Survived that.....

The holiday season has almost finished, and I survived….
I managed everything that was thrown at me over the last 2 weeks, from looking after three  7 year-old children on school holidays, to entertaining people to buying presents (online) to going to the beach. It wasnt a roaring success but we all got through it… Having ms means having to cope with fluctuating functional abilities on an almost daily basis. I was getting about quite ‘fine’ until I went to the beach and somewhere along the way for whatever reason, my mobility rapidly got MUCH worse in an amazingly short space of time. Also for an unexplained reason my lower back went out compounding my already tottering movements. Anyhow. The band plays on.
Fast forward to today and I managed to submit an assignment to Openpoly technic which was becoming overdue, and also managed to take some more half-decent photos of the latest jewellery – the results of which are below…
