i better get a bit of a blog done eh! i am off to Blighty tomorrow and not sure if i can have internet access until i get to Mom's on Monday, i will be twittering, so that will be there on my blog i believe down on the lower right hand side...
anyway, where have i been? since tuesday? where did the week go? ok, i had enough of these fatigue causing meds and had the last one wednesday evening, so last night wasn't as tired as usual when i went to bed, tired normal that is for me, but not completely whacked out and semi conscious! well if my Mom can go rebel on hers i forsure can do the same on mine, although strictly speaking maybe Mom should still be taking hers! but she now sounds so much better, awake, positive, she made it to the prof. at the Mount Vernon yesterday without any problems, she just sounds so well now... even though she is not.
i went down town..., it must have been wednesday, Franco was out and i made it down, i had to get some labels for Christmas cards, rather than take the whole address book, which is heavy and big! the main road into town, the high street is being paved also like the rest of this area and the road closed signs were up, in three places, not enough though, people were driving round them, i still cannot get my head around the fact that people here do not take any notice of road closed signs, its like they don't think its for them??? so people had to reverse (help!) all the way back up the street, and try another route, most of which also have road works on, well, why not do it all at the same time i say!!!! problem with the reversing here... most of them were ending up on the paths, no kerbs, just a smooth kerb to allow for parking, so people were over steering right, left and right again! like something from a Harry Hill video... there's a thought now, i missed that one didn't i!
i stopped with friends outsider a bar and had coffee, then on my way stopped at a friends home for a tea! i think i better cut down a bit on my coffee, but how much is too much? i only have about 4 or 5 a day, and when my BP was low, which was forever till now, i have had 10 or more and been fine? no comprendo mis amigos!
Thursday Franco and i went down to Calahonda, checked out Maria's place, everything fine, quiet, not many holiday makers out, yesterday we had a bit of rain too, not much only a sprinkling, and friends we were meeting up with had on t shirts and shorts! Brrrrr! we went to Los Olivos for a tapa and coffee(!) saw a mate that used to live here in Alhaurín in there which was great and arranged to meet up when i am back in a couple of weeks.
then a guy came in we used to live near, and a few others! was like coming home...
had a good day... in the evening we had to go to Vodafone! we were in there only an hour and half! was light when we entered and dark when we left! lots of people out and about in the evenings here in town, but a mist was over and for the first time this winter you could really feel the dampness in the air...
but today! hot sunshine again, hot in the sun anyhows, cooler in the shade! when Pip and i were out bright( er no dark still!) but early we met up with a couple of neighbours! one mi amiga who has left Spain and now lives back in England.. she is only over for a few days, and another who was out having an early morning ciggie!!!
was strange meeting in the dark like that! but later after a quick trip to town i visited with the friends she is staying with and we went out, a visit to the cemetery and then a bar for coffee (!) and tapas... good to see her again, i miss her being round the corner...
today i notice i am not taking the tablets, sorry doc! although when the alarm went off i felt tired, it was just normal Fibro tired, not drug induced, and its nearly 4pm now, not had to nap yet or put my feet up...although having been out a while i probably should do, especially as we have to go out again later!
washing on the line, hope it dries, i am wearing some of it tomorrow! case packed with clothes to keep me warm, it feels cooler here, for us, but mi amiga felt hot! i guess she has got used to English weather already!
ok amigos, probably lots more to say, i usually do! but have things to do, and hands tired... Franco will be moaning at me, so hasta luego and off to England....
