Life, photos but not the universe

Fresh out of thoughts

Today I spent more than enough time queueing up for blood tests and xrays.  (Not that I blame the hospital staff, or even the system – they’re both drop-in clinics and it looked as if most of Newbury and Thatcham had dropped in today).  As usual it’s my own fault.  I decided to whinge about my back again and got blood tests added to my thyroid tests and an xray thrown in to boot.

Anyway, what with fasting and waiting, all thoughts gradually floated out of my head and as far as I can tell, no new ones have replaced them.  So you’re stuck with a walk in the woods last week on the day the sun came out.

Grimsbury woods, in the middle of which there is a sort of mini castle which is in the middle of an iron age fort.   The fort makes all kinds of nice curves and shadows and isn’t everything GREEN!

Now the sun has come out again.  I’m off to look at bluebells.

Oh and the Doctor gave me co-codamol for my back.  I took one yesterday and as far as I could tell nothing happened.  So assuming that I’m not highly sensitive to it and likely to fall asleep while operating a cooker, today I took two.  Much better.  And the cooker is still awake.  So I might have a drink as well.

Update : Mrs Middle said I sounded quite out of it when she phoned me  later on.  She claimed I’d forgotten a whole conversation.  Quite untrue.  Probably.

Further update : Well maybe I should space out the co-co and the alcohol.  In the interests of remembering things which I’m already not very good at.

Irrelevant update :  The weather is looking fantastic for the weekend!

  1. Cocodamol is a freak-out drug. It gave me near-hallucinations when I had it for a cracked rib a couple of years ago.

  2. Underneath this post is an advert for ‘Knowing the signs of Alzheimer’s’. Just sayin’.

  3. There was an advert for brain training games when I looked.

    I seem to be fresh out of thoughts most of the time and sadly no cocodamol is required.

  5. I bet you remember what’s worth remembering. Anyway, always good to keep the younger generation focussed and on their toes.

  6. Oh pshaw–she made it up!

    k…maybe she didn’t make it up and we oughta pay attention.
    Or….maybe she made it up.
    I’m always making stuff like that up to mess with he-who-is-paranoid-of-taking-anything-resembling-a-medication.

    Oh……maybe I should put a prescription label on the ice cream so I can have more for ME!
    GOOD thinking!!!!! 🙂

  7. I do remember the most important things Z. Like this weekend! Yay : )

    I think she forgot Mel. I couldn’t be expected to remember what she forgot.
    Good luck with the ice cream prescription!

  11. The back is going to a spinal clinic Illuminary. Who knows, this may produce results.
