Hello everyone. Apologies for missing last week’s round-up and generally vanishing from my blog. I have been distracted but wanted to quickly give you a heads-up. The distraction unfortunately has not all been due to happy crafting – although I spent a couple of very constructive days at the weekend, sewing lots of little hand-sanitiser dangles for my Etsy. My motto since the beginning of the pandemic has been to use up my stash – and not buy anything new. Trouble is, I have so much, I am hardly making a dent *haha*. However, I managed to use up some of my fabric, and that is just as much joy to me as selling the finished items over on Etsy. If you want to have a look, check here.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t all been “good” distraction. Over the last few weeks, my dear, lovely husband hasn’t been feeling great. As a sufferer from a lung disease, he found it increasingly hard to breathe, struggling to get enough oxygen. Eventually he went to his GP yesterday, and as a result was sent to hospital. Hospitals are off-limits for visitors, though, so all could do was dropp him off at A&E. Luckily he was seen to pretty quickly, but they have kept him in for observation and may stay until the weekend.
They initially put him up in the Covid ward – which had me seething with anger. Surely, someone in his condition should be kept as far away from the disease as possible. For him, it could be lethal to catch Covid. They moved him into another ward this morning, thank god. He is more comfortable now that he is getting oxygen from a tank, but some of his issues are still unresolved. To say that I am worried, is an understatement. – But at least he is in good hands and being looked after. I just hope that they can find out what is wrong – and somehow also make it better.
So the distraction continues, this time to distract me from morose and anxious thoughts.
My kitchen has never been cleaner. And I have just another thing to distract me, sent to me by way of an e-mail from a reader of this blog who was worried that the links in the comments might get me into trouble. I don‘t think so, so I am posting them here now for you: If you haven‘t seen it, and also need some distraction, check out Richard‘s 2016 project Urban and the Shed Crew. Apart from a couple of film festivals, the film unfortunately was never shown in cinemas. Which is a shame, because it is definitely worth seeing. Big thank you to E___ for passing on the links.
I might rewatch it this evening, too. Wouldn’t mind a social worker looking after me for a bit *ggg*.
