|Oh look, here's Birthday week gal Helen, at MY workdesk...day before the WOYWW crop.|
You know how I may have bragged a little about being Mr Dunnit's apprentice? Well, I'm enjoying it. But today, after a lot of labouring on site, and refusing tea and biscuits from the lovely client, I am absolutely cream crackered. I dried out after all the rain, my hair looks somewhat bedraggled and my arms hurt just to type. I may have to go to bed very very early.
You know how your grown up kid goes away for a few days and you think it will be nice to ccok some of the meals that she doesn't like and have quality time just the two of you. And your routine stays so utterly the same that her absence is to be honest, barely noticeable until you actually manage to think about real cooking - to welcome her home.
You know how a crafting deadline appears to be a motivation. It so works. Just one card behind now, and I'm erm...back at square one.
You know how you get a feeling that all is not well while you're rushing to do the die cutting stuff for a workshop. And then something gives and the plates are stuck with a die between them in the rollers and the handle won't turn. And then it does turn but doesn't operate the rollers any more. You may not know that horrible feeling that you've broken your Big Shot. I do. I so do.
You know that ironing board is really annoying now. It's been left, quite deliberately, in my line of vision as I enter the lounge room. I'm thinking that I may put it away before I've actually finished the ironing. After all, stuff on my desk may sit, hidden in plain sight for months, but this reminder of domestic inadequacy is doing my head in!
|These are the stamps that were partly visible on my desk last week...Dolly Mamas by Penny Black. Still love them..must be 10 years old by now!|
You know how you think it will be nice to catch up on emails and calls over the weekend and take some time to connect - see if there's anybody still forgiving enough to want to talk? And then your husband asks you to help him on site again in the morning. And how can you say no. Really, to those eyes and that lovely smile. Argh.
You know you've had a week, when you realise you're talking it through with a computer.
I hope you have a marvellous weekend!
