Well I planed to go to my daughters tomorrow night but they are all chucking up so that's stopped that till they are well.Had to trim my little finger nails as they had got very long, got a cut in the palm of my right hand and blamed the plastic housing that I pulled of a Clio but it lines up perfectly with my nail. Must be from when I gripped it, shame the rest of them wont grow or break.

Went to the opticians for a follow up , wants to refer me to the hospital due to "new" blood vessels in my eye . Told him that's what happens when I have the attacks and they go, will be at least another week before it returns to "normal". Sent the paper work back for my pension so waiting on that, sold my project beetle  and a floor pan so can now order the panels needed to finish my panel van. Getting over this "bug" or whatever it was that was making me run down/tired.

Hope your eye continues to get better - sounds like a real hassle but glad it isn't worse.

As an experienced welder I assume you have all the right equipment.  In earlier years I had friends who had bloodshot eyes after welding without adequate eye protection.  That freaked me out and is one reason I never learned how to weld - it's a skill I wish I had.

Are eye issues common for those who weld for a living? I don't know anything about it other than as a kid "having a go" when I worked at the local engineering shop. Scared the heck out of me... ;)

My welding makes birds laugh and drop things on my car as they fly over.

Well I noticed tonight that I have a grove on my shoulders, wondered why the bra straps had stopped slipping off!!!!!! Wearing a bra for the last 7 months has made my posture better, shoulders back and not hunched, bonus.

Had to go to the local post office to pick up a registered letter, got the 3rd degree from the lady behind counter. Not the proof of identity NO my nails and earrings!!!!!! Got a compliment as well,  got away with a "its how I am" and left it at that. Decided to try my new hook earrings tonight as I got a bit dressed up and loving them dangling so must get some more, longer and bigger I think. Wearing my 38 A bra that my moobs fit but also have my breast forms in and that gives me a good cleavage , looks good with my green shirt dress.

  Hi Davina,

  Glad you go up to see your daughter and that it went well. I'm sorry for the little one teething as I remember how difficult that time can be for both the youngin and the parents.
  I remember well my daughter teething once and having a difficult time with it. I was rocking her when she threw up on the towel on my shoulder so I got rid of the towel. She then threw up on my shirt. So I removed my shirt. When she threw up on my chest and shoulder I gave her to her mom and took a shower.

  Hugs are nice, especially from family.

 Hugs,
   Laurie

Heated seats.  Davina I discovered the same thing in fall/winter weather - the thinner fabrics women often wear need heated seats.  It's a requirement.

Dragged my mum out shopping (didn't take much!!!!) and got a spice grinder and a lamp for lounge so I can see this key board better. Appointment at bank ok, the girl sorting my account asked where I got my necklace as she liked it and she also thought my nails were jel (just painted and clearcoat) . As I had to tell her my circumstances she said well done and go for it if that's what you want.

 Good for you Davina,

  Did you buy that spice grinder for me? Nails are an easy topic to start a conversation at least it was for me.
