Friday - 13th October


Do blogs come to a halt when the weather gets bad?  Red sunsets, red virginia creepers line the fence, weather that is both cold and wet with the benefit of a cold wind as well - hallo Autumn.

Last couple of days I have been worried about my son, he doesn't answer the phone, mobile or land.  Since he inherited his father's house, he now lives alone and I worry about his type 1 diabetes.  But then an email appears in my mail box, Hi mum, and the world settles down into  a pattern I need.  He had wandered back to the Bristol flat for a few days to be with friends.  For someone who works with computers his adherence to a mobile phone is terrible.  He manages his diabetes well, though it was a worry to me, remember buying him a tagged chain to wear warning that should he be found unconscious than it was a lack of glucose which was the problem.  I remember the story of a young man in London sitting on the edge of a pavement drunkenly talking to his terrified mum, who was more concerned that her son would end up in a police cell without a proper medical report on his diabetes and not knowing where he was.
As my ankle gets better I have decided to spin and ordered some blue faced leicester, which hopefully I will dye when spun into hanks.  I occasionally look at my table loom regretfully but the setting up of the warp would be difficult.

  1. I understand your worries Thelma. We never stop worrying about our children do we, whatever age they are.
    As to whether we stop blogging in wintry weather = I certainly don't as I am likely to be in the house more and to therefore have more time (once I have got moved and unpacked).

    1. True Pat, thinking of things to write about was more my problem. As for children, and then grandchildren and eventually great grandchildren, the list just gets longer to worry about;)

  2. We thought we would quite worrying about them when they became adults. Not to happen!

    1. Most worry is foolish and unnecessary of course, but once the demon gets into your head it nags away.
