I almost lost the plot entirely this weekend when my printer decided to pack up, but after a couple of days rest it has mystically fixed itself (yay for the printer pixies).
I'm off to Coventry again tonight, I'm going to see my friend who had the big op and tell her how incredible she is. I'm also hoping to pop in to see a gallery that another friend, Emma, is starting in the canal basin in Cov. One thing about my friends is there is never a dull moment.

I know some one super whizzy could do this quickly, whilst standing in their head and baking cakes, but whizzy I am not... although I wish I was.... so my blogging has become a little sparse again.
Good news is that my pal is home amongst friends and family. I can't believe any one could bounce back from brain surgery so quickly. Woot woot. I'm going to visit her next week and give her tonnes of hugs.

I'm now creating 'To Do' lists, problem is they're growing and growing. Near the top are :
- Tinkering with my website, I'm bored of the old one and need to get more new work on there.
- Sending out some promotion, no point creating these things if no on ever sees them.
- Getting a move on with my Ma, after a little set back it's time to get things going.
But this weekend I'm heading home to see friends and family, much needed. I'll probably eat more chocolate than I should too, again much needed. So everything else will have to wait till next week.

A group of lovely peeps at Flickr are organising an exhibition and auction for her (see here), so I've been working on my contribution - the theme is PINK as it's her favourite colour.

It's the sign for the opticians, it watches you walk right up the street and is padlocked to that wire frame so no one steals it. I love it, it is properly crazy if not slightly freaky. I think it's maybe those sleepy eyelids that makes it endearing. I think more businesses should have wooden signs like this - a mouth and teeth for the dentist... I don't know, it was only an idea....

I can't describe how relieved and happy I am. It's really been on my mind and I've not been on form, but now I just feel so grateful.
The lovely peeps of flickr land have started a group in her honour - ' Lil's cheer up gang ' They hope to organise an exhibition and art auction so if you're interested check it out.

A very close friend who I love to pieces is in hospital today waiting for brain surgeory. She has a tumour and although it's benign it's still bloody scary. She's brave and tough but I can't stop thinking about her and what she's going through.
I've known her since I was nine, she and her daughter feel like family to me. She has been through so much before and always come through smiling, I hope with all my heart that she will be back to her bouncy fun-loving self soon.
The operation is on Monday, I doubt I'll rest until she's in recovery.
