I’ve been knitting furiously for the last two days.
I know, I know … knitting is my therapy, I’ve been knitting furiously, so…
Don’t judge! Part of it has been therapeutic, but also, there is not a lot going on in my life at the moment, so I need (NEEEEEED) to keep myself busy.
I am slowly but surely working up to the big splitting-the-guesthouse-into-two thing (see the first mention in this previous blog), and at the moment the plan is to start that on the 22nd of March. I’ve got bookings till then, so I’ll block a week out for the reno to happen from the 22nd. Yay! I am a bit nervous about it, but it has to happen.
So I’ve been spending time on the laptop, sourcing the things I’ll need and making some phone calls, going to local shops to see what I can find here – our town is smallish, so it is not uncommon to have to look a bit further afield for what you need.
At least I’ll have new knitting projects and the guesthouse reno to blog about in the near future, how cool is that!!! Wink-wink… (At least it is not the whining session I started this post off with, until I threw it in the bin, so to speak.)
Make yourselves ready for a lot of ‘before’ and ‘after’ pics!
I know this does not happen often, but I just could not finish this post last night. I wrote and deleted at least 3 times, probably more.
My day started horribly. With blood curdling crying outside my window. Turns out it is my cat, and he was somehow hurt in the night. I assume, until a vet tells me differently, that he was run over by a car, because his back legs seem to not be working, and he cries every time he tries to move. This cat has an interesting history, and he is loved by the whole family – it will break my heart if we have to lose him this way.
So now I have to wait for the vet to open in just over an hour so I can get my cat seen to. 😦
Later on Thursday:
It is now about 3 hours later than the previous piece about my cat. I’ve heard from the vet – she can see nothing broken in his back or legs, but she says it looks like he was under a car, because he is bruised badly. She is going to do one more X-ray to check his pelvis and bladder, but she thinks he’ll be okay. Thank goodness, it’s a relief. Phew…. 🙂
