Oh my! I am totally useless! 
I guess I just get engrossed with things I am doing and just forget about being this blog! 

I am here now so best I let you all know what I have been up to! 

I have been going swimming and dear Han took a hmmm lovely photo of me! Ha ha it's terrible! I look really hot and bothered! Just been for a swim and in the steam room, showered and dressed and sat waiting to get hair dried at the driers! Nice!! Ha ha

Our house is going to be a little quieter for the next 3 weeks.  Han is off on a course run by the hospital (Stanmore) to help her manage her life long condition.  Her recent diagnosis of fibromyalgia and other things I forget the names of.  Apparently had these conditions a long long time but just now been given the diagnosis..and with that help comes! So on the course she will get help from all kinds of specialists and it will hopefully give her skills and lots of good advice on how to live and cope with her illness.  Han will be blogging daily from her hotel, so if you want to pop in on her, her link is in my side bar.  She goes Monday. Good luck Han and looking forward to you coming back more informed than when you left! 

I have been stitching and stitching.... It's almost finished!! That means I will soon be able to share it all with you! I have also added a few more lines on my knitting.... The wool is really heavy, any one else have this problem? It hurts my wrists if I hold it too long. 

I love the colour of the wool...

My favourite go to food right now is toast and beans! The bread is rather special, has no dairy and soya! Mmmmmmm

I got to surf around Amazon.... Ha ha I don't do this often! And I came across a rather interesting book....

It just screamed, buy me! Of course it did! Ha ha so yes, I bought it! I am still waiting for it to be delivered, but I am quite excited about this.  Oh I plan on giving it a go! I like a good challenge! Ha ha it may take me a little while to gather all the supplies though!! 

Got to go! 
My needle is calling me....

Happy smiles to you all :)
