Project 365 week 30

Sunday

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.

Monday

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.

home grown




Tuesday

The lilies are looking very nice at the moment, so we moved them through to the front.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday

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.





Friday

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.

Saturday

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.

  5. Love the work on the bathroom ceiling as completely relate! We moved into a house full of dark wood and have gradually been turning everything white!
    Sorry to hear about all your pain. You're right - pain is a good reason to cut foods out. I cut a lot of foods out a few years back and have now gone back to eating most of them, but it really helped my stomach.

  7. home grown / freshly picked strawberries always taste much better than the ones in the shop - they are so much sweeter.

  8. Very envious of your lilies, all mine were destroyed by the lily beetle. The photo of your daughter made me smile. And I agree with your husband, homegrown tastes better. :)

  10. love the flowers and the photo of your daughter at the park. You know what's best for you in regards to your diet, but make sure you're getting enough nutrients as you don't want to add any more problems to your health

  13. Painting the ceiling seems to be making a real difference. Good that your husband still looks after the garden for that couple and the flowers are lovely.
