My computer packed in on me twice. I had to change the hard drive on it. Luckily all my files were saved. My new sewing machine packed in on me too and it took forever to get the engineer to come and fix it which meant one of the bags that I was testing had to be put on hold and I had to turn down testing Christine's Dawn to Dust backpack but she kindly sent me the pattern anyway so that's on my list. Make sure you check it out Christine's blog where you can see her backpack along with the gorgeous ones made by her testers.
To top everything off I went late for my routine check up at the gynecologist and three lumps were found in my left breast. My doctors surgery is 5 hours away so I had a couple of trips there plus three other doctors. Luckily after seeing three I came across a fourth who was brilliant and said a biopsy wouldn't be necessary they were cysts which is quite common at my age. I won't bore you with the details of what I went through trying to get appointments with doctors and getting tests done but I do want to make a point of stressing how important it is that we all get checked regularly.
We all have busy lives, children, school runs, work, running a home and of course our hobbies, It's all time consuming and we always seem to put others first. I'd left my routine visit for two years. Please DON'T do the same as I did. I was lucky but someone else may not be and it would be tragic if the worst happened because you couldn't make time for yourself. Nothing is more important than your health. So if you're overdue for your check up DO IT NOW!!!!!!!
As for sewing I did manage to get some projects done. It's the best way to keep my mind off things. The first post after this one will be something I have been keeping very quiet since before Christmas. Don't miss the next post to find out what it is.
Thanks to everyone who contacted me while I was away. It's so touching to know that people I have never met are concerned.
