Nite nite orl

Well tomorrow is gonna be a break from my normal clothes 'cos I'll be wearing a skirt for the first time in many, many years!  It's a long skirt, potentially too long, so may have to be taken up but I'll be going around with nothing on my legs tomorrow so I'm bound to trip over which means I'll be more reliant than ever on my quad cane lol


I've taken my last pills of the day and the tea is rapidly kicking in, so I'm gonna head off to beddy-byes now.  I'll see you all briefly in the morning.


Nite nite orl.

  • Have bath - was in there for an hour today and now I look like a sultana lol
  • Get dressed
  • Turn immersion heater off - I went up and did it at 3.19pm
  • Charge up FitBit
  • Email webhosts about the errors on the pages
  • Phone pharmacy on Monday
  • Give hallway mat away to Freegler/bin it tomorrow
  • Give Graze vouchers away to Freeglers
  • Read and review 3 Kindle Unlimited books
  • Study my courses
  • Take evening pills
  • Go to bed


Well, I've had...

...2 sips of the "Night Time" tea and I'm already yawning - that's impressively fast work on a par with even ginger!  Just gotta wait and see what it does to my bladder now lol


I made myself...

...chuckle and shake my head at myself first thing when I went to get my glass of water.


Why?


Because last night's "Night Time" tea by Pukka had been left stewing literally all night!  I made it for myself then obviously totally forgot!  lol


I've definitely brought it in this evening though, so we'll see if it has any affect on me, other than on my bladder lol


I've just...

...done a bit of editing on 3 of my grocery orders and next week is gonna be a total break from the norm for 4 days 'cos I've got 4 samosas, 4 onion bhaji's, a large tub of olives and 4 packs of ready-to-eat fruit as well as the instant soups that are already in the cupboard.


I've also adjusted the last two October orders and put J2O's on there in preparation for NaNo23 and I've gotta write 7,500 words a day to earn one as well as there being enough for one at the start (before I've written a single word) and one when I've put the final full stop in.  It's expensive but only twice a year and I need to do it for me instead of being at everyone else's beck and call all day, every day.


It'll be a challenge, but I'll be done in 7 days if I manage to crank out 7.5k words a day, every day.  I managed it for JanNo as a new widow and new carers coming in every day, but I'm used to it all now so I'm hoping it's achievable.  I'm not gonna attempt to finish it any sooner than a week, but it's a hopefully achievable challenge now.


Can I get anyone a drink?

I'm gonna go and make myself a large mug of drinking chocolate... can I get you a drink while the kettle is boiling?

Today's (30th September 2023) only meal (lunch) photo

Today's lunch was a total break from the norm and made entirely by my carer - a Satay rice noodle snack pot followed by an apple and because I was still in need of almost 1000 calories I finished off with a vegan almond ice cream too, so I'm gonna be feeling like an ice cube all afternoon and I'll have to crack open the tub of chocolates so that I can get even more calories into me.


I'm having for the first time in at least a week tomorrow so I'll be able to get a few hundred calories into me then, thanks to the dairy-free spread that I'll be using on the toast and I'll be having the penultimate orange juice to wash it down with too... my throat and belly aren't gonna know how to cope with two meals in a day instead of one lol


Here's today's lunch photo:



Looks like...

...I'll be having breakfast tomorrow, for the first time this week and today's lunch is gonna be different from my usual baked beans or tinned spaghetti 'cos it's a rice pot.  Next week is gonna be mugs of soup then back to the tins again the week after.

Mornin' mornin'

How's everything going in your world this morning?


Me?


I'm sooo cold and can't do anything about it until after lunch and, if it's like yesterday with my lunchtime carer charging up her phone, not even then either!


I've taken my morning pills and remembered to start charging up my phone, so I'm all set for the morning now.


Task for today is to keep working on the memorial site to see if I can get it and the other site to show up online rather than producing a 403 error.


My daily virus scan found an advanced issue, so I'll resolve that then it's time to put up today's to-do list, then wait for my carer to turn up methinks.


Friday 29 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I've popped my last pills of the day a bit early 'cos I've had an emotional day, I'm cream-crackered and in a lot of pain.


I tried to order my repeat prescription a couple of hours ago and there was a note on there saying that I had to contact the clinician for a review of all of my various pills, so I phoned and the receptionist has organised for a prescription to be sent to the pharmacy ready for Monday when I've gotta phone them to arrange for delivery then make a review appointment (hopefully over the phone) to see how I'm getting on with all of them.  It's a phone call that'll take all of a minute then that's it for another few months then.


I've taken my pills for tonight though, so I'm gonna head off to beddy-byes now.


See you all in the morning.


Nite nite orl.

Today's (29th September 2023) only meal photo

Today's only meal was hotter than last time this carer heated up the baked beans for me... last time they were room temperature and this time they were barely tepid, so that's an improvement!


I timed exactly how long she was supporting me for today and she was actually (barely) cooking for 4 minutes and left after 20 even though I pay for 30 minutes of care twice a day, but it's an improvement on this morning when my carer gave me literally 30 seconds of support when she asked if I needed any more help as I put my foot into my boot and struggled to stand up (she was more interested in using her phone with her back to me for the other 19 minutes 🤷) so I'll be paying for an hour of support today but actually received less than 5 minutes, same as most days, but I can't tell anyone unless they don't turn up at all "otherwise you'll lose all the carers altogether, unfortunately" according to one of the professionals a while ago who has been supporting me.


I also can't put the heating on this afternoon because my carer used the same amount of electricity charging up her phone instead at the same time as using WhatsApp to talk to someone while the beans were heating up.


Serious question: is it dangerous to use bowls and spoons that have been washed up using liquid hand soap rather than washing up liquid please?  I only ask because that's what I spotted my carer using today and she said she'd used the same one last time she came over.  Other than the taste difference, is it unhealthy to use things that have been washed up with the wrong kind of liquid soap please?

Mornin' all

I realised after I'd shut everything down last night that my phone was completely out of juice, so I let it charge to about 20% while I went for my last wee of the day then realised that my FitBit was down to 65% juice too 🤯  It was too late to do anything about it so I really hoped that there would be enough juice left in it to record my sleep.


I woke up this morning, put my glasses on and checked my FitBit.  It was still working but I wouldn't know if it had recorded my sleep until I came down here and checked my phone.


Which I've just done.


And it has.


So it still works overnight when it's only got 65% juice, so that's a relief.


My phone and FitBit are charging up now and I've taken my morning pills, so I'm all dosed up until lunchtime now.


Tasks for today are to sort out my domain name email addresses and upload the sites to the appropriate pages on the new package.


The daily virus scan found an advanced issue which it's now resolving, thankfully, but that's the reason that I do so many scans!


This blog post is waaay too long, so I'm gonna publish it and make a start on putting up the first of the sites in its new home.


Thursday 28 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I'm definitely more productive after 4pm lol


I've got one part ready to upload and one more site to upload, then I can go head on with the second site and sorting out the rest of the email addresses, then I can test out the product so far of the gift I started to create... I'm about 80% sure that I've got the basics sorted, it's just being able to test out the live version before it goes live is all.  When I've got all that sorted, I can work on a heartbreaking site that'll involve Steve and a great deal of grief.


For tonight though, I've taken my pills so it's time for me to head upstairs.


Nite nite orl.

Today's (28th September 2023) only meal (lunch) photo

Today's lunch was made entirely by me 'cos my carer was more interested in putting away the things from my disastrous cake-making attempt yesterday lol


A tin (ie 2 servings) of spaghetti strands was my lunch today and it made a pleasant change from the baked beans that I had for the last 5 days lol


Here's today's only meal photo:

Mornin' all

Had a few techie issues this morning but I'm hoping they're all resolved now and that the monthly virus scan goes at it's normal speed instead of being sllllooowww because of having to shut down with the power button instead of normally.


I've had my glass of water and taken my morning pills so I'm all set until lunchtime now 'cos I won't even be able to have the orange juice this morning 'cos there are only 3 bottles left which have gotta last me until Wednesday, so I'm having one tomorrow, one on Sunday and the last one on Tuesday.


Time to put my to-do list up for today now me-thinks and I bet my carer will turn up mid-way through putting it together lol


BBIAB (hopefully lol)

 

Wednesday 27 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I know it's an hour early, but my body is begging for such an early night after my disastrous attempt at making that fridge cake a couple of hours ago, so I've popped my pills and I'm heading straight up to bed to try and recover as much as possible before it all starts again tomorrow morning.

Just my luck that...

...I can't get Spotify to work, just when I needed a dose of Take That to lift my mood and relax me!  Even Heart keeps cutting out on me, so maybe it's a sign that I've done too much this afternoon?


It's official...

...I've given up on the cake because the "mix until smooth and creamy" bit of the recipe obviously needed an electric mixer 'cos after over an hour of mixing it by hand, I was still no closer to getting it like that so I've officially given up, binned it and wasted sooo much money.


Not a happy bunny right now and I'm shaking like a leaf, in a great deal of pain, my mood is through the floor and I'm not safe on my feet any more.


gulp

My first ever attempt at a me-friendly no-bake cake totally alone and I'm already lost lol

Today's (27th September 2023) only meal (lunch) photo

Before I forget to ask, is it safe to eat a tin of baked beans that have barely been introduced to the heat, let alone actually heated up, before being eaten?


I only ask because I timed how long it took my carer to make my lunch today and it was 4 minutes from me getting the tin out of the cupboard to putting the first spoonful into my mouth today and I'm now feeling sick but I'm not sure if that's psychosomatic or because the beans weren't even tepid, let alone cooked!


Here's today's lunch photo:

I've worked out...

...why I was having problems yesterday and it was a PICNIC error as opposed to a DNS problem but I'm waaay out of my depth now so I've emailed the appropriate team and I'm keeping everything crossed that they can fix the error without any problems.


I've gotta re-setup my email accounts and FTP logins but hopefully that's easy enough to do when I've got the issue sorted out for me.  It's been a few years since I last had to do it, but I'm slightly more confident with that than the stuff I'm having problems with.

Mornin' mornin'

I've woken up in an OK kinda mood and taken all of my 4 morning pills and remembered that it's Wednesday, so I've remembered not to open my email programmes and to kick off the weekly virus scan.


I'm sooo cold, so the heater is going on for a little while after my morning carer has been and gone this morning.


I've remembered to have my glass of water first thing this morning and refilled my squash bottle, so I'm all set now, just gotta sort out yesterday's techie issues with my websites and work on a gift for someone that is associated with it.


My morning carer could be here at any time, so I'm gonna publish this now and hopefully get my day's to-do list up before she arrives.


Tuesday 26 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I've earnt an early night, so I've popped my last 3 (because I forgot to take the FA this morning) pills of the day so I'm gonna shut down and head straight to bed methinks.


Can someone remind me to play with the new technology that I bought this afternoon please?  I also need to come up with a gift connected to it too, so that should keep me out of trouble for a while lol


It's getting too dark to see what I'm doing now, so I'm gonna publish this then shut down and head to bed.


Nite nite orl.

Today's only meal (lunch) photo

Welcome to my kitchen again lol


Today's only meal was another bowl of baked beans, mostly made by my carer again today 'cos I needed a wee soon after I'd emptied the can into the pan and put it on the cooker to heat up lol


I'm gonna grab a high-calorie packet of crisps after my groceries and clothes have been delivered this afternoon 'cos I've still got over 1000 calories to consume and that's the only way I can do it unfortunately.

Mornin' all

How's things going for you this morning?


I've already downed my glass of water and morning pills and I'll put the drops in my ear as soon as my morning carer has been and gone then get ready for my groceries to turn up after lunch.


Got at least one delivery arriving today so that I can brush my teeth again after the batteries in my electric toothbrush died yesterday morning.  If the second one turns up as well, then I'll be able to get dressed into something warmer tomorrow 'cos it's a hopefully thick jumper and hopefully thick cardigan.


The daily virus scan has just finished and my computer is still clear, so it's time to crack on with putting today's to-do list together before my morning carer arrives.

Just weighed myself and...

I've lost 1kg in the last 7 days which isn't good, but it's not disastrous 'cos I'm still in the healthy weight range for my height, but not as comfortably as I want any more.  If I lose just 1.45kg then I'll be underweight, which I really don't want to happen, but I haven't got a choice.

Mornin' mornin'

How are you all doing this morning?


I've had a bottle of orange juice for my breakfast and the table was even slidier than ever so I'm definitely not gonna be able to use it for meals or drinks so I'll be going without breakfast every morning and eating my lunch in the kitchen so you'll get to see what my kitchen looks like as well as my living room now lol


How much weight do you reckon I'll have lost when I weigh myself this morning, given that I've missed 4 breakfasts and all my drinks for the last 4 days as well as my lunches either being a bowl of soup or a bowl of baked beans?  It'll be the same again this week - just a tin of baked beans or tinned spaghetti every 24 hours and I won't be having many drinks based on how much my stomach was messed up yesterday morning after attempting it with a drinking chocolate.


I've got this feeling (but I hope I'm wrong) that I won't get a carer this morning, so I'll have to find the number for the caring agency to let them know at 11am and the same at 2.30pm if my lunchtime carer doesn't turn up either.


I forgot to have my glass of water this morning and I definitely won't be doing any laps this week so that I don't lose even more weight than I bet I have already.


Have I already said that I've taken my first pills of the week?  The first virus scan of the week is taking forever for some reason, but not to worry.


Gotta remember to get my head in the books and bring in my food waste container today too 


Time to publish this and make a start on putting up my first to-do list of the week now I reckon.


Sunday 24 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I've had an exhausting day today and my lack of breakfast for the last few days is really playing havoc with my energy levels, so I'm gonna head straight off to beddy-byes tonight.


I'll be back at sparrow's fart tomorrow.

Mornin' all

How are you all doing this morning?


Me?


I'm cold, hungry and thirsty but the virus scan was still clear and I remembered to put Steve's medical notes into a bag yesterday so I've just gotta remember to take it with me today lol


I've taken my morning pills and drunk the glass of water so I'm all set for the day now.


There isn't enough rubbish or recycling to go out this week, so I'll just put the food waste caddy out when I get home instead this week.


My morning carer could turn up at any time so I'm gonna publish this blog post and work on putting today's to-do list up before she arrives.


BFN


Saturday 23 September 2023

Nite nite orl

I've popped my last two pills of the day and my belly's rumbling and my body is feeling weak and in pain so I'm gonna head straight to bed.


I'll see you all briefly in the morning.


Nite nite orl.

  • Give Graze vouchers away to Freeglers

Today's (23rd September 2023) only meal (lunch) photo

After this morning's carer decided to do the washing up, she put the plate that I use for my toast out of my reach to dry and it's still there now, so I won't be able to have breakfast tomorrow either, which means my only meal today and for the next 24 hours is a bowl of baked beans because she brought the bowl in before I could add the cheese and she fiddled with the table so that it's sloped just enough that everything slides so that I can't even drink this afternoon... all I can have is the squash in the bottles that I keep for my pills now until I can get the table level again.  It'll save me money on bread, orange juice and coffee though, as well as getting my liquid levels below 3 litres a day again though, so that's OK lol


Here's today's only meal photo and the last photo of the week:


Must remember to...

...take Steve's medical records with me tomorrow so that Marie can take them to his docs so that they can securely shred them.  Can someone remind me to put them into a bag after my morning carer has been and gone tomorrow please?
