I wanted retirement to be about simple pleasures and just enjoying time together and we have had a busy week but today was lovely.
It started badly as I have been having trouble with what I hope is something simple. I had a doctors appointment and I am being fast tracked for another gastroscopy. She said it is unlikely it is the C word but the symptoms dictate I have to be rushed through under the two week programme. I am glad they are thorough but a tad worried.
Other than that we had a lovely time. we wandered the shops, had lunch by the sea, walked round Poole Park - still one of my favourite places in the world - had a constultants appointment with no treatment YEH! about my jaw which I just want left alone and then shopped again and had dinner at Prezzo. Just lovely to be together and chill out.
It's a massive day for scrapping with new products at Pickleberrypop and By Dawn Inskip.
First of all Dawn has a lovely new collection called Memories out
and these are things I made with it
It is also Pickle Barrel Day - new packs all coordinating so you can mix and match or snap up the six pack bargains
I worked with several of the collections.
This is a collection by Dita B called nature walk
and I love the page I made of Nigel at Shasta Dam
Do go and check out the Pickle Barrel designs and Dawn work - they are all great value.
Today I am thankful for
- a very thorough GP
- a lovely day
- delicious food, though eating is hard at the moment.
and finally - I have to share this video which I think is not only superb, very cleverly made and entirely watchable but is also an amazing message. Do watch it. It is certainly food for thought.
