Project 365 week 24

Fifi is back at school after her exams this week, into her final year, what we call 6th year and has her choices picked but some of these may change if she does not get the results she hoped for in her exams.I am sure she will. She may need to change if she needs to resit.
Sat and watched my way through "The Kettering Incident" was quite good but a strange end.....not sure if it has been left open for season 2 or not. Started watching Tunnel as well, bits in both French and English as a police programme based on a murder in the Eurotunnel.

Sunday

DD3 and SIL3 were away for a long weekend for his 30th birthday last week, went to do a Silverstone experience plus a few other things. While they were away they wandered into a shop and he spotted wool, and bought this for me. Beautiful colours, I especially like the florescent yellow and orange in the middle, it will go lovely with the multicoloured either side of them.






Monday
A run into town and then our friend came back here where friend did another project in the shed and then went fishing after tea; Was about 11pm when hubby got back because it is light until gone 10 now.
Fifi came up to pick up information I had printed for DD1 as her printer was out of ink and she is doing her final exam of the year for her open uni course tomorrow and needed it to take with her.
Fifi  really is a very nice, considerate, pleasant young lady who seems to have her head screwed on right ( most of the time). She was here for about 45 mins.
I bought this wee box to hold my knitting to keep my corner in the living room a bit tidier.






Tuesday

Dropped hubby off at the red bridge where him and dog walk the 2.5 miles to friends house, one of the big benefits of friend is how active this has encouraged hubby to get. .
Fell asleep when I got home, but needed to go and do some shopping, so we headed to Irvine and walked the dog at the beach park first and then shopped. I did buy throw in the oven food for tea as it could have been cooking while I unpacked the shopping, but realised it was gone 9pm time we got home and I did not fancy eating anything cooked that late at night. So a sandwich and a doughnut was had instead.





Wednesday

Nothing much happening. A walk round the fishery "before it rained" but the rain never appeared.
Phoned for a GP appointment for a named GP as she has been dealing with me lately and managed to get one for the same afternoon. We agreed a change of inhalers but to leave everything else the same at the moment. On maximum doses of other medication already.
To go back in a month for an asthma review.
Managed to get signed up to our GP Practise online so now can order prescriptions and make appointments without phoning.



Thursday

Again it was forecast for heavy rain so the plan had been a pile of housework and then I was determined to sit and spend some time with a crochet pattern, I have crocheted since I was about 9 but have only ever followed a pattern, only thing I have ever made has been granny squares made from treble stitch, I want to be able to do more.
The rain never appeared so we went for a two hour walk down the woods with dog, came back and did housework and then did some crochet. Took a ridiculous time to make a few small squares but it was a learning curve.
I have a knitted project on the go and usually finish one piece before I started another but decided not to this time. Think I may have to buy another box for my crochet.



Friday

A walk round Auchincruive with hubby and dog, getting rather overgrown on the top path so made for a difficult start to the walk with branches and bushes spreading into the pathway.
Bob has his last week of gymnastics as our schools break up next week, So I took the three wee ones to the park while DD1 picked Bob up. They love to play hiding on the way back home, the three of them crouch down behind a bench and I have to pretend I have lost them till they jump up and shout boo. They also hide behind this container. I crept up on them as they were running away.




Saturday

DD3 and I are away for a bike ride as part of  Women's Cycle Festival Event run by Active Travel hub. Did invite Fifi along but she has other plans. 
I got to use an amazing electric bike, even had an auto gear changer, I have always struggled with gears and use to stick  mine in a middle gear and left it there. So if any of you have £2,200 lying around spare give me a shout and I will buy one. I did not use the electric boost for a lot of the way but wanted it in case I struggled with my breathing, but I didn't. We did 8.9 miles on the bikes and then we walked another 4 miles round the town and over to meet hubby with the car to come home again.   
I won a book called Knit 1 Bike 1 a knitting and cycling tour of Scotland, a good win for me. 



Total mileage now equals 835.14 for the year.

Project 365 week 23

Nothing much any different this week, working, knitting, walking and grandchildren.

Sunday

A double shift at work,. Sat working on my latch hook kit and watching wire in the blood on my kindle in my break. My back shift was a great laugh, you had to be there to get it,  but despite being harder work than a back shift normally is it was fun.




Hubby dropped me at work and took dog a walk, managed to lose her but thankfully found her again.  Told him he needs to be more vigilant about where she is when out for walks as he has a habit of walking on not realising she is not directly behind him. She seems to struggle with working out which direction you are shouting her from when out.
He took friend to the car boot where they got a few bits to work on the project he started in the shed last week, back here to work on it and then fishing in the afternoon before picking me up.



Monday

Still making items for the SCBU in between my own knitting so made a hat and a small blanket this week.The blanket is a trial run for something else I am making.





Tuesday

A friend of mine is struggling at the moment with anxiety attacks. These helped me years ago when I was stressed etc so dropped them off for her to try them. The tape ( if it still plays) was given to me by a psychologist when I was referred to one when my own children were young and I was struggling to cope with their illnesses, hospital stays and operations. Actually found it very good.


Friend came up and finished his project in the shed and him and hubby went fishing again when I got home. I spent the afternoon watching some of Save Me. The knitting I did I undid again as did not like the way it was turning out. Had a committee meeting this evening. Trying to come up with a new name and ideas of things for the children to do down the woods while the adults make walk ways or cut back trees. It is no longer about cleaning up but about enhancing what we have down the woods.

Wednesday

A rather wet day so did not do a lot. Started knitting the blanket I undid yesterday. It dried up after tea so dog got round the fishery. I think having got lost on Sunday has dented her confidence a bit and she was not straying very far away.


We started watching Chernobyl. I know I am behind but find it easier to remember and enjoy if I tape them all and watch over a few nights rather than week by week.

Thursday

Was a nice day, warm and dry, so we made the most of it and once I had caught up with the housework we went out for the day. Went to Portencross and then to a Glen in West Kilbride. I had a trackable to get rid of and needed to find a cache to put it in.We did nearly 6 miles and have to say I felt fine during and after it.

When we got back hubby went out fishing again with friend, friend again has some new stuff he wants to try out and is too impatient to wait and will not go by himself.




Friday

Went a did some shopping and took the dog a walk as hubby wanted the car to go back to the fishing.
Spent the afternoon making meals for the weekend and doing some baking before going down to watch the three wee ones while DD1 went to pick up Bob. She had asked me to pick him up but hubby was out with friend again and not back with the car. Life is easier now they are getting bigger and can push themselves on the swings so just Spud to push.

Did not get a lot of time to sit down but did finish watching Save me. Left hanging a bit I feel, maybe an opening for series 2.




Saturday

I have been seriously bothered with hay fever these last few weeks. Not been bothered with it in years but my nose won't stop running and my eyes are that itchy I would cheerfully scratch them with sand paper. Hoping these will help. Would not be so bad but the runny nose is causing a cough and the cough is keeping me awake at night.
