Hi everyone,

Well Im still feeling a bit down - not as bad as the other day - but I suppose down is the wrong word - maybe anxious is better. Im anxious that Im not going to get all my work done in time for the exhibition. Im anxious that John's job might not be good and that we have a huge debt now with the new car!!!. Suppose its always hard when life changes and it's a risk! Let's hope it works out ok.

Anyway, my trouble at college is that my tutor found me a room (well sort of long cupboard) for my installation - I moved all my stuff yesterday into the space then today moved it all out again!! Sonja was the tutor today and she agreed with me that the space just wasnt right!! But then that means that I either have to build another one in college somewhere, or get a shed and put it in the playground or just make do with this cupboard - i mean I could make it look good but I have a bad feeling when Im in there! Wierd!!!  Anyway Im off to look at sheds with John in a mo and maybe i could go that way - more expense though - but this is my major show and it's taken me three years to get here! I dont want to just make do!!!!

Will let you know how Im getting on - also got some more pics to post later.

Laine xxxxxxx

You do have a lot to contend with at the moment Laine ~ but life does change  ~ John has made his choice and thought carefully before making his decision ~ and I wish him all the best in his new Job ~ Hope you sort your space out at college I am sure you will think of something ~ I do hope the college can find you a bigger and better space without you having to resort to buying a shed ~ as this is so important for you ~ Ally

You are having a lot of changes at the moment....I would be very anxious as well ( I am anyway, but changes make it worse!!) Try and take it easy over the weekend........I'm sure John's new job will be fine, the first few days will be the worst! Blimey, I would say the bad feeling is claustrophobia!!! You need to be happy in your space.....get a shed!!

I don't think you should go with the space if it isn't feelin' right!!  Hope you manage to find somewhere though.  Hope your anxiousness will leave soon :-)

Change stresses all of us in one way or another. I have to hand it to you. Going back to school at age 40 is hard and you are doing it. So, with the understanding that you are doing something that awesome take into account there is going to be associated stress.
You go girl!
