The 29th & 30th; Finally! Things have happened.

The 29th & 30th; Finally! Things have happened.


The 29th of January.  Finally! Things have happened. But I'll get to that. I had a decent night, waking up just after nine and no horrible dreams like Monday night.

Mommy was out from about ten until three at Grandma's pre-op for next week, so I was a bit stuck during that time. I made the tail and ears of Bridget the Elephant and now she's finished, so I've got to finish Alexandre the Russian Blue Cat now. He needs ears, a tail and two more legs. And a face. I wrote my thank you letters and a blog post, and when Mommy finally returned, I was able to have some lunch (my lungs are not up to that level of activity yet). Oh, I tweeted into This Morning after an organ donation story and Philip read it out, although he kind of fumbled what I said for some reason. 

So we spoke to Becky the clinical nurse specialist about when my venoplasty might be, and she emailed Igor and Ram. Ram got back to her and said he had spoken to Andrew Willis yesterday regarding this, and I am booked in for Wednesday the 4th so I'm happy now. 

I am looking forward to seeing Sadie tomorrow, as long a there isn't too much snow! We had some flurries today but not a vast amount. 

The 30th of January. 

I went out today, hooray! I spent my morning in the usual way, watching tv and crocheting the ears of Alexandre the Russian Blue Cat who I finished this evening. 

I met up with Sadie at Yorks Espresso Bar for lunch at twelve. I gave her the polar bear she'd requested and she's named him Pablo. We both had ham and Swiss cheese croissants, then I also had a chocolate brownie which was excellent. We had a nice time because we always do, including the admiration of my friend Andy's baby who was wearing exceptional stripy socks. 

When I got home, I finish Alexandre's ears and tail, then I sewed him together and gave him a face. I think he is the best size - I've used different hooks for each one, Emma with a 4mm, Bridget with a 3mm and Alexandre with a 3.5mm. 

Tonight I am chilly and would like to go to bed soon. It's only twenty past six. 

The 31st & 1st; I've felt really rather grotty all day.

The 27th & 28th; I need to be deflated.
