changing times...

you may (or may not) have noticed i've changed my  blog a tad - the header actually... hey, they say a change is as good as a holiday... so i went on a 'journey of discovery', scrolling through image after image... i had a minimum requirement - it had to contain a womon, a book, and an animal...




well, i found a graphic i really liked... it's by an artist named Jim Warren - "From the wild & whimsical to the sweet & sensuous, for over 40 years Jim Warren has been painting his way into the hearts and minds of people the world over. Already considered a "living legend of the art world", Jim continues to surprise and amaze"... opposite is his original and i just couldn't resist it... i love the illusion of the sand as mattress, and the water as blanket... i might have to use more of his graphics on my blog!!!!





i may one day even change the colour scheme of my blog - or not - but that is certainly for the future...


anyway i've spent quite some time on this little project so the post is short because now i have to go and tend to me mother - she needs some shopping and just can't get out (pity her son, my brother, doesn't think to drive over and help out - yeah, he's got a car, but when you need him there's always a reason he can't make it)... she's been really unwell - a bad cold on top of everything else - so long as it doesn't evolve into pneumonia she'll be okay (sort of)... but she's just about had enough now because her kidney disease is wearing her out... weakness, fatigue and inability to go anywhere are taking their toll...

hey, the new look is lovely, what a great and soothing image! I hoped you had an enjoyable Friday eve with your bottle of vino, before being on call to help your Mum. Sorry she's had another setback though, and sorry D doesn't feel the same tug you do to help her out. A most relaxed and deeply comforting weekend here. I'm feeling a little more braced for the week ahead. Ho hum.

thanks Lil... so glad things seem to have taken a good turn for you and your babe... how is the wee boy? less distressed at least it sounds like...

as it turns out with me mum - by the time i got there at midday to do her shopping she was really bad and had to go to hospital... so i got on to darrell and he did come over with that wee emergency... turns out she's got pneumonia!!! she's had it once before and nearly died!! we've not long left the hospital - about 7 hours we were there and she'll be there for a couple of nights...

so it's back in to the alfred tomorrow morning to try and find out what her prognosis is...

life oh so sucks sometimes... but i've still got a couple of glasses of that bottle left which i think are deserved now (along with a few bongs, of course!!)

Hope you and your mum are doing ok. We're thinking of you woman!
