A Victorian Gentleman

A fine Victorian gentleman - Andrew all dressed up for his Victorian Tea Party at school.

His class has been doing the Victorians as a topic this term and last Friday they held a Tea Party in the school for parents. It was a lovely afternoon with tea and cakes. As entertainment they then sang some songs, including Daisy Daisy, and Pack up your troubles. It was great afternoon.

I have been reading a lot recently while I have been getting better.

I quite enjoyed this autobiography of Jule Walters, it was fun and easy to read. I loved her film 'Educating Rita'.

This is a book I picked up at the Keswick Convention this year (and actually read in the same year!!!). Kay Warren tells of her journey of surrender to God and her growing awareness and involvement with AIDS in Africa project. It is a very thought provoking book.

My operation went well and I am now recuperating!! My sister came down to visit and brought along Flamingo to keep me company. The Flamingo has a bag inside it which you heat in the microwave - it was great to cuddle into, especially when my shoulder was sore. It is always strange how different parts of you hurt!! I am feeling a lot better, still tender and get tired quickly, but definately on the mend.

As I have not done any scrapping this month, here are some LOs I did for my friends wedding that we went to in August.

A short break

Not that I am a very regular blogger anyway but I will need to take a short break from blogging as I go into hospital tomorrow for an operation. I have gall stones which are very bothersome and painful at times!, so the gall bladder is coming out tomorrow - keyhole and day surgery!!! So hopefully it will not be too long before I am back. I have lots of knitting and books and DVDs lined up for the next couple of weeks.

Also I treated myself last week and have bought an ipod Touch so I can listen to music wherever I am. Having trouble at the moment keeping the boys away from it and reminding them that it is MINE and not theirs! but they will learn.

Be back soon.
