HEAVY MIST WHICH THROWS THE WORLD OUT OF FOCUS

Have you ever felt that you were covered by a heavy mist which throws your world out of focus.  The last 2 weeks have been a little like that for me, with the love of my life in so much pain, driving up and down to Perth to the hospital  just to be with him.  Thankfully he is now home, operated on yesterday, I picked him up this afternoon, and he is propped up on pillows downstairs being royally waited upon.  Life changes in an instant.  Plans which were made are unmade if there is such a word.  But life goes on and we are thankful that we are here, and it could have been worse.
The winner of the bag was Nerida Johnson from New Zealand which was so good to have her entry.  Makes the world seem somuch smaller.
Big rest tomorrow, art work on hold for a while until my man gets better.

PRE OP DALLIANCES

Tomorrow is the big draw, I have had a lot of email entries which is great.  Will post the winner's name probably Tuesday, as tomorrow morning I drive the beloved to Royal Perth Hospital for his big op.  His lovely mum is staying with us which has been very helpful with his nibs, being waited on by all.  Will take the knitting and sewing to fill in the time.

another broken leg, nurse gladys back on the job

Who would have believed it, a slip on the gravel and down Grae went, breaking his leg once more, luckily it was the other one from last year.  I thought he was trying to get out of the big promises about the oysters he had just eaten, thinking he was pretending to moan all night, but poor darling was actually in agony.  Next morning, the said ankle was looking particularly nasty, so a quick trip to the hospital and plastered leg once more.  Latest info is an op next week to insert screws, and a plate to strengthen it, but worse, back on the needles in stomach to stop blood clots, I said I would happily do it for him, but strangely he doesn't seem to want me to, would rather we went to the hospital every morning, ye of little faith!   The bed has been moved downstairs, saving him going up and down the stairs on his rear end which looked painful without any undies on.  But tomorrow is another day, I will just have to give him lots of cuddles.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends too soon but that we wait so long to begin it.

For those of us born in the forties, and looking retirement in the eyes, but wanting just one more career before we hit the nursing home.  Being 60 these days is still very young, so much knowledge, so many things we still want to try, but also content at being 60.  Most days when I return home from work, the body is saying have a nap, but the mind says, go to your studio, make the most of every moment.  Choice becomes 15 minutes meditation then into the studio.  Just entering my pigpen, smelling paints, cloth fabrics drying on the tables, half finished pieces, almost orgasmic.  Hope hubby is going to cook tea.
