The 24th & 25th; Well done me!
The 24th of October.
Oh, I am finished. All three blankets are finally done. I literally just finished weaving in the ends, after working on it most of today.
This morning, I wrote up a blog post, then got on the crochet. Mommy made some biscuits, and after lunch, I sat at the dining table and did a bit of icing on them. I thought flooding might be a bit much for my liver, but just doing the details would be okay. Cat faces and ducks.
For the rest of the afternoon, I just worked on the blanket. Alison actually came over for a bit, but I couldn't quite get it done while she was still here. Never mind. My Christmas wool will probably arrive tomorrow (I expect while we're out) so I can start on those projects.
Going to see if I can climb half the stairs tonight.
The 25th of October.
Well, I had a kind of weird start to the day - it seems that one of my nails is trying to die? As in, it seems to lift and is discoloured. I don't understand why - the last time this kind of thing happened, I was having chemo (they all died and fell off, it was a very bizarre experience). Not doing anything like that now.
I had one wool delivery from the Hermes man, but then we had to go out to hospital for my blood test. Sara wasn't there today, it was a different nurse called Jen but she was equally competent. I asked her about my diet, and she is going to talk to James and the dietitian for some advice, which is sorely needed as I got on the scales this morning and I've lost a pound, so I'm less than I was when I came home.
Afterwards, we went into town for errands. I had to get some boring stuff like cotton wool pads, hand cream and top coat, then we went to Hotel Chocolat to get Daddy a retirement present. Mommy went to look in Primark for jumpers for Grandma, and I went to Foyles where I bought two books - Brit(ish) by Afua Hirsch and If Cats Disappeared From The World by Genki Kawamura. I wanted to buy the new Haruki Murakami book, but I refrained. I'll get someone to buy it for me for Christmas. Then we had lunch in John Lewis of butternut squash and sweet potato soup and cinder toffee brownie, and I made friends with a fun baby. Finally, we had to look at bins, because the lid on the kitchen bin is broken, and they are very expensive!
Back home, two other wool packages have gone back to the sorting office, so tomorrow we'll have to go there!
(I did climb half the stairs. Well done me!)
