I had every intention of posting a craft post this week.
Instead, I am waiting purposefully for some energy to return. I came across that phrase recently, listening to the wonderful Saga Land by Richard Fildler and Kari Gislason. It describes perfectly the kind of waiting you do whilst fishing or (I think) recovering from illness.
Just when you think you are almost a normal person, CFS/ME likes to give you a bit of whack around the head to remind you about pacing, being careful, going slow blah blah. Over the last week, I’ve had various kids sick, the dog sick, parent/teacher information nights, an indigo vat success and miscellaneous family errands to run and now I find myself unable to walk in a straight line. Making school lunches this morning was like getting through a physics exam when you studied for geography and any kind of moving feels like dragging someone’s else body up a muddy hill.
So sorry, no tales of Tuff Socks or natural dyeing derring do this week, I reckon I can manage to stick one photo in and that’s my limit. See you next week, bonny and blithe.
