Time to stand on my head then . . .
Purple vetch. Isn't it gorgeous? One of my favourite wild flowers. Seen here growing in a hedgerow between the A40 and our house. I wish I could go out for a walk to take some more wild flower photographs, but the steroids are bringing out all their worst side-effects to have an airing, and now my Kidneys are having a break from overworking, I now have terrible aches in my legs (yesterday it was hips) which is probably connected with the Steroids. Long term it would be Steroid Myopathy. Deep blardy joy. So I can't lay down/sit/stand/walk for very long. That's it then, I will just have to stand on my head . . .
Thanks for your lovely supportive comments. I am on the mend, but there is going to be a HUGE lifestyle change in my diet (a lot less meat and dairy, and even more rainbow veg), and which rooms we live in over the winter here, as the wood burning stove may be the major culprit - apart from recent family stress - in the downturn in my asthma and all those infections. (Causes particulates in the air which set up inflammation in my lungs). I can't wait to get back to walking again, but in the meantime I just have to mooch about and take things steadily.
As an afterthought, I wish I could keep my photos the size they initially load on the page, before they shrink again. Does anyone know how to do this?
Sewing in progress, btw, and I've pieced the 9 piece block for the seaside cushion fronts. I'm just off in search of some suitable material for the border and then I'll take photos later.
