Well, it has been an interesting week. Thanks to the knee I’ve been pretty much confined to my flat, largely my bed, for the most part. I have had a lot of time to read and made a fair few Toesles (pics below), work very kindly let me bring some chores home rather than suffer in the office Thursday and Friday, and I struggled into Ben’s car and into Waterstones in Stratford long enough to interview for a weekend job on Saturday morning. (I got the job btw – start next Saturday!)
My interview outfit – the flattest boots I own.
Otherwise I’ve missed out on everything. I missed our Sew Make Believe meeting on Wednesday (read Kate’s round-up on the blog) and more importantly, the Rag Market trip yesterday. I’ve actually felt quite low – aside from the physical pain, not having someone to look after you when you’re immobile can be emotionally wrenching. Thankfully, just as I got to a real low point on Friday, Lauren picked up on one of my tweets and turned up on the doorstep, swept me away in Ben’s car and fed, watered and returned me later! They also bought me a present to cheer me up:
Isn’t he cute?
He’s a little less substantial now, having been nibbled upon…
On Saturday I was considering joining the girls after my interview, but was still in too much pain, so I came home, yet again. But lovely Kate had decided to come round and look after me in the evening. She brought me fabulous feel better/sorry you couldn’t come gifts:

She also brought a curry from Selfridges Food Hall (mmmmm!), and refused to let me move an inch all evening – she cooked, washed up, and made endless pots of tea while we watched the Twilight movie. Sometimes people in your life just seem to know exactly what you need – and I am so grateful for that.
So, the Toesles. Some I haven’t photographed yet, and I have made a few as gifts (which therefore won’t be on here until after they’ve been gifted!) but a handful follow, beginning with the piggy pin-cushion I made for Helen’s birthday a couple of weeks back:
