It’s been a busy couple of weeks, with most projects on hiatus. For those of you who don’t read mytholder’s blog, his mother has been very ill – mainly due to a bout of pneumonia on top of an existing lung condition. She’s on the mend now, and will hopefully be leaving hospital within the week (so we are frantically cleaning and clearing her house).
We’ll be trying to get back to some semblance of normalcy this week, but this chapter of Fish for Fish may be delayed a bit further as I work on some design and other projects (some of which may make an appearance on this site eventually).
My design course is going well, and I’m going to miss it when it finishes at the end of this semester. I’ll have to make sure I continue working on it and try to build up a portfolio. Some of the projects we’re doing as part of the course will give me a step up on that, at least.
I’m hoping to start the “sister course” in Digital Imaging in January, but there’s a chance it won’t be running if they can’t get the numbers.
In other news, we now have a car. I feel some eco-guilt about this, but given that the public transport system in Ireland is so very very shoddy, and we will probably need it for Mother Transporting, I feel we can justify it. I’ll probably continue to walk out to CIT and back twice a week, though. I need to renew my provisional license and I’ll probably need to take a few driving lessons as it’s been 6 years since I’ve been behind the wheel.
I’m also flying over to England on Saturday to visit a good friend, so, additional eco guilt there. At least the car means the ferry will be a viable option for future trips.
That’s all for now. More updates to come as life allows.
