as dd says. So guess what I was doing Sunday afternoon? Ripping off the labels on water bottles to add our own customized labels for the baby shower. Even dh raised his eyebrows; but as I said it's all in the details!!
One of my goals for 2013 is to learn to crochet, as I love grannie squares. So on Sunday night I thought I would go on You Tube and see what I could learn. Well after about 20 minutes I had mastered the slip knot thingy that starts you off. Then I got totally lost and confused when we had to start doing a chain? So I can see this is going to take a bit more work than I thought. Although I think some smoother wool/yarn would help as I am using Martha Stewart Alpaca Blend which is a #5 bulky (?) whatever that means? I was using a 6.5 mm or K hook with it.
Dh had an appointment at the hospital on Monday to see the surgeon who did the scope on his right knee. Was told his knee is as good as it's going to be and to use his left knee to kneel on! Anyhow the MRI on his left knee shows the same problem, torn meniscus and arthritis. He can have it operated on whenever he wants, but after what has happened with his right knee, he told the surgeon he'll wait until he can't stand the pain no more and then he'll have it operated on.
Anyhow why I am even mentioning this is I wanted to share something we found out today. Whenever we have an appointment at the fracture clinic we they are always running a couple of hours behind schedule which is bloody annoying. Found out why the surgeon we saw on Monday had 70 patients booked in between the hours of 8am until 12 noon. Yes you read right 70. One that's just bloody ridiculous and bloody greedy, as no doubt he gets paid for every patient he sees.
