So long since I posted! I have been shaken out of my reverie by a kindly follower who emailed to see if I was okay. Thank you.
The truth is, I have been enjoying life with a minimum of injections and doctors appointments, so much so I have slipped away from here a bit. Only one more treatment to go. I am counting down the days till the 26th of March. Yes it's true, I have been having intravenous treatment for that long - 15 months.
But I do realise that if I tell people about the cancer and then don't blog, it may make people think the worst.
Fear not, dear readers. Am feeling fantastic. But am sorry for lack of comments. Really I Must Do Better.
I have been doing a little project at the beach which took longer than it should due to delays with the wallpaper samples arriving.
It is very simple, but makes my son's very plain little room a bit more perky.
Here is his little bed:
Longtime readers will remember I made the boat pillow during a Sunday afternoon burst of creativity.
I have found Pottery Barn and the Land of Nod to be invaluable online resources. These places probably seem basic to readers from the US but for mine simple reasonable quality children's linen which is not festooned with superheroes or Thomas the Tank Engine is not easy to come by here in Australia. This cover is an all in one padded doona. Really easy to clean, and lies flat.
There are some shelves in this room where we keep books and clothes.
I got some sample wallpaper online and lined the shelves like this:
It doesn't intrude into the zen whiteness of the room, but it really make the shelves a focus point. The wallpaper is by Thibaut and Ralph Lauren. UK wallpaper sites are happy to send lots of samples to you, sometimes for free, sometimes for a small fee.
In other news, I have joined Twitter. Not 100% sure why, as I always said I have nothing interesting to say in less than a short paragraph. But we shall see. It does allow me to spy on people I have long been a little bit secretly obsessed with like Anthony Bourdain and Bret Easton Ellis. Feel free to follow me. I will not be bombarding you with tweets, I can assure you.
Next on the list, Pinterest.
