I find more socks and disappointed add them to the singles pile hoping I will find their mates amongst the debris.
I perk up when I find some knitting patterns. I sit and look through them. Then I find a half made tank top. On closer inspection I discover it is three quarter made. I remember photographing is for a blog post to show you could knit on the train.
Later in the week at my knitting group I proudly show everyone my finished tank top. A few days later I even bring it into a teaching session I am doing on mental health. The audience looks at me in a much less accepting way than when I told them I took anti-depressants.
Having worked up an appetite I go into the kitchen. What can I rediscover in here? I look in the cupboard and find some dried peas. What can be greener than that? (see what i did there?)
I find my glasses to read the tiny instructions. 3 hours later I can smell burning coming down the hallway and discover that pea soup not only takes ages but also requires you to stay in the kitchen with it. I scrape off the top layer and find it is quite palatable.
I remember it is my flatmates birthday and wonder what I can give her. I have already offered to spring clean the flat but decide its a bit like buying a partner sexy underwear in that you benefit yourself as much as the recipient.
Find out tomorrow how I solved this problem.
