It's year of happy time again, it's been a bit of a struggle this week, to find 'three things', my health has been very poor and at one point earlier in the week I thought it very unlikely I'd be able to find three things from the week that made me happy. I've spent most of the week in bed feeling very unwell, I did go out to a local support group on Wednesday, but it left me feeling so exhausted ill and dizzy (my balance has gone again) it's no way to live in your 30's barely able to leave the house, without a huge flare up of symptoms as payback.
It's very hard to explain how very ill a ME/Lyme disease flare can make you feel, I guess it like having the worst flu every x 100 with added extra symptoms, at it worst if seems to effect every system in your body. Sunday I think was the worst I've ever felt in twenty four years of illness. I'm waiting for two consultant appointments to come through at the moment and I just hope that they can help. Although I have to be realistic, as there is no effective treatment for ME and Chronic Lyme disease is a even bigger problem to face, as it's simply not recognised. Any road sorry about the doom and gloom, not sure where that came from, this is supposed to be a HAPPY post.
Number one :
OK. so number one this week is new yarn, I mean whats not to love. I started a stash buster make this week all I needed was couple of new colours to add to the mix, and here they are a Pretty Purple and a Grey.
Seeing as it was 'I love yarn day' on Friday it would have been rude not to indulge in a bit of yarny retail therapy. Who am I kidding, everyday is Yarn appreciation day here at the Summerhouse.
I'd been meaning all week to take a photo of this gorgeous Rose, that was blooming in the front garden, but just didn't have the energy to go outside with the camera. It was a very windy day here on Thursday with the wind whistling through, the wheelie bins and recycling crates all blowing over, around the street. The wind we so strong it snapped this beauty off, 'P' rescued it from the front lawn. A little battered but still
so gorgeous, the Rose bush it's from is still covered in blooms outside despite the Autumnal weather, it's amazing how resilient nature can be.
Is my new found love of embroidery, I've been able to do a little bit more of my blossom tree this week, plus I remembered there was a lovely sparkly thread in my sewing box, that would be the perfect addition Yippee. I'm hoping I'll be able to complete this little tree by my stitching Sunday post, which might be a bit late this week, but I'll get there.
Well that's all the happy for this weeks.
