They say things come in 3's

Good Evening my crafty friends,
I must firstly apologise for being a rubbish blogger, in my mind I want to post & comment but physically I just can't find it in me
 I never got back as promised with my news yesterday as I slept most of the day, as I have done most days. I really don't know why I'm feeling so tired and when I am awake have no energy to do anything.

Anyway I am now here to let you know my news which I think might be a bit of a shock as I've not mentioned it previously.
Last Monday I had some good news. After being awake all night waiting the phone call finally came just after 7.00am to let me know that my Son & his partner Gemma were the proud parents at last. I say at last because the expected date was 27.1.14 making the birth 14 days late.

Harvey James was born at 6.55 am  weighing 6 lb 15 oz.
Isn't he a cutie!

Later the same day I went to the hospital convinced my treatment wouldn't happen, however it did. So that means I've had all 6 cycles that were prescribed. Just 15 days Radiotherapy to go then I can think about getting back to work & my normal routine. Plus lots of cuddles!!!!

So that was 2 bits of good news. But it didn't stop there.

When I got home the post had arrived and on opening it I found a cheque for nearly £140. The letter said that it was a refund for an over  payment I had made at some point, still not sure what for but I'm not complaining just planning my purchase!!!!

Have a good evening
