Hello friends

This past week has gone so fast and thee weather has changed so dramatically.

Last Wednesday L turned 15.  She is growing up into a confident young lady who thinks all boys are a waste of space, stupid and immature (wonder how long that will last). She's doing very well in school and achieving excellent grades. She also has lots of fun and crazy moments with her friends and has no time for the airheads (as she calls them) in school. Over half term there will be a trip to Madam Toussauds, in Blackpool with 3 friends, followed by hm pizza and hm cake for tea and then a sleep over (with midnight snacks)

Some famous names L shares her birthday with

King Henry III
Jimmy Carter
Julie Andrews
Keith Duffy
Harry Hill

L was in a Hip Hop dance competition, on Saturday, at the Winter Gardens. She danced the best she has ever danced before and with such enthusiasm but still didn't win anything. It's hard to know what the judges are looking for. One of the judges is a friend of L's dance teacher and spent one Saturday afternoon with the class going over the set solo routine, that she had choreographed for the competition, and still nothing for any of the girls. 

Today I have two meetings, one regarding guides and finding someone to teach the guides first aid for a badge and the other is at a local craft shop who are making twiddle muffs and want me to be an ambassador for them and help distribute their muffs like I'm doing for the library's craft group. The craft shop is lovely and they also have a unit opposite where they teach different crafts. This is the link to the shop and blog. They have just started stocking stylecraft yarns, lots of fabric and so much more in their tiny shop.

And then I have a hospital appointment on my eye to see how it is improving or not.

I need to get a wriggle on and get my breakfast and get myself ready

See you soon

  1. I have just started a twiddle muff for a dear friend and contemporary who has dementia. I will leave it around for her to "steal". I hope it will help in some way as she was such an active woman and it is difficult for her husband to direct her to harmless activities nowadays. Thank you for the idea

    1. Hi Gill. When I first mentioned twiddle muff to my dad he thought I was nuts but since giving it to mum at Christmas he says it's been a god send.
      Put as much interesting twiddles on as you can because by the time the patient gets back round to the beginning it's possible they have forgotten things and start again.
      Best of luck to your friends as dementia is so cruel.
