Friday :)

Well I’ve had a different week. It’s been pretty ‘mundane’ but at least I’ve had chance to rest. And I mean proper rest. Not been able to do much of anything physically due to the sore knee. 

Yesterday I tried not taking any meds to see how the pain was. Even just pottering about the house, getting a drink and making my dinner ended up making it hurt by late afternoon, so I needed to take meds. I’m really not looking forward to going back to work as I know it is still going to hurt. Maybe a lot, maybe not. I don’t know… I am going to have to wait and see. 

I just hope that I can cope with it and work through another few weeks… I think this one is going to take me a while to physically get over it and yes, I have to be careful not to do it again. Although I can’t work out how I actually managed to go over on it in the first place. 😦 

Writing wise. Nada… I’ve had lots of time to think about it, but not do. My heads been so fuzzy on these pain meds I just haven’t been able to think enough to tackle anything. So I’m kinda depressed about that. I was hoping to have at least a chapter done by this week even without being in work. Not meant to be. So I’m a little behind. I need some more goals there for the next few weeks. 

Ep 5 of Best Friends is in editing still. 🙂 I know this is taking a little more time than the last few but this one is set in two different parts of the country so it’s to be expected. I can’t wait to see it though as the pics in the ice cream parlour look fantastic… 

Other projects are moving at a steady pace. I kinda feel like a plodding horse in that sense but it’s all good. Can’t rush anything. There would be no point. 

The weekend ahead is going to be much the same, apart from hubby will be here. I think we have to nip to liverpool tomorrow. I might actually try and drive for a bit. See how I cope. eek

I am going to tackle some edits tomorrow… I am, promise… lol

Sunday we’re supposed to have a friend coming to take a few of my fish. He’s wanted them since last year, not they’re bigger and fatter and temps are improving so he can pick which he likes the look of. 

I’m gutted in this respect. I like opening the tunnel flap and seeing them whoosh over to get their dinner. The more that go the less whoosing there is. And less faces to see. 😦 it’s sad but they are getting too big for their tank now, they need a nice new home. I’m very happy to let them go. 

Sanke is doing much better. All scrapes are clear… from both ponds. It’s been over 9 weeks now. 🙂 I’ve very pleased. 

There are however some increasing sets of problems being experienced by other koi keepers. We’re heading into spring now. The weather finally has started to get warmer and the parasites are out with a vengeance.  This is heart breaking because some are losing their prized fish. 😦 Not a good time of year really. I can only keep doing what i’m doing and try to offer my limited bits of advice or at least point them to someone who really can help them. 

Looking forward to a sunny nice weekend. Let’s hope it’s a nice one. Speak soon… 


Dawn x x 


Well what can I say. The sun is out and I can’t do anything.

Paul has gone off to Banks Car Booty. Which I would have enjoyed but the pain in my knee just isn’t going. Yesterday had to be the worst, although in the morning the swelling had gone down, by the afternoon it was right back out there. Took all evening soaking it in pain killers and a special ‘patch’ for it to ease. I just wish it would go away. The throbbing is kinda okay. But the not sleeping and wobbliness isn’t nice. Every time I stand it feels like my leg is gonna give out and I’ll be in a heap on the floor. It’s scary. 

Writing wise…. well haven’t been able to concentrate to do any editing. So, I’ve been reading instead. This has given me plenty of time for relaxing…. a couch potato I am. I hate being a couch potato… it’s  making me feel like a blimp. 😦 So, not only am I in pain, my heads battering me to death too. Depressed is not the word. 

I always try not to worry over money. We can cope, its not going to be a brilliant month end with me having time off but I guess it had to happen at some point. My body is only human and things happen. I’ll deal with that as it crops up. 


My fish is doing much better in the QT, he’s lively, his swelling has gone down. (hahah maybe I should get in there with them) and I totally believe he’s going to be right as rain in a few weeks. 🙂 Fingers crossed I’m going to be okay ‘this’ week. 

So more rest and recoup for me. In face I think I’ll head back to bed now. My eyes can’t focus. 

Have a great weekend all.  x x x


Speak soon.
