I have had a strange few days of highs and lows. Firstly my mom had a lovely surprise when she opened my cushion on her birthday. She really loved it and was quite emotional about it on the phone to me!! She has since showed it off to her neighbour, her hairdresser etc....
Sadly we had some upsetting news on her birthday; my Auntie (who I am doing the bookmark for) had been called back after a mammogram to investigate a lump! We had to wait until Friday to hear the outcome. It is a small cancerous tumor but the Doctor is very optimistic that it can be fully removed with only a small amount of surgery and after a course of radio theraphy she should make a good recovery. So still a little worrying but looks very hopeful. When my mom called my Auntie's daughter (my cousin) it turned out they had had an even worse week as her husband's mother had passed away on Monday!
So not the best of birthdays for my mom, but we still managed to go out for a lovely meal last night. We have a fantastic Chinese Resturant just down the road called the Emerald, the girl's love it there too... we eat loads and the girls tried squid and duck!!! I was so full and tired when we got home that I was unable to do any stitching!!
Our other good news on Friday was that Laura has managed to secure a work experience place at her old primary school and she as over the moon. She has decided she wants to be a Nursery School Teacher now when she is older and I think she'll be great at it. Just need to sort Becky's place out now... this has been such a nightmare!
I have been doing well on Henry though, my other colours arrived so I have all I need now. Several of you asked what the final picture was like.... well I only have this small one that came with the scanned chart.... but you can at least see how it will look eventually.
I forgot to mention on my last post about my Pooh chart. As only Shellie and Deb requested to be entered in the draw I felt a bit mean just picking one of them.... so I sorted them both out with some Pooh goodies!
I will update my Henry stitching now on Sunday or Monday, I am going to get back to it now while Stuart is busy starting his Christmas Cake (he always does it early so he can add plenty of booze to it over the weeks!) I am very lucky as I am a bad cook and Stuart is a good cook!! So he does most of the cooking in our house... yeah!!!
Have a good weekend.
