All in a days work

Have you ever had days when you should have stayed in bed? The last couple of days have been those sort. It all started when I slept in yesterday, I should have gone with my mil for her hospital visit to see the gynaecologist but I didn't get up in time. IKnowing her nurse from the home would be going with her I didn't worry about it and instead I went for a walk with dh. Keith who can't sit for long has to walk as much as he can.

When we got back there was a message on the answerphone from mil consultant asking me to ring him. I did and it wasn't good news, the outcome of which is she goes back again next week for biopsies. As she has alzheimer and can be uncooperative they'll have to be done under anaesthetic. In the afternoon I had a meeting when the message came through from the hospital asking me contact them. I left early and worried myself all the way home only to find it was a duplicate message.

Today she became ill with pain, so much pain that the ambulance was called and the paramedics administered morphine before taking her to A&E. Several fruitless and frustrating phone calls later I find out she's been sent home with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. Guess we'll just have to wait and find out what happens next week.

There is a French Market in town at the moment and Keith decided he'd like to walk into town to see it. There were lots of olives, sausages, sweets and nuts not to mention handbags to see but someone bumped into Keith quite hard and his back hurt him so we phoned Sy and he came and picked us up.

I did though manage to get Lesson 3 journal done before Lesson 4 is published tomorrow. This is Sue Bleiweiss's More Journal Making Course. This is my concentina back journal. I want to give it as a stocking filler for the partner of my son and she likes pink. The fabric is one of Kasse Fassett design, border prints.

Journal back
Inside journal, it has two envelope signatures and one book signature in the middle. Looking forward to tomorrow lesson.
