My Five Little Snippets
Wouldn't it be nice if there were no time constraints and we could sit here all day reading and replying to lovely comments, visiting blogs and leaving comments. That's where I found myself last Sunday morning, even though there was lots to do I allocated the Sunday morning slot just to do those things it was doable because of the bank holiday Monday I had a bit longer to do the other not so pleasurable things like housework.
I found it pleasurable because I was able to read every word rather than skimming through with one eye on the clock. It also made me realise that although it was possible then, it's not always and so to keep this blogging adventure enjoyable I have to make some changes. I love to receive your comments and I read each and every one but it's not always possible to reply so from now on I will only reply to questions but will still visit your blog if you have one when you leave me a comment, it may take me a while but I will eventually find my way there.
I was quite amazed to get two appointments through the post last week after waiting over two months for an MRI scan result I was quite taken aback to get an appointment for my Gall Bladder Surgery for next Thursday! and one for an Endoscopy on the 2nd June. If you can remember I was apprehensive about the MRI scan so you can imagine how I'm feeling about this, but I have had so many well wishes from you all and reassurances from those of you who have had the same operation it's made me feel much better about it so thank you, you are all lovely. I will tell you all about it when it's over and done with.
If you can remember a couple of weeks ago I was feeling quite despondent because I had finished two of the crochet alongs I was involved with, well look what came in the post and lifted my spirits.
Can you see that cotton yarn? it was just 80p for 50 grams! such a bargain I'm planning on making lots of kitchen goodies with it, and the stylecraft yarn is for the Lily Pond CAL, I do have some yarn in my stash I can use for it but none of the main shades.
I am way behind as they are onto the third part already and I haven't even finished the first nearly there though. I don't really care if I catch up or not I just want to take it slow and enjoy it.
And if that wasn't enough look what else I ordered....
I have joined Winwick Mums Sockalong! regular readers of my blog will know how I have struggled with the making of socks in the past, this time with the encouragement of all the lovely members of this group I am determined to have a wearable pair of socks before next winter. :)
My progress so far....
I have just received a lovely cute little 30 cm addi circular needle and I'm going to transfer my work onto that, I always get into a twist with dpns.
I have been having problems with my laptop this week it has become infected with malware in the form of adware those pesky adds that keep popping up all over the page and stop you from reading the content. I have all the relevant anti virus packages installed but this malware can still slip through. I have spent the week scanning downloading software to stop it and just when I think I have cracked it, up it pops again. My son has told me I need to reformat my laptop as that's the only way to get rid of it so I'm waiting until he comes home at the beginning of June so that he can help me with it. In the meantime I'm using my small laptop which is very slow and my ipad not ideal but better than nothing. Any expert advise would be greatly appreciated. :)
Have a great weekend.
Joining Amy with her....
