a thank you, a moan and another day
What an exhausting week it has been. Juggling the broken wrist, a trip to Sydney, trudging about the trade fairs, coming back to a slow shop week and trying to work out how to stretch a little money over everything that needs to be done without it dissolving like a piece of cling film in the microwave. The wrist pain is driving me a little nuts and not being able to do any making is tipping me quite over the edge, hanging out on Insta and watching everyone else being creative is wearing me down.
A huge thank you to everyone who has dropped in or sent messages of support. It means a lot. Truly you are the best.
As someone with a pretty battered body I have never taken my ability to move about and make stuff lightly. I know how much it is a part of who I am and to be put in the position where making is incredibly restricted has made me teeter in frustration. I know it will all be fine in a few months time but after almost 6 months of hand and wrist accidents I am getting a wee bit annoyed. I had plans you know.
I find out either today or on Monday whether I need surgery or not to pin the bone back into place. Let's just say after 10 days it is still hurting like hell and I have a nasty case of 'self employed syndrome'.
The shop is open, we still have piles of lovely stuff in store and if I am going to be a bit out of working order then I should probably get my arse in gear and get the online shop up and running.
