So, I am clean and ( reasonably) sweet smelling to go to work. And things have got a lot better since. Who even thought about which leg goes first?
How did I do the damage? That is a complete mystery. If you know me, you will know I am fairly flexible, and have always been happy sitting on the floor. So, on that day, I was sitting on the floor, and I did nothing to cause any problems. I did not bend, stretch, twist or reach, but I felt something 'go'. And there I was in agony. I did not drive for 5 days. Poor old husband had to get up and take me to work! Thank goodness I usually use Volk rather than ophthalmoscope.
So I have been doing hand work, rather than machine, and have been getting on with Christmas cards. Making crochet snowflakes. Do you know Attic 24? She has a lovely sense of colour, and makes lovely crochet things.
And the crochet snowflakes will come off the card and be tree decorations. Neat?
Now, you may remember I took part in a box swap? Christmas box and filling of sweeties? Well, the box I eventually sent was
and these goodies went into it,
yes, all of them, and some fabric just to pack it out a bit, you know! stop stuff from moving about too much..
Yes, well we do not want anyone feeling a chocolate shortage...
but in return, I got a mahoosive package!
and a really cute grey and floral box to go with it. I think my partner had taken it as a challenge- see what else I can cram in type challenge! so now, I shall have to enlist some help from my children ( no, my young adults...) to help dispose of these in a seemly fashion! Those red and white candies are minty and not too hard. No teeth to be broken on them- rotted with too much sugar, perhaps, but oh, lovely!
So a mega thank you to GiQuilts, you really cheered me up!
