Sister act.

About three weeks ago one of our favourite nurses, Liz, was promoted to Sister. This gave us a wonderful idea, but due to the one week break in treatment, days off and a weeks holiday for her (who said she could have a week off!!!) it wasn't until today that we could finally put our cunning plan into action. After hours of sewing bias binding onto the collar, sleeves and pocket and cutting and gluing we came up with this:
So authentic was my handiwork on the watch, that Mike left his watch at home!

Meanwhile in the vegetable patch, things have slowly been growing, by which I mean too slow for my liking. Patience is NOT one of my many virtues.... cough cough.

Toni of course just sits and observes all the hard work!


  1. Look at that cute little tomato! We have lots of green tomatoes in our garden... just waiting for them to ripen. Patience is not one of my virtues, either.
    Love to you guys!

  2. Toni looks like an excellent sidewalk supervisor, if a little snooty. Your garden looks lushious and Mike is looking quite well, too...

  3. So I'm not quite "lushious" then?.....but at least you didn't call me a lush. lolxxx.

  4. A RED tomato? Show-offs!
    Where's Mike's frilly white bonnet?
    I can't wait to see the next "costume" in the series!

  5. Due to technical difficulties Paula cannot comment so she sent her witty remarks to my email and I quote:

    "So we now know that Lorna can be crafty but only for a short time. (not crafty enough for socks) You look well! (Take that which ever way you want!)"
