My worktop this week is a bit different from normal as I am trying to make a few Christmas cards in the motorhome whilst DH is in hospital. (This is also, of course my worktop on Tuesday, not Wednesday as no-one would get to see it at all if I waited until Wednesday to try and write this). Still the same mess my worktop always is, but rather smaller and working with a very limited amount of equipment and material. I found it very hard limiting myself to one A4 box of materials and realise that I have not included any mirror card or other card for matting and layering, nor have I any card for making other than A6 cards. I did do some retail therapy whilst himself was in hospital but that ended up with me buying stuff that I can't use here anyway, like the Xcut cutters in the background. Would have been foolish not too when they were reduced from £24.99 to £5.99, but no use to me here. Might have to do more therapy tomorrow. Unfortunately I have had to pack up everything as I wish to go to bed tonight and those who know caravans will know that it is not possible to leave stuff out overnight in a van unless you want to sleep standing up.Here I must say an incredible big 'THANK YOU' to all those who have been praying and sending me messages via Margaret whilst DH has been in hospital, he still is, but your love, for someone you have never met, except on here, has been overwhelming. I didn't know such love and care could carry me through all this and your prayers have been so uplifting. We are still not sure when he will be coming out of hospital, the messages we are getting have been very mixed.
The hospital at Papworth is wonderful, mainly the staff are brilliant and the setting is glorious, picture on left is from the grounds of the hospital, we saw a woodpecker the other day and there is a lake with loads of ducks and a black swan. It is just so beautiful and the powers that be think they can replace it on the edge of farmland in Cambridge on the Addenbrooks site. Not going to be anything like as calming for relatives and I can't imagine the patients are going to enjoy a walk around the car park in the same way as they enjoy a walk around the lake.
Well it is bedtime and I have to finish clearing stuff away before I can get my bed sorted out and I do need my sleep.
