I'll be heading to San Antonio tomorrow, then driving to the Big Bend area for the Terlingua Chili Cookoff. Good times this weekend! :p

Found out what the hole in my finances was last month.
Turns out I'd paid an invoice from my own money and not claimed it back. 125 (nearly $250). Stupid really, as that's not exactly spare change.

I was able to get through because a very good friend sent me some unexpected money. I did buy a good few things I needed (clothes airer, litter bin, pillows etc) but it didn't seem to go as far as I expected. Now I know why!

They're paying me in cash this afternoon. I'm going to buy a month's Travelcard on the way home, that'll keep the money locked up nice & safe!

*smiles* just don't do what I did last year: paid 55 for a metro card and lost it two days later!

Ah you can get Oyster Cards replaced you see - as long as you've filled in the security question (which I have). You call an 0845 number and it will be stopped immediately, the remaining balance can be transferred within the next 8 days. You just have to pay for anoter card (3).

Which is why it would be safe, and away from my grubby paws :)

*grins* good point.


Making me happy today:

this is a follow up to something I said in the unhappy thread. I've been quite unwell for some time, with my eczema going nuts. <More than just an eczema flare, I felt like my body was breaking down. Last week, my feet and ankles started to swell up massively. I've been shuffling about in unlaced boots and in a lot of pain. Pain, but at no point would the itch subside either.

I was a little worried. It's never happened before. After 35 years of dealing with this stuff a new symptom worries me. That coupled with the pains in my chest...and the golfball glands under my arm...

Anyway, went to the docs yesterday. He thinks it's just an infection. I've got anti-biotics, stuff for water retention, steroids, emollients, anti-histimine/sedative tablets and two different inhalers.

I've allowed this to go way too far. Why I still do this aftre all these years I do not know :P I just resent going and getting medical help, it feels like a defeat...and I was scared it was something serious...

But: happy now, because I did it and have the right medications to sort out and then manage both the eczema and asthma again. Now I'm just hoping that the swelling responds to the anti-biotics. If it doesn't I've to go back and see the doctor who specialises in dermatology. I admit, there's still a little niggle of worry. I convinced myself the other night that both Pilau and I had fox mange mite (sarcoptic mange in dogs, scabies in humans). More recently I've worried about liver disease, cancer, thrombosis, edema....shall I go on>?

*rolls eyes* It terrifies me that something serious could go by and just be buried in the eczema syptoms. Sad or what?

*laughs* anyway. Am now on track. Took first lot of tablets last night had a much better night's sleep. Got up late, but feeling a bit better overall.

Very pleased to hear it - look after yourself!
I couldn't cope with being the only British socilaist in your absence.

Glad to hear at the least you got a better night's sleep - I know how important that is. As an aside (because it's all me, me, me) Diz and I have come to a reasonable bed sharing arrangement for the first time in two years. I sleep one side, he sleeps the other. It's working really well, and he's hardly even waking me up in the mornings now, yay!

Sunday to Saturday this week, I will have played bass for 27 hours. 3 hours rehearsal with the cover band; and then for Godspell, 11-hour long tech rehearsal, 2 rehearsals, 1 dress rehearsal and 2 performances.

Good to hear it! I think I'm going to die of Cancer, but I'm totally not. I think all my trivial concerns about my health are signs that I'm terminal, but I'm not. I'm just being a freak. And I know that. There's this little part of my brain that is stupid, is all.:D My brain is an idiot sometimes. My imagination is fully retarded.

Your brain and mine should get together sometime and compare notes :P

Happy today: Marinated venison steaks for dinner, and the start of a lovely evening tradition with the housemate... reading to each other. I haz a HUGE happee!!

Cicero 10-28-2008 02:34 PM

Oh I love that!!! No one reads to me. No one lets me read to them. Booooring!! I can't get anyone into this habit.

Of course, when you have a husband the last thing he wants is to hear your voice more. :) He doesn't view that as entertainment, more of an annoyance.

Oh hai treas...Feeling betta?

Treasenuak 10-28-2008 02:39 PM

MUCH, Cic, thank you. Turns out all the damage to the car was cosmetic, so I don't have to worry about high repair costs. Personally, I have a bunch of bumps, bruises, and sore muscles, but nothing serious. Thank you for asking. Oh, and if anyone's curious, I'll be reading "Mists of Avalon" to him and he hasn't decided what he'll be reading to me lol!

Cicero 10-28-2008 02:43 PM

Hey, that book looks pretty good. Maybe I'll go pick it up whilst in town. Thank you for giving me a reason to buy another book. :)
