When I made my mini tin, shown on last Tuesday's post, I played around with other ideas to enclose inside. This was one I rejected but I decided to finish it today as, quite by accident, it turned into a novel little book. It is only approx 2 x 1.5 inches in size but is so cute as the pages overlap and flip alternately as it opens. I decided it was too fiddly to go inside a tin so opted for the concertina book but I'm glad I played around with this one and will have another go at developing it further.
We have had so many get well messages since DH had his operation last Wednesday and he has asked me to thank everyone for all the kind thoughts received.
I am pleased to report that the keyhole surgery to remove his gallbladder last Wedesday was successful, and recovery was really quick, and when he came home the next day he enjoyed a good dinner then slept the night solidly! I write this to reassure anyone who might have to undergo the same procedure in the future. He felt the benefits of the operation immediately, post op discomfort was manageable and not too much pain.
Whilst the country suffers snow and severely cold weather we have been fortunate enough today to take a post op constitutional walk, for the patient, in our local Croxteth Hall Park in pleasant sunshine!
Blogging buddy Elizabeth, far North of me in Scotland, reported last week that her DH went walking to see their local show of snowdrops and was so disappointed that there were none to be seen as they were all finished after flowering early. Aaaah!
Well NOT HERE!!! I didn't want to miss them whilst I am in Germany next week, and panicked to read Elizabeth's post so we hotfooted to see them here........ and our's are not yet in full bloom. I'll just have to go again when I return.
Don't miss me waving at all those little buds waiting for me!
I know I'm crazy but I thought this thawing puddle looked like a weather map of England!
I collected some berries and greenery in the park to make an ice sculpture, after the inspiration from DD, and it's outside, but at 5.5C at 7pm here I may have to wait a while!!
