On the feeling well front, I am feeling slightly better thank you!! The cold seems to be working it's way down my body: headache, sinus, ear ache, stuffy nose, and now tickle in the sore throat and an annoying cough. Give it another week and just my toes will be sore and it will be over!!! And look, it's Autumn!!!
This is a little catch up of a few things. Way back in August last year I began my No Commercial Bottle of Shampoo or Conditioner Hair Washing Policy. So far I have used two and a bit bars of the special soap and two and a bit bottles of cider vinegar. All in all it has gone very well. It is much cheaper than my old routine of shampoo and conditioner since I am not MrsDrWho with her endless stash !! I stick the end of the old bar onto the new one. My hairdresser hasn't said anything untoward about my hair either.
Laurie gave me an award. It is Happy 101 and if I was really so nice and happy and sweet I would have acknowledged it sooner. I am acknowledging it now: Thank you Laurie. Typically, I am unable to choose people to pass it on to, so award yourself!!! Go on, you deserve it.
I finally retrieved my lost ball of wool from MrsDrWho's house when I took The Kittens to The Vet to be vaccinated this morning and I have crossed The Rubicon of the pointy bit of the Baktus-without-a-better-name-yet and it's all decreasing from here on in!!
On our Thursday walk we met Ochre and her mum at the dam. Ochre is 3 1/2 and she's a Kiwi!! She came over here to be trained as a Guide Dog and made it almost to the very end. They waited for her to be slightly less enthusiastic and energetic, but luckily for her mum, she retained her enthusiasm for life!! She's a Labrador Golden Retriever cross and Peri, Lorelai Gilmore and Ochre had a wonderful game together!! Ochre is very well behaved!! In the picture it is, from left to right, Gilly, Ochre and then Peri at the front. All Labradors have amazing ears!!!
I have joined Melissa's Fat Quarter Swap and today, at the death knell, I posted off my seven identical Fat Quarters to be divvied out to the others. We'll all end up with eight FQs and then we have to make something!! I have a few ideas rattling around in my head. I had a lovely time folding the material using this tutorial. Then I added a small tag and posted them off. I cartoonised the photo so no googling Swappers!!!
Finally, one day shy of six weeks, my letter from the RBF arrived and it was a positive result. They agree with my diagnosis and this time I have a four year gap until the next Medical Review. While there are some aspects I am still not happy about, it is a good positive outcome. I am very lucky to have had wonderful support to see me through the whole process and am relieved that The Labradors won't have to starve because I can't work!!! My next goal is to be well enough to go to MrsDrWho's for tea and Doctor Who on Sunday night. Finger's crossed!!
