Well the saga continues, MiL still in hospital. Physio has declared she needs a cane and home help, she gave them the business. “Sure I am unsteady on my feet, they operate on me, yank stuff out and then I don’t sleep, lots of pain and terrible food! You would be unsteady too!” she sniffed at them. They obviously don’t know who they are dealing with. The old MiL is alive and well, just in tired and in pain but getting a little better. lol
I have been making great progress with my Sprout Cardigan, doing a lot of knitting while visiting at the hospital most of the day. Almost finished sleeve one.
Sorry to say that this being a larger project I don’t have anything of my own to show, however Snapdragon AKA Emily Marett sent me a lovely package. With everything goin on around here (see weds post) I almost cried when I received this lovely parcel. Back in April, Emily put up a post about Paying it forward, so I put in my name and promptly forgot about it, with so much going on well you know. At the time she asked for my favourite colours and I sent this picture as inspiration,
Painting by Monet “Artists Garden at Giverny”
And this is what I received in the mail yesterday, just before heading to the hospital :0)
And a lovely note!
And in the parcel :0)
The happy face cloth is delightfully soft and friendly!
Oh, and I received a gift from my computer geek DH too!
Well hopefully there will be better news on the family front next week, meanwhile I have knit therapy and a terrific parcel to play with, thanks Emily you’re a gem!
By the bye I am still accepting names for Pay-it Forward look here for details and leave a comment!
Our 28th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow!
I could not have married a sweeter guy, you should know deep down inside he is actually Antonio Banderos and I love him!
