Pour Forth we beseech Thee...

Is that some hardening / crusting? I do hope not...

Better get some Bepanthen on it! Nappy Cream IS the best, according to the mummies at the school gate (where my tat is probably famous by now)!

Going [day] Forth...

It's a-looking nice and healthy. This interesting irreversible experiment has not really yielded any ill-effects. Savlon no longer stings. It is comfortable to pass a hand over..

(the Coke is mine.)

On the 3rd Day Doyle Roused Again

I am currently on a regimen of:
- Paracetamol 1g qds
- Ibuprofen 400mg tds
- Ceterizine 10mg mané
- Warmy soapy wash of tattoo tds
- Application of Savlon Cream 3-hourly.

Has just started to really burn now, on the last step.

Still, it's only slightly red medially, and I have high hopes in God that it'll be complication-free.

It feels rather like a massive carpet-burn.

P.S. Latin abbreviation used in Medical Prescribing:

-"tds" (ter die sumendum): three times-per-day
-"mané": in the morning
-"od" (os die): once daily

There are a whole host of others!


It BURNS us, Precious! Nasty Elven Rope!

Our New Car

You may not have noticed, but since I last wrote, I changed my Vauxhall Zafira for a Chevrolet Orlando; a more spacious 7-seater.

But look at why I had to change cars (I was happy to run the Zafira into the ground!):

But we're all happy as can be, with our new black baby sitting on some nice alloys. And we can, of course, say; "Drove ma Chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry!"

Third Day Update

It's still looking good. No scabbing. No infection. I've missed the opportunity to get it blest at the West Heath Mass, but there will always be Friday, or Sunday.

Showed it to lots of people at work, and it's generally very much appreciated. The size is the boldest thing about it.

Welcome back!

If you've found yourselves here, you may not be aware that this blig has gone through an extensive gap and lull. This was deliberate, and now it's deliberate to slip back online.

Day 2 Update

Here it is folks (all three of you!)

My tattoo on day two, after a few cleans. Looking good, although the base is beginning to get red. Need some more Ibuprofen!

My view...

... for the rest of my life!

Lord, you are at my rising and my sitting; and from the rising of the sun, till it's setting, you are on my lips, O my God.

He Conquers By Fortitude
