Manic Monday… well, maybe not.

June 15th, 2009 No comments

After the exercise I got yesterday at the field, today has been a relaxing day. Up and breakfasted by 10:10am.

I then updated my laptop to Vista SP2. This is hopefully a cure for my laptop occasionally saying that any memory stick that I put into it is “Unrecognized” (Curse those butchers of English). After a while, it sprang back to life again, and on entering Windows, nothing appeared different. I can only hope that a lot of things were done under the bonnet. However, I need to keep using my memory sticks to check that it has cured the problem. I gave it a try out by skyping Ma Yan, and nothing untoward happened, so fingers crossed.

A Day at the Field

June 14th, 2009 1 comment

A lazy morning, with me getting up lateish, and getting down for breakfast at 10:00am. I had a couple of weetabix, a glass of milk, and a banana and strawberry smoothie. I skyped Ma Yan, and at 10:55am Dad went off to take Gina and Danny to Birmingham Airport for their week long break to Tunisia.

Weekend TV Fun

June 13th, 2009 1 comment

As I was in the bathroom this morning, the TV I ordered for Mum and Dad arrived. It is a Toshiba 26AV615DB. I ordered it as when I put the TV on for the GP last Sunday, it was flickering. Dad said that it always did that, and sometimes changing the channel worked. It didn’t.

Fantastic Friday (possibly).

June 12th, 2009 No comments

Up this morning for the usual Weetabix and milk. My plan was to sort all the papers that were at the apartment and also some that Tracey had brought over. I actually managed to get it all sorted whilst skyping as well!

Crawling towards the weekend

June 11th, 2009 No comments

A very un-productive day. I was up at 9:00am, and had breakfast. Mum was going out today, haircut first and then shopping with Yvonne in Banbury. Dad was going to the field to put the roof on the tractor garage with Terry. The tin man had dropped off the roofing materials on Tuesday, so everything is all ready to go.

All I have done is eat my lunch, which was in a cool bag on the table for me. I skyped Ma Yan, and as she was doing some exercises, I thought I would do some as well. Just moving my leg around and generally moving about. She then went for a run around the complex.

Children’s Day Part 2

June 1st, 2009 No comments

Bob arrived at 10am for a visit.  Whilst he was here, the surgeon assistant arrived to change my dressings.  Bob and I chatted with him, and he said that I need to come back here 4 weeks after the surgery for an X-Ray.  This is to see how the bone is healing.

I told him that I was going to be in England when then was, and he looked thoughtfully at me and said, “I think they can take X-Rays in England.”  I was very relieved to hear that!  He also confirmed about taking the stitches out on Wednesay.

Bob was saying that he was going to the Shangri La hotel for Sunday brunch this coming weekend, as it had been so good on a previous occasion.  Prawns as big as your hand, was one of the comments he made.

I zimmered about after lunch, and sat in the chair reading “Sigh for a Merlin” by Alex Henshaw, about his role during the war of being a Spitfire test pilot.  I have only just started it, but so far, so good.

I have skyped Hugh, Gina, Mum and Dad today, so everyone is fully up to date with all that is happening.  Tonight, I shall just relax and read some more, and maybe watch some tv online.

Malc Turns Up

Malc has just left after a quick visit.  I was Skyping Mum and Dad when he arrived, so I stopped the call with them.  He is off to see how drunk DT is now.
