The Lake District's next top model

I have just popped indoors a moment, taking a break from building an ark in the back garden.
Seriously, the weather is being ridiculous. And yes, I know we chose to live in the Lakes and that it is fabulous, and that it is a wet place, but really...two solid months of downpours? I can't remember what the sun looks like. If it isn't pouring , the clouds are gathering. Every one of our rain coats or waterproofs is soaking wet. Anyone who comes through the door looks like a regular drowned rat. Surely, we are going to get some autumn sunshine soon? PLEASE?

My ratty mood has not improved. Can you can tell? I am now in bed with pancreatitis, brought on ( again) by the evil gallstones. I have had blood tests today and have been threatened with hospital ( again). I am seeing the consultant on Thursday and I am seriously considering chaining myself to his office and refusing to leave until he promises to take my gall bladder out. Is it really too much to ask? Can I please get on with my life?

Anyway, I am now lighter than I was when I got married. Soon I will be the same weight as when other half and I met. After that I will be a parisian cat walk model and everyone will be criticizing me for being ' far too damned skinny'. Ok- I am a little off the last stage, but it gets closer every day.

Anyway, I will leave you all now, and will return to my clear liquids and bed rest. Grrr

What was that line in "The Devil Wears Prada?"..."I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight!" You poor dear...I hope you get the care you deserve and need from that doctor. Blessings.

Oh no, so sorry to hear you're ill. And that it's raining. I hear you on that one, although I can't complain as I have been away in the sun so it doesn't seem so relentless. And, amazing on the diet success! Sounds like you are practically French!! Get well soon and good luck with the doctor.

That much rain, would really get on my nerves too. Sending you some sunshine via Fed Ex. ;0
Hope you feel better. Must get the gall bladder taken care of. Here, they take them out first thing!

Oh, poor, poor Jo! I am sorry you're down with pancreatis again, and I hope you feel better soon! And I hope you get to see some sunshine soon as well!

We're having beautiful, sunny weather here, but I shouldn't rub that in, should I?

Take good care!

Healing Huggies,

I hope you get better soon! After a horrendous drought for a couple of years, we've been quite soggy this year also. Rained out Hubby's golf game all weekend. Poor baby!

Ooooo-aaaaaar! sorry to hear you are stricken. I can feel the pain with you, having been there and done that 40 years ago( and in those days there was no keyhole surgery)
I can't understand why the Doc's are delaying whipping it out, it is of no use to you now.
Poor you up there having all that rain too, just not fair, as in Southport just down from you, my sister tells me they haven't had much rain at all.
Cheers and hugs.
Love Granny
