    January 19 Here we go again!

    Eve, I don't really know anything about my parents history..my dad died when I was nearly 7 and my mother moved away from Yorkshire and her brothers and sister and never really talked a lot about them but I wonder if there is Scottish ancestry, or even if her father may have been Scottish. Apparently when I'd been naughty once I was sent to bed with no tea and I retorted that when I was big, I wouldn't keep a bairn and starve it! Bairn isn't a Yorkshire term is it, it's Scottish so I must have heard it from family.

    Good choice for the chocolates Owl. Brownie points stacked up for emergency dog sitting. Suzeanna, my aunt was christened Margaret. I don't know why Peggy is the shortened name for it but it's all I've ever known her by. Obviously not just a Scottish thing then. Good that the Army is looking after that young lad, you hear so often that our injured soldiers are just left to cope on their own, and I include PTSD and other mental health disorders as 'injuries'. Pleased the weather wasn't so bad it affected you getting to your appointment.

    Glad the platelet count is holding stable, Suzeanna. That poor soldier. I hope there will be enough advances in pain management in his lifetime for him to get some improvement. Snow was forecast for here but just got drizzle. Jazz, you are wise not to go out in snow and ice. I avoid it if possible. Wispa used to love snow but went off it about 3 years ago. I rehomed the box of chocolates to my emergency dogsitter, who feeds Wispa and lets her out if I have to be away for the day.

    Poor lad Suzeanna. I am glad that the army is looking after him - as they should. With modern medicine and surgery people are now able to survive many types of injuries that at one time would have killed them but some are left with their health being severely compromised nonetheless. Those appointments soon come round don't they. Ruby is off to Newcastle in a couple of weeks time for her first 6 month scan after her surgery. We had some flakes of snow earlier but they came to nowt.

    They say there's always someone worse off than you, and boy was that brought home to me today at the hospital. A young guy..couldn't have been more than mid thirties...struggling on a walker and obviously in a lot of pain. I asked him what he'd done..he was blown up in Iraq, mangled his spine! This is about the fourth hospital he's been in, lots of steel in his back but it will never be right and he'll never be pain free. I could have cried for him, and when he asked me my problems and I told him about the incurable cancer, he was so genuinely shocked and sorry for me I could have cried again, in fact I nearly am now thinking about it. He said the Army is looking after him, he lives locally which is why he's now in the Royal and they are paying for his house to be made easily accessible for his needs, including one of those lifts that you can get a wheelchair into.

    We are meant to get snow Monday night, I think. Eve, was your aunty actually christened Peggy? I ask as my mother was, and when she was at school they had a new teacher who said she didn't approve of nicknames and she would call her by her correct name, Margaret. Mother politely pointed out that she was christened Peggy, it wasn't a nickname! Mind you, her eldest sister was called Ada Florence after their mother, but always known as Nan, not quite sure why. Not slippery today so I made it to the hospital despite my left knee deciding it hates me. Two paracetamol and a codeine seem to have fixed it. Platelet count is ok so stay on the same tablet regime and go back in three months. What with three months for that dept and three months for the cancer oncology, I'm beginning to feel as if I live there!

    Great work with the foster, Jazz. Bitterly cold here. Ice over half inch thick on bird drinkers. I am still sleeping very badly. I fall asleep fast enough, can barely stay awake in evenings, then wake at 4 or even 3 feeling very depressed and can't get back to sleep until time to get up. Haven't been right since that awful scene I had before Christmas in shopping centre with now ex friend. I have moments of feeling OK then it comes back and hits me.

    Hahaaa Jazz. Does your scooter cope with snow or not? I've been excused jury service. I think it would be very interesting to do it but my health problems won't allow, When I was a student I sat in the public gallery a few times and longed for the day I might get called to sit on a jury but it came 30 years too late.

    Sincere condolences on the loss of auntie Peggy Eve. How's your dad doing? That's good news on the little foster Jazz. Between Ruby going out to work and me coming down after a shower (about 30 minutes) Archie had a pee and poop party down here. The poop was distributed from the kitchen through the dining room and down the hall to the sitting room. Wee confined to the dining room carpet. Has anyone had any snow? None here but still very cold.

    Lovely to get the chocs Owl, even if you can't eat them. Hope you find a suitable home for them. Pleased you got a date for your op Jazz. Was a little bit icy here first thing, but not too bad, and a beautiful sunny day. Auntie Peggy passed yesterday, which was actually a blessing. She was 89 and had been in poor health for a while. Dad, on the other hand, was actually awake when I visited today, though not 100% with it. Looked brighter though, which was good. Actually going out for a meal tonight. Just down to the local pub but will make a nice change not to cook.

    Cannot really do that in case the donors get to find out that they were raffled. I have had one or two ideas though and am certain I can find them a suitable home.

    Can you have a small raffle amongst the other volunteers Owl? Sure someone would love them.

    I went to the reserve visitor centre for lunch today and found a surprise waiting. The owners of the lovely cat I found deceased last Thursday and took home to his people had been in and left a box of posh chocolates and a card with a nice message of thanks. They must have looked at my profile and seen where I work. Now I have to work out what to do with the chocolates as I can't eat the stuff. Some even have liqueur in which is even worse for me. Someone is going to get lucky.
