Yesterday a few hours were spent in hospital. All a bit scary but successful and I should be okay now. But I am still depressed and I worked out why yesterday. It is four weeks since I had the drattted operation and, while I am getting stronger, I am still not 'normal'. I am achieving less than half of what I expect of myself. So I am a bit miffed. For instance I want to make two visits to the north of Manchester but the train takes five hours and requires two changes and the car would take 4.5 hours one way and I know both of those are a bit much for me at the moment. So I have to contain myself in patience and I am not good at patience.
I have been potting up seedlings in the greenhouse and that I can do. We went out and bought a hose system last week which has made it really easy to water the greenhouse. My big problem, apart from getting tired, is that I am not allowed to lift anything so I can do 90% of a job but have to all in Dorothy to do the last 10%. Bah!
I suppose I should not complain but now I have said it, there you are. I will not say it again. Now off to do a spot of bookbinding

- I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
