I've had this box for a while, it was plain brown, very boring brown... so I gave it a couple of coats of gesso.
So I'd best tell you about my mini break. I drove down on Sunday when, of course, we had that storm, which I encountered on the M6. At one point I couldn't see a thing, was down to 20 mph, and yet some idiots were still going at 70 mph. I came close to turning back for home as the weather was so bad, but I ploughed on and it did improve. I was very thankful to see signs for the town were my friend lives. On arrival I was told to sit down and do nothing! So my friend and her mum made a huge fuss of me all week. I have to say it was nice to have someone offer to make me a cup of tea, and sharing a meal with others. Mealtimes on your own is the pits.
So now back home. I had my art therapy yesterday, felt a bit down, the rest of the group were cracking on with their silk painting and I was at the design stage. I gave the class a miss last week as I really was having a bad day. One of the tutors came and chatted to me about my absence, she just wanted to make sure I was okay. I'm feeling better since I had the PIP decision, and now I have it in writing a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulder. My shingles appears to have been eczema, well that is what the other doc reckons, so now I have some cream for it. My BP was high, had to have that done so I could get more HRT, I put the high reading down to a panic attack I'd had earlier. the doc checked my records and could see it was just a spike.
So tomorrow the box is to be finished, and I must complete my Mandala as it is needed for an exhibition! It is just for the Art Therapy group, the organisers like to put the work on display.
Well stay dry and warm. Thanks for stopping by
