Sigh

May I have a quick little moan, please? For a while now I’ve been experiencing pains in my hip which have kept me from crafting and sleeping properly, hence the long blog absence. It’s only a niggle as long as I move but when I sit down it starts to hurt and seems to get worse as soon as I go to bed. Last week I was limping home from the school run and I thought “This is ludicrous, get yourself to a doctor, girl!” So I did and the diagnosis is Trochanteric bursitis or Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome as it’s now called. Apparently it’s quite common in middle aged ladies with slightly wider hips which, of course, makes me feel really good. Not.

Anyway there’s not much you can do as it’s one of those things that should go away by itself after four to six weeks. However, it’s a bit of a nuisance as I feel it most when I sit still which has made me avoid my sewing machine a bit. Not the best tactic as I’m planning on a mostly handmade Christmas.

Right, moan over. I have been sewing a little something which has been a real treat. I’ll tell you more about it at the end of the week but will leave you with a little sneak peek.

I will try my best to get back into blogging on a regular basis again as I have really missed it. More importantly I have lots on my to do list which I’m really looking forward to showing you. See you soon!

  2. Wish I’d read this post before we met at the weekend – I too had this diagnosis about three years ago – so I can sympathise with your pain – cyber hug coming your way right now xx
