As they say - it's been a funny week. I have this ridiculously unpredictable spine which has a mind of it's own when it comes to deciding when to hurt, and for the last ten days or so it's played 'let's see how much sciatica I can give him before he collapses in a heap'. At one stage it was winning, because the sciatica went from my spine right down to my right knee, which is still recovering from a total replacement a year ago..............my consultant assures me it wasn't operated on by a passing tea lady - I did ask.
So, that's the down bit.............oh, except for the fact that I should be splashing about in our brand new state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool at the moment, if it was working. It isn't, so I remain dry and sore. C'est la vie.
The good bit - I've made a bunch of St Ickpins, and there are some beauties in there! I'm now working on a stickybroochy type of thing..................we'll see how it comes out.
I have also discovered another very beautiful person amongst my Facebook friends this week, it seems the nicer I become, the nicer people are to me. I think of this as a revelation, Nina tells me it's obvious. It can be tricky being a cynic.
Another tip I've learned in the last couple of days - when bezelling a 12mm rivoli don't listen to the books which tell you to use 30 delicas on the first row, use 32, otherwise you'll need a tyre lever to get the rivoli to stay in. Last tip - if you're not enjoying what you're doing, you're doing it wrong.
