Wow, the last week has been way more crazy than I could have imagined and I can’t remember the last time I felt so stressed! I’m not one for complaining and don’t want this post to just be a moaning 23 year old but I have to be realistic!
Since losing my dog, I’ve been focusing hard on keeping busy, positive things such as my little sisters newly decorated bedroom and stepdads huge birthday cake have come from this. Whilst I have also become a god mother to two beautiful little boys, Alex and Harry. Yep, two of my friends had babies this week! I have also attended a conference about artist resideny programmes and civil engagement. So I can’t complain about that, there have been some positives.
Meanwhile in the land of crazy, which I am now sure I belong to…. Things have been kind of awful!
To start the week, one of my closest friends was rushed back to hospital less than 48 hours after delivering her baby boy. It turns out that she has a serious infection from her c-section birth which has left her apart from her newborn, her other two children and her hugs nab and even worse, left her fighting for her life. As you can imagine I’ve spent a lot of time in hospital visiting and am very hopeful that she is recovering and will soon be fully fit and well again. I can’t imagine how difficult it has all been for her or her husband but I have tried my best to be there as much as possible. It has really got me thinking about the fragilness of life.
As the week went on I was getting less and less sleep… 3-4 hours a night and not wanting to eat, stress and I don’t get along.
Further problems have arisen through my twin sister as her current care staff are currently removing her human rights and in effect neglecting and abusing her… She lives five hours away so my family and I have spent the last 48 hours searching, speaking advice, contacting managers and even ended up calling the police. Hopefully this problem will soon be resolved but in the meantime the worry doesn’t fade from my mind. But I’m keeping it together because we’re going through this as family and we all need to keep each other strong.
Ok, venting over! I will keep you all up to date with both above worries and really apologise for my lack in posts recently… My laptop is also being repaired my blog access is limited!
To end on a positive note as I hate to end things really sadly… I have spent the evening honoured to watch the very first showing of Signs of Silence by RM Moses, a short film I had the pleasure of working on… The official premiere is on the 13th October in London and I cannot wait!
