I’ve been frantically busy this week, and I am pleased to say I gave myself a kick up the backside and got out my crochet hooks again. I was planning on doing a craft fair this weekend with my mate Kez. She makes cards that are properly cute, and I have been crocheting little flowers to make Mothers Day cards. We were going to go and have a jolly rollicking good time selling our wares at a church in town. About as rollicking as you can get at a craft fair in a church, anyway.
But then I got a call from the hospital. They have rescheduled Roo’s grommets insertion and adenoidectomy for this weekend, so I now can’t go. Gutted!
(Actually, it was a funny old thing. I was talking to my sister on the phone, and having a bit of a moan about how it’s been almost two weeks since they cancelled the surgery last time, and that I had a weird feeling it just wasn’t going to happen at all now.
“Phone them up” she goaded, “Call them out! This is your child’s health we are talking about”. Perhaps making a slight mountain out of what is, essentially, a teeny tiny molehill in the grand scheme of things. It’s all very minor stuff.
Not ten minutes later my mobile started to ring and, would you believe me if I told you it was the admissions team at the ENT department, calling with a new date for the surgery?
Well, it was. Someone’s ears were burning.
So, any plans we had have swiftly gone out of the window, and there is a lot of talk of magic cream in our house at the moment.)
Anyway, I am planning on giving Kez a bunch of cards to sell on my behalf at the fair, and, of course they are available on Folksy RIGHT NOW! I have many many more than five in stock, but that’s the maximum number Folksy would let me put in.
So, all you lovely mums, you’d all love mothers day cards crocheted by my fair hand, right? It’s something a little different. And pretty. The chances are your own mums would like them, too.
