My past week.

 Well, here is another long awaited catch up post. I don’t seem to be able to keep up lately. I’m not sure if it’s inspiration I need or what. Anyway, here  are a few things.

At my Saturday sit n sew I made a pin cushion/bin tidy to go beside my chair. This was a tutorial night workshop our group had while I was away in March. I finally got to do mine. I am very happy with how it worked out.

On Monday we had our daughter and family over for dinner as it was her birthday later in the week and she was going to be working. So we had a lovely night together.
Of course there was a little cake

Never too old for birthday cake.

Our grandson made dessert. Berry fruity dream sorbet in the Thermo. He is 13, now taller than me and did it all by himself while I watched over his shoulder. He did well. Yes I am loving the Thermo.

I hadn’t been feeling well and had left work early so nothing special was made. The following day I wasn’t feeling the best and stayed home again. Spent some time knitting my teabag strings
Donated tea bags

Collection from work

All the tags are off

The strings are ready to tie together.

Where the knitting was

Where the knitting is now

I had a painful Tuesday night so off to the ER on Wednesday morning. To find out I was being admitted with diverticulitis. Oh so painful.

The wards were full so this was my new home for 2 days. The short stay ward.

When I could finally have a meal that I could keep down without any pain I was allowed home. My meal. We always get told to not have too much salt. Oh boy. That soup and mash was hard to swallow. I think they used the whole salt container. I did mange to eat it without any other trouble though.

I had some beautiful flowers delivered by a friend

So here we are on Saturday and I am joining in with Chooky on zoom. I was supposed to be away at a quilt retreat so I am very happy to join in on zoom. I am sewing away with my little hexie flowers.

Well that’s it for this week. Here I was thinking I hadn’t done much but reading this I know I have done plenty. I’m hoping to go to work for a short day and see how I manage.
Thanks for all your caring support and messages.

It wasn’t the best way to spend most of your week. I hope you are back to your healthy self again very soon. It was nice to catch up with you briefly in Saturday. Considering you were out of action for a lot of the week, you did achieve quite a bit. What will the hexies be used in?

Maria said...

Pleased your home and recovering. Good to catch up on Zoom even for a short while.
Handy pin cushion and bin.
You had a pile of tea bags strings to get ready…..
The knitting is growing.

I'm sorry to read about your trip to hospital, your condition is very painful indeed, I've been told. Do hope you are feeling much better now.

Very sorry Jo to read you have been in hospital, sounds like a painful time for you, but good to hear you are back home and feeling better. Good too, to see you on zoom even for a short time.

I'm sorry to hear you were having problems Jo. Glad you are home and doing well now.Interesting projects, what is your tea bag knitting going to be? Take care.

I hope you continue to improve and that you are able to manage the changes necessary to prevent future trips to the hospital.
You had a pretty good good week considering you were ill for some of it.

Stay well

I so glad that you're feeling better and at home. It was lovely to catch up on the zoom over the weekend. During one of my many zoom log-outs through the day, I blitzed up the rest of my parmesan, added chilli flakes (I didn't measure and it was spicyyyyy - whoops) and made the parmesan crisp. How good is a thermie! Thanks for the inspo :)

Karen S said...

You have had a rough week. Good to know you are on the right side of it now. Take care.
Aren't those bin tidies a great idea! So useful.
Hope you can get back to all your stitching now.

Oh, dear! I know what you mean about the super salty hospital food! Hope they got you all fixed up, and you follow a diet that will help you not have a repeat. Love the teabag scarf!

That was an eventful week!

Hope you are feeling much better.

Jo, sorry to read you were unwell - hopefully that stays away now - hospital food is often not very tasty - but overloaded with salt??? not good at all.

I am agog at all those tea bag strings...happy knotting & knitting.
