Can you tell what it is yet?

It's really great to be back to posting on my laptop, I've been so meh this past few weeks that I've just been eating and sleeping, I haven't had the energy to use my laptop for decent amounts of time, instead relying on my phone to read everyone's blogs. I think in part it's my health being a bit poo and partly because of the time of year. I always feel better when its lovely and sunny and warm. Anyway....

I've had a productive day today, trying out a few new things with my glass. I've been attempting to make shapes, its not been totally successful but I know I'm a bit better now at scoring and breaking than I was at the beginning. I'm in that rare( for me!) state in that I have a good idea what I am planning to make, normally I just make it up as I go along. This time though I sat down and planned it all out, drawing what I wanted, then altering when I found fault with the design. I really enjoyed the whole process, choosing colours, doing a bit of research and getting started. I must say that even though I had a plan I still ended up changing things in the actual making stage. Here is a pic of some of the items I used and the progress I made today. I wonder if you can work out what I am hoping to make... It's not very obvious at this stage.

I was shattered after doing all that scoring and cutting out.

I went to clinic yesterday, it went OK, I've put on a whole kg! wooooot! Only one more and I'm at my target :D :D :D Also got jabbed in the arm with flu vaccine. It's strange after all the needles I've had but that one makes me a bit :S Still, the nurse fussed me and let my mum hold my hand! HAHAHA! I wasn't that bad!
My lung function is down on last time which wasn't a big surprise after all the drama of a few weeks ago with the pleurisy. Luckily it's not a massive drop, I'm on my lower side of normal and so I'm booked in to go for a course of I.V's but not for three weeks. I could have started now and done them at home but I like ( actually like isn't the right word.. maybe accept is better) to go in for a week, have a drug called aminophyllin over night which can't be given as an out patient, and do some heavy duty physio. I then do the last week at home. I'm already planning what to take in with me to keep me occupied.. you'd think after doing this for 26 years I'd have it down to a fine art. HA! My laptop is a must, maybe my epic beadspead project and some jewellery making bits and pieces so I can put together a few things while I'm in. This gives me a great excuse to buy some more beads :D

Hope everyone's having a great Thursday.



  1. Productive days are so much nicer if you've had to wait for them! And the glass... come on!! Tell me!! :D

  3. Are they petals? I'm thinking poppy but maybe they're Autumn leaves

  4. I have no idea what you're up to but I can't wait to see the finished product!

  5. Can't wait to see! And it does feel good to sit down and plan something doesn't it.
