Beautiful Blackrose

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Whilst pao was in hospital, I went on a bit of a hunt through my stash for something really pretty, really easy to knit with a little fun to cheer up a really sad time. I found the yarn quite quickly – some Shelridge Farm W4 in Cornflower. Really gorgeous stuff that a nice pattern […]

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Well, we are still in a bit of a non-state re pao i.e. nothing has changed, he’s still poorly so I thought I’d show you what Tamyra loves best which is watching the washing machine. She is really intrigued by it and spends ages and ages watching it. Thank goodness for kitties when you’re feeling […]

Still floored

pao is still a bit under the weather so he’s been confined to bed. Lucky that Sirius is there to keep him company. Thank you so much for the lovely messages. He’s still got a way to go. Hopefully he’ll start to feel better soon.

Home again

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

but still needing lots of TLC. Abundant prayers and healing thoughts still needed, please.

Waiting waiting

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Although pao was told he was going to have an op this afternoon, they changed their minds and decided to monitor him for the next 24 hours instead. So now we wait to see if the pain stops and they send him home or the operate tomorrow. More of those healing thoughts and prayers, please. […]

There is something to be said when the best thing that happened all day was going to the dentist

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Oh yes, it was one of *those* days. pao had very sweetly taken the day off to take me to the dentist. A new dentist because my phobia of all things dentist-related had reached a new high and I was actually shaking and crying when I rang up to make the appointment. I had come […]

Paradise Loaf

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Ok, it’s official. I’m bananas. Sorry, that should read, ‘obsessed with bananas’. I’ve invented a new loaf cake which makes me think of the beach and should be eaten with a rum and coke or at the very least a Malibu with lots of ice. Or a nice cup of tea/coffee… Paradise Loaf (based on […]
