Big Pants

It's time for me to put on my big girl panties and head back to the hospital. John has had his younger sister and her husband with him this week. We haven't seen them in at least 15 years. Its great that they came, I know he is touched.
I have been crafting my little heart out, it's great therapy for me! Here are some steampunk angel brooches I made to give away in secret Santas.

I xmased up a zetti image I had too!

A Great Week

This week John was allowed HOME yes HOME to OUR house with me, it has been WONDERFUL!

My Brother (Peter) was discharged from hospital to my sisters' place in Brisbane! A big step forward.

Hopefully he will be able to come up here and get his dog, Lara, soon. She misses him!

Have a great day!

When John was out of hospital last week we considered a walk up the hill a couple of blocks to the Markets. He was really weak and I am fat with a bad knee,so we canned the idea because  the thought of the two of us halfway up the hill fighting over the walker was just too much! LOL!
After he had to go back in it was up to me to take his computer in the next day! He carries it in a back pack with some other VERY HEAVY stuff( unknown to me he had adjusted the straps to minimum as he only ever carries it). Because I have a sore knee I decided to wear it on my back. I called a cab and went to put it on when he blew the horn to let me know he had arrived.  It was so heavy it knocked me on my back and tied my arms to my sides which was made worse by me panicking.There I was stuck on my back waving my arms and legs madly while the taxi blew its horn!
It would have been some sight! LOL!
You can see the poor man is in good hands! LOL!
