Rock Bottom

I feel absolutely useless today. Tired beyond belief. I think the last two weeks of struggling on despite back pain have taken their toll. That and nightmares last night. (No idea what that was about but I woke in the night struggling for breath, with heart pounding and blood racing and shouting “I’m not having that!“) Anyway, today I appear to be useless. I have been sat here since I got up, trying to write an article about making socks but my brain simply will not function. Not one useful thought in it. There’s a Norby hat in front of me (and a Norie, but that’s another story – one is growing, t’other is shrinking.) and it requires but a handful of shaping rows to see it done. I think about picking it up but then a wave of exhaustion overcomes me.

The handspun sock is all but dry – can I be bothered to go and find my camera? You guess.

I need a jolly good kick in the pants. Please deliver.

On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
