TOTALLY 'FREE' DAY

I don't have anything 'on' today.  It's going to be a quiet day.

Depending on how I feel later on, I might do some sewing.

Or I could go into Hamilton?  The grocery shopping is due to be done.  But I'm not sure I can be bothered.

I'm tired all the time right now... probably due to the small amounts of food I can only eat at the moment?  Basically, I'm only having one meal a day, and that will continue until I get the acid reflux under control.

So.... pretty boring start to the day here.

I took a couple of lovely photos of Stew and his sister, Khady, yesterday morning.  Just remembered them:


ABOVE:  Such a shame they don't get to see each other very often.

Right, I'm off to do SOMETHING.  Or nothing.  

ONWARD...

MEH.  I'm bored.  I'm going into Hamilton to do a couple of things. I might even go to Donna's Quilt Studio and wander around the fabric.  Sad, sad tart that I am.

My phones not working right now either, so no one can text me and expect a reply even!  I can Facebook message though, which is kinda good I suppose.  

11.56 pm:  Well I did go into Hamilton.  Did the two things I wanted to do, then went to Spotlight for some fabric dye.   I got the dye, wandered around the shop looking at other stuff, then left the shop.

10 paces from the shop, I realise I've not actually paid for the two dye packets in me hand!  OH SHIT!  Literally turn around and run back to pay... scared shitless a security officer was about to pounce on me!  Scary feeling!!!

Anyway I get home, and decide to try out the sparkling Aqua Lite Water I have had in the fridge FOREVER:


ABOVE:  And would you believe this 'water' is worth 4 Weight Watcher points???  Total rip off, it's not just water obviously.  I didn't drink it after all.  
I am now having Diet Ginger Beer, for 1 point a can.  And I like it.

 ABOVE:  Left - a year ago.  Right - today.  I'm slowly making progress on that friggin face.... and the body that goes with it.  *smiles*

After two days with no phone due to a stuff up with our account, I'm finally connected again.
I can't believe how much I missed being about to text!
And I hate texting!

Oh well... sorted now.

Tonight Coronation Street is on, TVNZ have broken up the 2 hour Friday programme, and changed it to 1 hour X's three nights.  So, Thursdays are a good night!  And Friday. And Saturday!  hee hee.

And that's me for the day.  Can't imagine anything else happening here today.

  2. Please eat more, even if it's only a few smaller meals through the day. Otherwise your body will shut down. The important thing is to minimise the fizzy drinks and nothing after 6:00 pm at night. Trust me, I know all about night reflux! I am very surprised your doctor didn't put you on anything to control it.

    1. She did, 2 losec tablets in the morning, and two at night. Until they kick in, I have to suffer.

    2. OH! Sorry I thought they were for your headaches :) Good old Gavascon. Ugh. I had to get my lapband removed because I was actually waking up choking on stomach contents (shudder). I still have to take Nexium. And I actually get reflux at night now, where previously there was no burning, just the contents. At least it's not bad, and it's usually just a kind of pressure deep in my chest. Thank goodness. But then, too, that's only when I stuff myself at dinner and have a cuppa and biscuit afterwards! haha! I hope you find relief soon! <3

  4. I love peach but I cannot do sparking drinks-yuck. They use to make a peach frozen concentrate over here that I added to my teas and of course - they quit making it. What happened to your bike ride today? I think you are totally one of the most beautiful women on the planet. (Bet stew does too) I was telling a friend over here about you today and how much I treasue you. Remember we are all a work in progress.

  6. You could try Red Seal cold brew teas and sparkling water (I have a soda stream)
    They are really yummy and they have lots of flavored. And no sugar

  7. Chris, you probably might not be aware that Omeprazole (Losec) causes your body to stop absorbing vitamin B12 from your food. Over time you can become seriously deficient causing headaches, tiredness etc. I take a B12 supplement due to this as this is the only way you can absorb it while on omeprazole (which I take a low dose of). Not many people know about this so I just thought I'd let you know.
