😷 It’s fair to say I’m still feeling blooming awful, my nose 👃 has turned into a leaky tap, which refuses to stop and I have all the energy of a sloth. I’ve barely managed to knit over the past few days, feeling even the little exertion necessary to move my hands just too much. I say this but it’s not really true, well not completely. I’m easily distracted at the best of times, but when a little run down this takes on a whole new level of insanity 👽 My brain races ten to the dozen (or so it feels), coming up with new ideas and plans for things to knit, make, cook, etc, but the body and concentration levels find it hard to keep up.
I’m going to suddenly be able to knit the shawl I’ve been lusting over since I saw my friend wearing it on Saturday - now, today, from start to finish. I’m also going to be able to walk my dogs around the farm without needing to take my boots off and change into my wellies (this will require effort and quite likely bending – both not good for my banging head). The walk will take place under the belting 🌞 sun 🌞 and I will be hither to unscathed, by the gale force winds that seem to be pounding the living daylights out of the trees outside my office window.
I’m also trying to avoid looking around the office, through fear that the mess will become too much to bare (oops nearly wrote bear) and I will once again feel the need to commence tidy up procedures. I’ve tried on at least two occasions since Sunday, to clear some space both on my desk and on the other surfaces around me (including the floor), but it’s still over cluttered, even by my standards.
The living room isn’t much better, except there’s only bits of one project sitting on the pouffe, well they’re samples. They’re actually a rework of the samples that are strewn across my desk. As if to prove a point as to the extremes of my ability to do the polar opposite of organise myself. I have managed to mislay, the pattern for a daisy edged shawl I’d been working on for some time a couple of weeks back. That’s fine, I know they’ll eventually show up, except my afore mentioned, cold infected brain must have them now so I can get the shawl knitted, blocked and be wearing it tomorrow at the latest ;-)
Pigs might fly and in this wind there’s every chance they will 🐷 🐷 🐷
Before I go you might wonder why I haven’t mentioned the cowl in the photo at the top of the page, well that’s because it’s finished and residing with it’s new owner and I’ve forgotten to take a photo. So when I have one I promise to share ♥
