Last night's spa was divine! Stew joined me and it was just so nice to sit there and chat. We don't chat enough.
When I finally got out I felt fantastic! There was still a niggle in me back, but I felt like I could breathe deeply again... and MOVE without too much pain.
I hope my back continues to improve. The Doctor said that often these sort of back strains can take up to 6 weeks to get better! Bugger that. Tramadol and spas should keep it under control ...I hope.
Bag. I would like a trolley type bag to put my sewing machine in to transport it easily from my car to class. One lady in Friday's class has a really neat trolley bag, and I asked Ngaire (shop owner) to find out the price of a new one for me.
Well... it was $380! Ahhh ... bugger that! And it was a bit too small for my thumping great big machine.
So, last night I went online (ebay, Trade Me) to see if I could find a bigger one, 2nd hand.
It must have been my lucky day because there was just ONE, and it is Extra Large, perfect for my machine. AND it's way cheaper than a new one.
I put in a bid for it, and fingers crossed I get it. I will find out later tonight. Quite excited.... silly me.
Today I am going to cut out more 'blades' for the pink Dresden Plate blocks... this project is going to keep me busy for ages, which is neat. And if I get a bit bored I can stop and do a few little projects too.
I'm expecting a little project to arrive in the mail soon from a blogger friend near Wellington. She doesn't sew much, so I've offered to make her fabric panel into a wall hanging. I can't wait to see it!
If my back plays up too much during the day, I shall pop back into the spa. I'm loving the spa again, and it won't take much to get me back in it! *smiles*
I'm feeling really happy ... lots of positive things floating around in me head. Sure is better than the doom and gloom of late!
And a new baby is coming.... I am super happy about that. In case you missed the news the other day... Bex and Steve are expecting Baby number 2 next year.
I decided to have a 'quick' look at batik fabrics on ebay.
2 hours later.... and I still have not got to the end of the batiks for sale! OMG ... I have put quite a few on my 'Watch List'. I'm not getting any until I get the dog panel... because I've not bought anything on ebay before, I want to make sure it arrives and I'm charged the correct amount.
Has anyone ever had any problems with ebay?
ABOVE: some of the fabrics I'm looking at. There's just SO MANY!!!
The pain killers are finally working, but they are making me a bit 'spaced out' in the head! Novel feeling I must say, kinda like being drunk!
I don't think I can drive me car while I'm on these pills. The Doctor told me if I had an accident I would NOT be covered by my insurance. Good to know.
I'm gunna go have a lie down ... sitting here all morning is not good for me back at all.
Several hours later! I slept for 3 hours!!! And I feel really groggy. I might just have to cut back on the Tramadol, it's strong stuff.
Takeaways tonight, yaaa, no cooking.
I have had an awful evening. I started feeling very ill just before dinner, and was head over the loo for a while. Then my nausea settled down a bit, so I had dinner.
Then about an hour later the inevitable happened and I was sick. So... I'm cutting down on the Tramadol... to see if I tolerate it better.
End of Day: waiting to see if I win that sewing machine trolley.
