    • To put it bluntly I’d like to talk about gallstones 😊
      Bezzyboo 19th January 2021 at 9:26 pm

      My daughter had it very bad. Resorted to living on steamed fish, chicken and white rice before she had surgery. Said it really helped. Not sure why but a bottle of light beer with lime cordial also eased the pain. Wasn’t drinking for the sake of it – she wasn’t really a lager lover but it helped.

      Worse thing to take is morphine – it made her pain much worse.

      She had 74 stones removed! 😳

      Don’t think gallstones go away on their own, if they’re causing a problem they to be removed.

      The pain is horrendous – don’t suffer with it when they can remove the gallbladder by keyhole surgery.

      Good luck

      Gallbladder is on the right Jen. But can cause problems with your spleen on the left. I’ve recently read this as I have upper abdominal pain on the left and am awaiting an urgent scan.

      Hard as it is, try not to panic. Try a hot water bottle or an ice pack – or both alternately.. maybe a TENS machine if you have one.

      Strong painkillers really don’t help but regular patacetamol/ibuprofen if you can tolerate them could help.

      Good luck with your scan, let us know how you get on 🙂

      Thanks Jen. It seems those around us worry more about us more than we do ourselves.

      Maybe we should take a leaf out of their books and practice a bit more self care, and then maybe they won’t be as anxious.

      Be good to hear how your scan goes so I’ll know what to look forward too 😆

      Maybe a little too early to ask, but hope your scan went well today Jen. How did you get on?

      But fantastic news that you haven’t got gallstones! That’s something to celebrate in itself 🙂🎉🎊

      Pleased to hear the pain has eased off a little. Did you take anything different? Sometimes the things we think won’t work, actually do (I’m thinking paracetamol) and we had them beside us all along. And they do work if taken regularly.

      Give yourself a break now, you’ve got some time I would imagine before the next round of tests. Time to be kind to you and have a little pamper. Maybe not a glass of wine though just in case it starts things off again 🙈

      Quick question as I’m curious… do the big holes in the ears have a meaning? Or is there a reason you have them? Or is it just you being a dedicated follower of fashion? 😁

    • How am I going to cope tomorrow? Mum died one year ago from a massive...
      Bezzyboo 24th January 2021 at 11:26 pm

      First, be kind to yourself… be proud of yourself for getting through the year, however hard it’s been. Grief is so difficult to deal with and it takes a strong person to get through it.

      Remember your Mum isn’t suffering, she’s free from pain, and it’s us who got left behind that hurts so much. And I’m sure she would be very proud of you for battling on.

      On the year anniversary of my mums passing, my daughter and I cooked her favourite meal, we chatted about her a lot and laughed so hard at times we had tears. We spoke about how the past year had been and remembered how she would have been so upset knowing we were upset still. So we painted smiles on, had a little cry and toasted her! Thankful for the time we had with her in our lives.

      All sounds a bit cliche doesn’t it? But it was a hard day, couldn’t help but remember every detail and promised ourselves we would move on.

      I wouldn’t say time heals the wounds, but I would say we learn to cope with our losses better.

      Have a little cry, it’s healthy for you, and think about what you can do to be kind to yourself.

      A treat, something you don’t have often or a new book or magazine, a candle or flowers – whatever you fancy really. And smile because you were lucky to have her in your life for the length of time she was with you 🙂

    • First time on a plane, where did you fly to?
      Bezzyboo 29th April 2021 at 11:25 am

      Flew to Feurteventura on Christmas Day 2010… was so excited with my daughter. Man next to us asked if we’d flown before. When we said no, it was our first time he got all huffy and said ‘I hope you’re not going to spoil the flight for the rest of us!’

      Rude or what?

      We loved the flight and didn’t spoil it, (had no intention too we were just happy to be experiencing it all!)

      And that was when the travel bug caught us, and we’ve been to a fair few places since 😊

    • Career change in my 50s
      Bezzyboo 29th April 2021 at 11:58 pm

      Definitely check out all the pros and cons before you jump into it. Maybe you could start up as a part time business while you’re still working your day job if you need to earn, or even consider part time for both jobs to make a full week.

      You can only build up your clientele by working and demonstrating your skills so it’s catch 22 really. If you don’t offer the service you can’t get the custom.

      Have you thought about advertising? Leafleting could be expensive and the door to door delivery is boring. Social media’s great, along with word of mouth. What about competition in your area? What would be your unique selling point? You really need something that’s going to make you stand out from the rest, to make you the best! I wouldn’t dream of saying ‘naked oven cleaner’ – (but wearing your apron of course 😂) but it would certainly catch people’s attention! 🙈
      Make your USP unique!

      What equipment will you use? Good old elbow grease or some kind of machinery that will make it quicker and easier? Plain old water and natural cleaners or chemicals which may affect you and your clients.

      And is there real money to be earnt from the job? Will you be able to earn a living? You’d need to have the money upfront to start, a vehicle and insurance for the business and insurance for you. What if you hurt your back with all the bending down and can’t work for a while?

      Jot it all down and mull it over. You’re doing the right thing getting peoples opinions, but the ones that matter most are those of your family and friends.

      I also believe it’s never too late to change your career. Do what you want to do, as long as it’ll make you happy. Life’s too short to be miserable in your job or at work.

      Good luck though. It will be interesting to learn what you eventually decide 🙂👍🏼

      Bezzyboo 30th April 2021 at 12:02 am

      Thank you. Yes we had a lovely holiday. My mum had not long passed away and we didn’t want to ‘do Christmas.’ Went out with intentions of it not being Christmas in Feurteventura. Was aiming for sun, pool and books and to forget the past few months that had been so trying.

      Got there to be greeted by a 50’ Christmas Tree and Christmas Dinner 🙈😂😂

      Self cleaning ovens only do the sides of the cavity. They don’t pick up the burnt on drops of gravy/sauce off the bottom or the crumbs from that crumble. Well, mines a couple of months old and hasn’t done that yet. I’m still waiting for the bells and whistles to go off when it does happen 😂

    • Does anyone suffer from dry mouth at night?
      Bezzyboo 17th June 2021 at 10:32 pm

      I have sleep apnoea so have to wear a face mask to bed in case I stop breathing.

      I use Xylimelt’s (from the Jungle Retailer online) they stick to the side or roof of your mouth (some kind of wizardry makes them stick!) and melt very slowly through the night to help combat the dryness. When you wake up in the morning, they’ve melted away. They really do help me

    • Introduce yourself in the London Group
      Bezzyboo 18th April 2022 at 11:56 am

      Hey, I’m in Harrow, Middlesex (or NW London as some say!) and it seems there’s a lack of members from this area.

      Can’t find anyone local at all! Be great if we could start a ‘Harrow and surrounding areas’ group, for people to chat, meet up and do things together.

      I’m not into walking far, as I’m disabled (I do however drive a car) and use a mobility scooter at times, which is a help and a hindrance! I’ve only run over one guy up til now, so think I must be doing pretty good on my wheels! My brains fine – it’s just my legs that don’t wanna work! 🤷🏼‍♀️

      Would be great to chat to other Middlesexians (is that a real word?) or meet up to visit local places of interest. I don’t mean Harrow McDee’s or Wealdstone High Street, 🙈 more picnics at the Duck Pond Park in Pinner, a leisurely sip at the Black Horse in Sudbury or a slice of delicious pizza from the cafe in West Harrow Park.

      I’m into football(!) love driving, days out and have a keen interest in genealogy. I like history, and reading and listening to audio books. I’m currently doing the Harry Potter series for the second time round. Stephen Fry’s reading voice is so smooth – and helps me get off to sleep! Saying that I think I’m on the same chapter I started 8 weeks ago 😂

      I like travelling home and abroad, and doing a bit of gardening, but not too much! Maybe I should say I like being in the garden – when not much needs doing to it! 🤷🏼‍♀️

      I don’t like nosey neighbours and interfering busybodies.. and have no time for ignorant and rude people.

      I lead a fairly simple life, pottering around doing my own thing, day in day out – but it would be nice to chat to, and possibly meet new friends in the area.

      If you’re bored with nothing to do during the day give me a shout. I’d be happy to have a chinwag 😊

      It’s a great song! If I hear it in the car the volume goes as high as it can without my passengers complaining. I really get ‘into it’ and have to sing along.

      It’s such a feel good tune, and a great opener. I’m sure it would get the audience’s interest from the start. Great to hear that you sang it in a pop choir 🙂

      Thank you for answering – always been intrigued – never wanted to ask a random person walking by.

      And from it being a vanity thing to it having some meaning in your life is a great step forward.

      I think as we all get older we become less interested in material things – and what people think of us. Personally I think they suit you, but don’t envy you wearing big heavy jewellery pieces in them 😊
