I am writing this blog on Monday night this week because tomorrow is my first night at college where I shall be starting my Counselling course! I have a new file, pens and a journal. I'm excited, like a child on their first day at school! My course book has not yet arrived so I hope don't get a black mark on my first night!!!
Well, no pictures of my desk this week (I can't find the camera) and actually it looks much the same as last week but with different colour fabric on it. If you remember I was making a Rudolph… well… I actually finished him!
Isn't he gorgeous! He was a bit fiddly, especially all the stuffing but I got there in the end!
I enjoyed making him so much that I now have a blue one on the go, and I must say he is coming along a lot faster than the first one!
Sometimes I know we are all very grateful for the pleasure, peace and diversions that our crafting gives us, a welcome break from the pressures of our busy/stressful lives.
No more for me than this weekend. My lovely Hubby who is a Type 1 Diabetic (insulin dependent) had the most hideous weekend with low blood sugars nearly all the time, no matter what he did. At about 10pm on Friday evening I had to call an ambulance and enlist the help of my neighbours as he was so ill. By 11pm I had a house full of neighbours, paramedics and police (suffice to say he left the house in the dark during a hypo totally unaware of what he was doing or where he was) ). Once we got him back to the house, we waited 40 minutes for an ambulance which came all the way from Llandovery whilst we have depot and major hospital 8 minutes away! He didn't go into hospital thank goodness as his sugar levels did stabilze. So all day Saturday he slept and myself feeling totally wrung out, had a quiet day in my craft room. We did manage a gentle stroll in the sunshine on Sunday for an hour along the coastal path. More tests and doctor's visit on Thursday. My neighbours were great, other neighbours swapping houses to look after sleeping children while their parents were helping me. I am overflowing with gratitude at their kindness and love.
Thank you to you fellow deskers to for taking the time to read this, I needed to share it with someone. I know you'll care. Hubby doesn't remember a thing.
Have a happy week and if you need a little down time, I'm sure you'll find it at your desks!
