Granny is gearing up.

Hello All.

A short post.
I have a headache starting.
Have been getting headaches every morning when I wake up.
Now they are coming earlier.
I hate taking headache pills.
When I do,  the tiniest bump turns into a big red mark.
And I look as if I have a dreadful ailment.

We had a good day yesterday.
I was just contemplating getting out of bed when a friend phoned and invited us for a BBQ.
I had promised the old folk roast lamb for supper.
So I was in a bit of a quandary.
In the end I prepared everything and left instructions for the oven to be turned on.
And we went for a great lunch.
AND had a big supper.
My poor tummy.
there was quite a bit left over so supper was easy tonight.
And yummy.

Why am I gearing myself up?
Wendy’s staff are having a memorial service for her on Thursday.
I will leave after work on Wednesday and head for East London.
There is heavy rain forecast.
It should be a fun trip.
I plan to spend Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night with her partner.
And I shall come home on Saturday.
Anyway, I should have something interesting to blog about.

Oh yes, the little guy in the photo came down onto the table waiting for someone to give him a snack.
I am not really too fond of Butcher birds.
But this one was quite sweet.

They have a lovely garden.

I came home loaded with plants and fresh sage and rosemary.
Perfect for the lamb.

Now I am off to bed.



  1. I was just thinking about you when I got notification of your new blog post! LOL We’re on the same wavelength! 🙂

    Have a safe drive to East London; I know the memorial will be tough. But it’ll be good to spend time with Wendy’s partner, laughing over the good times and getting some good healing cries in too. I’ll be thinking of you, my friend.

  2. I wish my birds would come that close. After all that I do for them. And they come no where near me. Hugs for you and Wendy’s partner, I know it’s such a very sad time. I hope you have a safe trip and that your headaches will stop.

    • Thanks Linda..,.hopefully, they are just from stress.

  3. Have a safe trip and will be thinking of you all for the service.

    • Thanks so much Pussycat.

  4. Strange, you going to bed when it’s mid-afternoon here in the States LOL can never seem to time my reading with your writing…

    Safe travels as you pay your respects to your dear friend.

    p.s. wonder if you should try a different medication for your headaches?? that is a troubling reaction you seem to be having 😦

    • I Lisa…when you get old/older your skin gets much thinner…add a couple of asprin to the mix and Bob’s your uncle!

  5. Drive safely. You need to say goodbye to Wendy, take the opportunity to grieve properly

  6. Safe journey for the memorial, I will think of you on Wednesday evening it will probably be Thursday morning for you.

    • Thanks mar…I can’t get my head around the time difference…the service is at twelve on Thursday.

  7. Safe journey this weekend granny – time for healing and comfort for you and Wendy’s partner. I’ll be thinking of you . . .

    • Thanks Barb…am sure I will feel the positive vibes.

  8. I’m so glad you are going up to East London for the service. I hope the drive isn’t torturous. You will have a cell phone with you, I trust and hope. Perhaps I’m being a silly Canadian, but I want to know you are safe.

    Love you lots, Granny, and will be thinking about all of you.

    • Thanks Souldipper…yep…will have my cellphone and I shall stop along the way…need to get there fresh…want to cook up a storm for M.

  9. Have a good trip Granny, hope you can celebrate Wendy’s life and not feel too sad 🙂

    • Yes I like that Ruth…we will celebrate her.

  10. Wishing you a safe trip and a special time with Wendy’s partner remembering the good times.

    • Thanks so much Optie…will pop in tomorrow or Thursday.

  11. Hope your headaches are better soon.

    • Thanks maire…so far so good today!

  12. Poor Granny. I had headaches EVERY day for 3 weeks in NJ. Only on one side of my head ~ that had never happened before.

    When I got home, the “cluster headaches” took a hike. Hope yours do too.

    Safe travels. This time, please STOP when you need to pee. Don’t just cross your legs and keep driving. 😉

    • Hehehe Nancy…will widdle before I leave, I promise. Woke up with one this morning again but it has sure they are stress related.

  13. Love the photo.
