Moving in

My husband and I are still in the process of moving into Mums place. Some of you may remember that this is where we started! I was living with mum when we met 11 years ago. We lived at the top of mums house, our bedroom and sitting room were in the loft. Now there is a little more room. We have a bed room down stairs next to mums and the whole of the top floor is our living space. This is just half of that space, the other half is a mess of boxes at the moment, but will become my sewing room.
There is still a lot more to do, we didn't finish clearing the flat yet. The landlord has been very understanding. 
Tomorrow Mum and I are off to Liverpool again for a second consultation appointment with 'The Proff'. We know now that Mum has pre leukaemia. Now she is being monitored and taking a low grade chemotherapy while we wait for the disease to make the next move. That means weekly blood tests and occasional transfusions at the local hospital.

A quick post

Mum is very ill. My saint of a husband and I are in the process of giving up our home to move in with her. We may also have to put our plans to move to NZ on hold. 
Lots of sitting about in hospitals means lots of crochet time. This is the project I took away with me on our long weekend, before all of the other stuff got in the way.
I'm busy working on another one in similar colours. Did I tell you I'm to be a nanny in June next year? My first Grand child will be cozy warm. I'll be back with more news and a crafty update whenever I can.
