December… but I will be around!!
Signing off with some pictures from my daily walks to work early mornings…

 Still here…
trying to sew when I have the time…
last week held little time behind the sewing machine 
when Mum was here..
Now she is back at home..  and brother is in charge…

She is doing fine… despite everything…
she will never be able to lift her arm again.. and life feels hard…
Still hope the surgery will do some good!
