This morning, I saw my osteopath for a regular checkup. I sat there wheezing... She recently attended a course about dealing with trauma injuries - stuff like car accidents, falls etc. Part of the course dealt with chest issues and this morning she put some of her new-found expertise into practice and worked on my chest and breathing.
All I can say is, "Yay for Ostepathy!". I went in to see her feeling squashed, breathless, rather ill; I came out breathing normally for the first time in at least two weeks, with my back no longer aching either, able to stand up straight (hadn't even realised I wasn't until it happened!). Talk about a sudden recovery. So long as I keep up with my inhalers and don't overdo it, I think I will now recover - hooray!
Soooo.. what has LizzieMade been up to in the past fortnight, other than wheezing and coughing?
Well, there's been plenty of "mummy-sitting" to do, as my mum has still had problems of various kinds. I hope she is going to be ok now, as I'm very busy with preparation for the Children's University workshop week, which I will be teaching in August, plus packing and preparing for our holiday next week.
I thought I'd pop a few photos up, to show what I'm doing just now. I also finished the two recipe books that I posted about last time, plus a couple of other books, but I don't have photos yet, so these will follow asap.
Today I'm joining in with Julia's "WOYWW", which you can find at her blog, "Stamping Ground". When you've finished looking at my desk, why not pop over there and follow a few links, to see what else is going on in the Blogosphere?
Lots of reference material and notes...
Collecting possible materials...
Typing the Course Plan...
Making and collecting Examples and Sample Books
There's a meeting tomorrow evening, for tutors, at the place where the course will be held. I need to have my Course Plan and materials list all prepared... So back to work for Lizzie!
PS. Just wanted to clarify something about the photo of books. I didn't make all these myself. The yellow folded mini-book/card with stripes was made by Mel (of ISpeakMelsh), the yellow and green folded book beneath it was made by a friend, Carolyn, the deep burgundy-red palmleaf book under those two was given to me by Mia Leijonstedt when I attended her workshop day in June, and the wine coloured little suede journal was made by the fabulous Katie of Linen, Laid & Felt - one of my Etsy bookbinding colleagues. Just wanted to set the record straight, as I never like to deceive anyone and my friends deserve recognition!
