Despite feeling that in some ways antibiotics are a Tool Of Satan and not having taken any for ten years (and then only involuntarily because someone shoved a suppository up my bottom after an operation while I was unconscious) I think they are working pretty well; and I am very pleased.
I am still a bit giddy, particularly when I first sit up in the mornings, but as the day goes on I seem to get a lot better.
Chandira, I think you might be right - if I've been carrying some kind of low-grade ear infection around for a few weeks it won't have been helping with the morning sickness. However, the womiting seems to have stopped and I am even having whole hours at a time when I am enjoying being pregnant rather than hating ever single minute. Which is nice.
Re asparagus seedlings Boy, someone on downsizer.net very kindly send me some seeds a couple of months ago. I thought I'd managed to kill them, but they just took a long while to come up. I've got about three dozen little feathery plants that will be ready to plant out in to an asparagus bed next year and crop two years after that. Very exciting.
This is part of our New Plan. It is only a proto-plan at the moment, whilst we find out about funding, planning and building regulations; but after a little digging around, we think it should be possible to buy a bit of land and build our own house on it out of straw bales. If we can do this it would be a) brilliant fun and b) incredibly eco-friendly.
Of course we will still need to sell this house first; but we are both really keen on the idea. So the weekend course seemed like a good step forward to find out more about it.
Today I am tidying the house so that when we come home on Monday we are ready for all the floods of viewings that I am expecting next week. And I need to find my lump hammer to take on the building course.
