Thinking about ads that appear on TV some of which I find completely ridiculous and most of which get muted very quickly. I am usually crocheting when watching TV so concentrate on that while the ads are on. Sometimes I feel there is a lot of false advertising and I remember years ago an ad that showed a child in a high chair eating an apple. When her mother offered her some kind of 'health' bar the child threw the apple on the floor and grabbed the bar. I reported that to the 'powers that be' who replied that the child could be seen eating a health bar which would be good for her. I am sure that same health bar would be full of fat and sugar....but that's modern times for you. I prefer an apple every time.
Long story a little shorter. Several years ago I decided I would take Panadol Osteo regularly. Recently I had seen health warnings about not taking too much paracetamol for adults or children so I thought perhaps it would be a good idea to have a break from them which is what I did. That was about 5 weeks ago and do you know I have no more pain now than when I was taking 6 tablets a day and, in fact, it's almost as though the pain is a little less!! Except for my back!!! This really does have me thinking.
Strangely enough, should Phil need a pain killer, he can take my panadol and it works for him. My only thought is my body had become so used to them they had become useless.
Fortunately our family all seem to be on the road to recovery. K's dizzy turns are almost over and B has stopped flying all over the countryside so they are both a little more settled. Granddaughter C has been home from hospital for a week and is on the mend and is thankful she has put that scary few days behind her. Great for her that there will be no more gall bladder attacks.
Our weather is still on the coolish side which is fine by me. I had to laugh the other day though. Our rain gauge had fallen over a few years ago and was put to one side. From time to time I mentioned to Phil it would be good to set it up again and the other day he said to come and look in the back garden and there it was....the rain gauge set up again. Only took about 4 years but I feel he may have upset the weather gods as we've not had a drop of rain since and there is little on the horizon from what I can see on the forecast. Oh dear!! What has he done?
Hope your weekend goes well for you. (*:*)
