X Rays for knee hip and spine and he wants them to do spine for osteoporosis too. I have a painful lower vertebra when he touched it in a certain way. Gardening is forbidden for at least 5 days. In a way it was a relief to be told. I always feel I'm being a failure if I complain if something hurts.

That's a beautiful cushion, Joyce, and Pat thank you for bringing the thread back with your lovely envelope.

Thank you, PP, for liking my paintings.

Thank you for symapathising. I went to my Doc this morning. He doesn't do appointments. There were 12 people waiting and only 10 chairs. He takes 15 - 20 minutes with each patient. Couldn't face it, I walked away. I've made an appointment with another doctor for this evening. He took over the practice of my previous doctor when she retired, but I'd already changed as she misdiagnosed my daughter's ear infection (she now has to wear a hearing aid) and my friend's Lupus.

Leg isn't hurting so much today though and I took Ibuprofen and Paracetamol before bed with a hot chocolate and I slept for several hours, so felt a bit better this morning.

Sorry to be a bore with this. Just been outside dead heading roses, as that doesn't involve kneeling. I have to kneel to weed, I'm a disaster with a hoe! But it's getting too hot outside now.

Butterflies keep coming into the kitchen, 3 different sorts, but I don't know if they are the same ones that come in. I keep putting them outside.

We loved Sicily. We went to Taormina for a week in September 2015. Lovely restaurants, cute shopping streets, beautiful views and a gorgeous Greek and Roman amphitheatre where we saw ballet danced to opera music. Here is a photo, but it was a cloudy day. We also visited Syracuse and the amphitheatre there.
