Here is this weeks pic:
I saw a doctor on Thursday; I’m suffering from restless legs (“do stretches & drink more water”), sleeping propped on sofa due to my back (“that’s fine, the French used to sleep sat up”), panic attacks (“you have a lot going on right now”) and […]
Oops, a day or so late, but here’s Week 12:
On Monday, I called the letting agent to report we had a fence panel coming down. I gave Isis a haircut and discovered she was in season and I wrote to the DLA.

On Friday I felt absolutely awful and I actually spent the entire day lying on the sofa […]
A few weeks ago, we went to the New Forest, on the way home we went to Queen Elizabeth Country Park and Wingham Wool was there. I bought loads of cashmere and some dye.
Because I don’t want to wreck my cashmere, I thought I’d experiment with some English Wool Blend first that Karen gave […]
