The past week for me has literally been a rollercoaster ride!

My dear Dad fell ill last Wednesday and by the evening was having a 3 hour operation with me pacing the hospital floor and visiting him in ICU at nearly midnight.  With lots of ups and downs inbetween, today has seen him being discharged and back home with my dear Mum with almost a 100% recovery - I am so happy tonight and so very proud of him.  Today is also my DH's birthday and we have just celebrated both occasions with a Chinese meal and sticky toffee gateau - I think an increase to 20,000 steps may be in order tomorrow???

Obviously due to all this excitement 'Noah's Ark' has taken a back seat and had to come ashore!  I think any attempts at cross stitching this past week would probably have meant a giant unpicking session this week.

I want to say a very BIG thank you to my new followers, I'm so pleased that people have found my news and projects of interest and  will encourage me to put Noah's Ark afloat again soon and aim for completion . . . . . . .
