Oh My Now What Have I Done?
Weather broke last night so I am back to the joys of a wet Magnus headbutting me in the middle of the night and going out just so he gets wet enough to require drying when he comes in during the day - I think I'll take a Magnus towel to bed with me tonight:)

Have got the first of Kate's cotton mitts knitted and am nearly finished the rib on the other one. Have pulled out the rabbit scissorkeep set which I started well before I got ill and am doing a tiny bit of that every day (over one on 40 count is only for good daylight working) and am also sewing a small sweetbag which I haven't decided what to do with when finished yet, but it is cross stitch, blackwork and satin stitch and will look late period when compleyed and is on 28 count so no eye strain.

Really missing Richard now - not long til Saturday though. Oncologist tomorrow for result of scan and probably chemo on Wednesday. Mostly eating OK - couple of glitches but at least the diet has expanded well past just yoghurt and lemonade.

Mum has got into doing cross stitch, she bought me the grey cat on a branch and has just finished it. It was a bit hard for her first attempt.
She's now working her way through the cross stitches I have amassed over the years (including the one of the big cats you bought me) She's doing a pair of Amerindians which are long and narrow and will look splendid in my lounge.

I am encouraging her, she knits like a demon, it's her only hobby, apart from reading about 8 Mills and Boon a month. I have so many lovely, lovely hand knitted jumpers and coats but I really do have enough, I just can't stop her knitting them!

So the cross stitch is another thing to occupy her, I was stunned by how fast she picked it up, and that her eyesight is still good enough at 77 to do such fine work.

FF, who foresees bifocals in her own future real soon now

I just had to vacuum the bed, because Mooncat decided to go and roll in the grass clippings from next door's lawn and they were all lovely and wet...
