His temporary cast is quite heavy and he was a little uncomfortable through the night with it. He still doesn't sleep well anyway due to his itchy eczema but last night he kept waking up saying 'too heavy, too heavy' and trying to get comfortable! We go back tomorrow (Tuesday) to get his other cast on, which they said will be lighter and more comfortable.
Such a brave little boy.
The nurse at the hospital said how busy they have been this last month with broken bones since the weather has been so nice.
I was always convinced that the first broken arm we would have in our house would be as a result of a shinty or football injury. Not just falling off a sofa!

You can't really see the pearls in the photo but here are my grandparents on their wedding day.

This is such a pretty little Granny Square and you can find the free pattern (including very helpful pictures for any beginners out there) over here at Attic24. I should also add in closing, if you are a crochet lover like me you may find yourself getting a little sucked in to all the crochet loveliness over at Attic24 and may find yourself there for some time!

Saturday was the local agricultural show and the boys were eager to get their entries in to various competitions.
As were my parents!
Competitions include those for livestock, photography, locally grown vegetables & plants, sewing, knitting/crochet, art, woodwork and of course baking.
Calum (10) entered this rather cute duckie into the under 12s 'Animal or scene made from fruit or vegetable' competition.

On Saturday it was the local agricultural show.
(More about the show in tomorrow's post)
There are a few craft stalls at the show and so I had one booked for some of my makes.
I spent the evenings last week making up these glass cabochon shapes. The square ones and the smaller round ones were for pendants, the larger round ones were paperweights and the oval ones were for letter openers.
That's the little helper having his first taste of candy floss and not quite sure what to make of it!
It was a really busy day at the show and the stall did quite well, as did some members of my family in the competitions, but like I said earlier, more about that tomorrow!
