No overtime today unfortunately but decided to use my time wisely and entered a pile of large value postcard entry competitions. Well I won't win if I don't enter. Having said that I posted them on Monday and got three of them back on Tuesday. Guess the postman was not sensible enough to realise the large written address was where it was to go and not the smaller address label added sideways.
Finished the table cloth for my sewing table, it is to cover the sides to hide the disaster underneath it.
Not the most beautiful material but some of the remains from the start of the year when I was buying odd bedding to practise with.
Took Bob to gymnastics. It is a three mile drive from our village to the next one, less than a five minute drive. Just as we drove into the next village Bob tells me he does not feel well, he felt sick. So a quick indicate into the very convenient street on our left and get him out onto the grass, Luckily he was not sick but we turned round and went home again. He was sick a few times in the evening.
Bob was diagnosed last month with Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) and have to admit to it worrying me. His other medical issues are visible and/or audible and are easier to detect but this one is neither and can prove fatal. If you consider he gets higher priority with this from the ambulance service than a heart attack victim, that will let you know how serious it can be. Vomiting is one of the things that needs to be taken seriously.
Poor Fifi also came home from school saying she felt sick and spent the night vomitting as well.
Having popped a post onto a AI Facebook page last night asking for the best was to deal with giving the drugs to Bob that is required during this type of illness to save deterioration. Somebody kindly popped this information sheet onto my post.
Spotted these in the reduced section of the supermarket, cost 25% of the last packet I bought. Can't resist a bargain, and it is not as thought they can go off.
A visit to the dentist, not my favourite pastime I have to say. But needed a cracked back filling redoing and a chip on a front tooth sorting. The front tooth will be all the years of using my teeth to open packets and cut sellotape etc.
Having finished my crocheting I need a portable project on the go for breaks at work and waits at hospitals. Decided as Spud is the only one without a piece of cross stitch work with her name weight and date of birth on it I am going to make her one similar to what the twins got last year. Should be finished for her birthday in March.
We finally took delivery of our new shed yesterday. Only ( ha ha) took about seven weeks since we ordered it.
It came yesterday and luckily today was dry so it is up, windows in and roofing felt on. The finishing touches need doing but should be wind and water tight for the wet and windy weekend we are due.
Popped down to watch the three wee ones while DD1 took Bob to his after school activity.
DD1 was at the specialist with Bob today for his AI. At least after Monday night gave her an opportunity to ask questions she may not have thought about.
Finished the blanket I have made for a dog rescue site. They are always fund raising and the last one I made went for £18 so hoping this will go for good money as well. Happy to personalise it with a name should the winner wish.
If you wish to place a bid on it feel free you should find it here
