 My kids are always coming up with new Apps for me to try but I'm not into 'Apps' and usually decline.

But one of them, can't remember who, told me to get 'Instagram' and just to please them I downloaded it.

Boy, am I glad I did.

This morning as with a lot of other mornings I am crippled with arthritis pains that seem to want to get into every joint in my body.

I limp out to the kitchen and make sure the cats are fed and the tray is clean, make my breakfast and sit feeling sorry for myself.

Then I remember 'Instagram' and start watching it.

All I can say is, thankyou for the recommendation, I love it.

If ever you need a laugh or something beautiful to watch 'Instagram ' has it.

I pick and choose what I want to watch and after having a laugh (all on my own) I feel better.

I discovered 'Only Fools and Horses' this morning and have laughed so much that I already feel better.

Laughter is the best medicine, and they are right.




  1. I use Instagram daily, it's a very useful platform, and loads of bloggers can be found there. Marlene, Poppypatchwork

  2. I thought instagram was like Facebook. have never seen instagram. so glad you found something to make you laugh. on FB i sit and watch the short videos and laugh, the tiktok stuff. i lke to watch the ones about dogs and cats

  3. Love Instagram! I'm glad you found it!

  4. They have electricity and running water these days too..

  5. I recently joined it, too! I love it! I have bad arthritis and have been suffering from it. Lately I have gotten it in my foot and it is painful to take each step. We both have it in our backs, and Phil has been getting injections. Getting old is definitely not for sissies! So are you using anything to help with the pain?

  6. I have an instagram account but haven't used it much in a very long time. Anything that makes you laugh and forget your aches for a bit is a good thing though.

  7. Oh dear - i can burn up so much time on instagram but it has been useful for craft ideas and inspiration. Its algorithms have picked up that I am a bit of an eco-nut and it feeds me a steady stream of green messages which I'd love to break out of. Variety is the spice of life.

  8. I disagree. The best medicine is "Lemsip" - widely available in pharmacies and supermarkets.

  9. It's a great app, but it can be addictive. Xx

  10. I have an Instagram account, it's very easy to pass the time on there.

  11. I agree! Laughter is the best medicine!

  12. I appreciate the clarity and conciseness of your writing style. It's refreshing.
