My health is not good, various things but mainly the MS is affecting my legs. My right hand has been bad for a while but I can manage with it but my legs are a different matter so am on a high dose of steroids for 5 days. They make me quite dizzy and leave me feeling even more drained than usual. Today is only day two so I thought I'd just post up before I end up in bed straight from work each night. I'm hoping not to take time off as I will have completed the course by Sunday so will only have the coming off symptoms next week.
I'm hoping to be able to still stitch (but the dizziness does make the holes move around LOL) so I may have some finishes to show next week.
Take care everyone - be back soon

I have received some more ornaments - they are all so lovely, very beautiful stitching. They were sent by Christine, Barb, Chris and my mum (photos are in that order) Thanks ladies they are fabulous -this tree is going to look so good.
I have been to the hospital again today - to see the Occupational Therapist for some help with my right hand and arm. It's been numb for a long time due to the MS and I rely a lot on my eyes to see what my hand is doing. Anyway I have to see her for 6 weeks and do some exercises at home. I also rang the MS Nurse this week as my right leg has been playing up - it's getting to the point where I could chop my right side off LOL. It does slow me down when the MS rears its head which is why I haven't been online much this week. Hopefully things will improve.
I made this card for Helen who left school this week for a new life in the Isle of Wight. It is the first time I've done decoupage. I had to do a little bit then rest as it is quite fiddly and difficult for my hand but I'm really pleased with it.
Thanks to everyone for helping with the Christmas Tree and for reading my blog.

I have been up the (very cold) attic and found all the ornaments I already have. With those and the lovely new ones I have received I now have 26 - thanks to everyone who has helped and I know some more have been pledged. I am intending to stitch a few more too.
This morning was a sombre yet proud day in my Scouting calendar as we take part in the towns Remembrance Parade. It was very windy which made it cold but the morning stayed dry and the sun shone. So many wreaths were laid and my heart goes out to all who have suffered for our country, and for the many many who have given their lives. God bless.
Thanks to everyone for reading my blog and for taking the time to add a comment.
