I have added just a few rows to my Celtic Myths shawl but that’s all.
Last week my left ankle was a bit sore, this week it’s been very sore so I haven’t done any spinning since Monday morning.
As you can see not a lot has been done this week. My husband has Covid so I moved into the spare room downstairs and he has been isolating upstairs. I am taking lots of precautions and cleaning protocols and mask wearing when dropping off and picking up trays. My neighbours have it too, it really seems to be getting everyone who avoided it in the last 2 years.
I did get out on my SUP on Monday having tested negative and keeping distance to the other ladies. It was great to be out although the Loch we chose had a bit of a trek through the bushes to get to it which isn’t easy when carrying a 10′ board and bag etc. We were going to go out again on Friday elsewhere but my ankle is just too sore and so I’m trying to rest it.
I think the UK’s roasting temperatures on Tuesday made the international news. Here, where I live in the Scottish Highlands, it didn’t really get too hot. On our weather station it hit a high of 27.5⁰C (81.5⁰F) and 99% humidity. It was the 3rd highest temp we’ve had in the last few years. We also had thunder and torrential rain and sticky air so it was an odd day. My cousin’s daughter lives in Lincolnshire and they hit 40.3⁰C (104.5⁰F) which totally smashed the previous UK temperature. Remember hardly any homes or buildings in the UK have air con! So I was very grateful we got off lightly.
My husband’s birthday has been postponed until he is Covid clear and he will open his presents then.
One of the reasons my crafting has been very light is that downloaded a colouring app on my ipad called Happy Colour. It’s very addictive but relaxing. These are just a few of the ones I’ve done. If you download it, don’t blame me when nothing else gets done, you’ve been warned. 😉
