Whenever someone uses the word "lazy", what they actually mean is "doing other things than what I want you to do". It's the peak of control-freak culture.

I’ve finally put the summer duvet on the bed, I really need to get a decent nights sleep. Not wake up at 2am again.

23 years ago, I was lucky enough to get a kidney transplant. It has changed my life for the better. Only visit hospital for regular tests, not three times a week for over three hours. Thank you to my donor family.

Just discovered TopCashback & now disappointed that I’ve missed out on all the grocery shopping money back over last couple of years.

1. Able to have a pyjama day, after a bad night. 2. Libby the Library app for supply of new books. 3. Lovely company in my husband.

Damp morning, clearing up later. Do I go into town for a wander round, or stay local then walk in the park. Will decide after coffee

If my husband lived on his own, I’m sure he’d never open a window. The place would be very stuffy.

Having a kidney transplant, seeing dermatology (long term steroids for transplant), now type 2 diabetic, I agree to any hospital appointment when phoned. They rang back just now, I shouldn’t be on the breast reconstruction surgery list tomorrow so it’s cancelled. I need the hernia surgery clinic lol (incisional due to kidney associated surgeries).

Lovely friendly board game café discovered in North London yesterday. Nice staff, big selection of games. I'm not sure if it's for public play but they had a copy of Kingdom Death Monster laid out on a table!

Great hot chocolate and chips too.

Recommended. RT, if you want to help out in other ways.

I don’t like the summer, my skin dries out & feels really uncomfortable. Could be the long-term steroids I’m on, but roll on autumn and winter.

We have thunder and heavy rain here. Love a good storm. - no pets, so no worries.

Just discovered that I now live in a city! Bangor, N Ireland has gained new status, thanks to the jubilee

Sooo.... People using the Mastodon app, how/where do you find your local and federated timelines, or your direct messages, or lists???

Trying to increase the distance I walk, especially after a couple of days indoors - weather yesterday was just too wet to venture out. Beautiful today so just home. Done 3.9 miles.

Ask for help, even if it's with something small, when you need it.

I’m looking for advice. Since I’m on long term steroids, I ‘should’ be using sun cream, the highest factor possible on my face. Any I’ve tried I’ve found really dry my skin. Any suggestions for more moisture without losing effect would be great!

A letterbox encased within the wall of a building in Donaghadee. I just love the variety of styles of boxes in the UK.

ok not the usual, some may call them weeds. I think they are beautiful
