I bet you were relieved when the day ended Marina, you wouldn't want too many days like that.

Much to my surprise the aids are great. I havenít experienced the things people told me to expect, eg taking a month to get used to them. I was worried that they would amplify the constant tinnitus Iíve put up with for years but it tones that problem down. No-one has noticed Iím wearing them as theyíre quite a thin banana shape and are a very comfy fit, in fact itís now better to have them in and not have put up with the tinnitus. I had asked my hairdresser to leave the length longer over the ears recently in preparation for going down this path.

Not a nice situation to find yourself in cookie, they were obviously understaffed.

Well Iíve been to see the local audiologist (know her from her visits to the nursing home) and Iíve come home wearing a loan set to see how I go. She is a one-woman business.  So far so good - comfy to wear, not really visible and they have rechargeable batteries. Iím watching the cricket at volume 15 instead of 20-25 and when she did a word test, I got 2/10 without them and 9/10 with them so that speaks for itself. I can keep them until after my cataract surgery later this month then we will order them if Iím completely satisfied.

Cookie, youíre so right to enjoy life whilst youíre still up to it as things can change at the drop of a hat as we age. Pity about the a/c, you donít need this delay at getting it fixed.

That is an amazing motorhome cookie, what adventures you will have in that! You must have some very special trips in mind to go down that track.
Chookie I didnít know that about stone fruit but I must say they donít taste the same as they did in Ďthe good old daysí when everyone had fruit trees. Iíve tried a few pieces of them but a lot of the time they arenít sweet enough for me, plums, apricots and peaches so far fitting this bill. Peaches and nectarines sometimes ripen OK but often do not.  A nice trip away with the family sounds good to me.
I had my monthly cancer check-up yesterday, all good there. I took my recent hearing test results to my specialist for his opinion, it looks like hearing aids is the only option so he gave me the paperwork and wrote a letter to pass on to them. He had a laugh when I told him Iíd be having my cataracts done by the end of this month - he enlikened my planned procedures to having a car serviced.

I feel for you cookie, your temperatures over there are horrid. So are you going to swap the caravan for a motor home?

Thatís great Marina, something special every now and then no doubt.

I made half quantity of this Mushroom Pate recipe https://culinaryginger.com/mushroom-pate/ but it wasnít as tasty as the liver pate I tried at DDís place recently. These tubs will be frozen and added to soup at some stage down the track.

Spot on Marina.

Looking through the vegetable section of our forum yesterday and decided to do a veggie curry which I had done and enjoyed a long time ago https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=15029.0. I cut the curry powder from 1 T to 1 tspn but it was still too strong for me so I was unable to eat it. My specialist did tell me I wouldnít be able to eat spicy food, he is always right !

Iím sure youíre happy to be back in your own kitchen and totally inspired with some new ideas Chookie. How did your weight go, some people come back quite a few kilos heavier.
