A Busy Week

First off, thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts. It really is heartening to know people care. The latest is that they look like doing surgery the 28th of this month, but apparently it is considered elective surgery so may be cancelled. I have spoken to my GP and we are looking for a second opinion in the meantime. Considering we have private health insurance the whole situation is ludicrous. Anyway, fingers and toes crossed it gets sorted soon. At least the infection has cleared so I need a new name - smelly belly no longer applies lol. Maybe snuffles - as I have been down with a head cold the last couple of days.

It's been a busy time for celebrations this last week. Of course we had Easter, but the kids all had their birthdays as well. DD has now turned the grand old age of 11 and DS is a super cool 14. Eldest DD is now 19 - even though we are not in contact she was in my thoughts all day yesterday.
Yes, they all have birthdays within a 9 day period. Not planned that way I can tell you!!!!

DD & DS are currently on school holidays. It is very quiet though as they are spending them in Canberra visiting their Dad. Craig and I took advantage of this and had a lovely romantic dinner at a local winery which specialises in Tapas. It was so yummmmm, and perfect for me with my gastric band.

Stitching wise has been fairly productive. I have finished a very long standing project - will post more on that when I take a pic of it. I am also just finishing the back stitch on a piece that will become a cushion - pic to follow also.
