Long time no see...

It has been so long since I wrote a blog that I had forgotten my log-in details. My brain did spring into action for which I am very grateful!

So much has happened since the last few blogs about my exhibition that I simply could not write as I did not know where to start. But a phone call from a reader-friend from Israel asking me the whereabouts of my blogs, photos from my garden, creative projects... prompted me to make a start anyway. Anywhere.

So, for today, in a nutshell, I finished my first year in college, and have it is in writing that I am an excellent student. Proud or what! Around the time of this accomplishment I had the very unsettling experience of being tested, probed and operated on my breast for suspected breast cancer. It all happened rather quickly. It proved to be benign. Thank you to the friends who were aware of this and stood my me. Thank you.
On a more happier note, I am now the proud owner of a greenhouse, almost to be called a conservatory, or sunroom (when the sun shines). I eat, sleep (midday naps) and pretty much live there. And then last week I spend another week in hospital under the care of the neurologists. An interesting event to say the least.
My course is 'paying' of in a way as I have been consulted by the staff of the IWA (Irish Wheelchair Organisation) to help to clarify their services to the people with mobility or sensory impairment in my local area.
Busy or what!
On all of the above I endeavour to write more, accompanied by images requested by my dear Israeli friend.

So for now...
My garden
...if only I could add the scent of these roses in the blog... Devine! 

ps... As always it is lovely to know that you stopped by to read my musing and follow my creative adventures. It would make my day if you leave a comment... ? Many thanks & Lots of love Corina

Hey Corina! Good to hear the latest! Some scary shit and some good news. That's life, I guess.

Barbara and I often muse about how gorgeous your place is. The above photo corroborates this once again!
