Day 87 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

Well, i’m doing OK, not as bad as I thought I would be, it’s pretty boring to be stuck at home and not be able to go to the Co-op – thankfully Seonaid has very kindly brought us supplies. I’m still a bit bunged up and having pyjama days – i mean, who is going to visit the “plague house” anyway, and i’m not going anywhere. MisterT picked daffs and gorse from the garden and brought inside for me 🙂 Bless him <3

Pyjama day haha!
Daffs and gorse from the garden – my gorse bush grew from a wee cutting from the one I had at my house in Carloway, Lewis 🙂
I still have my birthday and get well cards up on the side, makes me feel more cheerful 🙂

Day 85 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

Not feeling too bad, mostly a very annoying bunged up nose which is worse at night. I’m hitting the “garlic/lemon concoction” hard so I expect I stink haha – probably a good job i’m still in the spare room… Photo is my morning drink – overnight I steep an organic green tea bag and an organic Hibiscus tea bag in 500mls of cold water, in the morning I squeeze the juice of an orage and the juice of a lemon into it and add one tablespoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar, I drink this before breakfast and I also take vitamin D3 (in a spray form), I’ve been having this daily since returning home from having my op.

Day 82 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

Ian tells me he had a rough night and doesn’t feel much better. His covid test this morning is positive, hopefully he’ll soon be on the mend… We’ve managed to avoid this for the last three years, thankfully we’ve both had all our vaccines/boosters. I really don’t want this thing though, i’m only just over five weeks post-op and not sure how well my body will be able to fight it off. I think it’s inevitable that i’ll get it though 🙁

Day 81 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

Ian has felt dreadful all day, he got up late, was only up for three hours, had lunch and went back to bed all afternoon – most unlike him, I’ve never known him to take to his bed before, he’s never ill, usually has the constitution of an ox. I tested him for covid this evening and it’s still negative. I don’t understand how he can feel so awful and not have it.

Meanwhile i’m still trying to do the best I can to avoid it, juicing fresh veg, taking my supplements and i’ve decamped down to the spare room, though it’s probably too late…

Juicing those germ-fighting veg…

Day 80 / 365 – Photo a Day Project 2023

At lunchtime headed to Am Politician in Eriskay for my birthday lunch, we took Seonaid, Bill and Norma were also supposed to be coming but last Thursday Bill came down with the covid and at the weekend Norma started testing positive too 🙁

A lovely lunch was had by all – this place is consistently good and the staff are fab.

In the evening Ian started feeling unwell with a sore throat and a”funny” head. He’s testing negative for covid.
