A Busy Week

This week has been a busy one here. The beginning of the week didn't start off great. I was woken by my husband telling me that Fluff had died. Little L was heartbroken as he was her little friend. She used to let him out everyday and run around the garden with him. We have another bunny, a Netherland Dwarf named Smudge but she's old now at eight and a half years old and very timid so not an ideal playmate for a lively little girl. Little L has been talking about Fluff everyday, saying how naughty or funny he was and that seems to cheer her up a bit, thinking about his antics.


We finally have our a pc back after being taken back and forth to the pc shop over the past couple of weeks to be fixed. We have ended up with a totally new pc ( new to us anyway ). The only difference between our old one and the one we have now is that ours had a better graphics card but we can easily change that at a later date.

I had my first appointment at the rheumatology clinic where I was given some really attractive splints to wear. I'm now waiting to be sent an appointment for another hospital where I will be having tests on my nerves for carpol tunnel and sent for physio again.

A new cooker also arrived this week. The oven on my old cooker gave up about a month ago ( it started just blowing cool air out ) but I wasn't in a big rush to buy a new cooker as the grill and hob were fine. I didn't realise how much I used the oven. Little L missed baking and even suggested we put the cakes under the grill. I missed Sunday roasts and my eldest boy, Shepherds Pie. I decided we couldn't cope much longer so went off cooker shopping. Our old cooker was tiny and only just fit inbetween the kitchen units so a unit had to be cut down to fit a normal size cooker in which then gave us less storage.

Right next to the kitchen door is a cupboard where we kept shoes and coats so we moved all the clutter out and gave it a make over. It had a quick coat of paint which we had in the shed and my husband used off cuts of wood from work for the shelves which I covered in oilcloth. I love my pantry/larder type cupboard, we should have changed it years ago.

So sorry to hear of Fluff's passing. It can be very hard to explain to the little people.

I hope the splints and physio prove to be a big help to you! I sometimes try to imagine what my life would be like if I couldn't crochet, knit, etc. as much as I like. Groan

I'm sorry to hear about Fluff. Your pantry looks good. I love the oil cloth. I just found your blog via Craft Gossip -- I'll try not to comment on every post. :)
