Today was stock up day, have my op in a couple of weeks so need to make sure I've got the basics in. So off to craft shop, I was tempted by some stamps, but stuck to the list, sort of, only veered away in getting the washables, seen them on CnC, and was curious. On the way out I looked round the Christmas display in the garden centre, and spotted some owls... well I couldn't resist, I'm a sucker for owls, so bought the little one.
I then inked a piece of card using Tim Holtz distress inks, and embossed it with a sizzix folder.
Worrying time with mum, she got her new bank card today, good thing I was here as she was confused thinking they'd sent her a credit card and was all set to cut it up. Found her sitting in her bedroom when I came back from shopping, she was giving herself a pep talk, she's still managing to dress herself, just, she needs help with her shoes and socks. Walking is now very difficult for her, a wheelchair isn't an option as I can't push her as she is just too heavy. We've considered the electric scooter, I'm not sure she'd cope with it very well, or if she bother using it. She's at the stage where anything unfamiliar frightens her, nor is she able to taken in instructions, I've shown her umpteen times how to use the new phone but she still gets confused, the confusion then causes anger and so it becomes a vicious circle. She was insisting that she could look after herself whilst I was in hospital, it took some convincing for her to agree that she needed someone here with her.
Bum side to the week, I lost my gold chain, I've worn it round my neck for the last 20 odd years, only once has it ever come undone! I've searched the flat but no sign of it, can only assume that it came loose when I was out. Really upset about it, and its the only thing of value I have. I know in the grand scheme of things it is a minor thing, but I still feel upset.
All for now folks.
