Breakfast of Champions


This is my breakfast - my favourite cup (Denby Stoneware, gift from Carsten), my favourite fruit (organic Max Havelaar banana) and my medication. In my book, medicine makes you feel better. But not this kind. This gives you nausea, heat flashes, aches in your joints, dizziness, sleep deprivation and concentration problems. This is every morning, and lasts till noon. Next pills are not until dinner, and not as many.
So, when people, family, friends, anyone really, asks me to be somewhere before 10 in the morning, I would really like to! Love to, actually. Knowing that it will involve dizziness, severe sweating, extreme nausea and risk of a headache, I often say: how about 11? Or maybe lunch?
But, I am totally confident the medication works. My job is to not let it bug me too much, take it in stride and KNIT MY WAY OUT OF IT. Please pay attention to the picture again: the sun is shining.
I had all 65 kgs of Peterhead out on the floor right behind the table. 65 kgs of Peterhead is about 15 square meters of yarn - 15 square meters of PURE THERAPY! For almost a week, Carsten valiantly accepted the fact of the extreme need for yarn therapy! He actually remarked that he hardly noticed it! (Truly a King among Knitters Spouses) And our place is not that big......
So, next time I need therapy, I will jump straight into the Tweed300 stash - though only containing about 40kgs, this is the yarn of Hanne Falkenberg.........and I have all her patterns......
Keep the pills coming! I´m game!

Kære Heidi

Må man spørge til, hvad alt medicinen skyldes?

Når pillerne trækkes fra og et æble ligges til har vi fået den samme morgenmad ;) Kan kan komme til tweed 300 terapi efter ferien...? jeg træner til en fiberbehandling!

Ahhhh fiberterapi!!! Den eneste vej ud af et sort hul!
Og husk nu at du også har dit helt private heppekor, hvis du trænger (både til det væmmelige og til det med garnet!)

Knus

Skidt med bivirkninger hvis man kan ligge midt i 65 kg (!) peterhead og i en solstråle :o)
Nej pjat tilside - kender alt for godt til de dårlige ting, der skal til inden det bliver godt igen. Hæng på og få de andre til at indrette sig efter dig. Kh Susanne, som glæder sig til at møde dig og musketerne i Silkeborg
