Here is one from earlier in the day, on the footpath near our house.
And one of Timmy sheltering from the heat
The gala we went to was great and we had a nice time in the sun and wandering around the fair and stalls. We managed not to buy too many things, just a jar of chutney from Jan at Carr Houses, she makes the most amazing jams and lemon curd too, I love the apricot and ameretto jam. Got an apron for Emily from Maggy at Cotton Bobbins, she makes great cushions, bags and apron in gorgeous fabric. I have one of the cushions in my bedroom in my new chair that I have got for my birthday, even though its not my birthday yet!
This is another of Maggy's cushions, which I have not bought, but I am into owls at the moment so love this. I have been looking at owl things whilst not feeling up to anything else and posting them on Pinterest, total waste of time really, but keeps me amused when my brain can't do more. Think these are my favourites embossed owl and owls
and a bag
A kit to make a backpack for a child
I need to stop now as feeling sick and shaky and my pain is getting worse, perhaps its time to admit defeat for the day and get some rest before I have to collect Emily, which will come round very quickly. Once my carer has been to wash my hair and I have had something to eat there is only time to rest. I do feel guilty as I have sent Emily to school with a cold, but I know she will be ok, I do feel mean for sending her though, especially when my main reason is that I have not got the energy to have her at home. I also know that once she is with her friends she will feel much better and that school will notify me if she is unwell, but I am sure she will give me a guilt trip once she gets home.
