We had a nice Bank Holiday Weekend (three-day weekend) here, the weather actually warmed up — rather too fast IMO — and the sun has been coming out more than in the last nine months put together. Which has actually made photography a little difficult, I’m not used to full, bright sun!
Anyway, important reminder: My 5K walk for Fibromyalgia research is on Saturday so please donate now! If you are new to this blog, Fibro is one of the many diseases that I have and walking 5K is well beyond my normal limits but it was important for me to do this as it’s a very worthy cause. You can read more about my struggle on the donation page linked above.
So meanwhile, back to other things. We went to the National History show which was genealogy, archaeology and military history all together in one Expo. Once again I was shocked that no scrapbooking suppliers were there as that seems like a great audience. We saw some of the Time Team members (Tim, Tony and Phil) doing various presentations and generally found out about new stuff out for the genealogy market, etc. The only thing we bought was mead from Three Drunken Monks but then we went to the huge Whole Foods in Kensington to stock up on supplies.
I’m still recovering from that day even though I was in the chair. I also seem to have come down with some kind of stomach virus which is unpleasant to say the least. So my crafting has been pretty minimal. I made two coffee cozies (which I would show you but my camera doesn’t like bright sun apparently, the colours went all weird) and started a legwarmer for a friend but I started getting hotspots on my fingers so had to give it a rest. When I can’t knit or do something productive I feel guilty or at least out of sorts while sitting and watching tv or movies but sometimes my body just needs the rest and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I’m off to lay down again and get more rest. I need to plan the route for Saturday’s walk ASAP and just spend the week resting up that’s going to be very, very taxing. But I have so much crafting to be done in the next few weeks that I’m already feeling the stress and need to get things done for the sake of my brain,so we’ll just have to see what I can manage in between naps!
