Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017.
I am not keen on New Year, it marks another year of illness, another year of getting nowhere, a year older and of course the recovery from Christmas.
I survived Christmas by doing what needed to be done and not trying to keep up with other things like social media, household chores and normal daily routine. There was no school runs to do and rushed meals. It was difficult with travelling and being with lots of people and hospital visiting. I survived better than I expected, but also know not to speak too soon! Today and feel very drunk.
I have no idea what 2017 will bring, but I know that my PIP forms will be with me any day, which means I could lose my car and blue badge and therefore my small bit of Independence.
I am trying to work out how to do my website and shop, but when I switch the oven on to boil and egg and put my daughters socks in the bin instead of the wash, I am not sure that my brain is up to much.
I wanted the site to be about getting pleasure from making things when I can, but trying to write a blog about what I make and take photographs, edit and upload photographs and upload things to the shop is too much and takes away the pleasure. I am also disappointed that nothing has sold through the website. I know my crafts are basic and don’t appeal to everyone, but complex things would be too difficult for me and again take way the pleasure.
When I set up my blog I wanted to share information about ME, but to be honest I don’t keep up with the current happenings as I find it all too depressing or to detailed to understand. I wanted to share my experiences too, but again doing something and then writing about it is too much and I need to focus on doing things that I can do and being there for my family instead of being online so much. At the same time being online is a life line and a way of connecting with like minded people and people with similar difficulties and I don’t want to lose that.
I need to finish now as I am very dizzy and my fingers and brain are not communicating very well.
I will post more if I work out a solution!
