Thank you for all the comments & emails - they've made me feel much better :) I did indeed survive being 'minded' by big son last week. Even better I survived his cooking on Friday night! MrVV was supposed to be home from London in time to cook but it being Friday there were delays, cancellations and breakdowns. The choice were not eat or get big son to do it. The boy did well and he even did the washing up!
The weekend meant more visitors - our kettle worked overtime and I think we'll run out of teabags soon! I've been very spoilt and had lots of lovely pressies & cards;
These massive silk flowers were from the girls I work with in the charity shop.
Roses from my oldest niece
Thank you Sue for this gorgeous brooch (and the lovely un-photographed card) :)
Today we've spent time making sure the boys have everything they need for back to school tomorrow - bags have been packed, new pens/pencils put into cases and uniforms hang on cupboards ready to wear.
I normally miss the boys when they return to school but this year even more so. They have been so great at helping this past week - they are learning new skills which will come in useful in later life and its made them aware of some of the things I do that maybe they don't normally notice.
I've been plodding on with my making when its been quiet. Both blankets are growing steadily. At some point I need a rummage in my sewing room for some different supplies - I just need to remember that when I'm actually upstairs - the journey up & down is still rather tiring.
I don't know about you but I've noticed the change in season the past few days. Saturday was warm & sunny but today has been quite cool & blustery. I expect when I can next get outside I'll notice a real change. Hoping to have sorted a wheelchair hire by the weekend - being indoors all the while is rather boring.
