I haven’t had the op yet and I’ve not been away, and I’ve not given up blogging either but I have been a trifle distracted lately…. the op (total knee replacement on the 24th of this month) is playing on my mind rather and it’s been hard to concentrate on anything that isn’t related to it/involving it/tangentially something to do with it….for example
- I have organised my post-op wardrobe – no skinny jeans for me for a while (if you’ve ever looked at my insta-feed – joatvillagewoolly – you’ll realise that I don’t really do outfits that don’t involve skinny jeans. This is a bit of a wrench. To put it mildly. But I have (wo)manned up and I now have a wardrobe full of clean clothes and an outfit to come home in…..
- I am tidying cupboards – any cupboard. Just in case anyone who isn’t me has to go find something. Oh dear god – my house will be at the mercy of all these menfolk – help!
- I am worrying…. a lot…. about how I will fill all those hours when I will be obliged to sit on my ass – with no access to my car, my sewing machine (foot pedals are going to be a no-no) or my desk…
- ….and in consequence I have started organising a lot of knitting. I currently have around six projects bagged up (with patterns in cute bags) ready to go. There are 2 half socks, two shawls, two sweaters and a blanket…ok, seven projects ready to go. Not to mention a kinda pattern that I’m half working on (oh, eight projects) plus the unfinished/on a break bits and bobs that every knitter has (a Cline for example. And half a mitten set that stalled when Spring sprang). Which brings us up to a round dozen…. there’s an argument that by the time I finish this lot I won’t just be recovered, I will be nearly 70 years old.
Anyways – I most probably won’t be around so much for a while but naturally I will be knitting, and when I’m back at the computer I hope you’ll keep me company again.
Ta ta for now.
Here’s some pretty pictures from recent travels with Vanda and friends…
