Project 365 week 45 and 46.

Sunday

No overtime so home to see what hubby has been up to in the shed. Emptying off one into here so he can dismantle and possibly repair the small one.





Monday

Getting very chilly round here now, time to bring the heaters out of the loft.Electric blanket on the bed as well.







Tuesday

Had a few pretty sun rises this last wee while. Sadly nothing round here to line it up with.





Wednesday

Been cutting out and ironing squares ready for my next project. Easier this way as can just randomly go and do small amounts of sewing at a time.




Thursday

Spotted these, being sold in a charity auction so I put a bid in on them and won them. Approx 2 inches tall but I liked them.





Friday

Had not been feeling well all week, had come to the conclusion I had a urine infection, So tablets from the GP should help. Unfortunately between pains in my stomach and needing to pee every ten or fifteen minutes I was not far from the door apart from going to the GP.






Saturday

I had been doing some sewing earlier in the day, took a break to get something to eat and within an hour my arm was starting to ache. The ache got worse and it got to the stage I could not move my arm, could not lift it, could not do anything with it.The pain got worse and worse so I phoned the local out of hours doctors and eventually got an appointment for 6.45pm. They were running late and time I got seen an hour later to be honest I would have happily let him send me to the morgue if it stopped the pain. He diagnosed a frozen shoulder, strange expression when it feel like somebody is drilling into the top half of arm with six red hot pokers. Even had to get hubby to take my t-shirt off and put it back on for me so he doctor could examine me. Pain was worse than labour.
I was given an injection of Pethidine that was suppose to tide me over night and a prescription for 30/500 co-codamol. Injection spaced me put but would not say it relieved the pain.

This was as much sewing as I got done. Was hoping to have it finished by next weekend but looking unlikely now. This is the front and back of what will be four squares and another five will compliment it to make a king size quilt.






Sunday

Had no sleep, could not get comfy no matter how I lay. Hubby picked up the prescription for me but they did not really touch the pain either.
Fifi was doing a reading in church on behalf of the Cadets and Bob was in the flag party for the Scouts.
Not easy to take pictures when you cant use one arm so not the best pictures going.








Monday

Made a phone call to Occupational Health to get onto a waiting list for physio. Not expecting to be seen before Christmas, but when you work for the NHS you may as well take advantage of the specialists.
Had Spud round for a while while DD1 ran hubby to Kilmarnock to pick something up that would not fit in our car.
She had a lot of fun playing with the tea pot and cups. Really nice to have her without the twins she is so much calmer without them and nice to get time to play with her as usually Minky demands most of your time and attention.






Tuesday

Third sleepless night in a row, so back to GP for something stronger for over night.Having to get hubby to do the driving as I cannot move my arm well enough to reach the steering wheel and too spaced out on pain killers to be able to drive safely.
 These new tablets were not a good match, upset my stomach, made me really dizzy and spaced out, and I was up half the night vomiting with them. Made me feel truly dreadful. Back to the paracetamol it is.

We stopped at the local garage for petrol, hubby has been doing all the driving in the last few days and I have not been in the car, and it never enters his head to put petrol in,. but the garage owner was saying he has had a frozen shoulder in the past and he found a massage helped, very painful but helped to unknot the tension. So I remembered that I had a tens machine that I won many years ago and have never used, so I got it out and have been using four or more times a day since. Hopefully it is doing more good than harm.









Wednesday

One of the oldies in the complex I do holiday relief cleaning in went into a nursing home just over a year ago, the family have eventually sold the house. I had been promised some crafting books and some other bits and pieces. One of the items was the small chest or drawers that had a lot of cottons, a few measuring tapes, few pairs of scissors and a few things I did not recognise I asked about on Facebook. A lot of interesting bits and pieces in the craft book.



Thursday

Got a letter through from the physio dept to phone and make an appointment, So phoned them and they offered me all the outlying areas to choose from, and as they are all pretty much the same distance from me I just asked for the first available appointment, got one for next Thursday. Pleasantly surprised how soon it was nut not complaining. Meanwhile I will use the exercises the GP gave me on Tuesday.





Friday


Been a long boring week with little sleep and not able to do much. So I manged to try out a few  crochet stitches I have not tried before. Not sure that I will ever make anything with the patterns as not sure they would stay square as they get bigger, but may well try it at some point.








Saturday

Fifi turned 15 today. Happy Birthday Fifi. She is turning into a very pleasant young lady who makes us all proud with what she achieves. Did get a picture of her with her cake but her and her two pals had been using face masks before we got there and she still had it on, so you have the cake without Fifi in the picture.

Project 365 week 44

Sunday

No overtime today unfortunately but decided to use my time wisely and entered a pile of large value postcard entry competitions. Well I won't win if I don't enter. Having said that I posted them on Monday and got three of them back on Tuesday. Guess the postman was not sensible enough to realise the large written address was where it was to go and not the smaller address label added sideways.






Monday

Finished the table cloth for my sewing table, it is to cover the sides to hide the disaster underneath it.
Not the most beautiful material but some of the remains from the start of the year when I was buying odd bedding to practise with.



Took Bob to gymnastics. It is a three mile drive from our village to the next one, less than a five minute drive. Just as we drove into the next village Bob tells me he does not feel well, he felt sick. So a quick indicate into the very convenient street on our left and get him out onto the grass, Luckily he was not sick but we turned round and went home again. He was sick a few times in the evening.
 Bob was diagnosed last month with Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) and have to admit to it worrying me. His other medical issues are visible and/or audible and are easier to detect but this one is neither and can prove fatal. If you consider he gets higher priority with this from the ambulance service than a heart attack victim, that will let you know how serious it can be. Vomiting is one of the things that needs to be taken seriously.
Poor Fifi also came home from school saying she felt sick and spent the night vomitting as well.



Tuesday

Having popped a post onto a AI Facebook page last night asking for the best was to deal with giving the drugs to Bob that is required during this type of illness to save deterioration. Somebody kindly popped this information sheet onto my post.







Wednesday

Spotted these in the reduced section of the supermarket, cost 25% of the last packet I bought. Can't resist a bargain, and it is not as thought they can go off.






Thursday

A visit to the dentist, not my favourite pastime I have to say.  But needed a cracked back filling redoing and a chip on a front tooth sorting. The front tooth will be all the years of using my teeth to open packets and cut sellotape etc.
Having finished my crocheting I need a portable project on the go for breaks at work and waits at hospitals. Decided as Spud is the only one without a piece of cross stitch work with her name weight and date of birth on it I am going to make her one similar to what the twins got last year. Should be finished for her birthday in March.









Friday

We finally took delivery of our new shed yesterday. Only ( ha ha)  took about seven weeks since we ordered it.
It came yesterday and luckily today was dry so it is up, windows in and roofing felt on. The finishing touches need doing but should be wind and water tight for the wet and windy weekend we are due.
Popped down to watch the three wee ones while DD1 took Bob to his after school activity.
DD1 was at the specialist with Bob today for his AI. At least after Monday night gave her an opportunity to ask questions she may not have thought about.






Saturday


Finished the blanket I have made for a dog rescue site. They are always fund raising and the last one I made went for £18 so hoping this will go for good money as well. Happy to personalise it with a name should the winner wish.
If you wish to place a bid on it feel free you should find it here
