afternoon ramble

Well I feel somewhat better. I took a whole load of meds. That seems to have helped somewhat.
I’m at my parents now. I’ll be here for a few days.
Mom and dad are gone out, so I have the house to myself, well the dogs are here, but other than them its just me.
Dad has an apt with the eye doctor. So mom went with him.
I’m happy cuz I can still go to the gym tonight. That makes me happy.
Exercise will do me good I think. I need to exercise.
Did I tell you it cost me 80 euro to fix my house alarm? Yep. Good thing I had extra money. It was 10 euro for each battery and I needed 7 batteries, and then the guy charged me 10 euro for fitting them.
Tomorrow evening I am going for a meal with the old staff from the basement club. There are a few of us going. It should be fun. It will be nice to see them all again.
Anyway I’m going to go and make a cup of tea now. And book my taxi to take me to the gym later on.

Still feel bad!

I still feel sick. So I am not going in to college today. I am staying home instead!

I feel so achey and weak!

I am going to dose myself up with a lemsip, which is a UK brand of cold medicine. I will make that, take it and hope I feel better in a few hours.

I have plans to go to the gym this evening with my PA instead of going to slimming world. I hope I can still go. I’m thinking I’ll be ok in a few hours.

I got very little sleep last night too which isn’t helping. I tossed and turned all night and felt really bad.

I have a few hours before mom comes over to pick me up. I am going to her house and spending a few nights there. We’re actually going away this weekend to Killarney in co. Kerry. We’re going there for my nieces 11th birthday, we’re having a girly weekend, mom my sister and me and the two kids. It should be fun!

I am so excited to go! I am going to hopefully feel a lot better by then so I can enjoy myself.

Well off to feed the pup and make my lemsip! Catch ya’ll later!

Did you know? 19th February 2019

Did you know?
That today is Brother Athletes Day? In 1984, Phil and Steve Mahre became the first brothers to win the gold and silver medals in the same Olympic event. They took first and second place in slalom. Trivia fans: Phil is four minutes older than Steve! They’re fraternal twins rather than identical twins.

My cheque came!

Got the mail and my cheque came! The cheque for the settlement from the car crash.
Yay I am so thrilled! What a nice surprise!
Now that part of it is over with! Now I will have to go lodge it in the credit union, and I think it takes 5 working days to clear.
I’ve decided to open a separate account for that money to keep it in I mean.
I have a few plans for the money! Mostly my plans are to enjoy it, go places, enjoy being able to go on trips with family, weekends away, etc.
This is definitely a nice way to start my day today!

Old time popcorn balls

Old Time Popcorn Balls
2 quarts popped popcorn
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Place popcorn in a large bowl; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine molasses, sugar, water, vinegar and butter. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until candy thermometer reads 235 degrees (soft-ball stage). Add baking soda; stir well. Remove from the heat and immediately pour over popcorn, stirring gently with a wooden spoon until well coated. When cool enough to handle, quickly shape into 3 inch balls, dipping hands in cold water to prevent the syrup from sticking.
Note:
After shaping the popcorn balls, wrap with clear or colored plastic wrap. You can add a holiday touch by tying them with colored ribbons.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
