part three: holidays is too much! :/
i meant to blog the other day but i couldn’t type due to all of the shaking from my friday morning panic attack. really, i’m such a t***.
let’s back up…
wednesday was a scheduled Day Off – it was Husband’s birthday, the sun was out at last, and it was all lazy morning with lovely gifts and cards, such as this one from his super talented sister-in-law Little Black Heart,
we did some going out stuff and had a pub lunch… and i must’ve had some kind of relaxation-delirium schizophrenia mentalness thing, because i accepted an invitation to take a stall at a craft fair next saturday.
now listen, seriously, right,
1a. (as discussed previously) i am some kind of reclusive, anti-social, agoraphobic person. also, 1b. don’t like new things or new experiences.
2. craft fair. first ever craft fair. outside. with people.
3. next saturday. not some vague FutureSaturday in 2013 or something. NEXT saturday.
4. due to continuing DIY commitments i have no stock.
so, in summary, i have suddenly volunteered to do a thing i don’t like to do, haven’t done before, and am woefully unprepared for, NEXT SATURDAY.
oh yes, and 5. i am sporting all manner of sewing-hand injuries, ailments and/or swellings, due to
6. the DIY tasks i am IN THE MIDDLE OF.
*i am almost getting hysterical thinking about it all again*
luckily my extremely amazing and very organised friend, caroline rose art, quickly agreed to share the stall with me (ie 98% of it i hope), and hold my hand and do the maths and… somethingsomething… < whatever else might be involved with these craft fair things >
dosed up on rescue remedy, i stopped trembling, and was able to continue painting the new ceiling,

by yesterday everything had become finished. once i’d cleaned & tidied & organised stuff – including my brain – i was able to start sewing.
and now that i’ve made something, my panic attackular symptoms have subsided
i wish my swollen fingers would also subside, because it’s really difficult using teeny tiny embroidery scissors when your index finger is like a sausage >:(
