Well, the re-painting works have come to a grinding halt. Not because of the size of the bump (as Sharon foresaw and I feared), but because of these:
Apparently all the pain and swelling (and the numbness at night) I’ve been suffering with in my hands is pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome. So now I have to sleep with wrist splints on, and I am also to wear them when my hands are at rest during the day. I am hoping that after a few nights of wearing the splints I might be in less pain during the day and might be able to get back to doing a bit more again (like the painting, say). Simon has said he will finish off the painting when he has a couple of days off after Christmas.
In the meantime, we are off on holiday! We are going to Bruges (Belgium) for 4 days, coming back on Saturday night. We have been before, both separately and together, and it is a charming place and quite easy to get around on foot. I’m looking forward to those Belgian chocolates!
