It doesn’t seem that a month can go by without Felicity’s schedule getting busier and busier. She is absolutely delighted with how the new clinic is going and hopes that all of the their lovely patients are too. The facilities it offers are proving to be priceless and have allowed Felicity to hold a seminar at the clinic. The topic of the day was Osteoarthritis of the Knee and was hugely informative, focusing on various treatments that don’t involve going to hospital. The Infant Drop-in Clinic and Lower Back Repair Classes have also begun thanks to the new clinic and have been a great success so far. So, although Felicity hasn’t officially started seeing clients again, these sessions are easing her back into clinic life and she is enjoying catching up with some clients and getting to meet more beautiful babies.
However, spending time with her own wonderful little ones is high on the agenda as always. The big news of the month is that Penny has started laughing! She is already famous in the mummy social circle for her contended nature and winning smile. Archie continues to be a sweet big brother but is also enjoying his ‘days off duty’ at nursery. He had an exciting weekend away with his Dad this month visiting family and friends in St Andrews and enjoying a trip to the beach.
Felicity and Penny enjoyed a whirlwind day trip to London for the exciting task of looking for bridesmaid dresses for a friend’s wedding later this year. They had a great day with friends and tried on lots of pretty dresses. Felicity is now looking forward to all that April has in store!
So much for hoping March would be a quieter month! Laura has been nonstop in the new and improved clinic, but now it’s all up and running and we’ve settled into the new routine, she’s been concentrating on getting all the horses she sees on top form for the approaching competition season! It’s been hard work but she’s enjoyed every second and loves to see how little changes can make such a huge difference to the way a horse moves, and how those changes help the relationship between horse and rider.
In her very fleeting spare time, she’s been managing to steal away an afternoon here and there with her mum and the dogs for long walks, this month being Loch Muick’s turn! And as always, she manages to go up to the yard to see her own horse occasionally to remind him who she is! She can’t wait for April and the longer nights, so she can spend more time with him – for her own sanity more than anything else!
March has been a great month for Anders. With the warmer, brighter weather he is starting to notice a few more colours around the countryside. He has been busy in the new premises and is enjoying the positive feedback from patients on the both the look of the clinic and how patient-focused the new facility can be. He is excited for the great things coming up such as the new infant drop in clinic which he feels lucky to be shadowing Felicity at. Anders also enjoy seeing his lovely colleagues more thanks to the layout of the new clinic as it opens up for more communication between them all. Exercise has been a priority for both Anders and his patients as it has become evident to him that people want to get a little check before (or after) starting up their summer sports to make sure that they can stay as injury free as possible. He is excited for the lower back repair classes to begin as it gives him the opportunity to get back to doing what he knows very well, helping people re-train their own backs.
Anders has again done quite a few miles for his charity. The kilometers stacked up quite fast after he got his roller skis sent over, but unfortunately he broke one skiing pole on the 9th km after getting them! When he has had it fixed you might spot him skiing around Knockburn Loch on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
Anders had a visit from his Mum and Aunt who came to Aberdeen for a long weekend to explore the area. Anders couldn’t resist taking them for a litte trip up his favorite hill, Scolty. They had a lovely time and his aunt, who had not visited before, fell in love with Royal Deeside and hopes to visit again.
The last weekend of Anders’ month has been spent in Lerwick as they are also moving clinic and need some extra help. Anders feels that it’s good to see other clinics also progressing but by April he’ll have had enough clinic moves to last him a while!
