Project 365 week 19

Sunday

The conference itself is ok but oh boy their catering is letting them down. I liaised with them before hand  giving them the huge list of foods I cannot eat, which includes dairy, any uncooked fruit and veg, and apples no matter how they are done. So they offer me cream of tomato soup because cream is not dairy, they make me a dairy free apple crumble and add tomato and lettuce to my burger, not to mention my snack was dried banana chips and dates. No wonder I never go out to eat. It is very embarrassing having to keep saying no I cannot eat that, no that is no good etc.  Think when I go back for the second half I will take food with me or ask for beans on toast.
I could not sleep and so was playing silly with the lights on all the adjacent hotel buildings




Monday
 No gym run as DD1 is on holiday with the children. Made Lilly some scrambled egg and she did not eat it, so I put it out for the birds and watched them all fly off to their various nests to feed to their young.





Tuesday

Lilly is seriously struggling to eat again and so back to the vets it was. We thought we may have to have an emergency call last night to them but managed to get her through it. Another steroid injection but this time I have asked for tests so next week will be a general anaesthetic and they are going to x ray her lungs and  do an endoscopy. When she is feeling crap for some reason she seems to prefer to sit with me.





Wednesday

A walk with Lilly today. Just a short gentle stroll.  She has managed to eat this morning so that is a good improvement. Seems to have a bit more energy and is breathing better.




Thursday

Been doing some sewing this week, got two pictures done. One of them  for Suzanne at Chicken Ruby. She wanted a multi coloured Flaming cushion cover so this was my design.




Friday


Down at the post office earlier and was watching the demolition of the old community centre, the new one is now in the new school along with the library. Impressed that all the stuff is being segregated into piles ready for recycling.








Saturday

I entered a blog post on Coombe Mill into the #Trash2Treasure linky last month and my post won. This was my prize. Will need to see what I can use it for. Thinking along the lines of button pictures with the tape as a border or maybe some more hama bead art. But that will need to wait until my applique picture list is completed.

  4. I never knew sparkly duck tape existed! Hope Lily is on the mend and feeling better. Eating out for you sounds horrendous - vegan is tricky enough but allergies are such a minefield.

    1. duck tape comes in amazing colours and patterns, glow in the dark and they even do a chalkboard tape. Hubby was disappointed as he expected original tape when I told him I had won.

  6. That is absolutely shocking that they can't get your dietary requirements right! With a proper list like you gave how hard can it be?! The flamingo cushion is amazing!!!

  7. poor Lilly, i hope you find out what is wrong with her soon. Can't wait to get my flamingo, i see they're very popular in the UK, taking over from the Unicorn craze now. that's pants about the food, i found when my son was on a restricted diet that the best thing for us to do was phone/email in advance with what he could eat, rather than what he needed to avoid, often we'd take our own food for him to restaurants

    1. yes I had emailed a list of what I could not eat, maybe I will try e-mailing what I can eat for the second half of the course instead. Hope you like your flamingo when you see it.

  8. awwww poor Lily dog, I hope it is nothing serious and she soon feels much better.
    What a shame about the catering - how hard is it to make food that does not involve the you cannot eat? pathetic is what! I would be very cross with them myself.
    I love the flamingo cushion design Elaine - its great xx

  11. Poor Lilly, how is she doing now? It must be such a nightmare with your food issues, and so frustrating when people just haven't taken on board your comments. #365
