Wow. Long time no blog.
Things have been a wee bit tricky around here with not the least of our problems being a buggered hard drive ... on a six month old computer! Which is why I am also a bit behind in sharing what was (so glad it's past tense), my creative space a week or so ago ...
My poor little fellow had a runny nose that quickly became difficulty breathing which then had us racing back to hospital only a few months after our last visit. This time though the poor tike wound up with pneumonia which saw us moving into the hospital for a week. Half way through our stay we got the news that in fact he had a respiratory virus as well, which meant we were moved into an isolated room which he was not allowed to leave.
Enter the books, DVD's, finger puppets, favourite toys, and thanks to the proximity of Art on King, scissors, paper and copious amounts of glue and we had ourselves a regular little hospital room creative space going on!
And what about my creative space? Well thanks also to the (too) close proximity of countless bookshops and Mag Nation (thanks Bianca!) I had a spot of reading material
And after staring at the hard cold surfaces of a hospital room it was only so long before a bombing was required ... my first!
I also used my camera as a way of "seeing" what I couldn't "see"
More of these can be seen here.
I have to say a massive "thanks" to all my twitter buddies who were literally my lifeline to the world outside the hospital ward and for all the local offers of help and donuts (why did I refuse those?).
For more and no doubt healthier creative spaces duck on over to Kirsty's place.
p.s The boy is back to his usual healthy self ... cross fingers!
