About Me

My photo
melting but not down

Sunday, 9 October 2011


Now that I'm going to be a grandma (next April), I've been inspired to finish Mr Lily's tank top and my winter cardigan, to clear the decks for baby clothes.  As usual, all I want to do is surf free knitting pattern sites and get those needles clicking, housework can go hang.  It helps to keep occupied - mum is not well at all, she still hasn't regained her speech or full mobility on her right side so I'm sure she had a stroke after that fall.  She sleeps and moans a lot, as though she's in pain, but spits out her medication - even the liquid painkiller.  She hasn't eaten for a couple of days and if she doesn't pick up today the home will call the doctor out on Monday to see whether s/he thinks the End of Life protocol should be put in place, with MacMillan nurse care, etc.

Lily, congrats on the grandbaby to be! How exciting. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I will keep you both in my thoughts.

I too have picked up the needles and am knitting a pair of fingerless mitts.

Quick, put a photo on Ravelry! What do you think of my first baby project - I've put it up on my Ravelry site, I'm now 'bamboolover' if you're having trouble finding me.
