My ankle is improving , but slowly . still swollen and bruised and still painful , but I can get around . Some days are worse than others.
Hubby had Monday-Wednesday off last week to ease the pressure, went to work late on Thursday so he could take the kids to school first. He got sent home from work because of the snow and got back in time to collect the kids from school at lunch time, then they had a snow day on Friday .
Since the weekend , both kids and myself have started/had the rotten cold that is going round.
Snow showers and ice have made it very slippy and I will admit to being scared to go out in case I fall and hurt my ankle again .
That said , I have made the school run every day except Wednesday when both kids and I were feeling too rotten to bother ,
I am really ready for Winter to do one now , and usually I don't mind the cold weather .
Have managed to get some stitching in . I decided to just rummage through my charts and find things that I would like to stitch . Here's what I came up with .
Any child squares for Love Quilts .
We went through the fabric stash and she chose some that she liked . I drew a quick pattern and we cut out two pieces . I can't use the sewing machine properly with my dicky ankle , so did a bit with the opposite one and showed my girl how to use it and she did the rest .
Have to say , I was very impressed as she did what she was told and did it very well .
Here's what we came up with .
Now, she want to go on the sewing machine at every chance ,lol, but I have said we will wait until half term and do something then .
Hope everyone is well , We are still in the middle of a cold snap with threatened wintry showers and/or heavy frost . Not nice .
Incidentally , I am having a small problem with the comments. Not all of them are going through to my e-mail , so if I haven't replied to your comment it's either because of that or because some people still have their profile set to no reply..
