I really need to get back into the swing of blogging again.
I seemed to find myself lost for words (YES! finally!)
Where to start....
A couple of weeks ago my son Ben who is 18 (soon to be 19) trotted down for his
sty bedroom and informed me he was feeling crap unwell. A bad stomach he informed me, very painful. Now Ben never complains about feeling ill. He has suffered with both eczema and asthma since he was a baby and I have nearly lost him a few times as the asthma was so severe. He hadn't eaten, and I thought maybe he had just picked up a bug (where from I haven't a clue as he spends all his free time in his pit gaming!)
I got some paracetamol for him and no sooner had he taken them, then oh boy! a nuclear explosion of what I thought was sick, but was in fact blood! & lots of it. Yikes.
2 minutes later we where in the car off to the A & E Dept., This was on a Sunday and about 11.30 pm so I thought it would be empty. Wrong! Full to the brim with many a drunken soul. How nice.
After an hour we were called to the Triage, who on taking his temperature, heart rate & blood pressure decided Ben was quite ill and needed to be seen asap.
His temp was very very high, blood pressure very low and his heart beat racing dangerously high. He was prodded, poked ,had so much blood taken, every test conceivable and they still have no clue what caused it. He is due to have a camera put down to see if there is any lasting damage. He was admitted into hospital and given fluids and the following day was still much the same. It then went (thankfully) not long after as quick as it came.
There has been a 'bug' which everyone seems to be getting and we think he had that, just a violent version of it. Fingers crossed the results are okay.
I have made a few things...
Now hanging on my wall.
Made from an Abby Glassenberg pattern
I made one each for my grandson's.
Note there is only one in the pic. My other attempt - not so good lol.
I had a spare half hour this afternoon, so I made this.
I took inspiration from the fabric (on his tummy)
At the weekend my Grandson Jack turned 1 year old!
An absolute joy!
We had a little party for him. Good times.
Birthday cupcakes for a 1st Birthday
Birthday cupcakes for my mum's friend.
For a 1st Anniversary. I made the cupcakes for their wedding and decided to replicate them for their Anniversary.
After a couple of months of colds, coughs & hospital visits I am hoping things will calm down. Thank goodness all the snow has gone. Beautiful sunshine for the last couple of days. Perfect!
I am about to sit down and watch Hope Springs.
Starring Tommy Lee Jones (who I have a bit of a crush on) Steve Carrell (who I have a bit of a crush on) Dear me!
Any how I am hoping it is good as I have been looking forward to watching it for ages.
Also got to squash it in before 24 hours in A & E (channel 4) New series starts tonight. Love it!
Have a great night.
