So, half term was lovely. Em stayed for a few days, I made a tote bag and Nintendo DS pouch as Christmas presents and I spent a lot of time at the doctors.
I have been very, very tired for a long time now and I thought it might be anaemia, what with female-related stuff happening and I had tests last week. No anaemia, yay! But some evidence of slight inflammation in my blood (whatever that means) and no answer for the tiredness. So back to the doctors I go. Sigh. It's really ridiculous. I feel cold all the time. My ankles ache (if anyone wants to knit me a pair of thick socks, I wouldn't argue!) I am, in fact, turning into an old lady and I'm tired. I'm 24, I can usually walk for miles without so much as a red face. What's even more bewildering is that I didn't do any work over the holiday, as I was determined to give myself a break after the madness of the summer. *Sigh*. So now I have to wrangle time off and what have you and it is most annoying. As well as slightly worrying... Please keep your fingers crossed!
I did a load of work on Grandma's shawl, although it's still not done. I'm working like a beetle on it and the shrug has been relegated to the sidelines until it is done. I am so easily seduced, I need to focus. Yep, that's what I need to do. Oh, and write a novel in November thanks to NaNoWriMo. I've started but have no idea if I will make the 50,000 words by the 30th. We shall see. I guess I better go have a look at it.
