 Unlike the ladies at Weight Watchers, the Aqua Jogging ladies have turned out to be very friendly and kind.

They invited everyone to a group lunch after our session today.  At St Andrews Golf Club.

So I've gotta take clothes with me today to change into after my swim.

I'm looking forward to it.  I just have to make sure I make a healthy choice for me lunch.

After lunch I will come home, have me shower then head into the sewing room.

I can start stitching on the first of the 3 Cat Wall Hangings.

I can't do more than that until I pop out to Gordonton for more Steam A Seam, to carry on with the other two.  

Sooooo... I have a full day ahead of me.  Which I love. 

Have you ever been Ghosted?  
Or Ghosted someone yourself?
How do you feel about it?
Is it kind?  NO.
But, is it better than a awkward, stressful confrontation?
I'm seriously contemplating Ghosting someone.
But I'm just not sure if it's the right thing to do.

Scrap all plans.
I'm at the doctors. 
The incessant itching is back.
In fact it only 'went' for a few days.
I dont think it was Thrush after all.
Hopefully the Dr can get to the bottom of it... excuse the pun! 🤣😂😅

It took 45 minutes standing in a queue outside in the cold before I actually got in the door at the doctors. Huge queue of people waiting today. So I am going to be here a few hours I think.
But it will be worth it to get this goddam itch sorted out.

Two hours later and the Doctor thinks he's sorted it out.
The itch is possibly still thrush, OR it could be an allergic reaction to something in the pools OR an allergic reaction to one of my new Diabetes medications, which is known to cause this problem.

So, he's prescribed a new cream to try, and told me to stay out of the pool for at least a week.
To try and narrow down the culprit.

Either way, I just hope the cream works cos I'm completely OVER the itch.  It's driving me crazy.

After picking up my prescription, I popped into Farmers and bought 4 pairs of black tights for winter.
I'm now set for the next season.   

And now... it's lunchtime and I'm starving.
But before that:

ABOVE:  latest photo of progress.  Small and steady losses, as my doctor said today...  that's what works.
He's lost 35 kilos over the past 3 years, so he knows what he's talking about.  
We actually sat and yakked about weight loss, and our personal experiences for a while.  Leo is just lovely.
A super busy doctor, but he gives you the time of day.  He was our family doctor 20+ years ago, when we last lived here in Hamilton.

Right, enough yakkity yak... food!

So me lunch is over, and I'm just relaxing for a while.  Being lazy really.  

I've decided to just have the bare minimum contact with the person who I'd like to GHOST.  I'll be polite.  I'd love to treat her the same way she treats others (behind their backs), but I'm just not that nasty.  

NO relief from the itching ... YET.  Man I hope this new cream works!  

ABOVE:  And that is what I'm now using.  It's a combination Bacterial/Fungal cream, so should work surely?
Time will tell.

I just hope I get some sleep tonight... cos that's been sadly lacking of late.  Nothing like a super itchy nether region to keep ya awake I tell ya.

TMI?   Too bad.  I yak about all sorts on here! lol

And I'm gunna stop yakking now and bugger off.
Catch ya tomorrow.

I can't believe I didn't have to use this NITE NITE picture this 'summer'!  It never got too hot.  So ya get it today, cos it's cute.


  1. How ironic. My hubby just asked me what "ghosting" was yesterday!
    My thoughts.... If this was a romantic relationship, I would prefer to be told I was getting dumped. Otherwise I would wonder what happened.... forever.

    If it is a casual acquaintance I think maybe ghosting is the way to go. No need for drama with someone you don't see/talk to very often. They may not even notice.

    If it is a family member - that's complicated.

    I think I know who it is. If that person has not directly hurt or upset you, it might be better for you not to ghost them,you might stress over it. Just be polite when you see this person, but don’t go out of your way to spend time with them. Maggie. Melbourne Australia

    Good Morning 😀 only my opinion but I wouldn't waste my time on ghosting it's time and energy you shouldn't be bothered with unless they've done something to you directly. Bloody cold here snow on the ranges already GM 💙💙

    Oh my goodness. I can imagine how irritating that is. Good luck and I hope they have an anti-itch cream for you. XO Ky Girl

  5. Hugs sorry about the sourpusses at weight watchers. That happens to me a lot around here. I hope you get your itching figured out today.

  6. I like the cuffs of the leggings in the pic. Cute pants!

    1. They are old ones ... that have not fitted me in a while... but do now. I'm rather happy with me butt getting smaller. Just wish the boobs would follow suit!

    On the ghosting, sometimes I think it is kinder just to slip away. There is no point in telling them “why” if it is a personality conflict or simply two ways of living that do not mesh.

    I think a lot of that has happened since 2020.

    I have several people where I wish them well, but I really do not want to have anything to do with them.

    I think you should just do what you said and minimise contact, just in case you change your mind. As when we say words they can never really be undone....Peta

  9. I have ghosted someone just recently while
    It hurts and is awkward I
    Just can’t be bothered with the added drama
    I have tried on numerous occasions to no avail so I’m over trying. I’m 55 this year just can’t be arsed.
    I must say you are looking so fabulous weight wise don’t keep stressing about the boobs the rest is probably way important and your numbers say so from your recent tests.
    I do hope the itch settles soon.
