No Rain Today!

The first day for ages we havn't had rain, and we actually saw the sun and blue sky!
So we went out for a walk!

It was bitterley cold, but very enjoyable!

Then I thought a quick trot down the garden and round the greenhouses would be in order, ready?
My baby Tetrapanex Rex has been plodding along slowly but surely in the greenhouse.

The stupid gingers have not died back as I expected they would?

The right side of the big greenhouse

The left

and the large brug in the middle

the rest of the garden is soaking wet, oh! did I tell you we think we solved the lack of eggs problem?

Rats!!!!! Ugh horrible things, they had made a nest at the bottom of a compost right opposite the chickens and it was full of egg shells!!!!!
They have now been dealt with!!!

Mud, mud, glorious mud!

I just thought I would show you the mess the electicity company made of our road.

Because they had their lorries parked at varying places down the road all the other traffic had to go around them. This made tractors horseboxes etc etc cut huge grooves into our verges.

So what, you may think, well, when this drys out and because there will be no grass left people consider this the road, so the road widens and the verge gets smaller. Which is fairly obvious in the picture just above.You can see where the new grooves have been cut and how hard a flat it is by the red car (mine). When we first moved here we could park with the front door in line with the telegraph pole, now as you see we can't!!!

A few wet days and the cats go stir crazy and start being very mischievious!

But hopefully with lighter mornings and eventually warmer days spring is just around the corner, well the crocus think it is!

Now what do you think I have planned for this?

If it works I will show you!

I'm All Alone!

I have a day to myself, everyone is out! Its the first time on my own since well before Christmas. I thought I would be lost but to be honest its been quite nice. I did a ton of housework, now don't fall over in shock, I know 'housework' and 'me' are two words that don't go together. But it was nice to clear, dust, hoover, wipe, bleach and generally find the floor, without it being covered again 10 mins later.
I have stopped now, well can't spoil to much of a good thing!!!!!
I intend to catch up with everyone here, then craft, or buy seeds or veg and watch a movie or whatever.
But first, I shall decorate the blog!
Oh by the way I still have the Red car as the garage haven't been able to get a door yet and will let us know as soon as they have one.

Know Me Inside and Out!

I saw both specialists last week, one for my rear end which sadly after all the ops is still itchy!! She is a dermatologist and I now have pills and creams and washing stuff to using for 28 days, to see if we can break the cycle!! Hhmmm! not sure!

Then I saw the gynacologist, if you recall the 'bum' man said after all his poking prodding and varying ops, that the pain I was getting was nothing to do with the bowel! After the laparoscopy he believed it was my ovaries, now if your squeamish I suggest you go no further as I am going to post the pics that they took whilst inside my body!!! I find them quite fascinating and you can truely answer that you know me inside and out!!!!!!!!!!

It is has four seperate pics but they are all on one photo. Maybe you can see why the bum man thought the ovaries ought to go. They are the white lumpy looking things!
Anyway the gyni-bloke said he would not necessarily rush in and operate and that he may give me an injection that killed the ovaries for 3 months and see if the pain went, if it does he would then take them out! He then did what all us ladies dread and asked me to assume 'the' position and proceeded to squeeze and squash (well thats what it felt like)my ovaries especially the right one which was exceptionally painful and since then I have been in agony!
So back into hospital on Friday with full bladder for another scan followed by an appointment with him after to find out what is to be done!!!

Some assemblance of order shall return to our household next week as hubby returns to work after his hol, its gone fast hasn't it! I gave up trying to do housework with everyone around, so I shall get back ontop of it tomorrow when K and Hubby drive to Worcester so she can hand in some assignments, drop off library books and pick up some more.
The red car goes in for repairs tomorrow so we will be a one car family for about 4 days!

Well must dash, things to do, I will try and get round your blogs this week.
