Some of my regular blog friends may have realised by now if I don't blog for around a week then its more than likely I'm off traveling somewhere (I would of course tell you I was going away on a trip) or that something has gone a wee bit wrong in the world of Trees.
Whilst I usually try to keep my blog all positive and full of frivolity - sometimes life simply punches you in the face and it's a bad time.
This had been the case for me over the last week or so and its why I'm behind with my blog reading and blogging.
You see my endometriosis decided to kick things up a notch over the past week and I was really in quite a lot of pain - to the extent all I could do was work and then come home and rest/watch movies/cross-stitch.
It was a horrible and very worrying time for me, I've been really sick in the past and its got to the stage when I've not even been able to work a full week (there was a period of time I could only work a four day week - it was terrible). and I REALLY don't want to go back there. I am hoping that its all just a "blip" and that my crazy Christmas diet/lack of exercise made my body go a little bit crazy.
To add to what was already a pretty horrible week, on Saturday Rich and I went for a we walk in town and when I came home I had the worse migraine EVER. I do occasionally get migraines, but I haven't had one like this for literally years and years. It was horrible!
Anyways that is a wee explanation of my absence, 2013 has not been a kind year to me so far - here's hoping things can ONLY get better from here. Today is Wellington Anniversary Day, so I have a long weekend and I'm pain free and migraine free and friends have invited us to a barbeque today - so things are looking up right?
Despite all the general crappiness of the last week or so I did still manage to do something to the house this weekend. Although given the circumstances it was only a very minor revamp!
I received this painting from my parents for Christmas not this year, but the year before and ever since its been sitting on the desk in my sewing corner. Whilst I guess its ok sitting on the sewing table - a painting should REALLY be hung on the wall right?
This is where the sewing magic happens - hard to believe I know - given the general chaos of the place!
Hope you guys have had a much better week than I have xoxox
