up and down

Up!
Completed book chapter for an edited volume due out in September….through Pickering and Chatto….super excited!
Down…..
May have tendonitis. Bloods have been taken. May have to do occupational therapy. Just what I need a full year and a bit away from submission of the thesis.
This also means other  projects have slowed right down.  Which is never a good thing when deadlines are fast approaching and I just can’t make it happen yet. Like the knitted motel room, and the knitted solar lights next to the Festival centre. Labour intensive and bad for tendonitis.

Plus I am dying to paint.  Too many paintings are swimming around inside the mind, insisting they be made to exist.

I have also formed an unhealthy addiction to Pinterest.

Big S is growing to be a young man and has started talking philosophy (!!!) at the age of 9 and little S is about to turn TWO. Little S is a big person in a little body.  Both superstars and both incredibly incredible. Love them to bits.

Adult partner S is pushing ahead trying to leave our difficult years behind.  I am super proud of his never-giving-up attitude, and wonder sometimes where he draws his reserves from.
