A bit of this and a bit of that

I know I haven't done any blogging for a while, though quite a bit has happened in the past couple of months, nothing extra-ordinary, but it had taken my appetite off blogging,  also this cold weather just makes me feel so miserable.
As you may recall before Christmas October actually] I lost my little special friend Tango, Christmas came and we had a bit of a shock with a family member, which among other things lost me a fair sum of money.
Then at the end of January I lost my brother, next I had to have an operation to have a bit of sun damaged skin removed from my head, as they can be cancerous, that was pretty painful and thankfully they're sure it's all gone, here is a photo of me after the op
it looks like I've been shot, doesn't it.  It's taking some time to heal. About four days after the op I had to travel up to Edinburgh for my brother's funeral, My head was quite swollen and throbbed continually. It took two attempts to take out the stitches.  Just a timely warning folks, If you are fair skinned with blue or grey eyes, in fact Celtic colouring, be very careful about being in the sun. I don't sunbathe but it was enough to give me these basal cell carcinomas, It was the size of a pimple, but wept ever so slightly, a tiny secretion the size of a pinhead, but it was enough for my doc to send me to have it cut out. 
Anyhow got over that lot and the other night we had a power cut for almost a whole day, no heat or light on one of the coldest days of the year. Next thing, my boiler has decided to give up the ghost. that was yesterday. Nearly forgot to mention, some scumbag went into the back of my car in the car park
splitting the bumper .Oh well maybe things will improve like the weather, which was almost springlike to-day. 
Keep well and see you soon

Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby


  1. I'm glad the caught it in time. You're wound will heal and you will forget about it in a short while. Have a great Sunday.

  2. Skin cancer is treacherous. My sis had several surgeries on her face because of it. I have had many precancerous things removed from my skin due to many years of sunbathing. If I could only do it over I would never sun bathe. xx

  3. Oww and Wow, Arlene, as Beth says, skin cancer is a treacherous thing ... Good thing that it was noticed and you had it treated... As to the other bad things which have occurred, doesn't life have a habit of hitting you hard. I think it's like a testing time, almost to see how much you can take. Warmest of hugs to you 'n Ruby lovely friend, I wish I had a magic wand, trouble is it'd be overworked and probably have a breakdown. (I think of Tango every time I visit you, and of course my Girl... and like clockwork, my eyes mist over... sheesh!!) xPenx

  4. Those stitches do look rather grotty, I bet you were so relieved to know it wasn't cancerous. Sunshine is so tempting as we don't see much of it these days. Oh heck!!
    Hugs Sheila xx

  5. Hi Arlene

    I am so sorry to hear all your bad news, isn't it funny how bad things always seem to happen together,
    Things can only get better from now on
    My thoughts are with you
    Big hug
    Lo xxxx
