DD3 treated us to lunch out today and then came back to go and see her sister and the children. This is her bag.

Well I am in Scotland and it is the 25th Jan so well else could I share but hubby's tea? I had it without the haggis.

Decided I needed something to snack on and these were still unopened from Christmas, so I opened them and had a handful.
Went round to play with the grandkids for a few hours to give mummy some peace. It stopped raining so we went to play in the small park. I encouraged them to run and ride rather than play on the swings to expend some energy. They spent awhile rounding up stones putting them on the bench and knocking them off again.

Went to get blood tests today. Had to be fasting blood test, looking for vitamin and mineral deficiencies as well as cholesterol and blood sugars. So came for breakfast afterwards before doing some shopping. So far had results of U's and E's back which shows a very slight issue with my kidneys, so to get that test repeated in three months.

Storm Gertrude has hit, not as wild here as other parts of Ayrshire seem to be getting. The tractor was on the beach dragging all the sand back from the wall before the next high tide hit.

I was asked a few weeks back if I would like to join in and promote #KnitforWinter Campaign that is being supported by Sunrise Senior Living. They have partnered with a baby charity called First Touch to gift premature babies with hats and blankets. Premature babies struggle to keep themselves warm and need more help than full term babies. Fifi was ten weeks premature so we understand the stress and worry this creates for a family, as well as the problem of getting clothes that fit. It is a nice easy campaign and it is a great way to use up scraps of wool you may have. You can download the patterns here if you fancy joining in. I agreed to knit a blanket and the wool and needles were sent to me to allow me to do this.
