4 down 8 to go

On LK Halloween Rules...

I'm putting this aside for now as I really want to stitch more Christmas
Ornaments, my stitching time as dramatically reduced, so any time I get now I want to work on those.

Also all my blood work and blood pressure tests came Back..and all good..
My mammogram has been cancelled due to machine breakdown, so that is another month away.
But now I have Seb who may need a visit to the X-ray machine..he hurt his wrist yesterday at soccer, doctor thinks its a very bad sprain and to watch it, if no better in a week..X-ray time...

Other than that we are all great...

My favorite stitchy spot....

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop
Would be the chair in the family room.... I have my stash bag beside it. On a small side table sits.. - my ORTS jar..which by the way is a plastic tub which held fairy floss from Disneyland, now my little bits of thread no longer needed. - my gingher scissors that my 3 favorite BFF 's have too with the minnie mouse fob on them. - My smelly Smiggles high lighter, - small container with bits and bobs in it, - my book I'm reading ..which I think has a layer of dust as I haven't touched it in a long time. - and if course my current stitching project... LK Halloween rules.. And sometimes at night my favourite pink mug filled with a hot milo... Visit all the blogs in this round of the Stitching the Night Away Stitching Blogger Blog Hop:

Old Melbourne Gaol

Today was the last day of the school holidays
I had the day off
so off we went to Melbourne
after the blood pressure monitor was taken off
and then a blood test.
where the nurse informed me
I have hard to find veins -
yes they were in hiding from the needle
and I'm a slow bleeder..
she joked she could have made a coffee
by time I filled 3 vials...

We went as Seb has been wanting
 to go see the
Old Melbourne Gaol for  while.

so after morning tea at Laurent ..think I have
made a mistake of taking the kids to my
favourite fab 4 haunt

we headed to the Gaol..

It felt really eerie and cold inside...

this is the mens holding cell
where they kept them before
being charged, up to 10
men could be in 1 cell at a time..
think that toilet has seen better days...

the padded cell and door....
the padded floor has now been replaced
with boards, still not a nice feeling
to be in there..

the ladies outdoor area,
they had 2 cells and spent
their outdoor time in here..
there was no roof to protect them from the

now the mug shoots..
hopefully these will be the only ones ever
and now we can see how how tall they both are..Seb's not that far off Mad
and no way was I standing there as Mad is already slightly
yes only slightly taller than me..

After that off to the Vic market,
then to Victoria harbour
at docklands..then  home

Doctors visits....getting older...and the joys of being female..

I detest them and it...

Went 2 weeks ago for the full "women's" checkup...lucky me now gets to wear a 24 hr blood pressure monitor... Because my first reading was too low, 2nd time i got a little got higher, 3rd was too high...

So this morning off I go to get it on, it's been slightly high all day, and then it went really high...maybe it was after the phone call where I had a very irate customer abuse me... Yes that got my blood pressure

Then it's been down all night, it reads it every half hour, soon it will be very hour and lucky me gets to sleep with it on.. How I will sleep..I have no

Then lucky me gets to have a blood test in the morning.. Now to try and get the veins to co-operate, they go into hiding at the sight of a needle..

And then in 2 weeks my "girls" get a free screening because of my age ...squeezed into shapes you couldn't imagine ... Oh the joys of getting

so far all results back are perfect and clear... Which i am so grateful I suppose 24 hours of my arm being squeezed in half will be ok...
