My son is taking me for a chest Xray later today .  My heart beating too fast woke me at 1am and could not get back to sleep so very weary this morning.  I expect the heart medication takes a few days to take effect.  I have poked my head out the back door to breathe in some fresh air but it is cold and drizzly.

Beautiful day so will take my chair outside and watch the birds Here is a collar dove stripping my pyracantha of its berries.  I hope they leave  the holly berries.  The rosehips have nearly all gone.  My new heart pills have just been delivered so have had my first one.  Here's hoping!  Oops looks like pics not being accepted at present!

Just back and been from pillar to post.  Thank goodness my son was with me.   Still not had an Xray but will wait till I feel rested before going for that.   So very tired now after all that travelling around.  Whatever do sick people do who do not have friends or family to help?

Going for a chest Xray with one of my sons at lunchtime.  Still breathless and have persistent backache that is driving me to tears.  I have been awake since 1 am so feeling very weary.

Three of the family have spent all day gardening.  My pelargoniums are all in, lots of pruning done.  Potatoes harvested.  Companion for my chest Xray tomorrow with transport booked.  Hooray!!!  It has been glorious gardening weather today.  Splendid garlic brought from the Isle of Wight and Hibiscus Tbags to lower my BP!!!  I feel like the children have become my parents now!

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
