Good Morning Ladies.
I have decided today is going to be another mad day of running around like an headless chicken. I Have been extremely busy this week trying to get my house in order so that all I will have to do when I leave the hospital is surface clean, until my legs are fully healed.
I have been busy at my step-dad's doing some d.i.y.
and at my mothers. I have been helping her sort the hoardes of things she has collected over the years. We are categorising items to sell in the car boot Sale.
I was extremely busy today. I had to go up and down the ladder many times,lifting down some heavy suitcases that were already full of things to sell in the car boot sale. After a while I had t0 stop as my legs were hurting and my ankle started to swell.
I decided to go home and rest while crafting. But my youngest son came to visit and asked me to make a card for his Nonna's 60th birthday. (Nonna is used in Italy to mean nanna )I had just finished putting my stash away. i felt like I was in a game of snakes and ladder and I had slid back to the first square . And need to start all over as my crafting materials are everywhere.
And because the sun poked his head out from behind the clouds, I also managed to cut my grass, and do a spot of weeding before the heavens opened
I am pleased with myself as I have had a productive week.. I had my pint of iron yesterday and I also did my good turn for the day by becoming a guinee pig for the student nurse who needed practice in taking blood and she also needed practice in adding a drip. All went well.
After all the physical achievements I have performed this week, I was looking forward to getting the operation over and done with.
But luck is not on my side because I got a phone call from the hospital informing me that my operation has been cancelled. My bed is needed for a more urgent case.I hope he or she has a successful operation. And I will go back on the waiting list to have the operation another day. So lets get back to Crafting!!! The only thing a girl can do once the chores are done. I am sure you will agree!
