The 4th of February.
I am cold and tired, and I think one is feeding the other. I don’t know why; I didn’t have a particularly bad night but maybe my body is just furious with me for trying to exercise. My back has been absolutely horrendous today, to the point where I still can’t even force myself to stand up straight.
This morning, I wrote up a blog post while watching Sunday Brunch, then I made the antlers, ears and arms of Heinz. I also put together a post on World Cancer Day, using some bits from the Anthony Nolan blog that they didn’t keep, and adding some extra paragraphs to make it more suitable for today.
After lunch, I went upstairs to get dressed (I couldn’t be arsed to get out of my pyjamas this morning) and take some photos wearing my Anthony Nolan Links badge for the blog post I then put up.
Back in the living room, I put Heinz together, and now all the Christmas dudes are finished! Off to Iceland they go.
The 5th of February.
My MRIs on Wednesday cannot come soon enough. Last night, my right arm and calf felt really heavy and swollen, and today it feels like something is being squeezed in the arm. I could blame it on the fact that I’ve been crocheting for a lot of today, but that’s no different to many other days when I haven’t felt like this.
This morning, I suddenly had no project to work on, so I decided to look at the jumper I started over a year ago before my arm swelled up. I’m far less keen on wearing the wool I used, so I unravelled it and instead I am using it to make a chunky cabled scarf like the one I made for Christine for Christmas. It’s going well, but my arms need a rest now.
This afternoon, my Edward’s Menagerie Dogs book arrived, so I won’t be short of projects for long. There are so many great patterns, I can’t wait to make them all, although some will be very wool-heavy and time-consuming.
Can’t believe it’s only a week until Still Standing. I do not expect my sleep pattern to be good until then.
