Back from Oblivion

Crikey, it's nearly a month since I last posted.

It's been a little hectic. Since the car accident there seemed to be lots to do. It all took up so much time and one of us had to drive and pick up the other and come back and collect one of us. So, still without a car, I'm trying to catch up!


I feel more enlightened about the insurance industry now. Everyone was perfectly nice after my old car was written off but the money I received is never going to replace it so there goes more money.


When the accident wasn't my fault and my car was running very well and I had no intention of replacing it, it has been a little angering that it's all set me on the backfoot. Mutter, mutter...


I have finished knitting the hand warmers from the last MixTape (now that it's mild and Springy, whose going to wear them!). They were very satisfying to knit.


I have a little sideline going in painting and drawing which has been utterly absorbing. Maybe that's why I haven't blogged.


Seriously, every time I think about blogging, it's too dark to take any photos and I prefer a post with picture... I might post some of my drawings if I get up the guts.


We're off to see Philippe Genty on Thursday. Super excited!


Which hopefully will mean the wankiest piece of theatre ever that we saw recently will pale into insignificant. (People walked out. We would have too, but the seats and stairs were so creaky and wobbly that I would probably have fallen over. Again.)

Mum went to see that awful play a few weeks ago and hated it too. Apparently there was no intermission so no way of escaping half way through? I saw something by Phillipe Genty at the Festival Theatre back when I was in high school and I hope the performance you see is as awesome as the one I saw all those years ago.
Good luck on finding your blogging mojo again. It's tough when real life gets in the way and you even when you find the time you have no inspiration.

Nice to see you back. I'm hoping you will post your drawings (& paintings too!) because I love to look at that kind of thing. Get brave, because we are all your fans!

Sorry to hear life is difficult at the moment. It really sucks that someone elses actions can affect your life so thoroughly.

Welcome back. It sounds like you've had more than you fair share of pain - physical and otherwise. Do post some of your artwork. We'd all like to see what you've been working on. Honest. We're all really nice and supportive.

Welcome back and I hope you enjoy Phillipe Genty more than the other one. Would be great to see what you are working on.

welcome back. i've been a bit sparse on the blogging front too. i'm hoping to get back into it now but my biggest problem is that i'm not really producing anything and therefore have nothing to blog about!!
