It’s Friday!!! Driving home tonight in a snowstorm – quite scary! I’m on a course at the moment so away Wednesday – Friday and it’s always difficult driving home at the end ‘cos i’s shattered! Tonight was even worse as a horrible snowstorm had started in Knowsley. The roads were slippy and visibility bad. I couldn’t wait to get home.
When I left on Wednesday night I was nearly finished making a new mobile ‘phone cover as I had just sold the one of Folksy. I was sewing away trying to finish it before I left and getting more and more tired. Then I remembered what I had learnt on my course – PACING !! Also ‘Take a break before you Ache’ – very good advice but oh so hard to follow when you want to finish an item. So, shouders already beginning to ache, I put down the item and left it unfinished with the needle and thread ready for when I returned.
It was hard leaving it unfinished – it didn’t feel right – but my shoulders did! – much less pain and stiffness from not overdoing it. So now I am home again and tomorrow I will finish the cover in a very short time – no harm done at all. i could finish it tonight but, – I don’t think so! – Friday night is steak and chips and wine night with husband!! Bye – I’m off to scoff and wash it down with nice glass of Merlot 🙂
