Friyay


 Yippee Friday is finally here.  Mum survived the bus strike and managed a solid 15,000 steps today, so this evening she is planning to sit on the couch and barely move.  She also went and got her 2nd Covid vaccination today.  It was busy at the clinic as someone fainted after their injection.   Mum felt fine but most of her colleagues have felt a bit rough the day after this 2nd injection.   Mum plans to have some orange juice and an early  night.  

Do you like the soft focus photo?  Mum has no idea of how to put the special effects on her photos, it all happens when she accidentally presses pushes some button.   She should look at the instructions sometime.

We hope you are all excited for the weekend and have something fun planned.

  2. Your mom always takes great pictures of you Poppy. Glad she got her second dose and doesn't feel any real side effects. It sounds like your mom got more than enough walking it in so a good rest with you is in order

  3. That is a lovely photo, Poppy. Well done to your mum on her 15,000 steps even though they were forced on her. A year ago with the side effects from the meds I was on I struggled to do 50 steps! The meds I take now don't give me those side effects and even the bone spurs and swollen joints are almost back to normal. Of course there are other possible dangerous side effects as with most powerful drugs, but I am aware of what to watch out for. I am trying to build my walking back up and did 3,200 steps yesterday. Nowhere near enough, but it is improving and it is good to be able to walk again without seizing up all the time.

  4. Oh Mum's walking is impressive. I miss walking as I have used a chair for years. Have a great weekend, Poppy.

  5. That’s a really stunning photo of you Poppy. I am trying to set up a new phone. Trying to turn it on or off I got 111 emergency. Most embarrassing. Spark comes out in a week to do it for me. Just finished The two popes on Netflix. Not a catholic but oh such a moving film. Anthony Hopkins is so great as is the other main character.

  6. Poppy, dear, you don't need a soft-focus mode to appear plush and lush, but it's nice that mum has learned a new button! Buttons can be intimidating. A friend of mine bought a fancy car that had a manual 3 inches thick, so she went on YouTube to watch the 30-minute online instructions instead. Ah, for the days when we ladies could change our own spark plugs!

  8. Happy weekend, Poppy! I don't know what your human did with the photo either, but it does look nice.

  9. I had the Pfizer vaccine. I'm apparently the oddball of those who have taken it. I had a headache and fatigue after the first shot and nothing the second.
