It is a bit cooler at the moment as well and so I am trying to be productive but I am so very tired which is ridiculous as I do not have time to be tired at this point in time. I think it must be the heat, yet I am loving this summer of 2018, every day a beauty and it really is beautiful. The garden needs
watering of course and we have our watering system as well but I find that I like to give it all a huge soak as well.
Some of you may have read on FB that my mums haircut did not go well. She refused to have it done and lashed out too. A very long story short is her hairdresser ended up with broken toes and my sister and I in tears. It was not a good day on Tuesday and I did no stitching at all. In fact when I got home from there I went and sat in the garden with a coffee in the shade and just stared in to no where. Watched the birds, bees and butterflies and generally de-stressed myself. I thought I was going to explode. When my husband heard he came home earlier and took me out to dinner. It was lovely and just what I needed, no cooking and to be with him.
I phoned the care home yesterday to see how mum is and guess what, the hairdresser that comes there anyway, its a guy, managed to cut my mums hair!! I think she thought it is a man an so he will not stand for any nonsense .. either way he will be cutting her hair from now on. He goes to the home twice a week and can see what kind of mood she is in. In addition they are going to ask the doctor to re adjust her meds to help with this anxiety and mood swings that are making her feisty! ( to put it politely)
So now that I know she is ok and that she feels more comfortable in the heat with her hair lovely and short again I can have a few days with my husband and relax.
Yesterday it was just such a slow start for me and I was licking my wounds a bit but I did manage some stitches, These things take time and today well I am more like me again and so I have sorted through my stitchery and also I have a few days off now to get myself together and have a rest as well. My project basket is sorted and the sewing room is basically back to its normal neat self so I can concentrate now on stitching .... I have my design journal at the ready and also my two places to stitch today sorted so I am hoping for a really productive and peaceful day indeed.
Looking forward to seeing our friend from Devon as well and it should be a really lovely long weekend filled with rest, relaxation and laughter. I hope whatever you are up to this coming weekend that you have the best time.
Will be seeing you back here next Tuesday morning and until then ......
Happy Stitching! XX
