THERE HAS BEEN WORK, OH YES THERE HAS.

Sigh. apologising for the lack of posts seems to be a habit these days. Let’s just take it as read, shall we?

There’s been a couple of reasons for my absence. Work has been mad– we’re coming up for the 2010 Nyoongar Art Awards, a major art award the City of Rockingham co-presents with the Town of Kwinana, and part of the grand prize each year is a solo exhibition for the winner. And I’m the one who puts it together, so the last couple of weeks I’ve been hip-deep in phone calls to art galleries to arrange transport of artwork, organising invitation designs, sourcing catering, talking to wineries about label printing…. all the fun things that go on behind the scenes before an exhibition hits the gallery space.

Then there’s been the sickness. No sooner had Luscious and Aiden recovered from bouts of bronchitis than Connor decided to have a turn. By last Friday his coughing was so constant that he ended up at Rockingham hospital, then spent the weekend at Fremantle Hospital whilst Lyn and I took it in turns to stay the night and run back & forth to Mandurah to transport toys, clothes, and other sundries. Turns out our little boy doesn’t do things by half– the bronchitis triggered a series of asthma attacks, which helped bring on a bout of croup. At least, that what the paediatrician said. A week off school seems to have helped– now he only coughs when he needs to remind someone he’s sick, usually if it means getting dessert early…

So, mad as it’s been, it’s been Life. Still, I’m back now…
