At first the lead & her pulling on it hurt my shoulder & arm but after a while I think it strengthened it as it's beginning to feel better.
I finally got a diagnosis too of frozen shoulder which has helped enormously. I'd been thinking that I'd damaged myself beyond repair, but the wonderful osteopath Bruce Cameron that I went to see last week has helped me feel a ray of hope that I might end up in one piece again in the near future. He was so consoling, saying that usually after 3 weeks of such unremitting pain, thoughts of suicide would surface; it's been 5 months and there has been a lot of that going on (see last post!)
The other thing that's helped ENORMOUSLY is that I have a job! At a company called Silkworld and I'm here to tell you soon we'll be called Silk Universe! There are so many beautiful fabrics that I can hardly contain myself.This is the lunch room filled with samples of amazing beaded goodies.
The other amazing aspect of having a job is that you get paid and when you've worked for yourself for years, let me tell you, that is such a novelty.
So now instead of the full aisle of crisps in every English supermarket, there is an entire aisle of tinned tomatoes. Melbourne and Northcote in particular has a huge Italian population and the culinary rewards are great.

Harmaniax last weekend at a groovy pub called the Pinnacle. It was so very good to see some great music played by a relaxed & proffessional bunch.
So things are on the up & up. Mind you it's till BLOODY HOT here.
