We’re doing an 18th birthday party barbecue for the daughter of the Ukrainian family we know.
It’s more yay, than nay as the weather is perfect and they are all loving it, but I’d still rather they hadn’t had to leave their home.

It’s a huge nay but also a huge yay. Hang on to the fact that they are safe and have found friends and comfort in your kindness x

It was a really rather excellent afternoon. I don't want to put pictures on here, but I'll send you a couple direct.

Yay! The extractor fan in the kitchen is working for the first time since we moved in. Nay! Not before grandad electrocuted himself whilst repairing it (he’s fine, just a bit shocked)(lol).

Not (yet) bought the really useful trolley for carting shit and kids around a field so using the bike trailer next weekend.

A few running repairs and upgrades explained here

The smuggling compartment is well named. I had not thought of it like that.

i have a feeling my two youngest may now be a bit too big for the trailer as I haven't used it for about 2 years.

Nay: I got bitten/stung by an insect on my foot a couple of weeks ago and I’ve had some kind of bad reaction to it as my whole foot swelled up and has been bruised and itchy since.

Nay: I had to have (unrelated) blood tests yesterday.

Yay: when I asked the practice nurse yesterday who I should see about my foot (doctor/nurse/chemist) she said the clinical pharmacist, but as I was leaving she said ‘let’s see that foot’ and looked at it for me, and prescribed me some antibiotics without making me make another appointment with someone else.

Yay: and the swelling is down today and my foot looks much better, even though I haven’t taken the antibiotics as they only arrived this afternoon, so I may not even need to take them.

Heh, that's often the case. By the time you get a doctor's appointment you often feel.better.

I'm glad you're on the mend though. :)

Yeah, I’m glad it’s sorted itself out too. It wasn’t bothering me too much (apart from being sore and itchy) and I doubt I’d have actually made an appointment, and probably would have just kept an eye on it a while longer. I was mostly happy for the nurse being so kind and making that time.
