Reasons To Be Cheerful

Firstly that we have - despite all the criticism, a very good Health Service in this country. Here I am on holiday, but I am still able to get an appointment with a local GP and medication, very quickly. I only had to pay for the meds, not the consultation. I am suffering from phlebitis and my legs are a mess but healing well.
Second, that I can get books from the library and use the computer there, all quite freely.
Thirdly, tonight we will be at my brother's for a meal. I'm responsible for dessert, so taking locally made ice cream, fresh berries and home baked cookies. (Orcs-see post on May 11th)
So much to be thankful for - holidays, health, education, food and family.

And it's the weekend and we are hoping to go to the fair in Fakenham this morning. I hope your weekend is good too!


  1. Sorry to hear you are poorly on your holidays. It's so annoying when that happens but, as you say, we have a lot to be thankful for. The NHS only gets in the news when something goes wrong but most of the time we get a really good service.
    Hope you're soon better ...... and those cookies look marvellous.

  2. Raining here! May get to the beach later - hoping so. Agree with what you say xxx

  3. Glad you're still feeling cheerful despite the phlebitis. Hope it clears up soon. x

  4. I'm sorry you have to be visiting the Dr whilst on holiday, Angela. Prayers for a swift recovery.

  5. Oh dear, that sounds like a nasty thing to have, hope it doesn't spoil your break, and gets better soon.

  6. Sun is shining here, so washing is on line. Many blessings being counted here too xx Get well, legs, get well soon.

  7. Hope you are better soon. Woke to heavy rain pattering on my roof which I love. Have a roof over my head, food in the pantry,clothes on my back and a fire in my grate and just to round it off a 'bus pass' Big thank you to all those working their little socks off and paying tax to keep me and fellow pensioners looked after.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
