Project 365 week 36 and 37

We went away for what was going to be ten days holiday, up to Oban to see DD2, SIL2, Ziggy and Roo. The holiday was spoiled by a) the rain, which normally does not stop me, and b) this hacking cough that is getting no better, in fact worse. Day and night walking and sitting, little sleep and pain shooting through my temples ever time I cough has just made me miserable and tired. Could not even think straight to knit properly, and realised I had started on the third sleeve for a cardigan I was knitting, so gave up on that. though I did manage a few pumpkin inspired items for the prem baby unit.

Came home early for a GP appointment, they have changed my inhaler. Changed me about 15 weeks ago when they sent me for a chest XRay. I had asked them to change again as I could feel the one they gave me was doing no good, but policy is minimum 3 months to give it time to work, so now passed the 3 month stage and they agreed to a change. The warning that comes with it says in some patients it can make symptoms worse and to inform the GP immediately but they still insisted I stay on it.

Was keeping everybody awake with my cough so took myself down to the couch, poor SIL slept down there the first night as I woke Ziggy so she went in with her mum and dad, I was not sleeping anyway so made no odds to me.

Sadly while we were there they had to say goodbye to Jack Jack, their 12 yr old golden lab, DD2 rescued him from the SSPCA when he was just a puppy. He has been on many an adventure with our dogs over the years. The first dog we had, Shorty dog, use to terrify him and he always came into our house warily and she use to pinch his bones and toys and lie on top of them so he could not get them. Run free Jack dog and hope Shorty dog is nicer to you at Rainbow Bridge.

So two weeks pictures, not in any particular order, just random ones from our time away as the brain is not functioning well.

Found this in our bed when we got back, and wondered where it had come from. Phoned DD1 to ask if it belonged to any of the kids as I knew she had been up while we were away. One of the local ladies paints rocks and I had admired this on her FB page. She had passed it to DD1 to give to me, so she tucked it into our bed for safe keeping.
Thanks Jeannie.
