A little quiet

I just wanted to explain why I have been a little quite and why there may be a delay in writing posts/replies. I had a very rough night on the Friday just gone and an ambulance was called for me Saturday morning. I refused to go into hospital (it always makes me sicker) so after consultations I’m being treated at home. I’ve finally been given stronger pain medication, which is helping a bit and a few tests/assessments are being fast-tracked. I’m exhausted, frustrated and my immunity is very low but I hope I can post/comment soon as talking to you all helps to make me feel a little better. I’ll pop in and out when I can.

In the meantime this little one has been a wonderful nurse and is keeping close to me.

Down but for the animals

I will keep this brief as I don’t want this blog to be full of woe and i’ll just write this post as a means to explain my absence. I’ve been off work since October 2014 due to a massive Flare but without warning work sent me my P45 (terminated my contract). I was devastated as I spent many years building my strength so that I would be able to work and for three years I had managed to do so (even if only part-time) but now I have had to go back on state assistance and I hate it! I’m still unable to work so I feel completely useless. Crafting is my cling-to activity when I’m flaring as it’s a good distraction from the pain and I can do some form of it even when I’m in pain but its been so bad recently that I have only just this week-end been able to complete small projects. Despite being unable to craft the one or (three things) I have through the dark days and sunny nights are my animals. They always watch over me and Keats (my dog) is especially good at stroking my hair and head when I can’t sleep for the pain (he literally does that). So here is to the animals!

Number 1 on The modern Girl’s Guide is get yourself something cute and furry (even if it’s just a cuddly toy).

These are my fur babies:
