Hello from a chilly Yorkshire. We finally have snow. Not much, only an inch or 2, but enough to cause havoc and make getting to patients a bit of a challenge. I had a hair raising moment last night coming down some snow covered cobbles but did made it down one piece. The car I drive is 4 wheel drive, but it was the ABS that saved me! I think my heart was racing more than the patient’s when I finally got to her!
Here’s my Sunday Sevens round up for the last week. It involves mainly cakes! But I have run 24 km this week and managed a new PB at the park run yesterday. This is a screen shot not a photo but I’m excited and proud to share it with you! The cakes must have helped!
1. On Monday I sent off a fabric parcel to Kathryn in Iowa as part of Pretty Grievences Jungle January. I bought this on holiday in Truro ages ago and have just been waiting for the right moment. I know you’ll know what I mean! I’ve also posted off 3 other pieces. We’ll each have 3 pieces the same so I’m going to have a matching swap partner from America! Kathryn doesn’t have a blog but I’ll be able to hopefully post pictures for both of us when we’ve made our garments!
2. The first game of golf of 2016 and I polished my golf shoes especially for the occasion. They didn’t stay clean for long, it was so wet and muddy I was surpised the course was open. It was Lady Captains New Year Comp followed by a lunch for all the ladies.
Luckily we have air compressors to clean our shoes and trollies after we’ve played. Here’s Tina and Debs (they don’t know their photos being beamed around the world!)
No photo of the pie I’m afraid. I was staaaaarving so not time for photos, my main course hardly touched the sides. Here’s my pudding. Or should I say my second pudding. Tina was too full to eat hers!
Back to work on Wednesay, working on the ambulance doing a favour for a friend who needed the day off. 12 hour shifts are really no good for your tummy. By 10:30am I’d eaten my spag Bol so a pit stop at Greggs was needed later in the afternoon. I couldn’t decide so had 2 cakes (and a pasty!).
The view over Elland and into Halifax from Ainly Top. When I was new to the job someone once said to me ‘if any of them lot over there take poorly it’s us who’ll have to go’. That’s always stuck with me and it’s a weird feeling!
I won a sewing pattern this week! The Brooklyn Hoodie from SBCC. Betsy kindly posted me a hard copy as I prefer them to PDFs. Can’t wait to make this, but need to get jungle and jean January out of the way first!
H finally been able to play on his new scooter/sledge. Hubby said he was soooo excited last night when it started snowing as he got this for Christmas and it’s been redundant since.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week! If you fancy joining in Natalie’s Sumday Sevens head over to her blog. (Link above). The more the merrier!
