First is the October calendar theme.
Winged things from Jacquie, Jan and Pauline. As you see I made five but have only received three, no doubt the others will turn up before too long.
Recently most of my time has been taken up with finishing the beading on the wall hanging for Marc and Alix. I hope to get it finished this week and will post pictures of it shortly. It's been a real labour of love but I am happy with the result so far. Marc and Alix bought the canvas it is to be attached to and I brought it home with me today and if I get it finished soon they may even get it before Xmas.
It was Marc's big 4 ohh birthday on Friday and he's been celebrating every since. Sy drove the rest of the family (including me) down to have lunch in Leeds with Marc and Alix. I haven't seen them for a few weeks so it was lovely to be able to spend time with them. We took Flynn down too as he has never been to his Uncle Marc's house. He loves his Uncle Marc who plays silly games with him.
Just so long as he doesn't teach him to change the colour of the flowers in the garden with spray paint, which is what he did with Matthew when he was Flynn's age.
I need to make a start on my Christmas presents but so far haven't a clue what I'm going to do, except for one - I want to make a cover for Julie's Galaxy 3 8" tablet, so far she hasn't been able to buy one so I'm keeping it as a surprise. Thinking of adding another page or two to Flynn's Quiet Book or maybe just repair the fishing line which has taken a bit of a hammering. He's very taken with the ones where I've attached magnets so need to think about adding another page of that sort.
Still struggling with my sister whose secondary progressive multiple sclerosis has now been confirmed by the test results. Still no sign of occupational therapy or social service help but she does have an appointment in December to see the MS community nurse but its in James Cook so a bit of travelling involved there. It's a worry though as she is very thin, eating poorly and walking really badly now. Just hope we get some help for her soon.
