The alternative title to this post should really be How to drive Paula slowly insane. For the past month or so I've been having pain in one of my heels which I ignored as sore feet can be a bit of an occupational hazard as a nurse. That was a very stupid thing to do as it got a lot worse about 10 days ago and my foot decided to balloon up. One trip to the doctor later and I've been told I've got Plantar fascitis, which is an inflammation of ligament in the sole of the foot and its blooming sore. So I'm under orders not to go to work until next Tuesday at least and I've got to see my GP then. I've been referred for physiotherapy also. Meantime, I'm spending a lot of time sitting down and taking painkillers. I've never been off sick for this long before and whilst extra stitching time is good, the not going to work/not being able to go anywhere is not a good thing. Especially when my sister is getting married in just over 2 weeks and there are things to do and things to buy. Internet shopping is my friend just now.
Anyway enough of the pity party as I'm otherwise healthy and happy and other people have many more problems than me. Also I've got lots of hobbies that involve sitting down lol.
There's been some knitting progress
A ballband discloth
A finished pair of rainbow socks
And a Pomatomus sock in progress
I received a lovely exchange from Lina
And I sent an exchange to Linda
I did some simple finishing
And I stitched another Essy's friends piece and finished it off.
I've been stitching on Mirbilia's Miss Valentine today and I'm hoping to finish it this week too. Other than that I've been wandering around the internet reading lots of blogs and I finally got round to using Google reader to keep track of the blogs I read. I'm a complete convert to it. The remainder of my time has been spent applying beads to 4 bridesmaids dresses and one wedding dress. No pictures of them just yet but there will be after the wedding.
