False alarm...

Thanks for the best wishes, mostly in e-mail - thankfully Jay is fine now - it is apparently "only" gallstones, although his GP will be seeing him soon. He probably won't be recognised, as he hardly ever goes! Does he know where the surgery is?

Now one of the boys is ill and has had to stay off nursery, so that's today's plans out of the window. S is home for half term though, so I will still have to help him with his scale model of a Roman fort! Do you think he would like to make it in fabric? No I don't think so either.

Moribund Valentine

So sorry that this blog has been dormant for a while, but nothing has been achieved in the sewing room, as I have been slaving over a PhD instead. Guess what I would rather be doing? Sadly, however, it will not keep body and soul together (only soul).
Feeling really down now too, as my partner has just been taken to hospital in an ambulance. The paramedics said it wasn't cardiac, but that he needed "the once over". It is nearly midnight here, and I won't have news for another hour. I expect it is my fault for making too rich a meal for Valentine's Day, although it wasn't anything particularly extravagent. The boat is a model made some years ago by my partner. He's who I'm thinking of right now, so his handiwork should be honoured today, not mine!
