Sorry about the lack of posts but I now find that I have been fighting viral pheumonia, which my husband brought back from Ireland, and a dose of pleurisy. These viruses certainly took my name at the beginning of 2018 and have just kept on. Still, I am still here and as the song says,
"I get knocked down but get up again, they are never going to keep me down".
I just wish this RSI injury would hurry up and heal, I so miss my stitching. But at the moment my focus is getting to a point where I can go on my trip to Thialand. That is 6 weeks away, I can eat again and that was the greatest difficulty I had to over come. One plus to not eating was the amount of weight I have lost. I am back to a size 12 again (from a size 18). The down side is I have had to give all my clothes to St. Vinnies and buy new ones. Next is being able to handle the pain and then the tiredness. I have cancelled all my teaching and only have a couple of judging commitments. Getting ready for this trip is my No 1 commitment.
Thinking about the trip has made me realise that I will have to get all my Xmas postage ready before I leave! Maybe I will not send presents this year? And then I have thought about leaving this house for my children to use for the holidays and my husband and I just taking to the road for a while? Hopefully by then I will be able to stitch again. Still, the old brain is working again, and the RSI has improved so that I can type without my shoulder freezing up. So maybe the stitching may return even sooner?
