SELF PORTRAIT TUESDAY - RUDOLPH!



Gosh, Tuesday rolls around quickly. Caitlin's first day at Intermediate School (year 7) today. She loves school so it wasn't a drama. Elliot and I were even allowed to go into the classroom with her. Miss Bolger, her new teacher, seems nice (yes, Jim's daughter!). Elliot starts tomorrow. Note to self - expect a wee drama!

So, Self Portrait Tuesday . This month's challenge is kind of a warts and all approach, no glamour shots (not that any glamour shots have ever emerged when I'm in front of the lens!). Anyway... this is a real self-portrait taken by moi this morning. No makeup, hair not done and accentuating my large red nose (hence, Rudolph). Large red nose part of an ongoing (read 3 year) undiagnosed ear and nose problem which has ENT specialists and Dermatologists bafffled. Currently trialing various dosages of prednisone to get it under control. We're down to 10mg per day (from an initial 60mgs) but it's obviously now not working. I think the next step is a referral to a rheumatologist. Some auto-immune thing they think. At least my ears are no longer raw (not pretty I can assure you).

So that's me, Tuesday!
