Self-Indulgent Health Update

As part of an occasional series, which prevents me from boring you in real life, here’s an exciting health round-up.
I had my annual Harefield check-up the other day and the consultant said my heart is sounding ‘beautiful’. I do like medical terms. A couple of years ago, I was told it was ‘tickety boo’.

I also had blood tests and an MOT at my doctor’s and everything’s functioning fine.

The only odd thing is that my new daily aspirin dose seems to be making me feel cold all the time.

As for my knees – well, they’re on their knees at the moment. Knees obviously don’t have knees. It’s a metaphor.

I’m not sure what’s happened, but they hurt so much I can hardly walk up the stairs sometimes. I’ll be seeing my GP about them soon.

If you know my parents, DON’T TELL THEM.

Thank you.

Bolly and her Orange Bird

An action shot of Boll at the weekend, playing with her favourite orange bird.

Bolly’s Pistol Ploy

When Boll misbehaves, I shoot her with a water pistol. Simples. We’ve always had an agreement. But she’s now realised I don’t like squirting water anywhere near electronic equipment.
So if she wants to be naughty, she just sits next to something electronic. Here she is this morning, cosying up to a DV camera.


Good morrow. I’m back.
