Hi Heather I made lots of pie crusts for my fresh apple pie's, then I made some canollie shells but doing the shells is too much work so think Im going to buy them in future, they keep for a couple of weeks and then I fill them as I need to with chocolate, or white cream fillings. A made a few small pizzas as well for dinner might as well make the most of it once Ive started. cool.gif

Heather it was them that phoned me and said tuesday so they should have called back and they said we will get the manager to call you and did he NO he didnt so its the company at fault am getting bad vibes from them and thats not good for my stress levels
Heather
Stuarty if your Oxygen is ordered through the Hospital then put a complaint in to them or to your Doctor.

yesterday I bought a bunch of leeks and wrapped around them was a recipe for Leeks and potato cakes, which I will try ,anyway the leeks come from Boot,s Farms, in Scotland Ontario. Lots of scottish names in Ontario

joycewilson
Hi Everyone.....Just Having My Wake Up Coffees Then Neeed To Get Ready For Work...... tongue.gif
stuarty
Thanks heather have sorted it out

today i managed to go out and climb the stairs and go to the postoffice in double quick time the oxygen works whoohoo a new lease of life no huffing and puffing and standing hanging onto railings for 20 mins at a time still a cant walk and talk but am no complaining as maybe this is a sign to shut up and start listening to others talking and that might be a no bad thing so a need to find away to get the oxygen to no catch on skipping roaps a will need to buy a pair and practice indoors without lydia knowing or my sons then a will surprise them a will wait until next week when a get extra cannisters and a will try a bit of dancing anaw the worlds my oyster A love dancing so a nice pressie for the 3 of them on christmas time eh wub.gif
Heather
I not only did my usual grocery shopping today, I bought all the Christmas food as well. I made out a big list and ticked everything off as I got them.

How were the leek cakes angel laugh.gif , well Im going to do some christmas visiting if I can get oot the street. All the kids ,,,well young men a should say, have just left my house and are on way to Pittsburg by car going to Pittsburg and Toronto game tonight most of the guys were working all night removing snow, not mine as he is the designated driver , but he worked aw day yesterday in the snow so had a pretty good nights sleep as its a long drive ( 6 to 7 hrs ) and had to have his sleep. Yesterday a made a big pot of home made soup so a told the guys tae each bring a flask so they will have something hot to drink with lunch. Im so proud of these boys.
