It's been another busy old week and it's only Wednesday! So as you have probably guessed I have no card to show yet. There is one half coloured so at my usual snails pace it should be ready in a week or so.On a positive note I have booked some time off work in April, and I plan to play all day in my Jammie's.
I have also organised all the crafty stuff for my 1 year anniversary, I just need to plan out how to do it yet.
So what am I thankful for? Lots of things. My lubberly hubbly, my son - whom I do actually worship on the days I'm not threatening to throttle him, and my family. My friends are precious, they are my friends because they choose to be rather than my family that inherited me through birth or marriage and really had no choice in the matter. That's why I am always extra thankful for my friends, I know what a pain I can be!
The weekend was spent doing the usual cleaning, washing, ironing and grocery shopping, plus a trip to the cemetery to place flowers on the headstone. I spent the remainder of the weekend trying very hard to smile and not be a miserable sod, didn't work though. But what it does always do is remind of everything I do have to be grateful for.
I thought I'd post a more recent picture of Poppy.
Don't they grow so quickly - too quickly! She is just 8 months old now and doing fine for the most part, doing all the normal things that an 8 month old does. Poppy does still have regular scans to do with the valve that didn't close at birth. The hospital had told Jon and Sam that by the time Poppy was 6 months old it would've closed on it's own, but the last scan revealed otherwise. Another scan is due in a couple of months and if there's been no change then it looks like she will have to have an operation to close the valve. Naturally, they are worried, but things can change in a couple of months so I think we'll all just have to wait and see.
Right, I'd best get off to Jujitsu with the boy.
Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xxx
