HELLO FORKERS!

A Bloody Mary would be good KEF, but I've just googled my meds and it says that alcofrolicking may impact on it's efficacy 

Someone else will have to have my share this week .........

HELLO FORKERS!

All right you lot, nursing friend on foodie forum was firm with me so I've been to the Walk-in Clinic - got there at 8.55am - 25 people ahead of me!!!

Then had to go into the Mall and wait for Boots to open at 10.30 to get the prescription filled - Erythromycin 2 caps 4 times a day - think I should just be able to squeeze four doses in today if I don't go to bed too early 

The nurse said I'd been a brave girl  'cos it looked really sore down inside my ear - I do have a high pain threshold - I suppose it might be why I've been having really horrid dreams the past few nights. Shall keep taking the paracetamol and yoghurt 

When I got home OH had mowed one of the lawns, emptied the 'made' compost bin onto the veg patch and dug it in, turned the other compost into the empty bin, and dug up the really old straggly unsalvagable unscented rose that had been earmarked to be replaced. How's that for a well-trained under-gardener?  He'd remembered all the tasks we'd been discussing over the past few weeks!  

So now we'll have a coffee before we get on with the rest of the gardening over today and tomorrow!

Morning KEF 

Yes, we're making plans and lists - what's the earliest acceptable time to wake the neighbours with the lawnmower? 

It's a rotten shame that I'm a bit under the weather - I've got an ear infection  it started in the cartilage of my outer ear the other day so I put some antiseptic cream on it and took some aspirin, but today my whole ear is swollen and crusty - I look like a rugby player (well that bit of me does) and the side of my head and neck are painful and the ear canal is a bit blocked - sorry if anyone's eating their breakfast 

I shall have to carry on with the painkillers today and go down to the surgery tomorrow and stay there until someone can see me. The problem is that sitting in the waiting room is wasted gardening time 

Something is eating my lawn
