In the HEART of the mountains

Hard to play down the reason for my month's leave from blogging. Four Saturdays ago, I came over all 'funny' in Lidl, of all places, and my husband decided we'd better stop off at casualty. I was sure they would say ' silly woman' after all it was blistering hot and the supermarket was over air conditioned, but instead I was whisked straight into the operating theatre where a blocked vein was burst open and a split vein stuck back together with 5 stands.

All very drammatic, I felt fine before and fine now. Am a bit pissed off over wasting 50 years NOT smoking NOT drinking NOT owning a chip pan and going to the gym when I could have been leaving a slovenly lazy life. Why me? one of life's little mysteries.

But what a treat. Ten days rehabilitation in a hospital in the mountains. Take a look at that view from the ward.
And although walking has been forced to take a back seat, the wool side couldn't have been better. I managed to make these two cardis whilst watching the last ten days of the Tour de France. What more could a girl ask for?
Thanks to all you lovely people who sent me cards and visited. Yesterday's check up was near perfect all I have to do is get back in those walking boots now.

Oh, my dear friend! What an experience. So glad you have recovered well and those cardigans look amazing on you. xx

Those cardi's are beautiful, but more beautifu is the fact that you got a good report from the docs.

Oh my....glad you've recovered well. Your cardis are lovely, and at least you got a good rest and had lots of knitting time.

It must have been a very frightening experience, but its over now, and I must say you look a picture of health in your pics.

glad to hear that you're feeling better after the op, and it's nice to see that you got two fab cardis out of the experience.
