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 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,
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.
Love Margie ❤️
