A little colour for a grey day

image

Today I have managed to muster a little mojo, and we have my version of Multnomah. The plain knit section is finished and I am about to start the feather and fan border.

The yarn is some Posh Elinor (colour Glenlogie) which was a gift from the GoD Lady.

Bananas and orange squash

These seem to be making up a large part of my diet the last few days.

Orange squash to relieve the boredom, of what feels like gallons, of water, and bananas as I have to take my pills with food, and given they make me feel sick, and I am on a diet, a banana wins as palatable, non-vom-inducing food for first thing and last thing of the day.

Not entirely convinced, these pills are the right pills. Course 3 of something else might be required, but at least they can do tests and make sure that one is right.

All knitting has lost its shine. I have been snuggling cats and watching films and TV.

Joints also misbehaving so, although not utterly miserable, I can’t say that I am full of the joys of spring.

Not even the promise of a fridge (next Tuesday) that won’t freeze anything unlucky enough to make it to the back of a shelf cheers me… Although the scent of the subsequent Waitrose order to fill it and the freezer is starting to make my nose twitch.

Very bored

Not in general, just with this stupid infection. Two flipping weeks on and off, it seems to be gone and then wham. Hoping this second course of antibiotics will kill it dead. The Out of Hours doctor was great, no nonsense and to the point, the hour wait wasn’t so brilliant, but needs must. Thankfully the chemist was open at Ocean Terminal.

One thing about mostly being tethered to the flat, is that you have a fair amount of knitting time. I have knit one shawl this week, and started another. I haven’t Ravelry’d them yet so no links and no also no pictures taken. The 3 in 1 is on a break. We haven’t fallen out I’m just a bit tired of constraint knit stitch (I totally don’t have spring startitis and if I do, I’m sure these antibiotics will cure it soon…).

Baking biscuits

New oven and a new recipe might not work out being my best idea…

But these look interesting. Oh and add into the above, using gluten free flour…

Glutton for punishment. Obviously!

Look out for photos later….

Flump, slump.

I think I’ve been running on stress and adrenaline since I bought the cooker last week. I have been pushing myself to do things, not sleeping well and generally over extending.
On the plus, I have a clean flat, new tiling, a new cooker (installed and dinner cooked using it) and feel a sense of accomplishment.
On the down side since the cooker arrived today, I have slumped. I am really tired, I have pain, hips, feet, shoulders, hands, wrists, and a head ache. I nearly didn’t make dinner as it seemed too much bother. I’ve discovered yet more dermatitis. I can’t concentrate, so no knitting, no reading. I am officially taking tomorrow off.
Off to bed soon, then tomorrow the only things I am doing are feeding me and the cats, and things to relax. I was going to make biscuits, but they can wait.

Ribbit, ribbit

When you don’t pay attention the frogs invade….

Forgot waist decreases, reknitting the start of section three, in the 3 in 1…… It was only 30 odd short rows.

*sighs*
