I started this one before my return to work a fortnight ago. I noticed as I was completing it this weekend that it’s a little disjointed in places which may symbolise how I was feeling about the return to work. The photograph really doesn’t show the colours properly, nor the shimmer and shine of the metallics. However, you do get an idea of what it looks like.
I made it back to work for the start of the Summer Term. My voice, however, is still not right. Work have referred me to occupational health and for speech therapy. Also, there’s a microphone/speaker system on order for my room so that I won’t have to raise my voice. My doctor has referred me to ENT to have my voice checked out.
The worst thing of all, is I still can’t sing. I love to sing, have always sung with one choir or another since I started secondary school. I join in the singing at any gathering where there is some. This bout of laryngitis has affected that part of my voice, and I really, really do hope it will return properly and fully.
The handbrake broke on the car a couple of days ago. As I’m writing this, I’m waiting for my nephew, who’s a whizz with cars, to come and see what needs to be done.
This is on top of a water leak from the toilet cistern a couple of weeks ago that came through the downstairs ceiling.
The ‘earphone’ on my mobile has stopped working too.
I hope that’s the triad of breaking done with!
