Woah, What a New Year so far!

Haha well, I shouldn't laugh but we have too.. you just don't know what's going to happen tomorrow huh.. Well I arrived down here Friday, on Saturday we went to Motuaka to see one of my Mum's friends.  Decided we were early so we'd call into The Warehouse (where everyone gets a bargain).... well,  to cut a long story short my Mum fainted inside the building after only 5 minutes and broke her leg!  Lucky I'm here to help my sister as Mum can't use crutches.  She has arthritis everywhere.. but she's a very good patient!  They'd planned to go to Christchurch tomorrow and see my brother so I've changed my flights and will go with them to help out.  Fly home Sunday.

I've been coughing and feeling under the weather since Boxing Day so no sewing done at all.  Yesterday I gave in and went to the Dr's here.  Got antibiotics which hopefully will kick it in the butt now! 

Will catch up with you all when I get home.

PS The good news is I found some gorgeous fabrics for my challenge!!   Woohooo

Oh goodness, a broken leg, I don't know if I'd be able to hold myself up on crutches either.
A bridge gal broke her hip on New Year's eve, falling on ice. She is so thin that I sometimes think it's better to have a bit on the hips to help us if we fall!
Get well soon.

Oh Dear Karen,

I am so sorry to hear that your dear Mother broke her leg.
That is such a shame and really not the way to start the new year.
Also I hope that you are feeling better now, after taking the medication and over your cold.
Take care Karen and love to all the family.
Wishing for a better year from now.
