Whoo hoo, the arthroscopy seems to have been a great success - I can walk without that telltale swinging limp! My other foot has stopped hurting too, I am amazed, especially as the surgeon did not seem to hold out much hope - he was talking in terms of a knee replacement sometime next year. I am being careful not to stretch my luck, just glad to get my life back again.
Look what wonderful goodies arrived in the mail today for me - I was lucky enough to win Dale's giveaway of black and white (and red) threads. What a gorgeous selection, very hard to see all the lovely colours and textures, I can't wait to start using them - just have to get sorted for those pesky painters first!
Again this photo does not do the page sent from Helina justice. All the pages are so different, I will have a wonderful variety by the end of this swap.
Very hot and dry here today with a horrid northerly wind blowing - probably blowing up a storm. We could do with the rain, but I have polished furniture stored on a verandah where the wind could blow in - another couple of days yet before I can move it back inside, then the painters move into the kitchen - and I would love to move out! I hate the thought of being completely out of the kitchen area by 7am - especially having to be dressed ready to go out for the day by then as well, because they are doing the hallway into the bedrooms and bathroom as well. Ugh! I know it will all be worth it in the end, but..................
One thing is certain, this is the last time we will be going through this process, the previous paint has lasted 35 years - I don't think we will still be around in another 35, and certainly would not be worrying about a coat of paint.
