Hello again, hope you've all had a good Friday & are looking forward to your weekend off. It's my last day at home today....I'll be returning to work at 8am tomorrow....aahhh, how will I cope???
I went to the physio again today, the exercises seem to be working but I still have the numbness in my right hand.... I'm suppose to have a 20 minute break every hour to complete the exercises, stretch & have a sit down... yeah right!!! I'm sure we're going to be busy tomorrow because there's a 20% off voucher in a magazine hence why they needed me back because there isn't enough staff!!! The physio did have a good poke around my neck & she did say it felt very sore & had to agree as I had tears rolling down my face!! Anyway fingers crossed it will get better soon.
I've managed to finish one of my Christmas gifts...yipeee!! This was always going to be the one that took the most time so I'm hoping I can start ticking more things off now..... Do you remember her????
This is what she looked like the last time you all saw her & I was unsure if she was going to be a cat or a girl. Well I decided on a girl & she's called Amy....this is what she looks like now...
All her clothes are removable & she even has a nappy on. The box will be her bed & I decided to make a blanket the same colours as her clothes. She will be going to my friend's little girl, she called Liv, she's 4 now & every year I make her a toy. Her mum won't let her play with them so the shelf in her bedroom is quite full. She also has a box of all the clothes I've knitted her over the years. I was so pleased to find the fairy wings in a teddy bear shop as I've brought Liv some paper wings herself that she can colour in. These will go in her stocking.
I must admit I do like her, she's taken a while to complete because I wasn't in the mood but I'm pleased with the end result. She looks like something my mum would've made me in the 70's, so much nicer then the Bratz toys!!! And I know her mum will agree.
I thought I would share a picture of my cat.....now this is an honour for you all as she doesn't get seen very often....it's because she very old, 19 now, & I hate looking at photo's of her because she looks like an old lady. I normally shut her in another room when people come around so no one will say I have to take her to the vets, she walks funny as her back legs are very bad but she's happy & I'll know when the time is right......As you can see she's sporting a lovely crochet flower!!! I was trying to take a picture of the flower but it was too small & my camera is not good with small things....she kept poking her nose in so I thought she could wear it...she's not very happy!!!
I got the pattern from attic24, Lucy's blog is excellent I look forward to her post about crocheting.
Well that's me done for a few days....... how will I cope not reading your blogs all day??!! I'm hoping tomorrow won't be that bad... I did get a text today from one of the other managers saying he couldn't wait to see me tomorrow & he's brought me a present.........it better be good!!!
