Waiting for the other shoe to drop
I think all the kind thoughts must be working - the past few days have not been too bad. BUt I can't relax about it - I really am waiting for the migraine from Hell. It's coming. I can feel it.
However, I did get through an UNANNOUNCED, yep, you read it correctly, an UNANNOUNCED visit from the Care Commision. In Scotland, care homes and nurseries are regulated by this body, receiving an annual visit. Sometimes it is unannounced. Now, it's my own fault, because I kept rabbitting on about how unnanounced visits are better - less stress, realistic view of the establishment, yadda yadda yadda. Certainly got what I asked for!
I have some knitting news - finished The Somewhat Cowl. And very please I am with it, too. I had to alter it a fair bit - no matter how I tried, I couldn't get the tension right. So, this is not as good as I would like it to be - it's a bit tight across the chest. Also, depsite trying it on frequently, and measuring, too, I haven't got the cowl part long enough. So, I will definitely knit it again, same alterations as before but taking into account the improvements I want to make. It's not the best picture - I look pretty shapeless, but in 'real life' (whatever that is), it looks just fine.
Off to a wedding today. Jill, known to us Scottish Rowanettes, is tying the knot this afternoon. Looking forward to meeting Mr Kathleen and Mr Heather at the bash. I just have one problem that I'm wrestling with. KNitting - take itor not??? Now, I'm sure that Jill would understand. BUt I think that Mr Jill might not. Hmm. Tricky one....
So, better go and get sorted. Dear son is going off to uni again today (wracking sobs) and we need to get him sorted before we can go. Thanks again, and again, for all the good wishes.
