It is still morning here in Pembrokeshire, just about. I seem to be very tired and slow in the mornings now, so I don't rush myself. I have made a good start on all my 'jobs' and been for a walk, so now I can sit down for a while.
My crafty table has seen no crafting for a while. After watching the new Paint By Numbers show on Create & Craft last week (and ordering 2 of the smaller kits to try out), I bought a small kit from the craft shop. Typically, I haven't been able to start it yet - but it is sitting there patiently waiting. There is also a pile of some of my latest books (diamond painting logbooks and matching notebooks), which are for giveaways on Instagram/Facebook. I am starting to get sales already, which is very exciting.
After typing last week's post, I had a letter from Breast Test Wales in Swansea asking me to go in for further tests (I had my first mammogram in December). They weren't able to tell me any more details, but obviously my Anxiety was now working overtime. It was a difficult and stressful few days, with my IBS flared up and not able to eat a lot. We went and stayed in a hotel near to the centre on Sunday night, as the thought of getting up early on Monday and doing the 2 hour journey (and finding the centre, which is in the City Centre) was just too much for me. Various tests were done (not entirely pleasant, but ok), the surgeon examined me, and finally they decided to do an ultrasound to make sure there was nothing needing a biopsy. I was given the All Clear after nearly 3 hours there. What a relief. I go back onto the normal 3 yearly mammograms now.
I was still sore and tired yesterday, so didn't go to my usual Tuesday morning papercraft group.
I also had tentatively decided to work in the local craft shop in Haverfordwest very part-time (probably one day per week), but the increasing workload for the farm business (we have decided to buy additional land - and there is all sorts of financial/legal stuff to cope with) and wanting to focus on my Amazon KDP books, made me realise that I just haven't got enough hours in the week.

Come back next week and I promise I will have at least started the Paint By Numbers!
