I should have……..

P1000378I should have blogged a lot, but I did not.
I should have made a lot of things, but I did not.
I chose to focus on the smaller, more personal and private things in life while waiting for a very needed surgery.

2013-10-17 08.49.22I do not think pain does you any good in any way – it certainly does not strengthen your spine or make you more grateful for anything, as I have heard someone say.
It does not make you more brave either, in case you wondered!
It drains your batteries for one…. and for two and for three.

P1000381I always aim at putting something good in to every day, regardless of what else is going on! 
I love (and need) my feel good moments, when I can enjoy my coffee and my hand piecing and stitchery.
I have not got so much done lately, but I brought both to hospital last week, and I pieced through my pre-op waiting hours, which went fairly fast that way.
This week I have slept most of the time, and now, finally, after months of not feeling to good, I feel my batteries are taking charging again!

I have plans – for many good days ahead, but I am taking it slow, so my body can heal and my head can keep up after post-op fog brain.

P1000380
I have a back log of photos and things to tell from the last weeks – I will be back shortly :-)’

embrace the current season

Det er veldig slitsomt når kroppen ikke fungerer som den skal, men jeg håper virkelig du får det bedre snart!! Det ser ut til at stoff, nål og tråd er med deg over alt, så du gir aldri opp! Og du lager virkelig de nydeligste ting! Klem fra Romsdalen;)

dear hanne,
I am so glad to hear that you are feeeling better now.
I agree with you pain is never good, or necessary except that we are feeling better when it is finish!
I have been out of track in blogging these weeks but nothing dangerous or painful, just too much for me in so little time.
have a good week!

I wish you a speedy recovery and to tell you not to rush things. Can see your EPP is coming along a treat, such a relaxing way of stitching I find, just the cutting out that is a pain
