I have done most things inside the house this past week as it's been so darn cold outside!
On Saturday we had Norah for the day and had such fun with her. She is quite the little character and a real chatterbox.
Just like Motherhood for the first time, nothing could have prepared me for the wonderful feelings of being a grandparent. The sheer joy I feel when she comes into the house and runs for me with open arms is something I can't even begin to describe! We love her to pieces.
She loves her books and has her favourites. When we came in the house, she ran straight to our reading chair and got out "Peepo" and started on it before I had even taken off my coat!
Her Daddy was exactly the same as a child and loved to read. I taught him to read with Ladybird books by the time he was four and he loves to read to this day!
The smile that melts us every time!
When we get out the camera and tell her to smile, this is the face we get! Sorry, if I'm sounding like a doting grandmother, but that's exactly what I am so really no appologies there then!
I have had some discomfort in my right arm since last summer. I first noticed it in July when we were at the airport and it hurt to pull my luggage, so I had to push it instead. I just didn't repeat the movement and thought little of it. But since then it has increased in intensity and it is a lot more uncomfortable to do more things. After a normal ultrasond and x-ray, I have been told that the muscles are fine, but it is in the nerves. On Monday I went to meet the physiotherapist who was wonderful. She did some accupunture and gave me some very small exercises to do as she doesn't want to aggrevate it for fear it will turn to frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis). I don't want that as it is very acute and chronic pain and can last for up to two years! So I am doing what she has asked and limiting my activities to below shoulder level. It's amazing how many things that prevents. I can't even drive my car right now as it has a standard transmission and the movement of shifting is painful. Luckily Wendell's car is automatic so I can use that. One thing I CAN still do is sew, so I have been chain piecing my quilt which I showed the fabric for in the last post. There a lot of sqaures here, but it will move quickly.
I bought this cart from Ikea which I have had my eye on for some time. It's the perfect hold all for my sewing tools.
Well, must be off and do some sewing!
