You may have looked for me yesterday and failed to find me. Just when I finished writing all about the phenomenon of Friday the 13th and the fact I did not really believe in it, all went to hell…
Well, there you go. So, the update was all ready to go, photos taken , blog written, all to go LIVE just in time (the way I like it..lol) but the Universe decided different.
I was amazed how calm I was about itall. Normally I would throw a big fit and start energetically talking to a deaf computer while Jazz would be trying to soothe me by pushing her big nose under my right hand and ask me to play with her instead. I did not explode. I was calm and thought “well, so be it” and went back to work. Because , yes, with all those huge events coming up like the Bendigo show in July and the handknitters guild mini wool show on May the 28th, I could not afford to sit on my hands.
I did not walk under ladders or come across a black cat by the way. Makes you wonder about all these superstitions though.
Time is in very high demand here now and if I had the chance to buy some more time off Ebay I would, but apparently nobody stocks up on the stuff. I wish I saved some of my time up when I was a kid , when I seemed to have time in abundance, but alas, I just wasted it on things kids do like having fun, playing games and being bored every now and again. No chance of ever being bored again I think.
So, apart from trying to get as much stuff done as humanly possible, trying to cope with hospital stuff and doctors appointments, trying not to worry and above all trying to still have some fun, I have come up with my new credo of this month, with thanks to the adorable Dory from Finding Nemo: Just keep swimming..keep swimming..keep swimming…..
This weeks update is not that huge as last weeks, but it is still a mini MONSTER update… I won’t keep you waiting for longer: here is the YAAAAAAAARRRN!!! And some absolutely wild Wensleydale. Enjoy!
