Bitten on Friday night when out for a walk. A visit to the Emergency department yesterday afternoon with a blue line drawn round it by the doctor and a high dose of antibiotics to take for a week. I took this picture and I drew the red line Sunday morning after speaking to the doctor again to see if it came up much more. Thankfully it did not, but did take about five days to go down.
Hubby needed rid of the unused old washing pole that is in the way of the wall he is building.
Bob was away for a hospital appointment so I had the three wee ones to look after for the afternoon, so we went to the park.
The new car has a couple of issues so this morning I dropped it off this morning, had it walk and bus it back, and typical the first day of rain we have had in weeks. DD1 ran me in to pick it back up.
Ziggy and her mum were down for a few days. Here is one rather warm Ziggy with granddad.
We had a visit day to Stirling and then in the evening a walk down the woods with the dog.
Here is Mia talking to the dog next door.
DD1 was away again to the hospital, this time for standard eye tests for the twins, so she had asked her sister if she would babysit Bob and Spud. So I got the easy job.....babysitting a sleeping Ziggy with instructions to wake her at 3.30 pm. Here we are enjoying a snack in the garden with a seat and table granddad fashioned her from some of the bricks for the wall,
Something different to take to work for lunch time. Some red, white and black quinoa cooked in almond milk with added sultanas and dates.
No overtime today so a walk round the fishery tonight. The lack of rain is having a big impact on the water levels in the pond. It is usually up beyond the level of the grass on the LHS of this picture.
Took the dog a walk to Auchincruive, she likes to run around the open fields here. Decided to see what was at St Quivox, a small hamlet, with a strange name that is about a quarter of a mile away from the entrance to Auchincruive. The answer is not a lot, but we walked round the graveyard as I love reading headstones.
The car went back again to the garage, booked in and dropped off as requested in the morning. When I phoned at 1.30 it had not even been looked at so fed up of hanging round the town I went home and then had to bus it back in again to pick it up....they did not have the parts for two of the three things needing done so booked back in for Friday morning.I was not at all amused with them, could have worked my day much easier had I dropped it off at 1.30 instead of 9am.
DD1 had an appointment with one of Bob's specialists today to discuss a new treatment and which way they are going to take it. Was no point in Bob going as it would have been above his comprehension level so DD1 went herself and will explain it to him for him to be involved on the decision making when she gets home. So I took the four of them to Rozelle Park to do some rock painting, have a picnic, pick up their painted rocks to hide and see if we would find others to move on.
Was going to go and do some geocaching round somewhere we have never been before but the sat nav took us up a farm road that at the end of it had a sign saying no vehicle access to where we wanted to be, so guess there must have been another way in. So instead we went to Dean Park and walked miles round there with the dog instead.
Picked up our first geocache in about 18 months while there.This is one of our many stops for a drink. Try to stay under tree coverage as is cooler there.
Car went back in this morning. One of the issues is the fumes coming into the car when driving it, so having to drive with windows open and air vents shut. Well it came back out with a very very smelly air freshener in it, and time I got home the fumes were building up inside the car again. How do you get a so called reputable family run business with garages in more than one town to do a job properly?????? I suppose my husband could sue them once the build up of fumes kills me!!!! Have to say this whole thing is stressing me out. I like the car, lovely to drive so don't want to reject it as I have a right to do but if they cant sort it then I will have to. Going to phone the after sales team on my break today and see what they suggest.
DD1 brought the grandkids up for a visit. Played some games and they played in the garden as well.
The dog seems to have issues with Bob so he spent the time sat with him and granddad and feeding her biscuits as well. She is very nervous round him despite the fact he has never done anything to her.
Made some blueberry and sultana cakes with some left over cous cous to add goodness and used wholemeal flour for a change.
