Husband didn't do too badly with the shopping. With a few items he didn't choose what I would have picked, but then I didn't specify the exact brand/weight/size. But they were all things that we regularly have, you'd think he would have known what one to get....hey ho. Bearing in mind we're going to be eating a lot of green veg the next few days, I'd put on the shopping list 'Selection of green veg' - he got a bag of sprouts and a very small cabbage. Hmmm, will have to send him out for a top up shop in a day or two. He did well with the Cheddar, left to his own devices he would have just got a huge value pack of the cheapest (and tasteless) cheese.....I did tell him not to get that, but to get a decent mature Cheddar, which he did (probably because it was on special offer!). However, he forgot the eggs, and some fruit for himself. He'll get better with practise, and is insistent he's quite happy to carry on doing it, which I'm pleased about.
I went to the osteopath yesterday afternoon, it was fine as usual and I now feel totally relaxed. She starts off by having me stand with my back to her, whilst she uses her fingers to feel all down my spine, across my pelvis and then my shoulders. The first time of going, when she did that I was all "Ow, ooh that's tender there, Ouch!!"......now, nothing, not a twinge. Whilst I was lying on the couch and she was doing her thing with those little movements of her fingers, I had just one tender knotty spot in the middle of my back, nowhere else. Felicity feels I've responded so well (which I know I have) that I don't need another treatment until mid January, which I'm happy about. She's a miracle worker.
Husband had a phone call from Yeovil hospital yesterday to say that the surgeon wants to do a phone consultation with him next Monday - what for, I don't know. He was told a few months ago he would have his prostate operation before Christmas (this one coming! He's already been waiting 2 years) - whether that's still going to be the case I don't know. It's up to husband, of course, if the surgeon wants to do the op in the next couple of weeks, but personally I'd rather he didn't - he'll be recuperating and unable to do anything much for x amount of time, just like this time last year when he'd had his foot op. Having him out of action that close to Christmas will be a bit of a nuisance, we've got things planned, I'll have lots to do and then the added nurse stuff, chores that husband normally does and taking the dog out 2x daily on top. Well, what will be will be.
Driving home from the osteopath's late in the afternoon, the sun was setting and therefore loads of people had their Christmas decorations all lit up - beautiful, I do love seeing all the lights.
Storm Barra arrives today, thank goodness we don't have to go anywhere! Hope nobody suffers any damage, or minimal at least. Stay safe and warm.
