At Home

Oh hello, I know back again. so soon!
What's going on?
Well I have a little bit more time on my hands at the moment. 
I'm signed off from work while the doctors try to discover why I seem to have been unable to shake off the Christmas flu!  I spent weeks trying to carry on as normal until I just felt so ill I had to see the doctor, where obviously I wept and wailed about how ill I felt. One doctor said it was all perfectly ok, I just kept picking up colds from the children at school, (really for three months) I stayed home for a week resting, sleeping, then went back to work and felt even worse. Back I went to the doctors and saw a lovely lady who immediately said "that's not right you shouldn't feel that ill, lets get you tested!" I was relieved to have someone acknowledge that how I felt wasn't normal!
So blood has been removed from my arm (yuk) and 
I await the results of blood tests. The doctor thinks it could be a thyroid problem (easyish to fix) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (not so easy to fix!) I'm hoping it's the first scenario if it has to be any!
On the up side I have time at the moment to browse the internet and dabble in some of my favourite crafts, interspersed with loads of sleeping, so much more comforting under a crochet blanket
I knew I made them for a reason LOL!

We take our health so much for granted don't we and when things go a little wonky it's such a shock! 
It's been really hard to get used to not doing SO much, actually it's driving me a bit mad having to choose one thing to do as too much wipes me out and planning cooking and shopping has been an absolute nightmare, thank goodness for Lovely Man and Heather who have held the fort magnificently.
I'm really concentrating on looking after myself, good food, rest, no stress,
 vitamins galore and gentle exercise.
I'm also torturing myself by sewing in the ends of my Jewel Bright blanket.

Oh goodie another blanket to snuggle under!
I've really enjoyed catching up on my blog reading too and seeing what all you lovely people have been up to, such a creative and talented bunch!
Thanks for visiting, I rambled a bit today!
Take care look after yourselves.
See you all soon
Love

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …
