Hot off the Press – 4th December 2017

Hot off the Press 0412

Hot off the Press

Putting out to the Universe to give me a calmer week! Moving and having a cold can really take it out of me when half of my body is not on-board with the other half.

Monday, had a nice day at home with my Friday carer. Got to put more stuff where it belongs and need extra hands. Introduced her to vacuum seal bags! I always sell them with “You will love it!” And then they do. I have clothes I want to sell and winter things I want to store over summer and I need the space more than ever.

Monday

Tuesday, start with a much-deserved massage with the lovely Caroline. She was very impressed by how my new home me has evolved. She was here Day 1, when she, Mum and I bought all my prints, and my clothes on hangers. So, she really was impressed. She set up her massage table in my study. Have I mentioned my bedroom is so small and my bed so big, I can’t close my bedroom door! Apartment living! Winning!

Massage

Anyway, where was I? Got to have lunch with Caroline today. Here is what I had, Quiche with Mediterranean, with a side-salad and medicine. Then off to see my GP. Like to imagine you saw my Wednesday Good mental health foodie post? Standard Punchy/stubby day………..still hot. Otherwise, a long day.

Learn late my Thursday/Friday carer was sick. Couldn’t help myself as I replied with a “FARK!” At least they replaced her and even though my case manager didn’t turn up to help get things moving with my new NDIS funding. Starting to seriously need shoes and I’ve been wearing the ones I have every day for 4 years? That’s not right, is it? (It’s not like I can just get them in any shop anymore…..)

Shoes

Friday, now I should prime this by saying. Melbourne is known for 4 seasons in one day. Weather-wise. Summer had come early after a cold but rather dry winter and we have been warned we are about to have 4 wet days, that will cause flash-flooding. In fact, all the rain due in summer will be coming in the next 4 days. So, kinda happy I live in an apartment on the 2nd floor. Right?
Wrong!

 

This is the drain on my balcony……remember I’m on the second floor?
No, I’m not sinking, but I prompted my property manager that the Body Corp may have neglected something. Perhaps the storm-drains? Meanwhile, a water feature on my balcony!
I’ve never lived in something so new, (under 5 years old) as an adult at least. I normally prefer an old terrace house or such, but here we are.

Cooler and wetter on the off-grid weekend. Serious catch-up on TV, have neglected my comics lately but have been busy, thanks for nobody mentioning it!

Sunday ends with me exclaiming “I’m unpacking the last box,”
Leaving you with pictures of the study. Including my collection of the heavy Vogue Living. 25+ years ………..

And these are my Christmas Lillie’s which are to come out at Christmas! So, I guess Christmas came early?

To another crazy week to come!

Today’s Lunch

There is never enough time! And repeat! Have noticed some signs of anxiety lately. Not the kind to alter my medication but enough to take stock and slow down (as if) and give myself some down time…

never-enough-time-you-have

That said I was able to get here yesterday also before my GP appointment and it’s been a bit of a quiche week. Yesterday it was a quiche with Mediterranean veggies.

Yesterday's lunch

Today’s offering is the Pancetta quiche with side salad. (Note some effort made to style it!)

By the time I got here I felt like I had 20 minutes to inhale lunch.

Not enough time!

Today’s lunch

There is always something instantly therapeutic about my Wednesday routine.
No Hellonwheels today as my scooter shed is not up yet and she is currently without power.

She is not the Mothers Cat in this case it’s my mobility scooter.

Today’s offering,
Zaffarino Arancini with the side salad.
(Mint, peas with saffron rice)
With Sicilian chocolate cannoli
(Breakfast)
Medicine!

And when I walked in I was greeted by this:

Today’s Lunch

I confess to say food doesn’t motivate me today. But, you know its fuel for the body and all that.

I’ve got a crappy cold! (Again!) this one is likely stress-related. As I’m moving house next Tuesday……. Today’s offering is a mushroom and sundried tomato Arancini with a side salad and medicine.

Crappy cold

Apart from my cold, I have the added bonus of a rib out.  That’s going to-be fun when my chiro puts that back in and sore tummy muscles. (Side-note: there is no muscle memory in that region!) and an added disability today…….this is a great way for able-bodied people to feel an instant deficit if you are game?

I’m a big texter and I’m a thumb-texter. Today, I’ve a Band-Aid on my thumb! It’s a new form of torture………

Texting

Lastly, feeling very-frustrated my case-management agency is undoing all my organizing and not helping me.

Frustrated

I did however hear my new NDIS funding has been approved! What that actually means is a completely different story.

Cheers,
H

Today’s Lunch

Missing Young John as Spring has really settled in. Freezing cold rugged up on the couch under a doona with the heater on! Just freezing. But making him proud today by walking to the tram.

It started to rain lightly just short of the tram stop but I’m in full-winter mode today. Full Marino wool jacket & my heavy jacket with the hood where I can’t see a foot in front of me.

Sitting waiting for lunch & have done 1,300 steps already. Still can’t feel my left foot but, here we are! Winning!
Do I need to tell you all what this is? Including today’s complimentary Chocolate Mignon.
(Oh, look her hair looks lovely today!)

Anyway, always feel a bit like a wanker when i take a photograph of my foot. At least I don’t have a food only Insta account right?
Enjoy.

Cheers,
H

Todays lunch 3008

First let’s begin with last week’s Pancetta Quiche. It’s a bit of a summer standard. Hence, why i love the Arancini during winter.

And today’s lunch,
Can you guess what it is?
Yes, yes. Bolognaise again.

And the standard medicine.

Bolognaise Arancini

There are new staff who must speak more Italian than English. I gave her a Gracia, & a Ciao Bella!

Cheers,
H
