when I did my last update little did I know that I would slip a disc in my back again resulting in horrible pins and needles down the right side of my body and me being unable to sit for more than a few mins in a chair .. the best place was for me to lie down ....and all this when got loads of ornies to finish off for work as well and just before Harrogate too ....
I got sent to Physio which has helped and some relaxant pills too ... so now I am on the mend and can almost run again hahahahhahaha sorry shouldn't make you laugh .....
Sooo are you comfy yet and got your cuppa's ??? I managed to get to the Harrogate Show and with plenty of pit stops and my tens machine stuck on me got round and got some nice goodies ... a wee bit different from previous hauls ...I have got the crochet bug and got lots of nice wool to make at least three blankets, I treated myself to a wool bowl as well and did get a few charts but only one piece of sewing fabric and of course some sparklies fabric which I seem to think I haven't taken a photo of, as I have put some away with the charts I bought them for .... whoops...
With not being able to get out and about I have not taken many photos but last Sunday I snuck out for a short bimble to the canal and got some photos of the last baby swan and a little grebe as well as a bull finch and a squibbbblleeee ... I was sooo excited to see it in the tree and then my battery decided to die on me and sooo I carefully without moving too much, put a new one in and got a wonderful shot of the said squibble ..wooooo ... it must be a mixed race one too as it had lots of red on it, either that or it was rusty ..lol, also managed to get a nice one of cooper that day too as they came to find me to check I was ok ..
I have got a new unit for my kitchen which is duck egg blue and I love it .. it has mismatched handles which add to its charm .. it is a wee bit fuller now with things..lol
I forgot that Halloween has happened too and just found the photo of my exchange piece from Mary as well as the one I did for myself , Mary's is Boo from Brittercup designs I hope I have remembered that correctly and the one for myself was by StitchersAnon ....
A wee while back I was gifted from DJ, a wool pincushion to make up that came with its own box and I finally managed to make it up the other night and I am quite proud of how it turned out as it is the first one I have made like this ... DJ has also sent me two lovely ornaments as well as two scissor fobs one of them has a tea set on it ... wonder why she chose that hahahahh....
Well I had better get the photos up for you and get ready to go to bed as I am up early doors tomorrow as going into work for the ER shift as we are short of staff again this weekend ....
