Thank you:) And still need a Lendrum spinning wheel.

Thank you very much for all the encouraging comments and emails I've had. So much healing energy abounds that it is very heartening to be part of it.
I'm trying some of the suggestions received to combat the current pain. BW Yours especially. I'm not normally dependent on chemical solutions as I hate the idea but I did succumb to the various pills offered by the doctors just to get by and keep the pain under control somewhat.
I'm detoxing now and trying to use just oils, healing and positive thinking. I know that I can't get rid of my health stuff and don't wish my life away on that thought. All I want is for the pain to be tolerable and manageable.
Anyways, on with other things. I have just finished reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and loved it. I never saw the tv series but had recently re read my Graveyard book by him and this led me on to neverwhere. I'm so pleased it did as I was captivated all the way through.
Not sure what to read next, do I go back to old favourites or start something new?
I am reading a book on Bach flower remedies and their uses as I have been very interested in them for a long while. I don't want to rush in blind and just purchase some without a little knowledge.
I've been knitting and spinning. I'm making a very silky soft shawl at the minute. It is a strand of green mohair handspun from the Wool Clip and a strand of the most silky eyelash I purchased from Jo over in Ireland many moons ago. The shawl feels like silky fur and is so tactile it is unbelievable. I want to wrap myself up in it and it is only small yet.
I am still asking all and sundry if they know anyone selling a Lendrum spinning wheel. I may be able to get one new hopefully by Christmas if they arrive in the country but obviously being an impatient Leo(VBG) I don't want to wait. Plus if I can buy one that someone isn't using that would be all to the good, less cost for one thing.
So dear readers if you know anyone who has a Lendrum spinning wheel languishing at home, do let me know. I promise to take good care of it and spin often on it:)

Do try to see the TV series if you can - it's wonderful - and even better upon subsequent viewings!! I also read the book first :)

Good luck with the detox. Neverwhere is amazing, isn't it? I've been escaping into childhood favourites recently (eg the Children of Green Knowe) and even kid's books that I've not read before (but by authors I loved as a child: the Minnow on the Say, by Philippa Pearce, realy had me enthralled). Now I'm on the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, as my Mum keeps raving about it. It's made me laugh (lots) and cry (only once, but I don't often cry over books) and I'm just a few pages off the end and don't want the book to finish. Mum's re-read her copy 3 times already! After that, I'm thinking of tracking down more childhood favourites on abebooks. I'm low at the moment (blame midlife hormonal crisis) and want nourishing comfort reading!
