Friday Night with Friends

So here I am in UK braving blogger on my kindle and hoping I will be able to add a picture or two!

Friday was a busy day and so it was good to relax in the evening with my crochet and an old episode of Foyles War knowing that I had friends keeping me company. I keep my Persian Tiles project here and the pattern soon came back to me. I managed about half of one of the octagonal blocks - two more to do after this one! Right, here goes - hopefully picture coming up!

I travelled to UK on Thursday to visit Mum in hospital and Dad in a care home. Sadly Dad died before I arrived. He will be very much missed. Here he is on his 90th a couple of years ago.


Mum had a big hip operation on Friday afternoon which she came through well. She was much brighter when I visited yesterday although she will be in hospital for some weeks yet.

Thank you all for your company in Friday night and thank you Cheryll for hosting us.

Oh Lin, I am saddened to hear that your dad passed away; and your mum having an operation too. So devastating for you. Such a beautiful photo of your dad. To live for 90 years is amazing. I hope your mum recovers well...such a dreadful time for you all. Sending you many hugs♥

I was sad to read you lost your father. He looked amazing on his 90th! Still missing my dad too and I know you will as well.

Your crochet is beautiful and I'm glad you have it to keep you company while taking care of your mother. ((hugs))

Oh Lin, what sad news to hear about your Dad, and also sorry it seems he must have passed away whilst your mum is in hospital having the operation! I do hope she is recovering well. On much brighter note, I'm loving your persian crochet block!!! I've been thinking about working on some of those once we hit summer - just have to work out which pattern!

I am so very sorry to hear pf your Dads passing Lin, love that last photo of him on your post. I hope your Mum recovers quickly. Love your crochet. Well done on managing on the tablet/kindle!

Oh Lin, I have only just managed to do FnwF rounds and read your post.
I am so sorry to read about your dad, how sad :-( It is never easy for those left behind.....
I hope your mum gets on well with her recovery, everything takes so much longer later in life. It is always a worry, specially when you live in another country (I know all about that, only it was so much harder to travel over there in my situation). Does she normally live on her own or will she be also in a care home?
Thinking of you,
