Dave is has found a way of attaching the mask to a wall and so the first artefact for the "Around the House Museum" will duly be installed :-)
On Saturday I spent the whole of the day in the loft working on items for the craft stall. I also managed to make a handmade gift for an upcoming birthday and it was quite satisfying to see the completed project. I have come to accept that making handmade items for sale will in my opinion never sustain a living wage. However this form of work not only enables me to work to my own timetable, thus allowing for my own health needs it also means I can be at home to support my family. Somethings in life such as flexibilty really are priceless.
On Friday the diabetes specialist nurse arrived at our home minus the all important laptop! This meant that she was unable to make a fully qualified decision regarding Benedict's diabetes care and I was quietly apoplectic! As a result some cursory changes were made and she is returning on Wednesday to undertake a full download of the sensor and pump information. His diabetic readings are quite worrying, yesterday he had multiple hypos throughout the day and he was having a quiet day at home! If he had been active there would have been a reason, but when these blips occur for no apparent reason it is quite baffling :-(
We missed church again this weekend, my health is just not up to it at the moment. By the time I have ferried Ben to college, taught Pip, attempted to keep on top of the house and undertake additional work hours, I'm worn out by the time Sunday rolls around. We did have a lovely visit from long standing friends in the afternoon. All the kids played together really well and Debbie and I had a quiet time knitting and chatting. And before we know it, Monday rolls around once more! All we need is some decent weather ;-)
