the home piccies

Afraid my postings got a bit mixed up....below this post...there is one re my darling Mum and where she is at now....but for here...some piccys which I hope you enjoy....hugs me x

The first picture is of the vest/tank sirdar top I have just finished. This one is the afterthought one...the first being on Ravelry....finished it was way to big and made me look a lovely knitty friend suggested that I machine and cut to boldy going where I have never been before I ventured glad I did.........looks a lot better...sorry for the cheesey phto to me...must let my hair grow a bit.Thought would show you a few piccys of a few of my favourite theres a cue for a my home. First off is a lovely little gas fired stove from Villager Stoves....originally we wanted a woodburner...but the expense would have been far too we settled for this little beauty....throws out nearly 4kw of heat...but never needs to be up so high...keeps the room lovely and toasty just ticking over on low.

The chair is a favourite to sit and read my mags and knitty stuff with a nice coffee and biscuit.

We have just papered one wall of our dining room in this sumptious wallpaper...I love it. We weren't quite sure first of all but the room needed warming up and its certainly done the trick. On the wall is a oh so! beautifully romantic print then my thoughtful DD brought me the porcelain couple on the left to go with it.

Last and not least is my very very lovely Rayburn...gorgeous red...oh is there a theme going on here....hehe....anyways my kitchen is Ikea red units with chrome etc.... this afternoon I have been baking a fruit loaf and some roly poly mince pies at the same time a beef casserole has been simmering away in it.

Home pics and other...

Hello...thought I would start with Mum today....ok where we are at now is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????????.....if somebody had told me how uncredibly sad...painful....heartbreaking and all adjectives that I could add....that watching someone in the end stages of altzheimers would be maybe unless I was seeing it for myself I would and could never ever comprehend. The hospital sent my darling Mum home about 16 days ago.....Dad wanted her home I had other thoughts wondering why. I spoke to the hospital and asked about her and her stomach blowing up and said that she would be back in again in a week or so and they said they would deal with that then. So she went home...Dad has been feeding her...albeit very little...and this week her stomach is blown up and hard again....the doctor called and said to Dad "oh we can look at putting a tube in the side of her stomach with a valve to release the gases.....all this intestinal abdominal catastrophes are all part of her aging process and not linked with the dementia. WHAT........why........I asked my Dad how he felt and he said that he lost his wife four years ago...I said to him rather quietly..."don't you feel enough is enough now Dad".....he didn't answer...I could sense him choking up and I quickly changed the subject...this seems to be an unspoken rule of thumb between the two of us now....he brooches questions with me I try to answer then he understandably shys away.

Anyway today wed 19th Nov...I rang him to ask how things were...well he is awaiting the doctor as apart from all the blisters and sores that are breaking out over her body.....a hugh rash is appearing over her torso......I believe her body is now breaking down rapidly now.....he said he hopes the doctors take her back into hospital....honestly what can I say to this charming delightful Father of mine...he knows what is coming...but I believe his heart and hopes go the other way. I know not. He said to me that Mum couldn't even cry if she wanted to...her brain is completely d..d...there I cannot even bring myself to type the full I await a phone call later this day to find out what is happening...he says he prefers to ring

Anyway onto tuther things. well I completed by sirdar vest and when finished it was uuurrrggghhh! too big. Apologies I will have to post piccys seems to be playing up.....will be back in the next couple of days...ttfn x
