Gosh I didn't Realise

It's been two whole months since I last wrote on this blog.  I never don't write but unfortunately the MS has really had quite a long ride recently and I have been too tired to do anything much.  No sewing, no quilting, no writing and no quilting and worst of all no blogging.  Whether I'm walking or not has never really bothered me because I have always but always walked slowly.  It's the tiredness I can't control that drives me nuts and is the worst of it insofar as I am concerned and self pity has NEVER been high on my list.

So I started Avonex 5 weeks ago and the side effects were supposed to be not nice.  I didn't get any of them at all until this week when the side effects struck with force.  Two hours after I gave myself the injection I started to shiver and feel hot and cold and just like flu.  So do I blame it on the Avonex.  No not really.  I blame it on my HUGE mouth.  I was so busy bragging how I didn't get the side effects and that's why I blame my mouth.

Anyway enough about that.  I will take some photos of lots of things soon but in the meantime I have a competition for you all.  I bought one too many of the new magazine here so I am offering it to one of you. All you have to do is leave a comment here - I hate it when you have to jump through hoops to win something.  Doesn't matter where you are but if you would like to put a comment on your blog about this giveaway I would be really grateful but you don't have to.

Without further ado is a photo of the front cover of this magazine which I have to say is the best thing to come out of England in a very long time in the quilting/crafting world as usually I really don't like English magazines.

This competition ends on 17th of June. 

So until next time 

Lots of Love

  1. I'm sad that you've had such a time. Hopefully when the med kick in you'll be back up and kicking. Fatique can be overwhelming at times.

  2. So sorry to hear you're not doing well. It must be quite frustrating to battle MS. Sending you lots of hugs

  3. I'm so sorry to hear you have been unwell, I do hope you will pick up soon. I am so glad to have come across your blog, it's so pretty here :) If this giveaway is open to people outside America then I would LOVE to join in. Have a lovely restful day, Hugs, Catherine x
