So here we are at the end of not only the week but also the month of July which has been a grotty month in many ways. It is absolutely perishing this morning with the temperatures down to 11ºC but the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky. I was feeling a bit wobbly yesterday so abandoned the idea of breaded chicken and instead I put the chicken thighs into a roasting tray along with an assortment of vegetables, mini peppers of all colours, tomatoes, courgettes, red onions and a good bunch of herbs. I also made the peach and amaretti dish for desert which went down very well.
Shiona brought me three pieces of knitting which need finishing off, actually they have only just been started, so there is plenty to keep me occupied. One is a sort of cardigan in the same yarn as the shawls which is only half way up the back so plenty still to go. Actually I knitted the back while we were in Scotland so I will now just continue where I left off. There is no pressure as all the pieces have been abandoned so I can take my time to finish them. At least it gives me something constructive to do while I watch garbage on the TV. All the pieces are made in difficult yarns which I guess is why they have been abandoned. Anyway I am delighted to have a small project to occupy my hands.
I am continuing with the pill regimen and am pleased that this morning I am up later and with no signs of panic which is very gratifying. The men are continuing to be helpful and the atmosphere in the house is much more relaxed. All of which make my life a bit easier.
As yet I have made no plans for the day and will just play it by ear. I don't need to put any pressure on myself just yet so I am just continuing to fill the charity box with bits and pieces as I come across them. I will tackle some of the more major jobs when I feel a bit more stable. Good job I gave myself a long lead in to get the house ready for the market.
Well that about it for this morning time for my second cup of coffee and I might even have some breakfast. Have a good day all even if you will need a cardigan!!!!
