The 8th & 9th; I am a grandma.
The 8th of February. I am so tired of spending every morning coughing, over and over, having to bring up crap from my lungs repeatedly. It takes hours to subside. I haven't got an appointment for Andrew's clinic next week yet, so tomorrow I'll have to ring the lady I spoke to last week again.
It's been another rather nothing day. I have crocheted two coaster-type things, although they're a bit big so are more like doilies. I am a grandma.
We watched another episode of Case - it's only on All 4 so we have to be proactive in watching it, otherwise we'll forget and I do want to know what happens. I find it difficult to tell all the blonde Icelandic girls apart; they all look so similar. There's another, similar drama starting soon called The Team so hopefully they're different enough for us to keep them separate in our minds.
Nothing else. Just want to be back to normal size. I'm doing a talk for some Marrow volunteers next week and it would be so nice if I didn't have to wear an enormous jumper but I suspect I will.
The 9th of February.
So it seems 2017 is the year I become a pensioner, as I've made about five doilies in the past two days. They're my new scarf - when I'm bored and have no larger project, make a coaster/doily.
This morning, I made a purple coaster, and this afternoon, I did a larger, doily-type one while listening to 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields. They have such a wealth of material, I wish I'd known about them back when they might have toured.
I had several phone calls to the hospital, trying to make sure I was going to get an appointment for Andrew's clinic next week. I talked to the lady from last week, but she had no paperwork about me, so then I spoke to his secretary who was able to sort it out very efficiently and I'll be seeing him next week. Apparently the compression garment people have me on their list as needing one urgently but still no idea when that might progress.
This evening I had another Cats Protection meeting, although this week's was not as long and I have no jobs to do. I am good at being the host, providing biscuits and doing admin.
