Project 365 week 43

An update on Spud - she is a girl, I was going to share a picture of her as daughter was away for her twenty week scan but the scan pictures were not good enough quality to photograph.


Sunday

Came out of work as per usual at two o'clock as I have a break until four. The sun was shining, it was warm and far too lovely a day to go and sit in the library. The clocks change next weekend and it will not be long before it is too cold, wet and horrible to go for a walk. The hospital have just put in some new walkways to encourage both staff and patients to get out when possible. So I went for a walk, I wandered for over an hour and explored some of the paths. I came across wood henge. There were about ten feet tall. The was a bench on one of the walkways where you had amazing views out across the countryside. It was a very pleasant walk.

Monday

Normally on a Monday we watch the gruesome twosome while daughter takes Bob to gymnastics. As her car is unusable at the moment then we took Bob to gymnastics instead. Again by next week it will be just about dark time we drop him off so we went for a walk round a local country estate while he was in for the hour.

loved the contrast of green,brown and red. 




Tuesday

Had looked at the blackberry situation when out yesterday and thought as there was still plenty for picking we would go and get some more. Five pounds of blackberries were picked, and by this time it was getting dark so we gave up. Home to make crumble while the oven was on for tea anyway.

Wednesday

Spotted this and quite liked the sentiment on it, shame it wasn't in the centre of the frame. So bought it for hubby and it is now in the hall.






Thursday

The girls at work had asked me to stand as union rep for the weekend shift, and I had agreed. There is a lot of training to do before we can actually do anything. The basic course is five days, we had two a few weeks back and three this week. Once I have absorbed all this info I am sure there is plenty more to come.

abandoned at the end of the day



Friday

Have never been a lover of mint toothpastes or mouth washes and such like, but few decent options on the market. Spotted this and thought I would give it a try. Taste is bizarre to start with but is actually very pleasant.




Saturday

Have to say I am not a lover of a smear test, but feel it is necessary to have it done. So had mine a few weeks back, and got the results back saying all clear. That is me for three years unless I spot any symptoms.

  2. Uh to smears. I guess mine will be due in 6 months-ish I think. It's nice you've been able to get out on some walks. I love the woodhenge.

  4. It's great that you're making the most of the light and weather while you still can! The woodhenge is beautiful. 5lb of blackberries is a really decent haul!

  6. So Spud is a girl! WOO...
    We didn't have many blackberries to pick down here. Unlike last year!
    Yeah the smear test isn't welcome but it is necessary. My next one will be the last one as I'll be too old!!

    1. the first haul we got was bigger but we were beaten by the light. I just feel while they are there for the picking we should be picking them, No apples on the tree worth picking this year though

  7. 5 pounds of blackberries, wow! We still have some in the fields, but don't think there's enough for a pie. Congrats on another girl in the family! Good news re smear too.
