Can you believe it nearly the end of January2013, but what a month? We have had snow some have had flooding and I have hibernated.
Parky and I have given in to the cold, no good risking getting the shakes, it’s much better to stay indoors.
I did manage to get to a family celebration for my Mum’s 90th Birthday, 19 of us at the Italian restaurant; it’s the one place you know is child friendly. There were four generations so it was really good to get us all together only number one daughter and husband missing, they are somewhere on the opposite side of the world so a bit too far to come.
Mum is stick thin but still manages a good meal she doesn’t think she has eaten if there is no dessert. I think she enjoyed herself and it was good to get photos for the family album.
Best of all I managed the entire outing without my Mate Parky,
He has been around these last few days but not enough to get a grip, if I can carry on like this I can come to terms with him. CAN I? PERHAPS NOT.
I have decided to work my way through the freezer and the cupboards till I have used up most of my stores; it makes for some interesting concoctions and at some strange times as my eating habits can be very varied.

Nearly a Resolution 2013

Well it’s 2013 and we are half way through the first month. The snow has arrived and as usual in England we talk about little else.
I had an appointment with the Doctor yesterday; when I realised my car had a big slab of frozen snow on the window screen I thought it would be quicker to walk than to hunt about for the scraper. I have been hibernating for a while and it was so nice to get out, I must walk more I have been telling myself that for ages, I must take notice of my good advice.
I shall be pleased when my supply of chocolate from Christmas has gone I really must stop having it for breakfast; it is so easy to snack on the wrong things. That’s another bit of advice from me to me that doesn’t get through.
I am on track with my change of pills but seem to have the side effect of blotchy legs, can’t win at everything can you? I am not sure if the Stalevo has some of the drawback of Requip, I’m not spending like I did or am I perhaps I am on different things.
The one thing I can say is that I don’t want a relationship; I no longer need a lover in my life. I know how difficult I have been and I also know that I am not prepared to inflict this on anyone else.
I have stuck my head in the sand for too long, I have used Parky as a defence so role on 2013 this lady is about to turn and who knows  take her own advice. Well maybe when my chocolate runs out.
