I hope you are all well and, if you are in the UK, enjoying the spring weather. Today especially has been glorious – sunny and warm.
I was supposed to be helping T put in the new concrete gate posts to replace the wooden ones that rotted away at the bottom. He finally managed to drill out all the old concrete with the pneumatic drill borrowed from a friend and today was the day to put the posts in. Unfortunately I woke up with a blinding headache and didn’t get out of bed until about mid-day. By that time he had completed the job on his own. What a star!
Gradually my headache wore off and as I felt better and it was a nice day I took Mum and Dad out for a drive and a short walk along the beach at Bembridge. I think it wore them both out even though we didn’t walk very far, but then Mum is 80 and Dad will be 91 in a couple of weeks time. However I also know they appreciated being taken out for a couple of hours.
I have been receiving lots of lovely feedback from my workshop last week and requests to do more. I will do more, but I need to pace myself, because I work full time, have commitments at home, have commitments to Ryde Social Heritage Group and I want to have time for my own creativity. So it’s not something I’m going to rush in to.
I am having major problems with my email at the moment. My ISP introduced some ‘improvements’ to the mail service recently and ever since then my email has been messed up. I was receiving some emails but not all of them. Yesterday I had a long, and sometimes difficult conversation with a support technician. I think he may have been in India, at least he had an Indian accent. He spoke very good English, but his voice kept fading in and out and he had to repeat himself lots of times before I understood his instructions. I thought he had sorted it out, as I received 150 emails while he was talking to me, but today I’m still having problems. I am pretty sure I should have received more than one email today and I haven’t been able to send any! I know I just have to make another call to fix it, but today I’ve either been too ill or too busy. Maybe tomorrow…
The page above is another page from my third Teesha Moore inspired journal. It’s a little dark, but I do like the images I used.
Have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
