So much for………….


updating my blog each Sunday night with the previous weeks happenings! 

I have finally finished the first square of the Afghan jan-10th-09-1 and I am actually rather pleased with the result!  So the 2nd second square, which is the letter A has been started jan-17th-09  I have done a bit more since this picture was taken but not alot!

I have decided that in 2009 each family member will get at least one homemade gift for each birthday, Christmas, fathers day, mothers day or grandparents day!  So I am also working on that at the moment, just a few small items!

So why did I not update last Sunday?  Well simply put, Luke was poorly again.  Much worse than ever before and was ill after his meals and was really struggling to keep anything down.  This week was tough!  He could not go to any groups and so he stayed home with me whilst I monitored him and did my best to get him better!  We are now Saturday and fingers crossed we are over the worse!  He has not been ill since Thursday lunchtime, which is just great!

Other big news, today he crawled, and not backwards either!  Yes my son is forward mobile!  It is so exciting!

Today – Saturday- we took Luke to Snape Maltings for a few hours, just let him get some fresh air, that did not involve shops.  It was lovely to just be out spending time as a family!

Not alot has really been going on, so this won’t be a long post!

Hope all my blog followers are well?

First post of 2009!


We are already 4 days into 2009, and so far so good!  Have not really done too much to say otherwise, to be honest!  I have not been out much, just staying at home and sorting things round the house and getting some cross stitch done, as well as other things!

I finally managed to go through all my old recipe magazines and pull out what I want and throw away what I don’t, which felt great, as I have been meaning to do it for years!  Yes years, some magazines were dated 2005!  Next to get sorted were the Xmas decorations!  They came down today for another year and the cards all put away, so at least the house is back to normal now!

We took Luke to get weighed on Friday and he is now 20lbs 5ozs, so growing well!

I have done a little bit of knitting but nothing worth photographing and posting to be honest!  One of these days I will actually finish Luke’s jumper! 

The afghan is coming on well :-  jan-01-09-11 This was taken on the 1st Jan ’09 and this was taken on the 3rd :- jan-3rd-091 So at least progress is being made, all be it slowly!

Today I got do some stitching on The Watering Hole, not alot, but I am taking this wonderful attitude that some progress is better than no progress!

dec-28th-08-1 This was at the start of today, and here is what I did today jan-4th-09

Thank goodness is the start of the week and life can get back to normality!  So I have a week full of Luke’s activities, and I am actually looking forward to some of them!

Better go, so thanks for reading!
