Meeting myself coming back!

Well, plenty of people advised me that I'd be busier in retirement than at work, and they were right!

I have no idea where the time has gone since my last post and that's because I'm so occupied with stuff that I don't have time to sit down and write up what's happening. The term meeting myself coming back seems to fit me to perfection just now.  However, I'm only here now because I'm in pain and can't sleep.  It's currently stupid o'clock and the painkillers haven't kicked in yet.  Sadly my hip is bad again, the effects of the injection having worn off after only a month.  It was a good month though, and one I enjoyed making the most of.

Because I've been a bit naughty with the painkillers over the last few months I figured I'd best get checked out at the doctors in case they'd upset my Chronic Kidney Disease.  I'm at a low level with that at a 3, but any fluctuations may occur any time so needs to be monitored.  I have a blood test for it tomorrow together with my annual thyroid check.  Harking back, my list of aches, pains and random ailments is getting longer.  It's no wonder I'm rattling with all the meds!  I just want to keep it all at bay and I can see this is going to be a battle into infinity.

While I type I've been listening to some ambient tunes to try and soothe the pain.  I've chosen this one to share with you as I've been quite a fan of Peter Gabriel over the years.  On that note, I'll bid you goodnight and try to sleep once more.

Keep smiling!
