What A Night !!

After having trouble over the last couple of days to get anything to download in webshots I eventually succeeded earlier this evening and then as if in complete shock the whole internet went down. It was very frustrating. I eventually went to bed feeling really tired and then wham as soon as my head hit the pillow I was wide awake - ahhhhhhhhhhhhh why does that happen. I tossed and turned trying to get comfy and settle but in the end admitted defeat and got up again.

Hurray - the internet is back on. Off to webshots so I could load a photo into S&S forum and would you believe it - Webshots have closed down while they back up their system.


Oh well if thats the worst life throws at me then I think I can cope.


I managed to finish the E in my EMS Garden Alphabet and got a couple of little bees and a butterfly done but doing them was a good excuse for not working on the border. I think next week I will have to bite the bullet and tackle some of that border but those ivy leaves are oh so boring.
I got a phone call from our doctors tonight and the hospital have contacted them so I have to go for a liver function test in the morning. Not sure but think it is only a matter of a blood test so it shouldnt take too long. Two weeks today we are off on hols and when I get back I have an appointment for a pre-op assessment so hopefully this gallbladder thing will all be sorted pretty soon.
I have been working on Taj Mahal Mandala Garden all day and really feel like I have made progress this time. No picture as yet because I intend doing it tomorrow and Saturday if I get chance to stitch, though I think stitching will be a strictly evening affair as Oscar is coming for the weekend. They have forcast snow and he is getting really excited about it but I have warned him that he will only be throwing snowballs at Grandpa as Granny will be by the fire with her stitching if the snow comes. I hate the cold and there is no way I will be venturing outside even for my beloved Grandson.
Thank you for all your lovely comments, a couple of people have asked me about the EMS 2008 Challenge so hope this might be of help to anyone interested.

I experienced that with uploading to google too and i know how frustrating it is. Hope you have a good rest though afterwards.
The alphabets are progressing beautifully.

Goodluck with the doctor's appointment today.

This is just lovely stitching. Did it snow? It would be nice to be cool or even cold, I am so sick of the heat.
