Oh KAtie I know exactly how you feel. When DD was in her second last year of school she developed Glandular Fever. She fainted at school several times before they figured out what it was. We ended up[ making her up a bed in the living area of the house so that we could keep an eye on her. There weren't mobile phones then and she didn't have the strength to lift the receiver off the phone. DH and I took off week about to keep an eye on her for about a month. It can be very devastating, but they do recover. DD was diagnosed with a heart murmur from it, but that eventually corrected itself too. Thinking of your DD.

Sad news re your favourite violin Marina. Why was it your favourite?

Sorry to hear of DDís problems K Atie, I wish her (and you) the best of luck and a speedy recovery. There are many bumps in the road during our lifetime but we get there in the end.

I also love facials and massages Marina, I still have a voucher here looking at me but never seem to have time these days. Sorry you lost your favourite violin but youíre in the trade to sell so I hope you find a replacement favourite very soon.  I know what you mean about wee jobs to do, I seem to have stacks of them lately - at least 2 days each week for the past few. 
I had a doctorís appointment this afternoon re a lump I found on my leg, being a bit paranoid about lumps nowadays I wanted it checked out.  No problems, I forget what he called it but it wonít go away and may get bigger.  Whilst there he offered to give me the flu vaccination, I was on the clinic list for the 20th to have one but I was pleased to get this one out of the way. 

Iíve been told itís only a 2 week wait for the Covid one Chookie, not that itís going to happen that quickly.  Iíve only been able to go online and put my name on a list for a call back when theyíre able to make an appointment with me.  My doctorís surgery arenít doing it, we have to go afar for ours.

You don't seem too worried so I trust the lump is benign, Judy.

Talking of massages - I love head massages when I go to the hairdressers, it is so relaxing.

Marina, what a beautiful instrument.  I can understand you not wanting to sell it.
I have been having the time of my life, ( and quite a challenge) printing jam labels. GD came yesterday and showed me a few tricks.

Oh yes Marina, theyíre the best but these days I only go for a cut so I miss out on them. My previous hairdresser knew how much I love them so used to do it for twice as long as anyone else did. No, not worried about the lump now.

Wow, a triple yolker is amazing Marina I can see why you loved the violin, it is beautiful.

Judy it is always wise to have lumps checked, better to feel a little embarrassed than the lump be rotten.

Wow Marina a triple yoker thatís incredible. Love weighing the large eggs .
Well DD had a bad night and was in pain with both ears , booked into GP for both of us . Now Iím on antibiotics for a virus like Laryngitis , rolling eyes now , go figure . DD needed her medicine changed , due to possibly of liver not right itís hard for her body to deal with too much Panadol . So it was good to clarify it all , no flu injections for us till we are better . DD slept all arvo .

That egg would have been a surprise Marina, did you fight over who was having it?
I made sure I had other questions to ask him so as not to waste his time cookie and I most definitely would have any lump checked out these days.  I actually saw this doctor at the football tonight so next time I see him Iíll let him know that heís in the same section that Iím in. Iím at the back on the aisle and heís much closer to the front in the middle so Iíve never noticed him there before. What a match, best one Iíve seen in a long time and even though my heart was racing all night I wasnít stressed.
Lucky you could get in to see a doctor so quickly K Atie, hopefully the medication will help you both.

Marina, in all my years of keeping Chooks, I have never seen a triple yolker.
Judy, Ral was asking if you would be at the football.  I said it would take a lot for you not to be there. Glad you enjoyed the match.
Not much happening here and it has turned cold with rain showers.

Fantastic labels Chookie.
Your footy team had a good win Judy. My team were beaten today. Saint Kilda played too well for us.

Thanks cookie, it was great.  I hadnít seen your results.
Today I visited the kids and caught up with the dogs and cats, the dogs wouldnít leave my side for the whole time I was there - theyíll be coming to stay with me for the long weekend in June so will love that.  Then I came home and cleared out the contents of my maternal grand-mothers cupboard in readiness to give DD1, full of nothing important really except the bottom shelf which held the wine & liqueur bottles.  Posted all the stationery and an 8 litre urn on my local giveaway site with good results.  That kept me busy for a few hours.
