50 of 365


On 19th February I went to the doctor's to see if there was anything that could be done about the eczema. Sadly there's still no miracle cure (I keep hoping...) but the doctor did prescribe me some stronger creams, and in fact they helped relieve the symptoms very quickly :-) The pic is of the touch-screen check-in - I saw Ruth post a similar photo a while back and it seemed to me a good way to record my visit to the doctor!

That night we tried out curried fish (because the recipe jar told us to) and potato splats (via a link on Deb's blog - they're not called potato splats there, but that's what they shall henceforth be known as in this household!)


The curried fish we weren't too sure about - we found the coating a bit dry and a bit too strong - but the splats were fab, I thoroughly recommend them :-)

Our doctor's is obviously a lot less techno than yours...never seen one of these before.

love how doing photo a day means you have to think of creative ways to take a photo of an event.

We tried the potato splats a week or so ago (also following the link from Deb's blog) and thought they were quite tasty. I did put the rock salt on top but might leave that off next time.

glad the czema cream is working better, nothing worsde than having such sore and itchy skin. there's no relief is there?
for children i used to encourage the mum's to wet wrap them but ud probably look a little silly as a ''Mummy'' ala Egypt!!!!!
Those potatoes look ace, not sure about curried fish though, fish in batter for me I think. Loving the Drs screen, they're all the rage aren't they. We have them to sign and get info too.

I love seeing the little old ladies using the touch screen in our doctors, so cute! I'm thrilled with all of your photos, but I always end up feeling shy to take good ones like this in case people think I'm a crazy lady for taking a snap of a touch screen! Good on you for being brave!!

Hope the eczema is improving. Splats would prob go down well in my house but sadly the curried fish would be a no go me thinks!

haha, your as bad as me with food names, at christmas we have "sprout mush", which is my name for creamy brussels sprout bake.

I hate those touch screen at the doctors, evil things lol I can never get ours to work. Whenever I touch it to sign in, it doesn't do anything, but when hubby touches it, the thing works :/ i must have dead fingers :p

Ooh, it must feel like going to the airport! It's good to hear that the cream is having some effect..you can't blog if you are scratching and that wouldn't be good. Seriously, I hope it improves soon :)

Glad your bunch liked the potatoes. My hubby calls them "mashies" so it seems to be a theme of everyone giving them their own household name. I haven't made them since that first time...maybe I'll do them again this weekend!

I am loving doing a photo a day, but like Liberty said I also get too shy in public. It's great that you are getting all these shots, I really must try and be braver......

I'm just trying E45 Itch Relief Cream for my eczema and rosacea problems.. will try to get back to you on whether it's any good - it was recommended to me.
Hope your skin feels much better already.
Curried fish.. needs a sauce really. I had fish curry from the Indian takeaway and it was in a really nice sauce, with vegetables. Might be nice with a Madras sauce, or even a Korma if you prefer mild & creamy...
Potato Splats look interesting. I may have to try these!

Potato splats indeed! They look pretty scrummy :)
