I’m having problems with my wrists again. The left one’s been slightly dodgy for ages and I hurt my right one at Christmas drying pots and it’s not been right since. I’ve been trying to convince hubby that it means I shouldn’t do any more drying up ever, but he’s not buying it! The right one’s been getting worse of late and now I’m starting to notice it at work which is not good given that my job is 100% computers.
In hindsight, making all those Baby Jane blocks last weekend was a bad idea. Rotary cutting (both using the cutter and holding down the ruler) puts my wrists in positions they’re not happy in. I kind of knew this but was ignoring it, however I’m coming to the conclusion that I need to stop doing so much crafty stuff, including a ban on rotary cutting for a few weeks 😦 I’m also going to stop doing so much on the PC in the evenings so that I’m using the mouse less.
So that I don’t go completely insane with boredom, I’m going to try some embroidery. I really enjoyed making my colour wheel** and I have the beginnings of an idea for something else. I’m also going to work on problem one from this post, and get the flat more organised.
All in all, I think May is going to be quite quiet over here. I have google reader on my phone so I can keep up with everyone’s blogs without using the PC, but I probably won’t be commenting much.
** I’m currently reading The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde. It’s got a great “explanation” of why some places use “colour” and others use “color”. Definitely worth checking out if you like inventive literary fiction…
