Nell is not feeling well, she was in Morrisons on Friday and had to drop everything a grab a taxi back home.

We think it is the kidney stones playing, very painful but there is not much that can be done but wait for them to settle down, keep warm and keep the fluids going.

I love weeding - I find it very theraputic! Sadly we don't have a garden - but I get to help Nigel sometimes with his gardening business.
Quite often, I am on the tip run! Not so glamorous!
Glad Nell feeling better.

Nell is bedded down again, I think that she has been pushing herself too hard and trying to get things sorted out too fast - she must listen to her body, especially with everything she has.

But then who am I to talk, am pushing myself hard to get things done and hurting myself into the bargain.

Nell is seeing our doctor on 30th so maybe we can setup the necessary backups and hospital appointments and consultants, though I do feel as though I have both hands tied behind my back - I want to do something, anything, but there is nothing that I can do, except to wait.

See update for the real world.

Unreal world update:

19 crocs waiting to be made and I have to have them all done before December 5th St Nicholas Day, which is the day that I do Present Giving on; people are offering to pay for them - wierd!

Oddment is waiting for Nell to return because his new skin is sitting in a bag - I can't feel the bobbins and bits and pieces on the sewing machines and need to have someone doing the fiddly stuff for me.

Oddenstein is still 5 going on 500 and is a conniving crocodile.

Moment is still residing on the moon, though there appear to be bits of the moon missing, presumably where the Americans have been bombing the surface in their search for water - they should have asked Moment, he's got a huge undermoon lake of the stuff.

Oddenstein: "Actually there are loads of photos of me on FaceBook, there is one of Oddment - how did you manage to slither into one of my photos?"

It is Remembrance Tide and with this comes the great sadness that men and women are still dying, in support of our country, for wars started by politicians who serve only themselves.

Immaterial of whether or not we should be in Afghanistan our duty is to support those who have no choice but to go where they are sent.

The Motto that I have lived by, is the one that my family has lived by for hundreds of years, 'Service before Self'; this is also the Motto of The Royal British Legion.

In all the world, volunteers form about one third of the population; the second third are those who never volunteer for anything and the third third is made up of those who only serve themselves and have no interest in others.

Of those who volunteer to serve their country and their communities in peacetime, perhaps a tenth will join the Armed Services, take the Oath of Attestation or receive a Commission, sign their name on the dotted line in the full knowledge that doing so can come with a high price for joining such an exclusive club.

Yet, we each have done so, we have taken our chances and we carry the group memories for our particular time in the forces, I would like to see those verbal histories written down so that the important memories are not lost and the names on our war memorials have substance and background.

It is the 12th and another time of reminiscience (?) is over, yet we each go forward with a sadness or happiness and a piece of a person lodged in our minds.

Perhaps they are a relative or friend or acquaintance and still alive, or they may be dead, no matter, it matters only that their lives are celebrated and remembered.

Mooooove?

I've only just got my swamp sorted out and you want me to get ready to move again - this is ridiculous - where's Bert?

Where's my multi-barrelled elephant gun?

Send Bert to them with a ....!

We have learned just after Christmas 2009 that our landlord intends to sell the bungalow out from under us.

We took the bungalow purely on the understanding that it was a long let and that the landlord was aware that we are both severely disabled.

The landlord was looking for a pair of gardeners, so we thought everythin was OK.

It is not, I am taking legal advice as to whether or not we can sue the landlord and letting agent for gross misrepresentation.

Nell is very ill and the stress is not doing her any good; she was in hospital for a while with a minor heart attack, not that anything is minor for Nell.

She has another appointment with the vascular surgeon for the aortal arch aneurysm next week and she is seeing an oncology surgeon the week after for the kidney stones and sorting out the stoma and intestinal tubes.

That leaves an hiatus hernia and the osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, which is very severe, and a damaged rotator cuff on her right shoulder.

Frankly, we could do without the problems with the landlord currently, but - c'est la vie!
