What a strange week!

Well this week certainly didn't pan out like I thought it would!

Tuesday morning I was woken by excruciating pain in my upper stomach, I'm talking me on my hand and knees screaming in agony! So after ringing the NHS line and been told it would be an hour before a nurse rang back we decided to make our way to the hospital.

After lots of tests and xrays they determined it was gallstones! Ouch. So I haven't been back to work since as they said I needed to rest and David, along with two of my bosses, told me to take the rest of the week off. I just have to wait for some more test results to come back and visit my doctor next week.

It could of just been a one off but if it starts happening on a regular basis I may need surgery to remove it. Eek!

Between that, and a couple of meals out here and there over the weekend I only lost 1/2lb this week, but I'll take that. A loss is a loss!

The only good news I have is because I have been cooped up at home with my feet up it has meant I got some stitching done.

First I stitched my small for the small sal, sorry but you will have to wait to see it though!

Next I carried on with Row Of Cats and I'm pleased to say the second cat is now complete, along with both of their toys too!

I've since pulled out Mini The Black again, and I've done some stitches other than DMC 310! Woohoo! But don't get too excited, it has only been browns and greys haha! I think I am going to continue working on it this weekend and I will post a photo after that :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
