Above: the view across from the Harbour wall at New Quay, Ceredigion.
A great wailing and gnashing of teefs here - I have just had a phone call from my Doctor to say that my sputum tests have come back positive and I have another chest infection. This is what I suspected last week when I went, and was told I sounded OK and to wait until I got the test results before I took the antibiotics. In the meantime, I have had a short course of steroids as my breathing wasn't good and it seemed like pollen might be the culprit, and then seen the Respiratory nurse who given me an add-on inhaler, but also usefully changed my anti-histamines to a long-lasting one which worked first time.
No wonder my breathing was bad in the night and a walk near the sea at Llansteffan yesterday did nothing for my breathing. At least I know now.
The painting continues and I can't stop just because I'm a bit huffing and puffing. Back to the sitting room then . . .
