Easy does it

Today was a little calmer. I'm still without my laptop and it's more than a little infuriating. My mum's very kindly loaned me some money and I ordered a shiney new laptop a couple hours ago.  Today I wrote a little post about a quilt I made for my niece's second birthday. Actual numbers are less than accurate … Continue reading Easy does it

A Newsletter 

Today was a work day, so pretty difficult to write anything creative. However, I did put out a newsletter for Crafty Sew & So. I forgot to check the word count but I reckon it was around 500 words. The co-owner, who's been away on maternity leave, came in for a quick craft session with her … Continue reading A Newsletter 

Sewing and blogging

Just a little blog post today as it's been a very good but exhausting. I had a great day out at a blogger's meet up hosted by Sew Essential. It was so much fun! I started a sweet little embroidery project and had a lovely time chatting with fellow stitcher's. I will have to rest … Continue reading Sewing and blogging

Ho-Hum

I only wrote the first couple of sentences of a chapter today. I'm finding it very difficult to get started again. The screen hurts my eyes. Yesterday  we did the first stock take at Crafty. I spent the day counting buttons. It all sounds very fun, but after the first five tubes or so my … Continue reading Ho-Hum

Disrupted Routine.

I am a creature of habit, or perhaps more accurately, habit and routine are important aspects of my recovery. The times in my life when my routine is disrupted, inevitably lead to heightened anxiety. That has not changed through my recovery. What has changed is the way I deal with that anxiety. I now know … Continue reading Disrupted Routine.

If only my body would work

I finished the lovely little post for Crafty Sew & So's blog, to be published on Sunday. I'm feeling pretty drained today. My Asthma acted up last night, quite badly, and so today my throat and chest have been aching all day. Kick boxing, although fun, includes a lot of cardio which my lungs do not … Continue reading If only my body would work

We are Super heroes

Today at Crafty Freya and I had a wonderful time thinking up a story about two women, who happened to be called Rebekah and Freya, becoming superheroes after learning kick boxing together.  Freya then became my arch nemesis. I loved the story so much I couldn't help but write it down when I got in.I … Continue reading We are Super heroes

The Lobsters of Social Media

Today's work on my novel was cursory at best,  just a little bit of shifting around, I'm trying not to become too embarrassed at my clumsy first draft. Wednesdays are always busy. Story & Rhyme time in the morning and Crafty in the afternoon. We have got a load of really nice fabrics in today which needed … Continue reading The Lobsters of Social Media

Today I Crushed the Patriarchy

On the bus ride home from Crafty there where two obnoxious men (I later learned they where thirty) making themselves the centre of attention. I heard choice lines, over my music, such as 'Sixteen? Legal, that's perfect' and 'which one of you is the good one and which is the naughty one.' I was feeling uncomfortable … Continue reading Today I Crushed the Patriarchy
