Hello there friends,
Just a little update on the progress in the Goble household - well I would probably argue that there is hardly any progress at all! My visit to the Doctor on Friday was good. My liver function is almost back to normal and my iron levels had gone up, albeit, not as much as before, but up. The Dr mentioned that she thought that I have been bleeding through my stomach for quite some time unbeknown to me.
On Saturday I had begged Anth to take me to a couple of charity shops as it has been weeks since I did anything 'normal' and I thought it might brighten me a little. Oh my. It wasn't until I was actually out in my old hunting ground that I realised just how weak I really was. It was like wading through treacle. It was a lovely sunny day and it felt so good to be out. We didn't stay long but just long enough for me to find the above sugar bowl that I now store my hooks in.
I keep looking at it and it makes me happy. I need to feel happy at the moment as I go up and down like a yo-yo. One minute stormy, the next clear. Just like the White Balloons song.
I so love my American coloured metal crochet hooks - I wish they were available in the UK which just do grey. Yes grey! As if we don't have enough greyness in life.
I have taken enormous comfort and pleasure reading your comments and emails over these last few weeks. I may be at home alone most of the day but I feel privileged to have such connections to some amazing friends. I can call you friends, can't I? Good.
