I'm still here.

Yes, I am still around, though not very much lately. I am spending very little of my spare time on the PC at the moment, so I've been doing a bit of lurking on blogs & boards. The RSI I get in my right wrist/elbow from using a mouse is pretty painful recently & sometimes its enough to be on a PC most of the day at work. I'm still HDing with all of you though & sending hugs where necessary :o)

A huge thank you to everyone who sent hugs & warm wishes following my recent lump scare. They were really appreciated. I had my 2nd check up just over a week ago & all seems fine. My doc believed me to be quite run down & stressed which is probably effecting my immune system. I could do with a holiday & am off in 2 weeks time to go & stay with my best friend Sharon up in Yorkshire for an extended long weekend. We will be celebrating as she's just found out she's expecting again :o) They've been trying for baby no.2 for 3 years so I'm really pleased for them.

I have been doing a bit of stitching, but sadly the USB connector on my camera seems to have died totally meaning I can't upload the pics I took this morning :o( I have stitched her face and started her other arm which are over 1. I'm so pleased with how her face has turned out. I may have to get my brother to take a photo for me next time I'm visiting him & upload it that way.

I've discovered a wonderful garden nursery several miles away -
Old Barn Nurseries which has re-ignited my gardening bug! They have some beautiful Japanese Maples, some must be very old indeed as I nearly fainted when I saw the price tag on the £5,999.00 one! It was gorgeous though. They also have a fantastic pantry/restaurant which has delicious food. I can fully recommend a visit! ;o)
