Today I finally finished the blocks on my disappearing nine patch. I haven't felt like sewing for a long time. Maybe because knitting and crochet is so portable and I could take it to hospital and doctor visits. But today I had that urge to sew. Now I need to go and get material for boarders and then backing and quilt it. What do you think. I'm happy
Spotlight had a sale. I resisted as long as I could. Ventured forth today and got me some. Each ball is usually around the $6.00 mark. They were reduced to $4.00. But wait the sale said 50% off all yarn. So at the register they were all $2.00! BARGAIN
This should keep me busy for a while. Let the shawl making begin lol

Not well today. Been doing to much and the body has rebelled. So I'm in bed. Listening to an audio book and knitting. Hopefully it's only going to last for the day and I'll be fine tomorrow.
Just when you think your winning the disease reminds you it is the one in charge

This is my new coffee cup. It's huge. So I'm only having one cup a day.
I love it because it's a decent size and because my daughter got it for me
Now I have two ways in which I can believe.
A. I am an amazing mum so she got it for me because of that
B. She thought mum would love that and it would be nice for her to believe it even if it's not true.
I choose A lol
Enjoy your Saturday

Remember I was knitting myself a cardigan from a pattern I got when I saw mrs Browns boys live in Melbourne. But I had to put it aside to work on a blanket for a baby shower. Well I finished the blanket so I jumped back onto my cardie
It's very hot here so I'm working with the fan on me. So I'm just slowly working away.
Another update in a week or so.

Last year there was a sale on. Jeans were only $7.00. I got myself these two. At the time I was a size 14 but I purchased size 12 as I was determined to keep losing weight.
Well they fit now. Only problem was they were too long. I'm only a shorty.
To get them professionally shortened would be between $10 and $15 dollars each. Twice what I paid for them.
So I did it myself. I took my time measured twice and cut once. Ever locked the raw edges and pined and hemmed. They are the perfect length and don't look too bad.
So there you go. You can do anything if set your mind to it.

Here is what I bought yesterday. Before having to leave and find a pharmacy. It's got heaps information and lots of old fashioned recipes.
So what do you think. Nifty isn't it
I'm feeling much better today. I do feel light I've been punched in the mouth but the swelling is gone which is good. And no Cathy I didn't get bitten so before its a mystery. But I'm like that. An enigma lol
See ya xx

Went to an old mining town today.
Hubby said we will come back as we missed about a quarter of the town. But we did go underground and saw a mine.
Hope you liked the pics. Tomorrow I'll show you what I bought there.

I felt like just making something silly just for me. I used to make these when I was in primary school. I made them in all the footy colours and gave them to my friends. I did put googly eyes on them but I don't have any do for now he won't have any
Just a little something to stop me from eating lol
Just a quick one today
I had to buy new clothes
I got size 10 jeans!
Haven't been a size ten in well over ten years.
Now to go through all my things and get rid of my bigger sizes.
Some will go for rags at the shed, some will go to charity
Not big news. But big for me

Hubby was telling me that as part of his continued training as a RWC mechanic he needed to learn how to use a tablet and could I teach him. Hummmm I decided he really need one of his own and I've been eyeing off the new iPad airs.
So we decided to get me a new one and he could have my old one. Pretty clever on my part don't you think lol
Isn't she pretty in her new cover as well

The new year has well and truly settled in.
I have not made any resolutions but this is what is happening
I've started the year 25 kilos lighter Than I was.
I swim three times a week
I now walk twice a week
Still heating healthy
So I now am almost back to who I was before getting sick
I still cannot lush too hard or I crash, and the pain levels go up and down but I can deal
I'm only on one med now. Just my nexium for the hiatus hernia to keep the heart burn under control
And it only take pain Meds to help me sleep.
I will continue my healthy eating and gentle exercise regime hopeing to eventually reduce the pain even further so I can even stop taking the pain Meds at night
I feel like my old self. I'm remembering who I am and what I was like
And that's a good thing.
Also dealing with the almost physical pain of losing my best friend who I miss every day
But again. I'm dealing
It's going to be a year of healing for me
And I'm doing it my way
Baby steps and being gentle with my self
I'll let you know how I go

Yesterday was my 48th birthday. I received visits from my children and a couple of friends. Lots of phones calls messages and Facebook happy birthdays.
It was an extremely hot day so I spent it inside with my air conditioner on.
I was very honoured that people actually ventured out to see me.
I'm feeling very loved and cherished. Very blessed
The day was made a little sadder as I didn't get my happy birthday from my best friend. But I know that where ever she is she was sendin me love.
Thank you to all that made an effort to send me their love and good wishes
