Everything works out

Everything works out


Hello friends

It’s almost a month since I wrote anything on my blog so it’s time for another update.  I hope all is well with you in your part of the universe.

Here things have settled down and we are now on a more even keel.  We are both out of our depressive moods and getting on with things.  T still has to get his medication sorted out as something is making him feel very unwell at the moment, but he’s seeing his doctor next week so hopefully she can make some changes for the better at the moment he is still on sick leave.

I have started back at work which is good.  I’m taking things slowly.  The first week I did two and for the past two weeks I’ve done 3 day weeks and I am gradually working up to being in full time work again soon.  It will be good to finally get back to normal again but at the moment I’m struggling a little with my time management.  I suppose that after 8 months of having very little to do and all the time in the world to do it in, I’ve gotten used to not doing much at all, but I’ll get back in my stride eventually.  Anyway it’s so good to feel healthy again and I’m feeling optimistic about the future.

Next week I should be working 3 days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but on Wednesday I have booked leave as I am travelling to London with a couple of friends to receive another national award for Ryde Social Heritage Group.  We are going to have to leave VERY early in the morning to be able to get to London by 10am and then at some point in the day I have to give a short presentation to lots of people, but I’m looking forward to it very much.  We have to leave London by mid afternoon in order to be able to get back to the Isle of Wight by early evening.  It will be a long but rewarding day and I’ll have all day Thursday to recover from the travel.

I’ve started working on a project with my radiotherapy mask.  At the moment I’m not sure how it’s going, definitely not quite as I expected. I think I just need to keep at it and see where it goes. The project involves papier mache and wheat paste and I haven’t played with those for a long time so at the least I’m enjoying the process and that’s more important to me than the end result.

Apart from that I still haven’t found much time for doing any other art so the page above was completed in my small journal in March this year, below is the before and after image:

Stay healthy and happy and I’ll see you soon

Big love AJ 🙂

  1. Lovely to hear you are in a more positive place and congratulations on yet another award. Hope T gets his medication sorted next week.Loving this journal page and looking forward to seeing revamped radiotherapy mask. Lots of love as always.xxxxxx

  2. Wonderful to hear from you again and that everything is doing okay. Will look forward to your overhauled mask. My father used a mask also when he had his radiation years ago but would not let me take home his mask. I guess he does not want any reminder of his radiation visits.

  3. I’m writing this on the Wednesday at just a few minutes after 10am so you’ll be in London now to receive your award. Congratulations! So good to see that your hard work is recognised. What is the award for, exactly? Hope the day goes / went well and that your speech goes down well too. Good to hear you are both feeling much better and that everything is looking well. The Universe works in mysterious ways! Lovely artwork as usual. x
