pom pom mystery

coming home this afternoon i looked into the park next door and saw this -

pom poms, large, small and in lots of colours.  i don't know who put them there but they look lovely.

what a morning

i was woken at 2am with severe stomach pain.  i was sweating and felt like vomiting.  oh dear.  i took a buscopan which is a stomach spasm medication and after about an hour it started to ease slightly.  i was going to ring an ambulance but thought i'd wait and see if the medication helped.   this morning it is delicate but much better.  i'll go to the doctor later.  then i came downstairs to charge the mobile and the little adaptor was missing.  the g/kids were here last night.  i eventually found it and the phone is charging.  then i turned on the laptop.  no internet.  great.  it was working on the phone.  after half an hour of trying to fix it i restarted it and guess what?  it is working again.  i hate technology.

another eye post

a lot of people have dry eyes but i have the opposite.  tiny oil glands near the eyelashes produce oil to lubricate the eyes and mine produce too much. it's not really a problem at the moment.  some of the floaters i've been seeing are in fact tiny oil slicks.  i still have inflammation so the doctor prescribed more drops.  my eyesight is quite good and i have to put hot compresses on my eyes throughout the day.  it's the most beautiful autumn weather here at the moment it makes one feel glad to be alive.  my friend in perth went to the football the other day and it was 29 degrees which is amazing for may.  my daughter and the kids might come down today and i've got some painting to do.  good weather for it

cut it out

the doctor found a 'suspicious mole' when i had my skin check recently.  so made an appointment to have it removed.  after ringing the surgery to get the results as requested i had to wait 5 days for the doctor to ring me back and tell me it was a benign tumour.  yesterday i attended the same clinic to keep the appointment to have the stitches removed.  but the doctor said they are not ready to be removed so made me an appointment with the same doctor who did the procedure in the first place in two weeks.  yep.  two weeks.  that can't be right can it?  after waiting 1.5 hours to see the doctor, i had to wait again so that the nurse could redress the wound.  the doctor had to type out the report twice (he made a mistake with the first one) so that the nurse could do this.  he could have done it himself in 5 minutes.  i could have done it myself in 5 minutes.  i hate that clinic.
