Counting spoons

Posted Sep 04 2011 4:46pm

After last night I knew that I would need to take it easytoday.  So I gave myself lessspoons.  I have already used three & sonow I will be resting with just two remaining. It can be so hard feeling so tired the time.  But I have time to spend with my family andfriends.  That is most important to me rightnow.  This morning, I did get stuck intoa DIY project.  I know it's a littlenaughty but I've been itching to do it so many days!  It's turning a T-shirt into a one shouldertop which is something I’ve done before except today I am following a couple ofnew learned techniques to create a more customized and flattering look.  It should be finished by the end of today butwould that count as one of my spoons?  You'reright I do know the answer to that. 

I will pop to college tomorrow to hand in my assignment formy photography City and Guild course.  Iwill be relieved to let it go.  I havepersevered with this course despite obstacles. Physically shaking, being unwell, loss of concentration, and generallethargy has made this course challenging but managed to see it through to theend.  I took my new Diana+ analoguecamera today but the poor weather meant that I could not take any shots.  The market at Merton Abbey Mills was a tad lacklustre,but it was nice to look over at the Canal where the river Wandle flows.  It seemed very different to the craft marketI used to known as a child.  But it'sstill a lovely little spot in south London that has a sense of nostalgia andsimplicity.  My breathing has been verydifficult today.  I am keeping my eye onit and noting any further changes that I may need to report to the Freeman. 

The lack of sleep I’ve endured for many weeks just doesn'thelp when trying to make myself better. I am being spoiled this evening with a roast dinner my favouritehome-made by mum so that should see me in the right direction.  I probably need to drink more water than Ihave been the past couple of days and that will help me to feel more claims inclearheaded.  I look around my bedroomand I can see that some clothes have escaped from my wardrobe.  I am tempted to get them all down and putthem right back where they belong but again that would be using another spoon.  Nope,  Imust ignore what is looking at me and  instead focus on myself.  I have a new relaxing bath kit I might trythis evening with a scrub, candles and whatnot. Oh this is going to be so difficult this ‘relaxing’ lark!
