Not quite up to Andrew's prolific output but 1500 posts in 7 years isn't bad. And I'm back at IE because FireFox was being very annoying, it's faster than IE but annoying. Firefox also wouldn't let me comment on some blogs including Highriser with his fancy new comment format. Four times my comment disappeared into cyberspace so I gave up. The same happens at Miss O'Dyne's.
Now for all my birdie watchers I need a bird identified. By the time I managed to grab the camera he was gone so here's a wonky description.
Larger than a dove but the same colouring except from the beak to the eyes, the feathers were a cream colour. Then he turned around and flashed a brilliant irridescent orange along the wing feathers and that only happened when the sun shone on the feathers otherwise, dull greyish. He was scoffing down the fruitbread I'd just put out and there were no other birds around so one of a kind in my yard.
I have lost some weight and Doc Marvin has given me 6 to 12 months to drop some more before we start thinking of more drastic measures. Of course, given the size of me, 2kgs just made me look to see if a toe had dropped off but I'll take anything at this stage. Blood pressure was down, I can't imagine why, but now my elephant legs are getting a dose of diuretics. Don't take these without knowing where every toilet is located and heaven help me if a bus goes over a bump.
I did well yesterday with the walking but I paid for it last night. Life lesson no. 359, don't walk far in shoes you haven't walked in since last summer when the feet weren't quite as swollen. My mission now is to get back to the weight I was two years ago, middle 130's.
Doc Marvin made notes when I told him I had an eating disorder. He'd never heard of food being used as anger management but then he's never been locked up with my mother or had a 6 week guest stay for two years.
