My neighbour’s funeral is on Wednesday. There was no post mortem and the cause of death was apparently “natural”. Quite what’s natural about falling in the middle of the night because you can barely walk and have been left alone is beyond me, but it comes as no surprise.
I have begun a new battle with my insurance company about my Income Protection policy, which I’ve written about before. They will tell me to get stuffed and I shall refer the situation to the Financial Ombudsman’s Service. I’ll do a full post on what’s been going on when I next hear back from them.
I bought my first Christmas present this week. I can’t leave it til December in case I have a rough patch and am too unwell to do the whole Yuletide thing, so it’s good to have made a start even though I fucking hate having to think about Christmas when we’re barely into November!
I’ve done something to my knee and can hear something snapping when I walk. Went to bed fine and woke the next morning hobbling. It has two choices, it will either sort itself out or it won’t. I’ll just stick my knee brace on, trundle about on my irritating crutches and try to forget about it.
All in all though I’ve had a relaxing week, with some time to myself (although a whole day was lost to a migraine). Ironic I should get that now and not on my “holiday” but I’ll take it when I can get it!
Wednesday night we had our first print competition of the new season at my Camera Club and I am delighted to say I received joint first place with this photo of a family friend. To be fair, with a fabulous face like that to photograph I couldn’t really go wrong could I?
I also spent a couple of hours having huge fun in my spare bedroom in my new dress-up costume. The resulting photo still needs a bit of work but you get the gist. Having never had long hair in my entire life I freakin’ love that blonde wig though the DHL chap got a bit of a shock when I opened the door to take a parcel from him in full medieval queen regalia 😉
