Got a reason to smile

Some kind person bought a framed print of man of steel today. It’s my first framed print sale and I’m still in shock. I thought I’d never sell one.

The sale has come at an odd time too. I was thinking about getting rid of my redbubble profile. I’d recently received a breach notice/warning from the bubble about that very photo and I have to admit it really put me off the bubble. I seem to be going through an extended creative lull at the moment. I have very little inclination to do anything. It’s been a few weeks since I picked up my camera. I am unsure about if I even want to keep taking photos. I’m don’t feel like I’m improving or that I’m taking anything that’s particularly interesting.

But it feels really good to have sold something 🙂

Okay, I’m really accident prone lately

In the last three weeks I have:
1. Irritated the nerves in my right shoulder to point where it hurt to breathe.
2. Jarred my left ankle playing kick-to-kick in the park with a soccer ball.
3. Slipped over and whacked my left knee. The bruise is spectacular at the moment. I also hurt my right palm from putting my hand down to try to break my fall.
4. Fallen off my bike. It was the first time I’ve been on it in years. I scrapped my right elbow, gave my right hip a good whack and will have matching bruises on the inside of both knees from the crossbar on my bike.

I am one banged up chick at the moment.

At least with the bike accident it means I’ve gotten it out of the way. I’m riding to work from Monday and I knew at some point I was going to fall off. Everyone who’s ever ridden a bike has had at least one accident. (I’m up to five significant accidents.) It’s done now. I’m also really glad I didn’t do the normal thing and put my arm out to try to break my fall. I probably would’ve broken my arm.

I’m officially old

Whilst out having brunch with my parents a few days ago, the guy taking our order said to me: And what will you have, ma’am?

Someone called me ma’am. It’s all downhill from here.

No one else might care but I think it’s exciting: my name in a comic book.
