Hubby has been doing various bits and pieces in the bathroom, he has boxed in the horrible looking pipes in the bathroom and started painting the ceiling. Have to say it is looking a lot brighter.
Our first strawberries off of the plants in the garden, hubby says they are much nicer than the shop bought ones, make no odds to me they all taste the same time you cook them.
The lilies are looking very nice at the moment, so we moved them through to the front.

Away for some RAST tests and a look at my IgE levels as I am having major issues with food. Year on year more foods add themselves to the list of foods that cause serious pain. GP was worried I was cutting out too many food groups without good reason. Pain is a good enough reason for me. Hopefully these will come back with something meaningful. As a precaution I was given an Epi pen, Bob thinks this is brilliant, me I just think it is a nuisance. I am also being referred to an immunologist.
Out for the day with daughter, ex hubby, his other half and the four grandchildren. We went to The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel. The two older ones ended up soaked to the skin in the water play area, they must have been frozen as we were chilly with jackets on. A great day was had by all, blog post to follow.

I am a good mummy......look I take my child to the park too.....but this is just an extra to make you smile. Yes that is raindrops on the camera, the weather was typical blazing sunshine for a while followed by high winds and driving rain. Sssshhhh don't tell my daughter I have shown you this.
A friend mentioned that our tree that we planted a few years back was doing well, so we went for a visit. It is now over 6 ft tall and filling out nicely. We rescued this as a sapling when Shorty Dog dug it up about 16 years ago, it had been in a pot but was not doing well so we decided to chance it and plant it on our friends piece of land.
Before we moved we use to use an elderly couples garden as our allotment in return for keeping the garden tidy. We don't use it as an allotment any more as its too far out the way now but hubby goes up and keeps it tidy for them regardless. Their flowers were needing cut back and tidied so we
brought home enough for two vases and very pretty they look in my living room.
