Guess who’s doing the happy dance today…….finally a letter arrived from the hospital telling me what date my carpel tunnel surgery will be.
Friday 11th April 2008
Can you tell I’m happy….vbg. It works out so well with everything we have on.
It’s after Easter which is when we spend three or four days (depending on how hard we work) cutting wood for our winter fires.
It’s a weekend which means I will have three
willing children and a husband to pitch in and help around the house while I rest.
It’s after the holidays which means I can (after recovering from cutting all that wood) get the house sorted, baking etc done and be orangised and ready for surgery and my time recovering.
Ohh who am I kidding? You know me – I will be running around like a demented rabbit trying to do everything at once as always.
My first instinct (after getting down from the table top where I was dancing – not a pretty sight I can assure you) is to rush around madly trying to sort out the garden, sewing and baking…..but I’m not going to. I’m going to do this in a controlled manner. I will do what I can, when I can.
I guess the nicest part of all this , apart from the fact I will be soon pain free, is I treated myself yesterday and bought/pre ordered the latest Elm Creek Quilts novel by Jennifer Chiaverini “The Winding Ways Quilt” which isn’t due for release until April so I should get it either just before surgery or just after. I am also bidding on another of her books “The Quilters Homecoming” which crossing fingers and toes I will win and it will be here before the surgery date. Can’t wait. Has any one read “The Quilters Homecoming”? Was it any good? See how organised I am – there can be nothing nicer than curling up with a good book or two and resting – hot cuppa on the table beside me and maybe some chocolate biscuits to nibble on. Note to self – buy some chocolate biscuits and hide them so the family doesn’t find them….wicked grin.
Right off to hang out washing then do some more machine satin stitch on February’s Baltimore Quilt block. I’m so behind on them. March’s pattern has been printed and I haven’t even looked at it.
