Quick update

Hi everyone. Just a very, very quick update to let you all know what's going on.

I'm finished with the toe up sock for the June sock (the top down version was finished last week). but I've not had a chance to do pics yet. Hoping to get some done tomorrow and then just got a couple of alterations to make to the patterns. I'm not sure if I'll be able to start e-mailing out the patterns tomorrow but I'll try to get them done over the weekend. I know you'll all say not to worry about it but I like to keep to my plan.

It's been a tough day today and I'm exhausted now. It was my Grandfather's funeral this morning. It was so touching as a lot more people turned up than we had thought as a lot of his friends have passed away already and we're a small family. But there were lots of people there. My Grandfather was a very popular, friendly and kind man who was always helping people out and chatting to everyone. The funeral service was beautiful but very sad. We had a small lunch afterwards at my Gran's nursing home for some of their closest friends and family. I felt so sorry for my Gran. She is quite confused. But she seemed to enjoy seeing some of their friends again and she ate well. But afterwards my Dad was told by the doctor that she had been very confused yesterday about who had died, she is undernourished and dehydrated and has got a quite nasty diarrhoea but. Tonight they're going to start feeding her intravenously. The diarrhoea bug is the same one that my Grandfather caught before he died. I've got an awful feeling that we may be back in Norway fairly soon.

Thank you so much to everyone for all your lovely comments and support. I've loved seeing everyone's May Socks. If you've not finished, don't worry. Just keep us updated and show us pics when they're done. I'll update the finished list tomorrow or Saturday. I'm just too tired to concentrate too much now. So if you've just finished or are just about to finish, get your pic posted quickly.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

This is a difficult time for you. Don't worry about getting the June pattern to us.

That's too bad about your grandmother. Hope she will recover. My mother is confused most of the time. She's 91 and has Alzheimer's.

Don't worry about the sock pattern. We can all wait.
