The hospital, however, was 2 hours drive away from home. My appointment was 9.30am, so I decided to stay near the hospital the night before, to avoid rushing and battling with Monday morning rush hour traffic.
The hospital have a "Lodge" within the grounds, which is available to patients and relatives, for a small charge. Not quite a hotel, but my own little room, TV and space to crochet. A freshly cooked dinner too - almost luxury!
My Yarndale mandala was made.
The start of a new blanket for the spare room. (because I need to start a new project!)
There was a lovely colourful print above the bed.
After my appointment this morning, rather than drive home immediately I spent an hour sitting in the sunshine in the hospital gardens. Aren't they pretty. I'm almost looking forward to going back next week!
