Monday 3.15 pm

Hope everyone is ok , I discovered the fabric I had earmarked for my final appliqué, doesn’t show up on The panel and as it’s the star I have had to send for Another piece of fabric . So delay ladies in taking pic 😏

Nothing much else to tell , been ordering bits on amazon for stocking fillers also chocolates etc . Don’t think we will be allowed family round though.

Had an email from Linda she is improving but feels it could Be another few weeks before She feels able to craft or come on forum . She has a hospital appointment early December.

Had Brianna at the window this afternoon, she said present for nannie and granda and gave me 2 crunchie s for our afternoon cuppa . She is such a joy in these awful times .

No idea what we will have for meal this evening, jim still won’t allow me in kitchen , he will make something simple

Stay safe

Hi Ladies
how are you all? All is well here.
Liz isn't Brianna lovely, I can see why she cheered you up. What did you end up having for dinner? I hope your ankle is improving.
Lisa Dante is a sweetie, he's grown so fast hasn't he? What have you been making lately? I loved your hedgehog.
Glad to hear Linda is ok it will be nice to see her back.
Tracey how are you? I'm glad you are ok as far as Covid goes.
I have not slept so well this past week I just keep waking at 3am ish and my body just feels achy and i can't sleep, it's frustating. I see my Doctor soon for a check up so will have a chat, i don't want sleeping tablets but she is a GP but into natural therapies too so we'll see. I've got an adjoining appointment for Greg to get a check up, blood tests, mostly kicking and screaming 😁 but sometimes men think they don't need to and he's feeling fine but I think sometimes men don't think they need to go if nothing is wrong.
I go to get my implant tooth started on Thursday, I had that tooth infetion earlier this year and had to have the tooth out, it's all healed and settled so I'm getting an implant in, it will be good not to have that gap there.
As far as craft goes, I'm making my own little selection box for Greg there is a great YouTube tutorial so I"m having a go. A lot of my overseas people have been recieving their xmas cards and telling me they love them, that makes my day.
It's hot days here and cool breezy nights, I enjoy this time of year.
Have a lovely day all xx

I have had a Tesco delivery today and it’s all wiped and put away , I am still waiting on my fabric coming for my star to complete the panel

Lyndsey post a pic of your selection box when you can , I hope visit to dentist is painless .

Lisa I can’t believe the height of Dante he is much taller than Brianna and has lost all his baby looks now , cheeky face now full of mischief. What age is he ? Your Star Wars themed gift sounds interesting, your full of good ideas .

Ankle swelling down but it’s still very tender and I am not sure what will happen once antibiotics finish on Friday morning, there is still a redness in it too but Think infection has gone it’s some other problem .

Ruth’s new washing machine comes today and last night her hubby removed the old machine disconnected hoses but didn’t think to turn the water supply off first . Ruth says they were ankle deep in water before they discovered the water valve in a cupboard . Cold water off meanwhile till machine arrives , I told her not to have the hot water heater on till water supply is re connected, : her reply was Its too late it’s been on for 3 hours this morning
I would have expected her hubby to know things like this 😲

I am going now to watch the Scottish covid update on telly as our first minister broadcasts every day and today she is expected to be putting more restrictions on us . Hope you are all well , what is work like this week Tracey ?

Hi Ladies
Liz hope once the antibiotics are finished your ankle will really start to feel better. Gentle hugs.
Lisa I'd love to hear what you think of the resin crafting, It seems to be all the rage right now. I made my selection box for Greg it's fab, I just need to go to the supermarket on Friday and get the goodies to fill it with then I'll pop on a pic. I've just got to finish some local Christmas cards and post those soon. I'm making our own Christmas crackers too for hte table I've got the snaps, I just need to find some hats to put in them and print off a joke.
Today I decided to clean out the fridge and freezer, clean all the shelves and it looks good, it's not a job I enjoy but it's good to be done. Greg finished putting the mosaic tiles on top of our pizza oven outside it looks wonderful. I took the opportunity to sit outside and do some crochet, I'm making a Christmas dishcloth it's got bobble stitch in it and it forms a Christmas tree it's really cute. Zoe sat with me on her bed and we were all in the garden together enjoying the sunshine and breeze. I love our garden it feels liek our own little paradise away from the cares of the world.

Your garden looks lovely Lyndsey and beautiful pizza oven , that is a huge amount of mosaic tiles .

Ankle still sore but infection seems to be gone , I am still keeping it elevated , as it’s less painful when I have it up.

Hi ladies
Lisa your glass engraving sounds great, you really do enjoy and try a lot of crafts which is great. Thanks for the garden and pizza comments Lisa and Liz, we do love it and we enjoy living in a tropical climate I could not cope with cold anymore.
Liz glad to hear the infection is gone and hopefully the pain will follow.
I have been shopping for Christmas with hubby today and to the Specialist Dentist to have my implant tooth started. It's a bit painful but not bad, he gave me a antibiotics to take to prevent any infection so popped into the chemist to get those. I shall be taking it easy tonight and just eating soup not sure if I feel like crafting or just reading my magazine or doing some puzzles.
Not much else to report it's grocery shopping tomorrow and then looking foward to more shopping Satruday and Sunday a pizza in our pizza oven.
It's promisng news though on the vaccine front isn't it? it's good to have some hope.
Have a nice weekend xx
