Thank you for visiting …it was a record number for me, last week …thank you for all your support over my health …comforting to know you care …and thank you for the encouragement over my drawer ‘make over’…its coming along … slow but sure.
The appointment at the hospital went very well although I some times wonder why they bother with appointment times. They did two tests and I then saw the Consultant…and my heart is apparently fine …in fact he was wondering what my doctor thought she saw on her ECG and felt, when she took my pulse …all that worry for nothing really…. could have done without the stress. I do have to loose weight (so hard for me …head has to be in the right place…and its not) and use cholesterol-reducing tablets to reduce the risk of strokes or heart attacks in the future though …yet more tablets…yuk. … so now all I need to do is sort my back out….which might be better with less weight bearing down on it don’t you think lol.
As I said, my project is coming along slowly … but I’m getting there. I have decided simple is best as some of you out there suggested. Here are a couple of sneak peeks of the WIP… my desk is still knee deep in drawers, glue and papers so no change there lol.
Simple strips of paper here …decorated with a MS edge punch …and stuck on using the decoupage method.
My scarf /shawl is growing …another WIP … waiting for some more yarn to arrive so I can finish it …the box is a Bargain Homes buy …from thoughtful DD … for keeping the cats away from my knitting …I even knit with the ball inside …and its light too if you want to move it around.
Not sure I will know when its big enough though …hard to tell without winding it around my neck, which seems impossible while its on needles …maybe I should have used circular ones!! …”JO” …”HELP”....pleeeeease
The GS’s made it over on Saturday…brought me flowers and some of their paintings … and we had a really lovely day…it seemed too soon that they were on their way home.
Olly really doesn’t want to talk …probably because he has two brothers who can talk for him … and hates to stand still or be held for more than a second …except by his mum … but on Saturday he actually said his first word … ‘GO’....and I was there.
Ben and Jake were running races … I said … 1 ..2..3.. Go … blew a whistle and off they sped …we heard Olly repeating GO, so I thought I would test it out. I blew the whistle and he added ‘Go’ …I then counted 1,2,3 and he grinned and said ‘Go’ …so I think he’s got it... and he received several rounds of applause for the effort lol
It is strange which first word they say… Ben’s was Cat and Jake’s was Ball.Here are some of the photos I took …A Nanas privilege to show her GS’s off lol
Last thing …do you ever have the need for a book which you can dip into while drinking a coffee alone in a café …or sitting at a bus station …you know the times I mean …you don’t need to go back to it and read more ... until you want to …well I recommend this one
Each simple everyday story is recounted over 1 or 2 pages …and they make you smile too. Blog friend Arkansas Patti on ‘The New Sixty’ recommended it to me …thank you Patti.In case anyone wonders …the quilt under it is another QVC purchase of the past …I have five different ones and they wash so well....that one has been in use for the past nine years.
If you got this far, thanks for sticking with it … you deserve a medal…and a big THANK YOU for bothering. … sorry this was a very long one.
Take Care xx
