Hello my friends,
How has your week been?
I want to tell you that mine has been awful.
I want to tell you that poor Mr C has really struggled with his spinal surgery, that things just have not been going right for him lately. I want to tell you how Master J has struggled this week with hay fever, and stress of school, and has been all over the place emotionally. I want to tell you that all this stress has been playing havoc with my depression despite my best efforts to give up sugar and take better control of my health. I want to tell you that I have thought so much about drinking this week that for a moment I forgot why the hell I became sober in the first place. I want to tell you that I nearly, very nearly, crumpled in a heap on the floor and just gave up.
Instead, I’m going to show you stuff I made. Because creativity helps me when I’m under stress. Because I need to do something with my hands that isn’t housework when I am living so badly inside of my head that it feels like it is going to explode. Because, I just need to feel like I have some control over something in my life.
They aren’t perfect, but someone somewhere in this world is going to get them anyway. And who knows, they might inspire you to get on your bike and do your own creations.
