My bi-annual birthday present from the NHS, my bowel screening test duly filled and returned.

hot chocolate and a doughnut. I had been a nice mummy, my daughter likes Morrisons jam doughnuts, so I bought two lots, dropped hers off on the way home then had mine with hot choc topped with mini mallows, yum yum

We braved the weather and went and checked on one of our geocaches, all in aid of testing out the new sat nav that we bought, lets just say it failed miserable and so we took it back and swapped it for another one. Despite the very srrong wind it was nice to get out for a walk.

We drove past this, and just had to stop, turn round and come back and take a fw pictures. Its a Del Boy car all painted up for Christmas. The garden also had a lot of lights and inflatables in, will go back one evening when it is dark and have a look at it again.

SIL was away down south with work for two days, so to help out I took theses two and Bob out for a while. It was cold, first real cold day we have had this winter I think, They played happily for a while but then Minky fell over and I think his hands were that cold it hurt so once we had dried the tears we went home, Sadly at this age they will not keep hat and gloves on. First time their Toddlebikes2 have been out, they managed quite well on them.
Had a repeat visit to the anaphylaxis clinic in Glasgow this evening. The blood tests he did the last time along with the history he took confirms my issue is with tree pollen and that is why I have an issue with anything that grows on a tree. My body sees fruit and nuts as pollen and attacks it. So basically to keep away from anything that grows on a tree, though I find ( at the moment anyway) I tolerate most fruit cooked, but that could change as until I hit the menopause I never had any of these issues. Advises again that I never leave home with out the epipens and there is not much else they can do for me. Least I know where I stand.

We all have daft family things that we do. For the last years when we have taken Bob to see Santa at our local Dobbie's we have met up with a friend and sat and coloured in the children's colouring sheets with the crayons they provide. So we have escalated this up to taking our own pictures and crayons and sitting and colouring them in. Yes I know we are daft!! So we now get a member of staff to pick a winner. So far every year it has been Bob who has won, well he is the only child there so could be a bit of cheating going on to let him win. This year while we were there Santa took some time out from his busy schedule to come and talk to Bob and have his picture taken.

When I had my last smear test I was told I had a slight prolapse and she suggested pelvic floor exercises for 15 minutes a day. I have to say I do not remember to do them so I treated myself to a machine to do it for me. Early days yet, they say tweleve weeks, so will let you know if I feel it has helped.
