container......

Wow, have I taken a dive!

Retired and tore a ligament in my knee almost at the same hour!

Talk about slowing down. Im almost at a snails pace right now, with surgery on the horizon.

For a couple of weeks, I was discombobulated and frustrated. 

Now Im just discombobulated, with a dose of low mood! 

Such plans.....London to see the Alexander Mc Queen exhibition, meeting friends for coffees and lunches and some more useful stuff like helping out at the local food bank. Nada! 

(I heard that the Mc Queen exhibition is highly misogynistic ..... anyone out there seen it to confirm/deny?).

Feeling pretty lifeless but got my head around this weeks Kim Klassen prompt, which was about using different containers.

Grabbed some two-lips, (granddaughter speak) and a rather nice, but useless artists box that I bought a while ago as I thought it was a bargain.....it wasnt!

Made the mistake of not spotting the pollen.....

Anyway, week 47 of 52. Im no stiller than I was this time last year, but Im slower!

Here are my results.....how did you get on with it?
