...... TV programme here in the UK about a grocer called Arkwright ... it is called Open All Hours .. and at the end of each episode he is closing the shop and reviewing what has happened. He ALWAYS says .. "its been a funny old day...." WELL I have to say ..."its been a funny old WEEK!!"
Last Saturday (Valentines Day) my dad .. 85 never ill and taking NO medication .. decided to shake us all up and had a stroke!! In one week he has had a CT scan, an MRI scan, a Doppler scan, a Cardio Echogram.... and an Ultra sound !!!! Multiple blood tests and seen just about every member of the Stroke multidisciplinary team!...
I have to say as a romantic gesture for Valentines it leaves a lot to be desired!
He is now home .. with a stick that (somehow) makes him walk in an .. almost .. straight line rather than sideways... some physical weakness and some personality changes that my mum is finding difficult to cope with .... BUT he is with us xx Taking medication for the first time in his life .. and NOT doing as he is told to!!
So the week has been a mixture of rushing around .. sorting out .. and supporting my mother .. interspersed with moments of stillness and ... TO KEEP ME SANE... occasional sewing xx
PHEW!... oh! And occasional visits from the Postman x
The postman brought me 2 more Bee blocks...
and I made 2 more of the little dogs ... one for Sally (daughter)..
and one for James (grandson)...
Quite a pack is forming ...
I have one more requested x
I also made the next 4 mini foundation pieced blocks ... (just looking at the picture I realise the heart is not finished on the upper right corner ... what WAS I thinking !!!)
in case you are wondering THIS..
is a lop eared rabbit!! It will look better with some embellishments!!... I hope xx lol x
I DO hope your Valentines day .. and week have been considerably better x
