Looking in a mirror

How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror?

I know some people spend a lot of time looking at themselves in a mirror but I am not one of them, the only times I find myself looking at myself in a mirror is when I am brushing my hair or putting make up.

Now when I wash my hands after I go to the toilet there is a mirror above the sink but I rarely take any notice of myself when I chance at it while washing my hands.

Being a large woman I find many mirrors make me look bigger then I feel not saying they make me look bigger then I am just bigger then I feel.


Yes I check how I look in a mirror before going out that I think is just natural but I don't feel the need to check how I look many times a day

Old Cards and Letters

Do you save old greeting cards and letters?

When I was younger I kept some cards and letters but not any more as a rule, although if I received a really nice card I may keep it.

When I see in movies and tv shows people finding a small pile of letters that have been kept I generally think who keeps letters, although I do get keeping some letters.


However, it is not something I generally do. I write and receive a lot of letters each year so if I was to keep all I received I would have boxes and boxes of letters.

Did you know Monday

So here we are at Monday, I have been out this morning doing some things for mum and going to the chemist to pick up medications that I need for the week.

I had a baked lunch here yesterday with Kathy, Jessica and Summer and Leo and of course Tim who was off.

Anyway since it is Monday it is did you know day

Californian Frank Epperson invented the ice lolly or lollypop in 1905, when he was 11 years old. He left a glass of soda or pop and a stirrer outside overnight and in the morning discovered them frozen together.

Just another Friday

Well here we are at 5pm on Friday afternoon after a lovely winters day with temps in the high 20's although in some parts of the state it is snowing and have some of the best snow falls in years but not here. I have been wearing shorts today, the next couple of days are suppose to be warm as well but we will see.

This morning I gave the wheelchair a miss when I went to Woolworths to get a few things, I managed to walk without much trouble but when we finished there I was starting to limp so before I went to the chemist and Big W I got the wheelchair and Jessica pushed me around.

Tonight my ankle is sore but not overly sore so ok, my back is aching as well as my head and I feel like going to sleep but such is life.

MRI Results

Hello everyone, didn't do a post yesterday as I was feeling terrible with pains in the tummy and a touch of the runs and just not myself. After I spoke to mum last night I went to bed and this morning I woke feeling like myself so all good.

Went to the doctors this morning and the MRI showed no signs of MS which will put Kathy's worry to rest. However, there is signs of borderline ventriculomegaly, yeah something I have never heard of. Dr Google tells me this about it:

Ventriculomegaly is a brain condition that occurs when the lateral ventricles become dilated. In fetuses, the most common definition uses a width of the atrium of the lateral ventricle of greater than 10mm. When the measurement is greater than 15mm, the ventriculomegaly may be classified as more severe. Enlargement of the ventricles may occur for a number of reasons, such as loss of brain volume (perhaps due to infection or infarction), or impaired outflow or absorption of cerebrospinal fluid from the ventricles. Often, however, there is no identifiable cause. The interventricular foramen may be congenitally malformed, or may have become obstructed by infection,haemorrhage , or rarely tumour, which may impair the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid, and thus accumulation in the ventricles.

Does that help, no, didn't help me either.................


Anyway I have to back and see the neurologist, referral has been sent off now I just have to wait for an appointment. I got the impression it isn't anything to worry about at this stage but it may explain why I get so many headaches.
