I am not having a good start to the New Year but hope it will turn out to be nothing to worry about. I cracked a rib and had to attend the out of hours doctor at our local hospital . Seems they are more concerned about my liver and told me to see my g.p. today to arrange an ultrasound scan and blood tests. So as you can gather I am a little bothered.!!
I saw the gp this morning and she took bloods poked and prodded and agrees with other dr so is referring me to hospital . Hey ho more tests. So on painkillers and have to be a little careful on what I do. The rib was caused by leaning over my chair to pick up a thread - there was me thinking stitching was good for my health!
Enough now. I am going to stay positive and as Kate dd said it may be you have injured your liver by your broken rib . Hmm trying to stop me fretting I think.
Well I said last time I had a new coat from DH for Christmas , a few of you thought my old coat (found in the back of a cupboard ,as it was put there cause I couldn't fit into it. So here is a pic of my new coat.
I will have to take a look at the camera as this is a bit blurry too. I thought you may like to see bits and pieces I was lucky enough to receive from stitchy friends .
Julie my stitchy friend , sent me this lovely Portmeiron botanic garden piece.
Here it is in situ on my dresser.
Thankyou Julie so much I love it. Next from Sally I had this coaster ,which made me smile as a Northern born lass I heard this so much as a child . As it features sheep too it could not have been a better choice . Thanks Sally.
She also sent me a little angel that I have attached to my key ring so I see it everytime I go out and come back.
I have more things than keys on this keyring. From my Funky friend Christine over at NH I had this ,oh I will be knitting Heather in the near future.
Thanks Christine. Needlecraft Haven has become a really good friend to me and I treasure the friendships I have made there. From Clare who hosts the Haven I had some delicious smelling goodies and I will put it to good use Clare ,thankyou.
Even has my inital on it ,are you impressed I was. Another friend Angi from NH (no blog)sent me a lavender filled cushion with my name on . Thanks so much ladies.
My fellow Janeite friend and birthday twin Angela sent me a sweet little Jane calendar which has now replaced last years . Thanks Angela.
I hope I have not missed anyone sorry if I have blame the painkillers. Thankyou all so much for thinking of me.
Well I have been doing a little counting and last year I read a total of 32 books . Finished 39 pieces of needlework. I feel quite content with that, I know some people have achieved more and well done to you, I shall see if I can improve this year. I have made plans to have a Christmas /Winter theme this year apart from a few ufos and a the Calendar Girls auto ship. Still have 3 (miscounted last time)sheepies to do and the Jardin Prive Sal to finish. Talking of which here is progress ,almost there.
I have another little start ,not really much to show with the main theme being christmas this year ,this is the man in reds' cloak.
So not a lot of stitching to show you this time. I will have 2 new starts this week, one on Wednesday in the parlour over at NH . Kindness this evening and another new one to share with you next time. Busy busy got to keep busy. I do have 2 more new books to peruse at some point .
If you find Colin Firth before me let me know lol.These came from Ollie dog at Christmas, he has just gone walkies with Martin . Not in fit state to walk far,will see what tomorrow brings. I am also on the wagon this year I am going to try and stay on as I have more stash than my lifetime will allow. I do not make resolutions for the simple fact I do not keep them so I do not hold a lot of hope for this one -only time will tell.
So my friends for all your friendship ,comments and general chit chat last year I thankyou so much, heres to this year being even better. Take care keep dry and warm and fed with a little stitching or a book at your elbow is my wish to you.
Much love Barb.x
