I haven't had much time to pop into blogland recently, I'm definitely missing it! I will try and reward myself with some blog reading time over the weekend and catch up with what everyone is doing, I keep seeing halloweeny things as I scan through bloglovin :)
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post, I had a wonderful day with my wonderful Mum. Sadly her wonderful Mum isn't so well at the moment so we cheered each other up and enjoyed some rare quality time together. My Nana is one of the most incredible women I know, she is 94 and still lives on her own in her house she lived in with Grandpa - she is so determined to keep her independence, and bless her she has. She fell and broke her arm two weeks ago which has sadly resulted in a hospital stay - they really need to operate but can't because of the anaesthetic so are keeping it in a cast and hoping it tries to mend itself. She tells everyone she sees that she wants to go home. She insisted on getting dressed and out of bed, and walking herself to mealtime in the dining room the first week but has not been so well the last days - I hope if I make it to 94 I have her grit and determination!
My amazing friend drove up to see me (she lives quite far away) and cheer me up and brought me these beautiful flowers, every time I see them they make me smile
Thank heavens for friends. I've just arranged a trip to Chatsworth Christmas Fair with another good friend to cheer us both up. My supervisor has given me some not so great news regarding my PhD work, so at the moment it all just feels a bit pants. All I really want to do is put my PJs on, grab a stash of Disney movies and eat popcorn. Sadly that a) won't help my thesis predicament b) won't help relations with my hubbie as he has just subscribed to Sky Sports for a week... could lead to some tensions and c) would lead to a never ending misery of popcorn curnels stuck in my teeth, not a good look.
Thank the heavens also for crochet, I've started planning my Christmas presents, and here is the first project, a granny square hot water bottle - I missed the CAL at Fox's Lane so thought I would have a go now :)
So apologies for a slightly whiney post, I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone else's activities and getting going a bit with some Christmassy stuff - it is the most wonderful time of the year after all, and it is getting ever closer :D
