A Change!

I finally got hold of the correct, clinical ashwagandha. You know, the stuff you can't firkin find in the shops. Well. The stuff I can't firkin find in the shops.

The crochet hook is a loaner and has to go back to MeMum when the project is done. I'll be picking this up whenever I have the problem of hurry-up-and-wait. Which will be whenever I'm waiting for my compy to boot up.

Today, the Patreon stuff goes up. But that'll be happening after today's brat run.

Let's see how good I do and how quick.
