A New Week dawns

 

 It always seems to be Monday - no sooner does Monday night arrive than Monday morning of the next week arrives.   Does anyone else find that?   It was understandable in the days when I taught in school - week-ends were precious and so they flew by;  but now all days are alike it is still the same

I have just had a Zoom with friends W, P and D - as usual it is good to catch up with what they have all been doing.   I hear what they have all been doing from here in my little bungalow where I rarely venture out other than a walk round the block or a trip to the hairdresser.   Tomorrow is a trip to the hospital to see the Vascular Surgeon (I am going by taxi rather than hospital transport) - apparently a necessity after a broken hip.   As I wear compression stockings every day and my legs seem more or less normal I don't expect I shall have to have any treatment - but time will tell.

At Book Group this morning we discussed Never Let me Go by Ishiguro.   Thank you Margaret Butterworth for telling me about the interview on U Tube with Ishiguro.   It was fascinating - do watch it if you have read the book.    I find listening to writers about books they have written so interesting - they open up so many aspects you haven't thought of.

Warm, sunny day here with a coolish breeze - maybe a faint suggestion of Autumn not being far away.   I shall go and forage for something for tea now - I will report in tomorrow after my hospital visit.

Good luck for your hospital visit. Interesting weather here today - a lively little thunderstorm as I was cooking my evening meal. One clap of thunder made me jump! Lots of rain, but that will please local gardeners. I hope I don't get soaked taking my walk tomorrow morning.

Best wishes for your doctor checkup. I'm guessing you'll turn out just fine! Yes, I love author interviews too. I remember watching an interview with the horror writer, Dean Koontz. Come to find out he's a staunch Catholic... who would have thunk?! *haha* ~Andrea xoxoxo

I understand what you say about the days flying by! It seems like each week goes so fast that it's almost hard to keep up with it. I'll be thinking of you when you go see your Vascular Surgeon. I hope everything checks out well for you. You are so good at taking care of yourself and getting your exercise I imagine the doctor will be pleased. Enjoy the remainder of your day!

The older I get, the faster the time goes. Best wishes with your appointment. I have never read Never Let Me Go, but would like to do so. I saw a movie version that was quite good.

Love,
Janie

Good luck with the doctor visit! You appear to be doing quite well to me - hope the doctors agree! Have a nice day!

You've reminded me of a song I loved 'Who knows where the time goes '- it spoke to me in the past and even more so now!

The weeks seem very short these days. And it's not like I am very productive and run out of time.

Best wishes for tomorrow.

Margaret Butterworth said...

Did you know that Ishiguro has written a new novel "Klara and the Sun", which is said to be a kind of sequel to "Never let me Go"?

Librarian said...

Yes, time flies by and maybe particularly so right now, when I would like summer to stay a little longer instead of that almost autumnly feeling in the mornings and evenings.
I hope all goes well with your hospital appointment.

Hope the hospital visit goes well without too much waiting.

My weeks fly by too - frighteningly fast

Its chill here in Tod in the morning though an expected heat wave about the middle of August? Good luck with the hospital visit.

Thank you everyone - I will report back.

I find the days fly by too. I also have to wear compression socks as I have Vascular insufficiency. By about 6pm. I have to take them off as they cut into my swollen legs from walking around and gardening during the day. I just want to say you are an inspiration to me. I am not sure I have ever commented here before but I read your and Johns's blog every day. I really enjoy hearing about England and Wales. Thank you,
Cheers,

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
