It's been a long time since my last post, the cause of this is illness.  If you remember when I last posted Neil had a chest infection which he not so kindly gave to me. I had to have two courses of antibiotics and steroids to shift it but have felt very poorly ever since, it never really went away. It was so bad that I went back to the doctors on Monday and he gave me some miserable news as well as a lecture. He thinks that because I was so poorly and didn't look after myself properly ( this was where the lecture came in all to do with the asthma and a naff immune system and something about I should know better but I didn't understand that bit) I also went down with a virus at the same time and that's what I'm left with. I have a fever, headache, aching limbs and joints everything that a virus is and a very croaky throat. As a result I'm having a real hard time coping with anything that's not routine and mundane, I'm finding it very hard to focus and stay on task and stay awake. I fell asleep this evening cooking dinner, but then I never have been very good in the kitchen.

Because of this I'm behind with everything, and the house is untidier than ever - the spiders think it's a holiday camp. It's not just my blog I'm behind with either I need to catch up on the ones I read regularly. As for homework I think I'l just put myself on the naughty step with no need to be told. I have managed to make my stamps but it took me three days to make two 4" square stamps! As you can probably guess I haven't been up to much creative wise so I will leave you with some pictures that I took at Salts Mill of David Hockney's work. They aren't the best pictures but I took them using my phone. If I had known how good the exhibition was going to be I would have taken my camera but after the disappointment of the R A Exhibition I wasn't expecting much, I was pleasntly surprised. The two really bright pictures are I Pad drawings.
   

 



My battery's nearly flat


I won't leave it so long before my next post.

I'm so sorry to hear you are still unwell Angela. I second everyone here, take a big step back, forget the house and everything else and look after yourselves until your health is fully restored. Lecture over LOL xx
