This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

Colour Swap Sent and Received by Partner...arm update, and a special Visitor!!!

At the start of this year I entered into a 'Colour Swap' hosted by Maree...
easy peasy I thought...then having entered I broke my arm!!!

Just send something handmade...something to eat...a fat quarter and some thread...
My Partner was Dawnfire...and her favourite colour is purple!!!


I wasn't able to send something that I had handmade so I sent this fabric together with a ribbon and a button...


Purple fat quarters...thread...and some little sweets in a tin with a compact mirror...
Thank you so much Dawnfire for your patience...this swap gift was a little late due to the circumstances!!!

Thank you so much Maree for organizing this fun Swap!!!

And back to my arm...it's not healing as fast as it should be...
then again it was broken in 2 places...
more xrays in 4 weeks...
still have to take it easy...

Physiotherapy has started...I can lift no heavier than 2L milk...
and I have exercises to do to get the arm/shoulder moving again...
AND it can take up to 12 months to get full function happening again...Yipes!!!



Couldn't resist this pic...my little Grand daughter Lidija sitting with me...(me looking a bit out of it I think) barely 2 and a 1/2 and she put her big fluffy toy "Iggle Piggle 'on my arm to make it better!!!
How sweet...that was is enough to bring tears to my eyes!!!
I love how she did that just by instinct...perhaps there's a Healer in there!!!


And this little Munchkin Ryan...Lidija's Brother is coming to stay here for a week during the holidays...
how much fun this is going to be...as an added bonus Mr Armchair will still be home caring...
but I am starting to slowly do stuff...

 Ryan's t-shirt says 'Sveiks'...which is a greeting in Latvian,
like g'day...hello...how are you

Looking forward to seeing you Buddy...

Enjoy the time with sweet little Lidija. How sweet seeing her snuggled up to you. I must say you do look like you need a swim on that beautiful beach - Hugs Nat

What a sweetheart little Lidija is! She knows how to make her grandmother feel so much better! What a wonder child.
And her big brother will has such a beautiful smile! You are blessed, Dzintra.
Hope your arm is soon able to carry 3 lt of milk ;o)

Oh my sweet Dzintra, I am so sorry that you are still not feeling completely healed, but I guess a break in TWO places will take more time than expected. YOU LOOK WONDERFUL in pink...and your grandchildren are precious!!!! I hope our SEA AIR on our romp through the month will bring a smile to your face. Love much, ANita

Nezzy said...

Sweetie, I hate to hear your arm is healin' slower than anticipated. I bet that Iggle Piggle will work magic and speed things up.

Your little nurse is just as precious as her big brother. What a blessing they must be.

Great swap!!!

Have a blessed and beautiful day and girl...heal up!!!

Terry said...

Iggle Piggle and ice packs are an important part of recovery. It will heal and strengthen.

Have a good next week. Sleep a lot when you can.
