HELLO...

.. YES its me x

NOW... pick yourself up off the floor x I hope your Christmas was fun with time spent with family and friends x

I fell down the hole formed by the Time Leak for a while ... but.. hopefully I will find the New Year (2017) to be kinder towards time ... and me  xx

WHAT has been happening you ask .... well.. my mother has been diagnosed as diabetic .. with ALL the fun appointments that that involves x She has had a re-occourence of an old problem involving CT and MRI scans .. a little op and again ALL the appointments that involves .. there is to be another op in the New Year that will also help with the on-going problems x

All the stress has upset my dads health .. and he has needed support and comfort x

JUST to make life extra fun .. they had a leak from their central heating .. through the living room ceiling (they live in a bungalow)... the plumber had just finished the fix and was completing paper work .... when the ceiling fell in..... !!!!!!

.. that has now been all sorted ... 4 days before Christmas .. it was not much fun .. and neither was the washing of walls and cleaning up .. you all know how much I HATE cleaning up! lol xx

HOWEVER .. there were a couple of party's along the way and meals with family ...and mum and dad came to me for Christmas dinner..


..... I managed to make some Christmas angels..


... and Father Christmas tree ornaments..


...I keep on with the knitting ....some for the grandchildren.. and some Christmas presents ..







I hope you are all well and happy and looking forwards to a New Year with lots of opportunities for crafting and having FUN xx

Hi Diane,
I'm so glad to see you posting again, but I am sorry your mom has been dealing with continued health issues. Your mom and dad do look great in the photo.

So nice to see you back here Diane, I hope your Mums health issues are sorted soon and normal life resumes for her and your Dad. Having the ceiling fall in would be a bit scary!! They look good in the photo though. You have done heaps of knitting, it all looks wonderful!!Love the matching cardy and beanie!! Hope you are getting time to look after you too.
