Poor hubby

Had his knee replaced tow weeks ago after having it cancelled 3 times.
 He had been this far before!

After the op same day. He chose to have an epidural so that he was awake during the op - which should mean a faster and less painful recovery.
He was full of Morphine here.

Allowed to go home after 1 day - although we had to wait a few hours to be discharged and it was almost 11pm by the time we finally got home.

If you look closely, you can see that he was bleeding on the carpet - I got it out but it kept bleeding the next day, so we ended up in A & E for a few hours.

They took blood to test for infection but the wound was surrounded by blisters . We think he was allergic to the glue in the dressing , so they redressed it before we went home.

Two weeks later - he has had two physio appointments and the dressing removed. 
He has exercises to do three times a day and is walking outside for a few minutes each day ( when its not raining) 

He was having a play with my copic pens here.
We still have a way to go and he is desperate for a bath - we have no shower.

More Physio appointments next week.

Back Soon Soojay x

Holiday Photo Drop

We stayed at Praa Sands in Cornwall for the week of our holiday this year.

We love the beach and the view from the house.

We wont miss the steps to get up to the house!

We went to Paradise park 

Nats did some scrapbooking

Never get tired of this

Lovely house

We stayed in Instow Devon for our second week.

More stunning views.

No steps to get to the house

Lovely balcony

Westward Ho! beach was also stunning and the sea was SO warm!

Not Been on here for a while- two years!! ( not too much happened) 
We did go to Liverpool to see family and hubby changed his job and now works for Waitrose.
These photos are from our Holiday in Marazion , Cornwall this year. 
On the way down we stopped at Bridgwater Premier Inn to break the journey.  

We visited Boscastle and Tintagel on the journey down.

We also stopped at the cider farm - we go there every time we go to Cornwall but where disappointed to find the it now costs £14.99 a head to look around , so we only went to the shop this time.

We went for morning walks along the beach at Marazion - the sand is not as lovely as Praa sands ( just round the corner ) and there is always lots of seaweed on the beach.

Great view though.

Of course we went to Praa Sands a couple of times - my fav place in the UK.

We wandered around Truro and had Pizza for lunch.

The second time we went to Praa sands we bumped into Greg Davies - I feel like a Hobbit!!

one of the best things about the holiday home was the tot tub at the bottom of the garden. It was SO big and we used it every evening - I DO miss it!

Can't go to Cornwall without a trip to Lands End

poor Derek's knee was playing up so he needed his stick.

An evening walk along Penzance Promenade

we left it almost till the last day to go to St Michael's Mount. Dan and Nats didn't want  to go - good job as it now costs &10 a head to get onto the island. ohh well - we took Meg and had a wander around. 


may be back soon - who knows!

Keep Calm and Carry on

 I have lost count of the weeks in lock down - think this is week 7 but might be 8.
This week people were encourage to go back to work if they cannot work from home unless they are shielding. The weather has got warmer over the last couple of days , so i have resumed my walks with Dex. Green is my fav colour.

 We usually walk along Brome avenue and go around the fields using the footpath.

 Two of the four "whirly gigs " in Eye.

 We rarely see anyone else.

 My hair has got long and straggly and the pink is almost gone.

 Phill , dads support worker , brought him some plants to re pot. He left them on the door step.

 A rare pic of Dan in daylight - just to prove he is in fact NOT a vampire!!

I made him re pot them himself and tidy up afterwards. To be fair , he then hoovered Dex's car and washed it .

In other news, Poor Meg has had problems with her tooth, she has a wisdom tooth that is growing the wrong way , pressing on a nerve and has been infected twice.  She was due to have it removed under a general anesthetic at hospital but that got put on hold for now. Being type one diabetic - hospital is nit the best place for her right now. We had to call 111 two weeks ago as she was in pain and refusing to eat, eventually we were able to give her some cocodamol and ibuprofen, this helped. Of course it was the weekend! We called her dentist on the Monday , he said if it was still bad on Weds, to call back and he was prescribe antibiotic. In the mean time she broke up with her 3 month internet BF and was inconsolable. We got the antibiotic and started them last weds. 
Yesterday she said she felt really dizzy and ill and her blood sugars were high - she tested high for key tones so i called the diabetic clinic.   The nurse said to test for key tones and blood every too hours though the night time too. We discussed insulin injections and when to increase. We did that - She was not happy about it and I had to be firm - have you tried to get someone up for a urine test at 3 am ??! Today we are still testing but blood sugars and Key tones are much better , also the BF is back on the scene , so she is much happier - we will see when it gets to 3 or 4 am!! 
thats enough for now - back soon - maybe
