On Monday evening I was planning to cook tea, then spend good few hours working on the Iliad. It’d been a good day, I still had lots of energy and was feeling motivated by the people around me.
Then I accidentally set the kitchen on fire. Emergency services were called, A&E was visited. I am fine. the kitchen is structurally sound and most of the damage is aesthetic. My sewing is also fine. But I need to spend the next few days cleaning and repainting, etc.

And darkness-be-my-friend- for asking where I was/if I was okay. I probably wouldn’t be posting this without those precious messages of support, so: with all sincerity, thank you.
It’s been a while, I know. The last however many months have been busy (PhD upgrade - I passed), hard (landlady illegally tried to kick us out of our house, but of course we then had to move anyway - who wants to stay where they’re so obviously not welcome?), and rough (health, money, stress).
I’m really trying to get back on top of things and have some semblance of routine and productivity in my life, but I don’t want to make any promises about being back in full flow for now, because I’ve tried to get back into things before and just crashed myself again.
Here’s hoping I update again tomorrow.
I took a few days off because I need to buy more thread and needles, an because of our minor heat wave. I do not function well in heat.
