Sporadically accelerated...

A week of 
getting things done...

A pattern in progress...


Pattern writing
and lots of photo's...


Thrifty finds...


And a week of getting 
lost...

I have had a virus of the horrendous  type...

The kind that makes you cough...then cough some more...
and when you think your lungs have had enough...
you cough some more and you know they have burst...

Now I could have coped with that...
Believe it or not...

But this lurgy bug thought it would give me a double dose of bad luck
and
made me loss my hearing...

after a few tests...

it seems that my "good ear" has lost 20 - 30 %...
and my "dodgy ear" has lost 30 - 50 %...

Now the "dodgy" ear is still "unstable" so they say...
 so
with huge doses of prednisone
it might get better...

In the mean time the prednisone
is making it very hard to
relax...

It is making me very accelerated
and really I think I am pretty accelerated without help...

So many nights I am now sitting up far too late cleaning the house
and crocheting sporadically as I can't seem to concentrate very well...

But if it means that I could get back some of my hearing
it is all worth it...

Any way,
 on the bright side...it means that at least the house is getting clean...lol...

P.S...Thank you all for lovely Granny Hoot love...
and hopefully I will get some time to write out 
a free tutorial for my Granny Biscuits too...

so sorry to hear about your lurgy, and hoping for a good recovery on your hearing. I occasionally suffer from the gross waxy ear thingy and it kind of makes you feel trapped inside yourself and not part of the outside world.
I sure could do with a good dose of that medicine if it makes you tackle housework though :)

Oh no Michelle that's horrible! Hope you get all better soon!

PS - prednisolone is great for getting lots of crafting done.

I feel for you being under the weather. You just never know what the wind will blow your way. Drink plenty of fluids & get some sleep when you can. We will be here waiting when you are ready. I just love your little owl tea cosy! Just adorable!

Sorry to hear you have been under the weather Michelle. I hope and pray that your hearing loss is just temporary. We take for granted the full use of our senses. Your little owl tea cosy is just adorable just like you!

Feel better! We need health Royal Sisters. :)

Hope you get better soon, not so great to live in a world that sounds 'fuzzy'. The tea cosy is so cute! As far as the cleaning is concerned, you should only be worried when you start cleaning with a toothbrush!

What a horrible time you have had ... wishing you a full recovery and return to some normality. xx

You poor thing! Hope you feel better soon. My mum had a similar thing and lost hearing in her ears and she was put on steroids. It worked really well for her so hopefully if will for you too!

Sending healing thoughts your way...a friend had this happen to her and the prednisone really did bring her hearing back to normal.
