Summer Solstice

Happy Litha everyone. I got up at 4am and got to Ness Point for 4.29, the most easterly point in the UK, to watch an amazing sunrise on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. It was the busiest I’d ever seen it with people travelling up from London and the West Country to celebrate what is not commonly known as the summer solstice. They would not have been disappointed. It was the best one I’ve seen in the last 5 years. Embrace and enjoy your day and to any Oak and Holly Kings out there; have fun, stay safe, and Oaks let your ego go the Holly King is the winner at midsummer. Blessed be. #nesspoint #lowestoft #summersolstice #litha #pagan #witches

Humour with a walking aid

So just come into spoons for a coffee. The bar maid was extremely nice, gave me a mug and asked “do you know how to use the machine” I have a walking aid, not an idiot brain ….. but then again …. #whetherspoons #humour #walkingaid #coffee #fibromyalgia #arthritis #disability

Knitting update

So yesterday I posted this on my Living positively with fibromyalgia blog:

Knitting for Hand Joints and Christmas

I do have some hair brain ideas like going line dancing or tap dancing and travelling Europe in a Camper van. Everyone waits patiently until I come to the realisation that I cannot actually physically do this.

My latest idea, however, is a good one on principle. I’m going to teach myself to knit and I’m starting with bed socks as Christmas pressies. Granted, they will no doubt have extra holes in than those just at the top but that will make people laugh!

I have the wool, a free kindle book on knitting socks and today my bamboo knitting needles arrived from Amazon. They are extra light and smooth and apparently good for people with joint problems.

Now to get the hands and brain exercising.

And then today I read my kindle – apparently I need circular needles 🤣🤣 Scarves it is then!

Wine Wine Wine

How lovely. Hubby bought me a bottle of wine in the way home from work.

5 minutes later:

Hubby: You’re drinking wine

Me: Well you bought it for me

Hubby: I thought you might save it for the weekend

Me (spitting out wine): Pah ha ha ha. You’re so funny

Oops. I did it again 🤣🤣

Planning to go back onto keto tomorrow but have lots of gluten free lasagne sheets to use up. Text Mark, who was out and about, and asked him to pick up lactose free milk and cheese and I got the mince out of the freezer. It wasn’t until he got back that I realised I had taken beef cubes out of the freezer and we have no mince. Stew it is then!
