    Morning hileena, how sweet of you to think of me, I am touched (well, we all know that, don't we?) Things aren't good. Never mind, eh? It doesn't matter. I have the humira tonight, followed by the meth on Wednesday which will, of course, fully restore me to just moderately poorly, instead of my current level of extremely poorly. Once we are shot of the houseguests (come Saturday) I hope to be able to return to mildly poorly. That'd be good, but I am not banking on it. DD

    Hi DD
    Sorry just getting back to this now.......Of course we know you are touched :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Seriously......It must be a pain having the house guests {even if it is mothers} as well as arthur giving you pain.
    Hope the Humira helps tonight

    Love Hileena

    Morning hileena and thank you: yes, I am fully restored to moderately grotty and I am about to go downstairs and face the onslaught of breakfast. Santa's little gift thread explains some of the difficulties of life at the moment. Pass the sherrry, there's a sweetie. DD needs a glug.

    Tut, tut DD, the sherry'll give you a headache, you'll be far more chilled out in the den. I shall go there shortly, my foot is itching like blue blazes but it's impossible to scratch, wrapped up as it is like a mummy's corpse :lol:

    Joan you are ever hopeful. Help with the washing up..... I hope you are a bit more than moderately grotty DD? I have house guests too and rushed off my painful ankle and swollen knees but you go with the flow don't you?

    Believe you me, tkachev, moderately grotty is a great improvement on the past few days - and I hope you are feeling much better now. Yup, the mums have helped out with the washing up etc. My mum has just used 10 litres of water (a full washing up bowl of the hot stuff) to clean four mugs and a teaspoon. Bless. Being the slut I am (plus we have a water meter and live in a dry part of the world) I would have left them until the dinner washing up but no, that won't do. Similarly, if she is making a cup of tea the kettle has to be brimmed. Never mind, eh? One has gone home, just one left. Mine. My teeth are slightly less gritted - my mum and I do have the odd giggle together. Occasionally. DD

    It's all gone wrong. I feel 'better' in myself but the pain levels have not altered. It's tiredness I guess. I don't want the pain to go or stop, it would only come back so what's the point? I would like it to ease a little tho, the relentless nature of it is so tiring. Never mind, eh? It will pass, all things do. DD

    Hi DD,
    I find that when I'm tired an stressed (house guests) it leaves your pain levels all over the place. Things that I can normally cope with seem just that much harder. I sincerely hope that when the holidays are over you can rest and try to recover. I REALLY do understand re house guests 'trying' is an understatement! Im going to need a holiday just get over this one! Thinking of you Poppy X

    I was feeling a little less stressed. Didn't last long tho. I took mum out to Wyevale Garden Centre this afternoon - they have two new concessions there, Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Cotton Traders. We went into both, but in Cotton Traders I saw a pretty pink fleece jacket (with a zip) and a blue one (hooded, with buttons) - that's more of a cardigan-style. Mum said she would buy me the blue one, which was very kind of her, then whilst waiting to pay for my pink one she cheerfully announced to the store that her daughter had once been tall and very slim, but was now grossly fat due to her medication which is why she needed a much bigger size in everything. I managed to turn it all into a joke but oh boy that wasn't easy. Hit me where it hurts, Mother - at least I can provide you with a generous target area.

    hileena, is there any sherry left? DD

    Oh you poor thing dd, good job you are quick to react.
    I bet you had wished the ground would open, that was terrible.
    I do think when people get to a certain age that they cant control their thoughts and out it comes. My nana (who was kind to me 86 when she passed away) was the same with my mum in her latter years.
    I think my mil is going that way too. sometimes she can hit below the belt.
    You look lovely in the jacket, it suits you.
    Hope you have a better day today
    love juliepf x

    My mum has gone. I am now struggling up and down the stairs sorting out beds and pillows etc. My knees, shins ankles and toes are full with inflammation, I am tired beyond belief but the white wine is in the fridge, the beer is under the stairs, I will shortly be casseroling some beef with olives and our house is once again our own. BLISS. Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful support over this rather difficult time. DD
