Visiting family,making cards my knee :-)

Not sure why really but been in two minds re blogging again - but decided it's a good way of keeping a record of what I'm doing etc etc and that's good - even if it is just me reading it :-)

Have been for physio re my knee - trying hard to keep up with my exercises. Yesterday I had MRI scan on my knee just need to wait for results. Think the steroid injection may have helped as am taking less painkillers and only slight pain and discomfort. Also managed to do some short, easy walks - very pleased.
Have been working very hard with trying to lose weight and get fitter. This has also helped with my cholestrol  and sugar levels plus my blood pressure - so result all round.

Have made a few cards - quite pleased with these

The three above were ones I made for DH to send.

The Best Wishes above was for my D.I.L. Sarah. Last week she took the first part of her Biology GCSE. She wants to do a PGCE next year and needs this. It has been very hard for her because of her Dad's illness and then his passing. I do hope she will get it - I have every faith in her.

 The thinking of you was for my brother and S.I.L. Last week they attended the funeral of my nephew's M.I.L. to be who sadly lost her fight with cancer.

The one above was for a Colour Challenge set by my Stampin' Up! 'mummy' I did it for the challenge and then sent it her as it was her birthday last week.

This last weekend we were in Yorkshire visiting my eldest son, his wife and my grandsons. My D.I.L.'s parents were also there. We had a lovely, lovely time and the weather was fabulous. On Friday evening we went to see my D.I.L. in a play ( an amateur production) it was so good and she was brilliant - she is a natural.

We took Sam to band practise on Saturday as his mummy had to take his brother to a cricket match and my son was 'on call' so although he was there he had to be able to go if called.

Below Harry ready to go to his match. Looking a lot 'cleaner' than when he returned! He had a very successful match!!!

On Sunday we went out for lunch and afterwards went up to Holme Moss  it is just stunning up there.

Below my lovely D.I.L. Carolynn and her mum.

Carolynn's dad, my son Matthew and DH.

A very rare sighting of moi!!! with D.'I.L.'s mum.

And finally rhododendron in son's garden - just thought it was beautiful :-)

Well that's it for now.  Hopefully be back soon as they say. x
