She came through it fine - they removed a piece of bone which was "floating" in her knee, but they have said that the ligament is lax and so will need a re-reconstruction in the near future. Once this work has healed, she has to see the consultant again on Sept 1st, to discuss the next steps.
Also may I welcome the new followers I've recently acquired. It makes me feel quite humble that people across the world are interested in my ramblings!
In the meantime I've been busy with part of Jessica's birthday present - we bought her a tabby cat from the "Build-a-bear" shop in town - only I know it's a cat!
We bought an Arsenal football kit for it as both my daughter and my husband are football fans and they both support Arsenal (Erika was a ballgirl once for a Premier League match!) Boots were available, but I made her a pair of boots out of felt!
But to make it into a girl cat I also made a fairy dress for Rosie (what we named the cat!).
Let me also share what I made for her actual birthday for Jessica to wear.
Finally let me share the party invites I made for the party - if you're around next weekend you're more than welcome to drop in for a piece of cake!
Until next time - take care
