Today is Not Day One

I fail at the cleaning plan.

I only have one stitch, but it feels quite painful if I stand or walk for more than a moment or two.  As it is still only a two days on, I've decided to wimp out and leave it.  Apparently as it is lower leg it can be slow to heal.

Also uncle is in hospital again.

Also I got a letter for father today, from a jazz band in Czechia that he followed.  I'm going to have to write back and let them know he died two years ago.

Also, did I mention, very sore leg.

Also the garden needs doing and plants I ordered have arrived.

It's a complete pity party here.  To be honest, I'm most worried about uncle, but it is a regular cycle.  He feels under the weather, then he doesn't eat, then the diabetes kicks off, then it gets complicated, then he gets back into hospital where he is stabilised, then he gets back to the home.

I've been naff raffing around but I'm determined that tonight I will make the most of enforced sitting and make a dent in the outstanding knitting.

  3. (((HUGS))) and more (((HUGS))). My mother has been dead for 11 years and I still get the occasional piece of mail addressed to her! Sometimes, I write back; more often, I don't.

    I'm sorry your uncle is in hospital again, but, as you say, it sounds like it is a regular cycle and there's nothing much to be done, except encourage him to eat regular meals.

    I'm sorry, too, that your leg is hurting you. But it sounds like a good idea to sit and knit and wait until sometime next week (or when your leg feels better) to declutter. Unless your husband can bring you a drawer (or a box or container) at a time and you declutter them while seated?

    1. Thank you so much for the hugs, they are so appreciated. I've heard the staff encouraging him to eat, even when they don't know I'm there. I think you're right - knitting is the way to go! Thank you again for commenting! WS x
