And then it starts all over again...
It's all good, we're happy & that's the main thing.


We are getting into our work rhythm, we're organised & achieving lots. We have energy & strength. We're eating well - sometimes late, but we feel good. We've spent quality time with Hugo, which has been nice & we are reminded of how lucky we are... We have such lovely buddies.


Though the highlight of my week...
For the first time in 26 years, I have been able to hold off Sime beating me in an arm wrestling match...Yes!!!
I think it's all the spinach...Hahaha! My upper arm muscles have become rather large & it makes us laugh... But really it's great & just another sign that my body is working properly. It's been just over 3 weeks since I stopped taking the anti thyroid drug & the under active symptoms are wearing off slowly. The medication takes 8 weeks to kick in, so it probably will take about the same to be completely out of my system or even longer. 


Night, night
Special hugs & kisses to Nana-Stip-Pep - hope you're feeling better soon!


Popeye

That sounds a lot like our day!

I'm glad that you're feeling better. I had thyroid problems for quite a few years before they finally figured things out and I've felt so much better since they did. It makes a huge difference to feel like yourself!

you certainly look very well Kay, your skin is so fresh and healthy looking. Have a great weekend x
Hi Kay,

You certainly sound in a really good place! I love your list for the day, very similar to ours with the laughing, chatting and snuggling parts :)

I agree with Kath, you look amazing!

I love spinach! Hmmm... I'll have to try and wrestle Wayne. :)

Happy weekend Kay!

Thanks Molly - I've suffered for years with Graves Disease, but think I've finally got my immune system sorted.

Thanks Catherine - Arm wrestling's great! We've spent many hours over the years... The kids used to love it, especially when we'd all join in against Sime!

Thanks Freerangegirl - I've not only battled with my thyroid, but with the medical profession too... I'm so glad I stuck to my guns!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...
