Must be a record!

Oooh, look at me go! Another post lol

Miss 6 is having her birthday party this Sunday, her 1st ever friends party. Little Miss Mercenary has already worked out the more she invites, the more presents she’ll get. 

Miss8’s chronic insomnia defeated her medication tonight, so right on cue, an hour after went to sleep, she woke up screaming with a night terror. So, I’m blogging :) 

Mr9 was extremely well behaved tonight lol He’s been having constant mini seizures 24/7 & he has a hard time controlling his behaviour when they are so active but when the activity seems to reduce he suddenly becomes well behaved, it’s almost like a switch being turned off & on. He’s taking his medication without any drama though, unlike Miss8 who we discovered was spitting hers out for weeks while all the adults were thinking she had other dire diagnosis’s. Little horror!

So, oh yeah, we bought a house 2 1/2 years ago & now I’m looking at making a wildflower/cottage garden/container garden, so I’ve been looking at Bunnings website & local nurseries. My favourite thing to do with my Mum was to go looking in nurseries every Sunday arvo. So, also putting in native plants to hopefully attract bees & butterflies. As I accidentally killed $300 worth of plants earlier this year, this time I’m only buying a couple at a time to hopefully defeat my black thumb! 

Suggestions welcome :)

I’m awake. Again. Nothing like having a kid with severe epilepsy start jumping around randomly on the bed to get your heart going. No seizure luckily but he was trying to  fit on the bed & pull his blanket over his head at the same time. He’s asleep again & I’m not lol Miss6 had her birthday yesterday, got almost everything on her list. Last night before bed she says I don’t want to be 6 anymore & wants to go back to being 5! 😂😂😂 

Hopefully I can get some more sleep now!

Haha, another 2 years has flown by! Sorry.

So, lots has happened & still happening. Still have the 3 musketeers. I’m still arting, took part in a pop up exhibition with some good feedback:) Currently I’m into acrylic pouring & abstract art. If you’re at my house & stand still, you may become an art work lolololol 
Anyway, must be off now, will be back in a day or so!

2013 - 2017

 Hello, wow 3 years since I last posted. Oops. Lots has happened, we bought a house, have 3 littlies living with us since 2014, so life is very busy & filled with grubby little hand prints on the walls & always empty tummies that constantly require filling from the toes up! Stopped arting for a while but just starting again now, have just started a new illumination on yupo paper. Finished a certificate in art therapy. Working with 2 kids with FAS amongst other issues. FIL passed away after 3 agonising months for him, was very sad to see. Now J & H, don't have a heart attack when you see I've posted 😂

back again!

Well, this year has been eventful so far. Very. Not entertaining though sadly, but made us busy bees running up and down freeways & highways of Victoria. Ahh well, the joys of family. Everybody is now on the way to recovery, recovered and oh, yes, D2 is about to have her D1 on New Years Eve. My parents are visiting in Jan/Feb and our house looks like it's been sold, so not sure yet when we have to move by, but they may have to sleep in their car. heh. ( I kid, I kid!)

Workwise, I have had to take breaks, due to illness, surgery, not being home much & limited in what I can lug around with me but I've had enough time in the last week to start work on a new project. It's taking a bit longer than I originally thought to get the basework done! Hopefully it turns out how I see it in my head.

Youngest is doing very well at school, especially in Art [ heh!] Youngest Daughter graduated & now lives with D2 in Melbourne. Very odd only having one kidlet at home & he's nearly 18, so I feel a bit empty nested now as he informs me he is completely independent now that he can microwave 2 min noodles :D

They found what was causing the weird ankle swelling, it's from my PSA flaring and affecting my achilles tendons, that's what the leg cramps were from at Superbikes, not dehydration. Physio hates me! not really.

Ok, well, now that I've rambled, I'll be off to get some sleep. It's very hard to get back into the swing of blogging but hopefully I'll be around a lot more now I've posted.

While I was away...

I've been doing a lot of research on surface analysis on a change of medium and technique to see if it would work and I wouldn't be so hampered by the weather when working. Apparently it might. or not. Depends on who you read. Only way to find out is to test it really, so everybody cross your fingers they don't crack! [please and anything else you might like to cross, unless you might get stuck like that!]  I also made the males in the house move my desks & cupboards around in my studio, so I have zones & more space. I've gotten quite a lot of ATC/ACEO's done as I kept finding inspiration as I fell down the rabbit hole and I've started using them as a kind of journal while I have my toe up in the air, they're a lot easier to juggle instead of a larger book.

All the new grandkids are doing well, along with their Mums. Gaining weight & becoming little people really quickly. 

One Sunday we hit the freeways at 4am to go gallivanting to Phillip Island to watch the Superbikes. Caught up with friends and had a great day although it was a bit hot. My favouritest motorbike rider, Max Biaggi was the star of the show, 1st and 2nd in an absolute cracker Race2 after he ran off the track and came back on in 21st place & then flew back up to 2nd. Was the best race I've watched. EVER! and added bonus he's now leading the championship & has the fastest lap record at PI. We were all standing on the tables cheering as he came down the straight to take 2nd. Big kids we are LOL

I got severely dehydrated and had to go home earlier than we planned, so missed out on dinner with everyone but they all enjoyed dessert for me. Evil friends I have! I had to be rehydrated so much that I can now tell you where every public toilet is between Phillip Island and Bendigo, surprisingly there a lot. I didn't get sunburnt but did get windburn and no, have no idea why I dehydrated as I was drinking water the whole day. The only thing we [ inc the Dr] can think of is the pain medication I'm on requires me to drink a lot more fluids than normal & it was when we had the mini heatwaves. Apart from that...????

I've broken the same toe twice now, once a few weeks ago trying not to kill a cat by stepping on it, then yesterday I tried to avoid killing the other cat, stepped on to the kitchen mat, slid wildly across the floor and the cupboard kindly broke my slide with my previously broken toe. I swear the cat smirked before she sauntered over to rub sympathy all over my face & then demanded to be fed. And everyone wonders why they're called Terra and Khaos.

oh! I forgot, I also play Words with Friends and Draw Something, my username is antikva so if you play, shoot me a game :)
