Evening all. First night at home for weeks, and I am by myself. OH at Pilates.

Anyone fancy a few beers and a takeaway?

KEF, loving the sound of nursie uniform, although it would need to be worn with the hotpants.

Tour of garden done. It is amazing how quickly things return to their wild state. I think I will need a machete rather than a fork, to clear some of this.

Thanks Fg. As always your knowledge and wisdom, never mind your sense have humour, have been greatly missed.

As I said to my mum before leaving, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Morning friends; assuming you still remember who I am.

I am back from my mums after several weeks looking after her while she was blind.

The good news is that she has now regained some sight in the good eye, and has thrown me out, because I was making too much of a fuss!

One of the most traumatic periods of my life, probably worse than my divorce.

Any way, home now, desperately need some me time, and some garden time.

One fantastic thing did happen, I have managed to get the job as expedition medic on a trip to the arctic next year. Sadly still have to pay, but a much reduced amount. The trip is to go and study Beluga whales, which should be fun. I have to learn how to shoot before going, due to the risk of Polar Bear attack.

Please forgive me for not trying to catch up on what you have all been up to. Hope you are all well and will hopefully see a bit more of you.

Td immunisations...

Please, please , please have tetanus boosters. Sadly I have looked after patients with Tetanus, and the outcome can be very bleak. I have seen a case due to a garden incident.

Like many doctors, I had a habit of "forgetting" my boosters, but having spent some time in recent years in the bush in various 3rd. world countries, I became more sensible.

Seems like everyone has been busy.

I have tried to relax and do nothing, and I think I do feel less stressed. Up early tomorrow for drive South to Mums, and more days of who knows what?

Hope all the workers have a good week, that the rest of you get out in our gardens and that the sick get better.

Rose bush help!

Sadly Amilee, your Rose is dead, it is no more, it has fallen off its perch; it is not resting and is not pining for the fjiords.

Day off for good behaviour. Little sister gone to look after Mum. Sadly second operation does not appear to have worked, so Mum is now nearly blind.

I am going to try and relax in the garden, hope you all manage to do the same.
