it's a beautiful day...

*cartoon from http://www.leunig.com.au/cartoons/

and yes I didn't let it get away. Lucy and I went down to Elwood beach after school and spent a wonderful late afternoon enjoying a sumptuous sun filled day. Wow, can you notice that my mojo is coming back with all these superlatives!! Yes, it has been a hard few months and you may have noticed the down turn in my posting. You see I suffer from that black cloud or black dog whatever you want to call it - depression. It can really take the wind out of your sails and I've spent a good deal of time lately contemplating the back of my eyelids. But we (the psych and I) have done some changes to the drugs and some therapy and things are looking up... in fact when you know about being down, you can feel the pull of up, and it's like its very own drug. the only way is up is how I feel right now, and I'm hoping it will last for a long time. so enough about that...

The title of this post is also in reference to the constant U2ing that is happening in this household. My partner is a fanatical U2 fan, in fact he's a fan club member! So, first we had the music and dvd onslaught in lead up to the concert, with R openly manipulating Miss L's music tastes. Now, we have the "we went to the concert and loved it and just can't get enough" onslaught. Don't get me wrong - I thought the concert was fantastic, but enough already - I like a little variety in my music. Lucky we have our own iPod's or things could get really nasty here!! and yes, Miss L now can spot Bono in a crowd.

As for crafting - well there is none of that in this post - nope none at all - there is in fact very little to report even, so I'll make sure to kick that butt in the right direction and have something for you soon.

Really nice to see you back!
Nothing better than that feeling that things are on the rise - like someone lifted the curtain and you can finally see the sunshine!

Depression is such a serious and missunderstood condition. I must confess at one stage I was one of those who though" get over it your life is not so bad" But now having a couple of friends suffering and seeing how it consumes them and they have no control over it, I am now soo sympathethic. So glad you have the medication worked out and things are looking up.
I have my Morphe toys home and the crafting girls are enjoying their new home!!! They are wonderful, beautifully made. Thank you

glad to hear you are walking the on the brighter side of the road, esp before the end of year festivities begin. It can be a daunting time.

A friend of a friend went to the Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne U2 concerts...must have put their house on a 2nd mortgage.

I'm a Leunig nut and have some of his artwork in our house. He touches on so many aspects of human and animal nature.
