I know no one will care but…….

I just had the most amazing trail run.  2.5 hours across fields, through woodland, hills and tracks.  Dodging mud, ice cracking under foot and breath crisp at -1 Celsius so the views were rolling white fields for miles.  4 foxes, 2 deer, countless sheep and horses.  
 

I feel alive.  
 

Now for a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea. 

Was riding down a lane before Christmas and a red kite swooped down and flew just a few feet in front of me for about thirty seconds before perching on a telegraph pole. Most magical thing I've ever seen.

Not uncommon for fire bugs to join the bushfire service sadly

It seems to happen more often than you'd think.  Apparently they enjoy the excitement of seeing the fires and also want to be a bit of a hero.  🤪  😡

True, yet..........;

 The lighting of fires in Australia is generally related to three common factors, namely:

Men. women and children, whether engaged in the membership of fire services, or otherwise, and most prominent in terms of the "otherwise".

I’m so p-s-d off. Saw my Dr today as I have a re infected chalazion on my eye lid, so will have to have it drained again, not the nicest procedure.  Unless there is a cancellation as it’s urgent, I have it booked in for next Monday mid afternoon.

My daughter and husband are due here, yes of course, next Monday to stay till Friday. I haven’t seen them since last April, so Monday will be a write off, and if it’s like last time, my eye was quite sore for a few days. Fingers crossed there is a cancellation this week.

Can you not call them and tell them you are in agony and could they possibly squeeze you in anywhere.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Hope it's seen to speedily Ramot.  I don't know why GPs can't do those procedures.  All they seem to do now is hand out pills.  Everything now has to be done by a "specialist".

The procedure last time to the best of my knowledge, the infection is underneath my eyelid, that’s why it’s so sore as it’s catching on my eye.

Several local anesthetic  injections around eye 

eye lid peeled back and clamped

infection drained from rear of eyelid, 

sent home with large patch over eye, eye drops and antibiotics for a month

sadly  bit beyond my GP’s expertise 

Good news antibiotic  eye drops working better.

Oh that does sound painful!  Hooray that the antibiotic eye drops are doing the job.

Sounds like you’re on the mend.  Never take chances with eyes…

I was getting in my car when I heard a noise, I looked over and there was a fox ripping up a bin bag to get at a chicken carcass. 

Stunning.

Both her mother and the fiance had drug problems in the past.  Both had been in jail.  The poor grandmother who was bringing her up must be devastated.

I have a grand daughter at almost exactly the same age. I cannot even look at the TV news. There will be therapeutic hugs.
