This year really has been completely crazy! I won't go into it all as I am sure it would bore you and some of it is personal too.
You may have seen that my last post was in July! Yes 3 months ago! I had fully intended to see the KCWC through but as you can see I only posted up to day 2! Whoops!
There has been plenty of sewing happening here though. Mostly store sewing. Lots of fabric purchases...including some for ME! I now just have to find the time to sew for myself! I have lots of patterns in mind (future blog post perhaps?).
This week has been particularly crazy! Last week Miss 3 fell off the bunk bed which we had only received 4 days earlier and broke her arm. We went off to emergency and had X-rays and they couldn't see a lot due to the bones in little ones not be calcified like ours are so they assumed a simple fracture and put it in a cast and sent us home to be seen by the Orthopaedic Clinic in 7 days time. 7 days later and we find out it was not so simple and she would need surgery the following morning! To cut a long story short all is ok and the surgery went well but we have lots of X-rays and appointments and another surgery over the next couple of months! Miss 3 was a champion! She was charming everyone and was the model patient(as told to us by almost every nurse that saw her!)
Seeing the children in hospital that had much greater problems than my little one really made me so thankful that all she was in there for was a broken arm. It is so easy to go about our daily lives and not be thankful for the basic things we have, like our health! So if you are reading this today go and hug your family and be thankful for what you have because there is someone who is much worse off than you out there no matter how bad you think things are!
