Checking in to say hello!

Hello there - all is going well here: my mother is happily settled in her local hospice, with the possibility of returning home when her medication is working properly, and the dog is also responding to treatment. It's just that I'm trying to fit about two weeks' worth of activity into the next seven days, before I go to see my parents...... so that's why I'm a rather sporadic blogger at the moment.

That's a photo of me making yoghurt. I'll get around to doing the yoghurt post some of you asked for, one of these days!

Friday update: Thank you for all your kind words and advice - I wanted to assure you that I'm taking your advice seriously and have just sent in my apologies for a meeting I was due to go to tomorrow.

Don't overdo it Floss and take care :-) Glad to hear your mum is settled in, hope the medication kicks in soon. Blogged about magazine swap today :-) Thanks again for organizing it.

So glad that you Mum is going to be more comfortable, and that doggy is doing better.
Remember that you also need rest!

It is good to hear your positive news. How does your family cope when you are away?

Echoes what Serenata says don't over do it - take some time for yourself.

It is good to hear that your mom may be able to come home and that the dog is responding to the treatment. My heart is with you and you remain in my prayers as you go forward.

That is wonderful news, now perhaps you can rest awhile yourself.

Now you know what I'm going to say don't you young Floss?! Don't overdo it! Your yoghurt making sure looks interesting. I hope you find your Mum looking well when you get over there. Have a good trip if we don't speak before you go.

Sonja said...

My thoughts are with you, Floss. Take good care.

Today was the first day that I had seen my Mom since she went home last Sunday. It was funny My Dad said she's not easy to care for, I had to laugh just then Mom slipped on the stairs. then she really had something to say....she's fine though on the mend.
Oh boy I'm so glad your Mom is doing well and is getting good care and that your dog is doing well also.
You have had quite a stressful week, take care Heidi

Sarah said...

I agree with what Alex says - make sure you keep well, so you're there for your mum. Take Care. x

Hello again, Floss
Isn't it interesting about that book - that there's a style you lean towards and also a style that you know works for you and your family? I'm enjoying reading the stories about the home owners, too!
Had a good day out at the flea market today :-)
Hope all's well with you this weekend,

Saw your link at Lorrie's (Fabric, Paper, Thread) about the magazine swap. Had to come and see.... glad I did! You have an interesting and fun blog... not to mention lovely to look at too!

I'll be back for sure! In the meantime, here's wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places.
