A little time alone!

Husband's got a dentist appointment in town this morning, I'll get him to drop me off in town so I can go to Wilko's, I need to stock up on toiletries.  I rarely get the chance to have a mooch around town on my own, so will enjoy that - even though it will be a brief rapid zoom around!

Sunny and breezy this morning, perfect washing drying weather.  Luckily I have some!  There's a definite autumnal nip in the air, which I don't mind at all - would much rather be cold than hot!

Mum's got another UTI, which was picked up by the nurse - she has a daily visit from a district nurse, who checks all her vitals....Mum was apparently oblivious to the signs because of her mental deterioration, so it's just as well the nurse found it and was able to get antibiotics ordered.

Husband's new tablets for his UTIs - antibacterials instead of antibiotics - are only just barely keeping his infections at bay.  He says he can tell he has an infection bubbling under the surface, so to speak.  He's got a GP appointment next week, hopefully the results of his urine flow test will be back by then.  

Think I managed to sleep uninterrupted for about 4.5 hours last night, that's pretty good for me.


  1. Thank goodness the nurse was on top form.
    Enjoy your wander around.

  2. Enjoy your mooch around town, we don't have a Wilko so I love nipping in when I get the chance.

    Sounds like your Mum is getting good care from the nurse, good to hear the problem was spotted.

  3. I love to have a browse on my own as DH has a habit of hovering around behind me all the time I am shopping - I find it distracting and sometimes suggest he go off and look for something we need for a moments peace! Luckily he won't read this so it will remain my secret!! Hope mum and hubby get sorted. x

  4. I hope your Mum and Hubby get the treatment needed. And I hope you get the sleep you need. I'm not a great sleeper, but I no longer wake at 2am, wide-awake, with my brain working overtime! I think, as women, we worry about others and can't seem to switch off. A bit of time to mooch on your own is a good thing! xx

  5. It's good to have some time alone and the ability to look around the shops.

    I am happy that you managed to get a little more sleep, I hope it keep up. XOXO
