Hello.......... Sorry I've not been about much lately but I'm still working my way through a marathon of hospital tests, just two more to go over the next few days then thankfully and hopefully that will be it for a while and life will be able to get back on track again.
The other day the sky was looking like this one minute then.....
My, did we have a thunder storm and half, sorry the photo's so blurry the camera just couldn't cope with the darkness, I've never known a thunder storm where the wind got up so strong before, blowing a right hoolie and sending a shower of leaves from the trees in through all the opened windows and doors and frightening our cat Dylan so much, he hid behind the arm chair.
While this was happening I was hooked up to a 24 hour heart rate monitor, one of the many tests. Only I would have to be wired up on one of the hottest days of the year, really not a pleasant experience when you're allergic to sticky stuff on the pads, creating one cranky Clare who's mood was pretty stormy too.
So I didn't have the best weekend with a heart monitor followed by a CT scan of my Kidneys and to tell you the truth I'm really not looking forward to the echo cardiogram I'm having tomorrow either.
I've not really managed much crafting at all recently, but I have started something new for the next craft club exhibition.
I didn't manage much crochet as I was onto my next test, a 24 Blood Pressure monitor. Thankfully the results were fine, in fact my BP is low most of the time it turns out.
At least out in the garden the Roses are Stunning
and things are coming along nicely in the front border
Plus the first sweet pea has flower, I planted two mixes this year, Ballerina and Sea Form and I think this beauty must be from the later mix, so pretty but hard to capture the true colour with my camera.
Just before I go there is time for a Merlin Montage, yes Merli is celebrating his 15th Birthday today even though he still acts like a kitten most of the time. The top left picture was taken this evening while he was having a well earned birthday snooze.
