I got up at 6.30 am, woke the dog, fed the cat, had a coffee, walked the dog, had breakfast.
Left the house at 8.10am drove to Bristol.
Dropped Neil at Frenchay Hospital for his first appointment at 9.45.
Drove to Get Knitted, shopped, chatted left at 10.20
Did the weeks food shop and left there at 11.15
Then it went a bit wrong, I took the wrong exit on a roundabout, I went on thinking that there would be a turning to the left - there wasn't. So I turned round and went back to the roundabout and took the right road and the hospital was easy to find.

By then Neil was waiting at a bus stop in the rain (and had been for a little while, whoops)
We had a detour to Hobbycraft in Gloucester on the way home (didn't but anything)
Home at 13.20, lunch.
Walked dog at 15.00, then fed dog

Now exhausted. Need to work out what to feed us...

Neil had lots of pre op tests, blood, ecg, etc. The CT scan was only 5 minutes and no bother.
I have loads of bits of paper to read before he goes in. They dont know when it will be yet, but he should only be in for two days, hopefully within the next month.

The waiting is not good for us...

Girl duck has a nest somewhere and only visits for a short time each day.

She gave me a shock landing in the pond while I was taking the next photo...

And this is my haul from Get Knitted.

A huge Namaste bag with lots of pockets and a zip to make it's gusset larger (it was in the sale, only £20!!)
And a couple of balls of crazy sock (couldn't decide on the colour I liked) and a ball of green sock that will be a shawl as well.

And then there are a couple of crochet hooks.

Now I really need to go and get some food, and then I can stop being the responsible adult. I have some very silly things planned to make but they might take me a while...

I think your namaste bag will be well used for the next few hospital trip till you get Neil fixed
