Back to Normal....Almost....

Well...I was at the doctors yesterday, and he has recommended a slow return to work starting next week. The boss has suggested 2 days teaching next week (plus an INSET day) and 3 days teaching the week after, returning full time in 3 weeks. The thought of being in the classroom again after 8 weeks sick leave is frightening! I also need to get some planning done before Monday, so I'll have to get on with that tomorrow, I think...

Anyway, I started stitching Blackbird Designs' Small Token yesterday, but I'm still waiting for my order from Sewandso - should arrive tomorrow - which has one of the Crescent Colours needed in it, so it has come to a halt for the time being:

So while I'm waiting for the threads to finish Small Token and Halloween Fairy, I've started stitching Mirabilia's Mermaid of the Pearls today on Polstitches' Shimmering Seas fabric. At the moment, there isn't enough done to warrant a photo, but I'll post one later in the week.

The cats have settled in nicely. Dizzy still has the odd moment of hissing - she especially doesn't seem to like Steven - he can't go near her without her hissing or growling at him! He returns to Uni on Saturday, so he's not too bothered about it. Phoebe has a hiding place behind the chair, next to the radiator, and only comes out when she wants to eat or get attention...We bought them a toy to play with the other day - a soft toy on a string and stick, but Dizzy prefers playing with a piece of red ribbon that an order from Thread Bear was fastened with!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!

I love this design, Mater in fact I love BBD, lol.
I sure hope you get that CC soon, so you can finish it.
The new additions to your family are beautiful and I like their names.
I commented on your Halloween Fairy

Hi Lynn
Popped by as you had visited my blog, some lovely stitching I love the Halloween Fairy, its beautiful.
Are you going to frame it?
Don't be too worried about returning to your class as I had 3 months off after an op and if its any consolation first day back wasn't as bad as I thought!
