WARNING: avoid if of a nervous disposition ;-)
To confirm what many have thought over the years - and one Very Famous Knitter in particular - I actually do appear to be full of shit.
Or at least I was until the last few days. Blimey, stomach upset and a half! That came on top of a really unpleasant week of Special Girl Time (as christened by my parroty friend), also out of the blue.
WARNING: GYNAE TALK AHEAD.
I am not supposed to get periods anymore, but nobody seems to have told my body that. AWFUL. A one woman black pudding factory. Pain pain pain, I have a sneaking suspicion the dreaded endometriosis is back. Pah to all of it. pah.
Had my usual blood tests / blood pressure checks on Thursday and mentioned it to the nurse, who said if the SGT comes back then I really need to see a Dr asap (history of cancer and endo), and that the shiteing oneself to death part was probably a nasty bug that's doing the rounds. I had Imodium and Dioralyte so now may never ever go again.
A Nasty Bug.
Throw in the RA pain and I am in danger of losing my sense of humour.
But at least I am not full of shit.
For now ...
Knitting has been happening on and off.
I am still enjoying the skelly bones cardi, one side (thankfully the second) is definitely better than the first and I have tweaked my (self drawn) chart accordingly.
I am hoping to finish the fronts today. One sleeve is finished:
Plus Spring seems to be here (even though there are big dark clouds outside)(and I just put my washing out).
My sitting area is also looking rather nice at the moment, worth every bit of back ache shifting things around!
This next bit is still a work in progress, the table (made by my friend Barry the Boat) needs shifting as the birds are finding it rather a good target.
And dyeing is happening, I have An Idea and quite possibly A Plan, whether or not they will work is debatabubble. If it stays dry I should be able to get some out on the line later on today and get a better idea of how accurate the colours are compared to what's in my head.
Enjoy the weekend.
