Out of exile

On Thursday we went down to London to see the Professor. Everything that could be crossed was as we didn’t want a repeat performance of my hip popping out again.  I’m delighted to say that all is well and I can get back to normality. Yippee!!!!!

I’m still not allowed to climb stairs until I see him again in January and I’ve got to take it easy walking with my stickies as he doesn’t want my shoulders and arms overdoing things - he doesn’t know that I do boxing  so they’re a lot stronger than they look.... If I behave myself then I should see a big improvement in my walking by the summer. 

Not only did I had my first bath in three months last night (it was pure bliss by the way) but I was finally allowed back into my sewing room !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here it is.....
 

It’s not very big, only nine feet by seven feet, so finding space to put things can be a bit tricky, especially when I inherited a lot of my mam's sewing items.

However it's my little corner of the world and like most crafter I love spending time in there. I even have my own kettle and fridge....

Have a great week.

Gertie xx

PS why not pop over to Handmade Monday to see what other fellow craft bloggers have been up to.

  2. Brilliant news from your Dr - no stopping you now eh? Your craft room is very tidy! Is this cos you haven't been allowed in it for so long or are you always so neat and tidy?

    1. We bought the kettle because I can't carry anything so wouldn't be able to have a hot drink when I'm working in my room xx
