How nice the common is now, green trees, fresh smell, and just Spring/ Summer-like. Everything seems to have just burst out of its Winter sleep. The birds are singing and the ones that have bean on their holidays are back. I saw a swallow flying back and forth as well. I think the warmer weather is here and better days are ahead. A lot of us have bean vaccinated and soon the others will be as well. Things are definitely looking up.
Got two knitting patterns today, one Sooty, Sweep, and Sue glove puppets. The other Rosie and Jim complete with the barge boat. I am looking forward to making them. Got to finish off Tigger first though.
Jamie-Lee here today, played as usual, this time with Barbie doll all going to a party. She stayed for tea as well.
After the warmer weather now cold, very, very cold, rain as well hailstones at times. Our Postman was back in his Winter stuff.
I just went through from the kitchen and felt a drip on my head. We have a small leak in the kitchen roof where it joins onto the main house. Paul thinks he can fix it.
Coin racks came today and I soon realized we need more than we have so ordered. I think they will look good. When done will put a picture on here.
I Watched with Andrew, Starship take-off, and land perfect this time. Well done SpaceX.
A lot of pain later seems to be every joint I have and more besides. Not good as already taken a lot of extra tablets, I know these will give me stomach problems later.
While on the common my knee locked up and just gave way, and I dropped to the floor. The pain was very sharp. I got up, wiggled my leg about and the pain went and I was able to put weight on it again like nothing had happed at all. Very strange, but pleased it was a short burst of pain.
Paul has sealed the roof so hopefully, that will work. Just got to wait for rain now.
Woke up with a bad headache, not good to start the day, heavy rain too.
Took Summer out late today as the rain was still pouring down. Yes, and the roof repair worked, well done Paul.
The second corona jab today, so hopefully I will be protected now. This one did not hurt as much as the last one. The Nurse did it a bit higher on my arm. Later on, I had a more intense headache behind my eyes and down my neck. Feels like a lot of pressure in my head. Not too sure if this is related or just a coincidence, as had a lot of headaches just recently.
Headache is mostly gone now so I am so pleased.
Nighttime I Finished off the second attempt of Tigger's head, as pulled down the last one, as something was not quite right. This time I have put on little diagrams so I know which bit is which and the right way up, as a lot look the same. I am better at knitting than sewing up anyway. I think this will help me hopefully or Tigger might not get finished.
Not a good night woke up many times with ice-cold feet and spasms in my feet and legs.
Angela popped round for a chat and coffee she is doing well. Cleaned up downstairs and washing, dried so well, as very windy. I love the smell of line-dried washing so fresh. Something you don't get with tumble drying. I feel quite tired today as I a lot less sleep than usual. Spasms are still there but if I keep moving they back off a bit.
Well an adventure day, I went into town as not bean since January. Most shops are open now and just about back to normal. A lot of people around too. I quite enjoyed my day I felt free for the first time in ages. I got just about everything I wanted, so a good day for me.
Another not-good night I could not switch off and my brain was going at a fast pace.
Changed the bedding and washed them, dried very well and quick. Home-made veg curry for tea, so we could all eat the same together, Andrew is a vegetarian. Very nice as well quite hot and spicey. We all enjoyed it.
Dull start but not cold, the sun came out later. Lovely walk on the common with Summer so nice and green now. Bit of bedding ironing, and doing this Blog. Maybe a bit of sewing up Tigger later. More rest day than doing things today.
Finally, got Tigger done I am so pleased, Not quite as it should be, but, the finished Tigger looks the same as the picture. I did manage to sew the tail into the hole where the head should have gone, so one big mistake. I did get the head on the right way after I had removed the tail. Gave it to Jamie-Lee and she thought it was great.
Mexican for tea, bacon, and chicken burger for me and fries. Very nice but too much Mayo, the meat kept dropping out the burger. I ate it all but I felt it later as very heavy on my stomach.
I have bean trying to mend a puncture in a wheelbarrow I borrowed from neighbor Andy to get horse muck off the common for the greenhouse. This has not worked despite four patches being used. I think the tube is a bit too old. Told Andy and he took it back.
He said, he hardly used it so he put it outside his house for anyone to take. Within an hour someone had decided it was ok for them The barrow part was good, just needed a new wheel or maybe just the tube.
While brushing Summer, I managed to pull out a few hairs around her eyes with the comb. She always has a lot of sleep black bits, that get stuck. This bled a bit but she did not seem bothered though. I put some Germolene on the sore bit and gave her the usual treat she has. All forgotten about, but I did feel very bad. I looked on the internet and a lady said to use a wet cold fannel and this will remove the sleep bits easily. Tried it and she was right.
Late night I had a very bad head, pounding. The air is very stormy so I think that has a lot to do with it. I stood up and a gushing nose bleed. I had already taken tablets for my headache but took more as no better. I managed to get to bed at 6am, still in pain. The birds were singing and it was lovely, another time perhaps to enjoy, but not tonight/ morning. Went to bed, hopefully, things will improve later.
Still headache but not as bad, but I hurt every. I know if I sit all day I will feel worse. I decide to get the greenhouse ready to take the horse muck. I took out five bags from each side, so now when Andrew and I get to the common to get the muck it will be ready to put on. My toms and cues are well behind, but the weather has bean more like winter again so I think they will catch up a bit when in the greenhouse All this lovely muck they will have to grow in should help too.
The same sort of night again as last night, bad head. Still very stormy here, so go away heavy air give me a good day.
Went with Paul to look at another car as this one wants too much money spending on it now as getting old and it's not worth it the cost. He chose another car Citroen grand C4-- and will pick it up next Thursday. The last ride I would say for me in this car. I don't go in the car very much so the cars a lot more for him than me.
Summer did not settle last night I think the wind was upsetting her, howling down the chimney and the rain was blasting down battering against the windows. I stopped down with her sleeping on the settee. She soon settled again, now she had her Mum with her.
Other racks have come for the coins but they have sent them wrong. I got in touch with the seller and they will get back to me. The place is in China but supported by Amazon so should be alright. Shame as I was hoping to get them all done. I can finish off mine but not Paul's. Later I did not do the shelves as my hands not too good for grip today, maybe tomorrow.
Starting knitting another Tigger this one sits up and seems to be a bit easier to knit, but time will tell.
A cold day is Winter back again? Lots of puddles on the common so Summer at least is pleased. Cold to a very strong west cold wind. We enjoyed our walk so that's all that matters.
Started to do the coin selves, my hands are not too bad today so hopefully, I will not drop too many coins. They are all in their protective cases so will be ok if dropped on the carpet. Not like the crystals that have no chance. Andrew and I looked up how much the value has gone up for all of them. Not going to make me rich but at least they are worth more than I paid for them. Any way got them all done Dropping a few, looks good what I have done as you can see by the picture.
