Hot Weather - Strong Winds - High Humidity

I thought what better way than to unwind after a long day on the beach than write a bit on the blog!  (Sad I know).  I have to say that I have felt so much better, the bones haven't ached as yet and the hotel have provided me milk so a bottle before I go to bed is helping and the sun and heat is marvellous.  The strong winds are a little  problem as I need to keep my head down so as not to be overwhelmed by the breeze.  I must admit though that the humid air last night did make breathing a little harder and at one point I felt like I wasn't breathing anything useful in.

What a small place this world is, sitting next to us on the beach are a mother and daughter, after a little bit of a chat we discover that my nephew goes to school with her daughter, the odds of that happening are what? 

Had a few frantic minutes in the airport.  I was carrying my tablets in handbag for safety but got stopped at the xray machine, my handbag showed that I was carrying something illegal.  My heart stopped .. I have all the paperwork in handluggage but lets face it you have armed guards and they open your side pocket and 40 morphine tablets fall out .. not good is it.  The young lady was quite slow at picking through the internal contents in the middle of my handbag and the young solider asked if I had a laser pen .. I don't even know what one is but I pulled our my E cig - it had to be destroyed and I was led off to the detained goods office.  As we were walking behind the solider I made hubby open up the hand luggage and threw my tablets in!  I was envisaging a strip search, my tablets been taken away and kept there till morning when they could phone the Department of Drugs to verify my permission to bring in my medication.  But then you start wondering if they have changed the laws since last May and you have to keep reapplying for permission.  Thankfully my e cig was the only thing taken and my handbag was not checked again!  I don;t know what it was that sparked the interest although I did have hubby's lighter in there as well.

Have already made three calls home as Lexi is having a little bowel trouble again, the good news is that she isn't biting her bum or her foot and the girls are getting loads of loves, especially off Bear Boy.  I forgot to prewarn them about his nightly habit and yesterday morning I woke up thinking I should have warned them and found myself laughing.

His habit, which is now nightly because I laugh so much, is trying to shove is nose up your bum when you are trying to get ready for bed.  You are fighting with your clothes to keep his nose out and for you to get changed, it looks like something off a dance floor routine turning this way and that.  He wags his tail and finds the whole experience exhilarating as he has me dancing around him one hand holding the front of my top down and the other holding the back down.  It can take upto 10 minutes to get from the toilet into bed dodging him this way and that.  So when I rang yesterday I said 'by the way Bear has this habit on a night of ' and I got back 'We know, we experienced it and thanks alot for the warning not!'  Funny how he doesn't do that to hubby ......

Time for our Peach Wine (non alcoholic) and a canape or two before a quick shower then out for a couple of drinks.  Looking forward to meeting up with our friends over here, unfortunately that won't be till Saturday but at least we will have some kind of suntan by then.  Sitting in the shade with factor 50 on. 

Well had better get a move on, shower is calling to clean my skin of the sand and lotion.  Will probably loose another 300 hairs from my head when I try to comb it after washing it.

From a very happy meso person who isn't in pain (for a change) have a good night
