Crochet Mood Blanket - Week Eight

I'm almost two months in to this year long project and I am still loving it!  Here are my colours for the last seven days:

Day 50 - Petrol, I had another weight gain and I still had toothache :(
Day 51 - Magenta, I had a busy day but it was the start of the weekend!
Day 52 - Silver, another busy day but it was lovely and sunny :)
Day 53 - Spice, I had a lazy, cosy day :)
Day 54 - Saffron, it was a lovely, sunny day and I was almost pain free :)
Day 55 - Cream, I had a nice day and saw an old school friend for the first time in 27 years!
Day 56 - Turquoise, another sunny day but this time it was warm too!
And here it is, the perfect size for a lap blanket at the moment but still plenty of growing to do:
It's raining here today so I wouldn't be surprised if today's square is grey :)

Week Eight

Week eight was all about pain for me :( I've had terrible pains in my mouth, ear and the whole side of my face, my mum thinks it's neuralgia so I had a trip to the dentist.  Here are the highlights from my week though :)

Paul got me this amazing shower curtain :)
She was happy to be at work.....not!
I made pancakes :)
Which Maddie loved:
And Alfie drooled over :)
The dentist loaded me up with drugs, it looks like I have a troublesome tooth but he doesn't think that's what causing my facial pain :(
Maddie got a very late Christmas present!
After having a broken grill for almost eight years I finally remembered that the new oven I got way back in September had a fully working grill!  Lovely cheese on toast:
Alfie gave me lots of cuddles to make me feel better :)
Dirty pudding :)
Chips for lunch!!! I know that's bad but I was feeling so down and hurting so much:
It's getting lighter and lighter when I get home from work and I am loving it!
A night at bingo with the girls, no winnings though :(
Although I did manage to get hold of this mini Oscar for my resident film buff!
And on Sunday I stayed in the warm with my snoring pooch and did some crochet.
I've finished my antibiotics now and although the pain is still there it has subsided a bit.  I'm not due back at the dentist until next week and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have to book an emergency appointment.

I hope you have a good week.

Crochet Mood Blanket - Week Seven

This week has been horrible.  I've had a migraine and toothache and I just couldn't get in to my crochet.  I missed a day and was feeling so fed up but I still managed to add seven more squares to my blanket.  Here's what they represent:

Day 43 - Lipstick, I had a weight gain but I was still feeling good.
Day 44 - Lime, I had a migraine :(
Day 45 - Saffron, I had a lovely day by the seaside with Paul :)
Day 46 - Grey, I had toothache and didn't get any sleep :(
Day 47 - Raspberry, I had a really busy day at work, at least it took my mind off the toothache!
Day 48 - Turquoise, it was a lovely, sunny day :)
Day 49 - Aspen, I finally got to the dentist and felt a whole lot better once he given me some drugs :)
And here is the progress:
I am still loving this project and I'm hoping that this coming week brings more happy colours to my blanket.

Week Seven

Week seven was a very quiet one with a not very nice ending :( Here are the highs and lows:

It's still quite light when we leave work which is nice :)
Maddie was feeling poorly again, I think she has developed an intolerance to onions. She's hoping I'm wrong because onions are a favourite of hers!
I had a lovely walk in the park on one of my lunch breaks :)
I had a small gain at slimming :(
I still enjoyed dirty pudding though :)
I had a lovely delivery of stash :)
I went to stay with this pretty girl :)
I got up to date with Project Life (well I've got all of my photos in the album, just need to tart it up :))
Paul got me an amazing present:
I've wanted one for ages and I think it's better than flowers or chocolates :)

We had a lovely Valentine's meal:
And enjoyed the nice weather with this not so little chap!
My week had a horrible ending due to a migraine on Friday that gave me a sleepless night. Luckily it was downgraded to a headache on Saturday. I was so looking forward to a full nights sleep but then got tooth ache so had another sleepless night :(

I have a feeling this is going to be a long week!
