  • Good morning lovely ladies I'm back at work again, but going back to hospital on Monday. Hopefully I will get my drain removed and may actually start feeling normal once more. I'm desperate to feel well enough to fly over to Germany to see my daughter and granddaughter. Miss them so much and thank goodness for Facetime! I…
  • Hello my friends I hope you are all doing as well as you possibly can. After being re-admitted to hospital last week to have a drain fitted, I am now back at work! Feeling extraordinarily out of sync, which is always the way when I return to work after being ill. To be honest, I could have used a bit more time off and…
  • Hello lovelies I am sleeping so much! I think it's a mix of not feeling well and the meds I'm on - I'm just not used to spending this much time asleep. I desperately want to shake myself and be back to normal. It will happen, I just have to find some patience. Hope you are all doing well. Sorry I'm not replying to…
  • Hello ladies. I'm hoping that today will be a better day. I am now on antibiotics for a kidney infection and an infection in my navel wound. Was really sick yesterday and could barely lift myself out of bed. Today I'm going to spend the day resting, reading and maybe doing a little gentle sewing. My poor house gym will…
  • Good morning ladies I had a horrible night last night with pain and sickness but it is still not as bad as when I was having gallbladder attacks. I suppose it is just a case of allowing time to heal from the surgery. I'm so impatient and not good at resting. Will pop in again later my friends. Love to all Amanda x
  • Hello ladies Well, I haven't posted for a while but I have finally had my gallbladder removed and I'm now home from hospital. Very sore and tired but looking forward to no more of the horrendous attacks that I was having. I hope you are all doing well and I will try to pop in again in the next couple of days. Love to all…
  • Hi my lovely ladies I know I have been absent lately. This has been a combination of things – the first being that I haven’t been able to get onto the forums via my iPhone. Today I’m using the pc at work. Secondly, I have been super busy with work and family. Thirdly (and this is the main reason if I’m perfectly honest)…
  • Good morning my lovelies. It's grey and damp in London town. Not a good day for a tube strike! I did manage to get a train part of the way, but still had to walk for about an hour. Not looking forward to going home. Need to go straight from home to my DD#1 house as she lives closer to Heathrow airport - ready for our…
  • Watched this earlier - made me smile! x https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMW-dM-BDu0
  • Good morning ladies Grey and decidedly damp in London town today. I got saturated on the way to work. My new shoes are all squelchy, good job I keep some spares at the gallery. My appetite has now left me completely. I'm trying to eat a little as often as I can, but seriously struggling. DH is getting concerned and keeps…
  • Hello ladies A true spring day in London today. This time next week we will be in May. Madness! Mimi, it really is good to see you back. You have been missed. I am trying to feel youthful today. In reality I think I'm about 106 years old, gallbladder, back and knees are all dragging me down. I'm going to put a brave face…
  • Hello again my friends I've just spoken to the hospital and they are going to try to squeeze me in to have my gallbladder removed on a Saturday towards the end of May. Not ideal, but at least I feel that I'm getting closer to a date. My weight has fallen again, which is getting to be a problem. I never thought I'd say the…
  • Good morning my beauties This is a drive by post today as I'm rushing around like a headless chicken. Love to all! Amanda x
  • Good afternoon ladies Been so busy today! I'm not firing on all cylinders as I only got about an hour sleep. My gallbladder was complaining loudly. I've decided that I am going to call the hospital on Tuesday (after the bank holiday) and really get on to them about giving me a date to have the blessed thing removed. It's…
  • Good morning ladies Blue skies here in London and my feet are barely touching the ground today as I'm that busy. Just wanted to wish everyone peace and contentment. Love to all. Amanda x
  • Ok, I just noticed that this will be my one thousandth post - so here it is! “Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.” xx
  • Good morning ladies Blue skies over London town today. Gorgeous. Not warm yet though. I intend to have an extra mile walk home from work each night this week. This means that I will walk to a further tube station. It has the added advantage of walking through St James's Park, which is lovely right now. Yesterday was my one…
  • Good morning ladies I'm up and at work. That's about as good as it's going to get today! Just needed to add a bit about my own mum. She died nine years ago next month and I miss her all the time. We didn't have a good relationship when I was growing up. She was a complex women who needed everything to be centred around…
  • X marks the spot for later Amanda x
  • Good morning my lovelies I'm going to call today 'no spinach Friday'. I'm not sure what I'm going to eat instead as I didn't bring any lunch to work. Will have to be extremely gentle with myself as I was up all night TMI ALERT - throwing up with a full blown gallbladder attack. Still have a slight fever but I'm certain it…
  • Good morning ladies. We have beautiful blue skies today in London. The odd fluffy cloud, but mainly a blue ceiling above us. I am definitely feeling the strain of working a six day week at present. I'm off this Sunday and intend to spend the day catching up on housework and cooking etc. To be honest, I'd rather just…
  • Hi Ladies Barbie - Poor Jake! Hope he's on the mend. Whipped cottage cheese is yummy. I whizz my own in the blender and add all sorts of things to it. My favourite is just spreading it on sticks of celery. Delicious. Busy, busy, busy day today. Love to all. Amanda x
  • Hello my lovelies Blue skies here in London today. Plus, I carried 2 2litre bottles of water to work this morning without them emptying into my bag. Hurrah! Happy belated birthday to Jane. CityJane - I too am deeply saddened by the death of Peaches Geldof. Two babies under the age of two - how awful for them. I am now…
  • I just have to tell you ladies, after my bottle of water flooding all over my bag this morning, I really didn't think I was going to love today. However, I have to tell you that everyone I've met today has just been so lovely! That's my positive spin on the day. (Plus, only 35 minutes left until I should be able to go…
  • Hello ladies Monday. Again?? Every day I take two one litre bottles of water to work in my bag (I do keep water at work too, but this is to make sure I drink my minimum requirement). This morning one of the bottles managed to empty itself into my bag. Can you imagine the mess! Thank goodness my mobile phone and laptop…
  • Hello ladies Please may I go back to bed now? Ok, that's not possible as I'm at work. Still sounds like a wonderful idea though! Have a grand day my friends. Love to all. Amanda x
  • Hi ladies Thanks for suggestions on protein powder. I don't tolerate soy very well, so tend to avoid it. Have now decided to forget the protein powder. Michelle, I don't go near artificial sweetener if I can help it. My breakfast this morning was spinach and poached egg with a dash of marmite. Was tasty, but not sure I…
  • Good morning ladies I am desperately trying to find a new protein shake for my mornings. I've tried just about everything so far and the only one I could stomach is no longer available. Grr. As a vegetarian I am very aware that I don't get enough protein - especially as I have to be careful with my gallbladder. I used to…
