EDIT: Well, I ended up going about a mile and a half. En familie we were going to see my paternal grandmother. We got as far as the slip way to get on to the motorway when my mum had a massive panic attack. My dad had to pull on to the hard shoulder becuase she was really bad. After about 15 minutes, we came home and I stayed with my mum, while my dad and younger brother went anyway. I’m exausted and my mum is very upset. She used to be so very independent (even up to a few years ago) but a series of panic attacks has left her timid and practically house-bound. It’s very distressing for me because I feel so helpless. Sorry for unburdening myself in this public manner, but the old cliche of “A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved” might work even better if more than one person read this!
Well, kinda! I’ll be away for the day tomorrow (or today, depending on when you’re reading this) but I’ve finished both “Sugar Almond” and the Sew I Knit shirt/blouse. Proper pictures will follow. In the mean time:
0: A Flickr group with (all) the Knits From Knitty
0: My Cricket Team might actually win something this year (fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed)
0: Hope for Giant Panda: apparently, there may be 3,000 pandas living in the wild in China. Yay!
0: I might have a snowball’s chance in Spain of actually producing 2000 coherent words in my chosen subject before I leave for my residential school in the middle of July!
0: My “One Word” challenge is still on – come on people – you know me (mild swearing is allowed, as are hyphernations, or made-up words!)
Technorati tags: yarn; knitting;
