End of May already... Days skipping by like, well, no tomorrow.
Must be a cat in the garden, the blackbirds are going mad...  They sing a lot in my garden, nice.
Mark and i were going to go visit Anglesea Abbey this week but it's been so overcast and gloomy, he wanted to wait for better weather.  i've had a look at the forecast for next week and although i think it could be better, it's still going to be a mixed bunch.  i'll see what he wants to do.  They have a working mill there.  Can't wait.  i'll get to test out my new lightweight scooter, which will be good.
i sometimes wonder why things happen, like this morning early, i woke to pee and the third and little finger of my right hand were numb.  Not unusual in itself as i frequently wake with a numb hand if i've slept awkwardly.  This was different as it was so localised and inspite of rubbing and shaking my hand, simply wouldn't wear off.  Quite disturbing.  It's not the first time i've had circulation problems in my arms and need to squeeze a ball to help get everything going again.  Of course, i couldn't find my usual ball this am and will have to get another....irritating.  Anyway, i got up and had breakfast [still numb], taking my cereal bowl back to bed.  Took all my pills and sat up in bed to read while i squeezed a handful of my dressing-gown.  It didn't get any worse and was slightly better and eventually, my eyes got heavy and i lay down again and went to sleep.  Three hours later i woke and the numbness was much reduced, just a slight suggestion of 'something' left.  It's taken another three hours to be back to normal.  Like i said, irritating.
There's nothing really good about getting old!  Except being able to tell people to go to hell... :D
Have a great weekend!

Mum says getting old sucks and she's right! I hate pins and needles or anything like that. I always panic out of all proportion but I'm a hypochondriac anyways. :) Nowadays I get a lot of cramp...horrendous. They say that's to do with circulation too.

Nothing wrong with being a hypochondriac, you catch symptoms early... :D i'm never sure what causes cramp, but it's definitely to do with - is it blood-flow? to muscles.

Yes, circulation I think. :( Horrendous...I find it's worse if one is cold. You definitely have to look after yourself when older...boring! :)
