Time goes so fast....

This is how I feel at the moment!!!

Christmas is fast approaching...... all though I only buy a few gifts I'm really having problems thinking of ideas this year..... the tree needs to go up..... cards need to be written..... extra hours needed at work.... it's all go isn't it?

To top it off I've been poorly for the last week

I posted a week ago that I was having my final wisdom tooth out. I knew it would be harder this time as I had to see a specialist which is never a good sign!
After 5 injections I could still feel everything so he had to injected my teeth....... it only took an hour to get the blighter out!

It was so painful but I wasn't bruised at all..... tough old bird me!

On Friday I took a turn for the worse, I was freezing cold, felt sore all over & sick. I thought it would pass but I was unable to go to work on Saturday.

I did manage to work Sunday & Monday but felt rotten, a visit to the doctor on Tuesday had me back on the antibiotics. My mouth was really infected hence the sickness.
Thankfully the drugs worked really well & by Wednesday I could tell it was getting better...... now just the side effects from the antibiotics!

So it's been a pretty rubbish week..... I'm trying not to get stress about all the things I still need to do.
I have 1 more fair on Tuesday 4th & then Make, Do and Mend mend in the evening.

But on the plus side I'm on holiday from Sunday 2nd December..... only a few days but it'll help!

I'm really looking forward to spending time with my girls

I can't believe we've had them for 4 weeks tomorrow!

They're getting better but it's very slow...... Katie will allow you to fuss her for a bit but Gina hides all the time. She'll come out about 9pm & will be stroked for about 5 mins. I guess after 8 years of mistreatment it's going to take time to trust me.
All the pictures are very dark at the moment because I can't use the flash...... you can see more on Instagram 

Work update: I'm staying put until I can have a meeting with the top dog..... I've been told I'm too militant to work for the company. I've also been told I can't do any more craft fairs because they can't give me Saturdays off. I'm told when I can have my holiday..... can't have them when I want them! So no wonder I've started fighting back! I can't see myself staying forever but theres no point leave in January..... I just need to find something urgently!

I hope to post again while I'm on holiday

Round 2

Hello all....... how are we?

It's all go here & tomorrow I have a special treat of having my other wisdom tooth out!!

So I really will be a gummy bear!!

I'm all stocked up with soup & now I know what will happen it shouldn't be too bad.... even tho I've been told this side is worse & I have to see the specialist.

I have lots of post to catch up with..... I haven't forgotten the Wartime Farm book review or to let you know how the cats are getting on..... plus I've read even more books!!

I have 2 days off so I might pop back....... in the mean time...... do you remember lovely Mel?
Well she's back!!!

Check out her new blog HERE

Have a good week

Not again!

Yes it's that time again!!

I've had a really hectic week...... busy making for Crikey, Make, Do and Mend on Tuesday, OH rushed to hospital on Wednesday, trying to make a decision to stay in my job on Thursday.

See it's all go here!

Thankfully OH is ok but I'm still at sixes & sevens about my job...... if I leave I have to hand in my notice by the 24th November so I can have Christmas off :)

But for now it's back to making for Sunday..... normal service will resume soon!

Remembrance Day

'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them'

Another year of working for me........ I will again be dashing out at 11am to lay my cross for my grandfather.

I would love to be at the Cenotaph again...... or even just at home watching the service on the telly.

Hey ho........ how are you remembering?

October 2012

Another month gone....... Christmas is getting closer!

October brought fair isle cardigans, a day out at the flea market, treats, books & pussy cats!

All in all it's been a good month...... apart from Rosie (bottom right) scratching my eye ball!

Today I brought home 2 new furry friends...... yes Gina & Katie have come home with me!
After a week of phone calls I've gone & done it. They've been here since 11am & poor Gina hasn't come out the basket..... Katie has been hiding but she has eaten some thing.

I guess we need to give them time...... I've had cuddles & kisses with Katie before she panicked & ran off!

I'll keep you updated with their progress.

Welcome home!

Katie with her tongue out!
I will be changing their names at some point..... any ideas?

I'm thinking Betsy, Ruby, Betty or Kitty for Katie
Not sure about Gina yet.
