Thank you @Victoria, I feel better now
I walk to work down lanes by fields and at 5am it was very misty and dark , beautiful though but i got a bit scared was like a scene from a thriller and blinking spiders webs about cacooned me along the way, i was waving me torch in front of me at 1 point to avoid walking into them... Come 2pm walk back home what a lovely day, hope you all enjoyed it x.
Dear @Michael Hewett ...if you get a bit lonely again then log on here, there will always be someone to talk too.....and I for one love a good natter!! Love and hugs xx
Thank you @Upsydaisy you are very kind xx I think I had a moment of self pity and the day felt long and empty. I felt better after coming home. It's wonderful what a walk in the fresh air can do for you. That's a lovely painting, did you do it ? I must get my paints and pencils out, I've been neglecting them.
Aww ,glad you feel a tad better now Michael, a good walk can work magic and be very therapeutic . Gosh!!!....how I wish I could say yes, it was done by own fair hands.....but sadly no , I can't claim any credit I'm afraid.
Thank you @Upsydaisy I enjoyed the walk and I've put photos of it on a new thread, take a look if you like.
Oooh I will , have you a link? No worries, I'll hunt you down !!
It's called 'Other gardens and more' and it's in the Members' Gallery section.
@Michael Hewett glad that you feel better now. I dread to think what i would do if hubby passed away, who would pay the bills.
I'm joking, I wouldn't be without him. But he pays everything online these days and I don't know what i would do, a few months ago I sat down with him at the computer and got him to tell me everything but it just doesn't sink in. Got my appointment to have my cataract done on the 7th of October, it's a private hospital but run by the NHS. They asked me if I would share my health records with them for the future,I said yes but I thought after maybe I shouldn't have, but there's nothing special about them.
The sad reality is that we stand a good chance of being without them . So it's very important to know how to do these things,especially at our time of life. Our financial dealings are all online too...and don't get me started on passwords!! Coming from a faraway country as you can imagine hubs has a vast range of words to choose from....most of which I can't even pronounce let alone try to spell !! I am gradually learning how to do things now. Hubs is always on the ball by closely monitoring interest rates too and acts quickly to move our pennies to more buoyant accounts so keeping tabs on that too is a difficult learning process. We are lucky as we have a great private hospital at the top of our lane and they take on a lot of NHS patients. My Mum had both knees replaced there back in 2000 , my Dad had his broken ankle pinned there and more recently in 2018 my sister had both her knees replaced there too. Real luxury at no additional cost.......
I am in the same boat here with computers ... but I have money and we only have normal small monthly bills. We don't owe anyone anything. Pleased you have a date for your eyes.
Glad you've got a date for your cataract @Logan Look on the bright side, you could go first (no offence meant !)
