R & R week

One week, one block - not exactly productivity ;-)
This has been a true R & R week, resting, napping, and watching taped VHSs. I like British crime series, like Inspector Morse, A Touch of Frost and such, and had several taped from TV and not yet seen.
I thought for some days there they had "fixed" my brain at the hospital as well, having the attention span of a mosquito, not remembering what I was to do with whatever I had in my hand. Hmmm - sewing - hmmm - would be nice, if I only could thread this needle, hmmm - later - hmmm - maybe....... Get the picture? ;-)
I turned my sewing machine on for the first time yesterday, but now both the machine and I am in on mode I think :-)
The lovely primroses I got from my favourite aunt. They are so beautiful and springlike.
I do not like flowers in hospital, so after coming home I have enjoyed flowers - tulips and the primroses and I have been gifted with money to buy more flowers when I like. Very nice :-)
Yesterday I was out shopping with DH and amongst other things bought 2 pairs of nice jeans with stretch to fit my new (and improved!) body.
I was attending a friend's birthday yesterday evening, even enjoying a glass of champagne.
Today we celebrate Mother's Day here in Norway and we are going to a little coffee and cake get together with my in-laws later.
Life is good :-)


  1. Happy mothers day Hanne. Do not stress about that sewing. You do it when you feel for it!! Just enjoy your new daily life and what that brings. Hugs.

  2. It's good to see you back. The BI-blocks are really nice. Do you paper piece them?


  3. Happy Mother's Day Hanne. It's so good to see you posting. Love the primroses as well as the quilt they're standing on.

    Take care of yourself and enjoy your new life, that's essentially what you've got - isn't it?

    Life is good ..... I totally agree.

  4. You are getting out of the house! Hooray!! How wonderful to begin normal living again. Happy Mother's Day.

    il est trés beau ce blog rouge , mais j'apperçois sous le pot de primenères un patch qui doit etre trés beau, avec les coeurs

  12. Hanne - glad to hear that you are out socializing and enjoying yourself!!! And your block of the week is lovely.



  13. Glad to hear you are mending slowly. I think it takes a long time to fully recover from surgery. I do enjoy those British crime dramas too. Relax and enjoy :)

  14. Glad you are feeling well enough to sew. I love British mystery tv too. One of my favorites is "Jonathon Creek" about a magician's assistant who solves very difficult crimes. My husband LOVES Touch of Frost.
