Friday… wet and gloomy!

The weather that is, not me! I have just realised (looking at the large number of comments) that it is nearly ten days since I last posted – fresh from the check up! I have continued to be busy at work, and weekends have been taken up with those jobs that tend to accumulate while away from home (either working or on holiday

I had another check up at Guy’s earlier this week, where GvHd is causing a minor specific problem, but it seems as if a topical immuno-suppressant should sort it out, with a review in a month’s time. However, while I was buying my lunch in M&S on Wednesday, I bumped into Dr Kazmi, so although I hadn’t seen him at the haematology check up, we had a quick chat as we walked back to Guy’s.

Autumn seems well and truly upon us, the mornings are dark when I get up, and the heating in both my flat and at home has been switched on, and I suppose it is only two weeks until the clocks go back on Sunday 25th! Ah well, lighter mornings, darker evenings!

So that is pretty much it for the moment. Just looked at the clock and decided that it is time to pack up for the drive home!

Onwards and upwards!

    Well…. the evenings are drawing in so Richard and I were just talking about christmas lists, and then it sort of snowballed!

    Glad to hear that things are going well

    Is a Christmas list the effect on standing upright through drink at the Christmas bash?

    Although lots of us have wood burners we haven’t had those lovely Winter or Autumn evenings when the smell of burning wood fills the evening air, off for a sniff. Or two

    I think you might be right Richard (hic) Damn! started too early again….

    Hellooooo……. it’s gone very quiet, has everyone gone into hibernation, or is there a party going on that I’ve not been invited to?

    Shshhsh . Peter is having a nap. Or he got lost on the drive home………or………..OK there is a party……..sorry just pop along with a bottle we’ll be pleased to entertain you with tales of daring do and other such fibs 🙂

    C Ya soon

    Party? Where? Pass the Winter Pimms! (Going to be needed after the clocks go back – Season of mists and open fires!)

    Live ammunition?

  8. Gillian on 14 Oct 2009 at 20:28 #

    don’t throw it on the fire!!

    Bought provisions, and snacks 😀

    if we have an open fire we can toast things…

  9. Richard on 14 Oct 2009 at 23:26 #

    Sounds a little like school Gillian, or Red Rump as you will be known.

    Toast can be fun too but if we have logs just have to mind the sparks. A wheelbarrow helps.

    Right, got marshmallows and crumpets – ideal with hot chocolate. I think a wheelbarrow full might be a bit excessive though….

    Hot chocolate, is that a drink, spread for the crumpets or a skin lotion?

    Wheelbarrows make good Butler’s Chairs to keep the draught off your back, the heat from the fire does make a mess of the chocolate lotion though 🙂

    Live ammunition – now that would be good for fireworks night – and there is the excuse for a party! – And the novel use for a wheel barrow. (Useful to be wheeled back in should too much Winter Pimms be imbibed!)

    We had on interesting night next door, who loves fireworks, being an engineer with a machine shop in his factory we were burning magnesium swarf as a substitute until it ran out. Being disappointed another neighbour fetched some tracer. When that ran out as he had a boat we went onto maroons until we ran out again so had to go to bed.

    Interestingly no one complained:)

    Is that where you light the biscuit papers and the float up into the air… how did you see those in the dark 😉

    So…… do you have a hotline through to the local fire station due to the homemade fireworks??? And where can I buy all this stuff if you do 😉

    Gillian! You only want us for the firemen.

    Interestingly things that glow in the dark are relatively easy to see at night. 🙂
    We have some new neighbours now just along the road who do not understand, although two of the biggest house which are near neighbours have just been sold (what recession!! I think I heard someone say ‘bloody bankers’ at least that is what it sounded like)

    Peter should be at home now stimulating his appetite as soon it will be time for fireworks, outdoor food and hot drinks. Go for the calories Peter.

    I wonder if I can get a fireman’s uniform on eBay………
