A remark a nurse said the other day made me feel younger again.

I was getting the seasonal flu jab. The nurse asked was I ok with injections, I'm grand with them. But putting the plaster on afterwards she say's 'red heads always bleed more'.

Now its been awhile since I've been recognized as a red head so I'm guessing there's some still left.. One of the things I missed most the older I got was my shock of red hair, I loved it.

Playing the 3 Arena and I've literally never heard of them before.

I'm thinking of getting one of those garden kneeler/stools. It would be handy for loading the washing machine or getting at a low press. I have a sticky knee and need something to hold on to to get back up again.

I looked at the back of my hand one summer and thought to myself - wow, loads of freckles this year. That winter, the freckles were still there and I realised they were liver spots. Then the year I spent squinting, asking myself why my eyes were always tired when I wanted to read. Eventually I accepted that my eyes weren't tired, but that I needed reading glasses.

I tend to treat infirmities of old age as negotiations with death.

That's a great idea, I might get a second one for indoors, the one that lives in the garden is always full of booby trap water and snails.

This made me smile... My fingers are now bending at the top joint, ever more inwards.. over and over they go.. used to make folk smile when they saw me knitting at the market stall..

Well, the thread is "something made me realise I was getting older".



Lately I seem to get more muscle strain from lifting or hauling than I used to.

Today was a day that made me feel like I was in my mid-90s, and not quite right in the head.

1. I kept mixing up my words (Spooner would have been proud), and I couldn't remember the word "glaucoma" so I had to ask the internet.
2. I was supposed to go to the post office and then to a specific shop in the next town to get some presents for Christmas, and before leaving the house I had to be reminded to go to the shops, because the thought had gone right out of my head.
3. I lost track of the number of times I said the same thing to the same person at 10-15 minutes intervals. :/
4. My eyesight today is shot.
5. At one stage, as I was about to get out of a parking spot, I had to think long and hard about what side of the road I was supposed to be on.
6. I forgot what else I was going to say, but I know I had something else to add.

For the time being, I'm going to blame chronic sleep deprivation. :/ If I catch up on some lost sleep tonight and I'm better tomorrow, grand, otherwise I think a visit to the doctor might be in order.

Are you sure you're not in your mid 90's
