Hi, hope this Sunday is proving to be a nice one for you!! We are having a lazy day today and enjoying the sunshine that is coming in through the living room window - despite shedloads of snow still on the ground!!! Rob had a busy day yesterday shampooing carpets so the sun is finishing off helping dry the last damp bits out!!
I have been asked what the problem is with my knee and what the surgery is that I am having; well, basically I am having keyhole surgery (arthroscopy I think it is called) on my knee to do some remedial work - tightening the muscle round it I believe - following a lifetime of dislocations from the age of 7 when I ran in from Brownies one night, jumped in an armchair and dislocated it for the first time. When I dislocated it again in August that was the first time in 14years that I had done it badly and subsequently the team at the hospital decided it was time (with a bit of pushing from me) to do some preliminary work. I cannot, apparently, have a replacement until I am in my 60's but I have a sneaky feeling that they will find more damage in and around my knee than they are expecting when they get that jolly old microscope in there on the 27th!! I am on edge about it but it has to be done so I will be trying to counteract my nerves as much as possible before next Saturday!!!!

Yay, I am back!!!!!! Been wanting to get back for a while but kept putting it off - why I don't know....but possibly cos I spent too much time on facebook, LOL!!!
So much to say but not sure where to start!!! It seems like forever since I was last here so forgive me if I repeat anything that was said the last time I dropped in.......blame it on my age, LOL!!!
As I type I am sitting patiently waiting for the plumber to arrive!! We have not had heating for over a week now......well the central heating that is.......since the boiler decided to stop functioning fully!!! We have got hot water thankfully and a gas fire in the living room but that has been it - you don't realise how much you rely on the central heating to keep you warm until it malfunctions!!!! It has not helped that we have had a considerable amount of snow fall in the last 2 days so it is more than a bit cold!!!!
This time next Saturday I will be having surgery on my knee, albeit keyhole surgery but I am hoping it will be a success to improve the problem with my knee until I can have the major stuff done in a few years time!!! I am nervous but then I always am when it comes to surgery so I just can't wait until it is all over........hopefully home again on the same day!!!
I am about to leave the job I have been doing for the past 2+ years with the local Community Mental Health team; I am sad to be leaving but have no choice.......the funding has run out for the post and the job will cease to exist once I leave so I can't even apply for the job that has been mine for 27 months.
I think when I last wrote our Sascha was just a wee puppy of a few months, well she is now a bouncy 2yr old with so much energy!!!! She has the intelligence of her German Shepherd daddy and the energy and willfullness of her Border Collie mum - an intriquing combination and we definitely cannot outwit her, LOL!!! She is definitely a daddies dog though...does not give me the time of day at all when Rob is around!!!
Anyway, time to fly as it is Saturday and shopping day!!! I am so pleased to have got back into the blog......still not like J-land but nothing ever will be!!! Will catch you later!!! loads of love to all my friends (if you are still reading!!!).
