My Saturday at home in Melbourne Australia

Firstly forgive moi, my muse made me rest a bit and I took a step back from writing the last few days. However (for better or worse) she has returned and I few things to share, but to save your sanity of having to read a post that is 4 pages long I shall post a few smaller ones.

It is Saturday the 25th. The time now is 4:37pm. Mr. S is having a ‘cat-nap’ upstairs on the couch after doing some reading. I was up early, (well 8am) as I had some ‘chores’ to do. One was a medical appointment the other a little bit of housework.

I have now finished two loads of  washing ( yay you I hear you cry) and have hung(unceremoniously draped) everything on the ‘clothes horse’ to dry, as it’s cold and damp outside and it will be days (if not weeks) okay possibly months, before the sun peeks through again. I hate the cold (think you may already be aware of this) and dislike my house looking like a ‘laundry’  with washing hanging everywhere, but it is what it is, so I shall stop my moaning.

This morning I had an Ultrasound on my throat, well thyroid, I get this checked every couple of years as apparently I have some ‘nodules’ (quite an unpleasant sounding word really). I have copied the below information if no one has heard of this condition. Am I worried? Yes I am a little, my first scan in 2010 was clear, I will know the results of this one next Tuesday.

Thyroid Nodules Overview
The main function of the thyroid gland in the neck is to make thyroid hormone, which is essential for normal growth and metabolism. Nodules are simply lumps which are either solid or fluid-filled. Autopsy studies have revealed that up to 50% of all adults die carrying at least one thyroid nodule. These people may or may not have been aware of the presence of their thyroid nodules.Thyroid nodules are found more commonly as people age. Most thyroid nodules are benign and not cancerous.Only 5% of all thyroid nodules will be discovered to be thyroid cancer.Finding cancer in a thyroid nodule is more likely in a person younger than age 30 or older than age 60 years.However, it is important to remember that only a small percentage of people with thyroid cancer die as a result of their thyroid cancer.

Now for something a little lighter…

Here is a pic of the office/study (I should have tied the papers up first) where I type my blogs and now and then stare out of the window for inspiration.

You can now picture me sitting here can’t you? You are excited by that aren’t you? Aren’t you?

Where do you sit to blog? Does the room where you type (if you have a mains computer) give you inspiration? What do you stare at when your fingers aren’t hitting the keyboards and your muse let’s you rest for a moment?

Post a pic – or describe if you want to? *nods* would like to know, so then when I read your posts, I can visualise you there (in a non stalking way) that is.  🙂
