I've been looking forward to this very Thursday for about a month now, ever since I signed up to weekly art classes at my local adult learning centre. I've been before for a few terms, but not to art classes for a while now as I couldn't manage them and photography. This term I swapped the two hours of photography for two of drawing and painting. Although I was a bit apprehensive about how well I would manage today, I'm pretty exhausted from a trip to Bath earlier this week. It went well though, we set up and sketched our own still life drawings of lemons and limes with the aim of adding water drops. It's not my favourite kind of art but it's good practice and also so nice to get lost in drawing again.
As I mentioned I went to bath on Monday. It's been a very long time since my mum and I visited the beautiful city and we've been talking about going for ages. It was a big thing for me to do, and I had to push myself a lot even with the few hours meditation and rest at the b&b and I really needed a wheelchair on Tuesday, but I just about managed. I'm so glad we went though, we had so much fun which outweighs the struggles that go with a trip like this and chronic illness. I've got so many photos to share in another post.
It's been a pretty busy week for me, I'm so thankful that I've managed as well as I have and that I don't feel as bad as I could! Still, I'm hoping for a quieter week next week to regain some energy.
