Life at the mouse house has been interesting to say the least .... I have been unwell since October with a cold and a cough that doesn't want to go away ... I have been to the Dr's the week before I went to Harrogate and got some antibiotics and that helped a bit but I am still not well now ....hence why things are not done this year so far .... I am going to try and get back in at the Dr's this morning and I will also have to cancel my acupuncture as I can't have that while like this WAHHHHHHHHH......
Work has been hectic too as we are having a lot of changes and work that should have been done before I moved to the new branch hasn't sooo at the moment I am continually playing catch up and my new manager is FAB and is making sure that what we need to do is getting done ... so there has been a few late nights not much longer that the normal finishing time, but it makes all the difference .....
Stitching wise wellllll I have been stitching like a good un and have now managed to finish three ornaments ... not made up or beads added but hey .... a big improvement to last post heheheheh I put the last stitches into All is Calm by Little House Needleworks Christmas ornament series from 2011 on Tuesday night while at stitching with Chris :) I have even managed to do a small bit on my crochet blanket ... no picture of this one as it is stuffed in my work bag for those moments when I can do a bit on it .....
I have to tell you about a wonderful postie day .... a couple of weeks back on a Thursday I think it was and I was having a bad feel sorry for myself day .... I came home to a wonderful surprise :) there was a brown envelope waiting for me from no other than Dixie Sampler who had stitched me a lovely halloweenie sampler and send me a gorgeous piece of her hand dyed fabric and some other gorgeous goodies ... I still have to open the sweets yet ... saving them till I am off and can savor them ...lol .... She truly made my day :)
I have been sent a few "Christmas " parcels that have been popped on the fire mantle until the big day .... I have been awfully good and not peeped ... and I can't wait to see what yummies I have got :)
The other Sunday both DD's and I went to Skipton to the annual Christmas Market .... and it was a wee bit of a wash out to be honest .. it piddled it down for the entire day and although there were some nice stalls most of them were tombola charity ones ... and there is only so many tickets you can buy ... there was some good entertainers that I felt sorry for performing in the rain .... we did have some laughs taking Selfies with our phones ... I am trying to persuade them to let me bob one up ...lol but we were all glad to get on the coach home .... I did score in the charity shops though with some scissor frogs at decent prices ....and I managed to buy a new wee mouse from one of the Christmas stalls .... he is with the scissor frogs and Bentley photo bombing ..lol
I managed to get back into the Dr's this morning and hmmmmm another set of antibiotics .... lots of bloods taken and I have to go for a chest xray and possibly lung function tests ... I said not to bother with them at the moment as I can't breathe hahahahah .... sooo I am poorly sick .com ....
soooo DH has made you the cuppas and I will up load some photos for you to nosy at .....
