Podcast Episode 10 – Where I’ve Been & What I’ve Been Up To!

OK OK! I really should have done a podcast before now! You will understand how ill I’ve been. I’ve also been really stressed with everything over the last few months. Getting up in the morning and putting one foot in front of the other has been really difficult enough without thinking about anything else. Now I’m settled and I’m thinking more about other things, I feel like I’m ready to move on and start podcasting again! So what have I been up to?!?!?

Trying Something New & Having Fun!

While we were sorting out our old house recently, I found lots of jars of yarn ends around the place like discarded ornaments of yesteryear.

Erica’s Cowl Inspiration, Details & a Few Random Thoughts

It wasn’t until RiverSystem told me he’d handed the keys back that I realised how much the stress of the last few months has had on me mentally and physically. As soon as the keys went back, it felt like a cloud lifted from my brain and I could think clearly for the first time in months and months. Since my bad fall in September really! I haven’t even wanted to knit or crochet or anything.

Self Care Craft Along – #SelfCareCAL

Self Care is NOT selfish! It’s not making excuses to get out of necessities. It’s not hiding from responsibilities. It’s taking responsibility for your own well being and making sure you have the reserves you need to get through the priorities in life. It’s taking an hour out of your day to make sure you can get through the rest of the week.

Podcast Episode 9 – Hospital Trips and Pom-Poms.

I’m so grateful to Sheena from The Mermaid’s Purse. I used the Eco4ply in the Plankton colourway. I wasn’t going to have enough and she had the perfect solution! An almost solid blue skein that matched perfectly!

The last month has been overshadowed by me getting used to being on antipsychotics again. I’m a bit frustrated with myself because I thought I’d be able to cope without them.  I thought I’d be able to get through this low patch with the right care and attention but I couldn’t. I know… Continue reading Podcast Episode 8 – Taking Some Time Out For Me
