I have had a week of a topsy turvy house due to major plumbing work that disrupted several rooms in the house, including the kitchen – arghh! At last, all is back to normal and my nerves are being stroked to calmness. I don’t really fare well when everything is out of place and I think I did quite OK in coping – spontaneous weeding of my neighbour’s garden calmed me down at the worst point of the chaos on Monday!
Then, yesterday, our little Toby fell and got a nasty cut next to his eye – he was very brave for a 2 and a bit year old and entertained us all during the long stretch we spent at Accident & Emergency. “Hello ladies” he said to two nurses, who smiled and thanked him, saying they hadn’t been called lady for a long time! “Where’s my Mr Bump bandage?” was his other refrain for over 2 hours (toddler way of asking “how loooong am I going to have to wait here?”). Ho hum, he looks kind of cool with his war wound.
Today was my first day invigilating at the gallery. Another beautiful, sunny day – the gallery is so full of light (and a little bit like a greenhouse after a few hours!). Despite feeling a bit under the weather, I enjoyed the space and made six of my mosaic stones. Here’s a picture (excuse the background).
The stress of the week has been eased by looking at and smelling the gorgeous lilies my kind husband gave me as a ‘well done’ for the opening of the exhibition last week (alongside scrambled egg and smoked salmon breakfast last Saturday). Bliss.
