here is a strange blue drink. herself took this photo last saturday at mr and mrs kinky's house. it was mr kinky's birthday and they had a cocktail party to celebrate. himself was poorly with his throat so herself and my boy went along for a little while. herself tried one cocktail but decided to play safe and swapped to fizzy wine afterwards. by all accounts it was a posh event; there were things called canapes which are little nibbles and then there were oysters! of course young dave and i were not invited so the nearest we got to the oysters was sniffing the shells that herself brought home to make a dingly thing for the garden.
my boy has been making progress in conquering his fear. on monday we are going to claudia's house again and he is coming with us. hopefully himself will be well enough to come along too. he has been poorly all last week with the throat thing. yesterday, he developed a roaring fever. my boy had to phone herself to come home from work and after taking one look at himself she was on the phone to the hospital. it seems that the symptoms of superkidny being rejected are very similar to those of flu so the hospital told herself to bring himself in to be checked over. mrs next door very kindly gave them a lift which avoids the whole car-getting-wheelclamped scenario.
himself was given a proper once-over by the doctors. photos were taken of the inside of his lungs (my readers will be pleased to know they are still there) and blood tests were taken. his amble belly was prodded and poked and he had to do a weird test which involved walking up and down a corridor and blowing into a machine.
the peeps were relieved to find that superkidny is fine and pumping away as good as ever and that the high fever and elevated white cell count are to do with fighting the infection. himself is feeling much better today and is a lot less hot-headed, which can only be a good thing.
i am hopeful that we can now have a trouble-free easter. i need my beauty sleep at my age...
