Its raining and its my holibobs

 Good evening all ... well as you can tell from the title I am on my holibobsfrom work looking after Master Cooper as my hubby has gone on a battlefield tour around France so I am trying to stitch and sew furiously to get gifts done / started and finished ready for the forthcoming  Christmas period ... trying to be organised 

I have been looking after my munchkins but not as much as have been due to their mum changing her job so we are voluteering to have them for sleep overs so Granddad can spend some quality time with them both too ..wish us luck 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Stitching wise i seemed to have had a holiday for almost a month as was having issues with my right shoulder due to a rotar cuff injury until I had a steroid injection which has given me a new lease of arm 

I did manage to make a gift for Lainey for her 60th birthday but didnt get our SAL finished in time as that and a few others went on the back burner but hopefully after this week my rotation of sorts can get back into a routine 😁.... I did start a Sampler for September but didnt get really far with that 

I am not sure that I have mentioned I go to Slimming World ( lost over 5 stone in weight!) But we support a charity at our group called 4Louis so I made 5 stockings to sell to hopefully raise enough funds to fund a  special box for a bereaved family ... we shall see .

My MIL was 90 on the 19th of September and we threw her a fabulous family party , we decorated out the venue and this time got caterers in which were wonderful ... everyone had a fab time ...and it is still being talked about 

Other than that not much else to squeak about so I will find the photos while the kettle is boiling ... there are cookies and parkin if anyone wishes some ....
