A few weeks ago the sky did this:

 fluffy pink clouds

Reminded me of the skies in North Carolina. I saw some amazing sunsets while I lived there, and was told that they were caused by all the pollution from the furniture factories…no idea if that’s true? Hope it wasn’t, because I don’t want to think the air quality here is going downhill.  

I did quite a bit of playing with the photos I took that evening. The quality of light as we turn away from the sun can be very magical. More images soon.

Coffee and bacon barmA little ray of sunshine on Friday when I took Mum to the hospital. As I’m not allowed to visit, (my weak immune system etc make me too vulnerable,) I wait outside in my car. On Friday though it was a lovely sunny day and Mum suggested I slowly walk to the hospital cafe, get a drink and sit outside in the courtyard in the sunshine. There was a special on – a bacon barm (which is a soft bread roll) and tea or coffee for £2.75. I decided to throw caution to the wind and ignore the fact that my body isn’t terribly fond of wheat, and bought the special.

The icing on the cake though was the fact that one of the cafe staff noticed my walking stick and carried everything outside for me, without me asking for help…so kind. It was lovely out there, a perfect light breeze and just the right amount of shade. It was bliss…

Then I bought the same for Mum when she returned from the ward and she told me how well my aunt is being looked after.
Swabs are being taken every day and a microbiologist studies the results to decide exactly what antibiotic will be administered intravenously that day.

Oh and here’s another little ’gem’- the DNs were using totally the wrong kind of dressings too…the negligence is just mounting up isn’t it?
