Today I have been blogging exactly 10 years! Hard to believe I have been blogging for this amount of time. I had intended to write something well a bit more than usual, but my week went completely pearshaped.
The humble dot can have lots of interpretations!
Firstly my father went into hospital on the weekend with mystery severe internal bleeding and at 81, well that is always a worry, but today after a colonscopy and gastroscopy the news is positive- and abraded oesophagus so he can go home again.Also my father has a partner who is high care ( he is her carer) so we had to call in respite, as she would not budge, but the relief in home respite worked well thankfully, so that is good to know.
Then today my mother went into a hospital ( my parents have been separated for a long time) with intestinal infection and they have decided to move her to a big hospital that is better at caring for these conditions. My mother lives about 3 hours form where I live , so it all gets a bit complicated. The infection has been ongoing, she said she was clear on Monday night but said she still had some pain, so I asked her to please go and get another blood test, and the results were that the infection was not better.. Even so I feel a bit frazzled, as my daughter starts her end of high school/university entry exams next week. So all of this could not have happened at a worse time. Anyway I suppose dottie might be a good word for it somehow.
I have been making samples for a workshop I am teaching on Saturday and they wanted to do the travellers blanket but it can't be done in one day so I ran up some dottie samples.
On my mantel piece in the late afternoon sun- it looks a bit outlandish....
And thank you thank you all my followers and readers- for all your comments, for all your support, for all your positive thoughts and all your putting up with me.... if you leave a comment , I will put all your names in a hat and one lucky commenter will receive a bag of goodies ( I am too dottied at the moment to say what it will be but it will be a nice surprise)
