Coughing and Crochet 1


work in progress

Well, what a wipeout week!

Not only has the weather been wet and windy and horrible, I have also been confined to either under the duvet or under a blanket on the couch watching crap daytime tv and crocheting madly for a deadline. I have had a mystery illness which seemed to change shape and symptoms every day but due to the joys of freelancing, I have had to continue working to meet a deadline, as of course, I have another one pending when this one is finally met.

I shouldn’t complain as, if I had no work I would really be in trouble. However, it is when you are ill that the pros of a 9-5 working lifestyle seem more alluring. A proper duvet day is what is really needed this week, not a half duvet day, with most of me nestling under the covers while my hook-wielding hands poke out from underneath!

On the bright side, living atop a hill in this weather can give you amazing city views with beautifully dramatic and tempestuous skies, which I managed to spy when I crawled out from my cocoon of blankets and yarn. (the picture above is the autumnal London sun setting on the city proper, but taken while a bit fuzzy myself, so sorry about the fuzzy quality!)

I also managed to almost meet the deadline even while consuming vast amounts of mindless television and laying down, as a result the swatches in the top picture finally made it into a bag-shaped item. Plus, it is nearly the weekend so I shall finally get my duvet day.

Working for myself: two, 9-5: nil !

(well, technically 9-5 has one point, but after a misspent youth watching the football results on grandstand, saying nil is always far more satisfying…)
