Aren't we a strange breed, always glad to get to hospital when things are against us and then the first thing we want to know is 'when can I go home?'.
Made it back last evening, battered & bruised and rather tired, but at least I get to spend my birthday at home, even if it is trussed up like a Christmas turkey in my lovely "sexy" support stockings (UGH!!) Not too unpleasant a stay I must say , the staff were very nice and helpful , the food dreadful (as always - who likes hospital food anywhere!!) . I' d been saving the last Harry Potter book ,The Deathly Hallows, until now and it certainly caused a lot of interest. The appeal of these books is amazing, but I never thought that I'd be having an unofficial French lesson discussing Harry Potter with such lovely company, it certainly shortened my days but I am not sure that the other patients were happy about the amount of time being spent in my room by the Potter fans amongst the nursing staff!!!
Well, the secret is out - my Miniature Booty mini has arrived at its new home, and thankfully Kate is pleased with it, so I guess it's OK to share it with everyone now
It turned out just over 15 inches square in the end, the colours are really out of my comfort zone, but this wasn't about what I like, rather trying to make something that would please my partner. I must admit has been a bit of a worry as this was a first for me, but I did enjoy the experience and feel a bit happier about making the next one!
Birthday treats today include my first shower for days (!) and....... I get to go to bed tonight without my delighful stockings - how lucky is that !!!!!!
