Having an acute asthma episode(s) left me totally wiped out. There are times when even sitting on the sofa takes effort, and during those times a person should do as little as possible.
It's also at such times I re-discover my love of the National Health Service. It cost me more to take a taxi back from the GP's surgery than to see him, and come away with medication that makes it so much easier to breathe again. (sigh) Breathing is something that should never be under-rated!
After a week of being weak, I managed to swim half a mile on Friday afternoon. I'll be hitting the pool again on Monday afternoon, and again on Friday. At this rate it is not going to be long before I've finished the swimming section of the slow triathlon!
I baked for a coffee morning, only to find I'm a day early. Here's a picture of the cookies:
The top ones have a walnut half pushed in before baking. The cookies on the bottom tier are the same mixture with a bit more flour added. Then rolled into balls and baked. They were then topped with some water icing and a jelly sweet.
And, (yes, there's more of today to describe), the lovely Mrs B was a very patient teacher today. She talked me through how to crochet a star blanket. The only problem is that my hook is a metallic red, and it clashes horribly with the red yarn I'm using. Thankfully the red yarn is just the centre of the blanket, and I'll be able to clash some orange against the hook soon.
