Dad is doing his best to fix me

Dad is doing his best to fix me

After visiting my dad last Sunday he sent me home with this lot. He is a very fit 81 year old and knows the importance of eating healthily, this all came out of his garden, orchard, and chicken coop.

Courgette's, Runner beans, Cherry Tomatoes,cucumbers, Worcester Apples, 1/2 a dozen eggs, oh' yes and 1 bottle of home made apple juice from a neighbor.

When I visit my dad I always go for a country walk but as you can see that's not the only reason I go. :)

Sonia, my door is always open to healthunlockeders, no worries about the country walk I've got me treadmill up and running and you could lift a few weights too while your at it. Ha Ha.

Dads doing a great job supplying me with food that tastes so much better than the supermarkets sell and its free and organic. He's determined to fix me with a good diet if he can. :)

It makes you feel better just looking at it and the taste from those tomatoes is something else. :)

Now there's a dad to cherish ! I think he's right and that a good diet helps so much with overall fitness which in turn helps us to cope with these lung illnesses. You can't beat free range eggs :))

Everything from Dads tastes so much better than you can buy, it does make you wonder whats in the stuff we get from the supermarkets.

Yes his eggs are so much better than the pale things you get from the supermarket. Hopefully there good for lung conditions too along side his tomatoes and greens.

This time next year I could be cured, :)

Right that's it. The Dozy family are moving to set up house in your dad's garden. There's enough food there for us to fill up before hibernation. I'm already beginning to get the sleepies. Seeing as you're the hero, you can do my exercise as well!!!!

Love Dozy :) x x x
