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.
Getting very chilly round here now, time to bring the heaters out of the loft.Electric blanket on the bed as well.
Had a few pretty sun rises this last wee while. Sadly nothing round here to line it up with.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
