Hello bloggy.....

Hello bloggy, so sorry haven't been to visit you for a few days BUT life has been a bit hectic of late. Hope you haven't felt too lonely without any words being put here. Do you know what bloggy, its nice to have you here. A place to come and sit and contemplate what I might write or not write. Sometimes I put very personal things down and then scrub it all out are at times a very private place. A place I come to and stare at your whiteness, pondering life and the space that I exist in within this world. It is a time of great change yet again, another chapter in lifes book, a rich tapestry being woven in all aspects, some beautiful clear colours, some soft, some harsh, some muted, some grey....I find it a lovely expression to use "the rich tapestry of life". I was bloggy going to try and tell you about the changes it seems that I haven't really worked them out myself yet. I think it is an ongoing proccess. Well briefly now DD is preggie with twin babas...did you know that at 28 weeks she will be the size of a singleton full term Mother and that she can expect to put on about 23kg in weight. I think really the process is finding the place now between Mother and daughter and Mother to Mother....I have read that the relationship can become even deeper as there is a mutual understanding and respect within the two. Thus far the journey is lovely we chat even moreso, even before her being preggars we could talk for England, shes a great friend. Then there is this beautful colourful bit of the tapestry is tinged with grey, when I think of my darling Mum. We used to be friends and chat away all the time...her mind is knowhere now with the altzheimers. I tried to explain to her about her grand daughter being pregnant but her aged eyes just stared back at me vacantly, I showed her a picture but nothing.

On a lighter note bloggy I shall wax lyrical with some very good anecdotes....might be of interest.

The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.

Tell a person they are brave and help them to become so.

Lower your voice and strengthen your argument.

Anway on the knitting front have at long last finished the shawl its the Wild Flower Shawl from Posh Yarns web site. Well decided to do it for the baby...thats before knew there were two so have started another one. Both in marion sock yarn from Peak Wool. Unfortunately as you can see there was a slight difference in the thickness of the yarn on the first shawl. So rang Peak Wool up and they sent me a replacement skein but in a different thats being used for the second shawl.

Phew talk about all over the place.

Well where do I start? First and foremost not much knitting to show you lately....finishing off the shawl etc.

Anyway what a emotional last few days we've had. Poor darling Mum was taken into hospital last Sunday with intestinal obstruction (as some of you know she has end stage altzsheimers)...through loss of fluids she was drifting in and out of consciousness...I really thought that this was it....she has had a scan and they have found a tumour which was and is causing the obstuction. They obviously cannot remove it because of her state she now weighs about 4 stone. So they are going to put a stent in as I understand it from my Father) to bypass her intestines to make her more comfortable. My Father bless him thinks this is going to make her what with going up the hospital and rallying my Dad it has been a yeuk few days.

Preggie 12 week daughter is still off work with the all day sickness BUT today she had her first scan. Me and hubby went to meet daughter and son in law....she came towards me crying with laughter and all else....."how do you feel about twins Mum" she asks. I thought she was having me on "I said your joking aren't you". "No" says son in law and shows me and hubby the pics........Oh my goodness. We haven't stopped grinning. They're are obviously two seeds were fertilised. They are due 18th December but apparently its about 38 weeks for twins.

After all that has been going on seems every cloud has a silver lining and at times life certainly moves in mysterious ways. Now I just need to be able to knit twice as fast...fortunately they are going to find out which sexes at her next 20 week scan.
She rang earlier saying to me "so glad you don't work Mum, going to need your help a lot more now" and theres me and hubby thinking of buying another Cavalier spaniel pup as company for our six year old one, don't think so now.

Now wheres the needles......... byeee for now x
