The 6th & 7th; I am not going mad.
The 6th of September. Well, I am not going mad, nor am I doing the crochet wrong. I did some research online, found the pattern on another website, and discovered there are corrections on there! It would have been nice to have had them upon purchase but at least I have them now.
I have been exhausted all day, because I just could not get to sleep last night until after half past two. I've had about half my usual amount of sleep and I cannot cope. Zopiclone tonight.
I couldn't even try to sleep in because I was at Black Sheep at half nine to have my hair changed. Full bleach, now it is purple with white streaks, although they are not really visible at the moment. If they don't emerge when I wash it, then I can call and get Adam to lighten sections. We had some good chats today, about pug rehab, hair paint brushes, Bake Off, and we got very nostalgic trying to explain the brilliance of Borders to a member of staff too young to remember it.
That was my whole morning, and this afternoon I took a lot of selfies, then had one of my rest-naps. Came back downstairs about half past three, from which point I have done a blog post and worked on this difficult jumper.
The 7th of September.
I am sleepy again this evening, but that's alright because it's down to having Zopiclone last night. Thankfully it worked, and I had a beautifully long sleep.
I stayed in my pyjamas to begin with this morning, and once I'd finished my breakfast and coffee, I went upstairs to try on two dresses I had ordered as potential Christmas dresses. They are the same; one red, one green. Keeping the green one, red going back. Glad to have that sorted. Then I gave my hair a rinse - lots of purple water, but no white streaks have emerged, so I sent Sophie at Black Sheep a message and she's booked me in for 9.15 in Tuesday morning to have Adam lighten some larger panels.
This afternoon, I've just been curled up, cosy in my chair. I watched Coraline, and had a go at the large cable pattern that's in the complicated jumper. I've ordered some finer wool to try to make it properly, and I'm hoping that arrives tomorrow. There are so many knitted patterns that I like - I gave up on knitting a long time ago but I think I could learn to do it. If I do, that could become a dangerous habit. No more space in my wardrobe.
