*Waves goodbye to my deadline*

I have been trying to word this post for days now.

I have done no stitching, none, at all.

 Last week my dad was eventually rushed to hospital. He had been poorly for a couple of days. Dizziness, nausea, palpations, pains in his arms, passing out, and a few other things. After a day my mum convinced him to talk to a doctor who phoned a ambulance and dad was rushed to hospital. Turns out he has had a major heart attack. Because he left it so long before seeking help he has done permante damage to his heart. We don’t know how much yet as we are still waiting for tests to let us know. He has been in hospital almost a week now. If he has the tests done today (unlikely) he will be home tomorrow if not he might be out by the weekend if his lucky.

I haven’t even been able to look at any stitching since he was rushed to hospital and have the feeling im not going to till his home. I just can’t settle. I’ve always seen him as someone who was immortal and invincible. The only time he has had any health problems was when ( a few years ago) he snapped his Achilles tendon while playing badminton, then drove  home, left it a few days then drove to the hospital to get it checked. And ended up spending months in a cast, yes he drove with the cast on too. So this has come as a big shock.

Snowmans got his hat on!

Ello...Sorry about the bad quality of photo it was taken late last night. I love the colours on his hat the photo really doesnt do it any justice.  Theres only 45 days till Xmas and im starting to wonder if im going to get it done in time. I had a dream/nightmare last night that i was up all Xmas eve and couldnt get it finished in time. The worst part is im not going to have any time to stitch over the weekend due to my mum and a friend over tongiht for a games night,and saturday i have a ann summers party,which leaves me 43 days at the most,even if i do manage my full 3 hours a night im really going to be cutting it close.

Wish me luck!!

Hetic half term,lots of pics-grab a cuppa :)


I just thought I would mention that I have taken anonymous posting off as I was getting a lot of spam comments. I'm sorry it has gone on so long I was hoping it would go away on its own but now you have to have a Google account or similar to be able to post a comment. 

The half term is pretty much over, its been our first and its been a long one! I’m truly shattered. We have done lots of fun things including lots of messy play ,visiting people, and lazy days at home. 

We mixed shaving foam and food colouring and painted the bathroom. Most people who have seen the pictures thought I was mental but it was so easy to clean off , just showered over and all done! Connor loved it and I haven’t heard him giggle like that in a long time. 

We had glow stick baths which went down a treat. Something I would love to do but on a much bigger scale, maybe hiring out the local swimming pool would be a bit eccentric though. 

We went trickle treating for Halloween which Connor loved and he was even very brave and went to some houses by himself. We decorated the windows not anything as good as we did last year as we was running out of time. We carved pumpkins but they didn't turn out too great as the knife I use snapped. Connor was a mummy for Halloween all wrapped up in bandages, he looked so cute and it didn’t cost me anything!

We saw friends that we haven’t seen in years, a girl I used to go to school with, the last time she saw Connor he was newborn!
Somehow in all the madness and mayhem I even managed to stitch a little , not as much as I hoped but better then nothing. I restarted the snowman stocking for my daughter using the right fabric. The size difference is immense I don’t know why I didn’t question it before. Most of the scarf is done but I’m seriously going to have to work my arse off to get it finished in time for Xmas. 
I have chosen the fabric I am going to use to back it but think it may look a bit boy-ish as its going to be a lot of blue. But it will look great. 

Well I better get back and do some stitching!!

Have some cute pics!
