So…a visit to the doctor on Tuesday morning decided my participation in KCW. Another course of antibiotics with a side order of steroids. Both in bigger doses than before. Eugh! I started taking them immediately and by Tuesday afternoon was feeling even more out of sorts than before. The lovely side effects of dizziness and insomnia meant that by yesterday morning I was fit for nothing but sitting on the sofa knitting and hand sewing.
It does mean that I’ve made progress on some mitts I’m knitting as a favour for a friend:
But the sewing loft is closed for the time being. I’m fine with that.
And whilst I knit and stitch and watch movies, I’m dreaming of our wedding anniversary weekend in November, because Alice-who-isn’t-a-cat and Ma and the Stitches-in-law are treating us to dinner.
But not any old dinner…nooooooooooo! Dinner at the scene of the original crime!
I may have wept with joy when I opened the envelope. It’s such a wonderful treat and a complete surprise.
We are very, very, VERY excited…as you can imagine. And, with a fair wind and a bucket load of drugs, I’ll be feeling fine by then.
In the meantime, I’m off to the sofa. I have mitts to knit! But…I’l leave you with cute cats. Just because I can. And they’ll make you smile. Which is a good thing, no?
