I’ve had toothache for several days; one of the big ones right at the back 🙁 and it’s sending a throbbing pain all up my jaw. Oh, woe is me!! I have a pain-threshold that is about minus fifteen on a scale of one to ten, so I’ve been taking loads of pain-killers resulting in me floating through the week and seeing the world through a haze. Finally, this morning I went along to see the dentist only for her to tell me she couldn’t extract it as it’s infected. 😭😭😭 So it’s a week … Read the rest »
So, I’m starting off 2017 with a HUGE apology for being so absent at the end of last year and the beginning of this one. A very belated
To you all!
The couple of weeks before I left Antigua to spend Christmas and New Year in England just flew by and with the best will in the world I couldn’t find much time to update you all on my activities. Enough to say, I finally published SINGLES AT SEA – Hooray! Hooray! And it’s available on Kindle only at the moment – sorry but it will be out in paperback … Read the rest »
What a brilliant surprise earlier today…… A lovely lady – SB – contacted me after seeing my I Feel GOOD post – all the way from…….Australia!! Isn’t it amazing? I’m sitting in Avocado Cottage, Antigua, West Indies, posting a blog about my wonderful Little Yellow Pills and how much good they’re doing me and she’s reading all about it more than eleven thousand miles away! The wonders of technology never fail to amaze me. And I’m delighted she wants to deal with her oxidative stress and get really well again. Oxidative stress is the cause of more than two hundred … Read the rest »
Before I move onto congratulating my adoptive country on the thirty-fifth anniversary of its independence, I want to apologise to you all as lately I haven’t written my journal as often as I used to. I have had complaints! This, of course, is very flattering; I’m delighted at how many readers I have scattered across the globe that enjoy my jottings. So I’m really sorry if I’ve upset you. And I sincerely apologise. First of all, I don’t know where the time goes. I get up quite early here and yet before I can look round it’s lunchtime and then … Read the rest »
I’m taking advantage of dropping anchor on Singles At Sea (see what I did there?) as the laptop is charging to catch up on my journal. Just to explain that my extension lead had ceased to work and the socket is too far from the table for me to write while the laptop’s plugged in. So here I am in the iPad, giving you a quick look at the last week or so.
It’s butterfly season at the moment. Every day dozens of pretty pale yellow butterflies are all over the garden, until I grab the camera and they disappear! … Read the rest »
I’ve got wheels! Whoopee! After being fairly cut-off due to lack of transport – Five Islands isn’t exactly a back-water but it’s nice to have the convenience of a vehicle at your disposal – I’ve now got the use of a car. My friend R is in UK for a while and has kindly given me use of her car while she’s away.
It is like FREEDOM!!
I went for a little drive yesterday evening. Just because I could!
There’s a problem today, though, in that it won’t start 🙁 It needed a jump yesterday but that’s normal when the … Read the rest »
Last Thursday afternoon I needed to go into St John’s to get a few odds and ends. I walked down the lane and sat on the little wall under the huge tamarind tree to wait for the bus. It was a glorious afternoon, hot and sunny, the sky the brightest of blues with billows of white cloud here and there but the breeze was minimal. So I sat under the tree, fanning myself with my hand to try and cool down, while clutching my new shopping, free bags.
I said he’d do it in four, but it only took Andy Murray three sets to win Wimbledon again. Yay! And what a day it was for British tennis! (Never thought I’d be typing that!!) Not only did Andy win the Men’s Singles, Heather Watson, with dishy Finn Henri Kontinen beside her, won the Mixed Doubles. And, Jordanne Wiley won the Ladies Wheelchair Doubles, with Yui Kamiji of Japan. AND, Gordon Reid won not only the Men’s Wheelchair Singles but the Doubles as well! What an achievement!
