Home again.

I am pleased to report that C is back home again after his op.He was pretty rough Thursday and Friday but much better over the weekend.He cannot lift anything heavy for 2 months so I shall be doing all the gardening and jobs like that.He can drive again in 7 to 10 days.I drove 75 miles on Thursday to the hospital and back 3 times!!It is 12 miles to Wrexham and an absolute nightmare in that the speed limit changes every few miles from 30 to 40 to 50 mph and you really have to concentrate and remember which you are in.Anyway I coped ok with the driving and it didn't affect my knee.

I have cast on my cardigan and have used one 50 g ball already.I have started a pair of socks in a cotton mix.I have only done one square of my blanket and havn't started my Violet green shawl.It looks complicated.I'm letting Allison work it out first!!We will be having a quiet couple of weeks while C recovers so there should be plenty of time for these WIPs.

I spent most of yesterday and most of today gardening and my thighs are so stiff.I can't kneel on my new knees so have to bend down.Painful.

Sarah and Ruby(not infectious from the chicken pox anymore) came to call this afternoon.Big sister Emily was at a party accompanied by Daddy.We are waiting for her to start with the chicken pox.

We change to our new provider on Thursday.No idea how that will work out.We have a "man" coming to help us on Friday.

Hope you are all well and enjoying this glorious weather.

  1. Glad you made the trips in one piece, take care not to overdo things or you may regret it later on!

    I look forward to seeing some of your WIP's! Glad to hear you are enjoying the VG club - I still haven't signed up for anything yet but I quite like the look of the 'Natural Dye Studio' ones. Not that I need any more yarn at the moment!

    Hope 'him in doors' is up and skipping again soon!
