    I would think if your lungs were "crackling", that wouldn't cause pain..just coughing. But I'm not a doctor, so I guess I should just delete this huh?

    Hope you feel better.

    Real estate wheeling and dealing is always stressful! What part of the country is 'up North'?? I love the idea of moving to a beach - I always lived near water until I moved to Hamilton.

    I'm glad you're feeling fine now

    How're the house discussions going?

    "up north" is Red Beach/Orewa way! Nice up there!

    Interestingly re the crackling, I dont have a cough at all. Just that strange rib pain/pain on deep breathing sometimes. weird. Must get on and get the blood tests done, but it was raining today and I didnt feel like venturing out to Labtests in the rain. I'll do it next week.

    No discussions on the house/land purchasing. Fireman was exhausted when he got home.

    I've been eating crap all day. Going out for dinner to a nice restaurant with some friends tonight so I'll probably eat a bit better then. I will stay off the booze until my friends turn up

    well friday night I really did drink too many wines... I started later but trouble with going out is that the wine glass pours are a lot bigger than what I pour myself at home... so when i say i have had a couple of glasses of wine with dinner at home, thats probably like 1 glass of wine when I'm out... ah well, we had a nice night ... although as we arrived at the restaurant, there was a big choc brown lab running around rabidly on the footpath. I had seen him as we were pulling up and just thought he was with his owner and a bit boisterous. well by the time we parked and were getting ready to cross (a really busy road) I could see him running around. I was distraught and freaking out. I tried to catch him but he would have nothing to do with me. I enlisted the help of some random bystanders (the fireman by this time who has no interest in dogs WHATSOEVER had gone into the bar) (yes i know, why on earth do i love him). we just could not catch him... he ran across the road in front of all these cars and I swear my heart stopped and then raced, I was so close to howling. I got on the phone to the council dog control and told them to get down here NOW. by this time the dog had run a lot further down the street and i had lost all contact with him. Can you imagine how I felt. eventually I went into the bar and the fireman had bought me a drink (well I should fucking think so, thanks for your help ... NOT) i was about 1 inch from crying my eyes out. I just felt sick and worried and kept looking out the window in case the dog came back down the street again. It was a bit of a stressful start, so is it any wonder I downed my first 2 drinks pretty quick smart. add to that, our friends who we were meeting were late. Other than that, it was a nice night. I have no idea what happened to the crazy lab. I hope he found his owners. I think he'd been given an almighty scare already which is why he wouldnt let anyone get a hold of him. my heart is racing again just typing all this. I HATE THAT THE FIREMAN CAN BE SO COMPLETELY DISINTERESTED.

    weekend has gone by too qiuckly again. bit of gardening work today. I really have no idea what else I have done this weekend.

    we have booked tickets to go and see rod stewart in concert in Vegas.

    I bought some spelt sourdough bread today. I friggin hate gluten free bread. I love toast with my soup. so shoot me. someone explain how something that is supposedly so bad for us, tastes so good. On the plus side, dinner tonight was a butter chicken curry with cauliflower rice. Yeah, I'm having some problems with primal at the moment.

    Eat the toast! In fact go buy your favorite non "primal" loaf....

    Having dogs is an all consuming aspect, they are like kids! Their every basic need depends on us. As a german shepherd owner, I would not be buying land or home with someone who walks into a bar while im frantically trying to save a dogs life. Even if he doesn't like dogs, he could have supported you and your passions. Thats what kills me............But I'm sure like every relationship, there are 20 good points for every bad, so we choose our fancy. No woman or man is perfect and we all have a lot of great qualities that need to be considered above our personal hobbies and desires.

    Good luck Suse!

    AHH Evita, you are so wise. The fireman probably has about 100 good points more than this particular 1 bad point, but I do find it incredibly difficult at times. There seems to be no budging him, he just doesnt like animals in general really and doesnt understand why I do love them. Or maybe more to the point, he doesnt understand why we try to domesticate animals. My life since I became a dog owner has become so much more rounded, it really took a lot of my hard edges off me - I really dont think the fireman would have fallen in love with me if I had not ever been a dog owner. Sigh.

    As someone who has spent the whole weekend on dog-related things, I totally sympathise!! We're fostering a new greyhound who is crazed a lot of the time with the sheer newness of everything, and his needs rule our lives at present. I'd have been a mess about the lab, too.

    I'm heading off for a week of travelling around the NI next week, and will be enjoying bread, wine, and pretty much anything else that comes my way, lol. Can't wait!!

    well I hope you enjoy your week travelling Jac and it doesnt give you any flare ups!

    I needed an alcohol free night last night, so I asked the fireman to have a nice icy water ready for me when I got home (cause I have a bad habit of getting home, opening the fridge and pouring a glass of wine). He cooked a lovely dinner, sirloin, roasted veges, leeks and brocoli. He was very tired after two night shifts so we went to bed early. I was thinking oh I'm not really tired, and yet once in bed with the lights out I went straight to sleep (probably about 9pmish) and stayed that way until 5.30am. Even then I thought oh well thats that, and then I promptly fell asleep again until my alarm went off at 6.40am. Nice one!!! my bed looked like I hadnt even moved in it. I swear I could just get out of bed and pull up the covers and the bed was made! I was just talking about this in the kitchen at work, I think I love a good sleep more than I love wine. I wish I could figure out how to just stop at one glass.

    On my scales this morning, 53.8kg, 21.9bf. All good.

    Nothing else of interest to report.

    Pete doesn't really like dogs that much either, but when Charlie went missing, he left work early and hunted for him while I was sleeping for night-duty. So he's not such a hard-arse after all!

    As for the wine thing. I have trouble with the one glass thing too so I just don't have any. I'm actually having a dry July although it started on Sunday already. Maybe you should try it?
