Dried Figs, Foxtel and the Flu.
I wish I could tell you I was better after two days in bed… Sorry Kris… and everyone… I’m still down.
Temperature still there, cough is impressive and I’m still way too pale for anyone’s taste. I was told to stay where I was, and I have remained there… obedient to command.
So I’ve spent the day in bed, phone turned off, and occaisionally marvelling over the stunning SCHTOOPIDITY of Foxtel. We only have a few channels (paid for by the Client) and I have to say that Discovery Channel’s fetish for programs where a dysfunctional group of people are doing something to a motorvehicle or bike gets mindnumbing after a while.
Not to mention the flagrant safety issues. Lets talk about the guy in the spray boot without the respirator, or safety glasses. The idiots welding without eye protection.
In between guffaws, sneezes and naps, I have crocheted a little and so have some progress to show you on Arcadia’s Hatchling’s Stripghan.
And it’s going to be a fun job – sewing it all together! As previously mentioned, I am trying to make the roses all different so it’s more fun for a little girl. And Arcadia – it’s ok – I have done more strips than I’ve shown!
For those who like to know, it’s a plain 8ply superwash wool from Lincraft. It does run very nicely off the hook and I’m using a 5mm hook and I’m actually quite irrationally in love with it. It’s aluminium but it’s got some weight behind it….
But I can only do a little in between feeling like crap.
As a small bright spot, (warning: Yarnporn!) a package of 9 balls of a grape Mohair arrived… and I couldn’t resist…
Yes, Avatar III!
Otherwise… thank you all for your concerns (and also for the emails), I have been eating properly, and snacking on dried figs, dried strawberries (yes really!) and have drunk two 1litre bottles of water. I will shortly get up and go across for dinner but that will take some enthusiasm which I just don’t have yet…..
It’s pouring outside:
So – time for me to go back to bed….
I would hug you but I don’t want to give you this lurgy!
Bye for now!
