I wasn't going to post tonight, but when I came home after a long day and saw all your wonderful comments, I really wanted to.
The TV buying was a brilliant success and we installed it in Mum's room and organised for Sky TV to be installed as well. Settled Mum down with the remote and an afternoon of programmes and came home , only to be phoned by the staff at her rest home to say that she had had a nasty fall in the bathroom and wanted me asap.
Today has been a day of visiting Doctors, x ray dept. and finally tonight A and E at our local hospital to have her elbow put in plaster. She has to be seen again on Monday by the orthopaedic surgeon to talk about surgery for her left arm.
Anyway.............aside from all this personal stuff,I took my latest copy of Interweave knits with me and a ball of wool and my four trusty little bamboo needles.I thought I would have a go at the socks knitted from the toe up...see I made a start
