Thank you as well to all those who have left good wishes for mum.
Have been trying to get to grips with a wedding card for my nephew's wedding, finishing one of the wooden horseshoes I started ages ago - where did all that time go to? Also had a little attempt to put together some ideas for my next class - if it ever happens. I do seem to have lost my mojo a bit :-(
Anyway here is my desk / aka dining table
Anyway if you'd like to join in with the weekly peek at craft desks around the world pop over to Julia's blog and join in the fun. I will visit all who visit me and all those ending with same number as me.
So why in a daze?
My mum left hospital and I went to take care of her. Her discharge from hospital was very badly handled - won't bore you with the details. I was with her for four days/ nights. No care package, missing medication etc etc. I was up every night and eventually had to call 111 and they sent a doctor out. This was after her GP had been - ignored anything re how she was and wanted to just get her to sign a DNR form. I also made endless phone calls trying to set up carers etc etc. I handed over to my sister and after a visit by a doctor mum seemed to be improving a bit. Then she handed over to our other sister. Sadly mum went downhill - in such pain - more painkillers and then just wanted to lie down. There was another catalogue of mismanagement during Friday and early hours of Saturday. Finally my sister called 999 and she was taken to A&E, she was very poorly on admission - they diagnosed pneumonia amongst other things and my brother and I were on verge of rushing down to Somerset . She began to improve and after talking to doctors we were reassured no need to go that night so we went on Sunday, Mum was much improved but still poorly. At the moment they are carrying out various investigations. Hoping she will be transferred to a local Community Hospital , then maybe some other care until walking better and stronger. There was so much more but too much to put here. It is hard because although there are four of us - three of us don't live nearby. The journey down has been bad each time I've been - accidents and volume of traffic.
I did manage a short break in Wales ( near Aberdovey ) - prior to the weekend and mum's return to hospital. We were in a small touring caravan - it is permanently on this site - it's not ours - just hired . We were at very end. Gorgeous views. Our youngest son and family were there as well. Had a lot of fun.
I am also trying to sort out the wedding cake and gluten free cupcakes for my nephew's wedding.
My first gluten free cupcakes- a trial bake. Have done another recipe today. DH and my GD's seemed to enjoy them :-)My poor sister ( it's her son getting married) has been looking after mum and had her M.I.L.'s funeral yesterday. It never rains but what it pours.
Hoping things might start to get better.
