I have spent the last few days in hospital: nothing serious fortunately. It is amazing how much technology you can bring with you these days: the laptop with mobile broadband modem, mobile phone & camera. It certainly helps to pass the time and gives me a chance to read a few blogs and websites.
My dear friends Linda, Karyn, Julie & Laurel sent me the beautiful flowers in the pic. The are proteas and irises which are just gorgeous.
I made myself a little phone pouch to bring with me. It is well padded and lined with felt as I am such a clumsy person and am always dropping my phone. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out and I made a journal cover to match. The next project, when I am home again, will be a bag for my laptop.
The hospital is near to home which means Mike can visit me and bring me what I have forgotten, which is handy. The gardens are lovely and I sat outside this morning under the blossom trees - just after the lawns had been cut. It was gloriously warm, about 25 degrees, and peaceful. Since then it has thundered, and rained, so I am glad I took the opportunity to be outside this morning.
Apart from the medical stuff that is happening here, this is a great place to rest. Happy staff, great food (that I don't have to think about), and plenty of time to sit and stitch. I did suggest Mike might like to bring in my sewing machine but he declined! Anyway I will be home to dishes and washing again on Friday - I really am looking forward to that too. I do miss my own place and of course my dear Mike.
Wishing everyone a happy week full of inspiration and creativity.
