And the Winner Is

Amanda ...please email me your address and i will stick an autistic teenager on a bike with the plates ...kidding
Meanwhile in the real world , weve being doing endless Mr Bah Humbug trips and now Ive more Baldrick trips in this weeks workload , they moved him back to his old assisted living project and because most of the residents have been sent to jail he quite likes it there , well thats what theyve told him,  personally I think the staff may have held a cull . Hes got a work placement doing land clearance which he loves and hes still taking his medication and seems fairly lucid . So slightly less worried about him at the moment .
Mr Bah Humbug however is driving me mad after his cured by GP glancing at scan appointment , though he cheered up a bit today, he had his urgent Podiatry appointment and they told him that his galloping diabetes and imminent amputation is actually an ingrowing toenail and his blood sugar is fine . Theyre off to do that for him in the next few weeks , but once again they asked if he has Parkinsons , he was having a bad tremor day today and doing his drunken sailor walk . His comment?

Its all in my head ask my GP

Someone paid me a tiny payment into the bank so I can work the rest of the week ....WHOOPIE
I squandered most of it on a bit of shopping
1 mothers day card
2 packs of pork scratchings
Huge cabbage, cauliflower leeks and grapes off the market , a whopping £2.20
Broad Bean & Sweetcorn seeds Wilcos £2.50
A small bag of compost £2 because I enjoy walking miles back to the car with it , theres nowhere to park due to the poxy transport hub eyesore theyre building in Lincoln .
Then Morrisons for 4 pork chops for tea £5 thats the reason we dont often get decent meat, first time in a year we have had pork chops.
Liver
Cooking Bacon
Cat food
Giant hotdogs
Bread

Ive come to the conclusion I'm just seriously mean not just frugal , Ive been whinging that the prices at the cat jumble sale now being 30p an item , i got a tee shirt for son some xmas fabric and another piece for quilting , plus a typewriter for a £1 . Then yesterday I went off on one because i'd 7 adults for tea and the munchkin and had to use my imagination and root to the very back of the cupboad , it ended up as slow cooker chicken f*%k knows stew.
One lonely chicken breast shredded
One big tin of seriously out of date flagelot beans
3 sticks of wilty celery
2 mangy carrots
handful of lentils handful of dried onions
stock cube
half a tin of tomato paste lurking at the back of the fridge
3 cloves of garlic
two big spoonfuls of chilli sauce
sprinkle of everyday value herbs
add dumplings at the end

Beggers belief but they all went back for seconds , why are the good stews and casseroles always the stuff you just throw in?

Can You Buy Positivity ?

Havent posted for a few days due to blogger failing to load the write a post page , bless it .
Work dried up this week as it does this time of year before next years contracts start . Then Thursday everything becomes urgent and I havent a cent to my name for fuel . lol such is life
The weather has been glorious and Spring like , so ive had 2 garden bonfires , cleaned up loads outside and theres still tons to do . Charlie Chainsaw has been at it again and has removed more of our fencing to put on his woodburner , most of the trees have gone off the estate now and the new folks over the road are just as bad , he asked the other day if we needed the trees in the garden as we dont have a woodburner , im begining to think they issue them a chainsaw with there tenancy agreement , they dont seem to grasp that you have to dry logs before using them and we have stinky black clouds of smoke when they start them each morning , so my revenge was two bonfires when they put there washing out . I really am that petty lol .
We are now the only council property here that doesnt have a woodburner . But apparently there painting the house this year , not sure when , im hoping they actually replace the front door this time , the bottom is so rotten the mice dont even knock as they run in and out and its horrible getting up to a hall full of snails and slugs when its wet .
Then the washer finally died spectacularly and terminally , the boys dismantled it and some of the parts will be sold on ebay to start the new washer fund , just havent got a penny at the moment , daughter helpfully suggested getting a club book , no thanks . im currently handwashing all the clothes and will stockpile towels and bedding for a launderette trip at the end of the month . Daughter thinks this is unhygienic and is paying her mate to do her and the munchkins washing , tell me the logic of that one ?
We have had problems at the GPs again , we wont even go there, it was so demoralizing and has set mr Bah Humbug off on yet another downwood spiral , it seems they know far more than two consultants he has seen and are experts at looking at scans, who knew ?
Im sure Lincoln has got Jumble Sale fever today , theres a cat one at Washingborough , Sturton By Stow this afternoon plus a couple of other little ones as well, Mr might let me go to one because we have to go into town today for bits and bobs  . The budget is £2 for this week ..lol

Pretty Worthless Giveaway

Its Jumble Sale season !!! my favourite time of the year , before the car boot sales start . So I  trotted off to the scout hut in Lincoln last week for a cats sale last week, these are always amazing cheap and so varied it can be a little surreal, I spent a whole £1 on a cushion and 3 articles of clothing , one to cut up for patchwork ,one to unravel for the wool in a virulent lime green and one summer wear in the garden dress that my OH viewed with total horror ...lol...the point is that its these little things that make me happy .
Then it was pop into the Bridge Community Venue and i had to bring these home




Victorian and Edwardian are so unloved these days that this pair of pink and pretty were just pennies , sat among normal everyday dishes , now I cant become a plate collector , I have a drawer full in the filling cabinet already and we havent had a giveaway on this miserable blog forever .
So lets give away a pair of pretty pink romantic transfer ribbon plates , how do you enter may you ask ?  Its so simple, just comment , we will draw a winner by the scientific method of munchkin and dish on Sunday 19th March .
  Doesnt matter where in the world you are , we will post them to you , but it may be buy some weird super cheap postal method , like making Young Baldrick cycle there , so dont expect them tomorrow .

On a plus note theres a scout jumble sale at Lincoln Birchwood scout hut today which I cant make . And a Church Jumble at Tetford  this afternoon , a flyspeck in the Wold that i have had to look up on maps that i want to go to but i need funds...lol  Maybe I should charge them for doing their washing?

Into The Wilderness

Really havent had time for a lot of me this week , its all Mr Bah Humbug . It would seem that hes actually ill . Its a bit strange really because in the last 2 years of endless locums and never seeing the same person twice , hes been accused of being an alcoholic when he doesnt drink , being a fat dole scrounger in not so many words , struggled to ever get an appointment and become so depressed by it all that he has going on with his body that he has been suicidal .
Now just because his case worker rang them for a medical report hes actually ill . Its a bit obvious that they are in a panic . Hes got endless investigative hospital appointments coming up in the next few weeks , his test results have come back with dreadful scores for all sorts of strange things .
He took great delight in showing them his rotting toe
Why have you never mentioned this before ?

I have mentioned my feet every time ive seen someone for the last 2 years , the last time i was told to shut up because i only had 10 minutes by the locum with no vowels in his name !
Then the was the strange bloke who mumbled a lot and told me he wasnt interested because i was to fat to treat !
The nice arabish lady locum said i needed to see a Neurologist urgently , but you cancelled that because i was already seeing the Pain consultant and Orthopedics and it was to much expense . Oh and then there was Doctor bleedin Google the one who told me there is nothing wrong with me . !!!!!

It would seem because his xrays for his hip has come back clear of anything they now think he may have a problem with his bowels , problem !! hes been getting worse and worse for 2 years !! he has an urgent gastro appointment among all the others .

When he came out from his appointment yesterday, he went to the receptionist to book his next appointment for next week , she turned round and told him no chance and to ring back next week only to find the actual doctor stood there who said he is to get an appointment when he asks for one .
You see it all the time that being fat increases your risk for certain illnesses but it really is a case of getting anyone to look past the fat and actually take you seriously thats a major NHS problem at the moment .
