I finished stitching Bonnie's Christmas stocking a good few weeks ago now, and finished it completely the weekend before last.
Joanne is pleased with how it came out, and it's another heirloom treasure for one of my grandchildren.
I got my stitched ornament tree up at the weekend too
I'm afraid that this skinny tree has seen better days, for the last two years I've been saying we should get another. I would like a taller, fatter one, I just have to persuade Mark that we should get one :-)
We have also had a bow put on the front door this year, I'm pleased with how festive this looks
It's that time of year when we could all do with more hours in the day and more days in the week to get things done isn't it? I have got a lots of things ticked off my list, a lot of my present shopping is done and I want to start wrapping this week otherwise that turns into a mammoth chore, I've been buying extra bits of food in with the normal weekly shopping, and anyway I don't do a big food shop like I used to do, it only goes to waste and we are all going out for Christmas lunch, so no veggies or meat to buy this year.
Thank you to everyone who sent get well wishes to Bonnie after my last post. Her cold and eyes had got better and then on Friday she had signs of conjunctivitis again and yet another cold!
The doctor told Joanne to keep her dosed up on calpol to keep her temperature down and some cream again for her eyes, but on Saturday tea time her temperature shot up again and as Joanne was on the phone to me she had another convulsion.
Joanne said Gavin kept really calm and did exactly what they had been told to do by the hospital, while she called the ambulance, they arrived really quickly and said they would take them to hospital just to get her checked out but they were sure it was temperature related again.
Thankfully her temperature came down to normal after a couple of hours of being monitored in A&E and they were sent home.
I never experienced this with any of mine, the doctors will tell you it's quite common and they do grow out of it by the time they are five, even so, it really is so scary when it happens.
Fingers crossed she can avoid catching colds for a while, Joanne is a nervous wreck!
See you soon
