To cut a very dull story short, I ended up having a wee bit of a crisis, just with life in general. I think I just let everything get on top of me really.
Anyway... meds were prescribed..... I relapsed a few weeks back, and am just getting back on track with my medication at the moment.
One thing I have learned from all this is that pressure makes me ill, so I am going to have to try and tailor my life to deal with that.
I've taken to spending time in my little garden . It's so very therapeutic. I love to find all those little hidden away treasures in the garden.... a beautiful garden spider in it's web.... snails with those lovely stripey shells... odd looking little bugs, and finding plants emerging. I keep finding baby plants breaking through, and love waiting untill they grow to see what they might be. Just hope they're not all weeds, LOL
There's also a really amusing pair of magpies that I see in the tree most mornings... they are always squawking at eachother and playing chase me !!
I've bought some lovely plants to put in the garden too, and it's slowly becoming the little oasis that I want.
I am eventually getting back on track with my work too. So many times, it seems, I make progress, then it seems to crumble away from me. But hey ho.... I just have to keep plodding away and hope that one day things will become stable once again.
I think that spending time in my garden has had quite an influence on the beads I have been making just lately... I suddenly seem to have the urge to make little bugs, toadstools, and such like ... I am really enjoying making less 'sensible' beads... they are so cheerful and colourful, so I am going to keep running with it, to see where it takes me.
Anyway.... I'm going to have to get some stuff done here, am expecting mum at the door to pick the kids up, so I'll just leave you with a few random photos of what's been going on in the flame born house...
There are new beads cooling in the kiln as I type... so we'll see what comes out later :O)
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the World are the ones that do..." -- Jack Kerouac
