Almost Home

And once again I've let the blog go for a few months before updating. I know, I know. I'm always apologising for this, but the truth of the matter is, I -have- been busy with some key things in life.

I've just been through a crazy three week period in which my first jewellery bazaar and my 2nd level Australian Kodaly Certification went head-to-head. I survived both with sanity a little less than intact, and passed my certification exams far better than I expected.

And got a bout of gluten poisoning/food poisoning to celebrate.

But this morning, some friends and I went to help out at a house - the little boy's room needed painting, and the mother needed the wire nettings on the windows changed and some water pipes fixed. It's hard to be a single parent, working as many hours as she does, and I really admire her. I couldn't stay long because my stomach decided to run riot, but I was very glad I could be there for even a short time to help clean.

One more week till I go home for a much-needed break. One more level before I finally get the full Australian Kodaly Certification I've been working on for two years.

In more than one way, I'm almost home. And it's a good feeling.

That's awesome to hear you did well on your certification and survived your bazaar also. I'm proud of you! Very sorry to hear about the gluten/food poisoning though.

How common is gluten reaction? It seems to affect an unusually large number of my net friends.

'Tis never a bad thing to leave one thing aside (in this case, the blog) for a bit to focus on other more important parts of your life.

Again, congrats on your sucesses and I'm sorry to hear about your recent bout of gluten poisoning. May 2011 be pain- and harm-free for you, my dear.

And today is a most blessed day, so Merry Chirstmas to you and your loved ones, from CK & me. Hugs! :)
