The good news is....

Daughter 2 does not have a brain tumour or a brain injury.

She does however have primary generalised epilepsy and will have to take medication for the rest of her life. The drug she's on can cause birth defects, so she can only have well planned pregnancies and can't drink alcohol at all. A certain light pulse sets it off, so no disco's for her anymore and she has to watch tv with the light on, she also has to be careful of flashes and flickering lights. But, she's fine, it could have been a lot worse.

I'm teaching Daughter 3 to gild this weekend LOL This shall be interesting! I'm also showing her how to mould a leather mask and some other stuff for her Art assignment. So we're having a Mother Daughter playdate. heh. I'll put some pics up.

I've also got a gilding workshop to organise for. I'm debating whether to cover oil gilding as well or just get them to concentrate on water gilding techniques. They'd probably only ever use gilding on paper, but it's always good to have a starting point for new techniques.

I'm working as an inhouse web designer for a printing business, so although I have been flat chat I don't have anything to put online. Still working towards an exhibition, so have enough to keep me out of trouble for a while.

Aussies had a good weekend in Motor Racing. I nearly fell off the bed when I switched to F1 and Mark Webber was 3rd. His car didn't croak it! Amazing.

Casey Stoner is doing well in Motogp, he doesn't look very fazed by anyone this season and Chris Vermulen is getting up there too.

All in all, it was a good weekend with all my fave sportsmen on top of the heap.

And, on that note, I am going to bed, I am exhausted! Night :-)

Thanks for checking out my stuff--sorry to hear about daughter. That really stinks, but exactly like you said--could be much worse. Glad to see an Aussie up--had a friend in Australia once, things got ugly. When I get time, I'll check our your blog here and there; I like your style.
