Well I've had a funny start to the week!
Had numerous phone calls and emails to follow up, then I decided to start on my tri-monthly clean up - for anyone living in a 'white house' you'll know how important this is! That's not to say that I don't regularly clean my house, of course I do, but when you live in one with paler colours, you just need to keep on top of things, plus, as I'm a bit of a magpie, I have to be judicious and make sure I re-evalute what gets kept and what goes in the respective recycling bags!
And that's when I found a cute pair of flat sandals that I bought a few years back which were nice, but I lost a stone in one of them, so couldn't really wear them again, but as is usual for me, I kept them just in case I used them somewhere or other. Well today I got my chance, and this is what I came up with - guess some of you have seen something very similar to this bracelet from Odd Molly, yes? I couldn't believe just have similar the stones were, so I salvaged those from the decent sandal and stitched them onto to one of my bracelets and I have to admit that it looks pretty cool!
Wish I'd kept on with the cleaning up, as that's when the madness started!
I ended up attempting to use the overlocking machine that my friend had lent me, as I want to buy one, but wanted to try hers out first - and with that, sat there for almost 3 hours and had obviously worked myself into such a state attempting to sort out the tension on it, that I had a very bad anxiety attack without even realising it! It felt like I'd been hit instantly with a severe bout of indigestion, which I never suffer from, and I just couldn't breathe and I was dizzy and the pain in my upper back was awful, but some deep breathing exercises eventually sorted me out and after about 2 hours, the feeling went away - it felt very scary, that's for sure!
So I've been sitting here for a while now, listening to my favourite singer who always has a calming effect on me, whilst crocheting and finishing off this little bracelet as (thankfully!) I find that to be very theraputic too, so all's good!
Guess I'm just going to 'chill out' for the rest of the day tho!
