Wednesday 30th: Ruth got to do some painting of her clay creations today. She made a lovely little bowel and a toad stool.
Ruth took this photo of Puss. She sat there looking at something for ages, eventually just resting her head on the toys.
Rachel and I headed out for a bit of a different "outing" today as I had some shopping and some errands to do. It was nice to get some time, just the two of us, to chat. We live in such a beautiful area of the country that it was nice to just stop on the side of the road for a selfie. It was a little windy - but that added to the memory making fun aspect of it all. :-)
Below: It was rather strange buying so much (especially chocolate as we almost never buy it). And this was mainly for Brendon, Rachel, Ruth and Hezekiah. We had done a bit of a Amine Challenge a couple of weeks ago and Asher, Hannah and myself "failed". So we didn't bother trying again for us. (I got terrible headaches so didn't get even close to a week on the challenge.) We did however want to see if we could find a trigger for Hezekiah's eczema and Brendon's migraines. Realizing that the previous challenge was not long enough, or high enough in Amines to have a clear result for them.
NOTE: Hezekiah "passed" the challenge and so we haven't seen any eczema on him for over 2 months (since starting the FAILSAFE diet). Brendon however "failed" and had a migraine after the challenge. Often Amine reactions can be a bit delayed, so the ideas is that you do the challenge for 7 days and then go back to full elimination. It was after a week of being back on elimination that the migraine came. We know it's related though because Brendon normally has a migraine every 5 to 6 weeks. This time it had only been 2 1/2 weeks since his last one.
BELOW: 2 October - and I remembered today to get the new children's photo. I enjoyed creating the video with the 4 years of photos.
