Yes, it's that time again.....FNSI is THIS Friday Night and my favourite time of the month....where I get to stitch and relax with all my stitching friends.
Don't you love that time too? A bit of a selfish indulgence, but I prefer to think of it as creative sanity time....or just plain ol' sanity time!
Yesterday I'd planned to get so much done at home, including this post, but a quick trip to Townsville, where my boy has moved, to take him to the eye specialist took priority. He has a condition called Keratoconus which he's just recently been to Brisbane to have surgery for on his left eye (surgery on his right eye was 5 years ago). Unfortunately he hasn't been able to work since as he works with computers and his eyes can't focus, nor can he drive as he can't see the difference between traffic lights, so he can't even get to work. This can take up to 12 months to improve so we would love your prayers as we've now found, apart from hard contact lenses, (which cost upward of $1600 a pair and he needs two pairs!), time is the only thing that MAY bring some improvement....or a corneal transplant down the track.
So while I was there, I gave him a hand setting up house. He and his girlfriend moved about 4 weeks ago for his job, then he had surgery, now he can't work. While Tiana was working, we thought we'd surprise her by getting the pantry 'built' (well... putting a flatpack together is technically building isn't it?). As Nick can't read the instructions and finding the screw holes is a challenge, I took on the role of chief constructor! Pretty proud of our handiwork.....what do you think?
I got home at 4 and we went over to see dad-in-law. He's had another turn and seems he's had a bladder infection. He's getting more and more confused though and wants to tear down the walls of the house and build new, better ones so he can move his furniture to his house. He's really not sure where he is. Last night he had to catch a plane but he wasn't sure where to or why, just very insistent....dementia really is very cruel. He's been off to the doctor today and they've upped his meds so hopefully that will help.
I did manage to get some sewing done last week.....working on Mr B's 'Diggers 'n Dozers' quilt.
I'm off to empty out my bathroom.....we've got the builders coming tomorrow to tear it out and start again! That job I talked about HERE....it's finally taking shape! I'll share photos later in the week!
In the meantime...don't forget to sign up!
xox sugary hugs :o)
