Catch up

I posted a pic in my last post of my progress on “Yule fairy” it seems to be taking forever as there is so much confetti. I am doing all the bulk colours first then I will fill in the odd stitches and lesser colours as I feel like I am getting nowhere otherwise. I was hoping to have a page finish by the end of the month but I doubt very much that I will do unless I overdose on caffeine.

Saturday we went down the Warren, which is some woodland very close to us, only a few minutes in the car, in an attempt to tire Connor out. It’s beautiful down there if you ignore the graffiti, which there isn’t much of. There are handmade BMX and bike trails throughout the Warren. Some very small and some that are impossible to climb up. I took my bike down there when I was younger but chickened out of all of the jumps, what can I say I like my bones unbroken!
I hope you enjoy the pics

There was some tree climbing

There are loads of bluebells through out the Warren

Steve found a tree swing....

.....Which didnt end well!

The kittens are doing very well and are starting to climb. Mainly trouser legs and the curtains. There into everything and each have very different personalities.
The baby is cooking well and I have just under 8 weeks till I am induced! I can’t wait, I’ve got to the point I’m constantly uncomfortable and have pulled some muscles in my stomach yet again even though I have been so careful.
Connors operation has worked very well. I’m still trying to get used to not being able to hear him snore at night. During the day he has endless energy and is impossible to tire out. His eating has got better his constantly hungry and eating (most of the time) like a horse. He has even put weight on and gone up a trouser size. He has a little belly for the first time ever!!

whoop whoop progress!!

Just a little bit of progress. Not as much as i had hoped but better than nothing! Connor goes back to nursery tomorrow after just under 2 weeks off because of the operation. This means some well needed rest for me and hopefully lots of stitching!

Connors operation

Hi there’s been no stitching to show. Mainly due to Connors operation and now I have a terrible cold/tonsillitis.

Connors operation went very well. We didn’t tell him what was going to happen as I didn’t want him to be scared or worry about it. He put up a fight like always when it comes to knocking him out. The op took just under an hour, which was the longest hour of my life. He came round very quickly and was very upset and only wanted mummy. I could hear him as I walked into the recovery room. He was covered in blood and just wanted cuddles. We got back to the ward and snuggled up on his bed. He slept on me for about an hour, waking up every now and again to whinge and check I was still there. When he woke up within half an hour he was back to normal and was eating and drinking within 2hours of the operation. He done fantastic. He refused any painkillers when we got him back home and spent most of the next day cuddled up on the sofa refusing and painkillers but he was so well behaved, and has finally started taking them.
I think I might have tonsillitis which would be just my luck as Connor has just had his tonsils and adenoids out. “Keep him free from infection for 2 weeks” yeah like that going to happen.

We now have fish. About 20 of them, and a crab and a shrimp. There so cool and Connor loved watching them while recovering on the sofa under a duvet.

The kittens are doing well and now all have their eyes open and crawling over each other. They are so sweet and have been getting lots of cuddles.

So that all from me I’m afraid. Hopefully there will be some stitching soon, but for the next few days I’m not even going to attempt to pick up a needle.
