The last time I wrote was also the first day of that so long-awaited but very hated fibro-flare. I'm still not very fit, but today I really hád to go to a already re-scheduled appointment. Too bad it also had to be a traffic-jam-day on the Dutch Roads. I had to go to a place an hour and a half drive away, but finally took me two hours and a quarter to get to. Luckely it was a flexible appointment, because they know I have to drive a while, but still...
Vanmorgen om 8.15 vertrokken en om 14.25 weer thuis. Lang zat zo'n dag, als je al anderhalve week weinig tot niks hebt gedaan.
While my sweet little car got his fluids exchanged, I could revive myself with some hot cocoa and a home made sandwich. Add a book and time flies without me even noticing. Within an hour my baby was ready for another 10.000 km and I was ready for the next part of the day. Via a furniture-stockroom where I picked up a long ago ordered chair for Henk and a truck model shop where Henk ordered a model I could return home again. Luckely without any traffic jams I was home in a little over the planned hour and a half.
This morning I left around 8.15 and I was home at 14.25. Long enough day when you've been in bed for almost ten days.
Well, I haven't done nóthing actually. Last week I did paint the toiletroom. A good red isn't ugly, isn't it? New lighting, a new mirror and it's become a cozy place to have a ... rest.
This week I should have gotten the mezzanine painted, but I haven't yet, eventhough Henk put everything out of the way for me already. Maybe tomorrow, if I'll sleep tonight.
Saturday we'll be going to the Ikea to get some cabinets for my workspace. All the different cabinets there are irritating Henk and he had the idea to get rid of them all and replace them with all the same cabinets. With a few of them we will be building a cutting/work table too. I still
was under the impression we would make a little seating area there - from up there you have a great view out the big window over the meadows - but we're probably never going to actually sit there anyway, so Henk thought it would be better to use the space more efficient. You won't hear me complain!

Ik kan haast niet wachten tot ik weer achter mijn naaimachine kan kruipen. Ik heb al zeker 4 maanden niet meer genaaid of gequilt. Ik vraag me af of ik het nog wel kan...
Tijdens het in en uitpakken ben ik zo veel spullen tegen gekomen waarvan ik vergeten was dat ik ze had, dat mijn hoofd al tijden overloopt van ideeën en projecten waar ik aan wil beginnen. Nog even geduld hebben.....
When we'll tackle that project I will try to make pictures regularly so you can see how and what we did and ofcourse the end result.
I can hardly wait to get back behind my sewingmachine again. I haven't sewn or quilted for over 4 months. I wonder if I can still can do it.... During all the packing and unpacking I came across so many fabrics and stuff I forgot I had that my head is overflowing with ideas and projects I want to start. I'll have to be patient a litlle while longer..
