November 1st

Spoke to the Doctor that has bean looking after me regarding my wrist from when it was broke. My wrist is still very painful.  I have bean massaging it with PHORPAIN IBUPROFEN GEL 10% W/W, this helps a bit but I think there is something a bit wrong with my wrist. I twisted it when drying Luna, since then it has not bean right at all. The Doctor said I would receive an appointment soon to see him. 

Cleaning up stairs today got most done, the rest tomorrow. 


Pilates on my bike cold and windy. I think Winter is on its way. I did not go quite as hard on the squats this week, as muscle pain last time for a few days. Shows how much not doing something can affect you.  


Finished off doing the bedrooms, went over downstairs as well. Paul was sanding the back hallway cupboard door and there was sawdust on the floor, so I left the vacuum out for him to finish when he had done. 

Later a lot of fireworks were going off some with very loud bangs. I had Luna tucked in my hoodie and she seemed to like them. In fact she grumbled when it was quiet, more so with the ground fireworks. She could hear them but not see them.  I am still down stairs sleeping with Luna. We get quite a good nights sleep.  Not sure what the next step is but for now its as it is. 


A very wet day rained a lot, river is very high. We are lucky as many people have left their homes because of serious flooding. I know it's very wet on the common with small underground streams and rivers appearing in a lot of places. You have to be careful that you do not slip. Saw Mary and gave her the calming spray and plug in, to hopefully help Rory, as he is terrified of firework and loud bangs. He was a street dog for a few years so no ones really knows what he went through. Hope it helps as he is a lovely dog.

Our friend John is here tonight to treat us to a Chinese super as a thank you for Paul taking him to appointments out of Lincoln. The Chinese was very good and Andrew joined us as well, everyone enjoyed the food.


 Lindsay and family plus Paul, went to see the Sincil Bank football ground fireworks. Tommy-Lee's girlfriend Kiera had got a very bad case of TONSILLITIS and looked very pale. Tommy-Lee was not the best either. Andrew, Luna and I did not go. Andrew is not really interested and would sooner watch them in the garden. I can not go as it could bring on SEIZURES, the flashing lights have never bean very good for me even be for I had SEIZURES. I always felt dizzy at fairgrounds often with headaches too. At a display you are just sat waiting for the fireworks to begin, never on time either. No sooner started then finished. Not like when I was growing up, a big bonfire a small box of fireworks. A great time. We then watched any others that went off. So casual and just a nice night. When I was younger we often used to put half cooked potatoes to finish baking in the embers of the fire. My parents trusted us enough to let us do this and get close to the fire. Not like today, that is if there even is a bonfire at all, it would be roped off. Were we a lot more sensible or more grown up than to days children!? 


Today I am varnishing the doors for the cupboard that Paul has sanded down. This takes a long time as new soft wood. Three coats are recommend, I am hoping just to do two and see how it goes. This I am doing outside but it's a bit cold and soon gets dark. Going well, holding the brush a bit hard at times but starting and stopping seems to work. Most bits have had at least one coat so the rest another day.

 Doing well with the blanket I am making, nearly half way there. Then I will be decreasing all the way down to four stitches again. When finished I will put a picture up. Just another one to make after this one is finished. I am going to do smaller stripes. Not sure why, but this seems to go quicker possibly because you change colour more often.


Cold wind on the common. Saw Mary and Rory she said he was terrified and did not even want to go out for a wee. She thought the plug in and spray helped but needed more time to saturate the house. Poor Rory he is such a good dog. Luna's coat is keeping her warm and dry and everyone thinks she looks very cute in it. I got some new tracksters today for my Pilates sessions and when I go running again. My others are at least a decade old and very tattie. Hopefully they will be a bit warmer when going on my bike this winter. Got a few Christmas presents come as well.


Paul and I took my bike (in the back of the car) for a service as badly needed one. He said he would have it done at the latest Wednesday next week. 

Went into town to get a few Christmas presents did quite well too. Had to ring Paul to meet me, as the bags got too heavy for me. I was going to come home by bus but they are all usually full after the bus station stop. I would have got on the one out of town, so no much chance of getting a seat. I do not like buses anyway and have not bean on one for over three years since be for COVID. Very tired later and shoulder pain too, from the bags of shopping. Bit more of the blanket going well.


Nice walk on the common Squidgy and his son Ben (ex neighbours)came round to see us, just as I came back from the common. After they had gone I cleaned up before going to see my friend Lyn as its her Birthday. I looked at the clock and thought it said eleven am but no it was twelve. I had to hurry then as going on the bus around one ish. Got there ok it felt weird being on a bus again as not bean on one for around three years. The journey is only a short ride around two- three miles. Lyn and Mo her husband are both well. She looks very good as a bit older than me but not as many health problems. Good to see her, as last time we met up was my Birthday in February. Her bungalow is very nice and tidy the whole time but can be cold as they only heat up the one room.  


Pilates went well, the bike rode a lot smoother and just glided along. Went up Canwick hill lovely, cold and windy along the back roads. I put my balaclava on coming home under my helmet to cover my ears a lot warmer than going . A good session but wrist is very painful, not good when you need it to hold the handlebars. Cup of tea and a big cuddle with Luna when I got home.


FLU and COVID jabs then into town to get some wool to make my friends baby a blanket. She is called Heather and is the new baby daughter of Helen and Paul and sister for Poppy who is four. Well done all of you.

Jabs went well arms a bit tender but not too bad. Came home and watched Starship take off went well did more this time. Did the belly flop not easy for something weighing around 120 tons plus.

Later we had Indian for tea very nice too. Later I did not feel the best probably tired out. During the night hot and cold dizzy even when lying down. 


Legs and arms very painful spasms too. Got up violent headache. I took Luna as sometimes it can help in the fresh cold air. I think it did make my head feel a bit better. I just feel so hot and dizzy all the time. Later mid afternoon I had a lay down on the settee with Luna of course. Felt better after wards head not as spinning.


I feel a bit better but not really that good mostly just sat all day sometimes knitting other times just resting. Finished off the first blanket just the ends to sew in. 

Blanket all done came out a bit bigger than the last one I made.

Getting the other one started now, smaller stripes like I said plus one more colour as I used some on first blanket. Did some washing and put it out I think it will dry. 


Looks like it will rain soon, so getting Luna out early after her brush. She did not get her brushed yesterday and it showed a few knots. Hopefully she will be able to get cut soon, last time she was scared of the clippers so Maxine could not do too much. I do feel quite a bit better but not quite right yet. I think this was a reaction to the jabs I had. At a guess I would say the FLU one. Any way I am on the way up now. I am going to give Pilates a miss this week as a ten mile round trip so not up to that. 

Did a bit of cleaning up but forgot the water was off. Lucky it was not off long so able to do bathroom and kitchen the rest tomorrow. 


As I said no Pilates this week. Rested and did more knitting of second blanket going well and seems to be faster. Twenty row stripes instead of forty rows, More changes and ends to sew in but looks good. 

I feel stronger today but very tired and headache back again.  Limb pains just about gone now so I am very pleased about that.


Sharp frost very cold on the common. Luna did not feel it as she was running around, I am pleased I got her the red coat as she soon gets cold when stood.  She now weighs 4.9kg so not much at all, since last month she has put on a little bit from 4.5. Later working on this Blog bringing it up to date.

Andrew and I are going to make a Christmas cake. I said I was not going to make one but Andrew said he would help so today's the day. Cake baking went well. Andrew did most of it and I weighed up the ingredients. The cake smelt so good while it was cooking. I am making John a sponge cake like I did last year. Then that's it, no more as it takes me a lot longer to do some things now. My grip is not good neither is my concentration either. I need my glasses to just see labels and cooking instructions.


A wet start to the day. Luna was confused as we held off to see if the rain stopped a bit. We got out around two pm, so not too bad Luna was very happy. With going out at a different time we met a lot of new people and dogs. Paul and I went Christmas shopping to see what presents we could get. Not very successful as only got one. At least it's one less. I got Luna a treat ball recommended by Westie Vibes; a youtube channel I watch. You fill it with treats then the dog rolls it around to get them, can take a while as it has a lip. It's the Planet Dog Orbee- Tuff Lil'Snoop --Interactive Treat Dispensing Dog Toy small Royal Blue from Amazon. 


Luna's hair cut today, how will it go? Last time not too good as she was scared of the clippers. This time however, she very good and Maxine managed a good groom on her. I did have to hold her at times but on the whole she was very good. Maxine was very surprised how she coped with it all as well. She looks so sweet now and a lot smaller too.

She looks so sweet.

Had a walk with Andrew to get some things from Hobby Craft just outside of the town centre. Also Boyes in town, quite a walk as already bean on the common. It was very cold as well. Luna was not happy at being left but she will be alright. I did get my Brother his Christmas present so that's good. Luna was very happy we were back.

New people have moved in next door, and their dog barks a lot, it's only a little dog but can be very annoying.


Went to see my friend Joy today took both her Christmas and Birthday present. I have not seen her for ages just speaking on the phone. Good afternoon and nice to see her face to face. Paul took me and the presents as around two miles away and I walked back calling in the town and getting a few more Christmas bits.  


No Pilates today as very cold again and sharp frost. I would be going on my bike and I did not think it was worth it for an hours Pilates. I think I will struggle in the cold weather getting there. I could go by bus, but it's around twenty minutes or more to the bus stop as it does not come past the high street. The buses are a mystery to everyone as they run when they feel like it. The first ones runs on time and after that's it's a have I missed it  or not. Coming back home it's the same. So I like to go on my bike when I can. 

Luna had a "Pup day" she was just getting in to trouble, eating the plants that have bean brought in for winter, my vase of flowers too. I had to sort out some parcels for pick up, while at the door she ate my chocolate biscuits (not good for dogs at all). Not content with that she found a chocolate sweet and ate that too plus the wrapper.  All this while I was trying to clean up. A lot of parcels delivered today only one for us though. We take in parcels for others.

Well November gone nearly Christmas now. Not too bad a month for me apart from my reaction to the jabs. A fair bit of pain but I try not to dwell on it and just get on with it. Hope things are not too bad with you and you are coping well. 

All the best to you and enjoy your Christmas. 

Love Gill. 



 October 1st

Lliam my Nephew is doing ok. Lincoln hospital panicked a bit over his burns. There are bad but as bad they first thought.  As far as they can see he will not need skin graphs. He was very lucky that his friend pulled off his t-shirt and doused him with water. This could have bean so much worse. Lliam saved his face by turning the other way when he realised what was happening. All the best Lliam and recover fast. I know he will not like being off work one bit.


Nice walk on the common with Luna, we saw some of our friends and some new ones as well. Luna loves meting people, friends or not. Went on a bike ride today to see if my bike is ok. The puncture  has bean mended and every thing was good. All ready for Thursday and Pilates.  My wrist is painful and swollen with spasms and  pain, plus electric shocks. I am sure  RSD has stuck its nose in again as the other wrist I broke (2019) was like it. Not as painful though. I think there might be more to it. I am having a call from the Doctor ( November 1st) I saw last time when my plaster was taken off.  I am not able to do as much knitting as I would like, as my wrist spasms up all the time. Paul is cleaning the bathroom, something I spent two hours doing a few days ago, and hurt a lot after. Because he sanded the door down inside the house instead of outside, it messed it up again. Complete waste of my time and effort on my part.   


Luna was awake at six thirty scratching the door and crying. I thought she would sleep more as bean awake since nine PM last night. She did not settle when I left her last night. She had two walks as well yesterday.Nothing seems to tire her out, or maybe she gets too tired. I did get to Pilates though and enjoyed it very much.Preety much the same as before corvid. A lot of people who went to the last sessions were there and a few new faces. They were pleased to see me. My bike went well and I got up Canwick hill, with electric power and peddling. Rained a bit going but fine coming home. Its around ten mile plus round trip.


Last night I slept down stairs on the settee I am so fed up of coming up and down the stairs. Not getting hardly any sleep less then normal and that's not a lot. Luna slept well, I thought when I turned off the light she would jump up on the settee, no she did not and stayed in her basket all night. Being doing a bit more knitting made a bobble hat to go with a jacket I made sometime this year.  Took me three attempts to get a bobble that was good enough.

Bobble hat to go with the jacket I knitted for Meadow my Niece.


Went with Paul to get some cupboard doors, hinges, and  nobs that we are replacing. They doors are thick with varnish, this time they are going to be waxed instead, hopefully by me. Luna and I had a good long walk on the common, she is getting a very confident little pup. 


I have now finished off the baby set I am making for Willow; Lliam and Fiona's baby.

Hope she likes it.

Next are things for Christmas presents. I have quite a  bit to do but its whether my wrist will let me. The knitting I am doing now is on circle needles so I think its a bit kinder on my wrists. Still I can only do a bit at a time. 


Pilates today. It's damp and cold but at least I did not get caught in the rain I was home by then. I did well and managed some things like arms up and swings that I could not do be for covid. My arms were just too painful back then from the RSD. Paul was here when I got back, he was not needed at the hospital volunteering. Very tired for the rest of the day but a nice tired after doing something I like, Pilates. 


A rest day or so I thought. Went out in the garden and decided to do some of the pulling up the dead bits and just general garden tidy. Going well till it rained but I got a lot of it done. Saved seeds for next year as well. Came in and did a bit more knitting instead.


First frost of the year, when I was out side last night there was no sign of frost, so must have turned a lot colder later. Sunny later and warm in the sun but cold wind out of it. I know it was cold on the common. 


I have bean having trouble with one of my tablets for the last few weeks, 100MG  (TEGRETOL)  CARBAMAZEPINE - not being able to get them  being told the chemist they have got them, not got them not able to get them, being offered liquid instead then tablets again 200MG  I only had a few tablets left and need them for FACIAL NEURALGIA and these help very much.

Paul took  the old doors and other bits to the skip. I did a bit more in the garden so not much more to do now looks good as tidy now. Paul took all Lindsay's bits to her house that have bean in our shed. Also the Sylvanias that have bean here three years. 


I had a call from the chemist saying that I have bean prescribed 200 mg tablet of TEGRETOL CARBAMAZEPINE . I could have cried I thought it was all sorted out. I told her they are too small to be cutting them in half and the liquid was prescribed for me last week. She said she would sort it and ring me back later or tomorrow.


Did two hours of ironing, sheets plus clothes. Very tired  today bean quite busy this last week. No phone call from Doctors or Chemist. 


I called the chemist to see what they had come up with and was told it was all in order, and she was stood there with the liquid in her hand. They had put a bit in a separate bottle for some reason instead of a bigger bottle she said. At least it was all sorted or was it? I hope so. I did not go to Pilates today not feeling the best very tired, when its getting close to my B12 injection (31st). I can feel very drained as if it has not quite the same affect or it it just me? Other people who have them have said the same thing. I think the hand pain is getting to me. I can knit, but not for long. I do not move my left hand when knitting, but still get a lot of spasms down it which are very painful and don't know when to stop. 


A lot of rain has fallen and the Sincil Bank is very high. I think it will go over some time soon. A lot of houses have bean flooded and people have had to move out. I know the under ground streams on the common are full and making mini rivers down the slopes and collecting in big puddles in a lot of places. Luna gets very wet and muddy. I need to get her a coat, she is so skinny so it will have to be a very slim one. We did not go out today as the rain hardly stopped. The trees are getting bare and the common is dieing off.  Soon it will look very bare and cold. I have bean told there are a lot of small deer on there and have bean seen by a lot of people.  I have not seen them as yet.


The river is very high and can be seen from our house. My friend Debbie lives on the river  bank and is around two feet away from the river at the moment. She is not too bother as it has happened before and has bean higher.


Doing things in the  garden very wet but things need doing and tiding up. Usually I would have put plants in the green house for winter. The greenhouse now is not mine so no do. Weather it can be used again we will have to wait and see, if they use it or I can again. I cut through the little lights that we put up for Summer. Obviously they did not work after that. I tried to mend them but could not. My hands were like I had on boxing gloves again. Also I have tried to get rid off the rust marks caused by the chairs on the patio. I tried lemon juice and bicarbonate soda this helped a bit and I think it will fade with time. 


Cleaning upstairs, a good clean, moving things and putting the winter quilts on as colder now. Went into town later to get a Birthday present for Tracy. I got her a very nice jumper and I think she will like it. Also a few more gifts for Christmas presents. I did quite well in a short time I was there.


Paul took me to Pilates as rain pouring down. A good session and I managed things that I could not  previously do. I did a load of squats and got down very low.  


Rest day as a bit tired today. Luna got very wet on the common as she was looking for Rory who kept wandering off. She needs a coat like I have already said. She stood there at the crossing shaking and was very wet. When we get home she gets dried off and we sit there with her wrapped in her soft towel. After a around an hour or so and a cup of tea later for me, a biscuit for Luna and she is raring to go again. I think I over did the squats at Pilates as muscles are tight in the top of my legs. 


Andrew and I went to "Pets at Home"  to get Luna a coat. We tried loads on but she is very skinny so not a lot fitted her. Luna walked most of the way and back only carried near a busy road called Tritton road. She was very tired when we got back and had a good sleep. She had already had a good walk in the morning. I think she probably walked around four miles in total maybe more. 


Luna wore her coat for the first time and got compliments from a few people who saw her. Debbie said she looked very cute, and she does. She likes it as well and does not try to get it off. The coat is very light and waterproof its a 3 peaks one so good quality. She felt nice and cosy when I took her coat off and a lot drier too.

She thinks she is cool.

I finished off the garden now and trimmed next doors roses like I used to do for Karol. The new people are hopping to move in next month. Bit more knitting later, the blanket, and two head bands, to keep ears warm instead of a hat. These are going be for Jamie-Lee, my  Granddaughter, and Emmie, who I used to look after two doors away be for they moved.


Had my B12 injection  this hurt but only for a little while an hour or so. I am hopping this will make me feel a lot better with more energy .

Andrew is wearing the hoodie that I knitted him, and it looks good I am pleased with it. Whether I would make another adult one I am not too sure, as it took a lot of doing. When you are used to making little baby ones its a big jump up in size.  

Andrew in his hoodie.

And a few bonus photos of Luna to end the blog:


Luna and Andrew. Taken in September

Another month gone and Winter is here and it's cold now. The common has changed a lot and will change more as the year comes to the end. It's bean a painful month and tiring too, that's not going to change at all.

All the very best to you all. Love Gill


September 2nd.

On the common with Luna, she decided it would be fun not to come back, when I called her to put on her lead. Told her off and finally got her ready to go home, she is very fast and to her everything is a game. Rest day today as tired from yesterday's gardening. Later the dog next door was barking, the family have gone on holiday and someone is supposed to be looking after him. He barked from the moment they went hardly stopping. At times he had a rest, poor dog, he must have bean exhausted. He upset Luna as well. Why have a dog if you can not make proper arrangements for him. When we see them we will ask what was arranged for the dog. 


A bit better night than lately with Luna. Going to be a hot day again. Going to do a bit more in the garden later. The dogs family came back around ten pm. A long time for a dog to be on its own. I am just pleased they are back. 


Luna was better at coming back on the common today. She comes back every other time but as soon as its lead time she does not listen. She even got a treat from my friend which she enjoyed very much, her first from a another person. Paul spoke to next door family and they said he was being looked after by a an elderly parent. She was deaf that explains the night, but not during day, as she would see him. Usually he only barks when on his own which I think, he was a lot. Any way they are back now and its there dog not mine


Dull to start with then quite hot. Heavy air probably a storm later hopefully. My wrist, the one I broke is very painful spasms and just pain. I think this could be RSD more and more as time goes on. Very warm at night never dropped below 20C. I was even warm and I am usually cold even in the summer. 


Happy Birthday Tommy-Lee, seventeen and Jamie-Lee,eleven. We are seeing them tomorrow as they have plans today. Luna on the common was wild, you would not think she had so little sleep last night.


Saw the grandchildren in the afternoon and Tommy-Lee's girlfriend who I had not previously met. Very preety and petite. Also saw there new puppy, a Border Collie called Bonnie. She was hot so did not have a lot to do with us. Lindsay said she is sleeping at night as well, being in Lindsay's room I think makes a huge difference to a Bonnie. I have said I will not take Luna upstairs as it will not be safe for me.

Went to see my friend Jenny, she is doing well. She has a two seater and three seater settee that she no longer wants as a new one is on its way. Paul took measurements but I think it will be too big we could have the big one but Paul said two or none. She also gave us loads of computer things that her late husband used to use, plus other things. Thank you very much Jenny good to see you. 


Slept in the front room so when Luna cried I just shouted to her "bed time go to sleep" I think it worked but, I said it lots of times. Cleaning up today got it all done apart from the dining room. A neighbour had arranged to have a parcel delivered here, as she would be out. Where did they try to deliver it-again? her  house of course. 


My friend Joy came to see me today. She brought sausage rolls, plus a packet of treats for Luna. This is the first time Joy has seen her and she thought she was lovely. Her nephew has got a pup around the same age as Luna, it's a Great Dane; yes quite a lot bigger. 


Sorting out a few cupboards, you know things you keep just in case then weeks later get rid of them. Chinese tubs which Paul thinks we should have loads of. We now have around ten just in case. The cupboards now look a lot better and you can see what we have got. 


A very wet night and a storm as well. Luna was awake every hour not sure if she knew I was in the front room or the storm upset her. I am going to sort out the knitting cupboard later to see what wool I have. I will soon start the Christmas gifts I am making for family. 


Pilates is back on again 21st not online, like during COVID and after but in the hall like it used to be. I had a choice of sit mostly down or what I used to do a long time ago on a mat. I have decided on the sit down one as later time and I think my body will cope better with this. I have a ten mile round trip on my bike hopefully. There is a bus but that means a half hour walk as it does not come down the high street. I hope my wrist will be ok so I can use my bike. Paul put two new tubes on it so it should go well, all downhill from here on.  I am looking forward to Pilates.   


During the night Luna somehow got upstairs to outside Andrews room, he is up two flights and she sat outside his door. She does not come down on her own, and needs to be carried. She must have cried but no one heard her, why she did not bark I do not know. I then probably would have heard her and every one else as well. She has a big bark for a little dog. I thought I had not heard her during the night and she was having a good one. I still woke up my self quite a few times. Luna is very tired and was upset earlier. I did not take her on the common, it rained a bit and she was just too tired and slept a lot of the day. Hopefully she will not go upstairs in the middle of the night again. 


I thought Luna would not sleep at night, but she did for four hours. For her this is good, when I heard her around six am, I got up and took her out on the grass, she had a wee. Luna then slept till nearly eight am. Good walk on the common, the mornings are beginning to get a bit colder now. Tried to keep Luna awake so if tired she would sleep better Did she no, less than last night. Awake three times then up at six thirty. 

Going to Pilates or that was the plan, another flat tyre there must be something in the outer tyre causing this. Went into town instead to get Paul something for his Birthday next week. 


Colder today 11C felt cold on the common too, I had my gloves on.We saw Mary and Rory, Mary said she was cold. Bit of knitting but wrist and fingers are painful today so not much got done. 


Luna and I saw a friend that had not seen Luna at all. She thought Luna was lovely. She has an cocker-poo, and a German shepherd dog, she is old now and does not get on the common as much and was at home. Bit of a rest day for me. I say that but did over an hour and half ironing. Sheets and mostly Paul's things I stopped for rests so my wrists did not get sore. Bit more knitting of  the yoke of mint green baby cardigan I am making. Seems I have bean making this for ages. 

Went to get a few things for the bathroom from Wickes so Luna was left on her own for a while. When  we got back she had jumped the board across the dining room door twenty six inches high. She is only twelve inches high herself.

Indian for tea/super. Andrew and I went to pick it up as only down the road. We saved around five pound that way. 


Happy Birthday Paul- He liked the things I got him and other things he got. Went to get my tablets on my bike to test it, all seems fine but the brakes need more adjustment. My Sister in law came round to see Paul to give him a card and presents. She gave me a big bar of chocolate for making the little jackets for her to give to Fiona and Lliam for baby Willow.  

Lindsay and Jamie-Lee came round for tea, a Chinese, not from our local one as its closed today. Andrew and I did not think this was as good as very bland. Tonight I am going up to bed as staying down  is not doing a lot of good as I think Luna wants to be in there with me. I did think it helped to start with as she did not get stressed before I heard her. 


Cleaning up a bit but Paul is doing things in the bathroom and making a mess so not worth doing too much. Football match tonight - West ham V Lincoln. Paul is going so is Tracy who supports West Ham. A man got her a ticket right at the front so she was well pleased. West ham won 1-0 but Lincoln had a goal disallowed, offside. Both Paul and Tracy said Lincoln had the better match and should have won.


Pilates try again as my electric bike should be ok now. I biked along on the flat then started to go up hill, a big hill. Power seemed to be judder and no speed. First thought was the battery as I have two of them. This was the older one but it had never let me down before. I got off and decided to walk up the hill pushing my bike but it was too much. I thought if I could just get up the hill I could get to Pilates as flat from there on. No- too much for me as mine is a very heavy bike to push, not to ride though. I turned round and went back home. I was so disappointed another day missed. Paul sent Jo a message and I will ring her later. 

After I had cooled off, as I was so hot my back was wet. I looked at my bike and could hardly be live what I saw another flat tyre. I felt around the outside of the tyre and found a bit of glass. Could this be what has caused all the problems? As for the loss of power this could have bean the tyre going down and making it harder for the motor to get grip fine on the flat but too much on a big hill. After Paul has looked again I will try it on the hill. I just hope it's not the electrics. I hope Jo understands and still keeps my place. Try again next week. 


A good night with Luna two thirty till seven ish. Paul has mended the puncture so hopefully that's all it is.

We got a message today from sister in law Bev that Lliam my Nephew had bean burnt with hot tar while working. Not sure how bad yet, he could need skin grafts. He has bean transferred to Queen Medical Nottingham from Lincoln County hospital. I will update when I know. 

Well not a lot to say this month Luna hopefully is getting better at nights. The rest of the time she is mostly good. She enjoys the walks we have on the common and is meeting lots of new friends. 

Hope things are good with you all all the best love Gill.
