Well, I'm still infected with the dreaded lurgy - I've ordered some proberry, more Polyflora O, more ARA Plus and am taking astragalus. Unfortunately, we've had to resort to antibiotics and steroid puffers as apparently I've gotten some bacteria in my lungs. To complicate it, I picked up whooping cough again. Thus, I need to get better by tomorrow otherwise the doctor is resorting to some extreme cough syrup that will knock me out. Whilst it would be nice to get some sleep, I'm really not happy about having to put my body through more. Somehow I think that going to work throughout the course of this hasn't been the best idea.
In good news, my grandfather is coming for a visit and he's extremely excited. We've booked his tickets for him and I think that he's going to have a ball. He loves our boys and can't wait to see them again - I think he'll be looking forward to seeing us as well! The only bad part about it is that my grandmother isn't able to come. She was diagnosed with a heart problem just before we left and unfortunately she can't fly at the moment. We've organised meals etc for her whilst he's away and a nurse is going to check on her everyday. With any luck she'll be well enough to travel at Christmas time as neither of them have ever been to Perth before. Pa's going on a couple of tours during the day while we're at work and he's apparently bringing across a pattern for a cart that he wants Mick to make for the boys.
Cooking-wise, I made Ribbit's Quinoa muffins on the weekend (with blueberries and pepitas). They're fantastic in mini size and I've frozen some of them as well. Mick got quiches for lunches and the puppies now have more home-made pet treats. They loved the amaranth parmesan twists, even though I didn't twist them and they're pretty much amaranth squares. Still, it's healthier than conventional pet food.
