We're All Simply Mad Here…

My own perception of reality… one blog post at a time.

Go Home March, You Are Drunk!


Yeah, this is what I woke up to this morning when I managed to drag my butt out of bed. Alan did say if I was going to work to get up early as the weather was bad but my brain obviously didn’t compute this at 6:15. It did compute when I called work at 8am to let them know I wouldn’t be in and my boss commented on the weather. Mother Nature is definitely drunk its supposed to be spring for crying out loud!

So yeah, I didn’t make it to work today. I did manage to get some sleep last night which made for a much happier me this morning. I’m actually starting to feel better and am going to work tomorrow.


I don’t know what it is about socks but I’ve been on a sock knitting kick lately. I have a sock in a drawer of my desk at work that I do a couple of rows on in my lunchtime but this morning I decided to cast on another sock (pictured above). This time it’s V Addict by Alice Yu from her Socktopus book. I’m using sock yarn by Eden Cottage Yarns in a colour way called Berry Pie. I’m hoping it’ll soften up once its washed because its knitting up scratchy and scratchy on your feet is not good.

Alan has decided that because I am sick I need feeding. So, instead of VLCD shakes, Alan is cooking so we’re having pizza. I’ve preordered it online so all he has to do is collect it on his way home from work.

Back to my sock, I might get to the heel before Alan gets home.

Internetting Under The Influence

I shouldn’t be allowed to Internet under the influence of cold and flu medication.

This is the third day I’ve been stuck in bed. Damn flu, I blame my boss for bringing it back from New York with him. I ended up having to call in sick this morning but by boss has been very understanding, especially since I spent Thursday and Friday unable to speak. I hope that I’ll be able to go back to work tomorrow but given the fact that I’ve been unable to get out of bed today except to go downstairs once which set off a coughing fit, I’m doubtful of getting to work.


But it’s okay, I’ve got Lando to keep me company (the bear). It’s a shame ’cause I can’t knit either… Looking down doesn’t bode well.

Anyway, I was internetting and decided in my infinite wisdom to sign up to do a 10K in September. Alan has decided I’m mad but I don’t think so. I’ve got a 5K in June which is a while away then 13 weeks between the 5K and 10K. Training for both should be possible :).

Oh well, think I’m going to lay down, try to nap and watch Men In Black.
