A Brief Update

I just thought I would give you a brief update to explain my blogging absence of late.

To say that life has thrown my family curve balls since Christmas is a bit of an understatement. To cut a long story short both my Aunt and Uncle were taken into hospital over Christmas. My Aunt is very seriously ill and although my Uncle was discharged a few days ago he is now back in hospital although hopefully not for long. My Aunt's sister also ended up in hospital just after Christmas as well so my time has been taken up with visiting, providing transport etc.

I also have to go into Southampton Hospital today for an eye operation to repair a macular hole so I will be unable to drive for a few weeks but I am hoping that I will be able to see to crochet before too long. I have also downloaded four books from Audible so hopefully that will keep me sane as I have to lie face down for a few days which I am dreading.

I will leave you with a photo of the Moorland Blanket CAL that I am currently working on. This has been designed by the very talented Lucy from Attic24. I have completed week 1 but obviously this will have to be put on hold for a little while but I hope to catch up as soon as I am able. I am also crocheting a cot blanket for a work colleague which I had hoped to complete over the Christmas holiday but with feeling poorly from a flu type cold and with all the family issues it has taken a back seat. Hopefully I will be able to complete that one very soon.

Hopefully I will be back in Blogland before too long. Have a great weekend.
