My son reckons that we have been walking under ladders, lol
Good news is that Tom's results were not too bad, just a bit more lung function lost but he is feeling a lot better today. Last night we set the indoor phones onto intercom and I closed the door to my bedroom so that I was not disturbed by his coughing, If I do not get a good nights sleep I am no good to anyone.
Now for more gloom.
I lost my iphone somewhere, must have fallen out of my bag, luckily I am not a big fan of the thing and mostly use it for taking photo's and listening to my talking books.
My son and daughter have both said they have an old one I can replace it with so that isn't too bad.
The real bugger is that the car went in for an MOT and needs £920.00 worth of repairs.
We have had this car for just under a year and the mechanic reckons that most of these things should have been picked up in the last MOT before we bought it.
Obviously been sold a duff car.
I guess if an unscrupulous dealer wants to doctor things he can.
Coming on top of the vets fees its not funny.
As I have quoted before it seems that
'When sorrows come they come not as single spies but in batallions'
Certainly feels like that to us at the moment.
Spent most of the day yesterday while waiting for the consultant to ring messing about with the fabric twine.
In the tutorials online they say to just add another piece in by just laying it alongside the piece you are working with, I found that too bulky and so I just joined mine on the machine, much neater.
First piece finished, peg just holds it and stops any unravelling.
Okay, not the best but not bad for a first attempt.
I wound it around a bead sewing as I went.
I have some jewellery findings and am hopefully going to make these into earrings.
Will show when finished.
Bit dark but you get the idea.
What would we do without this room, its at the top of the house, nice and light and our refuge when things are sticky.
Fingers crossed that nothing else goes wrong...
