We don't get much of this in this country, but sure had some when we were living in New York at the beginning of the year, so I want to play as well

Even though I have had a lot going on around me, what with a sick husband, a daughter who needed an operation, and difficulty in walking for myself, I have still been working full time. I have a pretty stressful job, I often say if it was not for the clients, the staff and our funders I would have the perfect job.
So I needed something to do that would relax me and keep me out of mischief in my spare time. My mum attends an over 60s day centre and they have been collecting blankets for Croatia, so I have been crochetching blankets. This is something I did many years ago when money was tight and even before the girls were born. I managed to find my crochet hooks, lots of spare wool and off I went. You will see from my pictures just a sample of the ones I have completed. I just hope they do the job that is required and that the people they are destined for can make lots of use of them. I have some here that have been around for 30 years and with the exception of one minor repair are still going strong.
Bob has now returned to work during the last week. He is getting very tired by the end of the day, but the specialist says he is to take it easy and he will get stronger as he goes. They were pleased with the last scan of his heart, although they would like his blood pressure a little lower. We are monitoring that now and seeing the specialist again in six weeks.
My daughter has been in an out of hospital for the last three weeks for womens problems and an operation that developed complications. I am am taking her for a check up in the morning. I am having to take the grandchildren to school as she is not allowed to drive for six weeks, not to mention taking her shopping as she is beginning to panic about Christmas. With five kids to buy for it is hardly surprising.
I go into hospital next week for my knee operation (so long as they do not postpone it again), so after that we are hoping that we will all go into the new year more healthy than we are leaving this one.
Well I did not sleep well last night, so decided to get up bright and early and deal with the grey hair. I had bought a new colour as I have been unable to get the one I usually buy. It looked much the same, so imagine my shock when I turned red, instead of dark blonde.
