Happy Halloween...

Just a few pictures from the Halloween Fun Day up at the Riding School today.
I have some more photo's which I'll put on tomorrow.
We stayed for about three hours, we took a wheelchair with us, so that I was able to sit down and watch the displays. I was really tired by the time we left, but it was great to get out and see everyone. Hopefully next year, I can join in the fun...

Tempus Fugit...

As they say Tempus Fugit.. (Time Flies)..

Thank you for all the Birthday Wishes for Harry. Mick took this photograph of his cake. Harry had a lovely day at the riding school and then his best friend Conner came over late afternoon for tea and they spent the evening on the X-Box Live and watching DVD's..

Harry's Riding School are having another open day this Saturday for Halloween. I'm gutted that I couldn't help out this time. I'd have loved to have dressed up as a Witch.. Oh well, hopefully I will be able to participate next year.

My Super Douper Antibiotic's, seem to have cleared up the infection in my leg. But I've still got swelling on the bottom of the leg, ankle and foot. The boys have been saying that I have a Cankle. Don't you just love em...Horror Pots..

Yesterday, I had an appointment at the Doctor's for blood tests. Now I have to say at this point, I have a total aversion to Hypodermics, especially when they are coming in my direction. By the time I got into the Nurse's office, I'd already broken out in a cold sweat and my hands were disgustingly clammy. The Nurse was brilliant and managed to get my blood at the first attempt, although I cut of the blood supply in Mick's hand as I was squeezing it so much.. When I finally looked there was 4 vials of blood ready to be sent off for testing. Well done that Nurse.
Tomorrow, I have an appointment at the Hospital with the Cardiac Rehabilitation Nurse and the Physiotherapist. I've been told to expect the appointment to last over an hour, as they will see what my heart and I are capable of...

Which brings me to the Garage, the Caravan and the Barn.
After having the scare that we did. I spoke to Mick about having a major sort out of my miniatures. It worried me to think, that if anything had happened to me, Mick and the boys would have been left to sort this lot out. So as soon as I am able, I am making it a priority. Its a massive job, but I've got to get it done. As you can see every nook and cranny is filled. The miniatures that I have made and collected, which I no longer need or love will be sold. Shame there are no miniature fairs in Wales. I will then be able to concentrate on the new ideas, that are in my notebooks.

It's taken me nearly four hours to do this post, as I have to keep getting up and moving around. I meant to tell you all how I got on at the Doctors on Thursday. My leg has been really quite sore over the last few days, where the vein was taken and is swollen and in parts quite hot. I was worried that I might have a DVT (deep vein thombosis). Lucky for me, it's not, but I do have Cellulitus, (if you click on the name it will take you over for an explaination). So the Doctor has put me on some super douper, Antibiotic's to clear the infection.

Look Who's Landed...

Look who's landed over at our place.

Debie from Piskies and Poppets made a wonderful flying Witch, that was featured in the October issue of AIM. If you click on the name it will take you over to the tutorial.
Well I fell in love with "The Flying Witch" and she is officially my Get Well Present to myself.. LOL..

I also asked Debie if she could make me a kindly shop keeper for Eeylops Owl Emporium and she is wonderful. I'm thrilled to bits with her and has the most wonderful kind face. Unfortunately, the batteries on my camera ran out, so these are the only photographs that I have at the moment and they really don't do either Doll justice. Hopefully, Debie has some better ones that she will share over on her blog, until I can get some batteries.

Visual Treats For You & For Me...

Hi Everyone, I'm back.......! I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog myself, since Mick's Birthday on 21st August. Thankfully, Ben was able to keep you and me updated.
It's six weeks today, that I had my Heart Surgery...

Firstly, I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that sent Get Well Wishes and Gifts and for the support you showed to Mick, Ben & Harry. I can't express my deepest gratitude, you all helped to get us through a very worrying and scary time in our lives. Your positive vibes and prayers certainly helped us all and are still helping in my long road to recovery. I have been working my way through the lists, that dear Nikki sent and hopefully you should have all received a personnel email from me. (Please check your spam folders). I'd also like to Thank Nikki for being such a wonderful caring friend, who took it upon herself to organise my wonderful surprises and who rings to make sure I'm OK. Your a very special person Nikki.. xxxx

I still can't sit at the computer for too long, especially without the help of super strength painkillers.
I'm off to the Doctors later this morning to get him to check my leg as its quite swollen and quite hot to the touch. My chest scar is healing really well, but I've had a few dissolving stitches removed, as they don't seem to dissolve in me!..Typical..

As for the visual treats. Mick took pictures of the Sunset we had a couple of nights ago. If you click on the photo's they will pop up bigger.

The other photo's show the visual treats I've had. Dear Jodi and Richard Creager, sent me a set of their wonderful DVDs on sculpting as a Get Well Gift and a wonderful letter. Let me say I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them all and I'm determined to have a go, when I feeling better. The DVDs are fun and very informative, Jodi and Richard, really explain everything and their attention to detail has to be seen to be believed. (I just loved the little voice in the background..LOL).
I also received a wonderful book from Dearest Rosanna, showing a Bird's Eye view over her wonderful City Genova, in Italy. Rosanna, also put in little arrow's showing me where her home is located and the real Casa Rossa.
It's a beautiful visual treat...
Thank you all..

Debbie xxxxx

Mum's Blogland Surprise.... Part 2

Hi everyone its Ben.
First off Sorry for not posting this sooner but haven't had much time.
Mum received another surprise parcel from Nikki over at Witch & Wizard Miniatures on Wednesday from more of her friends out there in Blogland. Please see Nikki's blog for more pictures.
We had the box of tissues handy this time! And yes, they were needed.
Mum has again asked me to Thank you all for your wonderful gifts and Get Well Wishes.
Mum also wrote a few words and asked me to share them with you. Ben

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all so much for your wonderful gifts,cards and get well wishes. I have been so overwhelmed by every one's wonderful generous gifts. I really appreciate your kindness. Unfortunately, at the moment it is too painful for me to sit at the computer, and I'm missing reading every one's blogs. I'm looking forward to being able to sit and catch up with everyone.
My scars are healing nicely, although it still feels like someone has danced on my chest. Another two weeks before I can do anything, got to let the Sternum heal. I'm having more good days then bad, but I'm a bit up and down, like a Yo-Yo, thank goodness for maximum strength painkillers. LOL..
Hopefully I'll catch up with you all soon.
Love Debbie xxx
