I'm Knackered...

So, I finally managed to go out (first time in about 9 weeks), sort out financial stuff and do some shopping. I think I was out a little under 4 hours. Road works for The Tram That No One Wants have screwed everything up, getting in and out of the carpark near the post office is a nightmare, so it was not fun. Add to that my right hip and knee do not like me right now so I hobbled everywhere, massively laden with bags because of course we need EVERYTHING and it's nearing Christmas so I had to grab some suitable things for presents for the neighbours who have been so much help... I hauled the lot home, the nrealised I didn't get anything suitable for my Uncle, my cousin, his partner and their two children...

DAMMIT! I DO NOT WANT TO GO OUT AGAIN THIS YEAR!

Not surprisingly, I'm knackered. My feet are throbbing, my back aches, my shoulders hurt from lugging bags and I still have to clean the fire out again, and do a pile of washing up =(

On a brighter note, something I bought off ebay arrived.

I wanted some pompoms - I'd knitted a nose warmer for one of our carers, and put a pompom on the end - she loved it - but I only had two pompoms to choose from, so I thought I could do with a few more. I found I could buy a pack of 100 assorted sizes, or a pack of 300 for less than twice the price, so naturally I went for the 300 - I'm sure I can find uses for them. I was expecting a nice little package, so you should have seen my face when what I got was a sack half the size of a pillow! Ah well, pompoms are useful, maybe I can use them to decorate the Christmas Tree, lol!
