I've been on the waiting list for 6 months to have a varicose vein removed after thrombosis & finally had it done today,
will probably take a few weeks of wearing pressure bandages now, glad it's finally done with. :tup:

Still, it could be worse...

It could be Christmas!

True, that. I've never been a big Christmasser, as it were. I've never understood why the people who celebrate Christmas the most vehemently are atheists, either.

Not his children about for years. Pseudo daughter comes, sometimes. That's quite fun. :)

Sounds like an enjoyable time.  :D

We just see brother in law & wife on Boxing Day usually, not much family on my side close by.

Apart from Jane's daughter, there's no family, for me. Jane's brother nips in, sometimes, but he's miles away. Not the long distances that you have, down there, though.

I assume that you'd fly that, or take a train. Depends on if you have to go through the outback, I guess. Thst'd be phun.

Sod that! I thought driving down to the south of France was a big enough pain. Great weather, though!

I seem to be behind the times............as usual, but am glad to see that the operation you have been waiting for has finally turned up to fix the problem.  :flowers:
Yep, I find Christmas time.....fast approaching...again........to be a bit of a nuisance now, especially as I have to be nice and cheerful to everyone, and then I can take to my bed to recover, with the help of some medicinal Brandy...
But, when we had the 4 kids (girl, boy, boy, girl, then a visit to the 'Vet' to put a stop to them) when they were younger, it was fun, and Christmas Eve was best, with wrapping up the kids toys (and playing with the 2 boys toys first, to make sure they work of course), and then waiting sometimes into the early hours for them to finally get to sleep, so that I could do the Santa bit, to put some pressies in the pillow cases at the bottom of there beds.
Only to be woken up a few hours later for them to come and shows us what they had......... ;D
Christmas time was fun back then, but now older and more crotchety, and just the two of us, times have changed.

I still think I am about 20 years old, and then after digging a bit of a hole and cementing in the stand to plant the new whirly-gig rotary washing line into the ground this afternoon..........I found I wasn't... :blush:
It will probably fall over when lots of wet washing is slung on it to dry in a day or so.............*sigh.

I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

Thanks Baron:D

The chiropractor made an adjustment last week & I have sciatica pretty bad now & the leg is badly affected, but I've resisted using a walking stick.  ;)

Hope your clothes line stands up to the job, we've had a 'Hills Hoist' rotary clothes line for 50 years that Tony installed in his younger days.

When we were living with our grandparents about four years old grandad had painted up a couple of dolls prams & when was putting them in our bedroom my sister woke up
& he told her to go back to sleep.  :D

Yep, when we moved in to this house some 3 years ago, the whirly-gig was already in the back garden.
At the end of last year it was a bit rusty and knackered, with a couple of broken joints, and probably my fault because I hardly took it out of the ground to fold and put away in the shed.........real story, I couldn't get the damn thing out of the post tube buried in the ground, as it was sorted of rusted in, so being lazy, I just left it there in all weathers.
So the wife bought a new one last year, and eventually due to threats and nagging, I managed to remove the old one, and decided I wanted to plant it somewhere else in the garden, without asking permission!
I live a dangerous life y'know..... ;D
Since I planted it late afternoon yesterday, I will try out a washing machine load of washing tomorrow, as I thought it best to leave it until then, to make sure the cement was fully set.
I am supposed to give it 24-48hrs before using it, but since it is a sort of small lump of cement, including any small bits of gravel I find in and around the garden, I doubt it needs 48 hours.........so fingers crossed for tomorrow.

If things all go wrong and somehow it falls over, then I think I will go and seek sanctuary in a 'home for the bewildered' somewhere safe from her reach.... :o

Sounds like you've made a good effort to try to please her, hope it holds up to a load of washing, fingers crossed.

Ours is a full permanent item made of galvanised iron, I just have to oil the mecanism each year; last time I did it lots of ants came running out the hole,
they'd been nesting in there.  !!

 ;D on the ants!.
I was going to try out some washing on it today, but she hadn't done any.....
According to the weather, tomorrow is ok, but Friday seems to be a day of thunder storms and rain, but should cheer up again on Sunday onwards.
I will just look out the window as usual to see what the weather is..

This new whirly thingy, is better quality of the older one, stronger and seems to have a brushed aluminium center pole with much stronger arms and hinges etc.
Plus planted into a plastic tube into the cement, should be easier to pull it out of, because the old one had a steel tube and aluminium pole which sort of glued themselves together.

Hope you are recovering ok from the op.   :flowers:

Yes that seems a better combination with the plastic & aluminium, when I had my wrought iron gate painted the bolt became harder to move, had to get the mallet onto it.

I've been waiting for a good washing day here also, looks like the weekend will be fine.

Just been to the chiropractor again, hope it does some good this time.  ;)

Well... the bad news is that it looks like Jane has lung cancer.

She's not well enough to have a biopsy, but the radiologist's gonna have a look, to see if he thinks he can do anything.

I might, as a result, be a bit odd(er).
