These were the latest two postcards I made - using up samples from the dyeing course as mentioned on previous blogs. Only these samples have pieces of zip in them to add to the scrunchy texture.
As you may have noticed I have not written for a few days - I've not been feeling myself at all - I've had a busy time at work, very busy in fact, but that's nothing new. My daughter has had some issues recently with a friend that has caused a lot of hurt and that has not helped as I am once more helpless to do anything, like I was with my Dad.
I have been sinking lower and lower - since my op I have not been able to exercise and have gained just over 14 lbs in weight! I had lost a couple of pounds but it easily crept back on and increased. I had a hospital review last week and was able to confirm that I should not have suffered any pain after my op etc etc - the consultant spent ages apologising - I think he was concerned I would consider suing the hospital and it's staff. The good news was that all is progressing well and all was well after the entire gland was removed.
I went shopping with my daughter Emma today - to cheer ourselves up - I tried on loads of tops and some dresses and although I did buy just a couple of tops - I came away hating myself even more. I hate my weight, my hair, I hate myself for hating myself!! I find my job exhausting, I have no creative inspiration although I have lots of ideas. I just want to sleep!
Over the last couple of days I have received some lovely, beautiful postcards - below from Angela, Chris, Jo and Romana - from various group swaps. THANKS to all.
This final one, below, is from a very dear friend - Karin - who lives in Oman - the postcard arrived nude and in perfect condition. There is some much interest on this card - I will be looking at it for ages to work out exactly what Karin has done. Thanks.
