This is a two week post up for me today. It is hard to write or blog when the world around you is sad, and when you are also sick. Last week I spent the vast majority of it in bed, sleeping, unwell. Facebook and the news was a full mixture of negativity and positivity. Lots of posts around the Women’s March which had just happened around the world, appeared to divide my Facebook friends and then a week later the protests at US Airports divided the country I live in – again, and for sure not the last time. Bluntly, I am sad. When I am sad and also sick I do not want to do anything, so couldn’t be bothered to write my weekly post. I had my first days off sick from work, but when I returned the following week lots of the children and parents I work with told me they missed me. This really helped my low mood.
My mother in law arrived for a 3 week visit on the 2nd of February and that has also cheered me somewhat. I can’t lounge around being miserable even though I am still quite wiped from this cold, cough, sickness thing I caught. My throat and voice is still not back to normal which is tough when I spend my working job singing!
Here are my photos from the last 2 weeks, with a brief sentence.
Day 22 – Bulk colouring with my Spectrum Noir pens so I can make cards more quickly!
Day 23 – Sick day so Epsom Salts are my go to love.
Day 24 – Both Marie and Max managed to get a cat-nip bag each, and take them into separate rooms. I found Marie on the bed hugging hers and Max in his Shark Bed licking his. Wierdos.
Day 25 – Stupidly went to work and left early as still sick. Got into bed, sneezing so the cats went as close as they felt safe!
Day 26 – Vision Board is still not completed, this is the current favourite snooze spot for Marie.
Day 27 – Sick on the couch and I couldn’t find Max, when I called his name he stuck his paw out of the shark!
Day 28 – Hubster brought me some calligraphy pens for Christmas so I finally brought a book and paper for me to practice and learn.
Day 29 – New Yarn! We went for a drive, and on the way back we ended up driving past Ben Franklin’s! I have a shawl I wanted to make myself for my works auction in March. Its a challenge, and needed some thin yarn. I treated myself to these two balls. Fingers crossed I can make it in time!
Day 30 – Colouring still, and I have completed my Spectrum Noir set! I love a completed set, whether its a set of books, stamps – I have all the princess set from one of the shops I buy from! – or pens! Completed sets are nice.
Day 31 – A local lady made some Elderberry Syrup and was selling it. It is meant to be good for your immune system and as I take medication as a last resort, I though I would support a local person and buy from her and try something new. It is organic elderberries, local organic honey, cinnamon and ginger. Tastes quite nice!
Day 32 – My mother in law is visiting, and as we only have 2 bedrooms I’ve moved my desk from the “Den” into our bedroom along with any crafting things I might need. So I’ve moved Hubster’s lego display around so I can use some of the shelves too!
Day 33 – Me and Hubster go climbing and have just started a Lead Climbing Course. This is the little rope we have to use this week to clip in as we go up the top rope routes to practice! Exciting and scary. I was exhausted at the end of class. 2 more weeks to go!
Day 34 – Sometimes our cats smell from the litter, and we struggle to get their knots out too. When I really can’t brush them through I take them up for a bath and groom! This is handsome Max with his bow-tie once we got home. They smell of coconut now and are knot free 😀
Day 35 – I fit into my favourite shorts! High waisted ones too! We’ve changed our diet a bit since Christmas. I don’t understand what we’ve changed but something to do with how long it takes from sugars to be absorbed into the body. I still get to eat everything I love though! Cheese, chocolate, crisps etc etc we just have added more things in too.
I’m having a wander around the other blogs here
