Bright and early.

Up with the lark this morning (I haven't heard one since I left the farm).   In this wintry weather and with the temperature as low as it is, I suspect I have a chilblain on my left big toe.   Having never had one I don't really know but it does wake me early in the morning with a burning sensation on a red patch.   So this morning, when this happened at six o'clock I decided to get up.   The central heating was only just beginning to come on so it can't have been all that cold here overnight and I opened the front door to look out.   There had been no more snow since I went to bed at around half past ten last evening.

I content myself in the knowledge that in another three weeks it will be 'magical' March.   In the meantime Si's wonderful aconites in Newark (surely the best show in the country) are no doubt hidden under the snow and we are in the throes of The Beast from the East again.   No walking along the path with Priscilla today.   I shall watch the film on iplayer which Rachel has recommended - 'The White Crow'- and keep snug and warm.

Has anyone else noticed how quickly time flies when in Blogland?   It is already seven o'clock.   I am wondering whether or not J will get here this morning.  She lives at the top of a steep drive with a nasty bend in it and if it is icy she has to rely on a relative with a four wheel drive to collect her.   We shall see.   In the meantime I shall go and make my self a cup of tea and switch on my electric flames back up in the sitting room so that I have a bit of comfort before she comes.   If anything in the least bit exciting happens during the day I'll be back.

Incidentally, every time I try to click on comment when I put on a post I get a series of pictures of things like motor bikes or traffic lights and I have to click on them and click verify in order to get my comments to work.   Does anyone know how I can get rid of it please?

I suffered from chilblains on my ears as a child, and for some bizarre reason I have them back again this year! I am now hearing birdsong on my early walks... they must know something we don't.

Yes time really does fly when you are either writing a blog post or blog-hopping around blogland, I can lose hours, which is no real problem at the moment as long as I am warm and there are copious cups of coffee.

To get rid of the authentication box on your comments I'm guessing you need to go to your blog 'Settings' and see what system you have ticked to work. I've noticed in the past that leaving comments on your blog has necessitated having to tick the boxes where there are roads, or traffic lights or cars etc ... a strange game to have to play to leave comments, but then it disappears after a few days, so maybe it is not something you have done yourself.

Usually I just have to tick the box to 'prove I am not a robot' on your blog ... I'm not honest!!

Tom Stephenson said...

I got those identifications pictures once, and I cannot remember how I got rid of them. Maybe something in the dashboard. By the way, I never click on your 'I'm not a robot' CAPTCHA thing underneath and it always lets me comment. It doesn't work. Maybe you could get your son to come round and do a little tidying up on your computer? While he's there he could make it so that the comments had a 'reply' option to each one. That would make life easier for you - then again it might make you spend too much time on all the replies!

Librarian said...

A year or two ago (maybe even longer), I mentioned that problem with commenting on your blog here (in a comment!). Derek helped me - he said simply click on "Publish your comment" without even trying to click the pictures or the "I am not a computer" tick box. And as if by magic, I was able to comment again without all the hassle - just like Tom Stephenson said above me.

If you want to remove this feature permanently from your blog, you need to do so in your settings, as A Smaller Life said.

Hopefully, your carer can make it to you today.
Yes, blogland makes the time pass very quickly - sometimes I am mid-post when I realise I need to get to work NOW!

Rachel Phillips said...

These things come and go and usually don't stay long. I have the robot making an appearance on some blogs now too. I have ceased trying to change anything because they usually go away or can be just ignored completely.

Debby said...

I will let the learned souls make suggestions. I am not technical. However, as many have commented, I ignore the captchas and the I am not a robot. I don't have trouble commenting here.

Ellen D. said...

As a devoted reader of your blog, I am glad you are able to post so often but I do not know how you do it! Thanks for the trouble you go through to post your blog for us!

Bonnie said...

I hope you enjoy the movie Rachel suggested. I have not seen it but it does sound good. Stay warm today! It seems like everyone I talk to has very cold weather and snow. I guess winter decided to go out with a blast!

VC said...

I had them as a youngster and they itch like mad!

Anonymous said...

Chilblains are very itchy. I was always told as a child not to put my feet directly on the hot water bottle or that would cause them. You can buy something from the pharmacy to cure them or I read somewhere that dipping the offending digit in urine cures them! Your own I presume!

Bovey Belle said...

Must be the year for chilblains as my daughter has suddenly got one - first for years - but on exactly the same spot as she always had one in the past. I told her to wee on it and she wasn't at all impressed!

I hope you had a pleasant quiet day and got lots of reading done by the fire.

We have now reached the putting up pictures stage.

Heather said...

I used to get chilblains as a child - so uncomfortable. I think we've had our coldest day today - no snow apart from a handful of tiny halfhearted flakes, as yesterday. Hope your carer got through to you.
I am amazed at how quickly the days pass. Perhaps it is because we are all busy doing things to keep ourselves occupied!

Joanne Noragon said...

I am waiting for warmer weather so I can go outside myself. Keep warm.

Terra said...

Enjoy your tea and electric flames in your sitting room and stay warm. I don't know what chilblains are but they don't sound pleasant.

Debby said...

I would use a topical steroid to control the itching and a pair of socks. Give that a try before soaking them in urine...your own or anybody elses! Anonymous, you made me laugh out loud today!

Rachel Phillips said...

I don't think excitement is needed Weave. A quiet life is easier to cope with.

My health was horrible before I decided to try the Protocol Of taking Dr. Omola pure herbal mixture. I felt there was no hope for my health and I was to try the Protocol, thinking it wouldn’t work because I have visited so many hospital but same result. However, I was convinced by a Instagram friend to try the herbal medicine because I wanted to get rid of Herpes virus. The herbal mixture that was given to me was really quick and easy to take, within 2 week I was fully cured from Herpes. The herbal medicine really work and I will like to share this great doctor contact with you all email him dr.omolaherbalhome@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348118116254 you won't regret it, I promise.

I’m here to testify about what Dr. Omola did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Mary on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr. Omola on how he cured her from 5 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, Dr. Omola prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as Dr. Omola assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact Dr. Omola for help via dr.omolaherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp +2348118116254.

Hey, just want to take this opportunity to tell everyone about my experience with Dr Ozala concerning my Herpes type 1 and 2 which i have been diagnosed for 8 years ago until i saw this link: https://dr-ozala-herbal-product.jimdosite.com/ and a comment of a lady called Nora who claims to be cured from Herpes by Dr Ozala.
so i decided to take my chance with the doctor even when I had previous experience with Africans but I had no choice because I wasn't getting younger and my fiance broke up with me  in 2019 when he found out I was diagnosed with Herpes. so contacted Dr Ozala on his website and he told me that he has the cure to my health problem and he gave me his WhatsApp number: +2348156857280 and we talked and he asked me some personal questions which he later sent me the medicine and i followed his instructions for 11 days and went for a test which to my own surprise came out negative, i didn't believe my eyes, so i thanked Dr Ozala and waited for 8 months and i went to redo the test and found out that i was permanently cured from herpes type 1 and 2.
so i advice you all to get in touch with Dr Ozala and get cured permanently..
