Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - that was ALL of us in the living room this afternoon. I had to have a nap - Ghengis was cwtched up by my tummy, the babies by my feet and Keith in his chair. I never did find out how the ancient Western film I was watching ended! I'm not surprised Keith fell asleep as he has had a bad night on Monday - awake half the night with his legs going into spasm. Yesterday he could barely drag himself around and it was such a worry. Then the Surgery refused to do a repeat prescription on a slow release dopamine prescribed by the PD Nurse. It would seem this happens EVERY time something new is added. She informs the Surgery by letter and it never gets added on to his list of repeat medications. The PD Nurse has just phoned to say she is faxing a prescription to Boots and we can collect it tomorrow. I think I need to have a word with whoever is the Manager at the Surgery though, as it is very worrying, time consuming and frustrating to have this happen repeatedly.
Today the car went in for its MoT. It failed - the ??? arm to one wheel needs replacing. I had said there was a noise last time it went in, but then we had the replacement air conditioning unit. I was hoping the noise would be sorted by that, but no. It's back in on Friday. She wasn't sure if they would do the other repair which involves the hanger for the spare tyre beneath the car, but I will settle for one wheel not falling off ! so we can use it at the weekend. I've booked tickets for Keith, Pam and I to visit Llwyn Celyn, the lovely Landmark Trust property which is having an Open Day weekend, all decked up for Christmas. We plan to take in an Antiques/Collectables Fair in Crickhowell on the way. Keith's been looking forward to it so it would be a shame to miss out.
Yesterday afternoon I finally got my act together for a Christmas cake - gosh, it was nearly ALL fruit. The Recipe comes from the BBC Good Food pages . There was so much mixture, I had enough left over for a small one in a loaf tin, which Keith can enjoy this week.
This new brushed cotton duvet set arrived today from Dunelm. Keith had requested a 2nd brushed cotton duvet set as he finds the sateen finish ones I have heavy rather than warm. I changed to the autumn weight duvet too, and we are snug as bugs under the Paisley one we already had. This had gone in the wash, ready for the next change in a couple of days.
The obligatory kitten photos. Really must learn how to use the video button on the camera - if I can follow them fast enough, as they hurtle round at warp speed!
