Blogtober Day 12

I had just a few things on the agenda for today, the first being a visit to the pop-up blood donor centre. My family carries a genetic disorder called hemochromatosis which causes a build-up of iron in the blood. I don't have hemochromatosis, but I do carry two of the genes that cause it so to keep my iron levels low and avoid any problems associated with iron overload I have to give blood on a fairly regular basis. 

Waiting for the bus.

Not something you expect to see when donating blood, but he was a very cute distraction.

Once back at home I had lunch and then I got busy potting on those tomato seedlings that needed a bigger pot. I forgot to put name tags in the pots as I transplanted them so I have no idea which tomato is which now. I guess I will have to wait until they start fruiting to find out. I also planted out the beans that I was meant to do the other day but never got around to. 



  1. I think my MIL has a similar thing as she has to donate due to something like that as well.

    1. It's a lot more common then you would think and a lot of people have without knowing it.
