well i was feeling amazing so i started decorating, my rather large hall. 1st day scraped the walls, 2nd day undercoat on half the woodwork. 2nd day rest of the undercoat. 3rd 1st coat of gloss, 4th day rest of the gloss, 5th day wallpapering till 11pm, 6th day painting gave up early back legs and arms were sore not my tummy. Rested up yesterday too, cos i was feeling realy lethargic, pale faced, spot on cheek, blotchy skin. Today i am still exhausted. My tummy is rather swollen and uncomfy, and i still have deco to finish. Have i overdone it? getting myself too excited at feeling good, i just hope i have not set myself back. i haven't felt good in years too!!

i think you are right flchurchlady. Because i had decided to do no decorating today i thought i should at least do the house. Ending getting vacuum cord wrapped aroung my lamp table and yanked it cos i never looked where it got stuck. Well its fair to say the pretty lamp i had bought only 4 months ago, didn't make it.  so i thought maybe i should just sit and do nothing, furniture is safer that way lol yeah

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!

hi Im happy you are well, shame about the water park. I am in a town called peterhead, very north east of scotland, it is also raining here, has been all day. I am relaxing now, thanx, my husband is away to pick our children up from their grandparents. They were away for a week, as it is near the end of their summer holidays now. That is why i was able to decorate too, as the kids were not here, don't like them being around the fumes. So i am quite excited about them coming home i have realy missed them. It has actually been just me in the house during the day all week, as hubby was working. But i have missed my 4 boys like mad. But they shoul be back home in around 4 hours as they have just left their granparents house. So excited xx

Amanda,

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!

:-)  Cecilia

Amanda, we could swap homes sometime! You could vacation on the beach in Florida, and I could go nessy hunting! :-) My brother has twin boys, too. I admire you for having twins and two more. Four boys will keep you hopping! That's cute that they always find the monster at Loch Ness. I wouldn't be surprised if my sister's children tell me they saw it, too.

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 yeah cool

Amanda,
My sister returned from Scotland last night. I asked if they went to Peterhead, and she said that they spent two days in Aberdeen and then drove over to Inverness, so they didn't make it up there. She wanted me to tell you that they loved castle row in Aberdeen. :-)
 
I'm the youngest in my family, and from the stories I've heard, I was the wild child in the bunch, too, so I think your theory is correct! We have Mickey Mouse cartoons here, as well. I think you would all enjoy Disney. It's fun for the whole family!
 
I live in Southwest Florida, near Sanibel Island. It's over 4 hours from Disney, but we have beautiful beaches!
 
Stay well,
Cecilia

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

* Milk and yogurt (usually limited to 2 cups per day), mild cheese, cottage cheese
* Margarine, butter, vegetable oil, mayo, plain gravies and dressings
* Broth and strained soups from allowed foods
* Pulp free juices

Foods to avoid
* Whole grain breads and pastas, corn bread or muffins, products made with whole grain products, bran, seeds, or nuts
* Strong cheeses, yogurt containing fruit skins or seeds
* Raw vegetables
* Tough meat, meat with gristle
* Crunchy peanut butter
* Millet, buckwheat, flax, oatmeal
* Dried beans, peas, and legumes
* Dried fruits, berries, other fruits with pulp or seeds

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. turn

Amanda,

That's good that you know that a high fiber content can be rough on the bowel. Mild cheeses are fine, so enjoy! :-)

We are doing well here. The storm did not strengthen into a hurricane and made landfall 40 miles south of here just a few minutes ago, which is good for us, since we'll be on the weaker side of the storm. It's turning out to be a big, windy rainstorm, and we still have power, so I'm happy about that. Thanks for thinking of us.

Take care,
Cecilia

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

Awww, thanks! I've also always eaten whole grains, oats, and fresh salads, and it's difficult to choose white bread instead. But, if it's better for my small intestine, I guess I have to change. My husband is happy, because he loves white bread!! :-)

Amanda,
I'm so glad you're doing well! I hope the larger oats agree with you. I'm feeling much better, too. I worked full days Wednesday through today and even went to my one-hour exercise class after work on Thursday and didn't have to stop and rest.

I spoke with my sister today, and she took over 700 pictures with her digital camera in Scotland! I'm going to spend next weekend with her in Tampa and look forward to seeing the photos then.

Hope you have a great weekend!

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 smhair 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?
