I actually didn't realise how much I interacted with her through the daytime when I am in the house on my own - it was a lot.
I also didn't realise that I was deliberately quiet when doing certain things, like opening a packet, as she would be there, under my feet, until I had fed her what was in the packet - regardless of what it might be, if it made a noise it was obviously edible.
I am sure I still hear her wandering around the house, looking for somewhere comfy to grab a nap.
I guess this will go on for a while...
In the meantime I have been zipping about like a blue-bummed fly, trying to keep my mind occupied, but not really actually doing anything really productive.
I've been doing quite a bit of listing stock on my new website, but that is rather autonomous and takes very little effort or thought.
I started a crochet blanket, not because I need one, or even really had the desire to have one, just because I needed something that took little thought. My hands just cannot stay still, especially on an evening when we are watching a couple of hours of TV, but my mind couldn't cope with patterns or concentrating hard.
I started today by going up to Hobbycraft (Carlisle) and doing a proddy rag rug demonstration. People quite like to see older crafts resurged so loads of people stopped to chat to me? Some even took away fliers for the upcoming class, which was nice :)
