What You Doing Wednesday Week 110

Good Morning everyone.
I hope your week is going well.

This last week has been amazing!
Hubby and his brother finished building the shed,
Then it was onto the task of filling it again and sorting out loads of stuff for the skip.

Little Red turned EIGHT!
Wow time is just flying by so quickly.



He got the most amazing presents and some money which he has spent already :-).
He got just about everything he wanted and a whole lot more.

 On the Sunday we had a birthday party at his Nana's.
His Nana made him this amazing birthday cake.
Everyone loved it.

I made loads of things for his party bags.

Little Red also got some new glasses. 
They weren't cheap but we caved in and let him get the Manchester United Football Club (Soccer)
glasses. He has worn his glasses twice as much since he picked them up.
If you live in the UK and your child needs glasses I would highly recommend
I cannot recommend them highly enough.
The difference in the service is huge!!!!
We took Little Red to a standard opticians and was told
he had 20/20 vision and wouldn't need glasses.
He does need glasses and he also needs a axis change + he has Irlen syndrome.

Very strangely on Monday he started with spots.
He was already take his allergy medicine so it doesn't look like
it's a reaction to anything.
He had a rash and a couple of spots on his stomach as well but they
haven't spread anywhere else.
They haven't changed and are still there so we are going to keep an eye on him.
I think it might be a reaction to a virus.

I'm finally decreasing on my gran's shawl.
I dropped a few stitches so I had to learn how to fix
them before I could carry on.

This is a biggy for me!
Since my conditions got worse I haven't designed anything.
There has been a bit of a block.
I was awake at 3am this morning with the pain
so I decided to come up with something to design.
I wanted something really easy so that it wasn't too much for me.
I decided on a beehive tea cosy.

Do you like the stitch marker.
My mum made some for me. I put them on these
safety pins so that I can use them for both
knitting and crocheting.

Aren't they beautiful!!!
I love them.
My mum is so talented.

It's been a hectic week and it's nice to stop and breathe!
The weather has changed and is cooling down.
It's nice because it was sooo hot and humid 
but I must admit I'm looking forward to seeing the sun again.
It's our fault it changed.
We ordered a new paddling pool and a trampoline.
We want Ryan to stay fit and healthy,
this is difficult with me being limited to what I can do.
So we have everything here so he can have as much fun
as possible and use up all that energy.

I'm still reading Dan Brown's Inferno.
I'm enjoying the book but the story really gets you thinking.
It's a scary thought and with it using reality as evidence
it makes you think even more.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
It doesn't have to be crochet, anything you are making
is perfect.
Please add the pin to your post & check out a couple
of other people that are sharing their work
