Can We Send Some Collective Get Well Soon Vibes to Willow?

Hot on the heels of telling you about me and my daring, I heard from our dear Blog Sis Willow of Willowdot21.

It appears our dear Willow has got herself into a bit of a pickle, and possibly won’t be on the blog for a few days.

If you are a Facebook friend with her, you will have seen her hand.

The dangers of cuts, last week I caught my finger on the wooden slats in the airing cupboard. Clean, covered and checked it, Sunday and yesterday it was swollen band painful last night sleepless, today could not move it for pain, whole hand and arm hurts. Spent morning waiting to see the Dr. It’s infected, on antibiotics, tired and headachy feeling rough. On heavy duty antibiotics, have to keep an eye on it and return if it gets any worse.

Willow’s words

Well, today she ended up admitted to hospital.

The finger got infected and a red line of infection has spread up her arm. She is on IV antibiotics with her arm suspended above her head.

Had it not been caught as quick the infection could have spread to her knuckle, and there was a danger of sepsis…

Get well soon sis!

There was even talk of an operation so we need to send prayers that she heals without the need of a knife.

#JusJoJan – January 21st, 2018 – Silence

Day twenty-one of #JusJoJan!

I’m going to try to write on each of the prompts!

Today the prompt is:

Your prompt for January 21st, 2018, brought to you by my dear blog sis Willow, is Silence.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Willow at her blog, “Willowdot21” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:

Thanks, Sis!


Silence can be truly golden.

It can show the peace, the spiritual sanctity of a blessed mind.

A place where there is no need for words or conversations, just a feeling of contentment.

But silence can also be harrowing.

Words that need to be spoken, yet left unsaid.

A waiting period where you don’t hear a thing…

Personally, I prefer an atmosphere with the quiet (not often!) chatter of my kids, the chirruping of my birds, the purring of my cat, and the presence of my Hubby Dearest. He’s not a man of many words, but knowing he’s by my side is enough…

When in the company of friends, I want to hear laughter, and meaningful conversation.

Silence… now I need that when I’m reading!!!

See you tomorrow!

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 17th/17 – Complaint

Day 17 of Linda’s #JusJoJan challenge hosted most ably again by Shan Jeniah Check out her blog here.

The Just Jot It January 17th prompt, brought to you by  Willow, blogging at Willowdot21 is: “Complaint.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Willow as well! Here’s her blog:

Do you complain?

Have you ever made a complaint?

Or is it too much hassle, or far too embarrassing to raise an issue?

It’s funny, but here in the UK, I think we get plenty of people who are ready to complain about anything, from the weather to the state of the transport network, from the size of new chocolate bars to the current government.

But do they actually do anything?

It’s all well and good discussing what is is wrong with the world, and comparing gripes over a good old British cup of tea, but what about acting on it?

I know as one person you can’t often do much to change the big things, but you can act on smaller issues! So who knows? If there are enough of you who agree on something bigger, maybe you could stand up for what you believe in!

Little complaints can result in minor victories, like when we went out for a meal, and the food was atrocious. A few words in the servers ear, and we got a discounted bill and a free dessert!

Or when the TV bill was creeping up, Hubby Dearest calling and complaining that loyal customers weren’t rewarded, instead, he best deals went straight to new customers… after a little while, we were rewarded with 6 months discounted rates!

I have to say, personally, I find it hard to complain. I end up being the one apologetically pointing out the problem, with a “Sorry to have to tell you but…” and then ending with a “So sorry I bothered you…” I end up being a bit too compliant instead!

I know I am polite, but sometimes it really doesn’t help!

Last year, when we had HUGE issues with our Hotpoint appliances, Hubby Dearest was on a total mission to get our items either repaired, replaced or refunded. He is fantastic on the phone, and though it took a heck of a long time, during which he did the talking and I did the social media campaign, we got cheques through for the washing machine, and dryer, and also the previous dryer which had also been plagued with the same problems!

See, it can do good to complain!
