Out and About

Today is another cold and miserable day. Gosh, it's drizzling now.
Phew, saw the bus when I turned the corner but then the driver recognised me thus he waited. Kum sia kum sia.
The ride was uneventful.
Took another bus service to another town, venturing out in advance to locate where is the hospital as I have an appointment to see the consultant next month.
That in itself is a separate story. I have to write to the Forum, STI, but not sure whether will they print the letter online.
Oh Lord, please calm my heart for the page on the computer keeps jumping .....

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Here I am, about to step out, bracing for the cold. Snug as a bug in a rug aka humpty dumpty. :))
Hope your day is better. Cheers

My first Post

Morning folks and greetings from cold England.
Very excited, for here I am, trying to have a proper blog.
A blog was created about two years ago but I am not able to recall
the name nor password.:((
Hmmmm, why am I such a dudette with computers? Tried uploading
photos of a dish but it did not appear in sequence.
Gonna take a walk to have some fresh air. Hopefully by then, there is
a quick solution to my problem.
Have a safe and wonderful day.
Cheers
