This is my second bought of illness this winter… on the whole compared to others I’ve been lucky. Touch wood. Unfortunately as I’ve got to do my work on a phone I can’t work until my cough has abated. I’m trying to use the time productively – taking part in Minimal February. Though the things I’ve discarded are piling up by the door. I’m avoiding going out until I really have to so my chest has time to recover. I’m also crocheting a granny shawl scarf from one ball of sock yarn found under my bed. Tidying and decluttering does have some benefits. I call this comfort crafting perched in bed with blankets piled up and Miss F stomping in and out.
I’m trying and failing to make up for a lack of housework over the last one and a half months. I mean the basics have been done, clean clothes and clean dishes. But the backlog! i’ve scrubbed ineffectually at the shower.. this will be done again tomorrow I’m sure. Thrown a load of washing on, and thrown out two bags of rubbish. And and slowly gathering together recycling. I try and do as much before the light goes here as I really don’t like doing ANYTHING once its dark. Just to let you know that over on my facebuik page I’m trying to post one cheery Scottish Colourist picture a day. Currently its all Anne Redpath.
