Where to start! Well..Firstly Easter...Yep..hectic..Kids got spoilt..Just me or do you almost break the bank getting Easter Eggs as the years go by? Goodness they were costly this year!!
But I suppose I should start the Thursday just before the Easter Weekend started! We get a phone call from Adam's father. Grandma (Adam's Grandmother the girls great grandmother) is in hospital. She had a mini stroke!!!! She stayed there all Easter. She broke out Easter Monday!
Easter was full on, as Easter is with both girls home every day.
THEN, last Thursday (a week ago) Adams mother rings up...Nan (Adams nan...girls Great nan) is in hospital!!!! She had a fall and broker her collarbone and wrist on the right side...SIGH...
Friday we were meant to head down (me as in the girls and me) to HER place for the night so I could get HER present for me for my birthday (which is next Monday, 23rd April)....But since her mother was in hospital she picked us up EARLY Sat morning and we stayed Sat night. Now..most of you know how I feel about HER...And I am getting SO SICK of staying down there by myself with the girls ALONE...Its HIS mother for goodness sakes!! The past THREE times we stayed down there he didnt (WORK is a great excuse)...
Well...Are you wondering what she gave me for my birthday? I am still trying to work out if it was one of the best or the worst pressies. It took 6hrs..Caused a lot of back, shoulder, feet and arm pain (for several days later)....But THIS (below people!!) is what I produced from it...
I have also finished up all the knitting gifties I have made for landlords grandkids (and step grandkid)....Wanna see?
Gift that started it all. Purple cotton teddy bear for 1yo daughter....Then I thought I best cover the rest of em!
So I knitted this for the baby (it will fit him for winter!!)And so the step daughter doesnt feel left out I made her a "Fruit Loop" version of my ever fave gift hat! I hope she likes it..She is in that Tween stage and I doubt has ever had anything hand knitted before!
I never got to learn to spin during the Easter break like I was hoping to. Maybe another time. I have found someone else I am hoping will teach me. Just have to iron out everything with her first.
I have something else to show off to you all...But I forgot to take a piccie of it and its too dark now! So next time I promise! And I wont take as long next time either. Lets hope my life isnt so hectic for awhile! lol
Okies best be off..Dessert is ready (choc self saucing pud with custard)..Catch you all later! And Happy knitting!!!
