I have written a couple more posts and then not posted them. This is becoming quite ridiculous. I go back to work on Monday and the gloom is descending. If you could see inside my mind right now, you would run for cover.
Update 1: I am ok. I think. I have not actually tried lifting or carrying anything at all for 3 weeks, so we will see what happens when I try to cart that laptop etc about next week. Lolling about like Lady Muck has been an interesting experience. Being driven all over the place has also been interesting. I am the world's worst passenger. Have I used all that lolling time well? Absolutely not. I am very good at diversionary tactics. What was that??? I can't hear you....lahlahlahlahlah....(sticking fingers in ears in a particularly grown-up fashion.)
Update 2: We still have no hot water. So my son is the chief water carrier around here. I live in a civilised world. I have friends coming back from holidays soon, who know all about hot water. I like useful friends.
Update 3: I have yet to start on the bathroom. But I do believe that my friend, Louise, and I have decided that we are intelligent, practical, logical women who can conquer new bathrooms. One day. And the fact that she has a builder brother who loves his sister dearly and would run to help if we were sitting on a fountain of water yelling help in a loud fashion has absolutely NOTHING to do with our confident decision to do it ourselves. David would provide the muscle. He knows nothing of this yet, by the way.
Update 4: I have been good and have not sewn the quilts. It is unbelievably frustrating. I did try a little embroidery but that was not very bright of me at all. So I stopped.
Update 5: I have fallen in love with the Elm Creek Quilt novels. I want to move to Pennsylvania tomorrow. I specialised in American History for my degree way back in the dark ages, and the combination of the love I have of quilting and the period of history which fascinates me most being combined in a story is just perfect for me.
Update 6: Andrew and Ann returned from their holiday in Hong Kong safely. They had a wonderful time, and can't wait to go back and explore more, and go further afield.
And, as I am not going to post those other posts, that is it for now. The couch is calling, and so is my book. It has just occurred to me that the one thing we all have in common, people, is that we all love reading. We wouldn't be here if we didn't. You can't love writing if you don't love words. And if you love words, you love reading them.
