So here we were, up at the crack of sparrows, bright and early, leaving Daisy and Flossie in charge of all the animals as well as any chores they felt like doing.
OH kindly drove as I don’t trust my legs on long distances now.
There was a beautiful sunrise which we commented upon as it kept going.
We drove past the boat (the 14 hour trip overnight ferry from Lerwick to Aberdeen) which had berthed a few hours earlier.
And, quite frankly, if I hadn’t had to have these spinal injections, I would’ve been off with my camera trying to photo the incredible sky and sea. This is the hospital carpark at 09:00.
There was a bit of waiting in my cubicle. I think they were running late.
After the agony, not enough intravenous gin (there never is these days) and once I was considered compos mentis enough, I was given a bottle of water with some Digestive biscuits. Proper ones. McVities ones. Perfect post-injection fodder.
OH drove me home and I went to bed with full nursing staff.
Staff Nurse Soufflé was supportive in every way but mostly because Daisy brought me a chicken sandwich as well as many cups of tea for lunch. I was starving.
BeAnne is always supportive. Perhaps overdoing it a bit. The sandwich called to her.
So that is that and I pray the injections work. F&D held the fort admirably. Cooking, cleaning and general animal slavery – even Lambie got his biccies!
