GARDENING LEAVE (NOT)

spring view

The view from our terrace in Le Grand-Pressigny last week.

I am taking a break from work, due to having had a minor operation on my hand.  However, as you can see, it resulted in a large bandage with a high sympathy factor !!

handIt really isn’t as bad as it looks but having a week at home unable to do gardening, baking or beading presents a challenge.

 

 

 

Mind you, I have to keep it dry so no cooking or washing-up either, so it’s not all bad nows.  Luckily I can still use the computer – although my typing is a little hit and muss !!

  1. Hope you're back to 100% soon! Except for that washing-up part...

  2. Oh dear, Jean! Turfed from your kitchen, beading place, and garden. Cruel and unusual punishment. Gasp! Sigh!

    Here's hoping you're soon well-healed and back to you "handy" pursuits.

  5. Walt - thanks.

    Bear - it's not fair, but thanks.

    Gail - Nick was the lucky one. He spent a few days there by himself.

    Diane - I will just have to sit in the garden and enjoy the spring, quel dommage !!

  6. Hope it heals quickly! And that you have some sun to sit in and enjoy doing nothing. Plant wise everything here is seems to be exploding all at once! :-)

  11. Hope your hand heals soon and that you get back to your beading soon. I sort of fiddle about with beads as well. Very addictive occupation I find!

  12. Vera - thanks - beading is extremely addictive, I have found. However I have also found I can design and string the beads but not finish things off as i can't hold the pliers. So it's not all bad.
