It seems a strange title........
but that is where I am!
For several weeks I have struggled to decide whether I should continue blogging.
I have read others' struggles with the decision
to continue...or not!
Everyone has been so supportive and has written such encouraging comments to me
but I have not had the time, or the oomph,
to visit them recently
I have felt that I am not alone
when I read the supportive notes that
you all have written
and I so enjoy reading about others' lives all over the world and seeing areas that I will never visit
I have learnt so much about decorating
and been given so many ideas as to how to arrange
my china and front porch
(well I have the ideas but haven't done it yet!)
I've even started crocheting and been encouraged along by you all, to try other things
but I just haven't visited you recently.......
In fact one of my followers gently pointed out
in her comment to me last week
that I hadn't visited her recently........
and that friends visit each other!!
So I'm thinking that it is not fair to you all who kindly continue visiting me and leaving encouraging comments.......
perhaps I had better stop
Since this last op I am still on so many meds
that life seems to be
a long hard daily chore......
(as I know it is for so many of you, my friends)
and I just don't seem to get around
to all that I intend to...
My daughter did take me up to see my mother
which was so good of her
Mum looked great, as always, and it was good to sit and share stories
She's 92 and in better fettle than I am!
My husband had a slight stroke last week
I took him to the doctors as I thought he had had one and he refused to go anywhere else.
The doctor immediately admitted him to hospital
and he was there for a few days.
I didn't mention it on my last blog as I hadn't told my mother and she would have been upset
to read it first here!
He's home now and certainly a lot better...
I finished Mum's Granny Stripe blanket and she's delighted with it.
It amused me to see the difference
in size and tension
between the first rows and the last ones. This was the first proper crochet work that I started!!
I then made this baby shawl
for my neighbour's new granddaughter
I found the pattern in Ravelry
it was by Candi Jensen
I found this pattern on Ravelry, and
designed by Suzana Davidovic, for a Calm Cowl
I'm crocheting it in Rowan Purelife
British Sheep Breeds Undyed and it's from
a Bluefaced Leicester
I made Mum's cowl in Manos del Uruguay.
It looked really lovely on her
but I forgot to take a photo......!
So....my friends...thank you so much for your help and friendship
I'm not being mawkish
but, if you feel that you could put up with a friend
who visits only occasionally......
and blogs infrequently...
