and I’m very glad to have reached the weekend. Some weeks you slide through smoothly and can gaze out the bus window at all the wonderful things passing by. Other weeks you have to fasten your seat belt and hold on tight while praying you don’t loose your dinner. I’m sure you can guess which type of week this one has been.
However if all you do is dwell on the rocky bits you’re going to turn into a pretty miserable so-and-so, so lets not do that but look for some nice things instead.
Nice thing number 1)
My yarn delivery arrived. This is a combination of Blue Faced Leicester and Alpaca sock weight yarns. I’ve had the BFL before but this is the first time I’ve tried the alpaca. I’ve cooked up a few skeins of the BFL but wanted to keep the alpaca for the weekend when I’ve had a bit more sleep. Besides I keep fondling it in it’s bag in the lounge.

Nice thing number 2)
Jakes leg appears to be healing well and with luck the vets are going to try him without the splint this weekend and see how he goes. Taking him in twice a week for treatment has been a drain financially but also emotionally / time wise. Each visit takes an hour out of the day and when all you want to do is curl up and ignore the world for a while……

Nice thing number 3)
Ok I’ll admit it, I’m a bit stuck for something to write here. I could go on about how lucky I am to have a job, nice home, friends blah blah….. and don’t get me wrong I am well aware of how lucky I am compared to some people. But if I’m just talking about things for this week and you rule out things like – ‘Well I didn’t fall over yesterday’ I’m struggling…. That said I’m sure things will start looking up as soon as I get some sleep and the sun starts shining (so I can play with my camera)…. Hmm maybe that can be nice thing number 3….. Looking forward to a couple of days off.
