Gobsmacked



Talk about putting things out to the universe...

I just got a phone call from the local government-subsidised art studios who had broken my heart a couple of weeks ago (see point 6 of the last post)... Studio Duck is GO! Some circumstances have changed, and the space is now offered to me. I think I laid an egg during the call.

Best Beloved was out picking up the boychild, as were most of my local friends, and I had to talk to someone before I popped, so I rang Bernice and hyperventilated while she told me to breathe. And shrieked along with me when I did.

Holy shit! My whole universe just revolved around me and suddenly the world is a completely different place. I've had it happen to me plenty of times with bad news, but this beats all.

I wish I could drink, I'd be having a few tonight. I'm just going to have to eat chocolate until I burst my stitches. WOOT!

Hellooo... I have been remiss and not read your blog for a little while and didn't realise you were having the op! Been there myself, but had more bits taken out. All I can say is TAKE IT EASY!! I didn't (surprise, surprise) and nearly had to go back and have another operation. Oh dear, well you've tagged me now so I'd best move over to my blog and start making stuff up! Talk to you soon, Sara x

Excellent about the work space; what a difference it does make to be sure. If you want to drink then you must be recovering really well!

Congratulations Duck! Can't think of a single person who'll make better use of a studio of her own. Very exciting news.

Mummy/Crit said...

WOW!!! So excited for you, this has been a long time coming, eh?

M-H said...

What great news. I'm so pleased for you.

Ampersand Duck said...

Thanks, dudes. I'm still pinching myself!

Actually Pav, wishing isn't really wanting in this case. I really don't feel like drinking at all, which is probably a good thing. I'm not feeling fantastic today; living without the plastic support strip thingy isn't as good as when it was on! Still, a friend dropped around a huge pile of crap rom com DVDs and I'm making my way through it next to a jug of water and lots of chocolate. That's treat enough for now...

Hil said...

Fantastic - I'm really happy for you! I'm home and just catching up with blog news and the op; glad its over and went well.
