What's in a number?


I know from reading your posts that a lot of you are around my age. Of course I can't tell you all what my age is because as you know from my previous posts and comments - blogger or my key board has a bit of a problem printing the specific numbers. I really must get that sorted! Still, it's suffice to say I often run a temperature at night but don't have an infection and I have trouble remembering my name but I don't have dementia. Apparently I am suffering from a condition which is temporary and begins with M - but I can't remember what it is. Get where I'm coming from Girls?? So, all of this is my excuse for creating these gorgeous little felt baby shoes last weekend. Now all I need to do is hear from a friend or relative who is pregnant. Problem is none of them are? My long suffering other half thinks I've gone barking mad! Particularly as I have them on my bedside table to look at last thing at night and first thing in the morning!!

oh boy..you are describing something that i appear to be suffering from too...although I am also prone to the most awful mood swings...up one minute, down the next...I wonder what it could be? My eldest is pregnant with her third child so I have a recipient or two for all the strange/cute/gorgeous little bits and bobs I feel a need to make. The trouble is, in my head, I only think I am 35 so all this stuff is really annoying me. It just doesn't feel right that my body is erm...changing...well inside, not outside, hopefully but it's a struggle! I love those little shoes..so very cute, sure some little twinkle toes will be around to fit them soon. It's good to have a gift or two ready just in case anyway. I'm off to knit another dishcloth! ;^)that's if I can remember the pattern!

I'm not quite there yet but it's fast approaching!
The shoes are very cute, If you don't find a suitable recipient I'd leave them on the bedside table as a decorative object....if Laura Ashley can have an old ladder and a galvanised steel bucket in their room sets then you can have baby bootees in yours!

Thanks for your comments, I'd love to have you join us, it's hard work but we get fed and watered.

this post made me laugh out loud! i must admit that what you're describing is NOT a stage I'm looking forward to reaching- but i find it heartening that you approach it with such good spirit.
beautiful little shoes- i think it's fine that you leave them on your bedside table to admire!

If I'd have made those shoes I would keep them by my bedside too! Unfortunately I seem to be suffering from the same kind of mystery illness! Thanks for the comments, and the poppy lasted until this evening - 5 whole days of heavy rain!

Is it hot in here or is it me? I've had 5 years of the hot flushes now - I'm hoping they'll stop soon!

The little slipper boots are so sweet, why not enjoy looking at them?

Sometimes I think that M stands for: "Maybe I'm Losing It." So long as I don't lose my little battery operated fan, or forget where I put the chocolate, I guess I'm fine. Oh, before I forget...Those baby shoes are too adorable!

Natasha said...

Oh I cannot say that I am at the "M" stage but sheesh I know that it is over that next hill!!

Barking mad...hehehe

Oh this did make me laugh! Am having bloodtests in two weeks time to see if I have M syndrome or not! I saw the Doc this Tuesday and then walked home - forgetting the car in the surgery car park!
