A year ago on the 15th April I started this Sewing for Sasha blog. I have actually been blogging since 2007, but this blog is celebrating its first birthday, and its 200th post! Goodness have I really nattered on 200 times since starting a year ago?
To celebrate this I am having a New Zealand Giveaway

Henry has been a kind soul today accompanying me to the UCL Neurology & Neurosurgery Hospital in Queen Square, London for my Lidocaine Infusion at the Pain Management Department.
Today we had to take 'Mum' to hospital for a treatment where they put this huge needle in her hand and attach her to all sorts of heart and blood pressure monitors...the needle part was a bit scary and I had to hide my eyes but Mum took it all in her stride having had it done before.
'Dad' made the comment about he was surprised Mum wasn't committed when the doctor and nurses saw that she had brought me along to accompany her, he added, surely he was enough...not sure quite what he meant by that. Surely he couldn't have been insinuating that it was strange for me to be coming with them. After all I am quite a caring lad most of the time.
We couldn't stop on the way there as it was very crowded in the morning but after the treatment we stopped and took a few photos, much to Dad's horror! Again I'm not sure what the problem he had was...
The first stop was The Horse Hospital. I couldn't see any horses inside. Worrying about Dallas and hoping he won't have to come up here as it is a long way on the train and tube and they are noisy, Mum reassured me that it wasn't used for that purpose anymore...BUT they still have the sign, so I'm not convinced, and I'm not sure it looks a really nice place, there is no grass anywhere!
This is the station near the hospital.
Waiting for the train...I wonder if I can see it coming...
Being careful not to step over the yellow line.
Oops...just got told off for standing on the seats...not fair I wanted to see out the window!
I guess it is safer sitting down though. Nearly home.
Once home I rushed to see if Dallas was okay.
I told him all about it
Reassuring him that he doesn't need to go up to the Horse Hospital.
I think both he and I are quite relieved about that.
So if you want to enter my giveaway, don't forget!
It will be held open until the end of April. If you want to tell other Sasha friends about it, please do, and if you want you can 'grab' my picture from the side bar, or below.
