I'm doing well. Thanks for asking. Where do you live? I'm in Florida, USA.
It's almost 11:00 in the morning here, and so far, I've seen Women's Soccer and Basketball, then the Equestrian competition, and now I'm watching Women's Volleyball. The horses were so beautiful in the Equestrian competition. I would love to learn how to ride!
I was supposed to go to a waterpark this morning, but it's raining, and they always close the park when there are thunderstorms nearby due to the lightning hazard. Hope you have a relaxing day!
My sister is vacationing in Scotland right now! She, her husband, and their two children flew into Edinburgh and drove up the east coast and around to Loch Ness, which is where her daughter spent her 9th birthday. I'm sure they went right through Peterhead!
She called me a week ago, and they were having an amazing time. She said it is beautiful there, and the people are so nice. They've been visiting a lot of castles. How lucky you are to live there!
I hope you're having a wonderful time with your boys tonight!
hi cecilia, yeh 4 boys do keep me hopping, joshua will be 9 n sept, harvey and jacob 6 in oct and noah will be 2 this month. Noah is the hardest work out of them all, we thought it could not be possible after the twins but he is a lot of work, i heard someone say the youngest always is.
Deal on the house swap!!!! lol wouldn't mind that one bit. I also would not be surprised if the kids spotted nessy!!! it's a kids thing! i used to do it too, when my parents would take us camping in Pitlochry, nessy always popped out of the loch to say hello. !! kids imaginations are wonderful aren't they???
Looking forward to the nice weather in Florida, the kids can go to Disney land, Noah would love that, he realy enjoys the mickey mouse club house, its a cartoon here don't know if id the same in the US. anyway nice to hear from you again, hope you are well. xx
hi cecilia im so glad your sis and a fab time. I prefer Inverness to Aberdeen purely for the scenery, did she go into Drumnadrochit? that is a beautiful place, I am 100% positive i would love USA, once the kids are a bit older we are going to travel the US.
Sorry its a short reply feeling terrible today, can't even stand straight, imm bent over to try and ease the pain, already spoke to a doc he thinks i can increase my pain meds on days like this, ive also had other meds increased! I think i had dinner too late last night, and it was a chinese takeaway, so its maybe made me worse, had no time to cook last night between shopping for new school uniforms for the kids, getting the twins bags ready for their little trip with my sis, then the grocery shopping, so opted for a take out!! i should have had a sandwhich,. I am also very tired today!! no idea why......
anyway hope you are well. take care
Hi Cecilia, I have been keeping a food pain and BM diary since 24th July, changed my eating habits already. Cut down down on veg, not having my veg with a bit of a bite anymore, i had checked out low fibre diets few weeks ago so i made the changes then. Changed to lighter bread, etc...... i dont drink alcohol but i do have a cup of coffee in the morning, may have to go back to decaf. I do eat cheese every day as i am worried on my nutrient etc.,. intake, I have an appt with a dietician now in sept, but i am following a low fibre diet now. I check all products in supermarket for fibre content, and go for the lower option. I think I get myself worse by stressing over things. Just have to wait and see what the dietician says.
How is the hurricane situation? i have been watching the news but not seen anything as of yet. Hope you are well.
i bet you are so relieved Cecilia!!! I know i would be.
Unfortunately it is not always mild cheese, but at the same time it is not overly mature, i don't like cheese too strong but a wee bit stronger than mild. I know i should probably change. I am sore today and last night for dinner i made mac and cheese and that was a mature cheese. After having to eat a high fibre all my life i am finding it quite difficult to cut out foods. especially oats, i love them but they are doing me no good. Auch well I am sure i will learn one of these days.
As for thinking about you, I always think about my friends xx
hi Cecilia, how are you? i am actually still not bad, couple of grumbling pains, now and again, but manageable. i have not tried the larger oats yet, wee bit nervous about that, i don't want to set myself back. The fine oats before bed have been helping so today i have just had some for breakfast too. So i will see if that makes a difference. under a bit of stress too as the builders quote has come in at just over $10,000 yep i about pooped my pants there and then. With prices already up on everything, i dont know how we will get the money for the vital repairs. I suppose we will have to get a loan. But it is so much money!!!! the full of the gable end of my house needs repointed. arrgh. just have to bite the bullet and get it done. Otherwise the probs will get worse. how were your sister's photos?
