Steam rally and health update

Last Sunday Mr Margie and I went to the Stradbally Vintage Steam Rally with my Mam and Dad in my 1968 Morris Minor. 

We wanted to recreate a photo taken in 1966,

when all three of us posed in front of a steam engine. 

We gave our vintage party clothes another wear. 

I made a picnic lunch and brought my crochet project along.

I am currently trying out the 'V' stitch, 

the crochet community are all going wild over it, and I was eager to give it a try, it is easy to do, works up quickly, and looks so nice. 

Yesterday the garden at Chez Margie was in use again when some dear friends called by, a spot of afternoon tea, 

I baked some sugarless, dairy free chocolate and sugar free cherry jam cupcakes and a rose water and raspberry cake. 

Chats and some more crochet and knitting with them and Merino cat was just the perfect way to while away the hours. 

I visited the hospital again last week for blood tests, port flush and had a weigh in too. I am happy to report that I have put on two kilos since completing the chemo. I am meeting my surgeon on Friday and the next three month CT scan is scheduled for early September. 

I was sad to say goodbye to Isla, 

Esmé,Mel,and Chris this week but was glad that we got to spend time together

at the National Stud and the Japanese Gardens with our dear friend Bernie. 

I have also been nominated for an Irish blog award and am included in the long list under the personal blog category, not sure how it all works but I will keep you all posted. 

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog. 

Big hugs, 
Love Margie ❤️
