The FNSI that almost wasn't.....

Ever had one of those days when your brain just shuts down and there's nothing you can do to coax it back to life?    Well I had one yesterday.

Did the regular Friday morning grocery run as usual.  The weather was horrible. If we hadn't needed to eat I'd have stayed home.   I got soaked... windswept and frozen to the bone.  I was not a happy pixie!  To add to the misery the shoulder I dislocated a while back decided to ache like toothache and I got a sore throat.

I was a real wimp.  Just flopped into my chair with a cup of tea and stayed there for the rest of the day.  Mac played Dr and slathered enough pain cream on my shoulder to numb it for a week.

Fortunately I had this at my left hand.....


these at my right.....


and this in front of me


Oh how I love that stove and Mac for lighting it for me.

So.... I didn't have a bad FNSI after all did I.    I finished a Boys Story stitchery and started another and had a lovely time reading magazines I'd only had time for a quick glance at before.   Oh... and I did have some delicious vino.

I'm writing this Saturday evening after another day spent in my chair.  This time tucked up in a quilt with a big ginger kitty (Bagpuss) on my lap.   Who said having a cold was all bad!

Hope you all had a great FNSI...... I'm coming to check out what you've all been doing

See ya

Oh Josie, I hope another day in front of that lovely looking fire will do the trick for you. Great that you were able to achieve something in the end.

Josie, You are doing the correct thing indeed! Rest, enjoy the fire, and stitch away. The best therapy I can think of. We had weather like that a few days ago when I was out doing the grocery store run too and I know exactly what you were describing. Get all better, my friend :D

Poor you! You had the perfect spot though in front of your fire with stitching and mags! By the way, your fireplace looks gorgeous and I love the owls and birdhouse.

What a lovely sight - a roaring fire is just what I want some nights when it gets cold ... gets a bit tricky justifying that when you live in Darwin though, lol! I love how your Boy's Story quilt is growing ... absolutely gorgeous!! And congratulations on the FNSI win! Hope you feel better soon!
