This flower was picked for me by Little Man, he got it from our front yard, he was so loving and gentle when he gave it to me and it really made my heart squeeze.
He picked me this one too, it was so tiny, I put it on top of my sewing machine so I could look at it while I was sewing away.
I’m not sure where this last week has gone. The days were all blurred into getting the boys back to school (pre-school for Little C), being poorly and recovering, birthday celebrations and renovations.
Little Man went back to school last Tuesday (6th), we had no wobbles or sad faces, we walked down to the school (which is literally at the bottom of our lane, very handy!) and he kissed Little C and I goodbye and walked straight in.
Little C on the other hand had a complete melt down, he wanted to go to school and was letting everyone know about it. In the end I calmed him down by saying we’d go and see Grannie, tantrum ended and pestering began, ‘when are we going to grannie’s?’ (or ‘rannie’s’ as he says it) over and over until we left the house.
Later Tuesday after fetching Little Man I felt really ill, I think it was a migraine, I’ve never had one before but my head had been aching a bit all afternoon, I’d taken some tablets and it then got worse. I felt sick and any noise, light or movement was making it so much worse. Not great when you’ve got 2 noisy children running around asking for food, drink, tv etc. Anyway ?i ended up calling my mum and mumbling something about coming too look after the boys and she was here about 15 minutes later. I’m so lucky to have that support so close by, in situations like this I don’t know how other people cope who haven’t got family close to help out. I slept the rest of the night.
Thursday my head was better but I still didn’t feel 100%. I was excited though, D and I were off to the cinema in the evening to see a film for my birthday. We saw Jason Bourne, it was ok, I’m normally just pleased for the change of scenery and a night out of the house, so I don’t need much from the film. I liked the Bourne series but I think they may be taking it a bit far now. They should have stopped at the 3, this one was a bit far fetched and I’m guessing they’ll be more to come.
Friday was my birthday, but I’ll go into that a bit more on another post and show you my new toy.
I’ll tell you about the last few days activities in picture form, all I’ll say is it involved a hook and a sewing machine.
Made some roses for birthday cards…
Chocolate cheesecake – my birthday cake….
D put the shower splash guard and rail up so the new shower can now be used…
Not 100% happy, the band around the top needs to be wider and not as bulky, will probably be re doing it at some point…
I will show you some more of the patchwork tomorrow, hopefully, as I’ve done a border now and might be able to get another one done too. Not sure what it’ll be for yet, but I love the colours in the fabric and the patterns. Unfortunately not got enough of the fabric to make a quilt though.
Right off now, thanks for stopping by. I promise to stop sewing for long enough tomorrow to show you some more of the patchwork.
Take care, have fun E x
