Thank goodness for Julie, Mr Stick and the girls - it's like having your very own cheerleading team to keep you motivated and focused each week and the amount of finishes the group has had as a whole are really mounting up now. :0)
Tuesday's plan to sit watching Dawn Bibby whilst stitching didn't quite happen because five minutes after sitting down I was fast asleep and didn't wake up again until shortly before my DS got in from work, around 4.30pm. DH was happy - I can't spend when I'm asleep, so it saved him a few quid LOL. I had a similar experience last night too: about fifteen minutes after having my tea I dropped off for an hour or so. It must be something about having my feet up that's doing it. ;0) The upshot of that is that ME is the only piece I've managed any stitching on in the last couple of days. I guess it's my body's way of telling me what's needed but so much for having lots more stitching time! LOL
Many thanks for all the good wishes concerning my leg, they were greatly appreciated...... especially as my two haven't seemed to grasp the possiblity of serious problems resulting from this (it was really nice of them to leave a huge pile of pots in the sink and expect me to stand there and wash them all, wasn't it?!). I'm glad to say that the antibiotics seem to be doing their thing as the redness isn't as obvious, much of the heat has gone out of it and it doesn't seem to have spread any further (touch wood!) - I've still got some discomfort and my foot and lower leg are still swollen but I guess that will take a bit longer to subside. I'll still be taking it easy though, as I don't want to end up over-doing things and triggering it into flaring up again. Karen: the redness didn't go up my leg but travelled around my ankle area and down my foot and I kept getting prickling sensations in the sole (boy, did that feel weird!).
It's Sea Stars SAL day again. Yay! Hopefully I won't fall asleep after my tea tonight, so I can make a good start on the bigger motif in the top right corner. Tomorrow night I'm hoping to feel fit enough to go for that night out to the theatre to see Tomb With A View, the show that our DS is stage managing for Group 62 - could do with a laugh. Fingers crossed
Right now though I'm off to get my feet up again...... maybe do the final bit of finishing on the Challenge piece
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit and especially for commenting, it's very much appreciated. Hope you're all having a lovely day. :0)
