It must be very frustrating still having to cope with your ear problem. As my Mum had tinnitus for many years I have some understanding of it'slong term effects. Unfortunately no cure for it but they only ever offered 'masking noise' as a solution. Like you she just used to say 'will have to learn to live with it' and there was always background noise (usually the radio) whever she was (she used ear phones a lot to listen to music too). Nowadays she does not mention it but then she rarely talks and in old age became a little deaf too.
Yes, it was lovely catching up with my daughter and family and we enjoyed a nice pub meal out too. I will see them again in mid March as they have invited me to visit for Mothers' Day. My son and family are also going so will give me a lift so looking forward to having a date in the diary. Today is full of the lovely memories ofmy son and daughter in law's wedding (their 1st anniversary today though they have been together 9 years!!).
Lovely sunny weather this morning so am trying to decide where to go later. A nearby town centre is having Chinese New Year displays this afternoon so may go take a wander. As I am having some work done in the house over the coming weeks I need to find things to keep me occupied and then I can escape from the noise ha ha. Will be relieved when it is finished (as no doubt will my neighbours!!).
Enjoy the celebratory Chinese Meal with your sister on Monday. Take care. Jules x
