A month ago Microsoft added some interest to my life by deciding my user profile didn’t exist. I still don’t know quite what happened (worrying, since there’s no reason it couldn’t happen again…) but things are up and running. Mostly by creating a new user profile – arguing with Microsoft is a Bad Idea.
Then I got sick. For the second time this year, which is unheard of for me. I rarely get sick, and tend to bounce back when I do. Not this time. It’s been nearly three weeks and two courses of antibiotics since the original ‘flu progressed into pleurisy. For the uninitiated, pleurisy is an inflammation of the lining around the lungs. What this boils down to is chest pain, particularly when coughing, which I have been doing rather a lot of. I have also been feeling like a dishrag – all limp and washed out. But I am starting to improve.
I had all sorts of plans going before this started – I was getting back into a routine with my writing and had even joined an online tatting class – free and fun! And challenging… They also have a class for beginners, and you can e-mail for help at any time.

The semester ended on the 8th of June, but they will be up again in September. The links to the projects are all there, so you can try some of the patterns – there is a lovely snowflake by Marilee Rockley – Melt into Spring.
I will be putting up my photos of some of the class projects soon!
