In the deep midwinter…

Snuggled in bed with a cup of coffee. It’s pretty blustery outside, but today I must go out. Yesterday was so wet and windy I changed my mind about leaving the flat, however, needs must. Normally on a Saturday, my alarm goes off at 8am so I can poddle about and be at fat club by 10, but WW is closed this week, and so I have the day to myself. Unlike everyone else seems to, I didn’t shop for the apocalypse before Christmas. I bought food for a couple of days, and it was all eaten. I have a freezer full, but haven’t taken anything out (oops). So some food is required, for me and the cats.
Talking of cats, my elderly lady is now on thyroid medication, She gave me quite a scare, by having a bit of an attack from the stress of the vet. Seems her over active thyroid has affected her heart, however the vet is fairly confident  that as her levels get better, her heart will too. Even after 3 days she does seem to be calmer, and the frantic purr has returned to normal.
Hope Santa was good to you all, he was to me.

Slow going

Hands, wrists and shoulders sore (other joints too, but they don’t impact knitting). I’ve managed a few rows a day (have to stop after one and do more later) and have finally finished 14 repeats of the kiri. Starting the edging, not because I need to yarnwise, but because I feel like I’ll never actually get it finished otherwise.

I have bought these patterns, and this and downloaded a few free shawl ones. I have one of Romi’s 7 small shawls booklets already, although I haven’t got round to knitting any (quelle surprise), I do like the patterns, and I have plenty of single skeins to use up. I also like the idea of getting the updates, it’s like a series of small presents over the course of the subscription.

Busy week this week. More Christmas cards needed and need posted, fudge & biscuits need made and bagged, presents need bought and wrapped for Sunday, and I have drinks, dinner, lunch, fat club and the family do to fit in. I’m sure I’m forgetting something…probably more than just one thing, as my brain is still mince. Next week will be quieter.

Hrt continues to be problematic, along with the joints, eyes driving me nuts with their lack of focus, tired a lot and sleep still disturbed, we’ll see whet my GP says on Thursday.
