GOOD AND BAD

 I have not been posting recently as things are not easy here.

Tom decided to add to his woes by having a heart attack last Friday.

He was carted off and we honestly thought he would not be coming back but as usual he bounced back (well not so much bounced as limped) but he's back home with another stent in his heart and on the mend.

On the plus side, my Grand daughter came up to see us the other day and she is learning to crochet.

I gave her some yarn and a bag of ready made squares that I had in the cupboard.



Look what she did with them.

Made herself a little sun top.

I'm so proud of her and pleased that someone will carry on the crafting  in our family as my daughter isn't the least bit interested in yarn or fabric etc.

  1. Bryony - devastated to read of Tom's woes (which of course are your woes). Good to know he is back home in the arms of family and felines. And well done to your grand-daughter (she's a beauty isn't she?). Best wishes to you and Tom for stable health and having a grand-daughter there to enjoy. F & Mr T

  3. I was worrying about your blog silence, Briony - but never expected to hear of a heart attack - I feel badly for you both but I'm so glad Tom is home again and the stent is in. You must both be worn to a frazzle. I'm sending warm thoughts and best wishes for comfort and strength for both of you.

    Clever granddaughter - what a sweet top! It's always nice to have someone in the family carry on our interests, isn't it?
