Judy we love stone fruit so we will simply eat it. DH often has fruit for lunch, several bits of it.

This morning I went visiting to chat about our budgie. Two places thought he may be depressed! Apparently it can happen to budgies!!! DD's luck to buy a bird with a mental illness. We still love him to bits though. Time will tell. I had quite a chuckle at that.

Hilarious ;D ;D ;D
Yesterday was a pretty stressful day here. DS and I managed to catch the sick chook with a net. Sick or not, she could still move very quickly. I tried to check her abdomen and then massaged her crop, which was pretty empty. Wasn't very relaxing for either of us! :P I saw a post on a blog I like (Down to Earth) suggesting that homemade raspberry cordial is good for sick chooks, so I made some and put it in the chooks' water. They seemed to really like it lol.  When I went up to the backyard this morning the sick chook was waiting in line with the others to get out. She's also eating and drinking. This afternoon she was busy preening herself, with feathers falling out everywhere. I'm hoping she's on the road to recovery, although I still have no idea what's wrong with her.

Djinni, I think your Chook has been sending messages to my Chook.   When I went up with the food scrap bucket, my sick Chook hopped in wth the others.   
A girl friend for the depressed budgie sounds nice.
Not a good day for the Diet. Went out for coffee and resisted the pastries. Had Diet lunch but cooked all afternoon.  Think I will have to keep out of the kitchen.  Ate 2 hot X buns for dinner.  :-X. They were delicious.

It must have been your cordial Gayle, I hope she continues to improve.
The cook has to try her baking Chookie but 2 hot x buns!!  They really must have been delicious as Iím sure you didnít intend eating that many.

Hope your chook improves too Chookie.
It is hard to diet when you spend a lot of time in the kitchen Chookie, especially your kitchen. All manner of delicious things are produced there!

You may be right about the depressed budgie. Or we could try the magic raspberry cordial!

I popped out early this morning to buy some hydrocortisone spray for myself. I have had a reaction to something on my face. Itís exactly the same as when I had the reaction to the sun screen, but no sunscreen was involved this time. I donít know what it was.  I looked like a cooked lobster! I will have to be careful and watch what I do use. Iíve known people who develop allergies to things they have used for ages.

Yes it happens sometimes cookie, a darn nuisance trying to work out what caused it though.

Busy day here, AGM of Probus today followed by lunch with some of the girls. Onto the nursing home only to trip up a kerb in the car park and as both hands were full I fell flat on the side of my face. That concrete was pretty hard!  It instantly came up like an egg, everyone was marvellous and after holding a small tub of ice-cream against it for 15 minutes the swelling went down.  A doctor who was on his way out stopped and looked at me, gave me the all clear which I appreciated and a couple of hours after that I went to the optometrists to have my glasses fixed.  The chap broke the arm off whilst trying to put it back in the right spot so he went off and found a new frame and just took the parts he needed.  Surprisingly I didnít even end up with a headache but my eyelid looks as if it has black eye shadow on it. Note to self - look where youíre going!

I hope you find what's causing the problem Cookie. :-* :-*

Judy take care of yourself.  :-* :-* Having a fall is not pleasant at all. Great news the doctor checked you out.

Judy, that isnít good at all. Iím pleased that you donít have any major damage to yourself.

I had a rather close shave today that stirred me up a bit. DH was putting the old Ute onto the car trailer and I was directing him so that the wheels went up the ramps. When the car got to the end of the trailer something happened and it revved up and came over the end of the trailer pushing me up against the back of the car that had the trailer hitched to it. I really thought I was going to be crushed for a milli second or so. I have a cut on my back and I guess I will get one heck of a bruise.  It just shows you how easy accidents happen.
It took us hours to get the Model A off the trailer as we had to unhitch it and take it over the front of the trailer as it was far to heavy and hard to get back onto the trailer.

In the photo we have jacked the front of the old car up and put it on blocks, but we had to dismantle that and take the car of front wards.

Cookie, thatís not good at all.  Are there no male neighbours that can give DH a hand when these difficult jobs need to be done? 

Denise, what have you been up to today - can you top what we other two moderators have been up to?

Judy and Cookie, take care. Accidents just seem to happen. 
Today is the 14 th Birthday of our GS.   Tomorrow the 50 th of our DS. When GS was due to be born, DS asked his sister if she could hang on to him for another day so they could share a Birthday.  She said, no way.
 We are having them all to lunch.
