Just a quick update to say that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. Things are about to get crazy though...
I finished my office job yesterday (on amiable terms) and now have one week to pack up all my stuff and get my Jersey affairs in order as I am moving back to Durham. I feel that sentence should probably have an exclamation mark or something at the end of it as it's a pretty big deal but I am too stressed out to feel excited at the moment.
In one short week I am going to be living in my house, have daily access to my garden, be able to throw myself into self-sufficiency, become a self-employed artist and actually get to be with the man I love. The last 5 years have been hell but it was my choice to stay in Jersey and the pay off is definitely worth the sacrifice.
All the packing, moving, unpacking and organising will mean that I am offline for a few more weeks still. I see there is a lot of interesting and beautiful new artwork in my messages which I am looking forward to viewing properly when I have the time. I will also be producing new artwork of my own once I am settled in up north.
In the meantime I hope you are all well and enjoying the spring. xxx
ps: No this journal is not an April fools, I really have quit my job and really am moving back home.
