You'd never know we were in a recession...

I rang a domestic cleaning company an hour and a half ago. The receptionist was strangely unable to tell me exactly what services they offer, and said someone would ring me back shortly. I've just phoned again as I don't regard an hour and a half as 'shortly', and asked when I could expect a call as I have things to do. Was amazed to hear that the receptionist had 'no idea' as they were 'very busy'. So courting possible new clients isn't top of the busy list then, for a company called Time For You...

OH home from hospital.

And it's all very difficult as he can do so little - he can't even open his meds packaging! So much to do as a result of his accident, I don't know where to start. I've bathed him and towelled him down, helped him dress and fed him breakfast, fed the birds and cat, watered where necessary in the garden and greenhouse, so I guess it's time to sort me out now!

Hopefully will get some time to maybe finish the Figure8 purse, but who knows...

My first blog and first post!

Not too sure what I'm doing yet, and OH is currently undergoing surgery, so brain cells aren't on full power this morning.

Another fabulously sunny day, though, and my newest bag design is coming along nicely. I think I'll call it Figure8, for reasons that will become obvious once I post a pic!

Rain forecast further west later. Hope it doesn't reach us - I have an arduous bus-and-shank's-pony trip to the hospital this afternoon, to visit OH. Really worried about him, but should hopefully get an update when I phone the ward at lunchtime.

Time to make some phone calls and tweet !
