I have this lovely photo of a lovely mug of tea and a lovely jammy dodger cupcake. The jammy dodger is a biscuit - a teeny home made version here of course..and a big blob of jam is also hiding in the cake itself. Very clever and very lovely. A friend of Miss Dunnit's went to the trouble of making her a dozen as a birthday gift last month. So no..not an actual current photo, but taken specifically for joining in with Elizabeth's T is for Tuesday. And then entirely forgotten. How does that happen?
The view from my armchair is not exactly riveting from this angle, huh. The first thing I see are the ugly wires behind the boxes that we apparently have to service the TV. Hate that. I miss having a TV small enough to fit in the cupboard. On the other hand, that cupboard is now doing a good service as a linens cupboard in my bedroom...you can't have it all. You can also see at left a long piece of wooden veneer. It's an oak veneer actually and was waiting to have 'special' double sided tape applied to it so that it can in turn be applied around a convex surface. 'Special' tape to us crafters is acid free. To himself, it's a foam tape with an adhesive that'll rip your skin off if you let it. Ugh. Sticky. The veneer is being stored in my lounge room because it's been stored, measured and cut in the workshop and now needs to acclimatise before going to the customer's home. I hate this bit..the potential for spoiling it is huge..tripping, spilling, bashing...there are other places in the house that would be less potentially hazardous and therefore more suitable...but things come into the lounge room and then *pouf* they're forgotten. How does that happen?
Ah well, it's what gives our home character isn't it. I tell myself this often, as I dust the semi carved 3ft high wooden horse that's destined to go on a rocker. After all, it's standing behind my armchair.
