Decisions about Dolly

It’s been an unsettling week in this household. My very special and dear Uncle has been in hospital undergoing surgery. Unexpectedly this resulted in two surgeries within 24 hours. He is now doing well, but of course can’t have visitors – and other communication is very limited. At 96 both were something he’d rather not have had to endure, but both were necessary.

  • The month so far ..
    May is one of my favourite months of the year. The garden truly begins to blossom in more ways than one, the days lengthen to give good morning and early evening daylight, and there is warmth – not too much, but just enough for my poor Reynaud’s attacked body to cope!
  • Another Thirty
    April was a busy month but the April Thirty is complete! Colours used are all Stylecraft Special DK
  • Five Colour Friday
    Spring has been such a welcome season this year! Driving along the motorway is such a pleasure now that the trees are decorated with the first of the fresh green leaves, and if you can venture into the countryside there is evidence that bluebells will soon form a carpet. ( our sheltered garden already has …

  • Cranleigh is done!
    Sometimes everything runs smoothly with a blanket – sometimes it doesn’t!
