Yesterday the wool for my ruffle scarf which I bought on e bay turned up and I had great fun starting to knit it. I hadn't been sure how much wool i would need and bought 4 balls. Turns out I probably only need one. I think a lot of people might receive ruffle scarves this year.
Also last night I phoned my parents to wish my dad a happy birthday. Mum was glad that I had phoned as the day before dad had been told by the doctor that he probably only has months to live. We have realised that his time here is limited but to have it said has been tough. He is an abusive bully who has made all of our lives hard but still I find myself in tears today. We have friends staying and I have been asked to do extra at school later this day so I pull myself together and keep going but today I can't find the silver lining.
Last week I finished a LO of a visit to my parents last year, it's on my craft blog.
