Spring Valley has been complaining about people neglecting their 'sensible':
Mine's so neglected it must be in a semi-comatose state.
Tomorrow I have to set up my first selected group show:
As I've mentioned before I've never done this before and have no idea what to expect. I've also illustrated about 8 of my pieces in the last two weeks, so it's been hectic. But instead of having a relaxing day, pottering around and making sure everything's ready to go tomorrow, I agreed to walk 10km as part of the Melbourne Marathon with my best friend.
I know 10km doesn't seem like a big deal, but let me paint the picture for you.
I'm about 30kg overweight, my idea of exercise is walking from the couch to the fridge and, no, I didn't do any preparation for this feat of endurance. Nor did I wear in my new sneakers before stepping across the start line. (Sensible? Are you listening?)
I also have no idea of distance so I figured I'd jog through the MCG for the final '400m' - hang about - what do you mean that's a jog around half the footy ground?
Everything hurts. I may need a new hip.
And tomorrow I'll be lugging 11 new illustrations in their heavy, heavy frames across the city and (I imagine) hopping up and down a ladder to install them.
Did I mention everything hurts.
Where, oh where did my sensible go?
