Hoo Are You #20

Hiya.  No I haven't died.  Just in a bit of pain with the old wrist.  Anyhooo I'm doing a Hoo Are You, because I miss doing them.  To make it even spicier, I'm listening to Don Mclean *snort*

Ok lets goooooooo!!!!!!!!

1. How many times a year do you get your hair cut?

Well there is a little story behind my haircuts this year.  I wanted to have my hair cut off but wasn't brave enough.  I mean I almost sat on it and being curly was just rikkidoodlous to maintain.  So last year I made a decision to get it cut.  So the first cut I had 4 inches cut off, second cut 6 inches, third cut 3 inches, fourth cut, 3 inches, 5 cut 2 inches. That was 18 inches then I have it trimmed every 8 weeks or so because it grows really slow.  Unlike my mum's hair which I think she washes in miracle grow or something, she has hers cut every 4 weeks because it's grown out.  Anyhooo less about her more about me..  SOOOO when I came back from my holidays I had another 3 inches chopped off and also coloured and then my last cut I had another 2 or 3 inches off which brings it just covering the back of my neck.  It has been the best thing I have ever done let me tell you..

2. Where is the worst place to be stuck waiting?

In a queue.  I get all fidgety and although I am being as patient as can be,  I am not know for my patience lol (that's due to being A.D.D.) I do understand they are doing their best sometimes.  Other times they are just busy yaking away, which drives me insane.

3. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Cheese, Cheese and CHEEEESE *starts drooling a little*

4. What's your favorite thing about where you live?

Well that's easy, the beach.  You can't beat it Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter.  It changes with the seasons.  I totally can have a good mind clearance just by spending time watching the sea <3...

5. What's your favorite fruit? Veggie?

It has to be strawberries, with a close second of water melon.  Hmmmm??  I think with veg has to be cabbage, I love it cooked or raw.  Yummy..  I so love fruit and veggies.  I discovered I lked blueberries this year.  YUM!

Thank you Leslie xx

Oh My Days Indeed.

Sometimes life is Arseholes!! And then Sonny comes along!!!..

Hello everyone, sorry for the absence.  I shall explain my sorry arse.  There is exciting news (wooohoooo!!!) and OMGoshly news (boooooo!!!).  Let's start with the OMGoshly and work towards the positive, seen as I really do loathe negativity.

Remember the wrist? ( I think I am gonna name my wrist Wally from now on!)  So yes you do.  Do you remember my love, John the Physio guy??  Well I went to see him last week and predicted I might have carpal tunnel syndrome, which I researched up and its the muscles that your tendons are surrounded by, might have tightened causing the tendonitus..  (you will have to excuse my spelling, I'm really naff at medical terms).  So last week he was giving me the once over with the ultra sound machine, this week he gave my carpol muscles a really good massage and some laser treatment.  No it wasn't painful, but by the end of the night I couldn't even hold a cup.  He still thinks its carpol tunnel and if it hasn't eased any by next week, the next step is accupunture and then off to the osteopath *SIGH*.  Do you know what that means!?  It means the osteo may possibly want to put my wrist in a contraption and then I will be stuffed..  This week I have been so good resting it.  No computer, (holding the mouse hurts) minimal driving (gripping the wheel hurts) and most importantly very minimal crafting, no more that 15 minutes at a time and no more than an hour through the day.  It's tortureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Did I mention it's torture??.  If I want this blooming wrist to heal then I really will have to tow the line..  Today I am typing up my blog which means no crafting for me..  See how I sacrifice!!!

So lets get on to some good news..  I have been finishing up some projects this week.  Do you ever get that feeling where you start a million projects and put them to oneside to start another?.  Naughty yes, I am guilty!.  So I finished my quilt that I was doing with the quilt along over at Fat Quarterly.. Have a look, don't laugh and constuctive critisim is always welcome.

A close up of my colours.  I have learn from this to plan my colours better, so they stand out nicer.

The finished size.  Not very good at displaying I know, but you can get the idea.  Again I think if I had planned my colours better the quilt would look nicer.

I also had a go at stippling, which was easier than I thought, but not good for the old wrist and this took me forever to do but I completed.

I am really proud of myself, I have never done a quilt before, never ever.  So this has been added to my I can do list.  Hopefully each quilt I do I will get better and better.

A sneaky peak at a christmas presant I have finished.

I'm not saying nothing else, just incase they are looking... @( o  o )@

Finished the union jack cushions.  (oh look at the quilt sneaking in for a quick pic)

This crocheted flower is causing me to have frown lines..  I may need to get some botox.  LOL!!! By the time I have done a bit it's time to stop ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Such is life...

Lastly my lil baby Rosie was all poorly this week.  She went for her booster injections which swelled up and left her with a very sore neck.  I must say she as been extra pampered this week.

OH OH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guess what another bit of good news!  I have a job, yes I do!! I applied at the school as a mid day assistant, or dinner lady in the days with simple job titles.  So yes I went to the interview, which I must confess, I really didn't want to go, simply for the fear of another rejection, but I went and well,  CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS to me!!!... they gave me a call.  LOL!! When they called I was munching on crisps, so all Mrs Lewis must have heard was crunch crunch, slurp and a munch.  Still, I have to wait for the police checks to come through and medical checks blah blah blah..  Once they are done, I join the working people.

Tomorrow I have my first guitar lesson with Ben.  So I'm gonna get off here so I can rest up ready for tomorrow..

Have fun miss you all loads xxx

I'll be back!! (said in a terminatory way)

Shhhh!! Don't tell the Doc...

Yes I am being super naughty. I am supposed to be on complete rest for my wrist. Let me tell you it's the hardest week ever. I've been in the throws of feeling sorry for myself. I'm on strict orders to keep my wrist as still as possible, which means, no ironing (*bursts into tears with glee*), no baking (I can't hold the whisk), no crocheting, (no repeat movements), no using the mouse, (no repeat movements) no knitting (see notes before), no nose picking ( I can use the other hand though)....

So he gave me a strap on ...... OH STOP IT!!!!!!! It's a strap on wrist brace. I have to wear it all the time. Oh buggering hell it's annoying lol. Although I take it off to drive (I'm not supposed to grip anything, it's a good job I'm single *snort*) So crafty wise, I've got nothing to show you *SIGHHHHHHHHHH*

But I thought I would share this picture of my 3 favourite people in the whole world.  This was when we visited Land's End back in august.  It's totally my zone to be there.  Knowing if I go any further I would fall right off England (Don't tell the Cornish I said that they will have a fit that I said England and not Cornwall *titter titter*) Yeah it's really a great place to be.  I love it there totally!  If you haven't been, I would suggest a good pair of walking shoes and a brolly.  I could just be there forever, but you know looking out at the sea is not everyone's cuppa tea.
