What is it about us and feeling better for having the washing outside? It always makes me smile, though I got mine out, too, today. First chance in a while.

I had some good news, albeit yesterday, now - my blood test came back with positive results. 

Sometimes, it's the small things that matter.

My daughter will be back from spending her 3rd time at summer camp in Canada.

Hiyah Jo..yes, I'm back lol and apart from feeling tired and a bit sore I feel absolutely fine. Appetite is still a problem but its early days yet I suppose. Yes, keyhole.. I was so happy to hear thats what theyd managed to do because at various appointments I was told they didnt think theyd be able to, what with the size of it etc, and I get to keep my spleen which is good. So, its feet up for me for awhile

Love and hugs

My 3 good things

1. The latest rainwater, which drowned the garden and turned the path into a lake, had all gone when I got up this morning. Bit of a shame in a way, was going to get a couple of ducks

2. Was a great day for getting the washing dry outside on the line

3. My grandson took an interest in one of the Codeword puzzles I had already started and after I'd explained the rules he had a go at finishing it

Love and hugs
