February the month of the doctors!

Hello again everyone!
Still this blog is continuing on monthly blog posts!
Hope you are all well and you still read me even if I rarely blog!
February wasn't a very happy month healthwise, hence the title of this post.
We had to visit all kinds of doctors for check ups. One thing brought another but hopefully all is well in the end.
So here's what I was up to this month!
In February it was carnival
The kids did various things about Carnival at school. They made masks with their Art teacher.
But I also made masks with them!
Some put on masks and wigs during a Carnival party at school and I had to try one of the wigs too.
Clowns visited the school and did games with the children. I had to take part somehow too although I wasn't in the best of moods.
That tall skinny clown called himself macaroni!
The Parents' Association organized a party too at a club and I went to dance with the kids.
Hubby and I went out with our Drama Club and had to put something on!What I really like about this photo is my smile inspite all the bad things that were happening at the time! I don't like bad things spoiling my happiness!
During February the weather was rather cold but there were also good sunny days too. Of course we walked the sea front a lot as always.
Even with the school we walked the seafront to go to the theatre.

It was this play we went to see "Noah's Family"
In February we went to Serres too for a day. It was raining heavily all the way.
I also spent an afternoon at Koumpi coffee and crafts cafe with my dear crafty group.Under the supervision of Anna of In My Closet we made lovely flowers and kites out of tin cans for charity.

In February I had coffee with friends in this lovely little cafe in the city centre called Petit Paris!
I love the way they have decorated the cafe.

As I told you healthwise it wasn't the best of months and friends of ours too have been to hospital. We make each visit a party to cheer them up!And hope for the best!
On Clean Monday we had dinner at my brother's and he and his wife had made an excellent meal of various delicious treats! I added my giant beans, coleslaw and octopus!

In February my Godson had a concert at his music school and I enjoyed it so much.He even presented us with his own composition for piano, strings and woodwinds.
Other bad things have happened too. Our beach house was vandalised by someone who disliked the fact that we had refugees there for a weekend last summer!Oh well!

Other things are better in life!Like our Barca sensing the spring!
During February I kept busy with my crafts.
In the ceramics class I made two dishes.
I brought home my coffeepot.
I made a set of coasters.
And I brought home one of the dishes too.
During February I finished my Balinese Dancer.

Now I have to frame it.
I also stitched a couple of Easter things that I will show you in the next month!
In February we did an exchange of gifts with the Drama Club and I received these.
I also received a card for my birthday from my dear Marabeth.
A card from dear Frieda from the Netherlands.
Another lovely parcel from dear Juliana in Scotland filled with great chocolate and sea glass.
And I really adored this blown glass heart!
I also received a postcard from Hong Kong where my dear friend Cathy is travelling.
And a letter and a birthday card from dear Ruth in Israel.
I also received this great poetry and painting book from another dear friend.
And a sweet mug cover from a dear colleague!
In February I read the following books.

And I bought some plastic thread bobbins to at last wound my threads to.
And a great Spring jacket from the second hand shop (although the jacket is absolutely new)
 In February I was using this lovely desktop calendar by Geninne Zlatkis. You can find it here.
I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post and that you are well!
See you next month!
