I've just reached the end of the week which saw me being a taxi service transporting OH and dad to 5 different hospital and doctors appointments between them. I had absolutely dreaded taking my dad to hospital because there's the hassle of parking and hardly ever any spaces and then I have the joy of searching for a wheelchair to get him inside. On one occasion I was very lucky as an ambulance man assisted with the wheelchair pushing. We went to another hospital the next day and the lifts were a nightmare, it's like a scrum to get in and out, rather like getting on a London tube.
Anyway the end of this difficult week has arrived and generally things are picking up for the poorly ones however my dad will be going for an operation next week which my sister will come over for and organise. Hopefully that will be the start of getting him mobile again.
We got finished at hospital early one day and that meant I could take advantage of a stroll in the sun around the Sunk Island area and along the bank of the Humber where I used to go gathering samphire as a kid.
Cow parsley and teasels at Sunk Island.
A random gate by a field side at Sunk Island (a lonesome gate to a field of dreams)
My route home took me via a new craft outlet at Hornsea Freeport, it was definitely worth a look as they have some great fabric at low prices and pretty much loads of other stuff for sewing, knitting, crochet, felting etc.
I bought a few nice fat quarters.
Not that I'm finding much time at the moment to do anything creative, doing normal work is a task in itself.
I think in the last 5 weeks, other than my taxi-ing duties & school day we've only been out twice, managed a stroll along the walls in York last weekend.
Then last night we went for tea in Scarborough with the little furry friend to Eat Me Cafe. This is called a tin plate feta and walnut salad, it arrives quite quirky wrapped in paper, chased by a slice of key lime pie :)
I'm not sure which street we parked down but Scarborough does have a lovely mish mash of architectural styles as you wander around. I hadn't noticed this wonderful Gothic looking place before.
Next week I will catch up with some work and then hopefully I might have chance to visit the Driffield Show on Wednesday if everything is ticking along ok.
Have a nice weekend :)
