Honestly, I've been really bad at this blog thing. I've never kept it up, the last post was from 2021!
It's quite reflective really, about how some things have been going the last couple of years.
I went from a burn out straight into the pandemic, then a couple of months into that I actually caught the damn thing and have been dealing with the post-covid syndrome ever since.
It has gotten better though, slowly, oh so very slowly I started to be less tired all the time and with help from speech therapy I got my breathing back to (semi) normal. Unless there's a high humidity (I live in the Netherlands..that's a lot..) allergy season, or something funny in the air (smoke from fire or fireworks etc), then breathing is still harder.
And then I caught it again last November, holy pancakes was I sick....crying on the bathroom floor sick.....
But life, and work, goes on, and even though I am still tired at weird moments at times, and my breath doesn't always come easy, I got away fairly well I think.
Now I am ready to give this all a second chance, the blogging, the studio in general I guess. It has all been almost at a halt, with some lucky hits, for a while.
So today I started tidying up the room I use as a studio, I'm not finished, but I made a good start.
I freshened up the website and mailing list, reconfigured and updated some other administration stuff, and now I'm ready to go to bed.
Here's a look at one of my cute companions and what he's up to while I'm writing this...
