This week


Hello..........


This week I enjoyed joining in with the World Wildlife Funds 'Earth hour' on Saturday evening it was lovely to turn off the lights and electrical appliances and spend a hour without, great to step away from the screens, this year I played my mandolin for a bit,


Then spent the rest of the hour relaxing, in the soothing darkness, with just a few candles burning.

It was lovely to watch the patterns cast by my butterfly candle.



For the last few weeks I have been trying to follow Dr Walhs diet, of eating 9 cups of fruit and veg a day, it's surprisingly hard to fit it all in, three cups of greens, three cups of colourful and three cups sulphurous veg.

In the hope it might improve some of my symptoms, my blood sugar levels seem to be happier for it, although so far I'm not feeling any better with my energy levels and pain.



This week I was skippy happy to discover this beauty in the summerhouse border, super frilly double daffodils


I also spent time earlier in the week re pinning my Springtime wreath ready for the Equinox last Sunday.  I love how ever year I add something new to the wreath so it's always slightly different.

It's been up all week waiting for the Easter decorations to join in.


Talking of which I finished putting them up today, a bit of a dizzy making job for me as standing with my arms above my head tends to make my POTS so much worse, so it took a while to hang up the eggs.


Here's a closer look at some of the decorations, the tiny crocheted pieces were a Easter gift from a friend, who got them from a very talented crafter me thinks. It was also good to see my Attic24 chicks again.

Happy Hoppy Easter

  3. Lovely spring wreath! I have started a winter wreath that only has three Christmas trees on it right now but my plan is to add something new to it each year, as a tradition.

  12. Such beautiful Easter and spring crafts.
    I spent the weekend with my niece who is living with POTS. She is a sophomore in high school, and I am so proud of her for keeping her grades up and doing some school clubs. I know it is very hard.
    That diet sounds SO healthy. I should try it. This weekend was all about sugar. Now I feel lumpy. I know I shouldn't indulge like that!
