A Corner Turned

Things have finally started to look up here, yesterday we popped down to the allotment to drop some bits off into our new shed which arrived a couple of weeks ago.

We had no intentions of doing any work, just picking some apples to freeze, and set things up in the shed. Sadly we've been neglecting the allotment  the past couple of weeks, what with Himself being so unwell and I've been very busy working at home on some commissions and stock for Stone Pit Crafts

Himself said he felt up to doing some weeding, I was obviously worried in case he overdid things, so I took charge of the fork so he couldn't, and whilst he did some light weeding I set about digging up the veggies that had gone to seed as we'd not been about to harvest them.

Whilst we were busy digging and weeding Badger Boo decided to eat as many of the windfall apples as he could. I can't remember if if I've ever mentioned it before, but Badger Boo is a huge lover of all things vegetable.  

This year he stole and ate all of the cucumbers off the plants at home, was secretly stealing and eating the potato's from the potato sacks and even made a start on the strawberries until I finally figured out what was going on and built some Badger Boo proof defences.

So what was meant to be 20 mins on the lottie turned out to be a couple of hours enjoying the outdoors again. Until the car journey home when Badger Boo let rip with the stinkiest botty burp ever, I can honestly say it made me feel most unwell.

I think at last Himself is finally turning a corner and starting to feel a little better, until his next operation that is. We're seeing the Specialist this afternoon, so we'll have a better idea what's going to happen soon. 

In other news the Monday night Knitting Group has gained quite a few new members over the last couple of months, we may have to move out of the snug area and into the main part of the pub soon as it is getting a bit of a squeeze in there now. The Wednesday Lunchtime group is still fairly quiet with only a couple of members, I'm wondering if the Weds group needs a change of location? 

We have a facebook group open to all, so if your a knitting and crafty type of person your more than welcome to join us, show off your projects, ask advice and connect with other like minded people.

Hope you're all well?
Take care.

Up, Down, Round and Round

Feel like I've been chasing myself around in circles for weeks now and achieving not a lot, although I have achieved such a lot just lately.

Himself had  his operation and it wasn't a success, so he will need yet another op, but first we must see the Specialist to discuss the options. 
He's still in so much pain it's sickening, nothing helps, he's now considering going private just to get it sorted.

The whole situation is just so stressful, my O.C.D. is coming back which is causing problems mentally, but I'm trying to keep it under control. It's really hard to explain the totally feeling of dread that has blanketed me at the moment, but it is like all emotion has been sucked out of me and I'm just an empty shell.

Had my first Craft Fair which was a step learning curve but I covered my pitch costs so I'm pleased about that. I'm really busy making Christmas stock at the moment so I can post on Stone Pit Crafts website.

Found this beautiful Sunflower which has decided to grow among my Tomato's at home, quite pleased with the picture quality as I used my mobile.

Home you're all well and take care.

Ooooo Look...

Eleven years I've lived in Godalming and walked down this little alley way many times, but yesterday was the first time I noticed this plaque high up on the wall.

Godalming is a beautiful town and full of history, you just have to open your eyes and look up to see beautiful buildings.
Although my observation skills were obviously ZERO when it came to seeing this plaque.

Broken Promises

Where do I start? 

Every day I log on with the intention of writing a blog post and nothing gets written, so much for the promise I made to you all.
 **hangs head in shame**
Things are so good and things are so bad here at the moment.

Himself is in so much pain all the time, it's heartbreaking to see him suffering so, but at last he finally has a date for his operation, fingers crossed all goes well for him this time.

I'm due to see the Specialist next month,  I've been in so much pain with my Arthritis the last couple of weeks.
 I had the X-Rays of my knees done this week in preparation, they're looking really bad now, bone on bone in both knees and no sign of any cartilage that I could see, which explains the agony I'm in. 

Got discharged from the Physio-Terrorist yesterday, I'm really going to miss my weekly
