1 October 2018


  • My September has been spent recovering from spinal surgery, so today’s ‘now’ post might look a little sparse!

  • My biggest achievement has been allowing my body time to recover. I’ve rested completely, and am finally seeing the benefits.

  • I have not freaked out about having 4 weeks off work (at the start of a new 1 year secondment) - thankfully my employer has been very supportive.

  • I’ve definitely felt the benefits of having podcasts recorded up until the end of the year during September.

  • While recovering I have managed to listen to LOTS of great books.

  • I’ve also completed some creative online courses and done lots of drawing on my iPad. I feel a new direction for Martine Makes forming.

What Next?

  • I want to continue making art daily.

  • I need to focus on getting my physical strength and fitness back.

  • I am looking forward to returning to work and finding my feet in an exciting, new role.
