A short update;
Since my hip replacement (in january) I have recovered nicely and I can walk quite good again.
Sitting at home and enjoying a slower pace of life, during my recovery,
made me decide to go and take (early) retirement.
I am now 61 and have been working for 44 years.
Even longer when you count holiday and a weekend job when I was in my teens.
Now I can create crochet items, illustrate things and other crafts, potter in the garden, or just do nothing at all, guilt free and at another pace than before.
I also made my own (and all English) webshop! Check it out sometimes; https://www.teenyweenydesign.com
