.......and indeed it is. Thank you for the lovely comments. It was so good to hear from some long lost friends :-)
Stitching wise, I have started Just Nan's Boo tin and Needlebook - I've got Hop to do next. I was determined not to buy the 2009 series, but I don't know if I will be able to hold out!!!
As for health, well, that saga continues. I got a phone call from the hospital yesterday afternoon to remind me of my pre admission appointment first thing the next day (as in today). Ummm, for what I asked?? 'Your surgery next Monday' was the reply. Turns out the repair of the other hernia was listed as semi urgent, so instead of later in the year as I had assumed - it's back to hospital Monday. The only good thing I guess is that at least everything will be done, and of course there is the extra stitching time.
A GF and I went to the movies today - we saw Bride Wars, a great chick flick and very very funny. DH and I saw Marley and Me on Tuesday - that was great as well, but I bawled my eyes out!! So, I have certainly been taking advantage of my kid free time.
Speaking of the kids, we pick them up this weekend, I must say, I have missed the little monsters - although not so little anymore!!!!! I will not be sorry to relinquish feeding the menagerie duties though.
