I'm so behind on my blogging it's driving me crazy, I want to write more in-depth individual reviews about the places we visited on the Isle of Wight on our holiday, as I have some amazing pictures and videos.
I had plans to do an ongoing post about the allotment and how it's growing, I've not even started that one yet and it's nearly Autumn now, so that will have to wait for next year.
I really want to do a review of the Sculpture Park in Churt as it's an amazing place, again I have some amazing pictures of the sculptures. Badger Boo has written his, which can be viewed here although his view of the world is slightly different from the rest of us.
The Jumper is coming along nicely and nearly finished. Plus I've now learnt to knit cables, which was pretty awkward with my stupid fingers that don't always work, but pleased with my efforts and I'm now using them to make a bag, not sure how it will turn out but I'll let you know when it's finished.
Plus I have ideas for all sorts of other posts.
My reason for not doing these things is simple. My brain has turned to mush, I'm taking far too many painkillers which is making it hard for me to think straight. The pain of my Arthritis is really bad at the moment, so I'm just getting through each day as best I can.
I'm also starting to get a bit sick of people at work passing comment and saying "You look ok to me" and I know for a fact most of them think I'm skiving when I don't go in. I wrote a post on this some time ago called Think About It, sometimes the reason I can't go in to work isn't just the pain, it's because the drugs I take (perscription only) make me so high they seriously impair my judgement.
Mentally I feel a lot better than my last post which is a good thing as I was feeling a lot worse than I actually let on there.
My thoughts are with Lesley and her husband this week, as her beautiful young Boxer dog Themba passed away at the weekend, he had been unwell for a while, but it doesn't make it any easier when it happens. Lesley has written a lovely tribute to him on her blog The Mad Dog Woman of Shackleford.
