"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Stella: one of those (increasingly) rare moments where she's happy to play up for the camera.

Ruby: post-op recovery lemonade in her Dad's t-shirt with her new owl toy.

This week has been a big one. Emotionally and physically, it's taken it's toll. Ruby underwent a minor surgical procedure under a general anaesthetic. You'd think I'd be relaxed with this, as it's something I do everyday in my line of work (not on people though!). But although I held it together until we entered the surgery and they put her under, I was a blubbering mess on the way out. I take my hat off to those anaesthetists. Goodness, the pressure...

My blog posts have been scant, of late. My days are taken up with work, family and crafting. Soon, soon, I'll be back with something other than the portrait project!

Linking in with Jodi, at Che and Fidel

  1. I know just how you feel. My son had to have a general anesthetic a few months ago for a simple procedure, When I had to leave him I was a sobbing mess. He was awake 20 minutes later (and grumpy as hell) but it was still stressful. I hope she's all ok now. x


It's always a thrill to get comments. Makes my day! Thanks for stopping by xx
