I had cellulitis again too, while we were staying with my son and daughter in law and little grandson, so once more I had to go to Hemel Hemsted hospital for antibiotics, I have finished them now but couldn't carry on with my crochet or do much until it had healed up again, I hope it has healed up completely, I'm not sure it has totally gone.
Anyway now I am sitting here with a numb mouth due to toothache which kept me up all night, and I have some pain relief inserted into the tooth after an emergency dental appointment this afternoon and it seems I have an irreversible infection on the nerve and I will be having root canal treatment. I also have bad sciatica in my left leg and the same pain in my arm (arm sciatica??), so a lot of pain and none of this relates to the problem I mentioned.
The photo above is part way through decluttering magazines, I couldn't just pick up the pile and dump them could I? I had to flick through in case there is something "vital" I need, and the open mags around the space are those with something that interested me. So take out the pages and file them I hear you say, been there done that and ended up with files full of pages I never look at again so I have decided I need to try all of the things here then chuck the magazine away. I did get rid of a pile of mags about 2 foot high! I have an idea, which might not happen - if I can dig my way to the box of offcuts I can either put the box of yarn under it (that's the easy option, I can do that for sure), OR I can give all of the offcuts to the neighbour for the school to use (shock horror) and fill the box with more yarn.
I have decided that the ideal solution would be to get that Really Useful Storage mini unit that you use as a desk and it expands to double the size when you work and is full of RUBs which all of the stuff on the desk could go into. BUT it costs a lot of money, not sure I can justify it at the moment lol, and what about all of the stuff under the current desk, where would that go?
The other side of the desk, I have dropped a few things that need picking up again - can you tell? There are lots of things still to be sorted and put away, mostly stamps.
If I had that lovely Really Useful unit how tidy it all could be...........
I bought a couple of balls of that novelty ripple scarf yarn at a show, it was only £1 a ball, not sure I really like these scarves and I wasn't happy when halfway though there was a knot in the yarn, but I carried on until I hit a broken part! I had to undo it, check the whole thing and start again and I had to use the whole ball or it would have been too short, knots and all.
Have I shown you this before? Apologies if I have. A friend's daughter is expecting any day now, and we don't know the gender so I hope this 12 pointed star blanket in contemporary colours will be acceptable for either boy or girl and I hope it is big enough, I tried it on Captain Cuddles. Pattern was from Inside Crochet, I didn't add the pom poms to each point for H&S reasons.
Hop on over to The Stamping Ground if you want to go on the best desk hop around.
