Mixed Emotions

I've just had a great day at work, an absolutely nourishing day working on art with people I've never met before - and producing wonderful and inspiring results. I wish for more days like this, and that my future work can head ever more in this direction.

My grandmother is 93 today, I never thought that she'd get this far, and this time last year I thought that her 92nd birthday would more than likely be her last. My sincerest birthday wishes to her, bless her soul.

My mother is in hospital and I'm really saddened, upset and concerned.

ooo, I hope your mum gets better.

I know what you mean about your grandparents lasting longer than you expect. My grandfather is still going strong at 104. We didn't think he was going to make his 100th at one stage.
