my recent run of bad luck continues. the bloody washing machine went wrong this morning. did a load of whites,was making lot of noise,which i ignored lol.put load coloreds in,it washed,got to rinse cycle. and stopped. dead. luckily i switched off,and managed to get door open and it pumped out,although a lot of water over kitchen floor. thank god for vaxes lol. luckily i do have insurance but it will take ages to get it sorted. hand washing not a pleasant thought. luckily i know my neibour will let me use hers. really will be glad when this year is out. not been good year at all.
the xmas lights are now on my profile pics. sorry not added them on here,still finding my way around blog. please feel free to look at them. the night views arent brilliant,too many flashing,and my poor camera couldnt cope. its only a cheap camera,but it does take good pics. will try again at later date to capture better shots.
mum goes to chiropodists in morning,toe still very sore,she really is suffering bless her. i hate to see me mum in so much pain.
xmas cards are now starting to arrive. i got thinking,ive lost touch with nearly all my old friends,the only time i hear from them is a xmas card. and i know im not alone, many carers find the same thing. we cant just meet up and go to pub like we used to,we care.full time.and it is hard to get away. and in my case,im usually hard up and can't afford to go out. so people drift away.we lose touch.just a xmas card, that's all we now have to remind us of happier times. which is why im on here so much. ive been online now 5 years but it is only this year i started using chatrooms. before i never could get into them,often too fast,too cliquey,but 1 night i found a small chatroom,only opens when the main room is full.and...............nice people. and i just want to say thanks. thanks to all the many friends ive made this year,the laughs,and friendship.many are now friends in the "real" world,as well as online.if it wasn't for you,my life would be a lonelier,poorer place. please,if you are in a chatroom,chatting and laughing with your mates,take the time,just to say hi,to any new person entering. they may be shy,lonely,fed up. 1 word can lead to so much. take care all
