This & That.....

Posted on


Where has this year gone?  I can't believe Christmas is just next month.  It's been a busy few months for me.  I got a second job as an auxiliary nurse (nurses assistant) with NHS Highland which I've still to get training for and I also have been training as an event first aider with the British Red Cross which I'm looking forward to doing.  I still have a couple of courses to do before I can get deployed to various events. 

My wee Cuilean has had a terrible time of it too.  He got admitted to the vet school in Glasgow for a week at the end of September after slipping a disc in his back and also having a pinched nerve so he had to have surgery to remove the disc.  Poor little soul - I never want to see him in that kind of pain ever again.  He was on methadone for a week and has been on strict bed rest ever since.  He's to get a check up with the neurosurgeon next week.

On a knitting note, I found this chart online and thought it was quite handy.

I've been playing about with my cross stitch material and threads this past few days.

I was out for dinner the other night and got a nice picture of Inverness Castle and a picture looking down over Inverness Cathedral from the castle grounds.  The statue in front of the castle is of Flora McDonald (unfortunately it's not very clear).



I love the thistle - the flower of Scotland.  I took that photo with my iphone.  I was quite pleased how clear it turned out.


With today being Rememberance Day, I couldn't not post a picture.  I was thinking of my Pappa and Grandpa alot today.  Lest we forget.
