Oh my! Where did October go? Mind you, if I spend a little time looking back through, it was a good month. John and I spent a lot of time pottering around, slower than normal, starting to put the garden to bed for the winter, always quite a long chore anyway. We have some huge… Continue reading On to November!
In a fuel shortage we have probably clocked up more miles these past few weeks than ever! There has been a long list of hospital appointments for both of us. My physio is coming along great and I'm actually feeling the improvements. John has been doing well until the breathlessness started to become a problem.… Continue reading October the Beginning
As you can imagine we've been taking it slowly as John finds his feet again. He is finding that his 'battery' runs low quite quickly and it takes a while to recharge. He is also taking a trial drug which is giving him the occasional headache and shortness of breath. It's doing all the other… Continue reading Rest and Recuperation
Not even a week really though it feels like it's all gone in slow motion. Remember my little Scarecrow for our Village Gathering last time?

Creative ones I mean, not the cooking type. I have several and have noticed once I put one… Continue reading Half Past August
I’ve decided to join in with the Faby Riley Stitch-A-Long Jacquie which started at the end of last month. I know I have many other projects on the go but this one intrigued me and I’ve wanted to do a Faby for a while. Variety is the spice and all that! From the get go… Continue reading July the Beginning
The rickrack, on second ordering, finally arrived! I had been up into my huge Cword bag and found the fabric that wanted to be with the reindeer. I have plenty of Scandi types but the one that elbowed it's way to the front was this red and white stripe! For some reason it works for… Continue reading And on into May
