I love Fridays. They mean the weekend is nearly here! No school runs, no packed lunches to be made. Just time to relax and stitch! And who can resist a little panda? Not me, that's for sure!
I don't really have any crafts worth showing which is a disgrace!
Sort myself out or go to the naughty corner (with some stitching, a hot cup of tea and maybe a biscuit or two!).
My rug rugs have been sent to Kaye, Maggee and Tarja. Just two left to make (unless I have forgotten someone which is very easily possible: if it is you, please shout out!).
Dr has diagnosed my pains as being fibromyalgia, and then in the next breath told me he didn't believe in it. I simply told him to make his mind up and when he had a diagnosis he believed in, to let me in on it!
He also told me he didn't believe in M.E when I told him I had it quite badly in the early naughties (2002). I told him I didn't either but no amount of arguing persuaded one of the Uk's top neurologists to change their diagnosis of me, and it didn't get me out of my wheelchair any quicker!
Ah bless him.
I don't have M. E now: I got my fitness back through something called pacing which thanks to research in the USA meant I got out of the wheelchair.
I looked up Fibro (again from a non-Irish site) and it says surgeries can trigger the pain hot spots which explains why it only happens on my left side. And it describes the pain perfectly so I'm happy with that. I have no intention of doing anything about it. I just wanted to know what it was and now I will go back to ignoring it and getting on with my life.
I won't go into the mistakes this guy and his practice have made but this shows exactly what my usual appointments are like!
So what are my plans this weekend?
Well, firstly I'm going to ignore the cold I'm coming down with in the hopes my disdainful attitude will persuade it that it is wasting it's time trying to make me ill! No viral attention-seeking will work on me this weekend!
Secondly I have a new design I want to stitch: a sweet Victorian Maid which wasn't on my agenda but she popped out and so I will have to stitch her if I want any peace this weekend.
Oh my poor head! Maids and colds! All fighting for attention! Will I ever get a quiet life?
I have my craft group meeting this evening which will be wonderful.
And hopefully I will get a little time on my sewing machine....oh my how I love to sew!
And who knows, maybe a little crochet as well! And of course some wonderful cross stitch!
Firstly this morning though! Spinach to cut and blanch: cabbages to plant; 2 lbs of carrots worth of carrot cake to make and then....lunch to cook and hopefully, the rest of the day will be mine!
So what does a gal have to do to be sent to her naughty corner???
One last note: I will be doing the Irish 'virtual retreat' SAL chart in English too. There is still time to sign up and take part. Just look at my previous post. Three days starting the same chart and taking part in some fun activities which we can all share on my blog! I will give more information on Monday night xx
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for popping by! If you leave a comment, thank you xx Hopefully I will have a load of crafty makes to show you on Monday.
