CRIKEY!!! It’s the best I can come up with, without offending someone lol..

So last time I spoke I had the worst throat infection ever, I couldn't even speak.  As you can imagine everyone was so happy about that, never mind my pain they were just joyous for the peace…  I did feel a little sorry for myself though when they were skipping and dancing about **SIGHHHHHH!

Good news is I finished the jackets, yes still almost finished the fringing on my shawl..  For goodness sake I didn’t realise how boring fringing is, so I am doing a little bit at a time..

In between fever, sweating and the chills I started this project..  Come on have a guess at what I am doing..

Elastic Bands +


Nappies or Diapers if you are American or Poop Catchers if you don’t know either word LOL!!


= 192 rolled nappies later


Any guesses yet?  Yep I am making 3 nappy cakes..  I’ve never done one so I researched on you tube how to and it’s so easy and really effective and it can be as expensive or as cheap as you like..

I also started some sheep today before I went to work..  Yes I said back to work..  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – BLOODY – HOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Yah last week my lovely physiotherapist signed me off and I skipped went to the Doc’s and hoped for the same.  He was happy to let me back to work but he just wants me to ease back into it..  I am happy with that.  My first day back and my ankle felt it.  My hip. leg and ankle are feeling it now but that’s to be expected. 

Sonny and I are joining the gym.  We want to be fitter than we are, me for lots of reasons, mainly the fact that if anything goes wrong I am gonna be stuffed..  Last week I started back at Aqua Aerobics and my leg loved the weightless feeling, but didn't like the work.. LOL!!  It really felt odd..  I finally got over my fear of getting out of the pool and went along only to discover they have a completely different stair system..  YIPEEEEEEE!!!

Well I do have one more piece of news for you guys buy I will save it..  You will lurrrrve it…

Long Time No See…


(Above me looking out the window all forlorn.. *sniff*)

Well what can I say?  The was nothing to report other than the fact I was sitting in my chair festering about the fact I was missing the summer and the fact there were so many things I wanted to do, but couldn’t.  But I soon fell into that dreaded place called depression.  And it was hard for me to paint on the brave face every day and tell everyone I was ok..  Hopefully now I am out the other side..  The boot is off hooray!!! I’m hobbling around and driving..  Next step is back to work when the physiotherapy department discharge me..

I am back to getting crafty (something I neglected to do).  My mood is lifting slowly the more I get around.  It really does make you think about how on earth others cope.  Luckily there is a light at the end of my tunnel but others are not so fortunate and now I am more aware that when someone is a little bit grumpy with me there maybe another reason why that maybe not the fact they are just rude and mean.

So me being crafty I have crocheted up some little things..  Actually it was great. I bought some lovely chunky wool and made three little jackets from that, this is the smallest one.


Yes I know my photography is something to be desired and I probably should have used a small hanger lol..  But still this was so easy and fun to do..

A little close up of the curlews


I got this pattern from Annie’s Attic Scrap Crotchet.  A really lovely little book I swiped from amazon for a few pounds.. I didn’t have the wool in my stash because I did make three, but for under £20 this wasn’t a bad price either.  There is a little hat to make but I have run out of wool.  I am working on a shawl too it’s kind of my own pattern and has gone awfully wonky so I need to undo and do the wonky bit again lol..  Oh well..  That’s me so far..  And just to make you sick, I only need to get one Christmas prezzie LOL!!!!
