Hello Hanna, Grandy & all fur babies everywhere.
I was attempting a post earlier, but my internet browser suddenly closed
Grandy, you,& everyone is most welcome to drop in anytime. 😻 I'll be around for Xmas & New Year, & the days either side & in between.
I go for the Pre-Op Clinic Tuesday 21, &
then January 4 I have to go for the Sentinel Node Localisation Scans & I
was called last week & told I would have my surgery January 4, but haven’t
yet received a letter to confirm this.
left Xmas/NewYear plans loose, not knowing what was going to happen. I still
have some of my infrequently purchased foods to have, music, tele, & I
bought some new clothes recently. Big dressing gown, expensive shirts &
trousers - those can be my Xmas prezzies for me this year. But I still want to
buy the new Australian birdsong album.
& I want to find the ABC's community choir song for this year, written by Katie Noonan. What I saw the other morning, it's bound to put a lump in my throat & bring happy tears to my eyes. So, be warned if you go looking for it.
Although my voice is not nearly as good as once was, I still enjoy singing, & would have liked to go somewhere & sing Xmas songs with a crowd. I find that activity brings the individual audience members together like nothing else does. Seems to do that for footy crowds too.
I’m still figuring out what I’ll take with me
to hospital, how to pack it, & not be frantic in the couple days prior to
My neighbour & I have so little actually in common. He genuinely hasn't recognised me from when we worked for the same organisation. I don't want to remind him, not because of anything he did, but because of the way I was treated by someone else, & the people I ought to be able to turn to didn't understand & help when I needed it. Finally, I simply had to leave. This neighbour used to drive their truck, drinking while at work too.
Following from there, he had a bad car accident. Now he's forgotten so much, it seems he recalls nothing beyond a few people he mentions from time to time. He said he was diagnosed with alcoholic psychosis. & he has diabetes. No close family, either. He recieved a pay out, & blew it all away.
So, I do think he's lonely, but can't motivate himself to get out & meet people. I have tried to help, but, no.
Gabble on, like talking over the back fence. I like it😸& you, too, take care ❤️Grandy, ❤️Hanna, ❤️Doolhof, ❤️Mum Chris, ❤️Croix, ❤️EVERYONE!❤️
