It's flu season, it's been cold and wet and I don't drive. This is one reason this move will be amazing for us friends as I will no longer be trapped in my house. At the new house the kids and I could at least go out in the evening for a roll about.
I wish I had something witty and funny to post but honestly I've been struggling with my anxiety and being depressed because I'm trapped in my house.
Although there have been some small funnies. Like my husband tagging me in a video of Storm Troopers twerking. That's some real love right there friends.
I'm working on some projects with needle point. Right now I'm doing my punch needle and doing a Welcome to Night Vale project. I've only just started it but here's how it's going so far

I like stabbing crafts as it's very therapeutic to stab things and not be arrested for it. I really want to get some kits and try my hand at needle felting too as I think that would be super fun! All the stabbing!
I've been crocheting quite a bit too working on my blanket and I wish I had some exciting life to post about to you guys. Which not knowing what to say is why my old blog was deleted since I'm being honest here. I always see people following blogs of people who are interesting or who do great things but I'm over here angsting and having anxiety attacks about posting and crafting.
Has it been too long since I posted? Not long enough? If I post now will people think I'm oversharing? Omg, has it been too long since I posted? Cue my anxiety which leads to me not posting or deleting my blog. Often this anxiety then manifests in other ways and cue my health anxiety and suddenly I'm convinced I'm dying. It's a horrible cycle and I sometimes get really entrenched in it and it sucks balls.
Having a blog again worries me but honestly I like having this place to talk about stuff. It's good for me I think to talk about it all. Even if I'm talking to no one. Maybe my doll house will be finished being built soon so then I can share photos of painting and papering and furnishing it. I think that would be pretty interesting to talk about for you guys I think.
Oh I do have one minute thing to talk about that I was thinking yesterday. Why don't people use handkerchiefs any longer? I embroidered a bunch recently as we're an allergy tear prone family

Maybe it's because I grew up with my dad always having one in his pocket? You get dust in your eye and they start watering awfully? Ask dad for a handkerchief. Start sobbing over a commercial or bad news? Handkerchief.
So why has this habit gone away? Can I start a revolution? Everyone needs a hanky in their pocket! I don't care if you are 11, 17, or 40. Get yourself a handkerchief as they are very valuable and wonderful things.
My kids are now 14 and 12 and I always make sure they have one in their pocket. Lets start our revolution friends and don't let handkerchiefs become a thing of the past.
Stay warm (or cool) and dry and comfortable friends. And remember to always carry a handkerchief.
