I have been feeling a little under the weather these last few weeks.
Over the last 6 months approx I've had recurring stomach problems. I thought perhaps it was stomach flu or similar that hadn't cleared up properly. However towards the end of February it came back again and rather more severe this time so very reluctantly I decided to speak to my doctor who sent me for some tests. Last Monday my doctor phoned me and gave me the results of those tests which were really good so my doctor said all but one was negative; Covid test included. The results of that one test she said wasn't so good she said she believed it could be a sign of intestinal inflammation. Mind you that doesn't surprise me a lot considering the ups and downs I have had with my tummy lately! Therefore she is sending me to the specialist... what joy!... Not! This Monday she phoned me back to tell me what had been arranged with the specialist. Due to clinic conditions at present (Covid) the specialist doesn't want to see me face-to-face as yet but wants me to repeat that one test again on 8th April. I have been given an anti-inflammatory diet to follow and I hope that will reduce the problem and the test results will be negative. If not I have to go for other tests to find out more.
I got fed up with this hat which wasn't going right and I have frogged it! I always feel irritated after frogging a make...sigh!
We were going to go up into the mountains this Sunday to see the almond trees in flower but I woke up with my stomach grumbling again and didn't feel like doing much at all so we went for a stroll around the No Name park(parque sin nombre). Strange name right...but everyone is calling it that because the council still haven't given it a name and it was opened about 5 years ago! Bureaucracy is so slow here. It has been awhile since we went there and it was a little dry and sad the last time we went but now it is looking really lovely. It is situated down under the Port flyover very near the San Gabriel beach.
It is right beside a very noisy road which does not deter the birds at all as they were merrily serenading the coming of spring.:-)
There is even a mini waterfall and I could hear some frogs croaking in the pond.
The play area. There were quite a few people stretched out on the grass enjoying the mild weather.
It is like a haven tucked away from the busy,bustling city.
RAOCKS (Random Acts of Crochet Kindness)
I have been crochet doodling again A Little Easter chick just hatched...ready to go out tomorrow smile searching.
I think I have the start of spring fever as I am getting that urge again to clean,patch up and renovate things in the home!
I have started by digging out a pot of the paint that was used on the walls in my daughter's bedroom which is really the spare room and has been for years now but in my mind it continues to be my daughter's room. I always make sure I keep a pot of paint of the paint used in the different rooms so I can patch up any scratches or marks that have appeared overtime. The paint has weathered well in that room but all the same I have noticed there is an area beside the door which is grubby and soap and water wont get rid of it. A couple of swipes with a paint brush will :-)
