Hi Thanks for stopping by

Hi Thanks for stopping by

I took my brace off this morning
I was all alone last night Tasha was working and the other half got called out because of the weather. He's an Electrical engineer so in bad weather he usually has to go and get peeps electric back on. Any way I digress. I had to take it off last night in case I fell and and there was no one here to help me.It seems to  be getting better as it didn't hurt as much.

So before I put it back on this morning and took my pain med's  I went and got some wool.  To start a blanket. I have been aching to use my new spotty crochet hook, and I have found a crochet class near by that I am going to go to its every Wednesday evening, hopefully I can go next week!

Enough is Enough

Enough is Enough 

I finally went to the hospital this morning after another sleepless night.
I have chipped the bone in my knee and torn the ligaments. All this from a fall down the stairs.
I have got o wear a leg brace and I am on crutches. I am so debilitated. I hate having to rely on people.
I have to rest it until Tuesday. Then I have to see the surgeon again and the psysio.

Early Birthday Present

Early Birthday Present 

We went shopping today as this is the only day we are both off before we go on holiday.
We both needed a couple of things. I needed to go in the craft supply shop I stopped and looked at the sawing machines my good heavy one got broke at work last year. Long story! I have been using a little John Lewis one but there is no light on it and I find it difficult to see.

Any way the other half said do you want one for your Birthday ?.

Do I!! oh yes Thank you.

While I sit and rest my knee, I thought I would have  ago at some patch work. I have not done it since school and that was many moons ago.
So I sat and cut them all out, sawed the little paper templates in them. The couldn't resist putting a couple together.


 Oh and I made a Lancashire Hot Pot for dinner with the left over beef stew.

This ones  vegetarian  for Tash. I must say it was lovely. And just what we needed on a cold winters night!

 Just For Tammy http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/9099/lancashire-hotpot I always use Beef because I make it with left over Beef stew.

And I am going to try and make a throw with the patches.
