2017 Christmas Tree.
Gone are the days when we sallied off to the nearest Forestry Commission Site. Spent a long time selecting and discarding trees. Ate a hot dog. Had said tree netted. Roped it onto the car, always too big.
This year the DP went off to the nearest Aldi, some miles away, and bought the above for £16.99. British grown. He then decorated it. And this year he did an excellent job. He has also begun placing our other Christmas stuff around.
I have to say, much as I try to put on a brave face, it pisses me off I cannot do this anymore. I was particularly breathless today.
The day of the weekly Alendronic Acid pill becomes more and more a day when I cannot breathe very well, am walking alongside the black dog. I googled it. In America research has been done and that pill with people who have COPD and High Blood Pressure has been noted again and again to cause depression. So I will try to get in to see my g.p. this week.
Now, some photos of the DPs jaunt yesterday . The three of them did not see the Capercaillies or the Mountain Hares they wanted to.
These were at Loch Garten. These are wild birds. But they know when a human comes along there is food in the hand! Great Tits and Coal Tits. All of which can be viewed in our garden. But I have never tried to hand feed any of them.
Mindst you I have never seen three grown men get teary eyed at being so close to the feathered things they love. Today they have all been looking for a Goldcrest and didnt see that either!
