There's no Lemony Snickett here but there's definitely a lot of events I could have done without. The fair I was so looking forward to in my last post got cancelled at the last minute and then I fell on ice during that really cold snap and since I'm really lucky the impact of the fall aggravated the RSI and hurt my arms so much I am hereby banned from sewing or crafting. I am going slightly insane but I know I'm in so much pain without doing any sneaky sewing that to go against orders would be more than folly.
So I'm just about managing with work as can't afford to take time off, but as I'm sure you'll appreciate sewing and posting isn't going to be happening any time soon. At times I have felt like packing it all in and taking down the blog and shop and giving away all my fabric and threads as it's just taunting me at the moment, but I keep being told I will get better so I'm holding off until they chop my arms off as I suggested the other night...In some respects it would have been better if I'd just broken my arm as at least then I'd have a cast on and it would be something visible that I could go 'yeah, that whacking great big cast on my arm is the reason' but because I can't really see it, my arm and hand swelled and I've got bruising from the treatment to alleviate some of the problem, it doesn't seem like there's anything wrong.
On the bright side though I've painted my nails! It's the first time in ages as I don't usually bother since I end up scratching it or putting dents in it or chipping it whilst sewing or crafting. They're now a wonderful shade of Cadbury's purple! Yum yum! I'd take a picture but I'm no manicurist at the best of times and do have some paint on my skin! Whoops!
I just didn't want anyone to think I was being lazy or ignoring the blog, I hadn't intended on saying anything about the fall but since I really don't know how long I'm going to take to recover enough to make something I can show here I thought there had better be an explanation of the silence.
