Knitting to sooth the savage beast - well - my over-thinking brain. It is whirling around, writing lists and ticking items off and adding more.
I sometimes think that my brain and I are independent beings which share the same body - me!
Let me explain. Last night I went to bed very tired, so fell asleep really easily and very deeply. Until I was woken by a persistent chatter..... a little busy bee voice was cheerfully listing all the jobs I had to do for today. I tried to ignore it and go back to my nice warm snuggly sleep when .....
Have you remembered the pot of paint? the white paint? have you have you?
What about the guillotine - bet you will forget that one ha!
The black fabric?
and what about the festive CDs????
At this point, I was fully awake and wondering what on earth was happening - then I realised ... my brain was cheerfully prepping for today's workshop and making sure that everything was shipshape ..... at 2.30am in the morning. Eventually I got up and made a mug of tea and let the my brain prattle on until it ran out of steam and I fell back into bed absolutely knackered!
So, today, at work, I felt a little brittle, a little tired with scratchy sandpaper eyes, but don't worry, my brain was fast asleep.🙄
However I did remember to pick up the paint, the black fabric, the radio and paintbrushes. The CDs I chose to leave behind and what about the guillotine??
Yes dear brain you were correct I did forget ......
So, I am knitting - and aaaahhh it is definitely soothing my soul (as is the mug of tea and the fire) bliss.
No brains were harmed in the making of this episode of my blog, although I did think rather evil thoughts about it last night😄😄
