|Mums Siblings Together Bee Quilt (to get a post of its own very soon!)|
Am sitting happily with my metaphorical pompoms waving, watching mum (finally) quilt her siblings together quilt. Glad the sibling wont hear the language.... Mum is more like me when she quilts that she'd admit methinks.... I have completed 2 quilt tops this month, but unlike mum I admit defeat right away and am sending them to the lovely Ms Strawberry Patch. No, of course I didnt remember to take a photo of the tops first. I cant remember what I'm doing in the time it takes to leave a room these days.
|We made a quilt with these. Lots of these. I sewed and mum cut. I got the better deal!!!|
People, namely you lovely lovely bloggy people, have asked a lot how I am doing. I've been a bit non-committal and not really answered properly. On the one hand, I'm with my parents - all is well with the universe when I'm nearer them. I have my wonderful, bendylugged beautiful wee Molly moo, whom I could not possibly love more. Seriously, I well up and greet everytime I think just how much I love her, its unquantifiable. She gets so many kisses, I swear the day she learns to say "mama" will be ever so immediately followed by "gerrroff!"
On the other hand. There's been some annoying wee things wrong. Infections, wounds, etc. Lots of big OUCH. Nothing at all serious though. But with Narcolepsy, pain means exhaustion. Pain means feeling shattered and miserable. Bit sucky. The extra weight I gained through pregnancy is not shifting cos I cant exercise and its taking its toll on my hip very badly. As is carrying a 7.16kg "wee" baby! So I'm getting less and less mobile, with no real medical help available, which is really upsetting me too. I'm sitting here in my maternity jeans cos none of my pre pregnancy jeans fit and I refuse to buy more clothes. I'm also wearing a nursing bra and nursing tshirt. Not that anybody wants or needs easy access to these boobies. I wasnt able to breast feed. But I'd spent over £180 on nursing clothes! Might as well wear them... Oh. And my hair is falling out. Apparently its quite normal for 50% of women to start losing their hair after pregnancy. The things you learn after the fact.... So, I try not to freak out at handfuls of hair coming out every time I brush, wash or just bloody touch my hair. I am such an attractive bundle right now...

Oh you have no idea how many times I've edited all that for TMI....

For the quilting, I'm thinking a big heart spiral maybe? Well shucks I'm just full of the love these days!
