Looking ahead

It's been two whole weeks since I left the house but I've been resting, relaxing and recuperating after my operation three weeks ago. I've read all of the novel kindly sent to me by my good friend Eunice and I enjoyed it so much I've ordered the sequel. Hubby's completed another Wasgij and is currently upstairs choosing another to start on. I bought him no less than eight jigsaws for Christmas so two down just six to go!


Look what I saw through my living room window yesterday. I had to take a sneaky photo through the vertical blinds. It's the horse I like to go and see in the nearby field and I don't think I've ever seen him being ridden before. The lady rider was having a five minute social distancing conversation with the driver of the car. Made my day it really did :)


Today I had the phone call I was expecting and have a hospital appointment booked for tomorrow to discuss further treatment. I feel very fortunate in the midst of this current epidemic and I can't praise our NHS highly enough.

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the book, I was hoping you would. How nice that you saw the horse being ridden, at least you know he's not just left in the field all the time. I hope your hospital appointment tomorrow has a positive outcome - fingers crossed :)

    1. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and thank you for sending it to me. I found at the end it was quite thought provoking and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel. I couldn't believe the horse was "parked" outside my house like that, looks like he's well used to being out on the roads or pavement in this case :) I'll email you when I return from the hospital x

  2. Lovely to have a good book and puzzles, for both of you, to make the time less tedious.

    Ahhhhh, the horse and its rider!!!! Delightful...

    So glad you are able to have your necessary appointment!

    Wonder if you will have the *Drill* that I had, when I went to our Local Hospital for my in hospital out patient testing? They took my temp, and asked me questions. And today, at another (not hospital) appointment, I wore a mask, temp taken, and receptionist came out to get me, when it was "clear."

    Gentle hugs...

    1. Hubby gets engrossed in his puzzles, they're a challenge as the jigsaw puzzle isn't the same as the picture on the box and he loves doing them. It was nice to see the horse "parked"outside my house :) I'm not sure what to expect at this appointment and it was definitely a surreal experience when I had my operation three weeks ago. I'm grateful to be seen at all as sadly not all cancer patients are being treated during this crisis.

  3. Glad to hear about the hospital appointment & good luck. Ah, I took a photo of hubby's finish on his Wasgij that is still sitting on the table now and I forgot to post it on my last blogpost. It was very needed in that cold wet spell we've just had. Lovely to see the horse & happy that it made you smile. Take care, stay safe & huggles.

    1. This appointment will give me a better idea of the way forward so I'm not worried about it. I hope you'll post a photo of your hubby's Wasgij on your blog and I hope he enjoyed making it as much as my husband does. It was nice to see the horse as we don't see many people passing the house at the best of times. Thank you for your email address and short email sent. Take care x

    Pat on the back to your hubby for completing the Wasgij (I even find that difficult to pronounce, let alone complete one)!! Well done getting the photo of the horse and rider - I wonder if the horse knew you lived nearby :)

    1. Hubby has more patience than me, I couldn't sit for hours jiggling those pieces about. I like to study a picture on the box and place the pieces accordingly but not so my husband! I pronounce them Wasjigs but I know that's not right :)
      Now that's a thought, maybe the horse came to see me, led the lady rider here knowing that I hadn't been to see him for a couple of weeks. I can't explain why the car driver stopped there to talk though :)

  5. That's a lovely horse. I hope your appointment went well and that you can be reassured by your treatment plan. X

    1. I think the horse is a she and she is a beauty. Unfortunately I still have questions to ask and a decision to be made, it turned out to be an information overload.

  6. I haven't done a jigsaw for years but Mick bought me one for Christmas so I've got that to start on yet. I hope your hospital appointment went well, I know how nerve wracking these things are.

    1. We were going to make the puppy jigsaw together but put it away and hubby can get on with his stack of Wasgijs. The oncologist has given me a lot to think about this weekend.

    Yes, it will be interesting, if there is a second wave.

    Here, the latest DOOM & GLOOM stuff, suggests that like the Spanish Flue, places that opened up, got a second wave. But of course, most of our media wants our country to remain shut down, so our economy will completely collapse. So their Liberal Candidates will be elected in the fall.

    Locally, we only have 4 in hospital at present. NOT being overwhelmed, at all.

    And that is more than enough, on this miserable COVID-19.

    Have a lovely day!

    Lots of gentle hugs,

    1. The latest in the UK is that Wales has extended the lockdown for another three weeks with the stay at home message. England are relaxing measures with a be alert message. Obviously more worried about the economy than people's lives.
